NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Review | Subra & Dione


As-salamu alaykum and hello everyone ♡. Today we are going to talk about the new NARS Single Eyeshadows! Hoyeah! NARS has introduce the new Dual-Intensity Eyshadow. Describe as an eyeshadow that you can wear it dry or wet (that means you use it with medium or water to give more intense pigmentation). It is a creaseless, eight-hour wear eye shadow with a transformative texture for wet or dry application. This Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow has smooth, versatile texture that goes on dry for a sheer soft touch of sensual color, or wet for a high-impact finish. A lasting shadow, it achieves elevated eye looks that range from romantic to bold.

My first impression of the variety of shades, perfect for anyone! You can really tell the shades that they offers are pretty neutral in color. I got the chance to try 2 of the shades in this collection that is Subra (a Black Orchid shade) and Dione (a Metallic Champagne Beige shade). Twelve ready to wear romantic shades for you to choose from!

I love the shades that I got. Especially Dione. I am a sucker for champagne-beige eye shadow shade because I find it flatters my eye by just wear it alone on my lid. Dione is describe as metallic champage beige. It has this taupe kinda tone in it with a beige base. The Subra is describe as a shimmery dark brown with just a hint of plum. Love love this color! Wear this alone and you et that nice dark eyeshadow color that does not look flat because if the intense metallic effect and plums tone in it.

According to the NARS Makeup artist, Justin Heslop on how to use the eyeshdow on the "wet" version is that you need your brush to be damp but not soaking wet. Here is the trick, you took a makeup sponge, damp it and took your eyeshadow brush and push it on the sponge to get make the brush damp. Swipe the brush on to the eyeshadow and apply it on your lid. It will give you a cool wet effect and I find that it looks so nice for night out or just that glam night you would like to rule!

Here is my creation using both shades (dry method). As you can see even when its dry it is super intense! The color payoff is just amazeballs. I warn you this is very metallic, the Dione color is perfect for day time and Subra is perfect for night time or use it as a bottom liner. In this look I am using Dione as a base and Subra on the outer corner of my eye and bring it down to my lower lash. It does not crease and it stay super long even without primer. Just that I think I need to use another neutral matte shadows just to give a transaction color on the outer crease just to reduce the harshness of the metallic effect.

Also that, these eyeshadow are recommend to be use together with the Wet/Dry Eyeshadow Brush from NARS. The brush looks so sleeke with NARS logo engraved on the end of the brush. The brush is fluffy and I love the shade of the brush that makes application easy. You can purchase these awesome eyeshaodw at NARS Counter near you.
