Beauty in a tick: NARS Eye Paint in Snake Eyes

NARS Snake Eyes

Gambling really isn't my thing.  I experience way too much anxiety when I play Blackjack and besides, I like seeing my hard earned money at work in my closet and my makeup bag.

Intense colours matched with endless possibilities. Line, shade or enhance your peepers with any one of the ten long-wear shades, ranging from matte to shimmer.

Side note: If you're a lover of MAC's Fluidline, then you'll definitely be a fan of NARS Eye Paints as well.

Snake Eyes is comprised of an emerald green shimmer set within a black matte base. It's certainly not your basic black liner. The gel formula is feather light, glides on and dries fast. And if you make a mistake, don't fret. I was able to erase my mistakes with makeup removing water and start again.
