Nars Fall 2015: Nars Velvet Shadow Sticks

September 6, 2015

Nars Velvet Shadow Sticks ($28) are new, creamy eyeshadow pencils that can be worn either as an eyeshadow or smudged liner. The colors apply with buttery smoothness, and they set for long-term wear. I’ve been using a few of these colors blended together, and they’ve been giving my lovely, all-day wear.

I am assuming that these Nars Velvet Shadow Sticks are newly formulated replacements of the former Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencils, which are listed under the “discontinued favorites” on Nars’ website.  I know that the Soft Touch Pencils had less-than-stellar reviews.

I’ve found that these new Nars Velvet Shadow Sticks have the longevity that the former soft touch pencil liners seemed to lack.

Nars Velvet Shadows are available at Nars online, Nordstrom, Sephora,  Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York.


The colors show here are:

  • Aigle Noir – Black infused with gold shimmer
  • Glénan – Navy
  • Goddess – Pink Champagne
  • Oaxaca – Quartz (shimmery taupe)
  • Sukhothai – Shimmering Peacock
  • Flibuste – Black
  • Reykjavik – Grey
