Is $55 for two eyeshadows worth it?
What’s it all about?
If you don’t like carrying a huge eyeshadow palette around, then this NARS product is for you. With two eyeshadows, you can create a multitude of looks perfect for day and night, and it’s compact enough for you to easily take with you while travelling.
The good bits
Having used many different eyeshadows in my life, I have to say that this is the best in all forms. The consistency and formulation makes these eyeshadows blend like butter, and are so pigmented that you only need to use a tiny amount. The NARS Surabaya eyeshadow duo have two warm toned, brown eyeshadows which will complement any skin tone and is universally flattering. You can use the lighter shade for a daytime appropriate look, and if you need to transition into the night, then use the darker shade on the crease of your eye to smoke it out.
You will also find that these eyeshadows have very minimal fall out, which is a God send if you’re using dark shades on your eyes.
The bad bits
Speaking of these eyeshadows being pigmented, it is very easy to look like a raccoon when applying these. When I mean you need the tiniest amount, you really do need the tiniest amount. If you’re a beginner who is just getting into eyeshadows, then maybe skip this for something a little more user friendly. Also, the price. $55 for two eyeshadows may seem crazy for some, but if you want great quality eyeshadows then you really can’t beat NARS.
