Bobbi Brown for Fall - The Mauve Collection.

Bobbi's inspiration for her beautiful new Fall Collection:

“These shades were inspired by the covers of beautiful vintage books. Infused with hints of purple, grey and brown, mauve makeup is a cool neutral that’s very wearable.”


The new Mauve collection is gorgeous. Of course, the star product of the new line-up is the Mauve Face Palette. On counters today, the palette contains three Eye Shadows, one Blush, a Creamy Lip Color, a Lip Sheer and a Lip Color. The shades are all new, exclusives, only to the palette:  Navajo Eye Shadow, Vintage Eye Shadow, Chocolate Mauve Eye Shadow, Mauve Blush, Dusty Mauve Creamy Lip Color, Mauve Lip Sheer and Vintage Mauve Lip Color.


The rest of the Bobbi Brown Fall Mauve Collection:
Lip Color - Heather Mauve and Pale Mauve
Shimmer Lip Gloss - Black Pearl and Iced Mauve
Lip Gloss - Mauve
Long-Wear Gel Eye Liner - Black Mauve Shimmer Ink
Mini Brush Set - a must-have to apply the Face Palette products, the case includes blush, shadow and liner brushes

Though only July 1st and I am getting my Summer makeup routine down, I cannot wait to play with all the new Fall shades. These look especially beautiful. I am not so much of a purple person (it looks so wrong on me), but being more muted with gray and taupe, I am sure I can wear this collection well.

Stila SPF 20 Shine Lip Color for Super Summer Lips.

The scent of this yummy flavored lip shine is just the beginning. Stila's new SPF20 Shine Lip Color not only has the nicest Vanilla scented flavor (to make lips even more kissable), this lipcolor does double duty to protect lips from the Sun with it's SPF and leave them pretty too.


I told you how important it is to not forget the lips when protecting yourself form the Sun, and great lip color products are a plenty. But finding a good one, let alone a great one, is not as easy to find.

"SPF 20 shine lip color, is packed with healthy ingredients to beautify lips both inside and out. Vitamins A, C and E deliver maximum antioxidant protection, while rich vegetable-bases oils provide lightweight moisturization for the softest, smoothest lips."

There are eight beautiful sheer shiny colors to choose from. I am loving Keren - a sheer rosy brown, for a more natural look, and Talia - a violet pink, for a bit more color.

The formula is moisturizing in feel and longer-lasting than I thought - especially when licking my lips so often. Look at how beautiful the inside tube is too - such a surprise when opening the more simple, matte silver outer tube.

You can pick this SPF20 Shine Lip Color at Sephora on online at Stila Cosmetics.
