NARS eyeshadow duo swatches-Bysance & Island Fever

Look what I got in the mail yesterday! My NARS eyeshadow duos! Yay!
Okay, enough exclamation points.

A couple posts back I mentioned that Sephora was having a super awesome deal on NARS eyeshadow duos-for $10, well, I snatched those up real quick.
They still have them posted on their website, but they are out of stock. :0(
But, keep checking back, you never know...they might come back.

And the VIB sale is coming up in a couple days ( NOV.10-14) so if it comes back in stock you could save an extra 20%. And of course I'm going to say go through a website like www.ebates.com and earn 4% cash back on your purchase.
* No, I do not recieve any compansation, I just love Ebates-I do have a link you can join under me, but I've never posted it*

Okay, Let the swatching begin.

The lovely packaging.

I love their packaging, but it gets dirty faaast.

Bysance & Island Fever

When I first saw this I thought of LA Lakers. haha.

When I swatched Bysance, I immediatly noticed the shadows were so smooth/creamy/buttery feeling. They just glidded right on my arm. I didn't use a primer. The gold color is really pigmented. The Iris color is pigmented, but you might need to layer it on for a deeper color, if need be.

Island Fever.
So pretty in person.
The grey shade has some pink and silver glitter in it. It's not huge glitter, if you weren't paying attention, you might not even notice it. It's very subtle. It's gorgeous.
They both are very shimmery.

I just did very quick swatches, forgive me, I feel like I'm dying. lol. I've been sick all week. hmmph.
Once again, I didn't use a primer.
This swatch doesn't do this duo any justice. It is gorgeous in person.
The shadows are so silky smooth and glide right on and blend out so effortlessly.

For $10 these duos are a steal, with the discount and cash back....it's robbery. LOL. If you can get your hands on these, I defenatly say go for it.

Did you pick these up? Do you already have them? What do you think?
