Current Craves | NARS Eyeshadow Singles

NARS E/S Singles Wishlist
Nooooo! I shout in horror because today I'm starting the spring term of college and I'm not excited. After two months off, would you be so thrilled?! I'm way too comfortable just sitting in bed, sipping on tea, blogging, and creating these wishlists!

From the sleek packaging, to the creative product names and great quality product it's safe to say that I'm a big, big fan of NARS. They may very well be my favorite high end brand, even though I only have a few of their products. I have their four cheek products and one eye shadow duo. I never really ventured into lusting or even giving too much thought to the single eye shadows until I came across this blog that featured a single shadow in an amazing smokey look! Then another blogger blogged about a more neutral shade and I knew I needed to take a closer look at these! On Friday I stopped by a Sephora in the city on my way home and took a look at all the single eye shadows and these are the ones that I am now lusting after!

  • Galapagos | rich bronze with gold flecks 
  • Mekong | espresso infused with gold
  • Night Star | sheer peach with gold pearls
  • Baby Girl | cotton candy pink with gold flecks
I got the descriptions off of Sephora.com because I couldn't accurately describe the different dimensions to each shade I swatched. They're each so unique and in the pan look like shadows you can probably find dupes for in your collection, but when swatched ...  *sigh* they're so pretty! They're also really rich in pigmentation and smooth! I hope to one day own all these colors!

Do any of you have a NARS shadow you love/want? Which one would you choose out of these 4?

  1. NARS shadows are legit perfect. I have Lhasa, it's like a shimmery lavender-gray. I love it for the crease!
    Out of the four you picked I would grab Mekong, it would make those baby blues pop!

    1. Now I want that one too! It's so gorgeous. I've never seen a taupe so purple before! Mekong would def. make baby blues pop and I think they'd make a really smokin smokey eye!

  2. I don't own a single NARS product, how shocking is that? It's not really available anywhere I live and I don't like buying online unless I've seen it in person first. I need to make some purhcases on my next trip! I love, love, love Mekong. Super pretty! :) x

    1. We need to fix that! NARS products do get a lot of positive hype but I still wouldn't feel comfortable just ordering online, I get it! You should at least take a look at some so you can feel more comfortable later on if you want to order online! Mekong is super pretty, I agree! Look up swatches, you'll die :D

  3. Galapagos looks OH so perfect... eff, I want so many NARS products!! Why couldn't I have inherited a large quantity of money at a young age so I could walk into a Sephora and buy anything I wanted... or heck, just buy the whole d*** Sephora. Sighhhhh we can dream!!
    And good luck back at school; cherish the time you're there while you can (it definitely sucks at the time but looking back is quite the glorious experience, trust me!)! :)

    1. Galapagos is like the most perfect gold and the most perfect brown got together and had a baby! It's so gorgeous and it has this gold shimmer in it which is not totally obnoxious but I can imagine just making your eyes POP! Oh yeah, I wish for that every day, or just a job where I could get it for a discount would do at this point, haha!

      Thanks! It's a new school so I'm still trying to get used to classes and sleeping ... I shall miss sleeping! ):

    1. I would recommend starting out with a blush because it's their best products (in my opinion) and it'll get you super excited to try the other products!

    1. Oh, I so agree with that! Everything with NARS products is never too little or too much, just right and I love that!

  9. Those shades look beautiful...NARS quality never ceases to impress me. I only own Lhasa, a taupey lavender gray, but I love it. You should look into the duos too...they are more for your money, I did the calculation ages ago but they are definitely worth it! x

    New reader here, first comment :) I like your blog!

    1. I just looked that color up and it's gorgeous! Second recommendation for this eyeshadow, can't wait to check it out in person! I do have the Mediteranee duo and I love it, but it's one of those duos you can only wear during the summer because of the oranges! :)

      Thanks so much for following and commenting, I really appreciate it :D xx

  10. OMG! I absolutely love Galapagos. It has got to be my favourite brown eyeshadow and that takes a lot considering all the different brown eyeshadows out there! Haha I would definitely get it if I were you!
