NARS Goddess Swatch, Velvet Shadow Stick

Press SampleThe peachy-pink shade that is Goddess is my latest favorite color.  I’ve been adding this color to my eye makeup looks often lately, and I’m loving the youthful vibe it delivers to basically any shadow look.  Mix it with your favorite neutrals, your beloved vivids, just about anything!  Goddess functions as a neutral that really stands out.

IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Eyeshadow Palette

Press SampleI’ve said it a million times already, but just in case you haven’t heard me before: “MATTE IS BACK!”  Beauty lovers everywhere, even with fully stocked coffers, found themselves looking for a fabulous matte-only palette.  Many palettes offer a balance of matte and other finishes, as the modern look is to generally mix them up.  If you already have all of the shimmer, metallic, and frost a girl could want though you need to check out IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Eyeshadow Palette.  This palette of 14 shadow shades is entirely matte, and features a mix of neutal shades and accent shades for your blending pleasure.  JUST IN CASE, there’s also a “transforming pearl” shadow included, that completely transforms the colors from matte to pearl in a flash!  This palette is, quite simply, awesome.

IT Cosmetics Is Cruelty Free!

IT Cosmetics Is Cruelty Free!

Retail price is $42 for the palette.  What else can I say about IT Cosmetics?  They’re a cruelty free brand, and everything I have sampled from the brand–EVERY SINGLE THING–has been superior product.  This brand has taken the beauty blogging world by storm, and it’s well-deserved.  This extremely jaded consumer is ALWAYS impressed with IT Cosmetics.

Press SampleI’ve decided to do a “deep dive” focus on the NEW NARS Velvet Shadow Stick color lineup for Fall.  Flibuste Velvet Shadow Stick is the inkiest, darkest shade of black with a matte finish.  This isn’t the chalky, dry-looking matte of yesteryear, but rather a finish that’s deep and lush, and blends to the most gorgeous soft smoky appearance you can imagine!

Retail price is $28 for each NARS Velvet Shadow Stick.

The color is intense, and the formula is so blendable it’s easy to create a one-shade 2 minute eye look simply by applying at the upper eye line and blending upward with a brush or even a fingertip!

Of course, there’s more than that!  These retractable sticks are super portable, making them a great choice for someone on the go.  I mean, as much as I love NARS Eye Paint, I can’t see touching that up in the office restroom.  These Velvet Shadow Sticks are much friendlier for mid-day touchups.  The formula is  long-wearing, crease resistant, and simply feel fantastic on the skin!

Retail price is $28 per stick.
