MakeupByTiffanyD recently made a video showing her viewers how to depot NARS eyeshadow duos using only floss and sheer will. I decided to follow suit and here are my current ones right now. I ended up doing what Makeup Magpie did and just pried the damn things from the compacts, which was pretty easy to do with a thin-enough pin and a little bit of patience. Some of them cracked a little because my glue wasn't as weak, but nothing major and heart-wrenching.
I thought I'd take you through my NARS duo collection as of late.
First Row: Charade, Dogon, Grand Palais
Second Row: Habanera, China Seas, Kauai
I have another one, Paramaribo, that I’ve set aside for a past/future blog sale. If it doesn’t sell, I think I just may keep it… and get a bigger blank palette! Just kidding! But let me know what you think I’m missing. I have my eye on Eurydice, Kuala Lumpur, Brousse, and Surabaya, but let me know if I’ve glossed over some gems.
The pans automatically magnetize to a blank palette, like the ones I use (from Wild Peach!). In case you were wondering. Because that is actually helpful information.

This is awesome, I love how they look in the pallet all together like this 🙂
Glad you think so too. 🙂
Soooo pretty, especially when they’re all together like that. I suspect one would feel less guilty about depotting NARS Duos because the compacts become gross as hale…
Right?? So pretty. I want to hug them. LOL I had to tape up my Orgasm blush since it got really gross, but I read a comment online that said you can spray it with some sort of silicone spray or something?
Keep Paramaribo! Ang ganda niya!
^ Haha agree with Bea! And weird ako lang ba pero nagiging sticky siya after a while?
(Oo, baka itago ko na hahaha)
No, they get sticky talaga. Parang the rubbery part melts.
Waw ! This is pretty ! Great job !
Thank you, Michelle!
I spilled micelle water on a relatively new blush and now it’s permanently gunky 😦 WTF is wrong with NARS containers huhu. This custom palette is a work of art, miss. You can even wedge a brush in the middle just to keep it all stuck.
They get sticky in hot weather for some reason. Oo nga no!
omg I love makeupbytiffanyD! hehe your palette looks so pretty and I’m especially loving the Kauai duo<3
Glad you think so!
I’ve been eyeing (ahem) Grand Palais for ages! I’ll try to hold out until spring, but your post just reminded me of how pretty and versatile it is. I also like the look of Blade Runner, though I doubt I’d get much use out of the colors–I think the name is the motivating factor there…
It’s so cool that you can just click the pans into a magnetic palette, but I’m not sure I could ever bring myself to depot anything from NARS! Plus, keeping products in their packaging limits my storage space, and thus the number of expensive duos I can buy. 😀
(HA!) It’s really so great. 😀 I think Blade Runner is a great supplement to a pretty well-rounded collection, as accent colors or something. I imagine the red shade would be a great blush, too, actually! HAHAHA I tried not to get suckered into it, also because of the name.
You can easily pop them back into the case! 😀 That’s why I’m so excited by this. MAC, Rouge Bunny Rouge pans need to be BURNED and MELTED so this was a big revelation to me lol.
