While many beauty lines have debuted their fall makeup, a few brands are still promoting summer looks. Gucci Beauty has been a huge hit since the beginning and I got to try a few items from the S/S 2015 lineup that originated from the main collection. These colors are a great transition to early fall, as well as covering any year-round looks.
The Magnetic Color Shadow Duo ($49) in 10 Aristocratic was featured in the Gucci Cruise 2016 runway show. Matte earth brown is paired with satin grey purple. The purple is gorgeous alone but when used with the brown it's an elegant daytime look. I'm also impressed with the pigmentation and payoff; the texture is buttery smooth and you don't need much to get it to show on the eyelids.
The Sheer Blushing Powder ($49) is just as pigmented, if not more. A gentle swipe is all you need to pick up the right amount of color. The 10 Spring Rose is a fresh delicate pink that is flattering on many skin tones. Even in this heat wave the color held up quite well, fading just a bit. I didn't have to use a primer to lock it down! And, the brush that comes in the compact is really soft.
For the lips, the Vibrant Demi-Glaze Lip Lacquer ($32) is amazing. The 200 Dark Romance is a deep plum that works as a sheer berry glaze with just one swipe, or layer on top of lipstick for a more dramatic fall look. It's not super high-gloss, giving just the right amount of shine. The 10 Mistique White adds a hint of clear iridescence to any lip color, or wear it alone for a subtle sheen. Both shades are non-sticky and the chocolate scent is barely detectable. The Dark Romance can last a while as a lip stain effect. Love love love.
