The warm setting sun tickled my frizzy hair as the waves lapped at my feet. The culmination of these feeling emanated from Kauai when I first cracked open the compact last week.
How can two colours conjure up memories from one of my top holidays? Look to the pan -- Gold Lame and Iridescent Smokey Orchid are akin to the sand, sun and surf.
Believe me, I could wax on poetically about NARS Kauai and Kaua'i, for that matter, for hours.
In order of importance, I bought this particular palette for:
- The colour combination - my hazel peepers really sparkle
- The name
While I do love NARS' blush and lipstick formulas, the eyeshadow is something I've really had a love/hate relationship with.. love the colours, hate the quality. Then again, a makeup artist alluded to the fact Francois reformulated his eyeshadows.
And I now believe her!
NARS Kauai's finely milled formula refuses to budge, crease, fade or fallout. Telling attributes of a high performing eyeshadow.
I have yet to try applying these wet, but it'll be the first thing I do this morning.
Can't afford a trip to Hawaii? NARS Kauai will most certainly transport you on the cheap.
The Bagful breakdown:
Total amount for NARS Kauai Eyeshadow Duo:
Value for money spent (performance and quality):
- 10 out of 10 bags — I could see myself hitting the pan very quickly. Time to buy a back-up! Scratch that! It's a permanent addition!!
Would another purchase be on the horizon?:
- NARS Matte Multiples should be launching in Australia on 1 April. Get at me, Laos.
