[Tips & Tricks] Double or Nothing with Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Callisto & Sycorax...

Science might have proven that moon is not really a pretty sight up close but just like any romantic at heart, I always have soft spot for moon which I believe is a very beautiful creature in it's own way =) Speaking of moon, do you know that all the gorgeous shades from Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow collection were named after moons from other planets? What a way to honor the unsung heroes in our solar system, I don't think they're given enough credit by the way...

Intrigued by the unique names and the dual function claim, I'm more than excited to put the products into test. Since I don't plan to get any new outfit for Raya, having a little makeover with Nars Dual-Instensity Eyeshadow sounds pretty good to me, hihi =P I had a difficult time to choose from the 12 ready to wear shades that range from delicate peach pink to fierce black orchid but at the end, I settled for the contrasting duo, Callisto & Sycorax which compliments each other wonderfully! 

According to Nars Cosmetics, the dual-intensity eyeshadow features a luxuriously smooth transformative texture formula that can go both way; either dry for sheer soft touch of sensual color or wet for a dramatic luminous matte and high shine finish. Sophisticated, riveting and mesmerizing, this eyeshadow not only great on it's own but it's also versatile and perfect for beauty experiments. You can mix and match it with one another or layer it up for different looks and persona.

Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow - Callisto
1.5g [RM102.00]

MY VERDICT: This is by far is the most pigmented eyeshadow that I ever own!!! I love how intense the shade can be when I'm using a damp brush to apply it and how it can also act as a highlighter for the inner eyes and brow-bone area @_@ Described as an icy pink silver shade, Callisto is quite shimmery which used to bother me before but I kind of like how smooth the texture turns out to be. The staying power is quite good too despite my oily eyelids, definitely a 5 stars product for me ^_^

Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow - Sycorax
1.5g [RM102.00]

MY VERDICT: I use black eyeshadow all the time but Sycorax really surprised me with it's multi-dimensional formula which can be transform from matte to high shine finish just from the ways of you applying it! The color last forever too and blends fluidly like a dream, I wish Nars come up with it earlier so I won't have to spend so much money on eyeliners, lol Less sparkly than Callisto, Sycorax makes a fabulous smokey eyes & bad ass eyeliner, what's not to love about that, right?

Since I love both shades very much and have the irresistible urge to add more into my collection, (I've set my eyes on Europa & Andromeda btw) I'll show you how awesome these eyeshadow by sharing with you tutorial for the 2 different eye-do I did for Raya recently using Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Callisto & Sycorax. The first one is the Day Look which is practical for everyday usage and the second one is the Night Look which is a bit dramatic but great for special occasion.

STEP 5 : Complete the eye-do by coating your lashes with black mascara
