NARS Spring 2012: Paramaribo Eye Shadow Duo Review and Swatches

NARS kicks off spring with the beyond gorgeous Paramaribo eye shadow duo. Described as "metallic brass/metallic bronze", Paramaribo delivers intense, rich, metallic colour (LE $39.00 CA/US).

The shade on the left is a rich tarnished brassy gold. Colour payoff is excellent and the texture is buttery and smooth. The right hand shade is a golden khaki brown that is similarly excellent in pigmentation and texture. 

NC 35/40 skin, no flash.

Both shades are interesting as they are both cool versions of "warm" colours (ie: green cast gold and green cast brown). I would be interested to see how these mix with warmer shades like copper or yellow toned golds. 

I love this eye shadow duo. NARS has in the past two years put out some great pairings (Rajasthan, Dogon, Grand Palais etc...), and this is definitely one of them. I think these shades are a natural for any yellow or golden toned skin, but I can see them being very striking on pink toned skins as well. Besides that, I don't have much to say for these except that if they interest you I would run out and grab them!
