I have pale skin and blue-grey eyes and this is seriously the perfect duo for me. The ivory shade has a really pretty muti-colored shimmer to it, and the grey isn't overly blue or purple. This duo is great for every day looks, but you can also add in black shadow and liner to go with a pale smokey eye. For me, even with my oily eyelids, the wear is superior. I've only tried a few NARS products, but this one is definitely the best.
This duo is so pretty. The green side is the perfect emerald color, and the ivory makes a nice highlighter on paler skin. The wear is great, and while the ivory shade is a little bit chalky, it doesn't really show on the skin. It isn't a cheap duo by any means, but if you want a versatile green shadow, I say it is worth it.
I picked this eye shadow duo up at Toronto IMATS 2012 and it was a good price too, nice colors, very pigmented, huge fan of NARS eye shadows! The sable colour is a nice color for all over the lid, and then blend the darker violet colour in the crease for a nice smokey eye for evening. I don't like how the packaging gets so dirty quickly, I think they could improve on that a bit, apparently they break easily too but
i haven;t experienced that yet, Hopefully I never will, I also am loving the New Andy Warhol collection too, picked up a lip gloss from it in the colour " Candy Says"
This duo is perfect. Words can not describe how much I love these eyeshadows. I was anxious at first because they are iridescent and usually that means they will go on sheer. Nars is such a fabulous company that I didn't have to worry at all! They did go on sheer, but it was a beautiful and natural sheer look. With two layers and a little blending the perfect smokey eye is so quick and easy to attain. I used the purple on my lid, then placed the blue in the outer corner and crease. VIOLA! a perfect and simple smokey eye. For extra drama I recommend using a silver or grey eyeliner along the bottom and top lash line, extend a little to give a small wing. This is a must buy for everyone!
bright, awesome colours that wear incredibly well!
i am in love with my "rated r" eyeshadow duo...i especially love the bright chartreuse shade, which i wore the other night to a glow party. i got many compliments on my makeup! i put on a couple of layers, so it's very vibrant...this is pretty easy to do. try the blurple hue on the corners of your eyes! so cool...one of my fave makeup items.
Excellent neutral duo
Excellent neutral duo, these two colors are great for every day, the colors go on and stay on without creasing. The cordura duo is definitely one of my everyday favorites. I use the lighter shade on the lid, and the darker shade smudged on the lash line and as a crease color. I would definitely repurchase and recommend.
Love, Love, Love this!
I was actually going on a sephora spree, and knew that I needed new blue and green eye shadows, so when I saw this I couldn't help but grab it! I used the next day, and got SO many compliments from teachers and students alike! The texture is so smooth and velvety, and the odors are not only beautifully pigmented but they blend so well! I would definitely recommend this to everyone! I plan on getting more soon!
