You are both very welcome for the reminders. I just typed out a very long reply, talking about Goulue, and it vanished into the ether. So I’ll keep this short – it’s a shame Goulue isn’t more widely available.

So true about Goulue 🙂

I wear anything all year round, but I have some things I favor more in fall. You know I can’t pick just one, because I rotate all the time.

Favorite fall blush? I think this year it’s going to be NARS Blissful. Last year it was NARS Almeria. UD Rapture, Sleek Pomegranate and theBalm Instain in Pinstripe always get a lot of use in the fall.

Favorite fall eyeshadow palette? ABH Modern Renaissance, theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony, Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts, Coastal Scents Fall Festival; UD Naked Smoky, UD Naked Heat. I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of the Coastal Scents Hot Pot palette I put together: Lots of reds, fuchsias, oranges, yellows, and greens.

Favorite fall lip color? New: I think UD Epigram and Voodoo, and SugarPill U4EA will be seeing a lot of use this fall. Other favorites: Bite Beauty Squid Ink and Kale; Notoriously Morbid Mystic Matte in Doppelganger; UD Perversion, 1993, Roach and Smog; LA Splash Catrina; Nyx Liquid Suede in Stone Fox and Vintage; MAC Halsey and gray lipsticks in general; blue, teal, and dark green lipsticks in general.

Favorite fall lip color? Chantecaille Matte Chic in Linda

Nicole Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Light, soon to be pale with yellowish undertones.

Favorite fall blush? Rouge Bunny Rouge Habanera.

Favorite fall eyeshadow palette? Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita quad or the Ciate London x Olivia Palermo Smokey Suedes eyeshadow palette.

Favorite fall lip color? I change my lip color almost every day, but if I had to choose I’d probably say either Ciate London x Olivia Palermo lipstick in Praline or Colourpop Lippie Stix in Poison.

Nicole Avatar

Thank you, I really do love it. They did an amazing job making that palette. I do as well, it’s such a stunning green for a smoky eye. I wish that it wasn’t a limited edition product-really the whole Olivia Palermo collab was done well.

Erica Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones MAC NC37 or Lancôme Teint Idole 24H Foundation N360, deep brunette, blue-green eyes w/ gold flecks.

Favorite fall blush? Something tells me that once I get my hands on Nars Blissful, that *will* be it! But, for now it’s Nars Goulue, MAC Burnt Pepper, and UD Bittersweet.

Favorite fall eyeshadow palette? A tie between Chanel Empriente du Desert and UD Vice 3 Palette.

Favorite fall lip color? MAC VG I, Taraji P. Henson VG 2 and UD After Dark.

Mariella Avatar

Empreinte du Desert – any good, is it??? 😉 I see you’ve also mentioned Nars Goulue. I got it as a VIB Rouge gift and for a time, the full size was available at Sephora but only to VIB Rouge but not any more…. My little pan is likely to last me a decade, which is good, but what are folks to do who really want it? Is it available through Nars, do you know?

Nicole D Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool/neutral undertone.
Favorite fall blush? Candid (from NARS Unzipped II) or Heather Pop by Clinique.
Favorite fall eyeshadow palette? It’s a toss between ABH Master by Mario and Gold Griot by UD x Basquiat.

Genevieve Avatar

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain with pink undertones

Favorite fall blush? This may sound strange, but I only use one blush – Natio Mosaic blush in Sunkissed (peachy, coral shades with a highlighter in it)

Favorite fall eyeshadow palette? Now that is a very hard question: Sephora It Palette in neutrals (for taupes); Dior 3 Couleurs Khaki, Lorac Pro Metals for colours, Dior Jardin for teal, UD Nakeds 1 & 2 for neutral browns.

Favorite fall lip color? Again, very difficult to nail it to one lipstick: Milani’s Cinnamon Spice, Candied Toffee, Tuscan Toast and Bronze beauty for browns; Maybelline’s In Style Sienna for Red/brown and Untainted Spice.

I love reading everyone’s choices. For me, I tend to wear similar shades year round. I find my love and penchant for smoky darker colours, has been surpassed by a preference for lighter to medium shades due to maturing face/skin. I go with a little darker lip, but def not vamp, pretty much smokier versions of my summer shades and typically matte finish. I cannot do traditional fall shades with heavy yellow/orange undertones: sallow central.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC20 light olive
Favorite fall blush? EL audacious plum, Hourglass Mood Light
Favorite fall eyeshadow palette? MAC Basic Bitch is working for me
Favorite fall lip color? ABH dusty mauve or dead roses

Polly Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-to-medium, somewhere between olive and neutral
Favorite fall blush: Becca Flower Child for warm looks, Nars Goulue for cooler/neutral looks and Marc Jacobs Flesh and Fantasy for everything
Favorite fall eyeshadow palette: ABH Modern Renaissance, the new Marc Jacobs palette in Glambition
Favorite fall lip color: Nars Vera (berry)

By preference, fall shades year round, but I tried to do summer, e.g. Lighter or brighter this year, so fall, come back at me with a vengeance! ~nw 15-20. Blush: fall makes me think MUFE. They have so many downright perfect warm/orange/rust family choices. Faves would prob be Canyon (for understated) and Copper Red (the blush, not the e/s, and yes, mufe does have two different shades with the same name in English, not same #) for shimmery. Other top fave is the Nars summer DI palette, which somehow was pried out of my summer fingers. E/S: will def pull out V3, thanks NT. The Chloe Morello haul will get a lot of use. Prob warm neutrals with Pro mega 3. Zoeva En Taupe And metal/matte. Lips: anything Nars dark or brown red. Same w/cp. Greiges from Mayb, ABH, Tarte. just realized that my faves don’t necessarily go together. What I put on is usually in the same color family. Prob all those brown red lips…they sound like one floor of a sorority… are why I needed the DI palette in the first place. And there’s plenty of yes, please, and mod ren to go with the mufes. And the greiges with the EnTaupe and mufe ash plum for draped blush. It just sounded so dyscoo, when the faves were written by category!

Logan Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair (elf Flawless Finish Foundation in Natural/Porcelain is a perfect match), warm undertone

Favorite fall blush? Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty (favorite blush ever!)

Favorite fall eyeshadow palette? Essence All About Roses (I normally don’t go for cool-toned eyeshadow, but this is so gorgeous and the product is such high quality)

Favorite fall lip color? Clinique Plum Pop (just got it last week in my Boscov’s Bonus Bag, such a beautiful color)

I wear the same makeup all year round, but there are what I’d consider the most fall-like products I use.
