Looks like a rich dark chocolate brown with golden shimmer in the pan. On me it wears more like black-brown with only faint shimmer. Great as a liner. Will update once I try it wet. (Part of the...

What a huge disappointment this was! Swatched with finger it definitely picked up the shimmer but once applied to the lid it translated as black and no shimmer whatsoever. I even used Too Faced...

Mekong is a gorgeous deep espresso color with gold sparkles. I love using it to line my upper lashes. It is much softer than black, but yet deeper and richer than a standard dark brown shadow. Very...

I've worked with some pretty dark brown eyeshadows but Mekong by NARS is something different. In the tester it looks like a deep rich golden brown with gold shimmer/sparkles. Just beautiful. I had...

I love this shadow....its a deep, rich chocolate brown with a gold fleck shimmer to it. I use this in a few different ways:first I use this with a 219 brush as a soft, smudy liner around my eyes....
