NARS Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow Review, Swatches and Photos

Named after a village in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region of southeastern France, NARS Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow from the Summer 2012 Collection brings us an unexpected warm-cool take on a neutral palette.

NARS Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow Review

On the left is a shimmery icy silver color, in the middle is a light peachy beige with silver sparkles and on the right is a warm-toned apricot with matte finish.

The shimmery colors are great on the eyelid, as highlighters and apply smooth and buttery. The apricot shade is slightly sheerer and requires a bit of layering to build up the color, but it does add depth and is perfect for rocking the Tangerine Tango trend this year. With a primer like my favorite NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base underneath, the shadows also last all day without creasing or fading.

Overall, NARS Ramatuelle is nice trio that is great for creating a natural, airy look but at this price, I don’t think it is a must-have.
