NARS Spring 2013: Persia

NARS Persia Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “matte paprika.” It’s a rich, vibrant rusted orange–hints of burnt red in its base–with a matte finish. MAC Hot Paprika is lighter, more muted. Le Metier de Beaute Innocence is redder and shimmery. MAC Red Brick is very similar. MAC Orange is slightly more orange/brighter.

This shade is rich, rich, and rich. The color payoff was intense and so saturated; very true-to-pan, and a little goes a long way. It’s one of the most pigmented eyeshadows I’ve tested by NARS. It’s also soft, finely-milled, and applies smoothly without being powdery. For as pigmented as it is, it still blends beautifully. The texture is a great balance of soft and dense, so I ended up having no trouble blending it with other shades. I will say that use less than you think you need, because it is incredibly pigmented. I tested it when I wore the other two eyeshadow duos in this launch, and it was the best performing out of all the eyeshadows–it was still fully intact after ten hours of wear.
