Getting Electric Blue with Nars Outremer Eyeshadow

I’ve previously blogged about Nars Outremer Eyeshadow and mentioned how it wasn’t as bright as I thought it would be. However, I’ve now tried it with a dampened brush and it certainly is electric! Here’s how it looked:

I do love the colour and it’s definitely less chalky with a damp brush, but I still find it hard to apply and think I need some more practice! Sometimes I worry that I look like a 5 year old let loose on the makeup counter!

Electric Blue with Nars Outremer Eyeshadow

I thought the days of wearing bright colours on my eyelids had long gone, but this striking blue colour from Nars caught my eye which made me impulse buy, for a steep £16.50…

The texture is fairly chalky and I found the eyeshadow quite hard to apply evenly- but that could just be my poor skills!

I used Mac’s prep + prime eye primer and still managed to make the eyeshadow come out rather patchy. My hooded eyes probably don’t help!

The colour didn’t come out as bright as I thought it would be, which is a good thing, because it makes outremer wearable for both days and nights. However, I haven’t tried applying this eyeshadow with a damp brush yet, but it’s something I will definitely try soon to see how a deeper colour turns out.

Have you sailed with Nars’ Outremer? How did you find it?
