NARS has finally added an eyelash curler to its line of makeup!

Like all NARS products, the eyelash curler comes in a sleek signature black matte finish. The curve is slightly flatter than my Shiseido and Shu Uemura curlers but it fits perfectly on my eye and gives my straight Asian lashes an instant boost. It is super easy to use, never pinches my skin and it weighs a lot less than the Shiseido and Shu Uemura curlers too! I have been using this every day and I love it!

The NARS Eyelash Curler is available at NARS Cosmetics for $20.

The 25th Annual MTV Video Music Awards took place at Hollywood’s Paramount Studios last Sunday and this year, the red carpet is all about being sparkly. Stars like Mel B, Ashley Tisdale, Audrina Partridge and Britney Spears all dazzled in glittery, beaded and metallic dresses and can I just say Britney looks gorge in that dress?!

Bustier dresses (as worn by Pink, Rihanna and Paris Hilton) and second-skin satin (on Lindsay Lohan and Katy Perry) were also a big hit among the stars.
