It's no secret that I absolutely love TK Maxx and the pure gems that you can find in store. I've come away with some real steals before, particularly from the make-up and beauty section.
My latest finding is from NARS a make-up brand that just calls out my name through it's sleek and super satisfying packaging. When I saw the eyeshadow duo box sitting on the shelf, I didn't really care which colours were inside, for £10 instead of the usual £25 I knew that I had to have it.
Welcome to the family 'EGEA.'
It turns out that I was treated to a duo featuring a iridescent almost pearl finish pale green and lilac that NARS describes as 'frosted sage and smokey lilac.' A great pairing for light eyes and pale skin, I have been wearing the colours ever since I first picked up the box, with the green shade on the lower lash-line and the lilac shade as a wash all over the lid...I have to say they make me look awake in the morning.
I team the shades with black liner in the tightline/waterline and a subtle cat flick liner as you can see in the picture above.The colour pay off is good, but not intense as the shades are of a highlight / pearly finish rather than an opaque, solid shade. The shades are quite powdery when applied with a soft, shadow brush but thankfully as they are not dark in pigment it doesn't cause too much of an issue.
I hope to see more NARS products popping up in TK MAXX, as a high end make-up brand it is great for us budget beauty gals to be given a chance to try something new.
Which is your favourite NARS eyeshadow duo?
