My fav Nars duo! & I have a ton.
This one's amazing w/ my very dark brown eyes. It's also surprisingly wearable... Is pretty subtle (doesn't scream makeup) & isn't too dark yet makes my eyes pop. Versatile too as I use it like a neutral.
I like pairing this w/ clear red gel blush (Nars Beverly Hills tint stick.)
simply delicious buttery formula. i use the dusty lilac color more than the soft salmon pink shade, but both are great for everyday looks. i use them to blend out darker colors through the crease because i tend to go for a smokier eye look, but i also sweep them all over my lids and pop a sultry shade in my outer corners sometimes. i would wear them alone, but i notice that they do fade throughout the day.
I love this duo, the color payoff is great and they really compliment my brown eyes and brown hair. This duo is great for a day look at work, but easily transitions in to a great night look with more dramatic eye liner. love it!
My first foray into Nars eyeshadows and I decided to go with a matte duo because I find that those are often the trickiest textures to get right. I also wanted to compare them to my MAC mattes (Omega, Charcoal Brown, Quarry and Copperplate) because I love them to death. To be completely honest...I think the Nars shades are better. Great color payoff for muted colors-one brush swipe for each color was all I needed-and lovely to blend. The pinky color is more pigmented than the purple, but they look fantastic together with a little bit of a shimmery cream color on the inner corner and as a highlight. Very natural, but with a darker smokey look to it. I think this is definitely going to be a go-to duo for Fall and I will undoubtedly pick up a few more Nars eyeshadows. They are expensive ($33), but they're a great value!
I bought this duo because I'm really into wishy washy colours that are muted but still in the purple family. I found that with a "clear" base such as Urban Decay or Too Faced, the colours are a greyed out version of what they are in the pan. BUT over a purple base like MAC's mauvism paint, NYX's stick concealer in lavender, or any cream eyeshadow, the colours are much more apparent. I would say over a purple base, the purple side looks very similar (softer) to MAC's memorabilia and slightly more purple than the infamous dove feather from mac. The pink side has a slight sheen. Overall both colours are really easy to blend, and are soft yet pigmented colours.
I love this eye shadows, and it is something i can wear everyday, this shadows can also be layers to get smokey eyes, but i would also use a little more color with it.
I personally like this eyeshadow duo. I have brown/hazel eyes with some green to them, and this brings out my eyes so much. I can understand why people might not like it, because it is a little difficult to apply. The trick is to pack on the eyeshadow, which can be annoying. Use a great base, and then I use NYX jumbo pencil in yogurt to bring out the pink shade. If you are looking for a quick eyeshadow duo from NARS, this isn't the one for you. It takes time to pack on the shadows but if you have the time, it's truly beautiful on the eyes.
I would have never picked this out on my own, but after watching missglamorazzi on you tube rave about it I decided to pick it up. It really makes my blue eyes pop, and I love that it is matte but not at all chalky. Got compliments throughout the day. Very happily surprised by this duo!
Horrible! It makes my eyes look tired and it stings my eyes like crazy (it literally make my eyes cry shortly after I apply the eye shadow). I had to discontinue it.. No more Nars products for me, a total rip off: Much more of a miss than hit. Awful.
Beautiful! Finally an everyday product that is not loaded with shimmer and shine. Don't get me wrong, shimmer and shine have their places, but today, rare is the shadow that is not chock full 'o glitz.
The taupe stands out on my skin (very fair) and does not turn orange. The purple is perfect -- muted, which is good for my pale skin during the day, but not too sheer.
NARS products are expensive, but this one is worth it. I really think it is best to spend $$ on products such as this, when you want something that is wearable for day and not super high pigmented. For bright purple full of glitter, Wet 'n Wild all the way. For everyday, NARS!
