I was sent this beautiful eyeshadow by NARS called Malacca ($25). It’s a new-ish release that immediately reminded me of other brown/green/blue duochromes such as MAC Club, Urban Decay Lounge, MAC Blue Brown Pigment, MAC Deep Blue Green Pigment, Makeup Geek Insomnia Pigment, etc. Luckily, it’s not more of the same. Malacca actually has a cooler base that leans more towards taupe than it does towards a warm brown. So if you’ve found MAC’s Club, and others like it, to be too red for your liking then I suggest taking a look at Malacca.

I adore how this eye makeup turned out! I really like how teal duochromes look with my skintone/eye color. I can’t wait to pair up Malacca with Make Up For Ever’s Holodiam Powder in 302 which is a trio-chrome (made up word) pigment I featured before on my blog.
Disclaimer: The Sleek Contour Kit was a gift from a blog swap, NARS Malacca was sent to me by the company as a gift (not in exchange of a review or compensation), the two * Mary Kay products were PR samples for past sponsored posts. Everything else was purchased by me.
