Nars 413 BLKR Single Eyeshadow


Hi dolls,

To my dismay (i.e. frustration), I no longer have access to the NARS U.S website. Therefore, I had to cash in one of my beauty chips and ask the kind, and marvelous Ms. Amy from cafemakeup.com to acquire this precious single shadow for me. So, thanks to her generosity and overall awesomeness, I was able to get my mitts on the NARS 413 BLKR eyeshadow. I truly don't no where to begin in expressing my gratitude and admiration towards Amy and her blog. Amy, I appreciate all that you've done for me, and I look forward to continuing to build our beauty alliance :D


413 BLKR eyeshadow is named after the NARS flagship store on 413 Bleecker Street in New York City.


413 BLKR is a lovely lavender-dove grey that leans a bit silver and has a subtle shimmer.

 From left to right: 413 BLKR, Lhasa. 

The swatches above show the differences between the two shadows; 413 BLKR is cooler in tone, and is more silver than gray. Whereas, Lhasa is a smidgen warmer (a deeper purple) and leans more towards taupe.

Amy also included some extra Chanel goodies in the package :O

At first, I was a bit hesitant in purchasing 413 BLKR, believing it would be too similar to Lhasa. But, after doing a swatch comparison, these two shadows are different enough to warrant owning them both :) I happy to add 413 BLKR to my collection of NARS eye shadow singles and I would highly recommend it to anyone :)

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
