Borghese Pomino Plum Nail Lacquer ($8.00) is a frostym, shimmery royal purple with purple-fuchsia shimmer. It’s a nice option for transitioning into fall as the temperatures get cooler! Borghese polish goes on easily with just two coats of polish. This was the first Borghese polish I’ve tried, but I wasn’t disappointed!

OVERALL, some of the palettes offer long-time MAC fans colors they haven’t seen before. As always, the warm palette suckered me in, though I’ll use it once or twice and it’ll get forgotten–I just know it! The lip palettes were surprising, because I’ve never been too drawn to them before, but I found two shades I really wanted to have. I only succumbed to the Coral Lips palette (again, bad move on my part), but the Plum Lips is tempting. Ironically, the Plum Lips is probably more wearable for me than the Coral Lips palette!
Quick review of the brush sets: The brush sets are $35 at Nordstrom’s. Yes, $35, down from $49.50. I do not know why, but I only know that this was confirmed by the Nordstrom MA. So get your brush sets at Nordstrom’s if you can! The brush sets are just like previous years’ sets–the handles are just a different color. This year the handles are a shiny bright holiday red with darker, metallic ferrules.

If you could revamp Smashbox Cream Liner, what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?
Bobbi Brown’s Night Sky Long-Wear Eye Palette ($55.00) is offered as a holiday temptation! This palette includes Rockstar and Ocean long-wear cream shadow as well as Black Ink and Thunder Storm long-wear gel eyeliner. I am a big fan of Bobbi Brown’s long-wear gel eyeliner; I find it’s a bit creamier than most gel liners, but they’re still pigmented enough to give me the darkness I crave.
Rockstar is a silvery shade with a touch of blue undertones, while Ocean is a shimmery midnight blue. Black Ink is pretty much just that – a matte black. Thunder is a dark brownish-gray color. These colors go on just the way they appear, which is great, because I love it when products are true-to-color! I haven’t yet tried out the cream shadows to see how they wear, and I imagine I’ll more likely wear them as liner than as shadows
