Lancome's new Cushion Highlighter for Holiday 2016: review, photos, swatches

A shiny gem in Lancôme's Holiday 2016 makeup collection, called Paris en Rôse, the new Cushion Highlighter brings together two of the products we've seen trending this year, the highlighter and the cushion compact. With its unusually short and to-the-point name, the Cushion Highlighter needed a long subtitle: Highlighter Cushion Compact Absolute Weightlessness & Glow. Sounds interesting, doesn't it? Let's see how absolute a glow it creates and if it's really weightless!

The Fall Makeup Edit

fall lipstick highlighter eyeshadow palette blush

After a break last week for a short vacation to New Orleans (it was fantastic, I can post pictures if you'd like!) I'm back today for a Fall makeup edit. It's still very warm here in San Diego, so getting into autumn fashion and makeup isn't easy... that's why this little selection of my favorite products for the season is coming a whole month after fall officially started!

I've made quite a few makeup purchases over the past couple of month, and they're joining my long-time pumpkin season favorites in this list of my fave picks. You'll see me wear them and mention them a lot in the next few months!

You can click on the product names for online retailers and prices. I've also included swatches at the bottom for everything but the eyeshadow palettes I've already reviewed (you can click on the review links to see those swatches). Let's take a look!

An Introduction to Colleen Rothschild Beauty: Radiant Cleansing Balm and Face Oil No9 + 20% off code!

PR Samples - Affiliate Links

I'm not sure exactly when Colleen Rothschild launched her skincare line, but I started noticing the brand in blogs a couple years ago. I was immediately attracted to the simple yet elegant, gender-neutral packaging and the realistic claims backing the product. I also like to support female entrepreneurs when I can, so a few of her products have been on my wish list for a while. But you know what happens with wish lists, newer and shinier products or sales always get you sidetracked... As you can imagine, I was really excited when the brand contacted me to try a few of these exact products!

What I look for in skincare are great formulations that bring visible results, products that I enjoy using, and packaging that is functional and minimalist. This is exactly what Colleen Rothschild does, so I can say that the brand is right up my alley! Colleen prides herself on creating a line of carefully curated products that provide real results thanks to science-based formulas and offer a luxurious sensory experience. It sounds fantastic, but do the products really deliver? Let's take a closer look at the products I received, the Radiant Cleansing Balm and the Face Oil No9.
