NARS Spring 2012: Paramaribo Eyeshadow Duo

Here we are at the end of my NARS Spring collection coverage with NARS Paramaribo Eyeshadow Duo, which consists of a dirty gold and a brown-toned olive. 

Paramaribo was a blind purchase (as is the rest of my acquisitions, really) and had I made my way to a counter beforehand I probably would not have bought it. Not that the shadows are not good. This is one of the better duos from NARS and one of the easiest to swatch (seriously. One light dip of the finger), and though the texture is laudable and color insanely pigmented, it's just not something I'd wear very often. I don't know what possessed me in the first place to acquire it, considering that I am very wary of anything that might accentuate the yellow of my skintone and that left shade looked awfully dangerous.

I was right, the palette is not something I would wear often. I can't think of a suitable outfit to pair them with. But goodness me do I love those colors.

NARS Paramaribo Eyeshadow Duo retails for $34 and is available at major department stores and Sephora. I purchased mine from


  1. Green is definitely your color. Love the way it looks on brown eyes. I think this is one of my favorite looks of yours.

  2. I'm really happy that I got it (still waiting for it to arrive in my mail though)! It looks great on you, so don't be paranoid! Also, gold goes with EVERYTHING. Like EVERYTHING. If you wear black at all for example it'll do!

  3. This is actually the most flattering color I have seen on you yet. You should definitely wear it.

  4. Beautiful colors! I think it looks really pretty on you.

  5. Stunning eye+lip combo, looks fantastic on you, very elegant yet spring-like.

  6. I cannot think of a suitable outfit to wear this with either, but I don't think I'm going to let it stop me. The colours are just too pretty.

  7. Lovely! I love my Parmaribo palette!

  8. It looks lovely on you!
    I didn't get this one as I wasn't sure it would suit my blue eyes and gold shadows and me don't get along well. But it's more of a green isn't it. Hmmmmm.....

  9. It is real pretty. Seems like I will have to visit once more Nars counter to get some more stuff :s

  10. Does your site have a contact page? I'm having
    trouble locating it but, I'd like to send you an email.
    I've got some suggestions for your blog you might
    be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look
    forward to seeing it expand over time.
