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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...
