|NARS Vevet Shadow Sticks ($28 each) at Sephora|
Making its official launch as part of the NARS Fall 2015 Makeup Collection is the Velvet Shadow Stick - a silky, velvety shadow in a twist-up pencil format and available in a range of rich colors for layering under and over, blending and setting, creating looks that are modern and sophisticated. Cream eyeshadows - sticks as well as the more traditional pots - are making quite a comeback now with almost every fall collection having a version of these. NARS Velvet shadow sticks are similar to the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks in their packaging design but the colors in the NARS version are a lot more geared toward rich, bold makeup looks, though there are a few neutral shades too. Here's a look at the swatches.
