This is the new eyeshadow duo that just came out from NARS. I know they previously came out a single color, but I wasn't too crazy about it. Now they have a duo that seems I can do a great smokey eye with :) I also got the lipgloss, I was going to do a look that using that gloss, too. But since that was a really intense red, it would look too much for a smokey eye. So I decided to show that one later.
NARS 413 BLKR EYESHADOW DUO - $34 - Shimmering amethyst / black with red pearl
I love the color combination. It is classic but also has a little bit modern twist. The lighter color is really soft and creamy. The darker color is really dry. When I swatch the darker color, I was kinda disappointed because the texture is just so hard. Plus the swathes doesn't turnout that great compare to the light color. The weird thing is, when I tried to put the color on my eyes, the texture turned out really creamy and really easy to blend. The sad part is, even this color doesn't have any fallout, the red shimmer doesn't show up at all. It just looks like a plain shimmery black color.
