Nars Alhambra Eyeshadow Duo







I told myself that the next time Asos were doing a pretty decent discount code that I would buy my first Nars product, seems fair right? So as soon as Asos were doing 20% off for 24 hours only, I jumped at the chance to splurge a little. 

As much as I'd love to own the ever coveted 'Orgasm' blush or 'Laguna' bronzer, I felt like I'd already seen them a million times over and went for something a little less talked about. Originally I'd wanted the eyeshadow duo in 'Kalahari' but as it was sold out I opted for 'Alhambra'.

Alhambra contains two eyeshadows, one a metallic rose mist and the other a golden champagne, as described by Nars. They are really gorgeous shimmery colours that compliment each other well when put together.

The shadows are pigmented and really easy to work with. The only downside I would say is that they blend into my skintone rather too well that I feel like these colours would look gorgeous when I have a tan as they would stand out a bit more. That said I love using this duo when I want a more subtle eye look but still want something a little shimmery and special!

These sell for £23.50 on Asos but with the discount I got it for £18.80, still expensive but definitely worth it! Don't tell my bank balance but...I think I'm gonna need some more of these babies!

Have you tried any Nars eyeshadows? What did you think?
