NARS recently invited me to preview some of the new spring colors and the metallic eye shadows really caught my attention. They have amazing sheen, without being too glittery and can be applied wet or dry depending on the intensity and look of the color you are trying to achieve. The look comes off as modern, not fussy with these new metallics.
The in house makeup pros demonstrated the application and let us feel the texture of the shadow again our skin. The texture was velvet like and the color was beautifully glistening with just the amount of pop for a night out on the town. Some of the lighter colors could also be worn with a one layer application for daytime.
My favorite shades of the line were Subra, Lysithea, Callisto, and Sycroax. Subra is a pretty plum, brownish shade. Lysithea is an airy, palest of green shade. Callisto is a variation of a light rose gold, shimmery tone. Sycroax is a rich, glistening dark of night black color.
Wet your brush with water before application to build a strong metallic coverage on the lid, perfect for girls night out or a sultry date night. Keep your brush dry for a lesser, more sheer application fit for a little glimmer in the daylight, dewey lid look.
