I have recently posted about some new lip products: glossy ones and classy lipsticks but it seems like those uber popular matte (often liquid) lipsticks are not going anywhere. And here are the brand new releases.

SS17 Eye Shadows Palettes: Stila, Tarte, Viseart, LORAC, Kat Von D, Smashbox

As I have already mentioned on Twitter, it is easier to say what brand is not bringing out eye brow products for AW. You can browse the “Launches” section to see for yourself. And here are a few that I haven’t mentioned before…

Smashbox Brow Gloss Stick

It gives eye brows a natural sheen, there is a spoolie on the other end.
