NARS Valhalla Eyeshadow -Spring 2015

I used to wear peach eyeshadow a lot years ago and this new shade from NARS reminded me how much I liked it.

Valhalla is part of the Spring collection . It's very shimmery pale peach that adds a nice wash of color to lids . It's subtle but looks lovely all over the lid with a deeper liner and also as an inner corner shade. It's the type of color that instantly brightens.

NARS Spring is all about the nudes and neutral beiges and  their new lipstick Liguria is a perfect complement to this if you want a more "natural" look.  I'll have that review up next week.

NARS Valhalla Single Eyeshadow  is $ 25 and is available now at , February 1st at  department stores and Sephora .

L'Oreal Infallible Pro Last Lipcolor

Long wear lipsticks, good ones , have been a hard to come by. Most are dry , feel uncomfortable, tugging on lips and look blah due to the dry consistency.

L'Oreal's new Infallible Pro Last Lipcolor is a welcome launch if you're looking for a long wearing lip.

The pigments are very full and rich with one stroke coverage. It feels good on lips , no stiff, tight feel.  It doesn't take long for the color to set and dry down , then you use the clear stick balm on the opposite side of the wand to add moisture.  The clear balm is nicely moisturizing and leaves a hint of shine but not a gloss.

I went about 4 hours including drinking and light snacking before I saw any wear in the color and it was just a bit. After 6 hours it was faded far more but a stain was still visible. Everyone's wear time will vary . I did need to reapply the balm every hour to hour and half to feel comfortable but I was inside and out in 35 degrees- lip balm weather.

Colors shown are Captivated By Cerise and Toujours Teaberry .

Retail is $ 12.99

Shisedo Perfecting Stick Concealer

Looking for a new concealer ? One that really covers and lasts? Coming soon from Shiseido is Perfecting Stick Concealer.

This new concealer has  full coverage and feels a little like foundation but it's not heavy or overdone and blends easily.   It's also emollient making it a nice under eye choice but isn't greasy or nor does it have any oil in it.  

It does a bang up job on dark spots too, covering them completely.  The tube is a nice size at .17 oz , so should last awhile. 

Shiseido Perfecting Concealer Stick is $ 25 ,  comes in 6 shades and will be available in February. 

Shade shown is Natural 33 .
