REVIEW: NARS Duo in Blade Runner ($34.00)

Blade Runner is describe as a shimmering forest green and a shimmering mahogany which I find is an accurate description. narscosmetics.com site describes them in the following way
 “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, long wearing 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.”
These colors are richly pigmented and soft to the touch.  I find that they do match in a unique way as the mahogany goes well on the lid and the forest green in the crease to a part of the lid, but I keep the highlight shade a neutral with no sheen close to the skin tone.  That works for me when wearing it as not to look garish. These also look good as a wash of color on the lid.with either color alone as well, just keep in mind that these are very pigmented.
