A couple of days ago I popped into Space NK to pick up another product and found myself being drawn to this bad boy… Isn’t it beautiful?! I own a ton of Nars products but there is a gap in the collection which needed to be filled by a new eye shadow. Initially I wanted another single eye shadow, but unfortunately they were sold out of the shade I had my eye on, so I continued to have a little muse and came across All About Eve, t’was love at first sight…
I’m not at all keen on bright, in your face eye shadow colours, so I steer well clear of them, however I’m a sucker for a pretty, neutral and slightly subtle shade which will just enhance my eye area and make my lids look a little more exciting, so this duo was purrrfectt! It’s simplistic, and subtle, yet noticeable and beautiful it’s the perfect pair to create a brown toned, slightly shimmery smokey eye.
The colour on the left, is a very subtle gold, with a hint of shimmer, after testing it out I’ve noticed that if you use only a little and dust it lightly over the lid, the colour is soft and the shimmer is almost unnoticeable, however, it’s easily build-able and if you apply more you start to see the shimmer when the light catches the lid. The second colour is quite hard to explain, it’s a subtle brown toned, pinky skin colour, which I use in the corner of the eye to highlight and brighten and also along the very edge of the waterline to complete the look.
They’re both absolutely stunning colours which could be worn day or night and I can definitely say I will get a load of use out of this duo!
