As of today and for about a week, the blog is in vacation mode! When this post goes live, I'll be on my way to Kaua'i where I'll be camping, hiking and snorkeling for about a week. Therefore, you'll be reading "lighter", shorter posts for a little while, and comments might not be approved or replied to for a week or so (if you've commented before, your comments will generally be approved automatically).
Today, I want to show you what's been on my makeup radar for fall. Fall in San Diego often doesn't start until Halloween, so I usually keep wearing my summer makeup faves late into October. I'm excited by the fall collections, but to be honest I have no desire to wear them right now in this heat (writing this with a sweaty face)! Not mentioned here is Lancôme fall collection, not that I'm not interested, but I haven't had a chance to swatch the products myself yet, neither have I seen swatches online. I might add some of their new releases to my wish list once I've seen more about them. Oh and there's also ColourPop, but there are so many things I want from them that I'll need to do one specific post!
Here are a few of the new makeup products that have caught my eye and that I'm considering purchasing:
Nars Fall 2015
Oaxaca Velvet Shadow Stick: a light taupe pearl. I fell in love with this color as soon as I saw the first swatches, but I'm torn... as pretty as it is, Christine at Temptalia gave it an F for being dry, not very pigmented and hard to blend. I quickly swatched it at a counter and it seemed OK to me, so I might see for myself by ordering from a retailer with a good return policy.
Pasiphae Dual Intensity Eyeshadow: a duochrome warm brown with green pearl. So pretty!
