NARS Surabaya Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Can you believe that i have never owned a NARS eyeshadow up until now??? A few months back i purchased the eyeshadow duo in Surabaya.

I decided on a colour that i could wear on a daily basis but be able to dress it up at night. I chose Surabaya because the rusty colour really attracted me and i knew it would look gorgeous on!

There are two shades and one is a rusty, rich dark brown shade and the other is a more earthy, terracotta colour. They both have subtle shimmers in the eyeshadow but it doesn't overpower the colour itself.

Both shades blend beautiful together as a duo and the colours compliment each other. The eyeshadows are highly pigmented, just like any other NARS products and you only need a minimal amount of shadow for the lids. These colours are so versatile and can be used as shadow, liner, shading and highlighting the eyes.

I find that whether you are wearing the colours individually or combined together, they blend effortlessly and are smooth in application. I think £24 is quite pricey when you can purchase some of their other eyeshadow palettes with six colours but, then again, this duo would last you ages!

NARS duo eyeshadows retail at £24 and can be purchased HERE

Have any of you tried NARS Surabaya? What are your favourite duos?
