NARS Cordura Duo Eyeshadow

UPDATE (08.08.2012 8:08am): I knew I was missing something in this post…SWATCH PHOTO!!! Yes, now this post is complete. Scroll down for the swatch photo 🙂


If you know me, you know that these are my kind of colors. So naturally I had to have it. And I love it.



What’s not to love? Colors are easy to play up or play down. Texture is spot on. I can easily pick up pigment with easy blend ability. Both shades are highly pigmented. I am in love 🙂 You would be too. I have to let you know that I’m very poor at naming colors so bear with me. The lighter coppery-gold shade works beautifully as a warm wash of color. You can wear it alone with lots of mascara for that understated glow-y eye look or smudge the darker khaki-brown-ish color on the lash line to create a warm smokey eye.


According to NARS…

Modern, unique, sometimes unexpected color combinations of eyeshadow shades. Worn alone or together, all Duo Eyeshadow shades feature micro-fine powders that are highly pigminted, longwearing and crease resistant. Color glides on smoothly, evenly and blends effortlessly. The effects can be subtle or smoldering — the options are endless.
