If you haven’t already tried it, NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow is simply amazing.  The formula can be applied wet or dry and delivers highly pigmented, smooth color.  Cressida is a shimmering cobalt that makes a perfect accent for your eye makeup look.  Kari is a muted mauve that is so versatile!  I like to use it as a lid shade.  Retail price is $29 per compact.

This glossy, warm apricot shade is a new favorite of mine.  It works as a “better than neutral” color, perfect to pair with basically any shade without disappearing on the lips.  Retail price is $26 per Lip Gloss.

Wine Sinner is a long-time favorite shade of mine, a deep creamy burgundy that simply feels fantastic on the lips.  Ice Queen is a barely there golden shimmer that is great to layer over a darker shade, or wear alone.

Retail price for the set is $45 (a savings of $3 from buying each shade individually).
