NARS Duo Eye Shadow In Rated R - Review + Swatches

Hey my makeup geeks!

NARS Duo Eye Shadow In Rated R

Today I'm here with another review post which is on NARS Duo Eye Shadow In Rated R. This product has been on my wishlist for so long and finally I've this in my make up stash now. Actually this is my first NARS product so far. I'd also posted it on my Facebook fan page couple of weeks ago as a upcoming review but sadly I wasn't able to review this as I was busy in reviewing other products but today I planned to review it first and then will do other stuff. So let's scroll down to find what product says and my thoughts about it.

NARS Duo Eye Shadow In Rated R

Worn alone or together, all Duo Eye shadow shades feature micro-fine powders that are highly pigmented, long wearing and crease resistant. Color glides on smoothly, evenly and blends effortlessly. The effects can be subtle or smoldering -- the options are endless.

My Thoughts:
Starting with the packaging it comes in the NARS standard rubberized black compact which I quite like but which seems to drive some people crazy as the compact tends to get dirty very quickly cause of its black color but a quick wipe with a makeup remover towelette can make it as good as new. NARS Duo Eye Shadow In Rated R is described as a 'shimmering chartreuse' and 'electric cobalt blue. The chartreuse is light-medium mix of yellow and green with a yellowy gold shimmer. The color payoff is highly good, texture is soft and blend-able. The electric cobalt blue is a blend or mixture of blue and purple with the hint of icy blue shimmer. Both colors are highly pigmented and blend able. You don't have to put your effort while blending them. I'm pretty impressed by the texture. There is no need of primer before applying them on your lids but if you want this eye shadow to last more than 6 hours then primer is MUST. The color don't fade off and don't crease for 5-6 hours with out primer. Both colors are good for these summers and they are perfect for the people who love bright and vivid colors just like me. Rated R is the hottest trend this summers cause from this you can attain this summer trend which is Blues and Greens Eye Make up. Overall, I'm highly impressed by this product and I recommend you all to give a TRY to this. 

P.S: You might have noticed that there is a small groove in 'shimmering chartreuse', hehe this is because my adorable 2 year old niece has made this mistakenly by her small nails by saying what is this? Lol she loves to explore things as she is highly inspired from Dora the explorer.
