NARS Delphes Eyeshadow Trio ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a trio of “sparkling sheer peach, matte dove grey, and frosted sage.” It is a limited edition piece from the fall collection, which is slated to hit retailers in August but currently available online at NARS.
NARS Outremer Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright true blue,” but it leans a little indigo–there is a touch of purple there. It’s not quite a true blue. It has a matte finish, and it definitely qualifies as an intense shade of blue. MAC Cobalt is a touch more indigo (and it has even more texture issues), while MAC Atlantic Blue is a touch bluer. Inglot #388 is very similar but has a smoother, silkier texture. Make Up For Ever #159 is bluer.
NARS Grand Palais Eyeshadow Duo ($33.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “silver taupe” and “dusty rose.” The left side of the duo is a smoky taupe with a hint of brown, touch of gray, and frosted finish. The right side of the duo is a muted mulberry. It’s deeper than pink–almost like a really dusty rosy red.
Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a lightened antique gold. I love the lightness of the color–a lot of antique golds tend to be murkier, almost green, but this still retains some of the sheen and brightness of gold while still having that antique appearance. Urban Decay Rush is much, much darker and browner, while Inglot #404 is much too gold. It seems like it would compare to long-ago limited edition shades like MAC Rye and Summer Neutral, but this still seems warmer, more golden.
Bobbi Brown Sand Tortoise Shell Eye Palette ($60.00 for 0.32 oz.) contains eight eyeshadows: Ivory (creamy white), Hot Stone (medium brown), Terracotta (warm golden nude), Desert Sand (golden beige), Antique Rose (warm pink nude), Black Chocolate (black brown), Sandy Rose (brown bronze), and Gold Bar (pale gold).
