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.”

5 Favorite New Beauty Releases

PIXI BEAUTY Full Coverage Foundation Brush ($15 @ – such a compact head but don’t let the lack of length fool you. It still does a great job at getting your liquid products into those corners and contours.

2. OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS Crème Colour Concentrate in Discipline ($23 @ and – described as a bruised-bronze, this multi-tasking creamy color can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks (note that not all 17 shades can be used in the eye area).

3. L’OREAL Infallible Powder Eyeliner Pen in Purple Smoke ($9.99 @ and drugstores nationwide) – if the packaging says ‘Infallible’ on it, I’m in! Seriously though, their Infallible line is flawless. And these fat liners are great for applying a smoking eye in seconds.

4. BENEFIT COSMETICS the POREfessional: License to Blot ($20 @ – this is the latest addition to the POREfessional collection and will be great for the upcoming season. It’s an instant blotting stick with tiny invisible spheres that will mattifying any oil your face puts forth. 

5. BEAUTY 360 Shape-Defining Nail File ($4.99 @ and CVS stores nationwide) – this is my new favorite file! I’ve noticed that sometimes a file has to be “broken in” so it’s not too harsh on the nails. This one arrived perfect and ready to use.

Are These Really the Best Tightlining Pencils Around?

Lining the waterline with eyeliner or as some call it, tightlining, is a really big trend these days, especially if you’re looking to do a really, really smoky eye. It requires you to line the top and bottom waterlines of your eye. Not sure what the waterline is? This site has a great illustration of it.

I have to admit my curiosity was majorly raised after reading Canadian-blogger, Beautezine's, declaration that SHU UEMURA Drawing Pencils were, “the best waterlining eye pencil on the market.” That’s a pretty bold statement, so I had to put them to the test as I’m pretty obsessed with eyeliners in general and applying color on the waterline but finding ones that last is the challenge. 


They come in 18 shades, made from a silicon polymer that is able to stay on the skin, and are made to be used anywhere really, not just on the eyes. And they mix it up with the finishes like this palette does by including ones in matte, pearl, metallic and glitter (the letter before each name below tells you what the finish is).

So how did they work? Click after the jump to find out!

How To Get the Perfect Cat Eye Every Time

And it’s three words – BETH BENDER BEAUTY. I’ve had a lot of practice with all kinds of liners and even though I’ve put in the time, I sometimes find it hard to get the liner on each eye to match. And if I’m in a hurry? Forget about it! But with the Cat Eyeliner Stencil from BBB it’s easy every time. Seriously!
