@ MarieMary: I thought the same thing when I saw the trio for the first time. I thought it looked like a warmer version of Douce France.lol
By the way, the apricot part is pretty orange based on the swatch. It doesn't look like apricot at all!! lol
@ Miss QQ: I already use many NARS eyeshadows because I have lots of them. It turns out sometimes their matte eyeshadows drive me crazy.:S
Some of the matte eyeshadows are awesome, e.g. Coconut grove or Bali.
But some of them are not good because they look chalky or are usually discolored as time goes on. (maybe 10 mins after wearing them.)
For example, I have Violetta duo eyeshadow and the right side is really pretty and gorgeous, but the left side is horrible. Whenever I put the left side, I look like a corpse.:S It has to be muted-laverdar, but it turns to be chalky gray. Personally, I think being discolored is the worst problem! My friend and I had a same problem when I used D. gorgeous and Kuala Lumpur too!
Sometimes, Nars matte eyeshadow are hard to blend (as MarieMary said.;)), but I don't think it's a big problem if you have some makeip skills.:)
I think the best NARS eyeshadow is the one which has velvet texture such as Nepal, Ashes to ashes, Cyprus or Habenera (duo) minty one. I really love them because they aren't chalky, easy to blend and discolored. Plus they're really pigmented and long-lasting.:)
