NARS Velvet Shadow Stick | Review

Sunday, 26 March 2017


I've wanted to try an eyeshadow stick for a while now and have had my eyes on the By Terry Ombré Blackstars, however, I was recently at a NARS counter and came across the NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks which I thought looked really pretty and was keen to try. I bought the shade Oaxaca as I thought it was quite a versatile shade that I could wear with quite a few make up looks. 

What do I think of it? 

Consistency
I really like how creamy this is. Often with cream shadows, I worry that they're going to be too drying or 'crack' throughout the day. However, this definitely isn't the case with this, it's also super easy to blend so there's no harsh lines once you've applied it. 

Longevity 
I've worn this quite a few times for work and I must admit, I've been pretty impressed with how long it lasts. I normally wear a primer under eyeshadow, but don't with this and it lasts so well.

Packaging
As with all NARS packaging, I love how simplistic this is. I really like the minimalist look of the packaging and it's super easy to carry around with you.

Price 
At £21 the NARS Velvet Shadow Stick isn't the cheapest eyeshadow stick in the world. KIKO's Less is Better Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks are £6.90 which are a really good dupe and for a much cheaper price, however, having not tried them, I'm not sure how long they last.

Would I recommend the NARS Velvet Shadow Stick? 
I'm really pleased with the NARS Velvet Shadow Stick. It's so easy to apply and blend and is a gorgeous colour. My only criticism is that it's not as shimmery as I first thought, which is probably my fault for picking the wrong shade. However, if you're looking for a mid range eyeshadow stick that makes applying eye make up 10x quicker and provides an effective look, I really recommend the NARS Velvet Shadow Stick.

  1. I might be old schooled, but I will always prefer pressed eyeshadows, than eyeshadows in stick, but I have to admit, this sounds cool.

  3. I've always wanted to try Nars shadows as they seem such good quality but the price for two single shadows is pretty steep. This does look lovely however, might try the Kiko ones!

    1. Yes I totally know what you mean! It may be worth trying out the KIKO ones first to see if you like this type of product before spending loads of money on the NARS one xx

  5. I have never tried eyeshadow in stick nor NARS and I don't know if i'd be willing to pay £21. It's is quite expensive. However, if I know it is a good investment, yeah. IT looks like it is so I may give it a go! Thanks for sharing! xx Corinne
