NARS Eyeshadow Duos in Kauai, Kalahari and China Seas
I’ve swatched my NARS Eyeshadow Duo collection before, but since I picked three more up while in the US, I thought I’d review the new ones too. I bought these from Sephora from $35, but Australians can purchase them from Mecca Cosmetica for $46.
In typical NARS fashion, all of these duos are fantastic. While all of them are pigmented, I found Kauai to be the most so - the other duos required just a bit more eyeshadow to look as pigmented as the shadows in Kauai. They layer well, and don’t require a primer underneath to wear well throughout the day or night. NARS eyeshadows are soft, but not buttery or as creamy as other highly regarded eyeshadows. They blend well, and hold up to some accidental rubbing (I mention this in eyeshadow reviews because I’m often guilty of it).
Overall, Kauai performs best out of these three, but they’re all lovely duos whose colours complement each other nicely. The price tag is a little steep for just two eyeshadows, but I haven’t yet regretted a NARS purchase I’ve made.
Picked up Bella Emerald from the Milani eyeshadows collection because I wanted a deep shimmery green. This color is soo beautiful and soft and easy to work with, I’m going to definitely do a fall look featuring this shadow soon.
