The limited edition, all-in-one palette features: cream to powder black liner, brow shaping powder, four eyeshadows and a top coat. The major selling point of this palette (which just so happens to have the chicest packaging eva) is the topcoat. In the tray, it deceivingly looks like shimmering snow, but it applies super sheer.
When you layer it on top of shadow, it goes all Emeril on you. BAM…in an instant, it kicks the color up a notch by imparting a sparkly, iridescence. Use the topcoat with any of the palette’s shadows – or in tandem with the any of the shadows in your makeup arsenal. I swear – it gives old products new life.
Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette and your lids should make beautiful music together. Don’t fight fate. Pick it up now at Nordstom.
As you probably know, today is the official kickoff of New York Fashion Week, Spring 2010. In fact, I’ll be traveling to NYC on Saturday to attend Fashion Week events and report from backstage. But before we move forward, let’s take a look back to Fashion Week, Fall 2009. Last spring, I went behind the scenes at some of the hottest shows – and noticed some emerging trends.
Last week, I appeared on the NBC 10! Show to talk about five of the fiercest beauty trends for fall – and introduce viewers to must-have products to help them nail the looks.
Watch and learn…
In honor of my latest TV appearance, I’m giving away a selection of the products featured in the segment!!! One lucky winner will receive:
