Filled with nine different eyeshadow shades, the NARS Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette enables you to add a subtle wash of toasted taupe or subtle shimmer for an understated, everyday look. Or, you can go all-out with the warm coppers and flattering pink shades for something a little different—but nonetheless on-trend.

Housed in a beautiful gold compact embossed with a sunray design, the shade names are classic NARS, conjuring images of the Californian sun or the sands of the Great Indian Desert: Delirium, Dune, Morongo, Seven Heaven, Oro Grande, Seduced, Sunstorm, Thar and Indian Wells. See? Endless possible looks in one pocket-sized palette.

The NARS Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette also launched alongside a limited edition highlighter and bronzer compact ($45 (opens in new tab)/£37 (opens in new tab)). Featuring the same beautiful embossed design as the eyeshadow palette, this is the perfect companion to warm up and add radiance to your complexion— and you're basically getting two products for the price of one.

If you're experimenting with eyeshadow for the first time, be sure to use an eye primer to prevent your eyeshadow from creasing or migrating, and follow our guide on how to apply eyeshadow for all the beginner's tips and tricks.
