NARS Vevet Shadow Sticks (Fall 2015 Makeup Collection) - Swatches

NARS Vevet Shadow Sticks Fall 2015 Makeup Collection Swatches Hollywoodland Goddess Oaxaca Aigle Noir Sukhothai Flibuste
NARS Vevet Shadow Sticks ($28 each) at Sephora

Making its official launch as part of the NARS Fall 2015 Makeup Collection is the Velvet Shadow Stick - a silky, velvety shadow in a twist-up pencil format and available in a range of rich colors for layering under and over, blending and setting, creating looks that are modern and sophisticated. Cream eyeshadows - sticks as well as the more traditional pots - are making quite a comeback now with almost every fall collection having a version of these.  NARS Velvet shadow sticks are similar to the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks in their packaging design but the colors in the NARS version are a lot more geared toward rich, bold makeup looks, though there are a few neutral shades too.  Here's a look at the swatches.

Chanel Les Automnales Fall 2015 Makeup Collection includes 3 new nail polishes - 2 dark colors Vert Obscur (679) and Chataigne (669) - and a red Ecorce Sanguine (671).  I picked up the two darker colors, and the one I have on here today is Vert Obscur.  It's a dark green-teal color, glossy dark finish that looks almost black on the nails.  Scroll on for more photos.

Marc Jacobs Mod Noir Eau de Parfum Spray - Review

Marc Jacobs Mod Noir Eau de Parfum Spray Perfume Review - Womens Fragrance
Marc Jacobs Mod Noir Eau de Parfum Spray ($90) at Sephora
Fragrance Notes:  
Greens, Gardenia, Creamy Musks.
Style:  Bold. Modern. Unique. 

Marc Jacobs fragrances are among some of my favorite perfumes for summer, so when the new Marc Jacobs Mod Noir Eau de Parfum launched, I just had to give it a try.  The design of this perfume bottle is quite different from the usual Marc Jacobs bottles - no pretty flowers or cute polka dots on this one.  Mod Noir is packaged in a simple rounded frosted glass bottle with glossy black linear stripes on it and a glossy black round top.  The design has a modern simplicity to it, and I was expecting the perfume to be just as clean and simple.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Rouge Gorge (116) - Fall 2015 Les Automnales Makeup Collection

Chanel Illusion DOmbre Rouge Gorge 116 Fall 2015 Les Automnales Makeup Collection Review Swatch FOTD

Chanel Fall 2015 Makeup Collection - Les Automnales - is one of my favorite makeup collections to launch this year, and among the few proucts that I picked from this collection is the new Illusion D'Ombre in Rouge Gorge.  Chanel Illusion D'Ombre - cream eyeshadows - have been around for a while, but I have stayed away from these because of the abundance of shimmer in most of them. From the promo images, Rouge Gorge seemed like a matte formula, and since I couldn't find a tester to try it in store, I decided to buy it anyway and test out Nordstrom's fabulous return policy if things turned too sparkly :P  Scroll on for more photos and review.

Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze Hair Treatment

Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze Hair Treatment Deep Conditioning Prewash Mask - Natural Haircare - Review
Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze Hair Treatment

I have frizz-prone, color-treated hair and am always on the lookout for good deep conditioning treatments and hair masks.  My favorite ones are the hair treatments by Lush, and the one I am reviewing today is the uber-moisturizing Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze hair treatment.  The key ingredients in this mask/treatment are henna (for shine) and a bunch of nutrient-filled oils (jojoba, brazil nut, coconut oil), and it claims to provide shine as well as softness to the hair.  Scroll on for more photos and my thoughts on the Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze hair treatment.

As part of Summer 2015 Gifting collection, NARS has released 2 new NARSissist eyeshadow palettes - NARSissist Matte/Shimmer Eyeshadow palette and the Hardwired Eye Kit.  I spotted the matte/shimmer palette at my local Sephora and got some swatches to share.  This limited-edition palette features a mix of matte and shimmer eyeshadows with warm neutrals for a soft daytime looks as well as darker shimmering shades for night.  The eyeshadows are divided into Day Series Eyeshadow Shades: Nassau, Maya Bay, Ithaca, Dogon; Night Series Eyeshadow Shades: Mandchourie, Bonifacio, Zagreb, Heraklion.  The palette also includes a Night Clubbing Mini Night Series Eyeliner.  Scroll on for more photos and swatches.

Easy Makeup Tutorial: A Strobing-Inspired Dewy Peach-Toned Look

Easy Makeup Tutorial How To Steps Strobing-Inspired Dewy Peach-Toned Look
My take on Strobing:  A dewy peach-toned makeup look

My makeup look for most of this week has focused around the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Rouge Gorge.  It's a coral-peach cream eyeshadow with very fine coppery-gold shimmer in it, so the overall effect on the eyes is a glossy dewy finish.  Since I have darker eyelids (which I don't bother correcting with a concealer or foundation), this shows up as a very subtle haze of peach on my lids.  I extended this dewy, peach-toned look for the rest of my face with soft peach lips and my favorite highlighter - Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. With so many tutorials on strobing, it's hard not to get caught up in the highlighted skin trend, but it doesn't work with my oily-combination, pores-and-acne-marks-galore skin.  So, I adapt by building up a dewy skin effect with natural-looking foundation and opting for a more strategic placement of highlighters.  Scroll on for a look at the products I have used for this dewy (strobing-inspired) peach-toned makeup look, and an easy (pic-heavy) makeup tutorial.

Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss - Swatches and (Mini)Review

Make Up For Ever Plexigloss Swatches Review - MUFE Lipgloss 304
Wearing Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss in 304
Details of other products and an easy makeup tutorial HERE.

Despite all the positive reviews on about the brand, I haven't tried very many products from MUFE, but the few products that I have tried have all been awesome.  Case in point - the new Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss.  I got to try 3 of these lipglosses when I got them as a sample with purchase from Sephora.  Pigmented, glossy, and oh-so-lip-friendly, these lipglosses are a must-have.  I stopped  by the MUFE display at Sephora to check on the other colors in this range and got some swatches to go with my mini-review.

Bobbi Brown Lipsticks - Swatches

Bobbi Brown Lipsticks ($27 each) at Nordstrom

Bobbi Brown lipsticks were first sold in 1991.  Named Bobbi Brown Essentials, this collection debuted at Bergdorf Goodman with 10 neutral lipstick shades and sold out instantly.  Today, Bobbi Brown lipsticks are available in many more options, both in terms of finish as well as colors.  The classic Bobbi Brown lipstick is a creamy semi-matte lipstick that gives comfortable full-coverage color.  Scroll on for swatches of these Bobbi Brown lipsticks.

Beige - Light warm beige; Beige Gold Shimmer - Champagne gold; Cabo Coral - Mid-tone coral

Overall, Bobbi Brown lipsticks have some classic colors ranging from sophisticated reds to easy to wear neutrals and corals.  The lipsticks are quite pigmented and feel moisturizing.  My favorites among the colors would be Gauva, Cabo Coral (I am partial to peachy corals), Pink Nectar, and the neutral colors like Tulip and Soft Rose.  I don't usually wear bright reds or oranges, but I am tempted to try Lady Ruba.

Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum - Review
Cosmedica Hyaluronic Acid Serum ($10.99/30mL) at cosmedica-skincare.com

Hyaluronic acid seems to be the new must-have skincare ingredient, but it has been around for a while now, used mostly as an injectable filler to help plump up skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  Now, though, hyaluronic acid seems to be have found popularity as a topically applied anti-aging and moisturizing ingredient with every other brand now releasing a cream, serum, or mask (or all three) containing this miracle ingredient.  My first experience with a hyaluronic acid containing product was the Chanel Resynchronizing La Nuit serum, and I was quite impressed with its moisturizing benefits.  This was my go-to serum until recently, but I wanted to try out a less expensive option and bought the Cosmedica Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Amazon after reading the many positive reviews on it.  Scroll on for my thoughts on this product.

Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Pop Water Glossy Stain - Swatches


Another recent launch from YSL are the Vernis À Lèvres Pop Water Glossy Stains - lipglosses that promise 10-hydration effect and a vibrant burst of sheer color.  The packaging and design of these glosses is nearly identical to the other YSL Glossy stains.  The range includes 8 glosses as well as one lip plumper - Vernis À Lèvres Plump Up Glossy Stain.  Here's a look at the swatches.

YSL Full Metal Eyeshadows - Swatches

YSL Yves Saint Laurent Full Metal Eyeshadows - Swatches
Yves Saint Laurent Fluid Eyeshadows ($30 each) at Sephora

Fluid eyeshadows seem to be the flavor of the moment in the makeup world, the latest entrant being the Dior Addict Fluid Eyeshadow Sticks from the Fall 2015 Dior Cosmopolite connection.  YSL was ahead of the game and launched the YSL Full Metal Shadows a while back.  Available in 6 shades, these liquid eyeshadows are metallic and shimmery and are made with 40% water for a cooling effect on the lids.  These eyeshadows can be applied as an all over lid color or as eyeliners, and the applicator is a doe-foot wand, similar to those of lipglosses.  Here's a peek at swatches of these eyeshadows.

Product in the photo is a tester and not actual product.

Chanel Harmonie Levres Arabesque Lip Palette was released as part of the La Pearle de Chanel collection and is available at Nordstrom now.  The photo above is that of the tester on display - in all the swatch madness happening this week, I forgot to take a photo of the actual palette!  The lip palette includes 3 shades of lipsticks and 2 lipglosses and comes with 2 double-ended mini lip brushes (not shown in the tester).  The lip colors are all very wearable and would look good on most skin tones, and can be worn alone or combined to create new shades.  Here's a look at the swatches.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette - Swatches

The newest entrant into the Urban Decay Naked palettes family is the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette, and as is the case with everything UD - Naked, this too generated quite a buzz when it released.  The palette features a mix of matte, shimmer, and satin-textured eyeshadows, and the colors range from softer neutrals to some deeper dark colors. Also included with the palette is a double-ended brush and a detailed lookbook with four chic looks.  Scroll on for more photos and swatches.

Middle row:  Retrospeck - Greensmoke - Felt - Print - Carbon
Bottom row:  Orb - Luscious - Soft Brown - Trax - Plummed

There have been quite a few MAC palettes released recently, and while most of them look interesting, I am a bit wary of MAC eyeshadow palettes (the premade ones), and true to expectations, most of them have been quite disappointing when swatched,  The newest MAC palette at Nordstrom is the MAC - Nordstrom's Finest Eyeshadow palette.  This 15-eyeshadow palette has a lovely mix of neutrals as well as some deeper purples, browns, and blacks.  I love a good neutral palette, so I just had to check this palette at the MAC counter.  Turns it's not all that bad!  Here's a peek at the swatches.

Chanel Travel Makeup Palette (2015 - Limited Edition) - Swatches

Chanel Travel Makeup Palette 2015 Swatches
Chanel Travel Makeup Palette (2015) - $95 at Nordstrom

I have always wanted to to try out one of the Chanel travel makeup palettes, but they never seem to launch in India, and even when I moved to the US, I somehow managed to always miss them whenever they were released.  Nordstrom has a new Chanel Travel Makeup Palette available currently, and I tried it out while at the counter.  The palette has 5 eyeshadows and 5 lip color options along with the Les Beiges powder in 20 as well as a soft pink Joues Contraste blush (listed as Rose Shimmer).  The palette comes with 2 tiny applicators for the lip and eye products as well as a small powder/blush application brush.  I suppose they could be useful in a pinch, but I think carrying your own brushes/applicators might be a better idea.  Anyhow, here's a peek at the swatches of the products included in this palette.

Spotted the YSL Fall 2015 Makeup Collection - Rebel Metal (??) - at Nordstrom, and I think this has been out for a while, but I missed seeing this earlier.  I am assuming this is the Rebel Metal Fall 2015 collection based on this post on Chicprofile.  This a small, compact collection with some very nice products.  Here's a look at the swatches of some of the products.

Chanel Les Automnales Fall 2015 Makeup Collection at Nordstrom 

It does feel a little odd to see fall 2015 makeup collections pouring into stores in the middle of summer, but I guess the beauty/fashion industry lives on a whole different planet.  Of course, that also means winters clothes are coming in, and I can find summer dresses and shorts on sale now, but no such luck with makeup (at least not the ones I want) :P   Anyway getting back to the topic of makeup, I have been waiting for the Chanel Fall 2015 makeup collection ever since photos started showing up on Specktra, and I got lucky today because the Chanel counter at Nordstrom was just setting up the display when I got there.  Not all the testers were on display yet, and the manager at the counter had to actually search out the testers for me to swatch :D  I picked up a few pieces from the collection, but first here's a look at the swatches of some of the products from the Chanel Fall 2015 makeup collection.

Chanel Chance Eau Vive Eau de Toilette - Review

Chanel Chance Eau Vive Eau de Toilette Perfume Review
Chanel Chance Eau Vive Eau de Toilette ($77-$97) at Nordstrom

Chance Eau Vive is the latest perfume launch from Chanel and joins the three already existing versions of Chanel Chance.  Of all the Chanel perfumes I have tried, Chance would be my least favorite (still preferred over a lot of other perfumes, though), so I was not too interested in trying the newest version.  Curiosity got the better of me, though, and I got a sampler of Chanel Chance Eau Vive from Nordstrom.

Easy Summer Everyday Makeup Tutorial: Neutral with a Pop of Color

Easy Everyday Summer Makeup Tutorial - Soft Rose Brown Neutral Eyes Bright Lips Pop of Color
Today's Makeup:  Neutral with a Pop of Color

My eye makeup routine is pretty basic most days, but over the past two weeks I have been having issues with my eyes (getting red and irritated by the end of the day) and have been walking around with glasses on and getting my fix of makeup with bright lip colors.  Today was the first time I actually tried on some eye makeup, and this soft rose-brown eye makeup uses two of my favorite NARS eyeshadows - Lola Lola and Grenadines - paired with my new favorite bright lip color - MUFE Artist Plexigloss 304.  I got this lipgloss as a sampler/GWP from Sephora, and I am obsessed with it!  Anywho, here's a look at the products I used and an easy how-to on this summer everyday makeup look.

MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencils Swatches - Teen Dream Innocent Fearless Hopelessly Devoted French Kiss Sultana Spontaneous Ruby Kittenish Patent Pink Go for Girlie Pleasant Clever Revved Up Innocent
MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencils ($20 each) available at Nordstrom

MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencils are everything that I love in a lip color - sheer pops of color, balmy texture, and a twist-up chubby pencil design.  It's easy to apply, most of the colors are quite wearable, and the packaging/design makes it perfect for carrying around in the bag for quick touch-ups through a hot summer day.  Here's a look at the swatches.

Fall collections have been trickling into stores, but a lot of the launches have been online, and I haven't spotted very many of these in-store.  The Dior counter at my local Nordstrom, though, had the Dior Cosmopolite Fall 2015 makeup collection on display, and while I don't usually get too excited about Dior releases, the Dior fall collection definitely does have some good products.  Here's a peek at some swatches.

Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum - Review

Chanel Perfumes - Coco Eau de Parfum Spray - Review
Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum ($92 - $122) at Nordstrom

Chanel perfumes have always been among my favorite, and the very first "grown-up" perfume I bought was a bottle of Chanel No. 5 (EDT).  I remember standing at the counter, trying out all the different perfumes, and while it was not what I ultimately ended up buying (all the hype about No. 5 made me buy that instead), Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum was the first Chanel perfume I tried and loved.  Now that I am all too familiar with the word "reformulation" thanks to the perfume blogs that I read, I definitely regret not having picked up a bottle ages back.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquers - Swatches

Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored HiShine Lip Lacquers Lipgloss Swatches
Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquers ($28 each) at Sephora

Marc Jacobs Beauty comes up with new launches quite often - sometimes it's just repackaged/renamed basics - and one such new product on the shelves at Sephora is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer.  These lipglosses claim to provide wear and shine comparable to “30 coats of lacquer” and are mint-scented. Colors include creamy pinks, shimmering lavenders, and nudes and neutrals mixed with irridescent shimmer.  The packaging (or the product itself) doesn't seem different from the older Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyls, but I haven't tried these on lips to know for sure.  Here's a look at the swatches.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliners - Swatches

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliners - Swatches
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliners ($25 each) at Nordstrom

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliners are among some of the most popular eyeliners, mostly because they are available in so many colors.  The only color I own is Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Violet Ink, a beautiful dark purple color.  The gel eyeliner range has now expanded to include quite a few more shades, and here's a look at the swatches of some of these eyeliners.

Bobbi Brown Telluride Eyeshadow Palette (Fall 2015)

Bobbi Brown Telluride Eyeshadow Palette Fall 2015 Makeup Collection Swatches
Bobbi Brown Telluride Eyeshadow Palette for Fall 2015 ($52) at Nordstrom

Part of Bobbi Brown Fall 2015 collection (and we are just getting started on the summer heat here) is the usual neutral-themed eyeshadow palette - Bobbi Brown Telluride Eye Palette.  I still haven't made up my mind about Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palettes.  Most of the palettes I have tried so far - swatching only - seem to be barely pigmented and/or just too light to show up on my darker skin tone.  That said, Bobbi Brown does come up with some good basic eyeshadow palettes, and if you are on the lookout for a eyeshadow palette that features some soft neutral shades, this one might be perfect.  A dual-ended brush is also included in this palette.  Here's a look at the swatches.

Bobbi Brown Telluride Eyeshadow Palette Fall 2015 Makeup Collection Swatches - Cream Woodrose Velvet Plum Heather Antique Rose Smokey Brown
Bobbi Brown Telluride Eyeshadow Palette - Swatches
Cream - warm white
Woodrose - brownish pink
Velvet Plum Metallic - black plum shimmer
Blazing Star Sparkle - sheer pink gold sparkle
Heather Rose Shimmer Wash - warm pink shimmer
Antique Rose - rosy brown
Smokey Brown - rich smoky brown

Bobbi Brown Telluride Eyeshadow Palette (for fall 2015) is the typical neutral palette with a couple of basic soft brown shades.  The sparkle eyeshadow - Blazing Star - won't show up at all on swatches, but it's not meant to be used on its own, rather to be patted on over other eyeshadows for a hint of shimmer.  The matte eyeshadows all seem smooth and pigmented, and I quite like the metallic Velvet Plum shade, but overall, I think this is a better eyeshadow palette for lighter skin tones.  It also seems to be an easy palette to dupe, imo, and there might even be quite a few older Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palettes that are very similar.

A Gold and Peach Warm-Toned Everyday Makeup Look for Summer

Easy Summer Makeup Tutorial - Gold Peach Warm Tones - Easy Steps How To Guide
A Gold and Peach Warm-Toned Everyday Makeup Look for Summer

My makeup look this week has been about layering.  Makeup lasts longer that way, though that's not why I have been opting for this routine.  I have a whole bunch of Urban Decay eyeliner pencils, and while I use a couple of the matte ones quite regularly, the more shimmery/bright colors are barely touched.  Since these pencils are quite long-lasting, I have been using a few of these as all-over lid colors under or over other eyeshadows.  For today's look I have used Urban Decay's Scorch more as a base that doesn't show up too much in the end but definitely adds a sparkle and dimension to the overall look.  My lip color also needed a bit of layering with a rarely used orangey-brown L'Oreal lipstick topped with a nude lipliner and a beige lipgloss.  Scroll on for more details on what I used for this warm-toned gold and peach makeup look and an easy makeup tutorial.
