Nars has released several gorgeous 6 color palettes with some great combinations of already-existing shades making these great for travel. I typically have a hard time finding palettes where I love every shade but Nars has released some great palettes with enough neutrals for me to fall completely head over heels.
Another great thing about these palettes is that you can often find some with one share from some of the duos. For example, Modern Love Palette has that gorgeous plum shimmer side of Habanera Eyeshadow Duo which I would have never bought individually because I can’t wear greens. Same goes for the new Essential Eye Palette which has that pretty cream champagne side of Unconditional Love Cream Eyeshadow Duo. My only gripe about these is their limited edition factor and the rubber packaging can easily get dirty and sticky if not super careful with them. Also, I’d love to see some with new exclusive shades, maybe as a preview for what’s coming up next mixed in with existing shades.
Here are the three that I own:
Essential Eye Palette #9952 (currently available online at Neiman Marcus)

Bottom Row: Nepal, Ondine, Thunderball
Modern Love Palette #9950 (currently a Nordstrom Beauty Exclusive, but expected to be back for sale at narscosmetics.com in the near future – as of now, it’s no longer online at Nordstrom, but there’s a good chance their beauty locator can try and find one for you instore and have it shipped to you)
