Now that my birthday has past, I’m finally ready to talk fall makeup. I don’t know what it is but I’m never ready to talk about the next season until we are actually there; call it trying to live in the here and now.
Anyway, I’m quite excited about the products hitting us now for fall and will be running an on-going feature of Fall Product Picks, which will be obviously designated by the below logo.
What kinds of products are you most excited for this fall?
I feel like the ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Modern Mercury Fall 2011 Collection is really playing with the big boys when it comes to creating possible cult favorites. It’s all about metallic metals, a soft shimmering canvas and edgy matte lips and these made their runway debut at the Derek Lam Fall 2011 shows.
Quite a few awesome items in this collection and below are the ones getting two thumbs up from me.
Pure Color Liquid EyeLiner in Graphite ($21) – a deep hematite or pewter with shimmer. And it lasts for hours, which is half of its sex appeal.
Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee ($40) – I am absolutely in love with this powder. Such texture and depth but I guess that’s what you get when you combine a powder, liquid and gel. Use it wet or dry for two different affects. I’ve been using this one under the brow bone and even on bare lids.
Pure Color EyeShadow Duo in Black Chrome ($30) – using their exclusive True Vision Technology, a matte grey and shimmer grey will help you get the deepest, darkest smoky eye possible.
