Nars Lola Lola and Night Fever Eyeshadows
I’m all about simplicity on most days, so I love a good eyeshadow single that can make me look quickly polished without the help of any additional eyeshadows.
Nars Lola Lola Eyeshadow is described as a neutral brown with shimmer. It looks copper/brick toned in the pan, but once swatched, the color is more muted and neutral. It definitely has some soft reddish tones (no yellow-orange) mixed with silvery/gray pigments, so it doesn’t lean warm.
It’s actually more unique than it appears. The slight shimmer/frost really pulls this shade together and makes it a really pretty, elegant shade. It’s a nice shade for any eye color, but I’d think it would look especially nice on blue and green or hazel eyes.
The eyeshadow itself is super soft and pigmented and blends like a dream. I’ve been wearing it alone on my lids and lower lash line for a soft daytime eye. I like that it’s not super intense and has a softness about it so it’s a shade that I can wear every day.
Nars Night Fever Eyeshadow on the other hand is a super dark and intense shade that I thought would be a great eyeliner shade. Night Fever is described as a black with red pearls. Pretty Simple. It’s a super dark, matte black filled with fine red shimmers.
It’s one of those shimmers that disappears when you wipe it, so to get the shimmer to show up, you have to pat the eyeshadow on as opposed to sweeping it. If you sweep it on, you’ll only get a matte black. It doesn’t transfer well when applied dry, but applied on top of a base (preferably a sticky one), it really helps the shimmers stick. They also show up when applied wet, but regardless, if you want the shimmer to stick, you need a creamy base and you have to dab it on.
To see these two shades in action, check my previous post where I’m wearing Lola Lola on the lid and lower lash line and Night Fever on the outer corners.
