Rodial’s Glamtox Eye Light SPF 15 ($129 at www.rodialskincare.com) takes years off your appearance by reversing damage, reducing wrinkles, as well as firming and lifting your eyes. Wave goodbye to puffiness and dark circles!

Rodial turns out one great skincare product after another and their Glamtox Eye Light with SPF15 is no exception. I was just given a sample of Rodial Glamtox Eye Light and it feels great when you apply it, instantly calming and cooling puffy eyes and better yet helps my eyes look rested bright.  Tolook great in the New Year  start your look with Rodial Glamtox Eye Light the perfect base to any look.

Smashbox’s Eye Shadow Trios in Twilight and Panorama ($28 at www.smashbox.com) are perfect. Twilight consists of shimmering white, silver and black; Panorama has pearl, purple taupe, and eggplant shades. Whether you want dramatic or subtle, you’re set.

I am obsessed with Smashbox’s eye trios! I  was just sent some color samples of the Smashbox eyeshadow trios and I have been using them daily I think my other eyeshadows are getting jealous! My favorite has to be Microfilm I’m actually excited to get up each day and try a new look. The coordinated shades make experimenting a breeze I started this week using the matte brown as my base color with a green accent and am now using the gold and metallic green together with a hint of the brown. Every combo I try looks great and really opens my eyes. On top of truly vibrant colors the colors stay true all day!

Smashbox also helps you grab this look with its Waterproof Shadow Liner Duo in Smolder and Slate ($25). The cream shadow glides on smoothly and evenly, giving you the power to create soft, smoky definition in one quick step. The waterproof, crease-proof formula is the modern way to emphasize your eyes!

Yeah for Smashbox! I have always loved their gel liner and have found another eyeliner to covet with Smashbox Waterproof  Shadow Liner Duo.  When the sample showed up on my door I jumped at the chance to try it.  The cream is so smooth and glides on so easy it makes application a snap the color duo is all you need for a sexy smoky eye. If you have days that seem to never end this is the eyeliner for you! This stuff does not move, your eyes will look as great at bedtime as they did when you left the house in the morning.

Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palettes from Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy ($7.95 at drugstores nationwide) also let you to play up your eyes. Whether it’s the Storm Eye Palette, Ocean Eye Palette, or the Mountain Eye Palette, you can get that smoky eye in no time.

Quick tip from Carmindy: Simply apply the highlight shade under the brow and on the inner corners of the eyes. Sweep on the smoldering lid shade across the lid from the lash line to the crease and smudge a bit under the lower lash line. Finish off by applying the contour shade across the crease.

I have been really impressed with the new Sally Hansen Natural Beauty inspired by Carmindy. I have found some drugstore lines either irritate my skin or having no staying power. All of the Sally Hansen by Carmindy items I have had the luck of sampling have stood out from the rest. With great colors that stay vibrant all day and absolutely no eye irritation. The Sally Hansen eye trios are an affordable eyeshadow product that makes great looking eyes affordable at every price point.

If you haven’t tried Carmindy’s line for Sally Hansen get off the computer and run to the store! I have loved her makeup tips since I started watching What Not To Wear she is the perfect person to headline a new beauty line. My favorite thing about this line is how great it feels on. I was sent a few samples of the line to wear and fell in love such amasing products and a very affordable price which helps in this tough economy. I am wearing 4 of the 5 pieces from the kit right now and I can tell you they feel great on and I love how my face looks polished and pretty but not over done, I just can’t say enough about how much I love this line. Thank you Carmindy and Sally Hansen!

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy offers a wide variety of products for your Fall look. Additionally, Carmindy (of TLC’s What Not to Wear) has you covered with some great tips!

For example, smoky eyes are always a Fall favorite. For a quick and easy smoky eye, use the Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palette in Storm. The highlight, lid and contour shades make it easy to get a foolproof smoky eye in seconds. All you have to do is apply the highlight shade under the brow and on the inner corners of the eyes. Sweep on the smoldering lid shade across the lid from the lash line to the crease and smudge a bit under the lower lash line. Finish it off by applying the contour shade across the crease.

I am in love with the new Sally Hansen Natural Beauty line with Carmindy. While I think you can find lots of great products  at drugstores I am usually not impressed with drugstore makeup. In general there is always some major component missing in the cheaper version and they seem to wear off so quickly. I was happy to find the new Sally Hansen line not only looks good but feels good going on an last all day! 

I am in love with the  eyeshadows the color contour kits are fun and easy and my eyes look great all day. With the affordable prices you can afford to add a great blush and lipstick to get a fresh look for fall!

Here are a few of my favorite products from the new line:
