NARS Christopher Kane Parallel Universe Eyeshadow Duo

No comments :
Talk about a hidden gem here! I had no idea that this was going to be so pretty in person. I hadn't seen much about the Christopher Kane collection online, but I for some reason really liked the hot pink "NARS" on the packaging, and I knew I needed to pick something up. I ended up getting it off the Bloomingdale's site because that was the only place that wasn't sold out of it at the time I ordered. I can't say I was overly excited about it, because from their pictures it just looked like a lavender and purple shadow. I was VERY pleasantly surprised to see that these shades are gorgeous in person!

There are 2 beautiful shades here - a pink toned champagne with silver, pink, and gold sparkles in it, and a pink toned lavender with pink and violet sparkles in it. (This one reminds me of an eyeshadow version of MAC's Rags to Riches Dazzleglass!
As I was saying, I couldn't tell by the pictures on the site how shimmery and pretty these shadows are in person. There's so much sparkle to them when they hit the light and move, it's hard to capture in a photo!

Here is the first shade - even a closeup in the pan doesn't really show the sparkle it has to it.

And here is the second shade:

Both colors are so nice and I'm really glad I decided to pick this up. Despite them being super glittery, I don't experience a lot of fallout with them, which is nice. The glitter is really fine so it doesn't make a mess everywhere. I like that the two colors go nicely together, as that is not always the case with NARS duos! (I have Mad Mad World which is a bright matte blue and green, which makes it so hard to use both shades in one look haha) It's really a nice duo and if you can still get your hands on it, I definitely suggest it! It keeps selling out and restocking on the NARS site, so I would keep an eye on it!
