I purchased the Nouveau Monde duo from http://www.narscosmetics.com and I remember swatching it a few times over and over at Sephora until I had a break down and got it. It is described as a metallic silver lilac and a rich olive gold and in the following at narscosmetics.com:
“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.
- “Best Overall Eyeshadow” 2011 InStyle “Best Beauty Buys”
- 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.”
Nouveau Monde in French means New World in English. I can see the inspiration because to me I can see this shadow combinations in a futuristic new world with it’s metallic sheen in a world like the Jetson’s where even the robots wear makeup. I love these colors together on the eye even though both metallic I find that they just work beautifully blending together harmoniously and each are soft in color as can be worn alone. The pigmentation is perfect! The blend-ability and texture is Butter! What more could you want! I rated this shadow duo in Nouveau Monde 5 out of 5 stars.
