You may have seen on my Instagram that NARS have brought out a new eyeshadow range and it certainly blown my mind. I'm all for a bit of glitter and shimmer in an eyeshadow so these are hitting right the spot and more.
The Dual Intensity Eyeshadows can be applied both wet and dry which achieve different intensities. When applied dry they are a sheer wash of colour, whereas when they are applied wet they are a very intense metallic. I was a little unsure at first as I was never too keen on the metallic look, however once a make up artist had applied them onto me, I was converted. Since then I have been using them in my own way. My favourite is Dione* which is a champagne shade but turns quite beige when on the lid, which I apply wet by spraying my brush with a little face spray before putting the brush into the shadow. Just a simple wash of colour all over the lid is enough for myself, before applying a little matte brown through the crease to add more definition. I wore it a day festival a few weeks back and it looked just like a shimmery slightly smokey eye with lashings of mascara.
There is shade for everyone, my favourite are the gold silver shades and there are some which I may never use such as a black shade. If you're in London in the near future, NARS are having a pop up studio in Space NK, Broadwick Street where you're able to view the eyeshadows as they are exclusive to Space NK for July.
