Makeup By Mario Ethereal Eyes Palette

Makeup By Mario Ethereal Eyes Palette

I’m thrilled to see more neutral eyeshadow colors out this year and I love the new Makeup By Mario Ethereal Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($68, available at Sephora and Makeup By Mario). It has 12 new shades with a mix of mattes, sparkly toppers and one finely milled shimmer.

I like a good sparkle topper and think the sparkles work well when applied with fingers in a patting motion. I did experience a lot of sparkle fall out when applying it but it’s easy to clean up and throughout the day I didn’t have much fall out after.

Holiday Gift Ideas from Nordstrom

Jo Malone and Diptyque Room Sprays
Room sprays are such a great way to refresh the home. They are a nice alternative to candles and I finally splurged on the Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin Room Spray which is a classic fresh clean scent. It’s one I think is a signature Jo Malone scent so unique and lovely.

I’m a huge fan of Diptyque Room Sprays too. They have very good throw and the scents have a high quality feel to them. Baies is a classic blackcurrant and rose scent I think everyone will love but Gingembre is fun for the holiday season.

The Squeaky Clean Lip Liquid Balms are smooth and non-sticky. They have a nice moisturizing feel with a natural glossy look. They adhere well to the lips though without feeling like they’ll slide off. Colors pull on the sheer side in terms of pigment for the lighter and neutral colors. Deeper bold shades have more color payoff.
