NARS Euphrate Eyeshadow
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.

Euphrate had good color payoff, and it applied smoothly overall. It was a smidgen powdery when I applied all over the lid directly (no primer), but it applied more smoothly when I applied it over NARS’ eyeshadow primer. The color worked well when paired with NARS Barrow Street eyeliner (from this collection as well). Without a primer, it lasted for eight hours but was slightly faded along the edges. NARS’ eyeshadow is supposed to be “highly pigmented, long-wearing, [and] crease-resistant.”

Euphrate

B+
Euphrate works well to brighten eyes while being a cooler-toned, more interesting color than perhaps a more common beige, so it might be a nice way to switch things up.

    I love it, it’s very subtle ! Definitely purchase it.

  2. While not exactly the same, it looks very close to a discontinued NARS shade which I still have and love in my singles collection.

  3. Hi Christine, Euphrate is gorgeous! Especially when paired with Barrow St. I think I might pick this up when NARS 2013 comes out in stores!

    Oh wow, i love the look of this. Would this look okay on slightly more honey/olive toned skin?

    I love this color of shadow for my eyes

  6. I wasn’t expecting to like this, but the white tone to it makes it actually kind of brightening. It’s actually nice on, although still not my favorite shade

  7. Euphrate is very pretty – but I will still hoping for it to be a bit more mint. On the fence..
