NARS Strada Eye Shadow

A few months ago I went on a real NARS kick, and I bought a few of their single eye shadows and duo eye shadows. I just realized that I haven't reviewed any of them yet, so today I bring you NARS' Strada!

NARS Eye Shadow Packaging
I love NARS' packaging before it gets all dirty!

NARS Strada Eye Shadow

Sephora describes Strada as "amethyst infused with gold", which is pretty accurate. When I first saw this shade in person, I just knew that I had to have it. I absolutely love the way that this shadow swatches, the colour is just gorgeous!

The formulation of this shadow is beautiful, it's creamy, pigmented, and not at all chalky. I really like pairing this with NARS' Lhasa, which is a medium deep grey shade. Strada works wonderfully as either an all over the lid shade, or in the crease. This shadow stays on my lids all day, but it does start to fade a bit after about 8 hours. I do sometimes experience a little bit of fall out with the shimmers in this shadow, but it's nothing major.

If you're new to NARS eye shadows, and want something that's not a neutral shade, but that's still very wearable, I would highly recommend trying out Strada. What are your favourite eye shadow shades from NARS?

NARS Single Eye Shadows are $28 CAD for 2.2g, making them a bit of a splurge item. If you still have any gift cards left over from Christmas, definitely check out the NARS section of Sephora!

  2. Looks gorgeous! I have been really tempted by Lhasa, but I haven't been ready to splurge on it. When I do, I may have to get this one, too :)

    1. Thanks!
      Lhasa is beautiful, and Strada pairs perfectly with it. They should really be in a duo together :)
