Gorgeous, glittery and dazzling are just a few words to describe the new Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadows ($20.00 each). Moondust is like no other shadow. Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle are infused with intense hues and lush 3-D metallics for an overall effect that is just glorious.
Each color has a really luxe, upscale vibe and a gorgeous diamond-like effect. As soon as they launched at Sephora, I noticed many of their cast members swatching these seven new über sparkly shades… and I wanted in!
Once again, a super-secret formula was created …
There are now forty ways to get addicted to the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($19.00) from Urban Decay! I don’t ever remember seeing such a vast array of colors before! No wonder. The relaunch of their award-winning 24/7 liners now makes it one of the widest eye pencil assortments ever.
Thirteen brand-new shades were added, so the options go from mattes, to satins, to shimmers and sparkles. There are vivid brights as well as shimmering metallics. From micro-sparkles to matte, there is a shade to satiate your taste.

Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes Show Off ($6.99) is definitely one of the better mascaras from drugstores as of late. Rimmel is always at the cutting edge of both trend and function.
This mascara is different due to its brush and the deep, black pigment in the formula. What sets this product apart from others in the mass market is the unique ball shape at the end of the wand. This ball shape claims to give a clump-free look to your lashes.
As I applied the mascara to myself, I would have to agree; …

When it comes to our makeup application, applying mascara has always been the quintessential finishing touch. But, it can sometimes be tricky to get those pesky bottom lashes evenly coated without flaking, smearing or fading.
We talked with BeautyStat’s very own Erin Sutera and celebrity makeup artist Bruce Grayson, to give us some prime tips to keeping our bottom lashes looking clump-free and gorgeous!
Giving your bottom lashes a coat of mascara is key: “Top and bottom [lashes] really open up the eye,” says BeautyStat senior writer and makeup artist Erin Sutera. “But …
Milani never disappoints when it comes to their color ranges and on-trend products. They just introduced this Grandissimo Lashes in Black ($5.49) and the application brush is so big!
Bigger is better when it comes to adding mega volume, and this mascara creates a false lash effect. It’s smear-proof, non-clumping and paraben-free, too. Lashes are all the rage, as so many brands keep on expanding their mascara categories. Kudos to Milani for the affordable price, too!

I spy a trend here! Felt-tip liners are all the rage, as they allow you to create quiet and bold looks just by application. Milani has launched Eye Tech Bold ($7.49) in Black. I have reviewed ones from Stila, Dior, Smashbox and this one is just as easy-to-use!
What is nice about it is that with the felt-tip point you can really control the line — whether you want a thin line along the lashes or a more bold, thicker cat-eye, this product, like the others, delivers.
I love holding these as …
Summer collections are starting to roll into stores — and this one will make you feel like a GODDESS! Estée Lauder introduces BRONZE GODDESS Summer 2013 Collection, and I can already feel the warmth from the hues of the products. This collection was inspired by the sultry shades and exotic senses of the Caribbean; I find myself daydreaming about Parrot Cay at this very moment…
Turn up the heat through a spectrum of summer shadows with NEW Limited Edition Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in Batik Sun (pictured/sampled). This palette …
Love the curve of the applicator, and, knowing how much I wear DiorShow, I was over the (full) moon to give the New DiorShow Iconic OverCurl Mascara ($28.50) a go!
The “Wave Curl” brush was inspired by hair and lash curling tools used by professional stylists in order to capture each lash from root to tip. I normally slant my applicator wands to get a better “hold” on my lashes, so this “Wave Curl” seemed to fit my lashes more naturally and went on more organically — as it hugs each and every lash.
