NARS “Demon Lover” Duo Swatches and Review

Self-Purchased

I’d never tried NARS shadow duos before but had been eyeing a few of them. Sephora had the Demon Love duo (one of the duos that I’d been eyeing) on sale for $15 a few weeks ago so I snagged it.

These shades are incredibly beautiful in the pan, however I found them to be incredibly dry and a little hard. The blue shadow is harder to pick up with a brush than the purple but both are a little lacking in pigmentation but are able to be built up with enough work (as seen below).

The outer swatches are 3-4 swipes with my finger. The inner swatches took a lot of work to build up. These are over Urban Decay’s primer. I did have better pigmentation over a base of Nyx Milk pencil but not enough to make this product a real win as the blue lost its iridescence and looked muted and grayish and the purple looked so dark you’d think I’d applied it over a black base.

This duo is no longer for sale on Sephora’s website. I’m guessing the $15 sale price was to sell off the last of their stock. While I’m generally disappointed in this product I consider myself pretty darn lucky I got it on sale. If I’d gotten it full price I’d have taken it back for sure. As it stands I haven’t decided yet.
