Newest, Latest, and Greatest -- Fall NEEDS vs WANTS

Posted by STETSON CREATIVE Wednesday, September 15, 2010

As many of you know, Fall is the time when companies release new products, just in time for you to harness the fall trends.  Some of these things will make your fall wardrobe, and others will break your fall budget.  Today, I will be looking at the seasons hottest new makeup....some of which you may NEED and others you just WANT.

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick $25 - Saks 5th Avenue www.saks.com
This brand-new super rich, ultra pigmented lipstick provides bold, long-lasting color without drying out the lips.  Infused with wild mango butter, it glides effortlessly across the lips for a smooth finish that feels more like a lip treatment than a lipstick.


VERDICT - NEED!
Lip color is one the seasons hottest trends and going matte is the way to go, and the moisturizing properties protect against the chilly fall weather.

ESTEE LAUDER Blue Dahlia Shadow Collection $42 - Estee Lauder www.esteelauder.com
The blue/grey palette of this eyeshadow compact is right on trend with this seasons colors, working well with the royal colors seen in the fashion world.

VERDICT - WANT!
This palette doesn't work with everyone's eye color, and unless you are really daring, the bright teal shadow is hard to pull off without looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show.

TEMPTU Under Eye Concealer $28 - Temptu www.temptu.com
This innovative concealer's inner core is formulated with diamond dust for the ultimate in under eye highlighting. Vitamins A, C, E, and K, work with cucumber and aloe to moisturize, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles.

VERDICT - NEED!
Whether you have had a long night out, or just need that extra lift...this concealer is a must-have for fall!

LANCOME Aquatique Waterproof Eye Colour Base $24.50 Lancome www.lancome-usa.com
This eyeshadow primer leaves eyes perfectly primed to keep eyeshadow firmly in place all day (or all night).

VERDICT - NEED!
Whether you are at the office or hitting the clubs, waterproof eyeshadow primer is a MUST for keep your look flawless and fresh for hours.

YVES SAINT LAURENT Teint Radiance Foundation $48 - YSL www.yslbeautyus.com
A light to medium coverage foundation with SPF 20 sun protection offers perfectly radiant coverage for even skin that stays flawless all day long.

VERDICT - WANT!
While everyone wants flawless skin, and this foundation is wonderful...it may not be worth the nearly $50 price tag.

D.J.V. Beautenizer Fiberwig LX $24 - Sephora Stores www.sephora.com
This second-generation Fiberwig brush on false lash boasts "film-coating" technology for a more natural look, even than traditional mascara and the added bonus of vitamin B5, silk extract, and natural botanicals for a healthier lash.

VERDICT - NEED!
I was very skeptical at first, as brush on falsies tend to be clumpy and messy, but after using this product, I am convinced.  Not only is it a great quality mascara, but it really does extend the lash with a completely natural look.  I won't go as far as to say they are as dramatic as false lashes, but instead a booster for your own, natural lashes!
