I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT. Made me look flawless...so easy to put on...glowy.... BUT BUT BUT IT BROKE ME OUT SO BADLY ON MY CHIN. And reading the reviews here, I realize I am not alone. I tried so hard to keep it, but it totally wrecked my skin.
This is a nice duo. I am a NARS junkie, but this one I could live without. Don't get me wrong, it's very pretty. The colors match perfectly and the shadows are very pigmented. They wear remarkably well. It's just that they are SO pigmented, they are not subtle. I can only wear this duo if I'm wearing a blue top. Otherwise, I look like that character from the Drew show with the caked on blue eyeshadow! Use a light hand, wear pastel blue and you'll be set. Otherwise, you won't use it often.
This is an AWESOME liner. It's better than any of the NARS e/s when used wet as a liner. I suspect maybe the previous users should have put more water in the shadow making it more dense. It's very pigmented and looks *almost* black when on -- but blue enough to make this AA girl's brown eyes POP. The touring NARS artist used this on me and my then-bf even said it was amazing as a liner! Dramatic and subtle at the same time. Interesting! I don't like it used as a shadow, however.
I wore this in highschool, which is odd considering it's more of a mature fragrance. Funny how taste changes because I revisited it recently and it makes me feel a little nauseated. Too rich, floral and musky. Sorry ladies! I really wanted to love it again!
Grown men love this! At work, they beg me for what perfume I'm wearing so they can get it for their wives. It smells like cotton candy and vanilla. But don't put on too much or you'll give yourself a massive headache!
This is my highschool scent. Boys LOVED it so much they'd follow me around! If boys like it, so do men -- that's what I've found. Men are such simple creatures! I never used up a huge 100ml bottle I bought in the 90s and you know what? It's STILL good more than a decade later. If I ever run out, I'll get another just to have this nostalgic scent. I don't know anyone else who still wears it!

I LOVE THIS EDT!!!! I have tried the musk and the EDP. They just aren't the same. My friend was walking through Bloomingdale's when a sales associate tied a ribbon perfumed with Narciso on her wrist. We met up and saw a movie later -- and throughout the movie I kept smelling waves of warm amber, honey and just loveliness. That was it! I had to go out and buy some! I am a sweet/fruity fragrance person. I do not like musky scents. But this one is special. It's sexy. It's mysterious. It's luxe. I just wish it lasted longer. Can anyone confirm that the ribbons they're handing out as promotions are scented with the EDT or not?
I bought this based on my beloved MUAers. Sadly, I didn't love this e/s! I bought it with Vex and it just didn't look as flattering on as I'd hoped. I'm Asian NC-25. Maybe it's because I own about 100 eyeshadows... but this one wouldn't even make it into my top 50. I really wanted to love it -- I love greens, just not this one.
I love the Night series, but this one started chipping and breaking in the first week I bought it. You guys warned me this would happen and it did! My other Night shadows do not do this. The color was pretty nice and it was beautiful as a liner, but I do not want it breaking! I loved the packaging when I owned a few NARS eyeshadows but now I am sick of looking under it to see what color it is. See-through window? HELLO NARS! Pro pans? Something to stop the guessing game! =)
I'm on the fence on this one -- because I own all the other Night eyeshadows. I love love love it compared to other brands, but it is very similar to Night Breed when used as an es and el. I love blue on my brown eyes because it makes them pop. Used as an es, it seems a little too blue, though. You have to use it VERY lightly. Overall, because I am a NARS junkie -- I gave it 5 stars. Tons of product.
Beautiful daytime smoky eyeshadow.
THIS IS MY HG eyeshadow for smoky eyes! Of all the Night series, this is my favorite for smoking up the corners of my eyes. It makes me look like I have false eyelashes on. (SWOON) It is SO striking. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this shadow!
I have about 60 MAC eyeshadows so for me to replace one is a coup! That having been said, I am on my third Mulch. Bought this after a friend's wedding makeover. It must be perfect for that polished bride look because I also saw it featured in InStyle magazine's makeup pro pics for bridal eyeshadow. It's wonderful as a smoky eye, deep bronze khaki look. If you line with a khol you look like a desert temptress. Exotic. Fresh. Mysterious. Love it!
I bought this based on reviews here. Very disappointed! NC35 Asian with olive/yellow undertones. I was so thrilled with Night Porter, China Blue & Night Clubbing I was sooooo looking forward to loving Fuji. It looked really dull on my eyelids and unremarkable when used wet as liner. Being an eyeshadow/liner ho, it did not live up to my standards. Night Porter is MUCH better used wet as a liner! As an e/s too!
I was really disappointed with Thunderball. I love love love using blue/teal shadows as liners when wet. But this one just didn't flatter. Night Porter really makes my eyes pop, as does China Blue. I wanted to love Thunderball but ended up taking it back to Nordie's.
