Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eye and Cheek Palette Fall 2014

I’m always excited every season to see what Tarte releases. This Fall they have called their collection “Rainforest After Dark”. Oh my goodness, the packaging is so cute, except I wish they had used a monkey or something instead of a snake. I don’t like snakes.

Nars Hollywood Eyeshadow Pencil Dupe!!!!!

I’ve got some exciting news girlies!!!! If you have been watching my videos you know that I have a love/hate relationship with Nars Hollywood eyeshadow pencil. It made my “August Favorites and What the Heck” video. If you missed it here it is:

Anyway, I love Nars in general, but I hate their Soft Touch Eyeshadow Pencil formula.  The colors are gorgeous, especially Hollywood, which is a golden champagne color. However, the darn thing will not stay! It creases before it ultimately disappears, all within an hour of application. I tried everything, absolutely everything I could think of, to make the shadow pencil work for me. I used it with Nars primer, I topped it with powder eyeshadow, I put it over powder and finally I had some success putting it over wet mineral eyeshadow and topping it with Urban Decay’s All Nighter Spray. That’s a lot of work for a $24 eyeshadow pencil. Understandably I was on the hunt for a dupe and, I’m happy to report, I found one!!!
