NARS Montparnasse Duo Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches

Montparnasse

NARS Montparnasse Duo Eyeshadow ($35.00 for 0.14 oz.) includes a warm gold and a medium, plummy brown. The left side was lovely–pigmented, easy to use, long-wearing–but the right side had a disastrous texture: stiff, firm, and required jabbing and pushing to get powder to dislodge from the surface. Given the price point and that it only contains two shades, I couldn’t recommend this one.

Montparnasse (Left)

Montparnasse (Left) is a bright, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, slightly dense texture that wasn’t powdery nor was it too firmly packed in the pan, so it was still blendable and easy to work with. The eyeshadow wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Montparnasse (Right)

Montparnasse (Right) is a medium, plummy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a very firm, stiff texture that was a struggle to use. I had to dig myb rush into the pan and jab at the surface to get enough product to transfer onto my brush. It applied unevenly to my lid and had to be buffed in quite a bit to make it look decent in practice. This shade lasted for seven hours on me.
