Packaging: 9/10

The NARS eye shadow packaging is made of NARS’ classic rubberized black plastic and has a lid with a mirror inside that snaps shut. The outside of the packaging is a magnet for powder products, which makes it difficult to keep clean. The box packaging for this collection is special-edition.

Quality: 10/10

Wishful Thinking is a bold, bright shimmering blue. Rage is a vibrant violet with slightly paler violet shimmer. Bad Behaviour a deep shimmering grey-silver. Cambodia is a rich shimmering copper. Mississippi Mermaid is a shimmering cream.

All of the eye shadows have a fantastic formula that not only is soft enough to glide across the skin easily but also gives of rich, opaque pigmentation. It’s the exception when a bright eye shadow is smooth on the skin and doesn’t need layering, but all 5 of the colors in the Guy Bourdin collection fall under this exception.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

This buttery formula packs onto the lid quickly and blends nicely.

Price: 8.5/10

For $24.00 you get 0.07 ounces of shadow. This is the around same amount you get in single shadows from MUFE, Bobbi Brown, and Illamasqua, but at a higher price-point.

  1. The pigmentation is awesome! Looks like there might be a bit of fallout though?
