I was browsing the NARS aisle at SEPHORA and totally fell in love with NARS GALAPAGOS eyeshadow from the EXOTICA SUMMER 2008 COLLECTION. Galapagos is a chocolate/ bronze color infused with gold pigments that looks just amaaazing on women of color or just about anybody looking for a tasty bronze look. I tried it on my bare eyelid (yes NARS shadow are so pigmented you don’t even need a base…) and loved it!  I will create a bronze look once I get out of my work week-induced stupor… 😉

In the mean time, make sure you get one…along with AMBER LIGHTS from MAC…I can’t wait to show you what I come up with!!!


NARS was created by Francois Nars, a french make-up artist in 1994. Nars is an “island-lover” and name most of his products after the most beautiful places he visited in the world: Tahiti, Marrakech, Bora Bora etc. He also owns an island in the French Polynesia and gets most of his inspiration from spending some time there… “Motu Tane – Project Nars – is one of the 118 islands of French Polynesia scattered like confetti over the turquoise waters of the South Pacific” (telegraph.co.uk)

Wow! You learn something new every day…and people say beautinimous (no…it’s not a real word…) interests are superficial…:-)

    I love NARS products. I read his make-up book and wished he featured more women of color.
    I also love his blushes( Exhibit A, Orgasm anyone?) unfortunately right now they’re splurge products because if i decide to wear him exclusively, i might as well take out a loan…
    I can’t wait to see the look too! I own Amber lights so it will be interesting to see how you use it…
    take care:)

    Dang it!!! I just purchased this shadow. When swatched on my hand, it’s drool worthy GORGEOUS. But, when I get to the eye, it’s a drab brown. Now pretty shimmer or ANYTHING! I’m pissed! What gives? What can I do about that?

    Thanks in Advance!

    That is my favorite NARS shadow.
    I also use it as a highlight.
