Misfit duo is a gorgeous duo of a soft beige and rich green on my coloring I get a true green. I created a few different looks with this duo and I love each look. The shadows are highly pigmented and blend out fanticastically. I plan on picking up a few more duos by Nars.

I love, love, LOVE this eyeshadow duo! I especially love the green shadow that it comes with. It is highly pigmented and really brought out the green in my hazel eyes. I was afraid the color would look a little garish on my NC20 skin, but it didn't! In fact, it quite complemented it. I would totally repurchase I plan on giving more NARS eyeshadows a try! This product is worth every penny!

Love the teal/green side, not so crazy about the neutral side. It's a big disappointment. When I first saw it, I thought, "WOW! Look at that teal! Wait, what's with that other one??" They shouldn't be paired together IMO. The teal (which is supposed to be emerald but I don't see it at all) is bold and bright, it should have came with another bold color. Especially for the price. I can't believe I paid $32 just cause I loved the teal. Also, the neutral color is chalky and barely shows up at all.

I purchased Misfit simply because of the amazing teal colour! The eyeshadow itself if very very very pigmented, I used my MAC 239 to apply it and blend it out using my MAC 217. At first I was pretty scared this will stain my white brushes, but it's all good , the colour came out in the wash. The beige side isn't great to be honest, I tried to use it on my eyes as a base colour and I could barely see it on my NC20 - NC25 skin tone, it was also rather chalky and not pigmented at all. But like I already mentioned, the whole purpose of purchasing Misfit is for the green colour, it is a must have for dark brown eye girls like myself!. When I pan on this I will def repurchase (or if it ever becoms discontinued I will stock up for sure)

i really like this duo, even though i usually stick to neutrals. i find the aqua/green side very wearable and blendable, while still being pigmented. the ivory side is only OK, it doesn't really do much for me, but its not horrible either.
i'm NW15 and my favorite ways to wear misfit are: 1. aqua on the lid, mac samoa silk in the crease, ivory side for highlighting and lower lashline, black liner; 2. ivory side all over upper lid (lash to brow), BB naked in crease very lightly, aqua/green side on lower lashline, tightline upper waterline w/black, some bright aqua on lower waterline.

I picked this up alongside the Rated R duo. I had seen the colour used before in a youTube tutorial and was instantly a sucker for the dark green. I was also glad to get a great neutral beige colour, which I often use now to blend out any harsh edges on my shadows along the crease of my eye. I am definitely more impressed with the green however, and love to pair it with the green-yellow in the Rated R duo!

This peacock green looked absolutely (and surprisingly) stunning on my olive skin. However faint and weak the ivory that it comes with is, the green/emerald/teal/turquoise makes up for it. I use it during the day, I use it for clubbing, this colour is simply perfect!

I always thought the green on this looked really pretty. There were several times when I almost bought it... but I didn't because the reviews always called this shade "more teal than emerald" and I already have Urban Decay's "Flipside" and didn't want another teal.
Today I was at Sephora and I was in the "stick my fingers in all the eyeshadow" mindset and once again I found myself looking at Misfit. I "swatched" the green shade and I immediately fell in love with the texture. I had to get it. The color payoff is wonderful and the texture is unbelievably velvety. The odd part - to me, it DOES look like an "emerald" color. Maybe with a hint of blue, but not enough that I would call it teal. It definitely is not a grass green - it's more like a forest green that's less yellow and more blue. Again, I think "emerald" is a good description.
As for the neutral shade with it that others don't like - it definitely does not have the same velvety texture as the green, but I still like it for a very sheer, natural color with a nice shimmer to keep it from being boring. I am very pale and the neutral shade is very close to my skin tone. The neutral shade will be an excellent base color for me when I'm going for subtle eyeshadow (not often, but once in a while!).
As with the Rated R duo, these are two shades that I like each of for different reasons and probably will not wear together. I personally think Misfit is nicer than Rated R, and I love Rated R.

I too bought this duo just because the teal looked very lovely. I even didnt bother to think if it would suit my skintone or eye color or anything else. after I tried it out, I love it even more. It is such a brilliant teal, and very specially that U couldnt find anything replaced. Would re-purchase, but kind of doubting if i will finish this duo, LOL

I'm NC30 with brown eyes and dark hair and honestly I bought this duo just because the teal looked lovely in the pan. I never though it would suit my skintone or eye color or anything. I tried it recenly and it is BRILLIANT. I love love love the color, and it doesn't really look weird on me (which is good news because I love teal and turquoise). It is very wearable and sweet, and you can try it on different bases. I did not find the shadows to be chalky or anything, they go very smoothly. The gold side is too light for my skintone, so it's a bummer. But I pair the teal-green side with other gold and green shadows. The teal side is defined as "emerald" but it doesn't get that dark unless you use a dark base like MAC Sharkskin, and it has a beautiful gold shimmer. Overall, I am very pleased with this duo. It's $32, yes, but for that unique color I would definitely buy it again.

LOVE the teal side!! I wear it as a think liner or just up to my crease and the beige shade as a highliter. The teal makes me eyes pop and is such a beautiful shade for me. Can look classy or edgy depeneding on the rest of my makeup. Like others have said the beiege side is nothing special, just another highlighter or wash color....they could have paired it with something better considering the price but it is what it is...I wont buy again bc I dont use it too often and dont see this running out anytime soon. Also, I think I could find this teal shade somewhere cheaper...

I love this if I'm going of a kind of edgier look. The shimmery beige shadow slides on like silk, and I use the teal/green shadow with a mixing medium to make liquid liner. It really makes your eyes pop. I wouldn't recommend using the teal shadow as liner without foiling it though, because the powder can drop on your cheeks...and when you try to wipe it off, it can make you look green and sickly! If you do your eyes first it's not a big deal, but if you've already done your face makeup it's really annoying.

As a product: Half of this duo fits into the NARS "stereotype" (brilliant, well-pigmented, silky shadows), while the other half seems straight from a drugstore line. The shadow is a bit pricy at $31, and comes in classy black rubberized compact with a full mirror.
As a color: Misfit is a stunning, shimmering emerald/teal, and a basic satiny beige. The beige has nearly no pigment and simply creates a chalky caking on the eye (although I recently discovered it makes a nice translucent "setting powder" to go over cream eyeshadows to prevent shifting/creasing). The teal completely redeems this duo, however. It is absolutely unique; definitely not aqua, definitely not green, but a beautiful shade somewhere in the middle. The duo is neutral/cool.
As a whole: I normally would not recommend a $31 eyeshadow duo when only one color is worth it (in my opinion, anyways), but the teal is such a brilliant shade that absolutely pops on my blue eyes that I cannot say too many bad things about the duo with both shades taken into consideration.
Complementary Products: Apply a shimmery champagne over the lid (i.e. Smashbox Champagne). Tightline with a black shade (i.e. NARS night clubbing), and use a push brush to dot the teal under the waterline. Don't skimp on the black mascara, and finish with a bronzer and a sheer nude gloss (i.e. Lancome Chai Freeze or Dior Crunch of Chocolate)

NARS describes Misfit as “ecru and emerald (both with shimmer)”. The green side looks like more of a teal shade on me than emerald. It’s not a bright grass green or anything like that.. not what I picture in my mind when I think emerald. The shimmer is very subtle – almost matte depending on the lighting. The light beige “ecru” shade barely shows up on my fair skin when applied, but it does an amazing job hiding any redness or pinkish tones in the skin. In the pan, it looks rather boring… It isn’t a shade that I’d gravitate towards if it were on its own but I’m certainly glad to have it now. Makes a good base coat for any colour of shadow.
The lasting power is great… The NARS people will usually use one of their cream eye shadows as a base, but I use this shadow without a base and it lasts all day on me with minimal creasing or fading. I’ve found that the lasting power is much better when this shadow is applied wet.
The texture is highly pigmented and easily blended. Can be applied sheer and blended together or applied wet (spray a tiny bit of water onto your brush). The teal side looks amazing when used wet as an eyeliner paired with some black kohl on the waterline.. Makes my dark brown eyes pop.
I like the packaging as well – rubbery and sleek with a nice mirror inside. It would most likely survive if dropped, which is good for me since I do tend to drop my poor compacts.. and no crappy little brush to take up space.
A definite repurchase for me:)

I love the teal. I purchased this duo for the teal alone. The ecru color is pretty faint on my NC30 skin, but I wear it on my lids, with the teal in the crease.

I LOVE the teal side of this. Super smooth with lots of pigment. The perfect teal, leaning more towards green. Not quite metallic, but shimmery. The other cream shimmer side is dry and unpigmented.I wish i could give this a 3.5

I was wooed into buying this exhorbitantly expensive duo by the name (bringing to mind Marilyn in The Misfits -- those Nars names, God, it's such clever marketing) and by the saucy emerald-green color (after seeing a photo of Beth Ditto wearing a green eye with a huge thick sweep of black liner I was jonesing for a green eye moment of my own). So I bought this, get it home, slap some of it on -- and I look like trailer trash. Fuck, I thought, how could I (blue-eyed, no less) be so naive as to think I could pull off green eyeshadow. I washed it off, and later tried again. This time, I used the ecru as a wash all over my lip, and then applied a line of the green along my lashline with an angled brush, flicking it up a little at the ends. Now THIS was what I was thinking -- playful, lush, summery, Sophia-Loren-y. The green is VERY soft and blendable, and the ecru (on my at least) just smooths out any veins or discoloration about your eyes -- would also be a nice subtle highlighter for the browbone. The duo isn't too shimmery/sparkly, and I like that -- i feel with a 'statement' green like this, there's no need for piles and piles of glitter. I love you, Nars -- now how about lowering your prices a touch?

I have to say I really only like the teal side of this. It's bright and smooth and very pigmented. The cream-colored side, by contrast, is unpigmented and chalky. When I finally did get it to show up after applying it wet it was this hideous shade of yellow, making me look jaundiced. I'd buy this duo again but only because I have yet to find a dupe of the teal side.
