St Paul de Vence is a romantic little village in the South of France. It is known for its medieval style with stone buildings dating to the 15th and 16th centuries, its beautiful precisely paved lanes and its thriving art galleries.
NARS captured the village romance in the NARS St Paul de Vence eyeshadow duo with its pink tones. The paler shade is a light to mid tone shimmery rose gold and the darker is a crease-perfect matte pinky brown. It's the perfect pair for this season's craze for all things rose gold and will carry well to the summer when peach becomes the cult favourite.
I've compared this duo with MAC eyeshadows from my collection and here are a few swatches and my notes:
The rose gold shade in the duo - MAC Jest eyeshadow is paler and has more pink and less peach, MAC Expensive Pink eyeshadow is darker, more orange with a gold duochrome.
The matte brown shade - MAC Soft Brown is more peach and lighter, MAC Texture eyeshadow has more yellow undertones.
While the colours from this eyeshadow duo are not unique, it is very pretty with wonderful easy-to-use textures. The eyeshadows are easy to apply with the fingers and of course even better with brush-guided applications. The size of this palette is perfect for your handbag for on the go wear. NARS St Paul de Vence eyeshadow duo is not a must have but I'm glad to have picked it up to update my collection for this season and the next to come.
