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.”
