Eyes

 

  • Christian Siriano Silky Eyeshadow in Sahara(nude), Sandstorm(copper), Oasis(green-blue), Royalty(rich chocolate), and Gilded Fierce(black with gold sparkle) - The five fabulous shades will give you a multitude of wonderful looks for fall, all inspired by the richness of Egypt. The textures of the eyeshadows are extremely satiny and the color is very pigmented and rich so you won't have to use half of the pan to get the color you need. You'll be able to create so many different eyeshadow looks with these from simple to dramatic. Christian's favorite shade in the group is, of course, Gilded Fierce for its bold color and sparkling accent.
  • Christian Siriano Kajal Eyeliner in Eclipse(bold black) - Inspired by an ancient Egyptian beauty ritual, the Kajal eyeliner is a richly pigmented kohl liner that glides on smoothly and smudges easily, giving a fabulous smokey look. The eyeliner itself is beautiful in its dazzling golden case, while the liner itself glides on with the easy of a simple stroke. Think liquid pen eyeliner, but without the liquid mess. Wear alone or with shadow to create a more dramatic look.

Christian Siriano Lip Gloss in Embrace(champagne), Sublime(warm coral), andChic(deep berry) - Christian's Lip Gloss comes in three fabulous shades, one in each color category so everyone can find at least one to suit their color palette.
