Summer has been sultry and fun, and the start of the school year is just days away. I adore carefree days at the pool and having the freedom to do whatever I like on a whim. Then, the fashion magazines show new fall trends and I am infatuated with the season to come. I have purchased a few fun pieces for fall, like a slouchy cashmere toboggan and some killer rag and bone suede booties, to get myself in the mood. That being said, I am currently obsessed with fall beauty.
I read early in the summer of the marc jacobs beauty line that debuted yesterday. I was elated to grab my picks the moment they arrived on the shelf. I have to tell you that I am a major sucker for great packaging and design, and these products did not disappoint. I opted for a berry lip with the “seduce me” lip gel. The color is fantastic and the tube is genius in that is has a magnetic closure. I chose the enamored nail polish in “secret love,” a great eggplant, perfect for fall pedicures. For eyes, I went with the “magic marc’er,” in black, and the “Lolita” eye palate, a group of neutrals great for creating some fall smolder. The eye palate was a major design score and the mirror in it makes me smile just thinking about it. Lastly, I went for the “remedy” concealer, which had a lovely consistency and blended into my skin like silk.
My next purchases will be the bronzer, and the brushes. I can just imagine them on my counter in a repurposed diptyque candle holder. This brings me to my next happy find. Diptyque has released a scent diffuser and the design is beyond insane. There are no irritating reeds to gather dust or be fussed with. The bottle releases scent by the hourglass design. Brilliant!
Every season, I like to change up my cleansing routine a bit. This fall I am obsessed with the mild exfoliation of bobbi brown cleansing powder. The grains gently buff your skin smooth. In the fall, I tend to need a little extra moisture and I am going to use this facial oil, also from bobbi brown.
Here’s to the most beautiful fall yet!
