I can’t wait till NARS arrived in Singapore! I am sure many of us feel that I am a big fan of NARS blushes, I have reviewed NARS Orgasm and NARS Angelika before. I can’t wait to get my hands on more NARS blushes. I also think that NARS eyeshadows are great. They are very well pigmented and they last very long.
I bought this eyeshadow from Barneys when they had free shipping promotion. I had a difficult time choosing their wide range of eyeshadows. I had NARS Duo in Underworld before and greatly satisfied with the quality and color. I wanted to have NARS duo in brown color and I really didn’t know which one to get. NARS has so many duo eyeshadows and I think I want too many of them. But finally I picked Cordura
Cordura is a mixture of bronze with mini golden shimmer and a dark taupe color with mini golden shimmer too. NARS Cordura has amazing pigmentation. It’s very pigmented even on the first swipe. It’s very easy to build the color on the eyes. For people who need to have a fast make up in the morning, I think this is a great choice. It took me 5 minutes to do the whole eye makeup.
The eyeshadow is also very long lasting. Yes I used a primer before I applied the eyeshadow, but still I think it’s amazing. I applied the makeup at 7.30am and when I reached home after dinner at 8pm it still stayed there! No smudge at all! Too bad I did not take a picture of me at the end of the day to show you all.
As much I as want to say how perfect this eyeshadow is, I still found a downside of Cordura. When I applied the eyeshadow in the morning, there are some fallouts which is annoying. I need to swipe the fallouts and make sure that my face is clean before I apply my moisturizer and sunblock. Although this is not a big downside, I would still hope that this will not occur.
I did a look with NARS Cordura. I didn’t take a picture of my whole makeup face because I was in a rush. I hope you still like it I am sorry my eyeliner does not look very good in the picture, it’s the result of a flash makeup :p LOL
have you ever tried any NARS duo eyeshadow? Which one is your favorite?
