Here are some of the hottest new products to hit the market!  I need to make a trip to Sephora, these bad boys are calling my name!

Natural Lip Stain with LipSurgence™ Technology by Tarte is a natural lip stain that is clinically proven to increase lips’ moisture content by 6000%.

After 10 years the wait is finally over. These much-anticipated natural lip stains are an extension to the best-selling and award-winning cheek stains. Just like the iconic cheek stains, each emotive, peppermint-infused shade smoothly glides on lips for a natural flush that will stay all day. So say goodbye to reapplying your lip color throughout the day and say hello to a gorgeous pop of color and hydration that lasts.

The old meets the new with the infusion of our high-performance natural LipSurgence™ technology which is clinically proven to increase moisture content by an astonishing 6000%. This proprietary blend effectively increases skin’s water content for a ‘plumped up’ appearance leaving lips defined, smoothed, and hydrated. The result is naturally fuller, healthier lips without any irritation or stinging. Like the cheek stains, each shade of these natural lip stains will leave a natural hint of tint that will last throughout the day. These shades are great to wear alone or pair with your favorite tarte lipgloss. This product is free from gluten, animal testing, formaldehyde donors, oil, talc, MEA/ DEA/ TEA.

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!

The cream shadow glides on smoothly and evenly, giving you the power to create soft, smoky definition in one quick step.

Yeah for Smashbox!

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.
