NARS Night Breed Eyeshadow

NARS Night Breed Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “black with silver glitter” and that is an apt description. It has a matte, black base with silver micro-glitter strewn through the color. The way it’s placed makes it noticeable but not shimmery or over-the-top. It’s a dark black, though not quite the most intense black, but it certainly does not venture near soft blacks. Lancome The New Black is more intense, but it also has more silver flecks, and even the base has more of a satiny look in comparison.

NARS Eyeshadows are described as “ultra pigmented, long-wearing, [and] crease-resistant” that can be applied wet or dry. I get around eight hours of wear before I notice subtle creasing, so I would still wear an eyeshadow primer if I wanted all-day wear. The packaging is slim and compact with matte black rubberized packaging that absorbs impact better than a harder plastic. There is a mirror inside the compact as well.

The formula of Night Breed is nice, but the flecks of micro-glitter don’t always show up on the lid.  If you want the glitter to appear, make sure to pat on the product and use a stiffer brush, because fluffy brushes tend to catch the glitter between bristles rather than depositing them on the lid.  Night Breed has a soft, smooth texture that’s silky and easy to blend.  There is very little chalkiness and drag with this shade, which can be issues for matte textures.

Oh my gosh! I just died a little … that is GORGEOUS! I wish I had more occasions to wear black eyeshadow, but I might have to splurge on this anyway … it looks just like the night sky!

I tried this line from NARS (the night collection) and found that the glitter does not stay on well. Also, blending is kind of difficult. But the swatch is beautiful.

I bought this few months ago, this color is incredibly stunning, It can be used as a eyeliner or a eyeshadow for smoky eyes! Thats a must have item!!!!!

I purchased this for new years eve a few years ago and was completely dissapointed 🙁
The glitter didn’t show up on eyes at all just in case also flecked a lot of black onto my skin which smudged and made me look awful! Waste of money for me oh well…

I find that with all of the shadows from nars’ night collection. i have night fever (akin to MAC BeautyMarked)and the only way i’ve ever been able to get the glitter to show is by using something super tacky like the Sephora Prime Pot or Too Faced Glitter Glue.
