Very pretty colors. These are more of an everyday neutral eye look. The colors aren't necessarily stand out colors but they are very pretty and apply fabulously. They are easy to blend! I'm addicted to Nars!!
This duo is 1 of my favourite eye shadow sets to wear. The colours are really nice and pigmented, and the texture is so buttery and easy to blend. The 2 eye shadows together really compliment my blue eyes, and they're very beautiful neutral shades. People seem to complain about the packaging getting dirty, but I find that it can be easily brushed off, and the benefits of the packaging definitely out-weigh that single negative point.
I really like this one. It's soft and buttery. It's not as pigmented as I expected and I find that I never use the two colors together because they are too similar and don't really show up with each other. I do like to use each color as a wash and it makes my blue eyes stand out. I worried it'd be a bit too warm on me but it looks really nice. Will buy again.
Wow, lovely smooth neutrals. The left side is like a very subdued version of mac's Woodwinked and the right side is like a lighter version of MAC's sable.
These colors are beautiful. They are highly pigmented, blend like magic and they last forEVER. Love this shadow, definitely pricey but I've had this duo for 4 years.
Gorgeous neutral duo, but compared to my other NARS duos, the pigmentation is lacking. But I still love it.
I agree with the previous poster, I am not 100% impressed by the colour pay-off.
I think the texture is amazing and super blendable, but the pigment isn't as intense as I thought it would be. I recommend applying it wet as well.
It still looks great and I am happy with my purchase.
I just wish I got a different eyeshadow duo as my first from NARS though! I played it safe with this one.
I love this but not amazed. The right color gives a smoky looks and I love it. Blending with the left one, it's really my perfect everyday look. (w/ alhambra left applied first) However, I found the payoff is far from expected. Applied wet, they are gorgeous, but otherwise I need to re-apply about 3 or 4 times with really dense brush to get the intensity I love. For the color, it's 5 definitely. But for the texture, really, it's only a 2 or 3.
This was my first Nars shadow and I was surprised by how much I liked it. I was never impressed by the testers at Sephora so I didn't expect much when I got this in a swap. My only regret now is not having tried Nars shadows sooner. I love this duo. The color itself is nothing that can't be duped but the quality of product just can't be beat. It went on smooth, blended easily and had almost no fall out. It wasn't chalky or overly shimmery. It's just perfect. I also love the packaging. It's sturdy and can take a beating without damaging the product inside and I love the fact that they give you a decent size mirror to work with. With all my shadows I doubt I'll ever hit pan on this but if I did I would definitely buy it again.
NARS Eyeshadow Duo in : KALAHARI Purchased for: $32.00
This is my first NARS shadow I have ever owned, and I must say the quality is fantastic. This particular shadow duo caught my eye, not only for the beautiful neutral shades, but because they come off as almost metallic. Or better yet they look like they are glowing, if you can understand what I'm saying.
One color is a soft daker brown, but looks almost plum. This the color that looks like it's glowing. I don't know how to descibe it, but yes, it looks like it glows.
The other color is a dirty golden bronze, and it does have the same glow effect as the brown shade, but not as vibrant.
Quality-wise, these colors provide an easy application. Smooth, vivid, and very blendable. They fade only slightly throughout the day, but the impact of the color still remains gorgeous.
I hear that NARS shadows, when traveled with, are very fragile, so that seems to be the only flaw with this product. I have not had any problems with it, but I do make sure to handle it with care.
Overall, I love the modern sleek packaging, the fantastic color payoff, and of course the unique neutral shades of the duo. This has become my favorite palette.
