Nars cream eyeshadow in Grand Bleu - review & swatches

Nars cream eyeshadow in Grand Bleu
Nars cream eyeshadow isn't exactly the thing I've always wanted. Before X-mas Nars offered free delivery  for orders over €40 do I was looking for something to top up my Mandchourie eyeshadow order. I'm mad about cream eyeshadows and this blue looked nice so I picked it.

Grand Bleu is a very light kind of blue with silvery sheen. It's much lighter when swatched than in the pan. Unfortunately the formula of this eyeshadow is quite dated. It's the non-drying, very creamy formula, which doesn't need to be tightly sealed to remain fresh. The trouble with that formula is that it's fairly greasy and tends to melt, crease and fade. It needs to be set with powder eyeshadow to survive a couple of hours on my lids. It isn't also particularly useful as an eyeshadow base cause it's far too greasy. I use it on my bottom lash line when I need a bit of bright, fresh colour. A couple of years earlier I would have been extatic about this eyeshadow, but now , with so many marvellous cream eyeshadows on the market, ranging from high-end to drugstore brands this one is not worth the money or effort.
