NARS Pasiphae Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering peacock burgundy.” It’s a muted, medium-brown with lighter olive green shimmer-sheen; it seemed like a duochrome, but it doesn’t really shift noticeably. On the eye, it mostly looks like an olive green over a warmer, murky brown. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to apply to bare lids, and the color wore for seven hours dry, eight hours damp before fading. Damp application yields much more opaque coverage, whereas dry application is sheer to semi-sheer. Giorgio Armani Green Iron (06) (P, $38.00) is darker, cooler. Gucci Beauty FumΓ© (Left) (P, ) is lighter, cooler. Too Faced Don’t Settle (LE, $16.00) is cooler. Kat Von D On the Road (P, $16.00) is cooler. bareMinerals Flicker (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter.

Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Telesto Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “brown with gold shimmer.” It’s a medium brown with warm, orange-y undertones and a golden shimmer-sheen finish.

It lasted for seven hours applied dry, almost eight when applied damp. Zoeva Subtle Blend (P, ) is darker. LORAC Dream Girl #8 (LE, ) is darker. Too Faced Puppy Love (P, ) is darker, cooler.

Formula Summary | NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is supposed to be sheer when applied dry, opaque when applied with a dampened brush, and this is sometimes true, sometimes not. Some shades are very sheer, while a few were quite pigmented dry. If you aren’t someone who likes to use their eyeshadows wet, then I would say to look elsewhere, but if you like the idea of two types of finishes and color coverage, you may like these. The texture is generally soft, blendable, and smooth, and the wear is average (seven to eight hours).
