NARS Mahe Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Mahe

NARS Mahe Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, permanent neutral set of hues with three shimmers and one matte, though two of the shimmers were more satin-to-pearl. I think this set of shades, based on pigmentation and texture, will be most suitable for someone tends to use eyeshadow primer or some sort of base as three of the four shades were slightly dusty.

Mahe #1

Mahe #1 is a soft, light brown with muted, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It looked much warmer swatched than it did applied, despite the other shades looking more true-to-pan when swatched. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that made it sheer out a bit when applied on bare skin. The eyeshadow was blendable, though, and seemed to “melt” a little over a few minutes, which helped it appear smoother. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

$19.00/0.04 oz. – $475.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “rich, high-impact color” that is “lightweight” and has “increased blendability.” Like most larger ranges, there are winners and losers, and some of how they perform can be related to the type of finish. The mattes are soft, slightly dusty in the pans (or not at all) with medium to opaque, often buildable, color coverage. The satin and metallics tend to be smoother, more blendable, and more pigmented with less effort; NARS does the these lower shimmer finishes particularly well, which just looks “melted” on the skin as they lay down so smoothly and have a great shine.

Most shades applied better on my lid than swatched on my arm, which has been something seen across NARS’ eyeshadows for years and didn’t change with the recent update to their powder eyeshadow formula. On average, they lasted between seven and nine hours on me without primer. They did apply well over primer and stayed on well for 14 hours with minimal fading.

Worth noting: the updated formula and packaging resulted in a product decrease from 0.07 oz. per pan to 0.04 oz. The single eyeshadows received a more noticeable price drop (from $24 to $19) but the duo eyeshadows could be priced better (from $36 to $35).

Mahe #2

Mahe #2 is a medium taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The consistency was soft, smooth, and not too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, so it applied without sheering out too readily but still blended out nicely along the edges. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before it started to fade on me.

Mahe #3

Mahe #3 is a pale beige with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff that didn’t build up too well without using a primer underneath it or applying it with a dampened brush, which helped to amplify the pigmentation. The texture was soft, lightly dusty, but blendable and easy enough to work with overall. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before it started to fade noticeably on me.

Mahe #4

Mahe #4 is a light, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The texture was more powdery, which resulted in sheerer coverage that did not build up well. If I tried to apply more than one or two layers, it started to result in noticeable fallout. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before showing signs of fading.
