NARS Gabon is a very warm-toned, very dark green with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $25.00 and contains 0.07 oz.
NARS Gabon Hardwired Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a "bronzed green." It's a dirty, dark olive green with lighter golden khaki sparkle and shimmer. This one was the driest of the three, and it takes some buffing to blend out the edges so it doesn't look dry on the lid as well. I also felt like this one had less pigment when applied damp than dry, though it was buildable. There was some fall out during wear, and this shade lasted for eight hours before creasing. Dior Pied de Poule #5 (P) is less sparkly. theBalm #30 (P, $6.50) is lighter, less sparkly. MAC Greenluxe #4 (P) is darker. Giorgio Armani #24 (LE, $33.00) is warmer. Giorgio Armani #14 (LE, $33.00) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
