NARS Dogon Eyeshadow Duo: review, swatches, FOTD.

NARS Dogon Eyeshadow Duo

NARS Dogon Eyeshadow Duo

 

NARS Dogon eyeshadow duo was released as part of the Spring 2011 collection, and is (sadly) a limited edition product. I nabbed this from Lilit’s blog sale  about a month ago and have been getting a lot of use out of this gorgeous duo.

Normally I try to avoid posting about discontinued products, but I love Dogon so much that I’m going to go ahead and gush about it anyway. There are a number of ebay sellers currently stocking this duo, although I’ve never bought NARS on ebay so can’t recommend any one in particular.

It is so good for creating smouldering evening looks, and the blue and green undertones in Dogon look fantastic with brown eyes.

Colour

The left side of Dogon is a duochrome shadow with a pinkish taupe base colour and an icy green sheen.

The right side is a charcoal black with a subtle deep blue undertone.

When you layer the left side of Dogon duo on top of the right side shadow, you get this magical opalescent beauty of a colour as shown below. It’s like MAC Club’s more sophisticated older sister.

Texture

The lighter shade in the duo has a smooth texture which is easy to blend on the eye.

The darker shade on the right side of the duo has your typical NARS matte texture- slightly chalky, takes more than the usual amount of patience to blend, and applies patchily on the eye.

I get around this issue by applying my Becca Eye Tint in Pewter underneath, which works remarkably well at improving how the dark side of Dogon applies. It also brings out more of the blue undertone.

Performance

Dogon has reasonable wear time and resists creasing for most of the day. When I used Becca Eye Tint in Pewter, the wear time and crease resistance increases significantly. I haven’t  tried Dogon on top of any other cream eyeshadows but it would be interesting to see how it looks and performs on top of MAC Blackground Paint Pot.

  1. […] use any more force than a delicate dab onto the pan. I’ve complained about the dryness and challenging blendability of many NARS eyeshadows- but this duo is exceptional, and  gives Rouge Bunny Rouge a run for it’s […]
