NARS came out with the Summer Unrated Eyeshadow Palette a few days back. Luckily I got to swatch it at one of my visits to Sephora.

Passion meets pleasure in this limited-edition palette of 16 eyeshadows in matte, shimmer, and glitter finishes.

Since this is not a detailed review I will be stating how the eyeshadows performed while I was swatching them on my arm. Firstly I like the color story of this palette. It is beautiful indeed. That's what attracted me to this beauty. However not every shade performs consistently (at least while swatching). Few of the mattes were very powdery. Also I had to swipe some of the glitter shades multiple times to see the color pay off. While all the shades seemed blendable, some are more easier to work with than others. Moreover, there was definitely fallout with the glitter shades. So I recommend using a primer.
In conclusion if you are in the market for warm-toned, neutral palette with matte, shimmer, and glitter finishes, then you might like this palette.
