Packaging: 9/10

The NARS Duo Eyeshadow 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.

Quality: 9/10

China Seas includes a sea-foam blue/turquoise with a beautiful, shimmering gold sheen that creates a subtle duo-chromed effect. The blue shade is buttery soft and melts into the skin.

China Seas also includes a dusty eggplant purple with a soft, shimmering finish. The formula for the purple shade isn’t as buttery and doesn’t glide on as well as the blue shade, but still has pretty good pigmentation.

Ease of Use: 9/10

Both of these shades are easy to pack onto the lid and blend out smoothly–the blue shade more than the purple.

Price: 9/10

0.14 ounces (4 grams) of shadow. NARS’ single shadows cost $24.00 and contain half the amount of product, so you are getting a good deal for your money by investing in the Duos.
