You could not believe how excited we were to be told that we would be receiving the NARS latest Dual-Intensity eyeshadows in our mailbox! Well, that day had arrived previously and we were pleasantly surprised that the beautiful friends at NARS Malaysia also included, in the package their new Wet/Dry Eyeshadow brush! Thanks NARS Malaysia *_^
We are sure most of you know of this brand that has such cult followings. Who doesn't love a NARS makeup, right? The two shades we have are CALLISTO and SUBRA. This latest Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow comes in a sleek black casing with magnetic opening/closing. It snaps opens and closes very nicely. It also houses a mirror and the eyeshadow is designed with clean layers of lines which we absolutely love!
Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Callisto is a somewhat nude pink shade. It is described as "Icy Pink Silver". Love the shade and it goes on well on my eyelids. I used it to also highlight the corner of my eyes and the brow bone to make my eyes pop a little, which works really well due to its frosty effect. It has a slightly cool undertone with a metallic finish.
Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Subra is described as "Dark Orchid" and looks like a dark burgundy purple in the pan, but interestingly, once I applied, it looks more like a really dark chocolate colour on my skin tone, instead of purplish. I guess the warm undertone brings out the brown tones more than the burgundy. It has less shimmer than the Callisto, but rather a more pearly finish.
We find this #49 eyeshadow brush really soft and the slightly longer length of it does hold on well for us. Since we are not that great with doing a smokey eye makeup (which we feel this range is well suited for), we shall show you the mood board instead that we how envision it would turn out if you try out these NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows yourself. Here for more of the collection and other shades.
We believe under the skillful hands of makeup enthusiasts, one can achieve great looks with this latest collection as they are very versatile, you can wear it dry or wet, apply it with a dampened Wet/Dry Eyeshadow brush! They both have a luxuriously smooth transformative texture and this new collection comes in 12 ready-to-wear shades range from romantic playful ones to dramatic sophistication to suits every occasion.
Oh, we shall be really looking forward to NARS 20th anniversary celebration party coming right up soon! Till our event, here's a sneak peek at all the beautiful years that NARS has coloured our lives *_^ Yes, we do agree with FranÇois Nars himself, "Makeup Is A Very Seductive Accessory!" Well said indeed.
Have a luminously beautiful week ahead, lovelies and stay happy, always.
