I have loved taupe and olive shadows for a long time now. I find that sometimes I get bored of the classic brown shades that I tend to use on my eyes and want something a bit different. Olive is such a beautiful shade of shadow when you want something a bit different, but not too colorful (and not purple :P).

From the first time I saw this duo I thought “oooh thats pretty”. The colors got me so excited. I tend to pull this out most in the fall, but I really do need to wear it more. Its a beautiful duo of complimentary shades. Both a well pigmented, easy to blend and, long wearing. All the things I love about NARS shadows. Plus that taupe is just stunning. It has a bit of a gold warmth to it, which is a bit unique and very beautiful.

I find this duo is great to pair with other shadows, but I also love the look I get from just using the two together. Its a bit grungy and a very beautiful fall smokey eye. Its very gypsy/earthy/sultry. I kind of love it. Its just perfect when I am in the mood for something a bit different (but still everyday appropriate) on my eyes.
