NARS Cream & Powder Eyeshadow Duo Swatches

I’ve seen a lot of people express interest in these, so I figured I should hit the counter and swatch them all! For the most part, the quality is fabulous and the shadows are smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend. I noted the few exceptions at the bottom of this post.

NARS Eyeshadow Duos cost $32 and are available worldwide. Most are powder shadows, but Burn It Blue, Camargue, Madagascar, and Summer Time are all cream shadows.


Kilimanjaro, Iceland, Bellissima, All About Eve, Madagascar
Summer Time, Camargue, Burn It Blue, Madrague, Tokyo


Indian Summer, Key Largo, Windstar, Portobello, Star Sailor
Rated R, Silk Road, Elsa, Alhambra, Kalahari


Kuala Lampur, Isolde, Earth Angel, Persepolis, Violetta
Underworld, Habanera, Egea, Mediteranee, Sugarland


India Song, Pandora, Jolie Poupee, Brumes, Cleo
Taiga, Scorching Sun, Charade, Cordura, Paris


Caravaggio, Demon Lover, South Pacific, Misfit, Surabaya
Brousse, Blade Runner, Eurydice

Strangely, the Demon Lover shadow that was so useless in my Pleasures of Paris palette is amazing in its original duo form. Out of all 48 duos, I would say only Taiga, Portobello, and the left side of India Song were questionable.

    Thank-you so much for this post, I feel like I've been waiting forever to see all the duos swatched! Especially since some are not available in Canada (i.e. Iceland, Kilimanjaro). Lovely post, thanks so much!
