NYX Violetta Eyeshadow

NYX Violetta Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a gold shimmered pink-purple with a satiny sheen. The color payoff is good, so it turns out mostly opaque, but the shimmer is more sparkled on top than it is truly embedded with the color, so it does result in some fall out. It reminded me a little of MAC Half-Wild when really sheered out, though darker. Urban Decay Purple Haze is fairly similar with a matte finish and more purple in it.

NARS Dark Rite Soft Touch Shadow Pencil

NARS Dark Rite Soft Touch Shadow Pencil ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “navy blue.” It’s a dark navy blue with a shimmery finish. I feel it necessary to do a full copy-and-paste from spring’s press release regarding this product, because too often I receive comments and emails saying I’m being unduly harsh and unfair, all because NARS “meant” for this product to crease; that this is supposed to have that “creased” look.  I’m harsh, but I don’t think unduly so; this is an atrocious product, and from a high-end brand that can and does put out quality products, it’s appalling. I don’t make excuses for brands, least of all when they create products that perform this poorly.
