Because every eye look needs a bit of warm glimmer, NARS has launched the limited edition Corcovado Soft Touch Shadow Pencil ($24.00) within their Spring 2013 Color Collection.
What the NARS website has to say about the Soft Touch Shadow Pencil:
Soft Touch Shadow Pencils provide easy, portable, long-wearing application. These jumbo sized pencils have versatile functionality to shade the lid, line, or highlight the eye. Smooth, creamy texture delivers a smooth, velvety feel to the eye and make for easy blending and an ideal base for layering with a powder shadow for increased color intensity.
Smooth, creamy, long-wearing formula
Easy and seamless blending
Ideal base for layering with powder eyeshadow to increase color intensity
I’ve found the best way to wear the Soft Touch Shadow Pencils is by applying a primer first (such as NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base or UDPP) and blend the color out, then add a shadow over top. The primer and shadow help the color to hold, and if you blend out the pencil rather than layer it on it won’t crease. It’s a soft formula, so if you just pack it on your lid it’s not going to be okay.
