A special buy that has delivered expectation
I got Brousse online and it was a good decision! Nars make such good eyeshadows! Really I'd say try and test the colours in the shop as, obviously, they look slightly different on the skin, and you want to know youre getting a palette that works for you.
Having said that I couldn't decide what colours to go for and the website does give a good idea on how much shimmer is in each one. I don't think you can go that wrong if you're basing it on what colours you normally go for. The formula is really nice to work with, pigmented and buildable. What really worked for me is using the darker colour under the eye slightly with a small detailing brush.
Also, I have tried the really light -white- shades and I never found these were that great... but that might be because of my fair skin tone.

The colours are lovely and blend beautifully. My favourite Nars eyeshadow for sure!

Really can't say enough good things about NARS eyeshadow duo palettes. I am a massive NARS fan anyway, and have been using their products since they were first stocked in Space NK. I have at least 7 of these eyeshadow duo's. If I could I would buy a new one every week!
The range is huge, you can always find a colour to suit you. The colour choice of the two eyeshadows they put together is always interesting, clever and exciting; some times they are very contrasting and others times very tonal. But always work well together.
The pigmentation and quality of the shadow is excellent, very true to the colour once applied. They are very finely milled and it's easy to build and intensify the colour. I often use them wet to create a smudgy eyeliner effect or a very bold look.
I really recommend that you experiment with some of the more bold colours in the range, as they are such fun to wear. Everyone needs these in their lives!
