NARS Eyeshadow Duo in ‘Kuala Lumpur’ | £25.00 c/o Urban Retreat
This little duo is the newest addition to my ever expanding NARS collection – a brand I just can’t get enough of at the minute. Looking for the perfect eyeshadow to match my New Years Eve dress, I picked out the ‘Kuala Lumpur’ duo, a palette with a pink champagne shade and purple with flicks of gold glitter. Usually I lean more towards neutral tones or silvers for nights out, so this is definitely a step out of my comfort zone. I’m more about dramatic lip colours than statement eyes but wanted to try something new.
I really love the looks that you can achieve with this duo. The lighter shade is much more sheer and takes a great deal of building up. You have to bare with it until you pick up a good enough colour pay off, but once you do, it’s a lovely highlighting shade which looks beautiful popped in the inner corners of the eye. The darker one is much more dramatic and beautiful; a warm, glittery purple can either be blended in gently with the pale pink for daytime or swept all over for a more dramatic effect.
I built up the pink shade in my inner corners and then blended it along the lash line with the purple for that eye popping effect. I can’t wait to experiment with more day time looks, I think next time I will go for a neutral lip and less purple. I will definitely be wearing it with my Motel Rocks Gabby Dress on New Years, you can never have enough sparkle.
What do you think of this duo? Have you tried any NARS eyeshadows before?
