Tuesday evening I went down to Soho’s SpaceNK to attend NARS Duo-Eyeshadows launch event with Lily Pebbles and Anna from Vivianna Does MakeUp – love those girls, got to if they’re willing to make stupid face with me in “beauty” pictures! It took me ages to find the shop, mainly because I am really rubbish with directions and reading maps….Anyhow, at arrival we were offered champagne, elderflower and sparkling water and cute pastel meringues whilst waiting to go to the other room and get to see the new products.
To be honest, I was never massively in to NARS, as to me they always seemed to have the baldest of shades when eyeshadows are concerned which are really not my thing. If you are like me, don’t be be fooled, this launch is a good ‘un. Available in 13 wearable shades, the Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow features a luxuriously smooth transformative texture. Used dry it gives a sheer buildable colour, but if you apply it with a wet brush, the not-to over the top yet Va Va Voom high shine finishes is guaranteed.
I tried the Dione shade, a bronze colour, on a wet brush all over the lids and Desdemona, a cranberry colour, applied dry in the crease. The result was surprisingly natural yet able to give a oomph to the eyes…Gotta love it, gotta have it! You can find it exclusively to SpaceNK online and in stores for £21. *cough* *cough* I might have picked Dione up!
