A new addition to the Natasha Denona line launching tomorrow at Sephora and Beautylish is the Sunset Eyeshadow Palette, a gorgeous array of shadows aptly named and inspired by the colors of the sunset. Natasha Denona is an internationally acclaimed makeup artist who is well known for creating remarkably beautiful looks prominently seen on the covers of many of today’s magazines. I have been a fan of her line of eye shadows since my first introduction to her brand at IMATS, previously reviewed here

The new NARS 2016 holiday collection is now available online and in store. The collection is a collaboration with famed French fashion photographer Sarah Moon. I always look forward to the limited edition holiday sets from NARS, because of the great value and price point. I absolutely loved the Nars x Steven Klein Collection from last year’s release, reviewed here and here. One thing that immediately piqued my interest this year is the NARS Sarah Moon Mind Game Velvet Lip Set which is exclusive to Sephora. I purchased it as soon as it arrived at my local Sephora and I’ll tell you now that I absolutely love it.

Every year, I look forward to Sephora’s Holiday offerings in the form of their Sephora Favorites kits which range from skincare, hair care, and makeup. The inclusion of full size and deluxe size products in each kit and the great value and price point make them even more covetable.  The kit typically features products from a range of popular brands which gives you an opportunity to try out some of their best sellers without having to spend a fortune. This year’s anticipated Sephora Favorites Lip set, Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip and Liner, $60, is a departure from the kits released in previous years as it contains both lipstick and liner. I picked it up a couple of days ago when I spotted it in store and today I’ll be sharing details and swatches.

An innovative, anti-aging range of products that I have used in my skincare rotation since it first launched in 2011 is Algenist. I’ve been a fan of their Anti-aging eye cream and I was lucky to receive The Best of Algenist Collection recently. This collection offers a comprehensive ritual of anti-aging treatments which have been formulated with their star patented ingredient: Alguronic Acid and/or Microalgae Oil. I have been putting the items to the test for the past two weeks now and I have some first thoughts and impressions to share with you today.

Makeup Forever’s Ultra HD line represents a new generation of high definition formulations which was developed according to the latest technologies in the film and TV industry. Ultra HD is supposed to be completely invisible under the 4k lens, giving a second skin appearance. I was a fan of the original HD foundation, and I’ve had the Ultra HD version in my foundation rotation for several months now.
