I was recently lucky enough to get the chance to try out some of the new NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows, when you first look at the eyeshadows they look very metallic and you would think that would be how they apply, maybe a little too much? Well i was surprised! These eyeshadows have a really beautiful almost satin finish when applied onto the lids, I will say that the darker ones more so than the lighter shades as the lighter ones do tend to have more of a metallic effect.
when swiping my brush into the miniature shadows i wasn’t sure how the pigmentation would transfer onto my lids, but again, i was surprised, rather impressed as i have never seen anything like it! The pigmentation of these shadows were of such a lovely consistency, very smooth and creamy, pigmented but not at all crumbly or chalky. just buttery.
you can apply these with either your fingers, a brush, a big fluffy blending brush or wet. When applied wet, the pigmentation is even more vivd. Could that be possible right? Well try it for yourself and see! I love these eyeshadows. I have the shades Subra and Dione. Subra is more of a rustic plum shade, Perfectly described as a ‘black orchid’ great for Autumn/Winter. This is my favourite shadow, its the most pigmented and just complements my eye colour! Dione is one I’ve heard a lot of bloggers talk about recently, its a really pretty champagne beige shade with underlying taupe elements.
I do find with these, that if you’re planning to wear them both day and through to night, use a primer and maybe a slight touch up would be needed but other than that, i can’t say anything bad about these little beauties.
If you haven’t given these a swatch yet, i recommend you do (or don’t) as you may just fall in love with them! These eyeshadows currently retail for £21 UK.
If you haven’t checked out my Youtube channel yet, I will be doing a makeup tutorial using these and a few other new goodies too. So make sure your SUBSCRIBED!
