A girl at the NARS counter recommended this for my eyebrows. She applied it for me, and I was sold. It was a perfect color match for me, but more importantly for a review; it looked natural and blended easily. I apply it with a eyeliner brush. Sometimes I also use it as a liner or shadow. It's not cheap, but I think this will last me a year!

I use this to cover my grey when I am overdue for colour. My hairdresser told me about it - and she works on top celebrities in NYC. I have ashy brown hair which is highlighted. I use a contour brush and it looks fantastic.

This is the shadow I go back to again and again. I like to use it as a daytime tightliner, smudged into the crease, with either Edie or Abyssinia. It is gorgeous and subtle.

I haven't been a fan in the past of NARS shadows, but after shopping around a bit I bought several of them recently and am very pleased. Bali is a matte dark neutral/cool brown which looks great in the crease. I wear very neutral makeup and was looking for something polished but conservative for work. I wound up with all about eve all over, cairo on the lid (also great) and bali in the crease. I also wet a brush and use bali as a liner. The shadow looks great on skin. Other brands can look chalky, or too thick/unnatural (MAC is like this on me). For such a dark color, it blends so well and really enhances my dark brown eyes. I am glad I have revisited this brand. The shadows are so much better than I remember that I am wondering if there has been a change in formula since I tried them last. Only negative is the packaging which gets dingy looking quickly and feels cheap when opening/closing. But, who cares when it looks so pretty on?

I am japanese so my eyebrows grow out black but my hair is dyed dark brown. I thought an eyebrow pencil was the way to go..but when I went to the NARS counter, the lady recommended me THIS product instead. According to her, all I needed was something to color in my eyebrows and give it more of a defined look. I was skeptical at first just because of the price..but I ended up buying it anyways.
I am so happy I picked this up! It makes a huge difference in photos and it stays put all day!
I would recommend this as an eyebrow liner :)

I use this in my crease with almost every neutral look I do. I always like to have a deepened crease, but without looking over done. It seems to go with every color from greys, browns, peaches, beiges, taupes, greens and even some pinks and purples. I use this every single day.
However, I discovered that MAC Concrete is a near exact dupe of this, for a fraction of the cost. I own both now, and I see no difference in texture, blendability (blends smoothly seamlessly), and lasting power.

This is my most used Nars eyeshadow. Its described on the Nars website as a neutral taupe which i think is quite accurate. The colour is a dark greyish brown. I use this to line my eyes when I don't want the harshness of black especially during the day. It is also one of my favourite crease colours and as an added bonus its also a great brow colour. I think some Nars shadows are a bit of a disappointment but this one is a winner in my opinon. Oh and I love the packaging of the Nars Singles - too cute!!

I love this shadow! Bali is a dark gray with possible some brown tones. Definitely cool-toned, and I find it works great smudged around eyes as liner that is smokey but not over the top. Many people like this with a full on grey or smokey eye look, but I actually like to combine it with a bronzey or gold wash shade for a striking look (like UD Toasted or Kalahari I). I have this in the Nars Best palette. The Nars eyeshadow singles are sort of pricey, so I was glad I got the chance to try this in a palette before buying. It also works well as a brow color.

this is one of my favorite neutral shadows... i was looking for a matte greyish brown to use in a smokey eye for my best friends wedding, and this shadow turned out to be exactly what i was looking for... my dress was a dark truffle brown and i didnt exactly want my makeup to match... i paired it with just a hint of brown (matte as well) and a nice shimmery olive green..
like one of the previous reviewers, i also like to use this over a black eyeliner to get that smoked out/smudged effect for everyday neutral looks... it softens out that harsh edge the black would have by itself, but its just dark enough to blend well with it... if youre into smokey eyes this is a must have in your makeup it... it adds great dimension to flat and harsh blacks

I love this eyeshadow. I use it to fill in my eyebrows (I am asian with black eyebrows and medium tone skin) and it is the perfect match. Nars shadows are highly pigmented so it has great staying powder. Although it does lean towards the pricey side I find that the shadow lasts a long time. I wear it everyday and only need to apply a small amount.
