A Fab Palette from Urban Decay

I’ve been sitting on this feature for some time waiting for the palette to be available and I see that it now is at Sephora. It’s URBAN DECAY Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette ($55 only @ sephora.com) and if you’re obsessed with UD’s shadows, this is a must have.

What It Is: A limited-edition eye shadow palette with a spectrum of 15 shades from Urban Decay’s iconic Eyeshadows.

IT Cosmetics Gives You Brow Power!

One of my all-time favorite brow liners is now in a super skinny casing. IT COSMETICS Brow Power Super Skinny ($24 @ qvc.com) and I believe it’s replacing their YBBB Your Brows But Better. This original liner was a universal shade in that the harder you pushed while applying, the darker the color would appear. What they’ve done here is created a pencil for each hair color: Auburn, Blonde, Dark Brown, Grey, Medium Brown, Warm Blonde.

Lining the Line with Urban Decay

Do you line your waterline? I have been known to line them during the day but seem to mainly do it at night so like a face primer, it has become part of my the “going out” routine. I’ve tried out quite a few in the past few years and lot of them just don’t last in that inner rim of the eye. I mean, it’s quite a challenge for a company to create a product that will last since the waterline is not exactly a dry area.

The latest product to come out made especially for this area is URBAN DECAY 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil ($20 @ urbandecay.com and sephora.com). The five available shades are a demi-matte and safe to wear on the inner rims of your eye. Pretty straight forward, right?

Get Pixelated with Japonesque

Japonesque-Pixelated-Color-Palette-main
What It Is
: JAPONESQUE Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette ($38 @ ulta.com and soon japonesque.com) - 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!

Two from the Fall 2015 Collection from Smashbox!

Smashbox-L.A.-Lights-Blendable-Lip-&-Cheek-Color-and-Photo-Angle-Pure-Pgment-Gel-Liner
Have you seen any of the fall products from the 2015 Fall Collection from SMASHBOX? Let’s take a look at two up close! First up, L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color ($29 @ smashbox.com) shown here in Beverly Hills Blush (peachy pink with golden shimmer). On one side is a creamy color and on the other is a round rubber sponge to blend it in. They call this one a, “multipurpose lip + check color,” but truth be told, I’ve never been a fan of using one product for both lips and(it) cheeks. When in a pinch? Sure. But right outta the box? Nah.

Can you believe that we’re already at Vice4 from URBAN DECAY? That’s a lot of Vices! So Vice4 ($60 @ urbandecay.com and sephora.com) is part of their Holiday 2015 Collection, and like the previous two, it doesn’t disappoint.

Packed with twenty basic and edgy shades housed in one limited-edition palette, it will fulfill all your eye shadow needs.

Be warned, some of the shades swatch quite differently then they look in the palette as you'll see after the jump!

NARS Fall 2015 Color Collection

NARS-Fall-2015-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.”

Will Your Eye Shadow Move With These Primers?

Ciate-London-Cooling-Eyeshadow-Slick-tubes-2
The CIATE LONDON line is really branching out from nail polish to other makeup categories like with these Cooling Eyeshadow Slick Eyeshadow Primers ($16 @ sephora.com). These shadow primers are different from others that I’ve tried as the formula is super thin, and almost immediately dry down after applying and don’t move.

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 @ sephora.com) 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.

Benefit Cosmetics Drops Air Patrol

Just out is BENEFIT COSMETICSAir Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer ($29 @ sephora.com) and it seems to be breaking some ground.

It’s a shadow primer, has SPF 20, an EnviroDefend Complex, which is supposed to protect from environmental stress, hydrates the skin, and comes in a one-color-fits all shade, which seems to blend into being invisible on the skin.
