Swatch day: Strada e/s by Nars

Hi ladies,

I thought I should show you swatches of this gorgeous eyeshadow.

It's Strada by Nars.

Strada is a gorgeous lavender/lilac colour with millions of gold flecks though it.
The flecks give you a nice shine without having that heavy glitter effect. Perfect.

It can be used dry or wet.
When used wet the flecks blend into the e/s and it gives the lavender colour a gold shine.
When used dry the flecks are more visible but not overpowering.

It's a single e/s and it comes in the tiny pots.

This is what it looks like in the pan:

 Swatches:
I used different flash settings.

The colour pay off is not perfect but it's totally buildable.
It shouldn't put you off.
This shade is quite unique and gorgeous. 

It's one of my top 10 purple eyeshadows for sure.
You can use it on its own and blend it on the crease or you can use it for a retro smoky look.
Love it.

    @Maria: This was my second Nars e/s. They can be a bit addictive because they are super soft and they blend like a dream!<br /><br />@LC: Thank you! Loved your blog. X
