I made a random trip to the mall on Saturday to pick something for my friend's b-day (which was on Saturday, I'm a procrastinator!). I've been regretting for a bit now not picking up Birds n Berries e/s from MAC Liberty of London collection. So I stopped by a counter in this mall and found it in stock there luckily.

I'm glad I picked this up, it looks like my type of colour. I have no idea I waited so long to buy it. It looks nothing like Deep Blue Green as you can see below.

And then the Nars fiend that I've become I stopped by their counter to get some more duos. I really like the duos I got before. I think the pigmentation is great and I don't mind the price tag as you get two e/s for $38CAD. You would spend the same amount on MAC but you get more products with Nars. I was gonna just get one but I couldn't decide between the two I wanted so I got both. I got Star Sailor and South Pacific.

Star Sailor is described on the Nars website as a heather gold and antique bronze duo and I think the description is right on. The gold side is a bit like MAC's Gorgeous Gold but not as as green and the bronze side reminds me of MAC's Museum Bronze p/m (LE) but not as dark. The texture of both sides is lovely. I'm recently digging these earth tone shades so this was a happy addition to my stash.

South Pacific is described on the Nars website as a shimmering blue turquoise and dark aquamarine duo. The blue turquoise is a bit like MAC's Tilt but more pigmented. The aquamarine side is in between MAC's Mutiny and Teal p/m. Again both sides are very pigmented and apply smoothly. I have a weakness for the ocean colours and as the summer is approaching, I thought this duo would be a nice start.
