With the camel coats and chubby knits of the fall collections arriving in stores, visions of soft smoky eyes and flushed cheeks are beginning to dance in our heads.
On the latter we’ve fallen for the new Nars eye and cheek palette Only You ($75). Packed inside a sleek and secure zip-up compact, the palette is armed with four fab shadows, including a metallic neutral, matte black, golden espresso and aubergine, and loaded with its Hungry Heart highlighter and Orgasm blush.
Perfect for popping in your purse, it’ll take you from Donna Karan by day to Alexander Wang after dark.

If Ross Rebagliati is going to run for office, then we think we’ll compete for Olympic gold. But is it cheating if we’ve already got the whole podium in a palette?
Made especially for the upcoming games, Vasanti’s “Go Canada!” eye and lip palette features three metallic shadows—gold, silver and bronze—with a snow-white highlighter and sheer red lip stain as an ode to the Canadian colours. But separate of any sporting event, the shades are right on trend and easy to wear.
That’s putting on your game face.
