NARS Rated R Eyeshadow Duo

NARS Rated R Eyeshadow Duo ($33.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “shimmering chartreuse” and “electric cobalt blue.” This is the first NARS product I ever looked at–back when I just started getting into makeup–though I did not purchase it at the time. I remember feeling like if you wanted to wear bright eye makeup, you had to have this.

The chartreuse is light-medium mix of yellow and green with a yellowy gold shimmer. It reminded me of MAC Double Feature 2 and Inglot #343 (this is matte). The color payoff is good, and the texture is very soft and finely milled.  The cobalt shade is described well by NARS; it’s blue, it’s purple–no, it’s a harmonious blend of the two with an icy blue shimmer. It is on the sheerer side and has a dusty feel, which is a bit of a bummer. It’s not as blue as Inglot #369 or MAC Winkle. On the other hand, MAC Cobalt is darker and purpler.

Per NARS’ website, their eyeshadows are supposed to be long-wearing and crease-resistant. In my experience, they still need to be worn over an eyeshadow base for all-day wear, but alone, they wear seven to eight hours with subtle creasing. They don’t fall apart immediately after application, but an eyeshadow base is recommended for best results.

THE GLOSSOVER
PRODUCT : 8.5/10
PIGMENTATION : 9/10
TEXTURE : 9/10
LONGEVITY : 8.5/10
APPLICATION : 4/5
PACKAGING : 5/5

FINAL THOUGHTS

Both shades are extremely vibrant and more in-your-face kind of shades, and while they can be used together, you could definitely pair them with other shades in your stash! I wish the cobalt shade was better, because it falls short of good.

OVERALL: B+

OCC Pretty Boy Collection for Fall/Winter 2011

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pretty Boy Collection for Fall/Winter 2011

Who says makeup is only for girls? From David Bowie and Boy George to Adam Lambert, Jared Leto and today’s crop of glam rockers, the impact men have made on the art of makeup is one that still resonates through the present day and boys keep swinging!

Pretty Boy, OCC’s new Fall/Winter 2011 Colour Collection, takes its inspiration from these artists and performers to present a palette created to empower all genders to express themselves with colour.

The creative process began backstage at the Fall/Winter 2011 Collections where the runways were littered with brightly coloured makeup including intense neons and saturated pastels, not typical of what to expect from makeup trends meant for the later months of the year. At BESS NY, under the direction of Makeup Artist Vincent Oquendo, male and female models alike took to the runway in bold neon lips, multi-colored eyes and with some literally covered head-to-toe in glitter. At Eva Minge, Makeup Artist Kristi Matamoros created a look that showcased almost-neon red lips, and at Logan Neitzel, Makeup Artist Victor Henao’s look featured a graphic green/black eye makeup look that made models of both sexes look equally mysterious and androgynous.

OCC’s take on the trend features 6 new intense shades of Lip Tar, alongside new Nail Lacquers, Loose Colours, Pure Pigment powders (a pro favorite!) and Glitter to finish off the look with a bold and dramatic flourish. Available September 6th @ occmakeup.com.

Lip Tar ($13.00)

  • Butch Pastel periwinkle
  • Femme Pale flamingo pink
  • Banjee Freshly sliced mango
  • Queen Screaming neon red
  • Narcissus Creamy pink/lavender
  • Pretty Boy Deep, true fuchsia

  • Poison Primordial forest green
  • Jubilee Pastel blue with intense green/yellow shimmer

Pure Pigment ($12.00)
