The NARS Powerfall Collection is filled with neutral hues, except for these three NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows. Three new shades have been added to the permanent Dual-Intensity collection, and they each add a statement to an otherwise natural look.

In case you’ve forgotten how incredible these shadows are, let me remind you.  These incredibly vivid shadows apply smoothly and evenly, can be applied wet or dry!

NARS Powerfall Reds Fall 2016

Swatched above for your viewing pleasure from left to right: NARS Consuming Red is a deep wine red that is part of the permanent color lineup and described as “Bordeaux” by the brand.  NARS Infatuated Red is a limited edition true bright red that the brand describes as “Garnet”.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils have been a long-time favorite of mine since I first used one in 2008.  The soft satiny finish is very modern, and the chunky pencil format is easy to apply perfectly.  The shades are high-pigment, and feel so emollient when applied!

How To Build A Concealer Wardrobe

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogAs someone who has immersed themselves in the world of beauty, I feel like I am able to predict many trends before they become mainstream. One I really didn’t expect, however, was that concealer would suddenly be so sexy. Why has this happened? It’s all about contouring and cooking. I can’t think of anyone not curious about these techniques, and how they can magically transform your appearance. While I’m not big on contouring, I’ve owned multiple concealers for different purposes over the years.  Allow me to introduce you to some new ones!
