NARS Outremer single eyeshadow was  released as part of NARS Fall 2011 collection (modelled by the beautiful Mariacarla Boscono in the promo images). This is one of my favourite collections from NARS in recent times and I’ve also gotten my greedy little hands on the Grand Palais eyeshadow duo which will be reviewed soon.

Price: $23 USD, $45 AUD

Availability: NARS counters worldwide, Mecca Cosmetica Australia (although I’m not sure when the release date is for Australia),  www.narscosmetics.com

Review:

NARS Outremer eye shadow is a stunning matte electric blue that applies true to pan. Pigmentation is medium on the first layer but builds up dramatically to the colour you see in the promo image.

Like many of the NARS matte eye shadows I’ve played with, Outremer has a slightly chalky texture and is quite difficult to blend. Nothing a little bit of patience and layering can’t fix, but for an eyeshadow that they charge $45 for in Australia I would have hoped for a silkier texture.
