NARS Night Breed Eyeshadow

NARS Night Breed Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “black with silver glitter” and that is an apt description. It has a matte, black base with silver micro-glitter strewn through the color. The way it’s placed makes it noticeable but not shimmery or over-the-top. It’s a dark black, though not quite the most intense black, but it certainly does not venture near soft blacks. Lancome The New Black is more intense, but it also has more silver flecks, and even the base has more of a satiny look in comparison.

NARS Eyeshadows are described as “ultra pigmented, long-wearing, [and] crease-resistant” that can be applied wet or dry. I get around eight hours of wear before I notice subtle creasing, so I would still wear an eyeshadow primer if I wanted all-day wear. The packaging is slim and compact with matte black rubberized packaging that absorbs impact better than a harder plastic. There is a mirror inside the compact as well.

The formula of Night Breed is nice, but the flecks of micro-glitter don’t always show up on the lid.  If you want the glitter to appear, make sure to pat on the product and use a stiffer brush, because fluffy brushes tend to catch the glitter between bristles rather than depositing them on the lid.  Night Breed has a soft, smooth texture that’s silky and easy to blend.  There is very little chalkiness and drag with this shade, which can be issues for matte textures.
