When I first heard that theBalm were about to launch a palette called Nude Dude, I actually thought it was a joke. I highly recommend that you do not google “nude dude”, as I did, trust me on this one. Now, I am hoping that I won’t get wrong kind of audience with such title…
But actually it is true!
Here is a close up. You get twelve neutral eye shadow shades. I really love the look ofRead More
Only recently I’ve posted about the MAC 15 pan neutral eye shadows palettes and here are two more, very tempting, offerings for the nude-ish eye shadows lovers.
The NARSissist eye palette, £55/$79
I think I need this one in my life, with the 15 NARS best-selling shades, it looks stunning: All About Eve I: a flesh-toned neutral, Madrague II: a matte caramel, Fez: a velvety cocoa, Bali: a neutral, Coconut Grove: a deep brown infused with reflections, Madrague I: a matte cream, Nepal: a soft, sheer rose, Ashes to Ashes: a shimmery violet-based brown, Brousse II: a black violet, Mekon: an espresso infused with gold, Bellissima I: a shimmering beige with subtle glitter, Lhasa: a lavender grey, Bad Behavior: a deep pewter, Dogon II: a charcoal black and Pandora II: a matte black.
It seems like there is no such thing as too many neutral eye shadow palettes. This is why Cool Neutral and Warm Neutral Eye Shadow will be a hit, considering the fact that MAC shadows have a lot of fans anyway.
These are already out in the USA for $100 each and should be launched Internationally around March.

In summer, when it’s hot I really don’t like wearing a lot of makeup, I like to keep it simple, yet pretty and with some definition.
Clarins BB Cream is a wonderful product to use in such weather. It suits my (currently) tanned skin, feels light on and evens out the complexion.
Then for the blush I’ve been reaching for YSL’s 4 Audacious Orange blush, it’s my favourite orange and the cream-to-powder formula works great even in the heat. Yes, that’s right - no highlighter or bronzer, the blush was enough.
As for the eyes, I’ve beenRead More
I am pretty sure that you all know by now, that I am a huge fan of BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl which was recommended to me by Lisa Eldridge several years ago.
And although it works perfectly for me and (so far) for all the girls I’ve used it on, some may prefer a different formulation.
So if you are not a huge fan of liquids, you’d be happy to hear about the new Compact Shimmering Skin Perfectors. Naomi, a lovely fellow BECCA fan, actually spotted that these are already available at Sephora and it was nice of her to share.
The new highlighters are described as “creamy powder luminizers”. I wonder if they will bring out Pearl in this formulation. If so, I’d love go get one for myself.
So far the shades that are available are: Opal, Topaz and Moonstone, each retails for $38.
Besides the new highlighters, there is also a lovely eye shadow palette released for summer, Ultimate Eye Color Quad in Sun Chaser.
