Nars Mandchourie Eyeshadow Duo

Nars Mandchourie Eye Shadow Duo is a release from the Nars Holiday collection and whilst it may look nice enough, I’m not sure I’d have bought it if it wasn’t for  it being a co-buy on www.buyapowa.com, Buyapower is a great site that offers products (at the moment mostly cosmetic), the more people that purchase an item, the lower the price, meaning that this duo cost me a fantastic £15 instead of the usual £23.50. This isn’t a sponsored post or anything but I do highly recommend you keep tabs on that site if you want cosmetic bargains!

So back to the duo in question. A lovely navy blue, matte and what appears to be a grey with metallic gold through it.

Actually the goldy-grey on the left has a touch of blue to it as well.

I found the swatches a bit disappointing if I’m honest, they looked a bit wishy-washy and were decidedly…meh… have a look, but read on!

The swatches are nice, but not amazing…so that lulled me into a terrible false sense of security when it came to putting these on my eyes. The swatches are not at all representative of how these appeared on my eyelids. I loaded my brush and dabbed it on only to find that they were incredibly pigmented and indeed gorgeous! I had to do some serious blending out to undo the damage I’d done with my first brush strokes.  Loving my new eyeshadow duo. Definitely not for the faint hearted but a definite hit for this smokey eye lover.

There’s not really much more I can say about this, other than I love it, so I leave you with the usual photo’s of me looking ridiculous with my eyes closed 🙂 Oh and you can see a tiny bit of my new hair colour and style… I should do a post on that at some point I think!

This duo was bought with my own money.
