There was an extended period of time before the NARS Hollywoodland Soft Touch Eyeshadow was released to the public that I was utterly obsessed with the product. It popped up in every press release regarding makeup looks for various Hollywood starlets, mocking me with its perfection. Despite the fact that I literally have 5 or 6 champagne eyeshadows sitting unused in my collection, I knew that I simply NEEDED THIS EYESHADOW. As soon as it was released in the US, I ordered it online (thanks to handy parcel forwarding) and eagerly awaited it’s arrival. It arrived. I loved it.
I already own one of the Soft Touch Eyeshadow pencils so I knew what the quality would be like, and was pleased that Hollywoodland kept up the same standard. The eyeshadow is very smooth to apply and wears well, (though I tend to only use eyeshadow pencils along the edges of my eye like a liner rather than an all over lid colour, so I’m not entirely sure how it goes with the crease factor). This is a really beautiful highlighter colour, and I’m really excited to start wearing it again this spring/summer. The NARS Hollywoodland Soft Touch Eyeshadow retails for $58 AUD and can be purchased from Mecca Cosmetica (or for $24 USD from Kiss & Makeup NY if you’re feeling thrifty).
