The Makeup | NARS 'Isolde' Duo

I don't think I've ever written a post purely about an eyeshadow duo, but I am so in love with this one. I was gifted this for Christmas last year from my dad, I did pick it out for him though, and it has currently become my go-to eye makeup everyday. I've been reaching for this duo over any of my other eyeshadows and I have a whole box designated for eye shadows!

NARS is definitely becoming one of my favourite brands, despite not owning many of their products, the ones that I do own I adore. The pigmentation and longevity beat any other eyeshadows that I own, also the consistency of the powders are incredible. I am so impressed with the quality of these two powders, the colour is so strong and you could apply this without using a primer and the colour will still pop. This is a bit pricey, but I feel that it's so worth it and due to it being a duo you don't have to sit and wonder what eyeshadows to mix and match together. I've been wearing this daily for almost two months now and there's still so much product left in the pan, this is because the pigmentation is so good, and the powder is so finely milled, I barely have to push/swirl my brush in to the product before applying. They are also extremely blendable and makes you the blending boss. 

This duo is ultimately bronze/gold shades but are very orange based. That in itself can seem scary, as you wouldn't usually go for an orange based gold/bronze, but the orange can really emphasise the colour of your eyes. I find that this duo is really flattering for my makeup look and can be used for a everyday look as well as a night one. I usually wear the shadows together, putting the darker colour in the crease. I do prefer warm toned eyeshadows and this duo is within that scale. 

I highly recommend getting your hands on any NARS eyeshadows, individual or duo. I reckon buying them as a duo would be better value for money, but after recieving this one, I am so tempted to buy the whole lot! I love them so much!
