Get Pixelated with Japonesque

What It Is
: JAPONESQUE Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette ($38 @ and soon - Pixelated Color Eye Shadow is Japonesque Color's most multidimensional formula. Blend these micronized color pigments effortlessly onto outer eye corners for a deep, light-catching, color-shifting gradient. The Pixelated Eye Shadow Palette includes everything you need to conquer the cut crease: three exclusive Pro Basic shades to pair with Pixelated Eye Shadow.

My Take: Since I always use a close-to-my-own-skintone base color on my lids before applying any color, I really like that this has 4 basics inside. And they can be used for contouring if you dab a little of this color and mix it with a little of that!

The Pixelated shades are gor-ge-ous to look at. So how did they perform? Click after the jump to find out!

NARS Fall 2015 Color Collection

14 pieces make up the Fall 2015 Color Collection and making its official launch in it is the Velvet Shadow Stick (8 different shades) shown here in Sukhothai (shimmering peacock) and Glénan (navy) $28.

For the collection, François Nars was inspired by the eyes. “It just seemed like the collection needed to revolve around eyes and especially how eye color and texture can convey not just character and mood but a period in time, be it an era or a decade or even a season.”

A Surprise from Kat Von D's New Metal Crush Eyeshadows

I was pretty excited when I saw KAT VON D’s Metal Crush Eyeshadows ($21 @ coming out for the fall. While I try and wear the bright colors like theses when it comes to shadows it seems that I gravitate towards them more for lips but things can change!

Each color is made with the brand’s own technology called Color-Soaked Concentrate, which are custom blended powders for the greatest possible saturations of pigments and pearls in a long-wearing eyeshadow. Each seems to have a metallic finish and comes in 11 colors.

So how did these do? Well you may be surprised. I know I was.

I’ve tried similar ones like these here and here and like the texture and longevity so how do these differ? Find out after the jump!

New Pigments from Ardency Inn!

Another product to review from ARDENCY INN line and this brand seems to knows what … I like! One is really pigmented powders like these MODSTER Mānuka Honey Enriched Pigments and  another is that they’re made with one of my favorite ingredients on the plant, honey! Why honey? To help the formula’s creaminess and staying power. But these don’t just use any honey, they are made with Mānuka Honey, a mono floral produced in New Zealand and Australia from the Mānuka tree. There are twelve gorgeous  shades in the collection and the two here are Heaven and Hell. Hmmmm, tribute to Ronnie James perhaps?

See more pictures and swatches after the jump.
