This is perfect for liner or just to deepen the outer v and all over the lid for a sexy smokey eye.
Its super super pigmented and its very versatile.
I have this and cordura(right side in the duo) and mekong is darker and more pigmented.
Cordura leans on the grey side. Id recommend this shade if you need something dark almost black and to work as a liner.

its a …

You need very little and it will show up as a medium-dark brown (no red in it). If used heavily it shows up almost as black--but definitely still brown. Can be used as a crease colour or smudged out liner. Versatile because of the pigmentation. Love using it. Makes a smokey eye very simple. Not recommended for beginners at m.u., because sheer colours are easier to work with.

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 Glitter Primer and pressed the shadow on my lid and no luck whatsoever in retaining that beautiful shimmer that had me pick it up in the first place.

And another bummer was the fact that this …

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 unique. Just beautiful!

A long time favorite of mine, I can't believe I have never before reviewed this eyeshadow! I have brown eyes and I used this for an eyeliner often (both as a dry shadow and as a wet liner when paired with Fix+) and even all over the lid when I want a very dramatic look. The very subtle flecks of gold in this different sort of dark brown make this color one of the most unique I have in my …Read more

I tried this on in Sephora today and couldn't resist. I've been in an eye makeup funk -- my black liners look too harsh on me lately and the eyeshadow-as-liner with my lighter browns and deep mauves and purples was boring and making me look older. I'd accepted that I'd transitioned into a red lips and mascara girl for life.

But then I applied this gorgeous rich …

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 to have it. On my eyelid though it looked almost black. When I first used it for my smokey eye I looked like I was punched in the eye. The gold shimmer doesn't really show up on my lid either …Read more

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. Then sometimes I use with a 217 to smoke out my crease. I have also been know when my hair is very dark to use this as a brow filler....looks really pretty espeically on a night out. If you have dark …Read more

Luv nars mekong eyeshadow it is a grogeous dark brn with gold flakes. When im in a rush i will sweep mekong from lid to a lil pass crease and use urban decay foxy for a highlight, and you instantly has a daytime smokey eye. Very easy and pretty. Thanks to songbirddiva4life who hip me to nars mekong shadow.

Such a good quality eye shadow. It's dark brown with golden sparkles in the pan but when I put it on it comes out more black/brown with no sparkles. If I wet the brush first some sparkles show. When I bought it I wished it was more brown thank black, but after I got over that this has become my new black e/s and MAC Carbon has been kicked to the curb. It's not a true black, but it goes …Read more
