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

Back in the days I was buying eye shadow palettes like there is no tomorrow but in the last several years I have stopped, and now I prefer quads, or even duos. I rarely use more than two shades on my eye lids anyway. But if you are, like my friend,  palette-crazy, I have selected some brand new releases for SS17.

Enjoy, and happy shopping!

Pantone Colour of 2017: Greenery

I have actually posted this on Facebook and Twitter already but why not mentioning it here, as well?

Check out the Pantone colour of the year – Greenery. What do you think of it?  Expect to see a lot of beauty products this shade of pistachio green, like the shown below butter LONDON nail varnish.
