NARS Guayaquil Eyeshadow – Review!

Bronze eyeshadows have my name written all over it. But will I love/hate the red undertone or the formula?

I’m always on the search for new eyeshadows, especially bronze options; how many can a girl have? This specific eyeshadow online looked like quite a red fiery bronze, and that could either go well or make me look like I’ve been punched in the eye, and today that wasn’t the look I was really going for!

When opening, it doesn’t look as fiery as it may have looked online, especially on Net A Porter – much to my delight!

When swatched, it is more on the warm side, which makes it a rich bronze. No huge chunks of glitter, it’s a satin eyeshadow rather than a glitter eyeshadow. So you’ll see thousands of tiny, pearly light-reflecting particles, to give the shadow a more subtle effect but still impactful. Ultra pigmented and easy to blend.

Upon further inspection, I was basically using a magnifying glass to try and see any fallout. This eyeshadow produced NONE!

Note: I applied eyeshadow using finger resulting in no fallout for this specific eyeshadow, but if you’re using a brush, I’d advise to pack it on (stamp motion) and not swipe too much as using that side to side motion with most eyeshadows can result in fallout.

If you want even more payoff, dampen your eyeshadow brush with either a spritz of setting spray or just water, then use.

It lasted for at least 8 hours before slightly fading. But don’t worry, this could definitely last 12 hours+. I won’t tell if you don’t?!

I was happily surprised by this eyeshadow and it’s become one of my favourites already!
