Eyeshadow battle: help me choose!

Hi all,

 

I'm having the biggest dilemma of haul time. (Anyone? I thought it was funny :smileyvery-happy:)

 

I am trying to decide between the Nars Kauai duo (after which I've been lusting since its release) and the KVD Esperanza palette (see parenthetical statement above). Pretty palette for $36 or dynamic duo for $35? I really don't want to shell out for both, since I don't NEED either.

 

Thoughts, my beloved BBFFs?

Will you swatch the Kauai duo for BT please?  I read a little further down that you picked that one.  I have it in my cart right now!

Sure will, clarks! :smileyhappy: I hope Temptalia's are true to color, because hers are unbelievably pigmented and gorgeous!

For quality I would go for the Nars (you keep posting things that make me want to take out my wallet =_= ) palette 

 

For variety I would go for KVD....How large is your eyeshadow collection? I find a lot of the colors dupable.

 

Have you seen Temptalia's reviews for the palettes (if so sorry, I'm too lazy to read all of the previous posts)?

 

Good Luck

Proper, thank you!! I went for the Nars. I did see Temptalia's reviews and I'll admit that they did sway me--that's where I first saw the Nars, and where I heard that the stunning mint in the KVD was "chalky, and hard to work with." In the end, I think I'll be happier with the Nars. :smileyhappy:

 I swear by Temptalia's views to ensure my money is well spent! ^_^

 

Have fun with your Nars palette!

I have the palette, and I adore it!  I do want the duo, but I just got Narsissist so I can't justify $35 for two shades.

Re: Eyeshadow battle: help me choose!

Oh, you're set on Nars for a while then :smileyvery-happy:

Once you start buying NARS shadows, it sadly does not stop lol

MWAH HAHA! That is what happens to Nars Addicts, they see colors and just stare, only to splurge.

NARS!!! I can't believe I would be willing to pay that much for just 2 shadows but it is gorgeous. It will definitely be mine ASAP. Good luck with your decision. :smileyhappy:
