Nars Steven Klein Single Eyeshadows 1

Every year, NARS releases a small capsule collection of extraordinary single eyeshadows that should not be missed. This year’s NARS Steven Klein collection is no exception:

  • Stud:  an extraordinary shimmering taupe with a touch of metal.
  • Never Too Late: a beautiful complex soft satin green
  • Mortal: A warm shimmering white

I was particularly impressed with Stud and Never Too Late, these are both worthy of the label “high end luxury” colors. The taupe Stud really surprised me–I had thought I’d seen every possible variation of shimmering taupes. Not so!  There is something edgy about Stud that is incredible.

Nars Steven Klein Stud, Mortal and Never Too Late ($25 each) are available at NARS online, Nordstrom, Lord and TaylorNet-a-Porter, Bloomingdales, Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus.

You do need one more taupe in your life–NARS Stud. Both Stud and Mortal have a similar shimmery-metal texture. Stud’s a clear winner–it’s amazing. Mortal is too, however some readers might approach brighter, pigmented whites a little differently than they do a taupe. Both are highly reflective, have excellent pigmentation and apply with buttery softness with excellent blendabilty.

Never Too Late is lovely. NARS seems to excel at creating unusual neutrals. Sometimes I think of colors like Never Too Late as a “neutral with a twist”–that type of color looks so good with winter colors. You can never get enough of these colors.
