Tropical Express

NARS Tropical Express Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) included an eggplant purple, gold, soft green, and bright purple. Three shades were quite good and easy to use, but the purple was a total disaster–it was sheer, difficult to build up, a challenge to blend, and all-in-all, a poor representation of NARS’ matte formula.

Pulp Fiction

NARS Pulp Fiction Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes a silvery lilac, deep purple, soft lavender, and iridescent lavender. I give props to NARS for attempting an all purple-hued quad, but all four shades fell short of expectations in at least one way, if not more. The quad has to be used with a primer to be decent on its own, and it would only be ideal for someone who prefers a sheerer look overall.

Moskova

NARS Moskova Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, permanent quad that features a blue-teal, pop of green, inky navy blue, and medium-dark blue. The two shimmery shades were nicely pigmented and easy enough to use, while the two more matte shades need primer and some extra effort to blend out well.

Mahe

NARS Mahe Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, permanent neutral set of hues with three shimmers and one matte, though two of the shimmers were more satin-to-pearl. I think this set of shades, based on pigmentation and texture, will be most suitable for someone tends to use eyeshadow primer or some sort of base as three of the four shades were slightly dusty.

Bayadere

NARS Bayadere Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, permanent set of warm-toned neutrals that range from glittery copper to dark bronze. The four shades worked well together, but the glittery copper (#1) was chunky and had to be used with a dampened brush in order to function decently. I wish they had gone with a high-shine, more metallic shade, as it would have coordinated even better with the other three shades and been easier to work with.

Silver Screen

NARS Silver Screen Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new(ish) set of shades for a classic, silvery smoky eye, but it had a slight twist–there was a pewter shade that was much warmer compared to the other three shades, yet it wasn’t a distinctively warm-toned shade. The quality of three of the four shades was decent to good, while one fell a bit short for me (though not in a way that was a deal-breaker, I’d expect).
