Individual Eyes Custom Compact ($4.99 each) 
 "These sultry shadow collections are specially coordinated to intensify and enhance your eye color. With a formula that contains nourishing Vitamins A and E, with Green Tea extract, these silky powders blend smoothly and evenlyEach shade can be worn alone or blended, and kits include a double-ended professional applicator and step-by-step instructions to help you create your Halloween look."

I used the "Hate The Light" palette for my eye look below (and also in the above pictures with the lip sticks). These shadows are pigmented and easy to blend-- very shocking for something so inexpensive!

There are also some new nail accessories coming out as well from for holiday! There are new cuticle oil pens (which are amazing and handy to keep in your purse on the go) in Raspberry Vanilla & Chai Tea.  Also releasing are limited edition holiday themed vinyl nail  decals:

Here's a quick snowflake look I did using the vinyl nail decals:

To use the decals, you apply your base color (white, in this case) and allow it to dry COMPLETELY (this step is imperative). Once fully dry, you place your vinyl nail decal where you want your design to be and then paint over your nail using your second color (here I used black). Using a pair of tweezers, gently lift off the nail decal, leaving your cute holiday design behind!

There are a few more polishes in this collection that can be previewed on KBShimmer's website here.  
This collection officially launches on November 1st!  Which ones get you in the holiday spirit?!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
