Happily, our latest Beauty Buys story is here to help! We have combed through all the latest beauty collections to select the crème de la crème of cosmetics! From nail polish to eyeshadow, from lipstick to lip gloss, we are sure you will find something you just have to have in today’s story. So what are you waiting for? Read on for all the need-to-know details on this season’s most must-have products!
When it comes to creating a glam eye look, there is no better time of year than party season to play around with bold details. For that reason, we just can’t get enough of the new Arabian Nights Trio Eyeshadow ($45) by NARS Cosmetics. Each of the three shades—shimmering gunmetal black, purple-black, and red-black—will stand out alone, but the truly courageous among you can also create a sultry smoky eye by mixing and matching. Now, if you can’t afford to be quite so bold, we suggest you check out the new Glitter & Ice Mineralize Eyeshadow ($21) by MAC Cosmetics. (Our favorite is Hold That Pose!, a marbled mix of purple and pink.) These eyeshadows are perfect for the girl-on-the-go who needs a pocket-size option, plus there are shades to suit every skin tone. What more could you ask for? Well, how about a set of eye pencils to complete your look? This season, we are coveting the 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash ($34) by Urban Decay. These versatile pencils allow a multitude of looks, plus they come in a multitude of shades—from violet to bright turquoise to frosted taupe.
Moving on to the lips, we are simply smitten with the new collection of Private Blend Lipstick ($48) by Tom Ford. These luxe lipsticks will give you an ultra-sexy lip look, while ingredients like soja seed extract and Brazilian murumuru butter will allow for super-smooth application. Our pick? We love Violet Fatale, a deep aubergine hue. Of course, if you prefer lip gloss over lipstick, we have something for you too! We love Giorgio Armani’s latest Gloss d’Aramni Lip Gloss ($28) collection. There are four new shades to choose from—including our preference, #404—and each one is guaranteed to give you a velvety finish and plenty of color. Now, if you need an all-in-one solution for your eyes and your lips, make sure you check out the new Party To Go Palette ($25) by Bobbi Brown. Featuring three eyeshadow shades, two lip colors, and one lip gloss, this palette has everything a party girl could possibly need!
To wrap up, we found two must-have products that will provide your beauty look with its finishing touches. Firstly, we are love-struck over Guerlain’s Meteorite Perles de Nuit ($56). The pot features highlighting and correcting pearls in six different colors, each of which provides you with a special benefit, from evening out your complexion to delivering a healthy glow. The result? Radiant skin that will last all night long! Secondly, we are hooked on Dolce & Gabbana’s latest Intense Nail Lacquer ($20) shades: Grey Pearl and Amethyst. These colors will add a surprising, interesting twist to your beauty look, while complementing almost everything in your wardrobe! Happy beauty shopping!
