I have always had my eye on the Nars eyeshaddow duos and I was so pleased when received the a Nars duo in Bellissima as a gift from a friend. The colours are a beautiful shimmery bright white and a matte taupe. The bright white transfers onto the eyes very sheerly and is not overly pigmented which is nice. It is the perfect shade for under the brow bone or in the inner corner. The matte taupe has almost a purple hue which is really pretty on the eyes. The taupe is well pigmented and looks really nice blended into the outer corners of the eyes with the bright shimmery white in the inner corner. I am really pleased that the made the taupe matte because it balances out the shimmer of the white very nicely. It would have been too much of both colours were shimmery. The packaging of the shadows is so sleek! It looks so nice in my makeup bag. But then again, I expect no less from Nars!
