So I attended the launch of the NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection at the NARS boutique on Bleecker Street, and I was instantly drawn to the intense, saturated colours, especially for a holiday collection!  This limited edition collection features a new/special texture that appears in this collection only called Cinematic.  Actually it’s just they eye shadows and lipsticks, which allows them to be buttery smooth and highly pigmented at the same time.  NARS has amazing quality products to begin with but this just kicked the level up a few more notches.

Anyway, I don’t have a lot (or any as a matter of fact) copper-toned eye shadows, so I picked up this gorgeous colour Cambodia.

Swatch, Cambodia

Très riche!! A beautiful coppery, reddish brown colour!  Actually this texture reminds me of the previously released MAC Starflash texture.  Very finely milled, but pigmented and smooth.

So for this look, I decided to also combine my favourite eye shadow from the summer as well incorporating a little colour theory.

Here’s the look, that I previously posted on Instagram! Follow me here —-> NoireTropicalB

Yes, ah seein’ blue!!!  Maybelline is the official makeup sponsor for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week and they have brought out a limited edition coloured mascara collection.  All vibrants!! The deep blue one, caught my eye!!! They also have purple, green, teal and other colours but……the shade “I See Blue” was it!!

Again, don’t like the wand for the original but the pigmentation is wonderful! I love a coloured mascara to have a little fun with makeup and change up the look, but since I’m not wearing green lashes everyday, I don’t want to spend $30 for a high-end mascara.

I grabbed this up, as it seems to be the most popular of the colours.  They are available at drugstores, but when they are done, that’s it!  Check out my swatches below.
