I ordered quite a bit of Christmas presents from Sephora’s website this year. Actually, now that I think about it, I did a lot of e-tailing this year, and it was so easy! Anyways, at some point in December, Sephora had Nars Silent Night eyeshadow for something like $9, so I picked one up for myself and another for my mom for Christmas.
Talk about G-O-L-D! This color is truely a bright, yellow-gold shimmer with a hint of sparkles woven through. The texture is creamy, but chunky, if that makes sense – I know there were a lot of customers that complained about the texture. I did find that it didn’t apply very consistently over dry skin, but if I used Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy it applied extremely well and had very good coverage and pigmentation. The sparkles even stayed in place! Below I did a smokey-gold makeup look with Nars and some of the new Fyrinnae’s (which I am working on swatching and posting).
