NARS California | NARS Night Sun
NARS Night Sun is described on the Sephora website as a "bright marigold with gold flecks." To me, it is a yellow-gold with very noticeable glitter. I can see how one can be frustrated with this because of all the fall-out. The key for the glitter to stay put is to use a very sticky base and have it foiled. (please see my eyeshadow application tutorial HERE.) Night Sun isn't as smooth as California, as well as the color payoff. It took 3-4 swipes from my finger to get that much color to show. This color is beautiful when worn during a night out on the town, but may be too much for the daytime (depending on your preferences).
All in all, I'm happy with my purchase. $8 is such a good deal, and I can see myself buying California with its original price because of how beautiful it makes my dark brown eyes look. Night Sun, however, is beautiful but not worth the $23 price tag. $8 is all I would pay for this eyeshadow.
NOTE: These two eyeshadows are still on sale! :) Purchase them HERE.
Until Next Time! :)
