NARS Andromeda Dual Intensity Eyeshadow
NARS Andromeda Dual Intensity Eyeshadow

Here are the next four shades I tested of NARS’ new eyeshadow formula, which launches on July 1st. Make sure to check out part one for the first four shades I reviewed as well as a general overview of the formula.

NARS Andromeda Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “alabaster.” It’s a warm ivory with a golden frosted shimmer-sheen. It’s more of a light beige than white. Applied dry, it had semi-sheer color payoff and actually looked more muted compared to the wet application, which was more pigmented and lighter. It wore well for six and a half hours when applied dry, seven and a half hours when applied wet. Too Faced All American Girl (P, $16.00) is more metallic. Maybelline Pure Nude (80) (LE, $6.99) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #3 (P) is similar. Chanel Quadrille #2 (LE) is warmer. bareMinerals Celebrate (LE) is more beige. MAC Phresh Out #1 (LE) is similar. bareMinerals Mixologist (P) is less golden. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NARS Callisto Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “icy pink silver.” It’s a medium-dark taupe with very subtle cool undertones and a metallic finish. It looks warmer against my skin tone, but in the pan, it looks more cool-toned, so it may lean one way or the other depending on your undertones. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer and lasted for seven hours. Applied with a dampened brush, it was mostly opaque and wore well for eight hours. Maybelline Nude Compliment (90) (LE, $6.99) is browner. Dior Golden Snow #4 (LE) is similar. MAC Phresh Out #4 (LE) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #1 (P) is darker. Urban Decay Verve (LE, $18.00) is lighter, warmer. NARS Lhasa (P, $24.00) is darker, less metallic. Giorgio Armani Shimmer Greige (LE) is less metallic, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NARS Dione Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic champagne beige.” It’s a medium, champagne bronze with a metallic finish. Applied dry, it had mostly opaque payoff, but it just looked less intense compared to the wet application, which had a darker coloring overall. It lasted well for seven hours dry, eight hours wet. Giorgio Armani #09 (P, $32.00) is darker. Kat Von D Delaney (P) is cooler-toned. Kat Von D Melancholia (P) is cooler-toned. theBalm #19 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery. Clarins Forest #4 (LE) is darker, warmer, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NARS Himalia Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering topaz.” It’s a medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It’s really just a slightly darker, warmer, browner version of Dione. When applied dry, it had semi-sheer color payoff, and when it was applied with a dampened brush, it was mostly opaque. It wore well for six and a half hours dry, eight hours wet. Giorgio Armani #09 (P, $32.00) is darker. MAC Crushed Clove (P, $15.00) is lighter, warmer. Tarina Tarantino Delightful #2 (P) is darker. bareMinerals Hot Commodity (LE) is warmer. Clarins Forest #4 (LE) is less shimmery. Sleek MakeUP Lust in LA (LE, $9.99) is darker.
