NARS Callisto

Press Sample. Affiliate Links.

I am a huge NARS Cosmetics fan.  In case you want to see a list of all my NARS posts just click the link!  When I found out about the fantastic BRAND NEW Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows I leapt for joy.  NARS releases new items all the time but almost never an entirely new formula.  The shade I have for you today is Callisto

“Double-down with the new dual-application formula – apply dry for a sheer, airbrush-like finish with a luminous sheen or apply with a dampened brush for high-impact and intense, opaque color. Twelve ready-to-wear and rebelliously romantic shades transform your look with a riveting range from delicate peach pink to fierce black orchid. This exciting new product is available beginning July 1 at NARS boutiques and on”

NARS Callisto

Callisto is described as an icy, silver pink.  When I am looking at it in the pan I keep trying to call it taupe because of its complexity.  Actually, I think that anytime a color has a silvery sheen running through it I call it taupe…  Yeah…

So I took pictures of it immediately because I was dying to get into this pan and smear it all up!  I just ran my finger over this shade a couple of swipes and I am completely amazed at the HIGH SHINE I got in return.  This is supposed to be Dual-Intensity but with intensity like this dry, I am not sure I will need to apply it wet.  nars callisto swatch

So even though I can tell that this is definitely a silvery pink with mild leanings of tan I still wanted to swatch it next to my favorite taupes of all time.  Just to see how it stacked up.

Compared side by side I see that this one screams pink, but can you see the little glimmer of brown/tan that is shining through?  It is love.  I am in love with NARS Callisto.  Now I just need to get my hands on more of these shades.  I don’t know about you, but I am now off to go and find more shades on their website for me to hoard collect!  And like always, I will have a makeup look coming very soon for you to see!  Again, this are on, Sephora, and other various retailers.

    It’s a beautiful colour. I think it’s quite pink but I love it and would wear it everyday like a taupe.

    I would have thought it was taupe, too, but it’s pink. And metallic! Whoo! Can’t wait to see the look you create with it. Something fierce with a thick, black cat eye, maybe? rowr!

    I love this shade. It’s such a perfect everyday shade, and then if you want to dress it up for nighttime, add a little black for a smokey eye and you’d be good to go!
