How foolish I was to think that the silver was ordinary! Melusine's shimmery side is as FAR from ordinary as you can possibly get. First off, it's not your typical silver shade- it's more of a soft pewter with a slight lavender-pink sheen. This opalescent effect is just so unbelievably beautiful (it'd be like if MAC Seedy Pearl had a baby with Bobbi Brown Chrome Pewter) and subtle.

so the lighting is a bit on the warm side.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this 2010 Holiday Collection duo, NARS presents us with a unique shade, and both sides of the duo are quite pigmented. This duo is $32, but if you act fast- you can still order it from the Sephora Friends & Family 20% off sale (Code is FF2010).
I did a EOTD with it the other day, but it mostly shows off the purple side, not so much the pewter (click here if you missed it).
