NARS Arcturus is a moderately cool-toned, dark blue with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $29.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
NARS Arcturus Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with cool undertones and a very pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage applied dry, which lasted for seven and a half hours, and it was more blendable dry than damp. It had richer, more opaque coverage applied damp, but it was moderately difficult to blend it out and tended to look patchy as I blended, though it lasted for eight hours. I also noticed that it faded down more when applied damp but then blended. Make Up For Ever I220 Sapphire (DC, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar).
