Dogon Eye of the Day - Friday, 5/27

I can't really say much more about the latest Summer duo from NARS, Dogon that already hasn't been said.

I took a picture of this late afternoon - the sun was starting to set so it was pretty bright in my livingroom. Sorry if this looks a bit flat but take a look at it swatched on my arm:

You can see the duochrome goodness of the metallic taupe shade - it has some green in it. There is also a minimal shimmer to the black shade.

Other shades used:
NARS Nepal in crease
NARS Alhambra on browbone
MAC Feline Kohl Power Eye pencil
Chanel Inimitable Intense - Black

I felt like the metallic taupe took some extra work to get on to my lid, I must have patted about three layers with a dense shadow brush (MAC #239) but the black shade went on easily. I layered this on top of my TFSI primer. I can't wait to experiment more with this duo. I am curious to see how the NARS cream shadow in Mousson will look layered on top of it.

Yes, I love it. I am glad I finally picked it up!

Other products used:

Cheeks: NARS Multiple - South Beach
             NARS Orgasm blush (layered on top of South Beach)

Lips: Estee Lauder Pure Color - #77 Cafe Chic/NARS Albatross lipgloss

  1. omg the multiple in south beach is one of my favourites. I raved obsessively about it here

  2. Oh yay! I'm glad you finally got Dogon. I love your picture--- somehow the combination of lighting and makeup looks so pretty (along with your earrings =)

  3. Hey Procrastinator - yes, I have been using it daily. I love it too - so glad I finally found the proper way to use it.

    Hey Dovey,
    Crap, I forgot that you featured lovely pics of Dogon, too. I would have included your post as well. My bad! I am so glad you are a NARS fanatic like me!
