Review: NARS Carravagio Eye Shadow Duo ($34.00) www.sephora.com or www.narscosmetics.com

      I love, love, love this shade, as you can see the purple side has been well loved in the Nars Caravaggio Duo I am super obsessed with purples as it has been a long love affair which is still going strong.  Nars describes it as an Azalea Pink with an Iridescent Violet which is an accurate description. I cannot describe the beauty properly in words you have to see the swatches below. http://www.narscometics describes thier shadows as:

       “Modern, unique, sometimes unexpected color combinations of eyeshadow shades. Worn alone or together, all Duo Eyeshadow shades feature micro-fine powders that are highly pigmented, longwearing and crease resistant. Color glides on smoothly, evenly and blends effortlessly. The effects can be subtle or smoldering — the options are endless.

  • True color application
  • Can be applied dry or with a dampened brush for stronger intensity.
  • Multifunction use for shading, lining and highlighting the eyes.
  • Classic, neutral, and fashion-forward shade pairings.” 

You will see the swatches below the history lesson..lol

Now I’m always digging around into products name and I have always loved the name of this duo so I came across the follow of the name:
    “Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio  born 29 September 1571 – 18 July 1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta, and Sicily between 1593 and 1610. His paintings, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, had a formative influence on the Baroque school of painting.”
Check out his strong, powerful and beautiful masterpieces below:

Amor Vincit Omnia. 1601–1602.Caravaggio shows Cupid prevailing over all human endeavors: war, music, science, government

The Musicians, 1595–1596
Judith Beheading Holofernes 1598–1599
 Now onto the swatches 🙂
