Beautiful colours, but quality varies
I have two eyeshadow duos from Nars and I am satisfied with the purchase. The colours are gorgeous and bold, they go together beautifully. The only issue I have is the fact that one duo has a great smooth texture and pigmentation, while the other, perhaps due to a different type of shimmer in it, is harder to pick up on the brush and just doesn't have nearly the same amount of pigment. It's still pretty and workable, it's just not the same quality. I recommend you try them out in store rather than just from photos on-line.

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!
