There are a few makeup items that I’m really dying to get my hands on this month. Without further ado, here they are:
1. Lancome has two products I feel like I must have. The first is their new Hypnose Doll Lashes mascara ($25) that claims to give you the doll-like look. What a beautiful way to describe lashes I would definitely want.
Y’all know I’ve always voiced my opinion that cheap mascara is the way to go, but I have a feeling this one might prove me wrong- just because their Definicils is one $$ mascara I have actually paid department store prices for and liked.
The second Lancome product, is their new red lipstick from their fall 2011 collection, St. Honore ($29) that was reviewed here by one of my favorite lipstick gurus, Michelle from Lipstick Rules. I know 40 bucks sounds kinda ridiculous for a lipstick, but from her review, kinda makes you think twice and that it just might be worth it!!
2. Onto one more lipstick…do you see a theme here?? J.Crew has teamed up with the real Lipstick Queen, Poppy King, for a universally flattering coral/red shade that is on the sheer side (which I just talked about how sheer is the way to go when wanting to look youthful here!). I was fortunate enough to get a mini interview here with this fine lady right when I first started my blog (how nice for her to take time out for a beginner blogger!). This tube is the only color offered, but apparently once you buy it, you wouldn’t need anymore choices, this is the perfect shade for fall.
3. Benefit’s Cha Cha Tint ($29) sounds like the perfect sister, or maybe cousin, color to the original deep raspberry Benetint I wore for years.
This product is the same idea of a stain with a fingernail polish- like brush to apply with, but is a more punchy summery sunny mango color! It sounds lovely and might be an easier color to wear for most skin tones than the original.
4. And one thing that was on my jewelry wish list (makeup for my fingers!), but I actually fulfilled it, is the big bold knuckle ring done in a hammered metal.
I remember coming across a pic of Vanessa Hudgens wearing one in a magazine like this above, but I couldn’t find one here in town that went quite as high up the knuckle as hers does. But the one I got will do!
I love it bc it has a bit of bling (fake of course!) in it.
What items are on your makeup or jewelry wish list this fall season? Is there a trend I’m forgetting??
