NARS Summer 2011:  Exotic Dance Eyeshadow Duo

NARS Exotic Dance Eyeshadow Duo ($33.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “metallic white silver sheen and metallic gold.” It’s a duo of a bright snow white with a metallic sheen that’s not quite 100% opaque and a darkened, metallic bronzed gold, which applies smoothly and has nice color payoff. It’s kind of like a cooler-toned version of Key Largo. The white seems similar in color to the white from the Cleo duo, but the one in Exotic Dance has a more metallic finish.

The texture of the darker shade is lovely–very smooth, soft, and applies evenly.  The lighter white shade has a few sheerer patches when applied and needs to be patted on for more even application.  NARS’ eyeshadows are supposed to be long-wearing and crease-resistant.  When I wear them alone, I tend to get around seven to eight hours of wear before there is a faint amount of creasing, so it’s pretty good and isn’t a huge mess, but I’d recommend a primer for all-day wear (especially for those with oilier lids).   As far as NARS eyeshadows go, their duos are your best bang for your buck. Most individual eyeshadows from high-end brands are 0.05 oz. on average, while these almost equal out to three of those for $33.
