Andy Warhol set from NARS:
Products: Illuminator, Nail Polish, and Lip Gloss
As you can see from the swatches above, the illumiantor is a gorgeous silver colour. When blended into the skin, it gives off a shimmery finish. I love putting a small amount of this product on the cheeks to add a dramatic final touch! This shimmery liquid product is great for fall and winter. This is definitely the stand out product from this set.
The nail polish colour is a rich, deep purple. The colour payoff is fantastic, and when I painted my toe nails, I only needed one coat. The lip gloss is in NARS' most popular shade - Orgasm. This colour looks wonderful and can warm up any makeup look.
Overall, I was pleased with this set. The illuminator is definitely the selling point here though!
Head of the Class set from Hello Kitty:
Products: Four Eyeshadows and One Blush
I am in love! This has been my go-to palette lately. First of all, the packaging is super cute - who doesn't love a Nerdy Hello Kitty?! Mostly I am loving one particular eyeshadow colour and the blush. The only down side, is that none of the eyeshadows have names. I will do my best to describe them....
The eyeshadows are beautiful. Very well pigmented and fantastic colours. The light beige colour is quite pretty, as is the light pink. I confess that I haven't used the green shade very much. However, my favourite eyeshadow of the moment is that deep purple-ish brown colour. It looks amazing. I love using it in the crease as a way to add definition without always reaching for a dark brown or black shade. It is slightly more subtle and classic, but just as dynamic. I cannot get over how much I love this colour! It makes the palette a massive success in my eyes.
The blush colour is a beautiful burnt rose shade. It is quite pigmented, so a little goes a long way. It has a nice glowy finish to it, which looks wonderful on the skin. I have been reaching for this blush a lot recently.
Overall, I am enjoying these new products! Have you tried any of them yet? What did you think?
