Nars Eye Shadow in Mekong - Review...

Yay, I have finally dipped my toes in the world of Nars eye shadows! I have been so obsessed with my Mac palette that I never really thought about trying Nars until I spotted this shade which is right up my street! My fella actually bought me this for our 2 year Anniversary (Best boyfriend award goes to...), and I know he did buy it through Asos so he could get student discount on it! 
Anyway, it's a really deep dark plumy brown with gold shimmer running through it, I have nothing else like this. It's a really buttery powder eye shadow, and a little bit really goes a long way and I would definitely recommend a primer because without one it really doesn't last on me at all, but with Urban Decay's Primer Potion it lasts all day then, I think it just needs something to cling to. Some of the gold shimmer is a little lost in application but it's still really beautiful. The only bad point I can think of is that if you're not gentle with it, it can leave a lot of fall down which can ruin your face make up, so I've just been leaving my concealer til afterwards  just in case. 
The pigmentation and lasting power is amazing and I will be definitely checking out some more of their shades, also it's probably going to last me forever because of the amount you use each time!
