In love: NARS Galapagos Shimmer Eye Shadow

I popped into my local Mecca Cosmetica store on Saturday to have my makeup done for a friend’s 40th birthday (a Masquerade Ball, no pressure!) and left with a seriously fabulous ‘eye’ and a brand new eye shadow to obsess about, NARS Galapagos Shimmer shadow.
A seriously gorgeous bitter chocolate infused with gold, it can be applied dry or with a dampened brush for stronger intensity, and used for shading, highlighting and lining the eyes. It’s incredibly longwearing as well (the party was a good test!) and didn’t crease or smudge all night long. I love the fact that it kept its “true” colour all night, and Francois Nars has said of the product line, “I always push our chemists at NARS to saturate my eyeshadows with pigment so that the result on your eye is the same as you see in the compact,” and he wasn’t kidding!
An absolute beauty, I’m so in love with this shade!
