Forget Going Green, Go Grey for Fall 2009

To see where my obsession with all things gray (or grey, however you like to spell it) for Fall ’09 started, check out the grey mascara trend from one of my previous blogs.

Now that you’ve checked that out, we can continue here with my love of all things grey in: eyeshadows and nail polish.

Nailpolish :: I might be a little late on this OPI nailpolish bandwagon, but a girlfriend of mine (Thanks Meg) let me borrow the popular “You Don’t Know Jacques!” ($9) and I’m definitely in love. This color is a creamy cross mix of deep gray, a touch of lavender, and taupes – all swirled into one perfect autumn nail color. You can check out my toenails in this pic below to see the richness of this great alternative to the blacks and dark purples of old. And if you’re perplexed by the color name, it’s from the France collection, hence the name Jacques.

Eyeshadow :: Dior Jazz Club Couture Eye Palette ($65.00) contains all the shades of grey a girl could ask for, and it’s all contained in a fashionable black patent clutch. This “have it all” clutch contains

  • one black eyeliner
  • a brow shaping powder
  • and 4 different shades of shadow

The shades include the above mentioned pewters and dark gray’s plus a white for highlighting the browbone. This seems pricey for shadows but the container/clutch has Dior’s name on it…so it’s worth it, right??

So here’s what you tell your girlfriends now starting now with this gray trend, “Go Grey or Go Home!!”
