NARS Corcovado Soft Touch Shadow Pencil

NARS’ Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado

Published in: Daily Beauty

NARS Corcovado Soft Touch Shadow Pencil

The new NARS Corcovado Soft Touch Shadow Pencil ($24), from the spring 2013 collection

A shimmery gold cream eyeshadow that you can wear by itself or as a base for powder eyeshadows.

I dig the color and how it lights up my eyes, but after five minutes it creases like WHOA. It wears a little better if I use only a tiny bit and set it with a powder eyeshadow.


Wish NARS could find a way for it to last longer, because the color’s flattering on warm skin.

    Too bad about the shadow. I love those earrings.

  2. Agata says:

    That’s a bummer cause the color looks pretty. I LOVE your earrings, where are they from?

  3. Jennifer L says:

    I love gold shadow, especially in the summer. I tend to stay away from creams in general because they always crease on me. I guess my eyelids are greaseballs 🙂

  4. This color really opens up your eyes… Do you have lighting at the back of your head – overall, this photo of yours have this ethereal vibe going on 😉

  5. Ruchita says:

    Too bad about the creasing b/c that’s a pretty color. Love the earrings!

  6. Monica P says:

    Oh, that’s too bad. I have oily skin so this would probably slide right off.

    It’s a beautiful color, and looks great on you! It’s a shame it creases though. I love the NYX jumbo pencils but they crease like crazy….both Nars and NYX need to take a leaf outta UD’s book on jumbo pencils. UD’s do not budge all day!

    What a bummer about the formula, it looks great. Love a gold shadow, it’s usually my go-to if I’m wearing eye color. Wonder if it would do better with a primer.

  9. Kim says:

    That is a really pretty color on you. Shame about the creasing! I never wear my UD El Dorado because I’ve realized gold isn’t my color. 🙂 It takes away from the green, instead of bringing it out, for some reason. I’ll bet it works on you, though!

    It is such a pretty shade.

  11. Whyyyy have they still not reformulated?!! 🙁

    Shame it doesn’t wear better and stay longer–it is a fabulous shade. Thanks for reviewing the product.

    I hear that often about the Soft Touch Shadow Pencils. I have a bronze one from the Beach Lover set and I used it as eyeliner and it worked alright. Pity they don’t work as eyeshadows though!
