The palette has a trio of neutral shades to smoke out your eye as little or as much as you want to. With three shades and the term smokey maybe you don't think you can do much, but you can do a day smoke (Madrague I), happy hour smoke (Bali) and night out smoke (Mekong) just by changing your lid color. The black liner works for all!

This set also includes travel sized versions of Via Veneto Larger Than Life Eyeliner and Wide Contour Brush #43. In the eye look way below I used the brush for Bali in the crease, but found it's also nice for packing on the pigment to the lid (if you don't mind a bit of fall-out). I love the NARS LTL Eyeliners, they're always so smooth and easy to apply, but last all day.

The swatches below are (L-R) Madrague I (which blends in nicely with my skin tone), Bali, Mekong and Via Veneto.

For my EOTD I figured why not go as smokey as I wanna be? I primed the eye with NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow base and then applied Via Veneto liner over the top lash line. Mekong eyeshadow is all over the lid. Bali is in the crease and blended up with Madrague I at the inner corners and also to to blend out the crease and highlight. The mascara is Urban Decay Perversion.
