NARS Tatar Eye Paint
NARS Tatar Eye Paint

NARS Tatar Eye Paint ($25.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “black with purple shimmer.” It’s a subtly violet-tinted black with violet, purple, and fuchsia micro-shimmer–which translates as a shimmery, blackened purple. Urban Decay Delinquent appears lighter with larger purple sparkle. MAC Permaplum is lighter, less shimmery. Estee Lauder Blackened Plum is matte. Bobbi Brown Twilight Night is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.

I was worried this was going to perform like Ubangi, but this didn’t have as much slip (a good thing!), so while it was creamy and easy to spread out, it didn’t sheer out right off the bat. It ended up being more like Snake Eyes in terms of consistency and wear.  As an eyeliner, it applies pretty much with opaque color without skipping or dragging, and as an eyeshadow, it goes on mostly opaque with just a little sheerness.  The formula is buildable, so you can achieve full color coverage by lightly patting on a second layer in the places that need it.  It held up better on the lash line–nine hours without fading or smudging–than on the lid, which is wear it had some slight creasing after eight hours of wear.

  1. Just a bit too dark for me to be practical.

  2. *picks up jaw from the floor* This is wish list material, definitely!

  3. Great pigmentation! This looks like it would be a good base for dark eye shadows that need a bit of help.
