Nars Studio 54 Inferno Eyes / Hustle Cheeks Formulas
Nars Studio 54 Inferno Eyeshadow Palette
To start with, the glitter shades are the focus of this palette. There are 5 glitters in the palette (out of 12 shades!) . Furthermore, three of the pressed glitters have chunkier pieces in them. Again, I pretty much purchased Inferno for the one the red glitter shade. However, this shade uses Red #7 in its ingredients. I’m almost certain that Red dye #7 ,cannot be used on the eyes since is isn’t approved by the FDA. So, why do all of these brand keep using ingredients, in their eyeshadows, not approved by the FDA for use on the eyes? Don’t you think that is a bit ridiculous?
Furthermore, ultra-fine blends of shimmer, glitter, and pearl reflect, light for eye-catching looks. Also, the formula is long-wearing and crease resistant.
Nars Studio 54 Hustle Cheek Palette
The Cheek palette has a highlighter and two richly pigmented blushes. These pigments create an opaque coverage. Therefore, even though Nars says you can use the blushes wet, for more impact, or dry, you don’t need to wet them! This is because, dry, they are deep enough. Nars says to use the blushes dry for a shimmering veil. However, they are too opaque for a shimmering veil! So, forgetaboutit! Moreover, the blush formula is dense and firm, almost like a gel/powder hybrid. Therefore, the blushes aren’t powdery. Instead, they melt into your skin when you apply them.
The Nars Studio 54 Inferno Eyes and Hustle Cheeks Shades
Nars Studio 54 Inferno Eyeshadow Shades
Keep On Dancing
To start with, Keep On Dancing, a cream shade, has a satin finish. For one thing, Keep On Dancing is a really sheer shade, that I can barely see. Therefore, the one way I would wear this sheer cream shade is as a shadow base all over my eyes.
Let It Whip
Next, Let It Whip, a beige shade, has a shimmering finish. First, this is almost as sheer as Keep On Dancing. As a result, I would also wear Let It Whip as a shadow base. Although, you could use this beige shimmer as a highlighter, on the inner corners of your eyes. Also, wear it on your brow bones.
Furthermore, Rock Freak, a rust shade, has a matte finish. I love Rock Freak in the crease. Also, wear it on the outer third of your eyelids. Then, use it in the outer corners of your eyes. Even more, you can line your lower lash lines with Rock Freak. And, use a bit on the inner third of your eye lids.
I’m So Excited
In addition, I ‘m So Excited, a bronze shade, has a shimmering finish. Use I’m So Excited on the inner third of your eye lids. Also, you can use this bronze shade in your crease. And, if you want to create a more natural look, you can wear the bronze shade all over your eyelids.

Also, you can wear it in the inner corners of your eyes. Also, if you are creating a neutral eye, wear Do It Right in the center of your eyelids, for a pop of color.

Also, use it as a pop of color in the center of your eyelids. This gold metallic shade is another shade you can use to create a neutral eye.

Turn The Beat Around
Next, Turn The Beat Around, a multi-shade, has a glitter finish. Although, when you apply this shade, it looks silver, with multi-colors in it. I love this color worn on the eyelids. Also, you can wear it in the middle of your eyelids to give your look the most unbelievable disco pop. It is a real WOW shade. Use your finger to apply this multi-shade glitter. And, always use glitter glue first. That way, you won’t have any fallout!!!!
Wishing On A Star
Then, Wishing On A Star, an amethyst shade, has a glitter finish. Again, you need to wear a glitter glue before you apply Wishing On A Star. And, when you apply these chunky glitters, you really should use your fingers for a descent application. Moreover, I love this amethyst glitter used as a topper over another shade. I think it would really enhance any of your neutral looks. to make them pop.
Love And Desire
Finally, Love and Desire, a black shade, has a shimmery finish. I love this dark black shimmer on top of the rust shades. For one thing, the black shimmer really enhances, and changes the rust shades. I love the effect. And, I would use it to line my lower lash lines. And, you can use it alone, or use it on top of another shade. Also, use it to add definition to the outer corners of your eyes. Also, dab some on the outer top of your crease.

Nars Studio 54 Inferno eyes / Hustle Cheeks Last But Not Least…….
First, the red glitter called my name. However, you can wear Inferno as a neutral palette in the day. There are lots of neutral shades in this palette. Although, I love that the shimmers and glitters can also be applied sheer for a luminous effect. Or, layer them for a dramatic shine. This is because, the glitters worn on top of the shadows creates a 3D look. Even more, once the glitters are applied, you can use your fingertip to gently polish them into a crystal-like sheen. It looks very cool!
Furthermore, glitters and sparkles are synonymous with holiday makeup. The Inferno Palette is a party palette. So, it is perfect for the holiday festivities. And, it is even more perfect to usher in the New Year!
Finally, the palette can be worn two ways. First, use some of the softer shades to create neutral, daytime looks. Then, AMP up those looks by patting glitter over the shadows. In this way, you will create Disco Eyes!!!!!
And, the Hustle Blush Palette is the perfect mate to the Inferno palette!
