This thing is so bizarre. In the pan it looks like a medium lavendar/purple with a ton of gold shimmer and looks gorgeous. Swatched, looks amazing too. On the eyes, it looks like a darker muddy greyple. looks absolutely awful. for some reason the gold shimmer does not translate AT ALL on the eyelid. i tried it wet and it still did not translate - only deepended it to a darker …Read more

Should have looked up reviews before buying this... It's rather hard to work with. I bought it because it looked true-enough-to-pan on my much fairer-skinned friend; on my skin (NARS St Moritz, Cover FX N35, to be fair my eyelids are probably a touch darker than the rest of my skin) it looks like cheap muddy dust. That disappointed me, for the price, this is simply ridiculous.

I …

Pro: I got it on sale with free shipping from the UK

Con: The difference between how it looks on a hand swatch to how it looks when you put it on your eyes

First of all, the price. I get really irate at cosmetic companies and associated flunkies getting their pound of flesh. If I were to buy this from the Nars site in the US, it is $24.00. Except I am not able to, as I …

I like this eyeshadow. I rarely wear it however. I fell in love with it in Sephora and bought it without realizing how hard it is to wear. It looks good on it's own as a bold lid color and blended a little into the crease (although blending it is not very easy, and if I over blend it, it turns into a bit of a muddy black-eye color). It is hard to work with, which is why I only wear it on its …Read more

It's a nice color, but extremely hard to work with. I found it can only look good on me (NC15) when layering over a dark color base or on my bottom lash line. This kind of layering doesn't work for me about 98% of the time and for something I can only use on my bottom lash line, it's really expensive. However, it's the best lower lash line color I ever have, so I gave it a 4.

I love NARS and I craved this color after seeing it at Sephora. I made a second trip back to Sephora just to purchase it. It looked yummy in the display, but this is just too difficult to work with. It looks a beautiful lavender with gold shimmer in the pot, but when applied on my DDD skin it looked a muddy, ruddy, greyish mess. There is just no way to get this color to look like it does in …Read more

I love NARS products, but I find this particular eyeshadow to be very difficult to work with. You MUST use an eye primer underneath this, but not just any one. I tried both Tarte and UD before trying the NARS primer, and the NARS was the only one that would actually hold this and keep it fairly true to swatch color. During application, sweeping it on the lid will quickly create that muddy …Read more

So disappointed by this! Swatched and in the container it is a beautiful purple with gold shimmer. The SA told me that it must be patted on gently with a med stiff brush over a primer to get the golden effect. I have done this, and yet you still cannot see the gold in it, it is just a muddy gray-purple color. Not worth the price.

I totally agree with the other reviews on this product, it is hard to work with. You have to use an eye primer underneath it, I use a MAC paint pot under mine, it is hideous to blend, and the fallout is unreal!! I have not tried to use it alone as yet but I think it may be better applied on its own and patted on rather than swept on, I used it with another colour and used this in the corner and …Read more

Strada is powerfully sophisticated and will make you so as well. It is not for the novice. It is a strongly artful colour which should be appreciated like a diamond solitare and not applied as an element in a trio of traditional shadow application. It is a flaming accent that, I can only speak for blue eyes, will make your eyes look hypnotic. I apply it with a wet "q-tip" brush from …Read more
