I attended a beauty event at my local Blue Mercury today. I actually had made the appointment over a month ago when I found out a Nars artist would be coming in today. The town I live in has a Blue Mercury THREE blocks from where I live which is very dangerous for me. I try to limit my trips to events such as today or if I refill on something because otherwise I would be there way to often and buying ALL the Nars! I was excited to try out the new Dual Intensity Eyeshadows and see the Holiday gift sets. I was very impressed with the Dual Intensity eyeshadow and their consistency and staying power. These pictures are from 8 hours later.
The MUA used a cream pencil as a base which I did not think would last like this. My only experiance is with nars cream eyeshadows and they crease like crazy. I thought it was a really interesting blend of colors. I had always been intimidated by Pandora which is a duo eyeshadow that looks black/white. The black side blends out to the nice silvery/grey you see.
