Missing the bandwagon by five minutes...

I hate when I JUST miss my train or bus by a minute or so. The same is true when it comes to certain permanent items from a cosmetic brand.

Meet NARS single shadow in Nepal:

It scored 4.5 out of 5 lipsticks in Makeup Alley site. That has to say something about this shadow. It's a lovely rose gold that is sheer on the lid but works wonders as a crease. I first found out about this shade the last time I attended a NARS makeup event to try out the Melusine duo for the very first time. My M.A. Mindy applied this above Strada (amethyst infused with gold, shimmer) in my crease and up to my browbone and it was magic. I have yet to return for Strada (it's on my list).

(Nepal used as brow bone highligher)

(And as a crease)
For a sheer color on my skin (NC42) it does work wonders! I really love this as a crease color - especially when I am doing a smoky eye. I like the gradation from dark to a medium tone then to a light highlight shade.

You know you have made a good purchase when you have used it everyday for the past 2 wks. I am so glad this was one of the items I have purchased before the Makeup Ban started!!
