NARS Nouveau Monde was from the Spring 2011 collection. It has a gleaming lilac on one side and a rich earthy olive shimmer on the other. They both look rather flat and dimensionless in the brand new pan picture, but trust me they are not.

They are not super finely milled, but the large particle size is what gives it a different kind of sparkle from many other eyeshadows that I own. Though it may not be apparent form the pictures, the sparkle in the lilac half is quite silvery and cool. Pigmentation is decent, due to that hardened pan texture that a lot of NARS shadows have these days.
I used it in a FOTD today.
I think that I over blended a bit, and lost some of that fabulous sparkle. I'll have to watch out for that next time. Plus I think that in the future, I'll try the olive side as the main lid shade instead of vice versa. It's such a rich color, I want it to have a chance to really shine.
