Sneak Peek: MAC Nordstrom’s Finest Eyeshadow Palette Photos & Swatches

MAC Nordstrom's Finest Eyeshadow Palette
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)!

Are you ready for Today’s Special Value at QVC? It’s the ghd Eclipse Professional 1″ Styling Iron, which normally retails for $245, but it is available for $179 today only, July 6th!

The ghd Eclipse Professional 1″ Styling Iron is designed to deliver a consistent 365°F (185°C) temperature and can straighten, curl, flip, add volume, all while reducing frizz. In 2014, it won Allure Magazine’s Best of Beauty award for Hot Tool/Flatiron. It uses six sensors, three on the top plate and three on the bottom plate, to keep the temperature consistent while you’re using it. The contoured, precision plates help you style your hair with smooth, snag-free styling. ghd says it heats up in a mere 20 seconds, making it ideal for those who are short on time. It contains aerogel technology that keeps the exterior cool to the touch, while the iron also comes with a heat guard and will shut off automatically after 30 minutes. The Styling Iron also features universal voltage, so you can travel with it wherever you’re going!

Introducing Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturizer with How-Tos!

Just in time for summer, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF20 has launched! It is described as an “all in one skincare and complexion enhancer” that will “cover imperfections, dark spots, redness, acne scars, and blemishes with a radiant finish.”

To kick off the launch of the new tinted moisturizer, celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg demonstrates how to achieve a “no makeup” makeup look in the video above, while the video below shows how to prep the skin and apply your tinted moisturizer. As the newest addition to the Vinoperfect line, it contains the range’s signature ingredient, viniferine, which Caudalie says is more effective than vitamin C.

The new tinted moisturizer is available in two shades (Light and Medium) and retails for $49. You can learn more about the Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturizer at Caudalie.
