I received three palettes of Nars eyeshadow last weekend. Till when I wrote down the names of these three eyeshadows, I just realized they are all named by a city from different country in the world.
- Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur DUO
Left: Iridescent rose-golden
Right: Dark burgundy purple with sparkling gold glitter
Swatches: (without flash)
Swatches in both wet and dry:
The reason I did this swatch is because I read a review of Kuala Lumpur duo previously, she mentioned that the color pay off is not up to her expectation if used dry. But I find this duo is well pigmented and the texture is very soft, maybe it's due to the tfsi (too faced shadow insurance) I used as base before applying the eyeshadow.
Compare with other Nars Duo eyeshadows:
I compared four duos:
- left: Sugarland
- Right: Caravaggio
- Top: Eurydice
- Bottom: Kuala Lumpur
Though they are all in pink or purple tone, but swatched quite different from each other.
Compare with Lunasol Geminate 05 RB
Although they look very different in the pan, but surprisingly they are very similar at swatch. Lunasol 05RB was previously reviewed here.
The right color of Kuala Lumpur is almost the same with the darkest eyeliner color of Lunasol 05 RB. Both are highly pigmented reddish plum with warm brown undertone, while Kuala Lumpur has subtle gold glitter.
Swatches of Tokyo and Bali are coming up...... :D
