The NARS Spring 2013 Collection includes the NARS Single Eyeshadow ($20 USD / $24 CAD) in Persia, a shocking, matte paprika orange shade. The collection is full of vibrant hues, reminiscent of the 90′s, that creates a fun, graphic statement for the season. Available now at Sephora!
This eyeshadow is new to the permanent line-up and has the same typical NARS packaging as always. I think that the Single Eyeshadows from NARS are adorable. I know that all eyeshadows are small, but there’s something about the way the packaging just looks like a mini version of the blushes and bronzers that makes it that much more cute!
I’ll have to admit- I’m not one to wear bright orange eyeshadow. While this hot orange isn’t my choice of color, I know that some people would love it. This is probably one of the best eyeshadows I’ve ever seen from NARS in terms of quality; the matte texture is smooth and velvety, and applies with incredible pigmentation. The texture is absolutely amazing… it blends with ease and stays on all day.
A little goes a long way with this shade… and while I don’t see myself sporting in on a regular basis, I know it’s going to come in handy around Halloween time or for editorial use. I wish I all of my matte eyeshadows were this spectacular. Well done, NARS!
