Between lipsticks and eyeshadows, my heart yearns the former. Imma self-confessed lippie addict remember? But once in a great while, I do find myself prancing amidst the revelry and hoopla of true blue eyeshadow connoisseurs. Will NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow quell me? Read further for the great reveal.

Retailing for $29 (0. 05 oz), NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow is available in twelve dazzling shades. I ordered Subra, described as black orchid or dark burgundy with pearl finish, and Himalia, shimmering topaz or champagne taupe-ish with metallic finish.

Named Dual Intensity, these eyeshadows can be applied dry for sheer result or wet for bam-in-your-face impact. Either way, I am more than pleased with its creaseless and budge-free wearability. Worn over NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base, my eye makeup lasted ten hours with minimal fading. Both have impeccable softness that's neither powdery nor messy during application. Stunning when dry, phenomenal when wet. That's how I can accurately describe the overall quality of these two eyeshadows. Yes, convincing enough that I ordered few more shades to satisfy my insatiable eyeshadow craving!




For my FOTD below, I used Himalia for my lids and Subra on crease, outer corner, and lower lash line (both applied dry).

  7. They sound fabulous, and the shades look stunning on you (as usual!). I have never used eye shadow wet except for when I've used it as eyeliner. It would be fun to get to try them that way. I love the shades in this new collection. Definitely something worth saving up for!

  11. The pigmentation of them wet is beautiful but the price tag is a bit high for a single shadow

  12. I have heard only good things about these but they definitely make my wallet cry! It seems like if I buy one of something I desperately think I need at least 3...then it just gets worse from there...
