Nars Isolde Eyeshadow Duo

When I first saw the Nars Isolde Eyeshadow Duo, I instantly thought - I must have this, life will never be the same again without it in my life. I mean, c'mon guys just look at those sultry amber tones. It's simply gorgeous.

I first heard about this duo through the wonderful ViviannaDoesMakeup, a lady who very often influences my make up purchases. When the new NARS palettes came out in January, this was in hers and it was love at first sight for me. I wished I'd found it last Autumn, as the shadows are so Autumnal it makes me want to wrap up in a scarf and be sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte regardless of it being sunny in London right now - they look like a roaring fire I think!

First things first, I have to say that these are quite possibly the most pigmented eyeshadows I've ever used. They are like when you wet Urban Decay shadows but on hyperdrive. When I first used the Isolde Duo, I use the gold shade all over the lid applied with a flat shader and good grief, the blending I had to do after because they pack a wonderfully intense punch. This is such a beautiful shade for Blue eyed girls like me, or even green eyed, they make those puppies pop!

The great thing about this duo is that you can wear both the shadows alone all over the lid, or together and both options look so flattering.

Another thing I really want to point out about the Isolde Duo is the longevity of the shadows on the eye without a primer. I'm not really one to use a specific primer for my eyes, I feel like its a bit of a nothingy product but thats just me! So when this duo lasted from 6am to 6pm with no creasing, no transferring, no dropdown or smudges I was seriously impressed. Usually when someone asks me whats the best shadow for not creasing I usually point them in the direction of Charlotte Tilbury, but these are so fantastic I will be point there too now!

The next duo I have my eye on is Silk Road - a more pink toned version of Isolde. Next pay day come at me, my online basket is ready...
