Hands down, our favorite season is fall. What’s not to love? Cozy sweaters and boots, leaves changing color, pumpkin spice lattes and of course, fall makeup collections! While we are savoring summer (especially Carla, since Seattle totally spaced out on the heat wave the rest of America got!), we’re looking forward to incorporating the best of fall beauty into our makeup routine.
Lancome’s Fall 2011 Collection has us excited! Isn’t the campaign image chic? The collection is named after the original Lancome boutique in Paris, 29 St. Honore. Love the red lips and red nails, courtesy of Bang Bang Red Polish. Don’t you see it as a perfect holiday shade? I’m going to Paris in October with my husband, so I’m feeling the need to snap up some of these items — especially the Eiffel Tower imprinted blush!
Estee Lauder’s Modern Mercury Pure Color collection created by Tom Pecheux has its fair share of chic going on as well. But it’s not the red lips and semi-smokey eyes that I’m drawn to; rather it’s the stunning Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée. A must-have! Other highlights include a new Velvet Lipstick formula and that oh-so-complex green/gold Pure Color Nail Polish.
Bobbi Brown’s Fall 2011 Tortoise Shell collection is about standout eyes, just like a great pair of glasses. In fact, it’s inspired by her dark-rimmed glasses! Bobbi may forever have the market cornered on eye shadow palettes that you compulsively just need. Because, quite simply, I see a need for both the Bronze and Sand eye shadow palette. The shades are ideal for anytime of the year, and hey, I wear glasses, too!
Any standouts from your perspective? Let us know!
