The Duo Everybody Needs!




I've been yammering on about the NARS Cordura Duo since I got it back in August, last year. You can see how well loved it is...
Honestly speaking, I don't have much to say about it other than its FRIKKIN' AWESOME. Firstly, its everything you will need in a little easy-to-pop-in-your-bag kind of compact. It contains a warm shimmery brown gold that looks gorgeous on its own just blended around the edges... and then it has the darker colour. A cool grey-black with gold glitter that doesn't have fallout, has excellent colour pay off, and blends like a dream. You can see how it looks on/works together in the pictures above. (I'm also wearing blush - Tarte's Blissful - I'm loving it!)
As far as the shadows themselves go.. they are buttery soft and a dream to use.
Now, these duo's are expensive. I think they cost USD 34 (INR 1840 approx) But they contain 2 grams of eyeshadow in each pan (4 grams in total) - whereas a typical MAC eyeshadow has 1.5 grams per pan (If you bought 2 MAC eyeshadows (Pans - 750 x 2 = 1500 for 3 grams + a palette to put it in) you still end up paying less for a NARS Duo.

If you have access to this, buy it. You know you need it.
IF you don't, you could always stalk Strawberrynet like I do! Kalahari... you will be mine soon.
