NARS Kauai Eyeshadow Duo ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new and permanent duo from NARS' spring collection. Both shades were very, very pigmented with an incredibly soft, almost creamy, texture. The consistency was dense, buttery, and over-the-top metallic. It's a formula that could also be used wet to bring out the metallic finish even more (though entirely unnecessary, as it is opaque and metallic applied dry). When I wore these shades, both lasted for a full nine hours without creasing or fading. This is one of the best eyeshadow duos I've seen NARS put out from the intensity of the pigmentation to the feel of the powder itself.
This duo is just as wonderful as Christine described it in her review. I was so delighted to find it available at Sephora. Both shadows are so pigmented and smooth so they apply beautifully. The pairing is very flattering and versatile too, which isn't something you can say about all of Nars's shadow pairings. The purple side is a beautiful, feminine clear purple (no "bruised eyes" look with this) but what I'm even more delighted with is the champagne side as it's identical to UD's Mauie Wowie but without the uncontrollable glitter fallout.
