Neoneutral the Christopher Kane Collection for NARS Review and Swatches

The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection is a collaboration that has brought about a selection of gorgeous shades that balance natural nudes with vibrant neons. The formulas and colours of these blushes, eyeshadows, and lip glosses are a such a joyful mix of sheer and vibrant, matte and glittery, subdued and bold, that I couldn't help but fall in love. Not to mention the packaging. Just look at that amazing packaging! The signature matte black rubberized packaging with neon pink foiled lettering. Hot! Starscape Blush ($30

Get That Dewy Skin Natural Look with These New Products from Nudestix

NUDESTIX has added several new products to their range recently and I'm going to be sharing some of them with you today. NUDESTIX #gobronze ($35 US/$38 CAD) is a beautifully packaged set including two Magnetic Eye Color Pencils in Gilt and Immortal. The gold and bronze shades offer a subtle magnetic finish and have great pigmentation and colour payoff. I highly recommend using a primer with these as I always experience quite a bit of creasing and fading. The shadows can be blended out for a sheerer finish or worn more opaquely,

My Latest Beauty Obsession | Urban Decay Afterglow Blush Review

Today the Makeup Wars team is sharing our Latest Beauty Obsession. Mine is the newly released, for Summer 2015, Urban Decay Afterglow Blush ($26 US/$31 CAD). More specifically my obsession is the shade Obsessed from the Afterglow blush line. The packaging of the Afterglow blushes is fantastic. The gunmetal effect compact is lightweight and secures with a strong magnetic closure. The lid of the compact has a fishnet design that can be seen, along with the blush shade beneath, through the UD cutout on the outside of the lid. The

NARS Dual Intensity Blush and Eye Shadow Review and Look

Recently, after the success of the NARS Dual-Intesity Eyeshadows, NARS released their new NARS Dual Intensity Blush duos. I actually had yet to try the NARS Dual-Intensity Eye Shadow formula so I took the opportunity to test out both and create a look. The shade of blush I tested was the NARS Dual-Intestity Blush ($45 US/$52 CAD) in Frenzy. Certainly not an optimal shade combination for a fair cool-neutral skin tone but I was not disappointed with the formula. The colour description for Frenzy is "sparkling soft pink-gold

I don't know about you but sometimes I just feel off trying to use a coral blush in the winter. It is very much a spring/summer indulgence for me. I have selected my current "go to" favourites for this spring. Some of these are new releases for Spring 2015 and others are long time favourites. In no particular order: Guerlain

Guerlain Météorites Perles de Blush Angelic Radiance for Spring 2015 Review, Photos, Swatches

Ahh Guerlain Meteorites. Such pretty, pretty balls. It's no wonder there is such a cult following. They are such a thing of beauty. For Spring 2015 Guerlain has released the Guerlain Météorites Perles de Blush Angelic Radiance ($53 US/$69 CAD). The packaging is cardboard and feature raised adorable angelic cherubs. The puff included is basic white. The puff does a great job of picking up product.

The final item I have to share with you from the SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE 2015 Colour of the Year Marsala 18-1438 Capsule Collection is the Cooling Marsala Multi Stick ($25 US/$32 CAD).

It gives a sheer wash of the Marsala hue with subtle shimmer. The exterior packaging features a transparent marsala ombre effect. It is really quite

Dior Cheek & Lip Glow

Dior Cheek & Lip Glow Review, Photos, Swatches | Dior Spring 2015 Kingdom of Colours Collection

The Dior Cheek & Lip Glow ($39 CAD) in Instant Blushing Rosy Tint 001 is one of the coolest looking products I've seen released in a while. I love just looking at it on my desk bathed in sunlight. It has such a lovely glowing effect. The packaging is similar to a Dior nail polish bottle. The cap lifts off (no twisting) and reveals the black twist cap below with attached applicator. The applicator wand has a tapered ball shaped felt tip. I find it works really well for picking up the right amount of product without

Urban Decay Naked on the Run ($54 US/$64 CAD) is an all in one look palette that offers a range of beautiful neutrals to take you from day to night. This well thought out collection is packaged perfectly not only for travel but also for popping in your handbag for touchups on the go. The packaging is a very solid and hefty feeling metallic rose gold plastic palette with magnetic closure. The artwork on the palette gives off and animalistic vibe to me even though nothing about the pattern looks like animal print. When you shift
