I have a very light but not porcelain skin tone, probably neutral/olive undertones, and am relatively new to makeup. I was looking for a product that would help me look professional and made-up but that wouldn't be too fussy and this duo fits the bill.Typically I wear a wash of the purple colour on the lid, with the highlight shade on the inner corner and under the brow bone, then use use a different brown or taupe to define the lower lash line, add a bit of liner and mascara- done. Admittedly, I was initially disappointed with the colour payoff (the grey-lavendar shade is quite pale) but after several weeks of use I have grown to appreciate the subtlety of it.. the colour complements the green in my eyes. I now choose this colour most work-days and would repurchase, but I think it probably IS overpriced.

It's kinda crazy I wasn't expecting this duo to have all the great reviews on it. I've had this nars duo for a while now and I can't remember why I got it but I'm almost sure it was because it looked totally diff with the lighting at Sephora or I grabbed the wrong duo. When I got home and tried it out I was so underwhelmed with the colors. The light off white shade is soo sheer I hate it I can't believe it's nars and so much money for that. The taupey dusty plum shade is OK it's also a soft muted shade but it does have pigmentation it's just supposed to be a softer color. To be fair I really like pigmented bold products I do not at all like sheer shades and stuff like that I just don't see the point when I could have saturated shadows that I can dust on lightly if I'm going for subtlety. And for the price of nars I definitely want my money's worth with a nice pigmented duo. The shades are pretty buttery feeling which is nice and I'm sure these are easy to apply as well. If the duo had a diff shade for the super sheer colorless lighter color I'd be happy. the purple shade im not crazy about but I can work with that one. Idk I just was not expecting the reviews to be so positive and so many!

I love this little duo! Purple shadows are my go to colors for my hazel eyes, and this muted, dusky lavender is absolutely beautiful. It's simple, clean, and subdued but really makes my eyes pop. I wear it all over my mobile lid with the silver shade on my brow bone and inner eye corner. I don't have to over think it because it always works. Typically I pair it with some plum eyeliner and muted pink blush/lipstick but it's really versatile despite being cool toned. Whenever I looked at it in a store it always seemed unassuming and lackluster, and I couldn't understand what the fuss was about. But after finally swatching it I loved the gleaming finish and the sophisticated colors. It's a lavender that isn't difficult to wear or garish at all. For my N10 skin it works well, and I like that I can sheer it out or build it up into a soft smokey eye. The texture is soft, easy to blend, and it's really pigmented. I don't like the rubbery packaging but it's not a big deal. It's a staple in my stash and I'm always thrilled with it every time I use it.

I've been on yet another eye shadow buying mania lately and many of my purchases have been NARS. I read some great comments about Tokyo and just became obsessed with having it. I have to admit, it's not the most "wow" combo going but it is so perfect for mornings when I'm in a rush and want to look a bit more "finished" than the effect of my bare lids. It's basically impossible to overdo these colours. The lighter shade all over, lashes to brow bone, with the "darker" (the term is relative as it's not really at all "dark") all over the mobile lid and I have a nice, polished and wide-awake look. Add a bit of black or dark brown liner and DONE! For a bit more definition, any cool toned brown shadow (from light such as UD Naked to dark like Cordura's dark side), grey, plummy grey or mauve shadow in the crease will work wonderfully, since the colours in Tokyo are so "easy-going" that they work with just about any other shadows you might have). If you like dramatic, bold eye looks, this is probably NOT for you but if you like subtle, easy and elegant, this is worth a look. I'm not sure that I'd repurchase Tokyo - the colours themselves are not all that outstanding, though the texture and application are wonderful - but I'm not likely to finish it in my lifetime (I'm getting up there in years!). However, I do enjoy having and using this but if I lost it, I honestly don't think I'd bother replacing it.

I bought this due to misleading lighting in Sephora--thought it was a workhorse taupe/vanilla duo--BUT I don't regret it. kattymat's description of the darker shade as purply-taupe-gray is pretty right--it's purple, but it doesn't give me a bruised eye, and it's subtle enough that I can wear it to the office without feeling like a teenager (so lovers of brights, you will probably find it boring!). It has a lilac brightening quality, actually, so I look a little better-rested. I generally wear the darker shade all over the lid except the inner corner, and the lighter shade for inner corner and blending into the highlight color.

First, Skin tone: Nc/nw 07-10 or Nars Gobi (currently) and Kat Von D lock it 44. I have Acne prone, sensitive, combination, oily skin. I have a lot of allergies. So I choose Nars over Mac because for me Mac has a lot of ingredients my skin cannot handle. I really like this dual eye shadow set. Mostly matte shade, with a smidgen of shimmer so little it still looks matte. I find the application smooth and extremely blendable. Also I think it works well on my skin tone considering how cool toned it is. I am still learning about skin tone and what works for what. I agree with Seattlemama on her review of it, so I don't want to quote her word for word. It is great for subtle day time use.

Tokyo has so many reviews there really isn't much more to add other than the plum shade from Brousse is great complement to this duo when added the outer corners of eyes. It would likely work well as a crease color also, but I really like the subtlety of Tokyo without crease definition. Lovely duo!

I absolutely love this duo. I usuall wear neutrals or purples but sometimes neutrals can wash me out or look dull on me. This does not it draws attention to my eyes without loud colors and is understated tjhis goes so well with all my cool toned MU products. I can just throw this on and mascara and BAM look great without much effort. the staying powder is great lasting ALL day with primer but one time I forgot to use primer and applied it on its own. It still stood strong through out most of the day. The texture is super creamy and buttery blending is a breeze. the packaging is sleek and modern. As another reviewer recalled it as elegant I absolutely agree. Will repurchase again and again.

I just got this and I LOVE it so much. I have NC15 superpale skin with strong golden undertones. I tend to wear cool eyeshadow colors because warm color all make me look orange. These are such beautiful, soft, subtle colors, perfect for daytime/office. They're so soft light that they might not show up on darker skins. I've ben using the pale shade for lid and browbone, with the grey/purple shade in the crease and outer v. The purple shade is definitely light enough for an all-over wash of color as well. There is a slight shimmer to this but the overall appearance is pretty matte. I was worried when I first opened it that the purple was too similar to Lhasa but I held it up to it and Lhasa is much greyer and less purple than the Tokyo purple. The quality of the formula is the usual Nars quality - no fallout and an elegant feel, with scarce microglitter. The usual sturdy, sleek, sophisticated Nars black packaging. Highly recommend this duo if you like soft, cool-toned eyeshadows and your skin is light.
