NARS Eye Paint in Mozambique

nars2

NARS Eye Paints ($25) come in ten shades and can be used as either eyeliner or eye shadow, in “an innovative silky, weightless gel” formula. I have to admit that I wondered how or if these would be different than other cream shadows on the market, like MAC Fluidlines and Paint Pots, or even my trusty Bobbi Brown cream eyeliner.

The Eye Paints come in ten different shades, ranging from neutrals to vibrant colors. If you have hazel eyes, the color line up is a dream! I chose Mozambique from the line up because it’s unlike anything I have in terms of cream/gel bases, and I just love the shade. It’s a rich olive color and it really brings out the gold and green flecks in my eyes. I’ve been wearing this as a base and an eyeliner, and it does not budge all day long!

The texture of this eye paint is easy to work with. It blends easily and you can smudge it out without having to worry about it drying too quickly. It stays all day in my waterline and doesn’t irritate my eyes. Since I wear contacts, this is a concern of mine.

While applying, it doesn’t get cakey or crumble. It isn’t going to do that little “roll into a ball and smudge everywhere” thing that sometimes happens when you have too much on your brush or are applying it awkwardly. The color doesn’t need to be built up. It is intense on the first swipe.

There are really no cons to this product- it is $25, which is steep, but if you want something that works and that you will use daily, I believe this is a fair price for the performance you are getting. I’ve worn this as a base, alone, and as an eyeliner, and I love it in all capacities!
