Cheap Alert! This NARS shadow pencil retails for only $10. And really, that is the only reason I bought it. But, to my delight, turns out this pencil is really nice! The color shown is Corcovado, described as a 24 karat gold.
There is something so chic about NARS packaging. It is so simple, yet somehow it exudes style.
The texture is soft and it applies well. Here you can see it applied to my inner corner.
On the eye this pencil looks much more bronze than the swatch below. Goes to show that how you use this and what you blend it with can change it. You can use it straight, like in swatch below, and get a bright yellow gold. Or, you can use it like I did above blended with mulch brown and get a more bronzed look.
This packs a punch, right? Check out a close up of the pencil.
This shadow pencil is also offered in a green color, called celebrate. It is described as a parrot green. This color looked interesting, but the gold seemed more wearable.
Overall, my review for this shadow pencil is great! This wears all day and didn’t crease. You can use it multiple ways to get different color pay-offs. And, like any shadow stick, application is incredibly simple.
