|NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow (Cassiopeia) on lids|
:: affiliate ::
Good thing I went in to swatch because I ended up liking just one shade as I found the others I initially ordered quite close to Himalia and Subra. In a nutshell, NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow can be applied either wet or dry. Cassiopeia ($29, 0.05oz 1.5 g) is holographic pink or sometimes soft lilac depending on lighting situation.
As you can see from the photos, there isn't a big difference whether you apply Cassiopeia wet or dry. But what I found to be more worth-sharing is the fact that this particular shade adheres to the eyelids better when I use my finger instead of brush. Also, the color payoff is sheer so you have to pat it on quite a few times to make it intense. In terms of longevity (applied over NARS eye primer), it held up to about five hours with creasing and fading. That's not impressive in my little-black-book-of-whatever so while it's a cute shade to own, it's a bummer especially to us ladies cursed with oily lids. Ergo, repurchase is not even an option.
