If you read Running in Heels at all regularly, you’ll be aware that we’re big fans of multi-tasking. Answering the phone while making toast, running while catching up on podcasts – you name it, if it means two or more things for the price of one, we’re in. Obviously this extends to beauty products, which is why we’re quite delighted about the very new and very cool NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows.

Described by Monsieur Nars as “lightweight in texture but rich in pigment – perfect for buildable intensity,” the eyeshadows are essentially completely different depending on whether you use them wet or dry. You’d be forgiven for raising an eyebrow here – can a little water possibly transform a product? Well, yes it can. Used dry, Dual-Intensity creates a sheer, luminous effect; it’s very ‘day’. Dampen your eyeshadow brush and you get an intense, rich wash of colour that you can build up; if you like dramatic, smoky eyes, you’ll absolutely love this product.

Our favourites? Subra is a deep tobacco shade perfect for a sexy evening look, while Dione and Cassiopeia are beautifully brightening and shimmery. For something a little different when it comes to smoky eyes, Giove’s intense navy and Desdemona’s intense purply burgundy look modern yet sensual.

NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow is available to buy online at Space NK.
