Paramaribo is a metallic, brassy, cool-toned yellow-gold with a metallic cool-toned bronze. Both shades are beautiful and apply with heavy pigmentation. Just like my other NARS duos, it wears really well and over my favorite NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, the colors can stay intact for 10 hours. I would definitely recommend grabbing this as it is limited edition.

Described as a “lavender gray”, Lhasa is a cool-toned taupish gray with a hint of purple and fine shimmer. The color is perfect for every day and will make a great smoky eye when paired with a darker color. It also goes on smoothly with a satin finish and again, stays on very well without creasing and fading.

Swatch time and a quick eye look! Here I am wearing the left shade of Paramaribo on eyelid, Lhasa on crease and the right shade of Paramaribo on lower eye. See the complete breakdown of the look here.
