This year, I've kind of been missing fall. Having spent the majority of my time in California since May, there hasn't really been any variation in weather. Do I even know what fall is anymore?? (Dramatic, I know.)
When I think of this time of year, I think of the trees and crisp air. I always loved watching the leaves change color, into those bright oranges and deep reds, so today's blush pick is inspired by those colorful leaves I'm missing. I would have picked an orange blush to go with the leaves, but that seems so summery. Plus when I think of fall blush, I think of deep reds - something that I'm missing from my blush collection, though I suspect I had some perfect ones in my Nars stash a few years back... Anyway, I'm all for cream blush when the weather turns dry, and Stila Convertible Color in Poppy seems to be just right this time of year.
I love applying the color heavily on lips - as this formula doesn't feel drying or anything - as shown in the swatch above. Shown blended out to the right, it becomes a bit of an orange-y red on my skin. Kind of perfect I think! It is easy to apply quickly with fingers, and lasts all day on me too. Plus, I could sure use a bit of color this time of year. :)
