NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Kuala Lumpur

NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Kuala Lumpur £25.00

NARS has got to be one of my favourite make-up brands...I'm particularly fond of their eyeshadow duos, perfect little handbag friendly palettes that you can take on the go or even on holiday!

I have tried a couple of the duos but have stuck to the normal safe neutral shades. After spotting this beaut in a Space NK store a while ago, I decided to purchase because it was something very different to what I normally wear.

Kuala Lumpur is a lovely little duo containing a peachy toned nude with a gorgeous shimmer to it, the other shade is a burgundy/medium plum with a much more subtle shimmer (so you don't get glitter overload)!

If you're looking for something really bold, then I wouldn't say this shade is for you - it appears more bolder in the pan than on the eyelid. However, this can be build-able or you could apply the products wet if you prefer a bolder finish. Another option would be to use a metallic cream shadow underneath as a base/primer.

 I don't wear a lot of purple so this is the perfect shade to ease me into trying something different than the average neutral. I find I have to layer up the peachy colour a bit as this does apply quite likely, I don't use too much of the burgundy shade but blend it over a little further across the lid instead.

With a good primer (I personally use Urban Decay Primer Potion) this will last a full day on my lids without needing any major touch ups. Both shades are easy to apply and there isn't too much fallout either. 

Unfortunately you can't get this particular duo on the NARS website but you can find this on other retailer websites (and possibly stores) such as Space NK and John Lewis.

Have you tried NARS eye products?

I'm keen to try out some more different colours so leave me your favourites below!
