NARS Mandchourie Duo

November 4, 2011
By now I’m sure it’s no surprise that I love NARS rather a lot, so when this eye shadow duo found it’s way into my hands I was so excited to try it out. I have been looking for an alternative to my usual brown or black for a smokey eye, blue tones had never crossed my mind but this really works well with my eye colour it certainly makes the whites whiter. 
Mandchourie is part of the new NARS collection, more to come soon from the new collection. The eye shadows are very creamy and rich in pigment, you don’t need much to get a good colour payoff. I have been wearing the grey blue shade on the left all over my eye lid, then smudges the dark navy shade into my lash line and into my crease. NARS products are such fabulous quality, I haven’t bought a single product and been disappointed by it. 
Recently I have been trying to push my boundaries with my make-up, every so often I get stuck in a make-up rut, I’m sure we all do. Blue and Navy like I said isn’t the sort of shades I would immediately reach for, but I have found that when I try new products/shades I seem to get more compliments – mainly from the best friend and my mum since I haven’t left the house but that’s still nice!
I have worn the shade the last two days and definitely think it’s going to be my staple eye shadow for a while, I always do this when I find a colour I love it becomes the only shade I reach for. The circle of life.
Tell me what your favorite NARS eye shadows are, singles or duos. I need to expand my collection of NARS shadows some more.

    Pretty much all my most used eyeshadows are Nars. I love Alhambra, Dogon, Isolde and all the eyeshadows in the Everlasting Love Palette. You can easily layer them up to create different looks for day and night. Plus they are great for travelling being robust and slim designs.

    Can't wait to get my hands on Mandchourie.
