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.
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
