NARS Cressida Dual Intensity Eyeshadow

NARS Cressida Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering midnight blue.” It’s a bright, medium-dark blue with a frosted finish. It is more muted and semi-opaque when applied dry, and it wore for seven and a half hours on me. When I applied it damp, the color was fully opaque and brighter, while longevity came in at eight and a half hours. The texture was a little drier and harder to blend out dry, and it was somewhat easier when applied damp, but it tended to dry unevenly. Sephora Aja (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

NARS Kari Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “soft rose pink.” It’s a muted, medium rosy pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen. The powder had a soft, smooth consistency to the touch, and it was less dry compared to other shades in the range (I think it’s the lack of shimmer, relative to the other shades). It applied with lighter, semi-sheer coverage that wore for seven hours used dry, and it was fully opaque and wore for eight hours when applied damp. Lancome Exhibition (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Lilacked (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Dress Me Up (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

NARS Tarvos Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “icy mint.” It’s a subtly cool-toned, mint green with a frosted, slightly metallic finish. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer and appeared warmer-tone, while applied damp yielded nearly opaque coverage and a more metallic and cooler-toned sheen. The texture was soft, blendable, and smooth, though a little dry to the touch. It wore well for eight hours when applied damp but only six and a half hours when applied dry.
