Dare I say it, but this absolutely my favorite set of browns from NARS. The NARS Surabaya Duo. It is amazing to apply to looks into the crease area of the eye as it adds great dimension Narscosmetics.com decribes it as a brown sugar & chestnut which I feel is an accurate description:
“Modern, unique, sometimes unexpected color combinations of eyeshadow shades. Worn alone or together, all Duo Eyeshadow shades feature micro-fine powders that are highly pigminted, longwearing and crease resistant. Color glides on smoothly, evenly and blends effortlessly. The effects can be subtle or smoldering — the options are endless.

Now I decided to perform a little research and learned that Surabaya is actually Indonesia’s second-largest city with a population of over 2.7 million. This place has a variety of cultures of foreign nationalities which includes Malaysian, Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Arab, and European.
In addition to Javanese and Madurese natives, the city also has representatives of other Indonesian areas: Sunda, Minangkabau, Batak, Banjar, Balinese, and Bugis. Surabaya is the main trading port in East Java. Enriched by its facilities, and geography advantages, Surabaya has great economic potential. The city has a somewhat earthy look from the photos yet very beautiful also as you see above..
