When the Dual Intensity shadows first launched, Himalia was one of the shades I really wanted but these are so pricey as singles in Canada and I've yet even to hit pan on any of the shadows I own, so I held back. Then I was able to get this beauty in the Dual Intensity palette. This is a warm, shimmery beige/light bronze shade and I really like it. It seems a lot of people very much dislike the Dual Intensity shadows (while loving MAC's In Extra Dimension shadows which have basically the same finish, it seems to me) but I really like them. I like the fact that when used dry, these are not too heavily pigmented since I like to have a level of control with really shimmery shadows. But used wet, you can tget a full wattage type finish. Himalia is such a pretty colour for all over my lid, with a subtle matte colour in the crease. In the summer months, I love wearing this for an evening out as the shade and the sheen look so right and so "sultry summer nights".

I think this is my favourite shade of all the shadows in the Narsissist palette. Sadly, it's only available in the palette but I really hope they decide to release this as a single shadow. It's a beautiful, rich warm brown that is more deep than it is red (really red-toned browns don't look good on me). Used dry, it's rich but subtle and easy to blend. Used damp, it has a rich sheen but, to be honest, I find using it dry suits my needs much better. In finish and colour, I find it very similar to MAC Havana (LE), which I also really like. I LOVE this shadow
