I am still trying to work out the kinks in applying the matte purple shade of this duo. Don't get me wrong, I love this duo but why is it that I feel a slight tug and uneven application of this shade on the first try? Even on top of a primer I noticed that there's a spot on my lid that you can tell needs to be blended out with a fluffy brush. Once that finally gets diffused I can relax and go on about making up the rest of my face. I will say that I like this purple over the Daphne single that was released earlier this fall. The purple in the Mesuline duo has red in it whereas Daphne leaned more on the blue-purple side. I didn't even buy it just based on poor reviews.
There isn't any glitter, thankfully, so it I didn't notice any fall-out spills underneath my eyes or temples. I mention this for those of you familiar with the Hula Hula palette. Lovely colors but man, does it leave you looking like a pixie doing a walk of shame if you don't clean up after applying!
Here's a simply eye I did this morning. I am loving purple shadows right now. I'm thinking of incorporating a taupe with this duo sometime this week.
A review of a past NARS makeover event will be coming soon!
