NARS Silent Night Eyeshadow & FOTD



I ordered quite a bit of Christmas presents from Sephora's website this year.  Actually, now that I think about it, I did a lot of e-tailing this year, and it was so easy!  Anyways, at some point in December, Sephora had Nars Silent Night eyeshadow for something like $9, so I picked one up for myself and another for my mom for Christmas. 

Talk about G-O-L-D!  This color is truely a bright, yellow-gold shimmer with a hint of sparkles woven through.  The texture is creamy, but chunky, if that makes sense - I know there were a lot of customers that complained about the texture.  I did find that it didn't apply very consistently over dry skin, but if I used Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy it applied extremely well and had very good coverage and pigmentation.  The sparkles even stayed in place!  Below I did a smokey-gold makeup look with Nars and some of the new Fyrinnae's (which I am working on swatching and posting).
