NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Rated R Review

Smeared on my hand without primer.

One of my favorite NARS Eyeshadow Duos is Rate R. I love the green in it so much! It is a bright acid green with tons of gold shimmer. I love to pair it with eggplant purples and chocolate browns. It resembles MAC Eyeshadow in Bitter, but I prefer the ones in the NARS compact. The blue in this compact isn’t that bad. It’s a royal blue with silver shimmer. As you can see, it turns a bit green on my complexion. I have to use a primer underneath to make the shade look more true to the pan.

NARS Rated R Eyeshadow

These two colors do wear nicely together but I do prefer to keep them separate. I find that they “fade” or look “dull” when worn together.

This duo retails for $36 at Nordstrom and Sephora.
