NARS – Duo Eyeshadows – Product Photos (Part 1)

NARS Cosmetics – Duo Eyeshadows – Product Photos (Part 1)

Next to their blushes and The Multiples, I’d say NARS’ duo eyeshadows are the next favorite. Available in four duo cream eyeshadows (each retails for $32 and includes Thebes, Unconditional Love, Summer Time, and Madagascar).  But it’s not the cream ones that are the real crowd-pleaser, it’s the 49 permanent shades of powder duo eyeshadows (each retails for $32).

Today, we’re going to share with you all forty-nine flavors of these duo shadows (plus the four creamier ones), starting with this first set of product photos.

Make Up For Ever: Star Powders & Pure Pigments

Make Up For Ever Star Powders ($19.00 for 0.09 oz.) are finely milled loose color. Think MAC pigments, but more of a powdery texture and more finely milled. They can be used wherever you want, however you want. I only used mine with mixing medium, personally, as I found without the adhesiveness of mixing medium, they didn’t stay put as well.

Pure Pigments ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) are extremely pigment-rich loose color that are matte in finish. They’re like Star Powders, but they’re more intense and contain no shimmer. Pretty much all of the Pure Pigments will stain the skin (and your brushes — so be sure to wash those ASAP! after using).

Which of these are your favorites?
