I already said it a few weeks ago, but I really don’t like the fall season. Dropping temperatures, shorter days, rain,… I don’t need that, you can just give me summer all year around. But what I do like about fall are the new make-up collections. Sisley already make me long for fall a bit with the new L’Orchidée Rose Highlighter Blush, and now Smashbox does the same with its new Fade To Black fall collection. Check it out!
Smashbox Fade To Black Eye Shadow Palette in Fade In
The Smashbox Fade To Black collection has two eyeshadow palettes that each contain seven shades that gradually go from light to dark. Hence the name Fade To Black. Today I am showing you the Fade In palette that contains the following colors from left to right: matte light beige, matte taupe, shimmery taupe, matte chocolate brown, shimmery olive green, matte grayish brown and sparkly black.
This palette in one word? Amazing! I really like everything about it. The sleek long packaging with the cool ombre effect, the choice of colors, the mix between light and dark and matte and shimmery,… Love, love, love it. The texture of the eyeshadow is silky soft, there is no fall-out and the pigmentation is great. With a good eyelid primer underneath the eyeshadow stays put the whole day. The colors are totally me and are perfect for that smokey look I like so much. Maybe autumn is my season after all?
Smashbox Fade To Black Be Legendary Lipstick in Cognac & Black Cherry
Smashbox is adding two new shades to the Be Legendary Lipstick line this autumn: Cognac, a warm nude, and Black Cherry, a deep berry shade. I like both colors, but not on me. I like emphasizing my eyes and I usually wear bold eye looks, and I just don’t think dark rich hues like these two go with that. I think they are more for girls who wear more subtle eye make-up and who like to put the focus on their lips.
Both new Smashbox Be Legendary Lipsticks are very creamy and they keep my lips well hydrated. And they last. With a little touch up here and there you will make it through the day without any problems. Nice!
The new Smashbox Fade To Black collection will be available in September and will be sold exclusively at Marionnaud. The Fade To Black Eye Shadow Palettes will both cost 68 CHF and the two new Fade To Black Be Legendary Lipsticks will cost 26 CHF each. There will also be two Waterproof Shadow Liners in the collection costing 26 CHF each.
What do you think of the upcoming Smashbox Fade To Black products? Do they make you wish for summer to end yet?
