Anyone who knows anything about Zoella will know that she used to rave about this duo. So much so, and so such success that I just felt like I NEEDED it – because I have such strong will obviously..
At £25 this is not a purchase made lightly, but after reading some outstanding reviews and knowing that me and warm-copper tones get on like a house on fire, I thought I’d take the plunge – I have never looked back. When I first purchased this I was a tad sceptical of the lack of a matte shade, however… I found you don’t even need it, it’s super weird, but with these two colours you can create a stunning eye look!
First the formula, oh my gosh the formula! Having never tried Nars eyeshadows before this, I had no idea what to expect. But my word have they got this down to a T. They’re pigmented, buttery, super shimmery, long lasting, not too much fall out (though a fair amount of kick-up in the pan), and they just look stunning. The two colours complement each other perfectly and look stunning on the eyes at this time of the year with a dark nude or berry colour.
The packaging is the stereotypical Nars packaging that looks like a good idea, but gets filthy in a matter of seconds… not helpful.
£25 is a lot of money, yes… however, if these are shades you can see yourself wearing on the daily, then I would recommend this whole heartedly.
Have you tried this? If so, what are your thoughts?

I’ve not tried these & I don’t think I could justify the price …buuuutttttt…..they look gorgeous!
Fair enough, I always look at things in a ‘cost per wear’ kinda way… and as I’ve worn them SOO MUCH recently, I kind of don’t mind 😛
And to be fair they are very wearable colours….look at me trying to convince myself!
hahaha! Sorry not sorry 😉
Ok I think I need this in my life immediately! I only really wear eyeshadow in varying shades of gold/bronze so I’d definitely get my money’s worth! I reckon the lighter shade could work really well as highlighter too! Thanks for sharing.

Haha! I know stunning! Unfortunately I am way to pale to use the lighter shade as a highlighter 😛 but I can imagine it being very blinding 😛
