Nars Jolie Poupee eyeshadow duo
Closeup of the product:
Pigmentation is decent, similar to MAC eyeshadows. They are also soft and blendable, even the matte shade blends easily. The shade on the left is a matte bluish purple, while the shade on the right is a shimmery purpley plum.
I tried comparing Jolie Poupee to the some of the purples in my collection:
The matte colour on the left is a lot more unique than I thought. The closest match for it when swatched was ELF's Periwinkle eyeshadow (but ELF has a bluer tone, while Nars has a purplish tone). The shimmery purple was easier. In the pan it looks like MAC Nocturnelle, but when swatched it is more similar to Milani Shock, but still not an exact match.
Quick EOTD with Jolie Poupee duo:
Sorry about the weird concealer job, haha. I was experimenting with a new concealer palette at the same time and didn't realise it was going to show up so much when taking the pics on Foliage mode.
Matte shade on the inner 2/3 of the lid, then the shimmery purple over the outer half of the lid. I added some Maybelline eyeshadow in Make a Move Mauve to highlight the inner corners but its not very obvious.
I think its worth buying if you don't already have similar colours. Also I tried to pack on more colour to show up on camera. but you can definitely use a lighter hand if you prefer a sheerer look.
