Should I Walk By Again?What to do with a $70 palette you didn’t fall in love with at first sight (and try)? Well, I couldn’t find it in my heart to sell it – that’s the thing with makeup. Once you crack open that packaging and use it, bam. Instant depreciation. Doesn’t matter if you’ve only swiped it ever so gently once or twice – there’s no way you’ll be able to justify selling it at its original value (I mean you can, but who’d buy it if they can get a sealed, unused one instead?). Unless it’s limited edition and unavailable anywhere else. Unlike designer bags or shoes that you can sell so close to their original price even if you’ve used them daily for the past x years but have taken care of them as if they were born out of your womb. They’re even passed down from generation to generation with some even appreciating in value. But makeup? Umm, tell me again why I shell out $$$ for this shit. Going back, my answer to the question I posed above is – try a second time and force yourself to fall in love with it (!!!). Kidding. But if you really don’t, then let go of the thing and swallow the fact that you hafta sell it (or give it away for free! you choose), even for half the price you bought it for. The question then is — will I be swallowing that painful truth for this NARSissist palette?
The Verdict X Tries AfterSo I used this palette countless times over the course of 3 months — and I’ve to share that I may have fallen in love with it. It wasn’t love at first sight. It wasn’t The Fault in Our Stars the-way-you-sleep kind of love where you fall “slowly, but all at once”. It was more of the really slow kind of love — each day you see him, you tell yourself “I really don’t like him, but let’s see what he’s got to give anyway“. And then day by day, as you see his efforts and his genuine intentions — you slowly, brick by brick, tear down that wall you built. At the last brick, you realize you’ve liked him all along. You just carried too many pre-conceived notions to realize it. I know right. What the hell is going on here. I swear, I’m not speaking from experience, haha. Anyway, that’s what I felt with this palette. Day by day, the more I used it — the more I realized it’s not as bad as I initially thought. Granted, it has its weaknesses — dry and patchy, etc. But I find the other shades that aren’t are still very usable despite of it. Heck, even the dry shades are usable if I’m not so fussy for that day to work in more effort than the usual. I’ve just been spoiled by my previous NARS lovers (duos, to be specific) that are perfectly buttery and creamy smooth that I expected the same from this one. But you can’t have it all, right? With the duos, you get less variety but great quality. With this palette, you get a HUGE assortment but less than stellar quality. But less than stellar quality doesn’t mean it has to be friendzoned instantly. I mean, even the (real) person you love has their weaknesses. But you focus on each other’s positives instead and even cultivate those traits so that the two of you can grow into a more loving and more pleasant relationship. And that’s what I resolve to do with this NARSissist palette. Focus on its beautiful shades that I can’t deny loving and just not stress myself with its weaker shades (hell, don’t use them girl if you don’t like them). So there. I wish I could’ve been a more diligent blogger and photographed all the other instances I used this palette. But I’m not. Sigh. Here’s one look I managed to take a photo of, though. Again, because I’m such a gooood beauty blogger, I forgot which shades I used here. My guess would be Nepal (soft sheer rose), Brousse II (shimmery blackened violet metallic) and Mekong (espresso infused with gold).
Final ThoughtsI guess what I’m saying here ladies is open up your hearts and minds more than the usual because you never know… the love of your lives may have been in front of you all along but you were too stubborn and preoccupied with other worldly matters to realize it. Haha. Seriously though, sometimes we’ve played with so many beauty products, we’ve set such high standards that we fail to appreciate the simpler yet still equally functional items that cross our way. But then again.. we don’t just pick $70 off an apple tree. P.S. – Thank you for all the wonderful comments and feedback on my first Youtube video. AHHHHHH!!! I felt like doing cartwheels while reading them. Seriously, my next video will be those cartwheels. THANKS GUYS!!
