  • "Recently ordered this in Sephora favorites kit and got a full size of the eyeshadow in that kit and I must say I do enjoy the texture it's so creamy and soft and has a great color payoff " in 26 reviews
  • "THESE SHADOWS ARE AHH-MAZING! I purchased Dione and Callisto, and they are simply gorgeous! I apply them with a wet brush, and they have a beautiful metallic shimmer that lasts ALL DAY. The shimmer does not fall down under my eyes throughout the day. They are creamy, smooth, and easy to apply. I seriously want every color but will have to buy one every now and then at this price point. Worth every penny! I hope these stick around for good! NARS really hit a home run with these!

Beyond worth the price tag! This is my absolute favorite eyeshadow of all time, and I find myself wearing it every day despite my sizeable makeup collection. It's a stunning rose gold color that blends easily, but isn't too warm toned for my cool-toned pale skin. The shadow pan itself lasts a long time; I've had this shadow over a year and use it constantly, but I am nowhere near to hitting pan.

Review for: Cassiopeia more...
This is a beautiful color that can be used in multiple ways. As a base, it adds just enough color and shimmer to help a color pop. As a shimmer on top of another color, the duo chrome effect really brings out the purple. If you wet the brush, you will get the most beautiful pigment! With a different shade, I could even see someone using this as a highlighter.

Review for: Cassiopeia, Himalia more...
These colors are so pigmented and amazing and yes they are pricey but people need to remember that Nars is a pricey brand. I love how cute and compact they are and the pigmentation on your eyes is amazing. Plus they have a great color selection for neutral lovers and those who want more color in their look. Himalia is my favorite and I have repurchased twice.

Gorgeous! They’re a little pricy, but the swatch will sell you anyway. I like to use this to add a glossy highlight to my neutral eye look after using my Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette. Go swatch it and you’ll be sold!

Review for: Europa more...
As if I don't love Nars enough already, this shade (Europa) is so dreamy. I don't use this alone but more for a shimmer and base for another color. It's dimensions range from peachy metallic to pink sunsets. I absolutely LOVE it maybe even as a little nose highlighter!!! NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow

Imma start off saying I hate animal cruelty products but I was swapping it and it’s just so pigmented so I gave it a try! This product cost about $30 and that’s too much for such a small product ! But the product is beautiful

Beautiful formula. I used to use their original pressed powder eyeshadows and although they were pretty, I'd get hard pan so easily just like their blushes. I'm so glad they finally changed their formula. So smooth and pigmented. Works both wet and dry. Definitely has more dimethicone though.

NARS is a great luxury brand that has beautiful eyeshadow colors. I have a few of these colors and love them all. They are so gorgeous on and looks great on everyone. I would buy again although a little pricey, but it’s a high end brand. Recommend!!

This product has little fall out and great pigment. I got it in a Sephora favorite and I use it a lot. When I got it it was good value and I wouldn’t buy it again separately unless I needed it. Overall it’s a great product!

I bought these 4 of these Dual Intensity Eyeshadows at my local TjMaxx and I have fallen in love with all of them. I found that they apply best with your finger or a wet brush and once they are at full pigment they are amazing. If they are applied dry they look lackluster though. For the price I paid they are definitely worth it and you cannot go wrong with Nars.

These colors are so amazing, but they are so expensive. Are they worth it and what color is a must if I only bought one?

I've been looking for a light eyeshadow that I can use as a base and add darker colors on top of. Is it as shimmery as it looks? Thank you :)
