NARS Euphrate Eyeshadow

NARS Euphrate Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “frosted mint steel.” It’s a cool-toned, green-tinged, light-medium gray with a frosted, silver shimmer. MAC Moss Garden is more metallic. Chanel Riviere is warmer, less gray. MAC Fresh & Mint is more frosted. Urban Decay Money is darker. It’s funny: I thought this was more unique than not, but it turns out that is not quite the case! The finish of Euphrate is smoother/less metallic in comparison to other shades, though.

NARS Tender Night Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

NARS Tender Night Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.086 oz.) is described as an “iridescent lilac.” It’s true-to-description: it’s an iridescent lilac with a shimmering frost finish. MAC Bubble Gum has more of an iridescent lilac feel (but it has more of a golden shimmer than true iridescence). If you have an iridescent lilac eyeshadow, you could pat it over your lips and get a similar effect.

NARS Madness Nail Polish

NARS Madness Nail Polish ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “electric orange.” It’s a brightened, medium orange with a jelly finish–it has a squishy, slightly translucent quality to the way it looks and applies that is very true to the jelly finish. NARS TV Party is darker and a true cream. Illamasqua Gamma is a bit brighter and also a true cream.

NARS Barrow Street Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner

NARS Barrow Street Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “seafoam green.” It’s a cool-toned, seafoam green with a matte finish. I don’t have too many mint/aqua eyeliners, but NARS Parrot Cay (which I always loved the look of but the wear left a lot to be desired) and Korres #12 are both similar–slightly lighter I would say.
