NARS Eyeshadows Du Jour 1.7.11

So I got these babies about 2 months ago for $10 each on Sephora, what a great deal. If you know me, I am not a big color person. I shriek in horror from a "sunset eye look" but these colors while being outside of my normal eyeshadow box are not bright nor very "colorful"

I was happily surprised when I received these and saw the burnished orange and a deep cranberry, bordering on a deep brown. The only one that I will not wear all that often is the lime green. However, the lime is a shimmery sheer lime which could be okay as a simple wash on the lid in summer. I am actually excited to try that but only when I have a tan.

As far as formula's go, these are the stellar NARS formula that I love. Soft, buttery and a dream to blend. NARS eye shadows can be a huge hit or a huge miss. I lucked out with these.




Did anyone else nab these?

  1. The colours arent really my style, but i own some Nars shadows and the pigmentation is just sublime.

  2. Oh, how I wish we had a sephora in the UK! although our Selfridges and Space NK have NARS, I did not stumble across these for around that much. Which is a bummer! The colours look fab though. Not something I would wear on a daily basis, but maybe in the weekend or if I was going out.

  3. I saw these a while back but thought th orang rd looked odd- greens arent really my colouring. Having lookd at the swatches I could probably war the orange cranberry. I must swatch things more, and not look at the pan colour.

    Good buy!
