I was super excited when I heard that Nars was collaborating with the legendary French photographer, Sarah Moon. The collection is a limited six-piece line with beautifully designed packaging, inspired by the 1927 science fiction film Metropolis. It would be a dream to have the whole collection but for now I have chosen this Shadow Side eye kit which I have fallen in love with. It contains a mini Audacious mascara and three mini twist-up shadow sticks that are perfect for travelling and for touch-ups on-the-go.
Top to Bottom swatches – Lucid Dream, Real Surreal, Nunavut Dream
- Lucid Dream – a warm taupe with subtle shimmer with semi-sheer coverage.
- Real Surreal – a warm brown with a pearly sheen.
- Nunavut Dream – a rich, deep purple with a satin shimmer and has a semi-opaque coverage.
The colours glide on easily without dragging the delicate skin around the eye, and I find them very long-lasting even without using an eye primer. I find Lucid Dream and Real Surreal both easy to blend whereby I am able to just use my fingertips to even it out, but for a smokey eye look with Nunavut Dream, I need a blending brush to even out the harsh lines for a seamless finish. You can wear each one alone and they can be applied under or over other eyeshadows. I love the velvety matte finish and they don’t crease throughout the day. The Audacious mascara in Black Moon has dual-bristles and I wear this over my Ardell Demi Wispies to complete the look. You can check out the limited Shadow Side Eye Kit here, and you can see the rest of the stunning Nars x Sarah Moon collection here.
