I ordered this NARS eyeshadow duo in Rajasthan when the fall collection debuted a couple of months ago. It was sold out everywhere, including the NARS website so I ordered it from Neiman Marcus even though it was on back order. I had no idea it would take so long to arrive in my hands. The wait was most definitely worth it. The colors are beautiful. The peacock blue shade in particular is rather unique, with flecks of teal, navy, and even gold. This will make for a gorgeous smoky eye, and I forsee it really bringing out the gold tones in my brown eyes. The lighter tawny shade in the duo will make a perfect all-over lid color, a great option for work. The formula and pigmentation is smooth and buttery.








It was difficult capturing the beauty of the blue color with my camera. I moved by the window to see if the sun would help. Not quite, but I think you get the picture.


I highly recommend this duo if you are tired of the usual charcoals for smokey eyes. Also, I will reiterate that this looks amazing on brown eyed girls. Rajasthan was a splurge, but I know it will last me forever.
