I decided to get this eyeshadow because it was on sale at Sephora for $10. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have gotten it. While the shades are very pretty in the packaging, it isn't very pigmented. Both the yellow citron and light green came out pretty sheer, even with primer. If you are a person who likes a more sheer and subtle color, you might like this. On days where I want a natural sheen and subtle shimmer on my lids, I'll use this. On occasions, I have used the lighter citron color as a face highlighter, which works wonderfully.

Well, first of all these shades are not matte they are frosty. The lighter shade of green is more of a white w/ iredescent green haze to it. The celery color has a bit of a frosty finish. I can pull off most greens very nicely including this one. However, I'm not thrilled with the pigmentation of this duo. Both shades needed at least two layers over primer for any real color to show up. You can find better pigmented shadows from the drugstore for less then half the price of this. This duo faded considerably as the day went on. Dispite the poor perfomance, I think the colors are very flattering on me and will keep this duo for my lazy no fuss days. I give this duo a 3. The three lippies are for: 1. Color 2. Quantity 3. Packaging.

Wow, i'm surprised at the low rating of this duo, guess it depends on your eye and skin color...Like the name implied, this duo contains 2 colors, one is a unique matte color that resembles soft fresh celery color and the other is an almost white color (matte also) with a slightly yellowish/greenish hue in it.The colors are very soft which makes it office appropriate (which I love...)
Anyway, on my nc40 yellow tone skin (asian) the eyshadow looks great, does not clash with my medium tan skin and just make my jetblack eyes pop and fresh looking. recommended during those hot day when the sun is piercing..:)
On top of UDPP the color turns up pigmented and easily blended. I took out one lippie though because the staying power is not great, it started to fade within 4/5 hours with UDPP, I do have very oily lids and live in humid and hot area..If I want it to stay longer I've to apply Mac Paint Pot over my UDPP first.
I bought it during a sephora sale for $10 and feeling like I get a very good bargain for the product. If I ever run out of this color though and have to shell out the full price I dont mind at all since I do get a lot of wear of it

i received this at Sephora for $10 during a great sale. These colors are not very easy to wear, but nonetheless I'm glad I purchased them just to have fun with. I will likely utilize these best by applying wet and using as eyeliner.

IDK why this has such a low rating... I think that the colors, though subltle, are super flattering. If Wicked was still available I'd totally repurchase! Poor me missed the Sephora sale =( I guess that I'll have to be on the look out here whenenever mine is finally done.

colors came off much better when actually placed on eye over udpp. got this for $10 off Spehora weekly sale! Good deal and lovely green combo.

This looks amazing on my C5/NC42 skin! Especially with a green base like NYX Horse Radish Jumbo Eye Pencil. I really like greens & I buy green shadows all of the time. BUT, I've never actually brought myself to wear them. This was literally the first greens I have ever worn (after many years of stocking up on green shadows) and because of how much I love the way it looked I'm definitely going to start cracking all of them open. I'm so glad that I bought 2!

Like the previous reviewer I bought this from Sephora on sale with Cheyenne. I would be pretty furious if I had paid full price. How did this duo get past quality control? If I didn't have other NARS duos I wouldn't ever buy from this company again. The quality is comparable to bottom of the barrel drugstore. No pigmentation, no staying power, poor blendability. Wicked is a major misnomer- they are two washed out green tinged shades. I'm pretty irritated with this, especially considering how lovely Cheyenne is.

OMG love this! I am NW20 with blue eyes/blonde and I thought it would not work for me but I absolutely love it. It's so beautiful, I don't desire to put anything in the crease. I received this from a wonderful swapper and could not be happier. The green works well all over and the yellow looks fantastic on the lid. I can see this working well with anyone but those with pink undertones.

Would I buy again?! Hxxx yeah! I love this e/s duo so much that the more I use it the more I love it. It's a very fresh green/grey cream colour plus a light yellow-green colour. They work perfectly together to give this clear, fresh and cheerful look. Please, next time when you go to the NARS counter try it on at least! It's simply my all time favourite!

These colors look really fresh and light for little makeup days. They brighten up my eyes but they don't last very long and become dull when I put them on top of my normal e/s base. The darker one has kind of the same effect on me that Stila's Kahlo did. All in all, these are nice but I'm not wowed.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Nice subtle sheer colors, great for daytime, but these e/s don't have the WOW i get with other e/s. Infact the colors are plain simple, but easy to wear alone or with other colors.

I was afraid the lighter, grayish-green side of this would be chalky and the pale lime green side too yellow, but both are actually very pretty and subtle. Plus the colors are soft enough to suit almost any skintone. This gets a four out of five from me though since I had to use it wet to get a decent amount of pigment.

One side of this duo is a washed-out celery and the other side is a brighter yellowy-green. I love these colors on my dark brown eyes. It really makes them pop. The light celery is *extremely* light and not heavily pigmented, so if you're a PPP it might not be the best choice for you. I needed a green set that was subtle but pretty and not too outrageous to wear to work in a corporate environment and this is it. I do think it's a bit expensive for the amount you get, but overall I would purchase again.

Why does Nars make so many duos with two highlighter shades? It really bugs me! Wicked is a duo of a very pale mint green with virtually no pigment and the other side is a light yellow green shade that can be layered for more intensity but the color isnt very flattering on me on its own. (nc30 brunette) I find i need a darker crease color, something to give this a little depth. For $30, the quality should be better, only one side is pigmented. i would not repurchase this one.

Nars shadows have been hit or miss with me, but this is a hit - exactly what I was looking for - a sheer peridot color to wear with my summer colors. I have blue hazel eyes and this is very flattering.

I got this duo after the MAC Madame B. collection was released. I had already bought metamorph and the darkest green of the duo is soooo similar to it! Although the Nars' is more green, it's as silky and luminous as metamorph.
Not worth getting it if you have the *cheaper* version.
Anyway, it's a nice duo that I'll be using a lot this summer.

These are the most amazing Green shadows. Green as an eye shadow is generally hideous,and green shadow on a green eye usually is usually even more hideous---But these shades of green are complimentary to green or hazel eyes. This duo is not for everyone and may not work well on everyone... So try before you buy.

Its okay. Its a nice shadow, Its not for everyone. The green really brings out my red eyes.

This is a pretty duo of pale greens. One side is an opal green and the other is a sheer shimmery yellow green. On my olive/MMM skin, the opal was a silvery opal with tinges of green, and the other shade was a very sheer yellowed green with shimmer. The two blended very well together--so well in fact that I could barely tell the difference between the shades on my lids. I'm on the fence about this one, especially considering I have shadows at home that can produce the same effect. The opal is unique though, but not worth buying the duo for one color.
