NARS Makeup Your Mind Express Yourself Eye Kit

May 9, 2011

NARS has recently released a new book “Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself”. Before the arrival of this book I have already got my hands on this exciting new makeup kit by NARS – “Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself Eye Kit” that goes with this book. All items are designed for you to re-create the looks featured in the book.  It contains:

– A new eyeshadow Palette!!

– Larger Than Life Volumising Mascara in Full Size

– Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base in Medium Size

– Eye makeup remover in Medium Size


This is what the box looks like:


It also contains a little booklet that shows you how to use the enclosed eyeshadow palette.


Nars eyeshadow palettes to me are irresistible – they are just divine, compact and easy to use. Having this new addition to my existing Nars collection is a joy – even though I have already owned most of these shades in other packages.

A closer look at the eyeshadow:




As usual all eyeshadows in the palette have the same texture and amazing pigmentation as the individual or duo Nars eyeshadows.  This palette contains some of my all time favorite Nars neutral shades –  Abyssinia (a matte beige) ; Galapagos (an intense brown with gold flecks)  and Brumes II (a shimmery blue grey).  Strada and Fuji are outside of my comfort zone, but they look gorgeous pairing with the neutral shades . Silk Road has always been a let down for me, I was hoping this one would have a better texture than the original one. Unfortunately it is still chalky and contains chunky golden flecks…love the color though.


On me: I felt a little more daring today so I wore

– Abyssinia as a base and brow highlight,

– Strada all over my eye lids

– Brumes II on the outer v corner

– Galapagos along my lower lash line



I will report back the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base soon. I have heard so many good things about it!

The NARS eyeshadow primer is by far the best.

Silk Road is a duo I wear often and I like to play it up with the Brumes Duo for night. One thing I’ve found is the Silk Road II shade is best applied wet so the color is smooth and the gold flecks stick (dry it is a bit of a mess). My general go to in using the duo is Goddess Soft touch shadow pencil as a base with Silk Road II applied wet over it on the lid. Silk Road one I use crease to brow. I hope that helps you with the shade. Wet application really makes all the difference and a cream base helps as well and no fallout issues.

Thanks for the tip! It has never occurred to me applying silk road wet…I will definitely try it out! Hopefully it work for me too cos it’s such as gorgeous shade.
