Cinematic Eyeshadow is a new formula that debuted in the limited edition NARS Guy Bourdin Color Collection for Holiday 2013.

NARS Guy Bourdin Cinematic Eyeshadows Reviews

The shadow touts a “velvety soft texture that glides on smoothly for high-impact color with a metallic finish”. There are a total of 5 bold and fun colors available:

Wishful Thinking is a bright electric blue.
Cambodia is a burnt orange red.
Rage is a pink-based violet.
Bad Behavior is a cool-toned steel.
Mississippi Mermaid is a neutral champagne.

The shadows applied with great pigmentation and a metallic finish that reminded me of MAC pigments and Yaby Pearl Paint Eyeshadows. However, the texture was slightly crumbly and so fragile that 3 of them shattered completely on their way to me. I ended up having to salvage them with alcohol (hence the ugly, uneven patches you see).

The wear though, was good. With my favorite NARS Primer underneath, the shadows survived over 8 hours without creasing or fading the slightest bit. You can also use them wet for a foiling effect.

  1. In nearly every blog I read that received these, they were broken as well!

    • Yup I noticed that too… it’s a shame though since the colors are pretty and super pigmented.
