Usually I wander into TK Maxx only to find a multitude of bright green or purple Nars products that have been touched by every Tom, Dick or Harry that go into the store. I'm forever jealous of the people who manage to find some real gems that are A. unused and B. wearable, so I was quite surprised to say the least when I found these soft touch shadow pencils for only £5.99.

I picked up two shades - Iraklion; a soft metallic taupe and Skorpios; a rich metallic copper.  Both have the classic, sleek, black packaging Nars offer complete with a section on the end with the colour, so you know what it is without having to take the lid off. 

These pencils are extremely creamy and easy to blend, I draw all over the lid then blend it out using a synthetic brush. My only nag is that they stay kind of sticky, so they need to be set using a powder shadow if you're not a fan of that feeling. However, the tackiness doesn't have any effect on the longevity - they last a good 5 hours without a primer before they begin to settle into the crease.

After a quick browse of the Nars website, I have discovered these are actually apart of their current line and are still available to buy full price - £18.50. So if you happen to come across them in a TK Maxx for £5.99 - SNAP THEM UP!
