  1. NARS Kauai Eyeshadow Duo

Round-up: NARS x Christopher Kane Overview & Thoughts

NARS x Christopher Kane Collection launches online on April 15th and consists of ten, limited edition products. I wish I could say I had a favorite, but I was unimpressed by the collection and its products. If you pressed me to pick “favorites,” then I would tell you the eyeshadows, as at least they’re workable over a tacky base and extra effort and are more unique compared to the other shades in the launch. For me, this collection was stunning grouped together in their pans and tubes, but in practice, they were under-performing.
