nars eyeshadow duo in st-paul-de-vence


NARS Eyeshadow Duo in St-Paul-de-Vence ($35) shows that barely-there does not mean boring. It was  limited edition and part of the Spring 2015 Color collection, however it still appears to be available online. This is a surprisingly unique eyeshadow duo with a strong peachy tone, the overall effect is very soft and warm. The left shade is a shimmery frosty apricot, and the right side has a matte/satin soft warm brown. I like to use it over a flesh toned base like UDPP in Eden, it makes it easier to build the color since they are on the sheer side. I've also layered these over a brown cream shadow to deepen the color.

As I mentioned in my TMSLA haul, I've also purchased the coordinating single in Valhalla. Since the colors are all so soft, it makes for a very soft and easy work or weekend look. I like to use Valhalla on the inner lid and corner, the shimmery left side of St-Paul-de-Vence on the outer corner and slightly into the crease, and finally the matte right side to blend out the crease and under the eye. I've even applied the shimmery shades with my fingers to help build them up. Some black eyeliner and mascara and done!
