NARS night series palette photos & swatches

NARS Night series was released in 2007 and is now somewhat rare. A very controversial palette here, it consists of 6 glittery shades ranging from a glittery white to blackened red.
Deemed by even some makeup gurus simply 'unusable', some of the night series Eyeshadows have gotten a pretty bad rep.

Maybe you can see why, these swatches are done very heavily:

Left to right: Night Star, Night Snow, Night Fever, Night Clubbing, and Night Fairy
No, it's not my camera quality or lighting, it is the fact that they did not show up. They are hard to use, hard to blend and night snow, night rider and night fairy simply refuse to show up even on pale skin. Right?
Wrong. A little imagination and a spritz of water on your brush makes the whole night series palette come to life.

Swatched wet:

hello glitter!
I used this palette wet and the colors were vivid and stunning. My camera could not capture the way the glitters reflected, it looked almost like my eyelids were glossy.

Night rider is all over the lid, night fever in the crease and night star blended from the crease upwards. A dabble of night snow highlights the brow bone and inner corner.

Lesson learned, a drop of water can turn NARS Eyeshadow into works of art.
