Once upon a time there was a princess that lived high on a hill in the icy alpine tundra. Wrapped in white furs and wool she sat by a window overlooking the valley below from her mountain top lair. Her hair shone in the sunlight a pale gold. Strands of hair glistened in the light like icicles hanging from the eaves above her room. Her hands were fine and small with delicate fingers. They were nimble as the princess was keen on tatting. Her lace creations were so fine and so unique they resembled the snowflakes that fell from the wintry sky above. The icy winds that whipped the castle would screech and howl to most ears, but to the princess they sang a melody so beautiful and precious it made her smile and cry tears of joy. Those tears would freeze as they slid down her porcelain cheeks, for the castle was cold and empty. The princess was banished to the castle in the alpine tundra high in the mountains where only snow and wind made its home.
What was this unspeakable crime that the princess had committed to have her shipped off to such a cold and lonely place?
She was a lone Washington Redskins Football fan in a country of wretched Dallas Cowboy fans. Her only crime was loving the greatest team that football has ever seen, The Washington Redskins. She knew that in two years time that Robert Griffin III (RG3) would be able to get the team to the Superbowl and all those Tony Romo fans would be silenced forever. It wouldn't be the first season that RG3 would play that would get them to the playoffs, nor the second, but by the third season the Washington Redskins would be in the Playoffs and Superbowl bound. She just knew it!
She already had her makeup ready for the trip to the Superbowl (as any good princess should). The focal point being the NARS Vent Glace Eyeshadow Duo from the Fall 2012 collection. This icy eyeshadow concoction would symbolize the prison she was held captive in for so long by those buffoonish Cowboy fans.
The NARS Vent Glace Eyeshadow duo was a beautiful combination of an icy grey and a greyed out frosty green. Imagine the NARS Tiaga eyeshadow duo if it had been left out in the cold to develop a layer of icy frost over it. The gold changes to a, pewter and the green is muted and iced over as well. The colors reminded the princess of the Deer Lichen or Reindeer Moss that thrived in the icy tundra that surrounded her castle prison.
The powders of the NARS Vent Glace duo were neither hard nor overly soft. They applied like a dream but they were slightly less pigmented than her usual NARS eyeshadow duos. She wasn't sure if that was the formula or the colors. She knew that those with darker skin tones than her wan complexion, would find the two frosty shades blending to the point of not being able to detect one from another. But on her pale skin the green really stood out and almost matched the green of her own eyes.
As with all NARS shadows the princess noted that the wear time on the Vent Glace eyeshadow duo was long and there was no creasing or fading when worn with a primer. While this wasn't a duo that she would wear every day, it certainly was one that would hold a special place in her heart. A place right next to her undying love of The Washington Redskins Football Team!
The NARS Vent Glace Eyeshadow duo retails for $34 USD and can be found on narscosmetics.com and Neiman Marcus and soon at other retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora, and Bloomingdales.
