Nars Alhambra Eye Shadow DuoApril 14, 2013
I recently treated myself to my first ever Nars eye shadow duo and I'm in love. I chose the Alhambra palette which consists of two pale neutral shades, both with quite a shimmery finish, though not too glittery. The shadows go perfectly together, I've been sweeping the pink/champagne toned shadow across my entire lid then adding some of the more golden shade to the outer corner and blending it in. Together they brighten your eyes yet are subtle enough for everyday wear.
The consistency of these shadows is amazing. They have a gorgeous buttery texture and are highly pigmented. I've also noticed that with a bit of primer underneath, they hardly crease at all throughout the day.
The packaging is also lovely and has a decent sized mirror inside, though like all Nars packaging, it does have a tendency to get dirty quickly.
The Nars eye shadow duos retail for £25 making them an undeniably expensive purchase, though if you are looking for a bit of an indulgence, the quality of these shadows definitely lives up to the high price tag.
