When it comes to eye shadow, NARS is my absolute go-to. No surprise there! I love the intensity of their pigments, the combinations in color, and their fluid blending. For their latest collection NARS collaborated with famed UK fashion designer, Christopher Kane, and released a series exploring the nature of neon. I was immediately hooked.
I picked up the Parallel Universe eye shadow duo and gave it a run this weekend (now that my summer tan is in full swing). I typically shy away from purple and lavender shades but the pop of color in this set works my complexion in all the right ways. The shimmer provides some serious sparkle, making me feel like a fairy princess with a bit of an edge. The extra bonus? On their own each shadow can definitely be applied with a more gentle touch, providing for a softer, more subtle daily look. In fact, Kane deliberately selected hues that would pack a bold punch but could also function as sheer neutrals. Totally versatile and oh-so-much fun!
