Nars Ondine


Nars Ondine is a beautiful taupey/purpley/brown with gold shimmer throughout. It's a sort of complex color to describe... at times it hints more plum, at other times it is more brown. The texture is buttery, pigmented, and not too sheer or too opaque...it is very easy to build the color. I love it as a lid color with a deeper purple or dark brown in the crease. It's also perfect in the crease with pretty much any lighter neutral on the lid.



(L-R Satin Taupe, Ondine, Sketch, Purple Haze) You can see here it's not nearly as dark as sketch, not as purple as my UD purple haze, and pulls more plum than my satin taupe.

I would definitely recommend this shadow if you're in the market for a unique taupey plum. Over my mac paint pot (my favorite product to use as an eyeshadow base!) I never experience any fading or creasing. I believe it retails for $23 but the Nars website often puts out coupon codes (recently they had an 18% off orders of $65). It is definitely a splurge, but the quality is very much worth the price tag. The only downside I could see is that it could be an unflattering lid color on extremely pale skintones (possibly look like a bruise). Nevertheless, I think it's a beautiful eyeshadow and one worth checking out!
