First Impressions and Face Of The Day Using Nars Taiga

Taiga is a duo I have wanted for a long time and a bad day at work resulted in it finally coming home with me. I was really looking forward to using it as the colours are gorgeous but I have to say I was a bit disappointed. The duo is a light champagne paired with a pewter/green with gold sparkle. The champagne shade hardly showed up on me, I had to apply it wet to get any colour payoff at all. The other shade is decently pigmented. I haven't really experienced this with any other Nars eyeshadows. I am going to experiment a bit more with layering it and using different bases to see if I can get it to work. But anyway here is today's face.

You can see in the close up that even used wet the champagne shade doesn't really show up!
