Why did I consider getting the NARS Lhasa Eyeshadow?
Seriously, how many taupe eyeshadows can one have on their stash??? One too many!!! Why is it that so many of us are addicted to taupe? Well, the answer is easy. Versatility. There are so many ways one can use a taupe eyeshadow… plus, they look so well on so many skin types and with so many eye colors. That’s why I couldn’t resist this NARS Lhasa eyeshadow that was released as part of the NARS Spring collection.
Where can you get it?
What did I find in the package?
You get a small black compact with a mirror on the lid but there’s no brush. You get a total of 0.07 oz of product.
Time to try them. What did they do for me?
The color of this NARS Lhasa eyeshadow is like gray married purple and they had a baby. It also has a touch of brown in the mix. Depending on what color eyeliner you use, you can sort of get different shades from the Lhasa eyeshadow. For instance, if you pair it with a purple eyeliner, it will bring a sort of lavender color forward. If you use a black eyeliner, the color will appear more neuatral.
I haven’t worn this one without a primer, but with a primer it lasts over 8+ hours on me. I think that’s a great deal, specially because the pigmentation is great on it. When you look at it in the pan, it may seem it has tons of glitter but when applied to the skin, you don’t notice any glitter at all but a rather nice sheen.

What is the Verdict?
Overall this is a solid single eyeshadow. It’s taupe color makes it extremely versatile and attractive for so many skin tones. It can be used as a wash of color over the lid, or it can be built up for an intense smokey look. If you love taupe you will love the NARS Lhasa Eyeshadow!
