NARS Belle-Ile is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium copper with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $28.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
NARS Belle-Ile Velvet Shadow Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a golden, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage, which I was able to build to nearly full coverage with three layers of product. The texture was smooth, slightly creamy but not quite as emollient as most shades in the range. There was some unevenness in the texture as I layered the color, though it did not appear patchy. I noticed creasing after six hours of wear.
