Every time I try a nars shadow I am always underwhelmed. Maybe my expectations need to come down....hahahaha... The matte color is more of a gray shade which I kind of like but the brighter purple doesn't work for me..

I adore the Nars duos. I have around 5 or 6 of them. There is a certain playfulness to them in this day and age of massive palettes: the fun pairings, some totally wacky and unexpected, but you can still see how they work together. Like Bret and Jemaine. Tango and Cash. Paris and Kim. They are little eyeshadow friendships.

I picked up Violetta at a local boutique for $10. You read that …

I only review the left sight of this duo which is a matte light purple with some greyness. I actually use it from Nars 9951 palette. I love this color. I have neutral towards warm light white skin with yellow undertone. And I have brown eyes. With the left side of Violetta on my eyelids, my eyes look bright. And my whole face looks neat and subtle. I have Tokyo duo too. I definitely …Read more

I probably would buy this product again if I ever ran out of it. I have hazel eyes and purple just works for me. The brighter shade has a very subtle shimmer and if worn on the mobile lid, over my iris, makes my eyes pop. But the other shade, which is a creamy, soft mat lilac-taupe, is a great contour shade for me. I love it with black mascara and YSL Indian Orange lipstick for an evening look.

This is my 3rd NARS duo ( I have Alhambra & Underworld). I really wanted to wear purple eyeshadow but most other purple eye shadows are way to bright and not subtle enough for me. The violet colors in this duo are very soft and muted, so if you use a light hand you could wear it to work or at school without looking like the Evil Queen from Snow White. :)

The matte shade applies …

Unique shades, very pigmented. The price is OK £23.50 for 4g. Not bad considering the smart container with a large mirror and how fab these colours are.
Lilacs and violets are tricky colours. When used correctly they make you look fresh and young... but it's easy to go too far and look either goth or like an 80's pub landlady. This duo is impossible to go wrong with though- the …

This duo is more of a "quiet" purple, so I can understand the negative reviews here that say people were looking for more vibrant, louder shades. For me, though, that's what sold me; the purples are understated and elegant but STILL clearly purple, giving me a chance to play with color in a daytime school/work look without feeling overly done or too dramatic.

I …

This is a really pretty subtle look that is great for day. If you want a more intense sparkly violet color try mac violet pigment. I like this duo for a pretty understated look.

I have always wanted to get the Tokyo duo. But when I swatched this in person, Violetta is so much more interesting than Tokyo. The matte smokey lavender shade on the left is almost exactly like the darker shade in Tokyo, except sans shimmers. Nars's mattes are always so silky and doesn't look like powder on the skin. And this is no different. I like using this shade as an all over wash …Read more
