NARS Lhasa single eyeshadow was released sometime in winter/spring, it's now in their permanent line-up. i ordered mine few months ago on hqhair.com (i don't recommend to buy NARS on there at all, last time i ordered Outlaw blush it took them 3 weeks to send out my purchase! >( !!!)
it comes in the typical sturdy mini compact of rubberized plastic and has a small mirror inside. it contains 2.2g and costs £16.50/24€.
Lhasa is a dark silver with a hint of purple and fine silver shimmer, this is at the same time reason why i needed to have it but also reason why i shouldn't buy it - too big a risk getting a dupe of something i already own!
the texture is very "NARS", rather firmly pressed, but very silky. rather sheer, but buildable. i experienced effortless blendability without fall-outs and an excellent staying power in combination with the NARS Pro Prime Eye Primer. the sheerness and pearly shimmer makes this cool toned colour blend in seamlessly with my skintone and this a versatile lid shade to wear alone or combined with different colours, warm or cool-toned, smokey or bright.
fortunately, it's nothing like any dupe-suspect in my eyeshadow drawer since it's more silver than those grurples.
here i applied NARS Lhasa as lid shade and combined it with a bronze burgundy on the outer corner.
for this look it's Lhasa alone, with a metallic golden bronze liner (Urban Decay Honey).
