NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

These eyeshadows are one of my most exciting things I've purchased in a while…and I've purchased a lot of things…I first laid eyes on this collection whilst at Bluemercury and was in awe of the shades. These Dual-Intensity shadows go on brilliantly; while I've only worn them wet, I've seen them applied dry and it looks amazing too. I decided to go with Dione, a shimmery silver and Himalia, a light but very shimmery gold.

Dione, on left, dry and wet, Himalia, on right, dry and wet.
The dry way, or normal way you could say, is very sheer and good for blending I can imagine. Wet is where the color's power and intensity comes out. I simply wet my brush with the water from my sink and when touched to the shadow, it almost soaks in the shadow. When I applied it all over my lid, since I've worn them alone, the color just pops with its metallic touch.

While pleased greatly with my shadows, I will say they are similar to my MAC shadow I bought from the Alluring Aquatics collection that came out this past spring. The MAC shade, Lorelai, is very reflective and is a great taupe color.

I wore Himalia yesterday at work and it lasted all day. Shadows that last all day are very important to me, even though I use Urban Decay's Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion as my base. These shadows don't crease and do not have any fallout either.

Overall I am very happy with my NARS eyeshadows and I encourage you to find your nearest NARS counter and experience them! Hannah xx
