You know you have a makeup problem when you actually shriek in excitement when you see a display of new eyeshadows from a brand you love. Sadly, this actually happened to me in the middle of a crowded Sephora, but the best part is, since I was amongst my other makeup-loving people there, no one even batted a (fake) eyelash. Some people even oohed and aahed with me! It was a great moment in makeup history. And now that I’ve tried NARS’ new Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows, I’m happy to report that all our excitement was worth it.
The new shadows come in twelve shades and can be used dry or wet (for deeper color), so it’s almost like getting two shades in one. (Which is nice, because at $29 each, they’re definitely a little bit of a splurge). My favorites shades are Desdemona (a rich shimmering burgundy), Lysithea (a shark grey) and Giove (a dark navy), but honestly, I could’ve happily scooped them all up (you know, if someone else was paying…) The shadows themselves lasted all day on me and blended like a dream – definitely splurge-worthy if you’re looking to add a few new shades to your fall wardrobe. Thanks, NARS!
