New from the NARS Fall 2013 Color Collection, we have Bavaria Single Eyeshadow.

NARS Bavaria Single Eyeshadow review
NARS Bavaria Single Eyeshadow

Described as a “deep sea blue”, Bavaria is a medium bluish teal with shimmer. It is the only bright color in the Fall collection and with a non-matte finish. It reminds me of a gorgeous mermaid teal and is a very pretty color for the summer actually. MAC Surreal is lighter with more gold. MAC Aquadisiac is more green and less shimmery.

The shadow applied with decent pigmentation (the best out of the four in the collection) and a metallic finish, but did require a few layers to build up the intensity. The texture was also slightly stiff and not the easiest to blend out. The wear, though, came in pretty good at 7-8 hours with no fading or creasing.
