lobal Goddess Beauty, celebrity makeup artist Shalini Vadhera’s own beauty line, is launching even more exciting products this fall—namely, its new Darling Darjeeling Collection. Named after the world’s most expensive and exotic tea, this collection has everything you need to glam up your eyes—without the exotic price. And, as a bonus, check out the Darling Darjeeling cheek color, too!
Divine White Tea Infused Eyeshadow, $18
Trade Secret: You wear eye shadow to make your eyes look hot, but with this new product, you’re doing them (and yourself) a favor, as well. White tea is China’s quintessential anti-aging secret—it comes from the silver tip of the green tea plant and is one of the strongest anti-oxidants in the world. Best of all, it reduces puffiness and firms the eye area. This shadow comes in four gorgeous colors:
Makabari: Sizzling rust
Shambala: Iridescent peach
Kumaon: Mysterious rich brown
Darjeeling: Sultry champagne pink
Shalini’s Tip: For an easy, everyday eye, sweep the Shambala shade all over—from lid to brow. The peach tones will warm up the skin and make your eyes sparkle.
Define Kohl Eye Pencils, $16
Trade Secret: These sultry eye pencils are key to brightening and defining your eyes. And with three different colors, they’re perfect for every occasion.
Sapphire Stone: Rich, deep blue
Chai Tea: Warm brown
Indian Ink: A true black
Shalini’s Tip: Sapphire Stone was created as my secret weapon against hangovers, allergies and days you feel like crying. Rim the inside of your eye with this liner to instantly brighten the whites of your eyes—it’s a trick I use on all of my celebs.

Exotic Eyes Blackest Mascara in Blackest Black, $23
Trade Secret: Your search for the perfect mascara has come to an end. This new product is perfect for desi eyes and comes packed with lash-nourishing mowrah butter so your lashes are enhanced with extra oomph. Mowrah butter comes from seeds of the Madhuca tree, native to central India.
Shalini’s Tip: Coat the top and bottom of your last for extra-lush looking lashes. A lot of us forget that the top of our lashes need mascara, too. Remember, fallen eyeshadow can make lashes look dull.
Chai Cheek Color Blush, $20
Trade Secret: Infused with green tea and ginseng, this blush will enhance your natural glow. The anti-oxidant rich green tea will protect your face from free radicals that can cause aging, while the ginseng stimulates blood circulation, leaving your complexion naturally rosy.
Shalini’s Tip: Use the Chowrasta (a sweet pink) or Mirik (a sun-kissed nectar) just on the apples of the cheeks for a healthy glow, while the the Sattva is a great contour color—perfect for sky-high cheekbones.
