It’s holiday party time! — but if you’re a busy gal with too many emails to answer and a to-do list longer than your arm, getting ready to party may be the last thing on your mind. If it is, perhaps NARS Night Star Eyeshadow can help.
Now, you know me when it comes to wearing color on my eyes — I love it! But I also like the versatility of neutral shades, and that’s the side of me that $23 Night Star excites. An eyeshadow single in the NARS permanent line, it’s a sheer peach with a golden glitter kick — a perfect pick for office parties this time of year.
When I want to brighten my lids and give a golden sparkle to my eyes, this is the color I grab.
I realize that it’s not easy to gauge how the glitter captures the light in the pics (I tried!), but I think the shade is much more sparkly in person than it appears here. This is one of NARS’ quieter colors, and because of that it probably won’t appeal to everyone, but if you have a thing for sheer neutrals with flecks of mid-volume golden glitter, give NARS Night Star a try.
I’ve heard from some makeup lovers who have issues with fallout while wearing Night Star, and I’ve experienced it, too. I get my best results with it when I wear it atop a very sticky primer, like a MAC Paint Pot (Soft Ochre’s my fave to wear with this shade), and apply it by patting the shadow on my lids with a finger, instead of a brush.
And then if a little glitter does happen to go astray, it’s usually isolated to the tops of my cheeks, luckily looking like a highlighter that I purposefully placed.

In Detective Stabler news…
First, good morning and happy Tuesday, beauty lover. Second, be still my beating heart! There’s talk of Christopher Meloni, former Law & Order SVU hottie Detective Stabler, being courted by HBO to star in True Blood.
Um, are you kidding me!? Please let it be! Whoever came up with this idea deserves a big hug and a medal.
I could see Chris taking on the role of a blood-boiling vamp. Homeboy would rock a set of fangs! I know that I’d gladly offer him a vein (well…).
