NARS Eyeshadow Haul

Recently I hit the dreaded 2-9! It will be the last year of my twenties and the thought that it is my last year makes me want to cry.  To celebrate and to cheer myself up I thought I’d splash out in Space NK and pick up some NARS.  It has been such a long time since I had a spurge in Space NK/NARS and I thought it was well and truly deserved.

So here's what I treated myself to...
Top to bottom: Isolde and Kalahari

I've my little eye on Isolde for quite some time.  Gold and bronze shades are my favourite as they can make you look so bright and alive in the eyes!  I always find they catch the light really well.  They also can be easily worn in the day time quite simply but vamped up to create a smoldering evening look.


The gold and bronze tones of Isolde are so intense, they were exactly what I have been searching for a quite a while.  They remind me of MAC's Woodwinked and Bronze which are two of my favourite shades.  The pigmentation of the duo is breathtakingly good.  I know I sound quite dramatic describing a shadows pigment as breathtaking but I'm not going to lie.  It takes no effort at all to transfer the colour from the pan to the eye lid.

I actually wore the gold in my Christmas day look video which you can see here if you wish.


This duo is one of those everyday palettes featuring a soft gold and a warm coco brown pair.  The colours are not as intense as Isolde, but still incredibly pretty.  I will certainly get my use out of this!  I love the coco brown.

I picked up my duos at Space NK, but you can pick them up at numerous places and online.  They are a tad expensive at £24 each but they truly are gorgeous shades.  I don't think Isolde will be leaving my makeup bag very soon.

Have you ever bought NARS shadows?  Do you have any recommendations?
