NARS Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow









NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Alhambra: £23.50

Ohhh NARS. A brand I love so much for their blushes and bronzers at the moment. I thought it was about time I ventured into their world of eyeshadows by now after hearing great things about them, and boy am I glad I did!

After virtually browsing the wide range of shades for what felt like an eternity, I finally settled on this duo named Alhambra. Consisting of a "metallic rose mist & golden champagne" it sounded right up my street. The colours are so lovely - totally wearable; every day pink and gold tones with enough shimmer to lighten up the eye area, but subtle enough to not look too overdone. The consistency of the shadows is gloriously buttery, they're super easy to blend and they have amazing pigmentation. I like to wear a mixture of both shades across the lid, with the rose on the inner corners and just under the lower lash line to perk up the skin a little with its shimmery magic. Complements blue eyes really well in my opinion but I think it would look great with all over eyeball varieties too.

If you're after something not quite nude but still a product that you can get a lot of use out of, this duo may well be for you. Huge thumbs up for this one, NARS has done it yet again! I can't stop swooning.

Have you tried any NARS shadows? Let me know if you have any recommendations! Do you like the look of Alhambra?

  10. I bought this duo about 2 months ago, and have worn it so much - I love the rose gold under my lower lash line, really brightens my eyes up. Gorgeous with some black liner and tonnes of mascara. Xx

  14. I love your blog, and i dont really want to say this as i think your design is super cute. The only thing is that the color of your writing is so light that i have a hard time reading it. I might be that i totally need glasses though:)

    btw - Lovely Nars product!

  33. This one definitely jumped out at me when I saw it in the shop. For a not as wearable, more for nighttime kind of duo, I've been eyeing up NARS' Brousse (violet *swoon*). x

  37. I love the Portobello duo by NARS! At first glance they seem sort of boring since they're just matte brown shades but they're beautiful and have a cool toned cast to them. I got my duo for xmas and have used it everyday since!

  38. I love the look of this, it really suits you Emma! I've got All About Eve and Portobello - Portobello making a perfect base for any neutral shades. I'm currently after Kalahari too!
