NARS Mekong and Galapagos Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

I have been seeing a bunch of NARS eyeshadow swatches lately (or maybe I've been searching for them to convince myself to buy a few more) and I have completely fallen in love with Galapagos, which is a rich bronze with beautiful golden flecks, not chunks of glitter but a very mature sparkle. And Mekong, which is a beautiful espresso color infused with the same lovely shimmer in gold. So of course after seeing these I had to make a trip to Sephora to pick these beauties up!

They can both be paired together to create a beautiful, dramatic smokey eye without using black. I personally love creating a smokey eye using brown, especially using dark espresso colors like Mekong in the outer V to really make it pop followed by lining my lash line with Urban Decay's Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon! I love many other NARS products, and I can officially say I can add these two to that long list as well.

I hope this helped any one teetering on whether or not to purchase these! They are beautiful eyeshadows and can be used to create a gorgeous neutral eye, or be vamped up to create a seductive smokey eye! Stay gorgeous.

XOXO,
