NARS Single Cream Eyeshadow Compact, Petula
I have not used cream eye shadows very often, but this particular color had me intrigued. It looked so fresh and springy! The texture of the shadow is smooth and I applied with both fingers and on occasion a cream eye shadow brush, which gave me a slightly more precise application of the color. On my skin this reads as a light bronze with a touch of peach. Very flattering especially with a dark brown eyeliner and shadow applied over it for a smoky look. The wear was very good (even better with a makeup primer) and the color stayed true during the day. This is a fantastic NARS eye product, and a great color to add to your eye shadow wardrobe. Petula will work best up to about a Jada Pinkett coloring.
I stood around in Sephora once for about two hours wandering between counters and trying on eyeshadows on the back of my hand, looking for something smooth and pretty and that would last... Now, I'm not usually a fan of cream eyeshadow, since they tend to crease in my eyes rather than stay smooth. This shadow is different, it is shimmery and really pretty and I like that it's smooth and doesn't get into the creases of my eyelids!
