The Nars Love Fest Continues- The Eyeshadows

Part 2 of my Nars spotlight, the eyeshadows.

In an eyeshadow I have 2 requirements:
1. It must be pigmented, I do not like wimpy colors.
2. It must be easy to work with. Fallout, fading, and unblendability (there, I made that word up) in my collection will be tolerated.

Thus far Make Up For Ever rules my eyeshadow world (more on that later), with Nars now coming up a fast second. What started with the Habanera duo has quickly grown into quite an impressive collection of 8 duos with more on the way. I am very impressed with these as they are silky, pigmented, wonderfully blendable, and long lasting. There hasn't been a duo that I have that I am unhappy with.

On the duos I have:
Caravaggio- This is a beautiful duo of a deep berry pink and a shimmering violet
Jolie Poupee- I love how Nars does matte, and this duo of matte violet and shimmering purple
Belly Dance- Deep sparkling emerald green with a matte eggplant purple.
Rated R- Sparling chartreuse and bright cobalt blue
Cleo- Shimmering seafoam green a deep silvery teal
Misfit- Neutral beige with the most stunning shade of sparkling emerald green to complement
Divine- A duo of mattes, bright pink and rich deep chocolate
Underworld- Smokey eyes personified, shimmering deep silver and blackened blue

I also have the holiday 2008 Sephora eyeshadow palette, which is a great way to start your collection. You can get it on sale here

Now it deserves to be mentioned, these aren't cheap. $32 will get you a duo, while $22 is the cost for a single. Are they worth it though, most definitely!

Enough talk, time to drool over the pics.

Below is the palette on the right in the pic above.I will try to come up with some looks in the next couple of weeks. I need to know though if I am alone in the Nars love? Somebody? Anybody?

I love NARS! I especially love their blushes and their multiples. My NARS collection isn't as extensive as yours but I'm hoping to get into the shadows soon. I just have SOOO many MAC ones that I just can't dive into NARS yet.

I have a couple of eyeshadow duos, Fez and China Blue e/s and I only have Orgasm and Taj Mahal blush. I want to get into more blushes from NARS though and I have not tried their multipes. I keep looking at them when I go to Sephora, LOL.

Jillian, you must try the eyeshadows. Not the glitter bombs, but the mattes which are amazing!

Amina, you are very welcome!

Valiohh, they really are amazing!

Anna, agreed 100%

Adina, I'm still a NARS virgin. ~blush~ LOL. I've been living in MAC's cave for a while. =P
But I'm now ready to try some NARS. Starting with the e/s. But I don't know which one to pick. =( There's so many of them. ~confused~
After looking at your swatches and color description, I'm down to either Underworld or Cleo.
Which one would you recommend?
For reference, I'm a NC20 with dark brown eyes. =)

Krasey Beauty said...

Caramel, no need to be ashamed. Allow me to ease you into it ;)

I think both Cleo and Underworld would look fantastic on you. Both would be amazing for smoky eyes.

Out of the two, I would go with Cleo first time around. Both colors are beautiful, and the duo is super versatile!

Caramel Geek said...

Thanks Adina! =)
Off to check out Sephora again. =P
