NARS Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo

NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Kalahari *

After a huge mix up from NARS when I was trying to order the new Narsissist Eyeshadow palette, they kindly sent me this beautiful eyeshadow duo to make up for it. I'm still gutted that I haven't got my Narsissist palette yet though - if you've done a review please link it up in the comments! Kalahari is a duo consisting of a gorgeous bronze and a browny taupe, which look similar in the pan, but much more distinct on the eyes. For a neutral lover like me, this is a dream pairing. The shadows are buttery and pigmented, and stay on without creasing for a full day with a primer. Both shades are metallic and give that bronzey glowing look I love. These colours really make blue eyes look brighter too. I wish the photos showed just how gorgeous these colours are, but I just couldn't seem to pick them up properly on camera. The shades in this could have been made for me! NARS duos are so compact that they're perfect to take on an overnight stay, another bonus for this little product. I can't really find anything wrong with this gorgeous little duo and it will be a staple in my makeup bag.

  1. I love the color combination on this one! I wanted to pick it up this summer when I was in France but I accidentally got the wrong one! :p

  2. That stinks about the delay, but wow apparently their customer service is trying by sending you this, props to them! This little duo is SOOO pretty (are these colors in the palette you'll be receiving?)

  3. These colours are gorgeous! I love duos, perfect for travelling.

  9. This is my joint favourite NARS eyeshadow duo alongside Isolde - you just can't beat them for quality!

  10. It's so nice that they gave you this to apologize for the mixup. I've swatched Kalahari a couple times but could never justify the price! It's absolutely gorgeous though and I really want to try NARS shadows x
