A Few New Favorites
L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara: When I first saw the spherical applicator, I was bewildered. This mascara is great for bottom lashes and the smaller lashes at the inner corner of the top lid. Because it's tiny, the application is very precise.
NARS The Multiple in Orgasm: I'm a bigger fan of this suggestively-named color in a cream stick formula than I am as a powder blush. One: It lasts forever. Two: It can be easily applied to the lips and eyes, as well. The effect is romantic and illuminating.
L'Oreal Studio Secrets color quad in Lavender Smokes: This is the deep plum shadow I've been searching for. This brand's shadows are highly pigmented and thoughtfully assembled. I love the gold flecks in the deep plum shade and the golden highlight colors. Combined together, the look is dramatic and smokey.
Cover Girl Cheekers Blush in Rose Gold: This is a deep rose color that fits almost any complexion. Apply with a light hand for a subtle effect, or layer on gradually to add depth and drama.
