NARS Eye Paint Review

IMG_1248

The new NARS Eye Paint has landed just in time for the Christmas party season (yes, we’re already planning our party attire!). The NARS Eye Paints are long-lasting, heavily pigmented gel eyeliners which can be effortlessly applied to the lash line with an angled brush. These 10 gorgeous shades will compliment any makeup look you want to go for; from a classic black hue to a bold and bright teal shade. When Snake Eyes and Mesopotamia arrived at our desk, we couldn’t wait to put them to the test!

Mesopotamia is a deep brown tone with red undertones, which looks amazing with neutral gold-based eyeshadow. This hue is very warming and looks wonderful with a shimmery copper eye. It can also be worn by itself to give definition to the eye, being a wonderful alternative to the classic black eyeliner.

Snake Eyes takes its name from the cunning reptile and gives a hint of colour to your makeup look without going for anything too bright. The hint of shimmer is very subtle which ensures this eyeliner is extremely wearable, and looks gorgeous by itself with a neutral base.

Both these NARS Eye Paint shades are extremely durable and long-lasting. Once dry, they lasted all day long and didn’t transfer onto the eyelid at all (even if you have oily eyelids or skimped on primer!). Snake Eyes is a very interesting hue, giving the illusion of colour if you’re not brave enough to opt for one of the bolder colours such as the purple Tatar or the teal Solomon Islands, and Mesopotimia is a great alternative for a black eyeliner.

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
