NARS Sarah Moon Indes Galantes Eyeshadow Duo Swatch

Sarah Moon Duo Eyeshadow in Indes Galantes ($44 CAD for 4g)
This eyeshadow duo features a shimmery bluish silver and a matte burgundy plum. The silver color has great color payoff and the formula is buttery smooth! The plum shade can look a bit sheer but the color is buildable which makes it easier to blend out, and you can always apply it over a primer to intensify the color.

I like to apply the burgundy plum in the crease and on the outer v with the silver all over the lid. I add a bit of the burgundy color on the lower lashline as well. To complete the look, I suggest to add a transition shade in the crease and a shimmery gold or beige in the inner corner.

Words can't describe how much I love this duo, the colors are perfect together! Such a pretty and unique combo!

Sarah Moon Kohliner in Sichuan ($32 CAD for 0.28g)
Sichuan is a deep chocolate brown with a matte finish. This twist-up pencil has excellent staying power, it doesn't flake off or smudge. It's waterproof as well!

The gel like formula is easy to smudge with a pencil brush, but the first layer looks too sheer for my liking. It looks best if I apply a second layer and very lightly smudge it (with a light hand), to even out the color.

Sarah Moon Blush in Impudique ($38 CAD for 4.8g)
Impudique is a pinky red with coral undertones and a beautiful golden sheen. The finish is shimmery (not glittery) in the pan, but the sheen is subtle on my cheeks. It doesn't accentuate any irregularities in skin texture.

This blush is crazy pigmented, a little bit goes a looooong way! I recommend to apply it with a duo-fibre brush because you can easily end up looking like a clown.

This isn't a color I like to wear in winter (it's quite bright!) but it's very pretty!

  1. Defintely not a winter colour for the blush, but it is gorgeous! I love the swatches of the eye shadows as well - that is something that could be a great autumn/winter duo.

    1. I know right!! I don't understand why it's in that collection, but I'm happy to have it.
