NARS Paramaribo Duo Eyeshadow Swatches, Review and EOTD - Spring 2012

For Spring 2012 NARS has given us a break from pastels and created Paramaribo Duo Eyeshadow.  While it's fun to see the bright shades, it's a bit of a relief to get something a little different that is still new to the season.






Paramaribo ($34.00) has two metallic shades of brass and bronze.  The brass side swatches extremely golden but shows hints of green when applied to the eye.  Almost like a tarnished brass.  The bronze size flashes the brass under the brown making it a fun shade to use alone or with another coordinating color.

I love this duo.  The pigment is great and the shades are easy to use.  With more than half of NARS duos the average user couldn't wear both shades comfortably together.  That is not the case with Paramaribo.  They look great together, and you could mix it up several different ways.  I had fun playing with this one, and hope you like the eye look I put together!

For this EOTD I applied UDPP then the brass shade all over the lid and put the bronze in the crease.  I lined with Chanel Brun Le Crayon Yeux and smudged some more of the bronze side of the duo over top of that.  To finish I used Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara.
