NARS Tartar Eye Paint

NARS Tartar Eye Paint Just Might Be the Purrrfect Dark Purple

NARS Tartar Eye Paint, $25

Black cat liner goes with everrrrrything. 🙂 I love it for that.

So classic… So timeless…


But, uh, sometimes I just feel like switching things up. After all, woman (and makeup-loving dudes) cannot live on black liner alone.

That’s when NARS Eye Paint in Tartar ($25) comes in handy.


I love wearing this shimmery dark purple (it’s almost black) when I do cat eyes and feel like using something beyond basic black.

Oh, and get this: it has these tiny flecks of multi-colored micro-glitter that BAM! — suddenly appear of of nowhere when you buff it with a brush.

I like to apply one layer on my lids with a flat eyeshadow brush, then buff it out with a domed blending brush like the MAC 217.

It’s a quick, easy route to a pretty, purple smokey eye, and that extra micro-glitter gives it a little kick.

    I’m trying to limit my Eye Paint purchases… I have Iskandar, and Snake Eyes got an edge over the others I like. But you’ve just put Tartar back on the map. Gah!
