There’s a new(ish) eyeshadow in town and it’s taking the world by storm. Meet the NARS Hardwired eyeshadow. These are pressed pigment shades, with glitter. Some gorgeous shades and very pretty on the eyes. I would get these fast, because they seem to be limited edition. And you can see why you need them below !
I initially bought two shades that caught my eye, the extremely gorgeous Outer Limits, which I missed out on when it released last time, and Earthshine. Outer Limits is a stunning peachy pink with glitter, and Earthshine is a duochrome of pinky lilac glitter. I was so blown away by these two that I also got Pygar, a gold with a green shift.
These retails for 25$ for 0.07oz. Which is quite expensive, but if you like shimmery glitter eyeshadow, you will love these. The texture of these eyeshadows are different across board. Outer Limits and Earthshine are quite glitter heavy, where as Pygar is a more pressed pigment with smaller micro glitter. All gorgeous on the eyes.
It is quite difficult to show how beautiful these look, and I was unable to capture the multidimensional glitter, but these swatches are the best I could do. Also, my arm is about 4 shades darker than my face, and I am generally an NC35/40.
I apply these with my fingers, as the heavy glitter might be difficult to pick up with a brush. They look quite multi dimensional on the eyes, giving a very highlighted look on the eyelids. Only downside is that since they are made of glitter, there is some fallout even when applying with your fingers. But once applied, they stay on for the whole day.
Bottom line: I LOVE THESE ! I am a glitter addict and I cannot be happier that Nars has released these again, I plan on adding Stud next to my collection. Currently, I see that Outer Limits and Earthshine are out of stock at Sephora, but I would check back as they seem to restock often. You can find them here on Sephora.
Have you tried these ? XO
