Let's face it, most of us aren't in middle school anymore and trying "our favorite color" is no longer a reality. We all tend to find a color family that we love - like neutrals, violets, or grays - and rarely get out of our comfort zone.
Well, recently I ventured out and started using NARS eyeshadow duos and I'm not sure how I lived so long without them. The color combinations are endless and the longevity of this eyeshadow is surprising to someone who seems to always get the creases. One thing I like about the eyeshadows is that is incredibly easy to go from day to night - layering these looks can instantly add drama. In addition, they double as a great eyeliner. Another characteristic that I appreciate is the fact that if normally you'll have one shimmery shade and one "flat" shade. I tend to like a little shimmer all over my lid and something more flat in my crease. I have several duos and every time I am surprised with the looks I can create with just two eyeshadow shades.
NARS Duo Eyeshadow, $33
Sephora carries 36 color combinations - some that you may never buy, and some that are staple eyeshadow shades for any woman's collection. My favorites are: Bellissima, Hula Hula, Kalahari, and Portobello....then again, I tend to be a neutral girl.
So there you go - this is an investment you won't be sorry about. NARS has extremely high quality that actually works! Make-up is there only mission, so you know that they are good at it! Try out some of their other products as well - I love the blush as well!
