Classic Black & White Duo
Pandora is a matte deep black combined with a frosty white shimmer. Together, their polar opposite textures and colors create drama, intensity, and a statement on the eyes. I use this two different ways.
1) Apply the shimmery white all over lids and browbone. Then, use the matte deep black as eyeliner (with a damp eyeliner brush like MAC 266), draw a thin line on the upper lash line and lightly flick out to create a mod inspired wing.
2) Apply a neutral matte base (like MAC Bisque) all over the lids to provide a nice base for eyeshadow to stick to (use Urban Decay Primer Potion if you like that product instead). With a densely packed eyeshadow brush (like the MAC 239), pack on the matte black shade of pandora ONTO the lid and a bit lighter on the crease. Then, take the MAC 217 brush and begin smoking the black up and re-applying the black to get your desired smokey intensity. Pat the white shimmery shadow intensely on the inner corners and browbone for a shimmery sheen. Top off with mascara, a peachy nude blush and blush pink gloss :) (See attached photo for eye look)
Very Pigmented, Creamy, Beautiful Coverage and No Fall Out
I love NARS, yes there I said it I love, love, love NARS! All the products are such high quality, so highly pigmented and go on beautifully and wear all day. Yes I said all day, and my average day is 12-14 hours. From morn to night NARS stays with me. I Have 2 Duo Eye-shadows: Isolde and Mediteranee and both are gorgeous. They are bold colors and can be worn that way, but also can play them down a bit for an everyday look. Every time I wear them I get asked all day long, what are you wearing??? Lol
so velvety and soft, high pigmentation
Super pigmented and this duo in Kalahari is a soft gold and brown colour, amazing for day time and creating a night time look too, I use an eye primer under these just to make them last longer and make the colours really pop, but over all these duo's are the best!!! I would collect them all if I could.
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 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.
