Swatches: NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Caravaggio

A while ago, I posted a FOTD using NARS Caravaggio, an eyeshadow duo I'd been lusting after for quite some time.  Here are a few more swatches and on-eye close-ups.

A beautiful combination of vivid pink and rich, mid-purple, this duo is incredibly flattering on greenish eyes.  For my money though, as different as the two colours look in the pan, on the eye the difference is more subtle, with the colours looking more complementary and less contrasting.

As usual, the eyeshadow is buttery soft and well pigmented - but I still find NARS shadows a little less blendable than some other high end shadows.  

Swatched, you can see that while the pink shade has a lovely sheen to it, the purple is the standout colour with a gorgeous, almost metallic shine.  Simply gorgeous.  

NARS eyeshadow duos cost £23.50, making them a definite luxury treat.  I picked Caravaggio up from ASOS - but you'll find the range in store at SpaceNK and high end department stores too.
