Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Kuala Lumpur

 A couple of weeks ago, I was the seriously lucky winner of the lovely Roshni's 100 follower giveaway over at Roshni's Journey. As you can imagine, I was beyond delighted to realise that the prize was a treat from one of my favourite brands, NARS, and that I could choose any eyeshadow duo I liked. I must say, I had a hard time choosing, tempted as I was by Isolde, Kalahari and Sugarland. However, I finally settled on the stunning Kuala Lumpur and I'm pretty thrilled with my choice. 

The two shades are described by NARS as rose gold and boysenberry infused with gold, which are fairly accurate descriptions (though I can't be the only one whose only frame of reference for boysenberries is Pretty Little Liars' Ezra Fitz!). Both shades look slightly different depending on the light and angle you are viewing them from, hence the two swatch photos.

The rose gold shade can look almost entirely golden, but in certain lights looks more purple than pink. It is very shimmery, although not glittery in the slightest, instead having a pearly and kind of iridescent look. It's very pretty indeed, and perfectly suits its boysenberry partner shade. I love this berry colour, it looks amazing blended into the outer corners of the eye, and those golden flecks that NARS do so well (just like in Orgasm) stay on the right side of the line between sexy sparkle and gaudy glitter. As with all NARS powder products I have tried, these shades are buttery, blendable, highly pigmented and a dream to work with. I'm in love!
