I got a decent sized sample of this a few weeks ago because generally, I’m a bit of a loser when it comes to applying gel or cream liners but I wanted Baalbek as soon as I saw the colour – mostly to use as a cream eyeshadow (Nars Eye Paints are supposed to work as liners or shadows/bases). I finally went back to get the full size because, to my surprise, I was actually able to master using this as a liner as well as shadow. To line my eyes, I used a Sephora smudger brush to get a smudgey, smokey line, which I generally prefer, or a Quo bend eyeliner brush if I want a more crisp and precise line. I doubt I will ever master a “flick” (I think perhaps it just doesn’t work with the shape of my eyes) but I am sure mastering applying this as a liner. The colour is beautiful – a bronzey, olivey brown murky shade with flecks of gold. So pretty on brown eyes and this will be perfect for autumn (which is still some months away….)

Temptalia Review

NARS Baalbek Eye Paint ($25.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as “bronze.” It’s a blackened-brown with warm, olive undertones and dirty gold and bronze shimmer. MAC Past Twilight (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. Sephora Collection Diving in Malaysia (18) (P, $9.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Crave (P, $19.00) has no shimmer. Urban Decay Corrupt (P, $19.00) is lighter. MAC Orpheus (LE, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
