Do you remember the story of Tristan and Isolde who fell hopelessly in love after drinking a love potion? Well, I feel like I was put under a spell too after I got the NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Isolde! I’ve fallen so madly in love with it that I’ve barely been able to put it down since it landed on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago.
The key thing that stands out for me with this little duo is that the shadows are so buttery and smooth that they almost feel like cream. Because of this incredible texture, they tick all the right boxes: they have zero fallout, blend effortlessly and have amazing pigmentation.
The shades are the type you could easily wear all year round. Pair them with a deep lipstick for a rich fall-appropriate look, switch to a red pout for a glamorous Christmas party or wear them on your summer complexion to achieve a gorgeous bronze goddess charm. Longevity is great, so they won’t fail you no matter the occasion.
I really can’t find a single fault to this mesmerizing formula, the only con is in the price: at €34 it definitely falls into the high-end category, but if you’re in for a treat, NARS Isolde will hardly disappoint.
Have you ever tried any Nars Duos? I’ve heard the quality is not consistent within the range, what was your experience? And what’s the last makeup item that put you under a spell?
