NARS Artist Palette

August 4, 2010

NARS Cosmetics introduces two new palettes for fall boasting new packaging with a compact in a NARS-logo zippered case. Enclosed in a black carton, NARS continues to surprise and experiment with iconic casing by bringing the logo from traditionally black and white to vibrantly bold color. Both palettes include two signature NARS cheek products chosen to complement the lips or eyes-whether deep and sultry, or light and fresh. Complete with a range of shades to be worn together or alone, the glamorous combinations are limitless. Are you all about the eyes or all about the lips? You decide. Or, choose both to have everything you need at your fingertips. Available only at narscosmetics.com

Conair You Style

August 2, 2010

Conair You Style ($42) allows you to get soft waves or straight styles with one tool. It’s a traditional flat iron that takes hair straight. And it’s got a curved edge to let you add curls and waves with the flick of a wrist. It has 1″ ceramic-coated straightening plates that heat up in 30 seconds up to 360°F.

Recommendation: Save room in your bag with this 2-in-1 styler but it make end up taking up twice the time to curl your hair.

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner

August 1, 2010

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner ($21, 8 oz; $22, 8 oz) makes fine hair look and feel fuller, moisturizes without weight, helps seal split ends and tames flyaways, and the conditioner also contains a silk powder which adheres to hair strands and separates for fullness. For more than $20 a bottle you’d expect big hair but that is not what you get, however, it does make your hair very soft and oil-free!

I wash my hair daily because my hair gets too oily the second day and makes me uncomfortable. With this shampoo and conditioner you can go one..two..probably even four days without washing you hair but I don’t think that’s very hygienic. Surprisingly my hair was completely oil-free on the third day but I washed it because that was too long for me already. I think there are ingredients that help absorb the oil from the hair, maybe it’s the powder from the conditioner. So with less oil on your roots you get hair that isn’t flat, being weighed down. It may not be super voluminous but you won’t have flat oily hair.

Recommendation: It won’t give you big hair but does have another benefit. This shampoo and conditioner will cut down the amount of times you will need to wash your hair because by absorbing the oil from your roots. No shampoo/conditioner I have ever used has done this and just this in itself makes the product worth it.

NYX Eyeshadow

July 28, 2010

NYX Single Eyeshadow ($5.50, 0.09oz) is richly pigmented and with over 160 shades available. These are great eyeshadows at an affordable price! To me these are comparable to MAC, lots of pigmentation and easy to blend at a 1/3 of the price. A lot of the shades are comparable to MAC’s and other big makeup brands. The colors are available in many different textures:
Shimmer: Sparkly eye shadow with soft glittery effect
Matte: Flat color with no shimmer or frost
Sheer: Hint of opalescent color
Glitter: Eye shadow with glitter to create bold sparkles
Frosty: Shimmery eye shadow without glittery effect
Metallic: Bold colors with intense shimmer

Recommendation: MAC eyeshadows cost too much for you? NYX has great eyeshadows at a fraction of the price giving you long lasting pigmented color. They even have trio palettes available with complementary shades to create a great eye look.
