An easy way to transition your summer makeup look to something more fall appropriate is by shedding your sheer lipsticks, lip tints, stains, and glosses to something creamier, more full-coverage, and BOLD.
That’s where Mehron’s L.I.P. Cream comes in. It’s available in 16 highly-pigmented, gorgeous shades available as singles ($8 each) or an 8-shade L.I.P. Color Cream Palette, available in two color options ($40). The colors are so versatile they work with every skin tone and can even be blended for custom colors all your own. They have long lasting coverage and built-in hydration so they won’t dry out the lips the way some long-lasting and matte lipsticks do. You can expect soft, supple, and gorgeous lips all day long.
Mehron has a cult following for a reason: the products are outstanding. Because Mehron caters to the entertainment, fashion and theatre crowd, their products are long lasting and intensely pigmented.
Top makeup artists Nick Barose and James Vincent are brand fans, as well as numerous celebs including Pink, the Black Eyed Peas, and Hillary Duff.

Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Envy collection is a thing of beauty.
The less expensive cousin to Lauder’s Tom Ford fabulous makeup collection, the quality and colors are spectacular. First came the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick; creamy, dense colors that feel glam and last well at $30 each (TF is $50). The look and feel is not a perfect match, but it comes pretty close. The texture makes your lips look plumped and perfected with 26 shades of wonderful. It is by far the best and most sinfully elegant Estee lipstick I have ever used.
New for Fall are the eye enhancing Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eye Shadow 5-Color Palette ($50) collection. Also similar in quality to TF, these luxe powders glide on in a perfect ten to die for palettes that flatter every skin tone. Currant Desire is the perfect compact to usher in autumn – brown sugar, pinky shimmer, neutrals and wine. Fierce Safari has sultry golden, bronze and olive tones. Each palette is neutral with a pop of color and mix of matte and glimmer to customize your look for day and live it up for evening.
The rich textures and wearable shades are what make Pure truly special. Treat yourself. You deserve it – and you can afford this.

If you’re already in love with Clinique’s Chubby Sticks for lips and eyes – and who isn’t? – you’re going to positively flip over the newest addition to the chubby family. Clinique launched a new Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm ($21) for a blast of glide of color and contour to enhance your cheekbones.
These creamy little cheek colour sticks give you an instant glow with minimal effort. The look is natural and healthy-looking, and it’s practically goof-proof. Two swipes – one on each cheekbone – blend with fingertips and you’re done. There are four neutral shades to choose from – Robust Rhubarb, Amp’d Up Apple, Roly Poly Rosy and Plumped Up Peony. These are all very wearable and suitable for most complexions, except perhaps for very dark skin types. We are huge fans.
If you like your cheek color in a compact instead of a stick, Clinique also has their bright new Cheek Pop ($21) collection on offer. These pretty little bold colors go on smooth and last long. Choose from Plum, Berry, Ginger and Peach Pop. It’s a light powder that blends easily with a blush brush or just your fingers. Sooooo pretty!
