When the package arrived I went for Mykonos first, ripped open the box and within the compact I discovered this ...
My immediate thought: how is no one talking about this shadow? It's a brown lover's dream. Mykonos is what I would call a deep champagne, as though a color akin to MAC's All That Glitters was mixed with a soft cocoa brown. The shadow is incredibly easy to wear: complex and deep enough to be worn on its own with a bit of mascara, but light and neutral enough to pair with almost anything else.
I've worn NARS Mykonos very frequently since I purchased the shadow. The cream sets very quickly after application meaning that Mykonos is unexpectedly buildable for a cream product. Though I tend to opt for a sheer wash of color, this shadow makes a stunning and dramatic light smoky eye when applied at full force.

Do you own NARS Mykonos, or any of the brand's other cream shadows? What are your thoughts?
