Deep wonderful gold!
Nars’ Etrusque was a much coveted item for me around the holiday season. It is from their Holiday collection 2010 and it is a rich, shimmering gold shadow.
I’ve been wearing this color non stop since I got it. At first I thought it was going to be much darker from the previous gold shadows I have owned. You can see how I would think that from how dark it looks in the packaging. I was surprised to see that when I applied it with a plain, dry brush it was lighter than I had predicted. Not too light that you couldn’t tell it was gold of course. Honestly, I’m not sure if this is good or bad I think I would’ve liked it the same whether it was light gold or dark gold.

Pretty Eye Shadows!
My eyes have a few different colors in them. I classify them as hazel, however I could see someone saying, “oh, they are brown.” But then I can hear myself yelling in my head, “They aren’t just BROWN. There’s amber and green in there too!” Which there are, and it seems obvious when you’re looking me in the eye, but you know, some people aren’t perceptive or pay attention to things like that.
This being said, I like to wear a lot of different eye colors. And most of the time, I like to keep them on the lighter side (and I prefer shimmers to matte shadows) but I still play with color. I wear pink and purple often and even red to play up the yellow / amber in my eye (Coppering by MAC is awesome for this). I also like light blues and darker blues (Clinique Peacock is one of my favorites).
Anyway, back to Benefit…these shadows aren’t super unique colors, but as mentioned I love a pink shadow and have been wanting to try some Benefit eye shadows, so I got these two during their online sale for half price to give them a go!
