Sunday Stash Shopping #92: NARS Loaded

I bought the NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette a while back when it was launched. Thought it was a pretty decent deal with so many eyeshadows in it. Also, it has a few warm colours that I enjoy using. At first swatch, they were pigmented and smooth. The texture is quite soft, and kicked up a bit of powder. When I applied using a brush, the pigmentation is not as intense, and the brushes to kick up a LOT of powder. I have to be careful to get rid of excess powder before applying on my eyes. Other than that, these shadows blend beautifully and for more intense colour payoff, I just dab with my fingers.



Is this palette a limited edition one? I’m not sure! I’ve really been enjoying using this, and I’m glad I bought it even if it means troubling a friend to purchase it for me. Here are a couple of looks I created.



I haven’t been updating the blog as regularly because the computer has been acting up. That’s why I was gone for a couple of weeks, and when the computer was finally OK, I quickly uploaded the review of Clinique foundation which has been sitting in the draft! So I also quickly scheduled ahead a few posts that I’ve already written, in case the computer goes nuts again. I’m not very active on social media except for Instagram, so you can always find me there. I also created another account as YoyoNoMoar to document my food and maybe workouts, so you can also find me there. I just take photos using my phone camera and upload with minimal editing. Keeping it real and casual there. And apologies to my fellow blogger friends. I have NOT been reading except for the occasional one or two if I stumble upon it but life’s been hectic. I’ll be back to my commenting mode when things settle down.

Hope your weekend has been awesome, and hope you’ve been keeping well!

  • Those eyeshadows look great on you (and now I’m wise enough to know they are too warm for me, don’t bother to try them… lol). I’m loving your new Instagram, gives me tips and makes me want to eat your stuff!

      These eye shadows are warm indeed. I thought I could post more on that Instagram account, like things I eat every day, but LOL, sometimes I just forget. And sometimes I eat the same things, so it gets boring 🙂

  • Am I selfish to say I am glad I am not the only one who is going through computer problems?! LOL! Seems like we both are in the same shit now. Haha! I was so tempted to buy this when it first launched but the more and longer I ponder and look at it, I think I have many similar shades already. The perils of a neutral palette lover…

      LOL my laptop shows signs it’ll die soon, and I’m expecting it to, since it’s already 5 years old, but it’s proves me wrong every single time. It seems to be OK again so I have no idea. HAHAHA!
      I love my neutral eye shadows. People say you can’t have too many, but let’s get real. There’s no way we can hit pan on any of them so yes, we already have too many and don’t need any more. Not that it matters 😉
