From the brightly lit aisles of the
NYX: NYX Cosmetics’ new Haute Jersey Leopard Couture palette has everything you need to draw attention to yourself (in a good way.) Can’t afford
NARS: Can’t get away to the East or West Coast this summer for a vacation?
Rimmel London: While I count Diorshow as one of my top three go-to mascaras, I am not a mascara snob. I use drugstore
Maybelline: Invariably when
L'Oreal Paris: Another fave drugstore brand, L’Oreal has three new interesting things out. The Double Extend Eye Illuminator Eyeliner has a color on one end and a white illuminating pencil on the other. And for all you makeup application idiots out there (I count myself in this group), there’s the One Sweep eye shadow and blush collection. The eye shadows come with three shades in the same pan, which you swipe with an over-sized applicator that’s shaped like a claw. Then you apply it--in one motion. Defining and contouring done. Ditto for the blush/highlighter combo. (Cheap, drugstores everywhere)
Le Metier de Beaute: Being a mascara junkie, I was excited to see these Anamorphic Lash mascaras in aubergine, jade, and midnight. With just enough color to be interesting, but not so much as to be jarring, they really opened up my eyes. I added the jade just to the tips over some black mascara and it looked fantastic. This is definitely a splurge item, but you can make it last. ($34, Neiman Marcus)
