It took a long, long time for me to write down my thoughts on this Bateau Ivre Eyeshadow Duo. It’s not that I didn’t like it (I do!). It’s one of several products that I got last year but I never had a chance to review. I just remembered about it because I was looking at my makeup collection looking for Spring colors for inspiration, and I came across it. For that reason, this is very much in season right now.
You can find it on the NARSCosmetics.com site, where they state this was the
“Best Overall Eyeshadow” 2011 InStyle “Best Beauty Buys”
These matte eyesadows have great pigmentation, and both colors are very easy to blend. They last about 8 hours on my lids with an eyeshadow primer, so I would definitely recommend that if you need all day wear. If you’re looking for intense color, you can definitely try them with a damp brush and that should bring out some additional color. This variation gives them a really wide range of uses, from a subtle, everyday color boost to a more intense color splash. If you’re in the market for a matte, interesting looking pair of blue eyeshadows, give this NARS Bateau Ivew Eyeshadow Duo a try.
