The theme for September is Fall beauty. So naturally I wanted to provide some swatches and a review of one of my fave brands, essence Cosmetics! Every month or so, this brand releases what they call Trend Editions. For Fall, they have put out some real eye-catching shades in the Dark Romance collection, which is what I am sharing with you today.
Quattro Eyeshadow Palette in A ROMANCE TO REMEMBER – These four shades work really well together! The purple is a matte (although it looks metallic in this pic) as is the taupe. The silver and green are metallics that are buttery and soft.
The eye look I created has the purple on the lid, green in the outer corner of the lid and the silver blended from the outer V into the crease. I used the taupe to blend and soften out from the crease up to the browbone. Under my brow and in the inner corner, I used a bit of the cream highlight (stay tuned for more on that one).
The blush texture was a bit odd to be, but I like it. It can be hard to even out if using your finger so I suggest using a stippling brush. As for the highlighter, it is GORGEOUS. It can be a bit slippery on non-primed skin so make sure to set it or wear primer.
Lipgloss Effects in BLACK SHADOW – Grey lipgloss with multi-chrome shimmer. It is supposed to be worn over lipstick to darken and add sparkle. I believe they released something similar previously in the Twilight collection.
I predict dark jewel-toned eye looks and rosy cheeks this season, what are your Fall beauty predictions?
