MAC Nordstrom’s Finest Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Nordstrom’s Finest Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.68 oz.) includes fifteen eyeshadows, with each being full-sized (the palette is the same size as the empty 15-pan palettes MAC sells). The palette contains an assortment of permanent shades as well as limited edition/exclusive shades, though some of the shades in this palette that may seem new were released in the Gravitas palette, which was limited edition (Soft Brown, Luscious, Carbon, Persuade, Plummed are repeats). I believe only Chains of Love and Felt haven’t been released before (based on my log of MAC eyeshadows). Full review soon(ish)!
NARS Fall 2015 Color Collection
The Fall 2015 Color Collection, created by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars, stars a lush and lavish mix of shades for eyes, lips, and cheeks. The look begins with natural sculpting of the face. Eyes dramatize in smoky shimmering brown and golden ombré. Lips captivate in tones of iconic red. Making its official launch is the Velvet Shadow Stick, a silky, velvety shadow in a range of sumptuous shades for layering under and over, blending and setting, creating looks that are modern, sophisticated and always tempting.
For Fall 2015, NARS Cosmetics introduces every NARSissist’s eye essential – smoky, subtle, minky, bold – the combinations are endless. The limited-edition eye kit features a compact of six shadows ranging from pale lilac to smoky charcoal, a mini Via De’Martelli Larger Than Life® Eyeliner and a newly designed travel size Wide Contour Brush #43 for easy application on the go. It’s neutrals worth noticing.
Availability: July 15th at NARS; August 1st at department and specialty stores
