This black eye shadow is from NARS and the shade is called 'Night Breed'.
This is pretty expensive for an eye shadow but as soon as I saw it I fell in love! I was on the lookout for a black shadow, and this stood out from all the other blacks made by other brands as it has a little shimmer to it, which can be seen in the picture.
It is highly pigmented and and a little goes a long way. If you really want a black that 'pops', then use a dampened brush to apply and the black colour it leaves behind is amazing.
Here are some swatches:
As you can see, there is a big difference between the wet and dry colour; I like the fact that it's so versatile!
I have used this loads of times and there is hardly a dent out of the box! You really do get a lot for your money. I like the fact that it isn't 'crumbly' like some shadows, it is quite tough actually. The glitter bits don't fall down your face after a few hours wear either, so it wins points on that. I like shimmery products but I like them on my eyes, not smeared across half of my face.
It is great for an all-over black look or to darken up other colours. Obviously, its awesome for the smokey eye look but I have even blended it with bright colours, such as yellow, and it still works great.
I also use it as an eyeliner and it does a really good job!
I would repurchase this and I would like to try out some of the other shades in the range.
Star rating: 4/5
It loses a star for being £17, but apart from that I wouldn't fault it.
