NARS x Steven Klein Dead of Summer Dual-Intensity Eye Shadow Palette

Four highly pigmented and rich shadows — three of which are new and limited edition — play and pair perfectly together to create a soft, smoldering look when used dry, or a bolder, intense look when used wet. Studly, a golden brightening shade, and Stag Film, a rose-bronze, blend into a modern, glam holiday look with the deep-slate Blackmail and Subra, an ultra-flattering blackened burgundy. Bonus: this must-have collector’s palette from two of the most talented creative also includes a mini Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto, a classic black.
