NARS Caravaggio Eyeshadow Duo

NARS Caravaggio Eyeshadow Duo ($33.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “azalea pink” and “iridescent violet.”

The pink shade is a rich, vibrant raspberry-fuchsia with a pearled sheen–it’s not full-on fuchsia, but it’s not as red or as dark as a raspberry would be (as in the real fruit!). It has such a lovely texture–really dense, smooth, and silky to the touch, plus the color payoff is excellent! The hue is quite similar to Urban Decay’s Woodstock–perhaps the slightest bit darker. MAC Bright Fuchsia is brighter but still similar. MAC Hepcat has a similar base color but has much more purple in it.

The purple shade is a softened, jewel-tone purple with red undertones and a pearled sheen. It, too, has great color opacity with a silky smooth texture that’s rich and dense and a breeze to work with. The color is similar to MAC Double Feature 2 but lighter. MAC Vibrant Grape is also similar but has a much more matte finish.

Per NARS, their eyeshadows are supposed to be long-wearing and crease-resistant. In my experience, they still need to be worn over an eyeshadow base for all-day wear, but alone, they wear seven to eight hours with subtle creasing. They don’t fall apart immediately after application, but an eyeshadow base is recommended for best results.

I voted “Love It” even though I would never wear it–it’s just so lovely. The two colors perfectly capture the two types of bougainvillea that grow all over San Diego.

Yes I agree. I’m curious to know if you think these would work as a blush? I’ve enjoyed wearing INGLOT shadows as blushes in the past, so I’m wondering what you think about these two Christine?

The texture (especially that the purple) looks so luxurious. I just… would never wear these! I love pale pinks but whenever I put colors like this on I just feel like it looks so garish. I’ll save colors like these for my lips!

I have this, got it last year. thought it was pretty average, but i do like it. defs needs a primer underneath as it is no way near longwearing.

I have always loved this one! They were out of stock when I went to buy it, and I have forgotten about this since. Maybe I should take a trip back to Nars…

Beautiful colours! I just don’t know if I’d wear the pink as often as I’d like!
I have to admit, having seen Caravaggio’s paintings these are peculiar colours to associate them with.
