Fall Color Preview

On this beautiful, and hot, summer day it is hard to imagine that fall is just around the corner, but these fall color palettes make the idea of crisp weather more than bearable. Some are a little spendy, but I've thrown in their budget equivalents for those of us with lighter wallets.

Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No.7 Plush in Tease
Marc Jacobs' new palettes and lip gloss for Sephora are beautiful and rich. This lovely palette in "Tease" features bright purples and deep smoky hues--perfect for fall.

Down side: $59. Yes, it is a definite splurge. With richly pigmented color this is worth it--if you have the money.

Revlon Photoready Primer, Shadow + Sparkle 
Alternative: Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow palettes. They come with bonus eye primer for those of us that need the color to stay all day and a sparkle overshadow or "topcoat". They come in several shades, including this purple palette "Watercolors". Only $ 8 at most drug stores.

Marc Jacobs lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl
Marco Jacobs lip gloss--sorry, lip "vinyl"--promises shimmery color and a healthy champagne-grape infusion. Comes in 5 fantastic colors including this one in "Studded Kiss".

Down side: Price again. The lip vinyl comes for $28 at Sephora stores and online. Ouch. 

Burt's Bees Lip Gloss, courtesy of the Dermstore
Alternative: Burt's Bees lip gloss. Know for their natural products, this gloss is no exception. Nourishing with omega fatty acids, this is great for your parched fall lips. The colors are also amazing, like this one in "Starry Night". It also won't break the wallet at about $8.99 at most drug stores. 

So get those fall colors going and enjoy the changing of the seasons!
