NARS Wildfire (Spring 2017) Velvet Shadow Sticks Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Belle-Ile

NARS Belle-Ile Velvet Shadow Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a golden, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage, which I was able to build to nearly full coverage with three layers of product. The texture was smooth, slightly creamy but not quite as emollient as most shades in the range. There was some unevenness in the texture as I layered the color, though it did not appear patchy. I noticed creasing after six hours of wear.

Siros

NARS Siros Velvet Shadow Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a golden sheen that also had some larger bits of gold sparkle. It had medium coverage in one pass, which was buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The consistency was creamy without being too emollient, so it was easy and comfortable to run along the eyelid. This shade started to show signs of creasing after six hours of wear.

Usbek

NARS Usbek Velvet Shadow Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark purple with warmer, plummy undertones and a cooler, blue and violet pearl finish. It had a smooth, creamy consistency that wasn’t too slick, so I was able to build the coverage from semi-opaque to opaque with two layers without getting any patchiness. The edges were a little harder to diffuse compared to a powder eyeshadow, and the richer color made that more apparent. It wore well for six hours on me before creasing.

Grand Large

NARS Grand Large Velvet Shadow Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium sky blue with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage, but the texture did no favors as it built up. The consistency, while creamy and smooth on the lid, bunched up and looked uneven and thicker in places as I tried to get more pigmentation out of it. It was really best applied as an all-over wash of color and used as a base for powder eyeshadow. It started to crease after five hours of wear on me.
