Prescriptives Well Suited fall collection reminds me of Dior’s fall collection last year and a slew of others. The inspiration is menswear and fabric. Once again, masculine chic is in this fall: vests, fedoras, button ups. It’s a bit dandy, Garbo, and 70’s Charlie Girl all in one. I’m not complaining, I love this look for fall fashions. Well Suited collection has those perfect shades for fall and since it is Prescriptives there is a compact/color for all complexions, eye colors, hair colors. The focus for this collection is on the eyes. All limited edition items come in a tweed like packaging. All items are available at Prescriptives.

EYES: There are 3 Eye Compacts that retail for $40. Each compact contains 5 eyeshadows. The Warm compact contains shades of warm beige, warm medium brown, soft olive drab, warm dark brown, and a calm ocean teal. I really think that this compact would be very flattering on blue eyes since the warm shades will provide a nice contrast. The Cool compact contains light pink shimmer, dirty mauve, dusty grey, soft burgundy plum, and a rich eggplant. I think this compact would look amazing on hazel and green eyes. Those cool plum shades will make the green stand out. The Neutral compact contains a light beige, cool light brown, deeper brown shimmer, lead pencil grey, and a matte black. This compact should go with all eye colors. There are 4 shades of the new Long Wearing Kohl Liners. It is like a kohl but with a retractable tip. It retails for $17.50 and comes in Black, Slate, Brown, and Blue. Evidently this liner is supposed to wear nicely on the inner rim of eyes because it is waterproof and smooth. (I never do this, my eyes are too small as is). Lash Envy Mascara has been relaunched for the collection.

LIPS: There are 4 shades (3 LE) of Colorscope Lipcolor for $17.50. There is Posh Honey (creamy latte cream), Posh Ginger (warm copper shimmer), Posh Nude ( a super soft mauve cream), and Posh Pink (creamy light plum berry). Obviously, the lips are sheer/nude for this collection. My favorites are Posh Honey because it is a great lipcolor that goes with a smoky eye and Posh Nude because it is so “everyday”.

FACE: There is a Finishing Powder in Translucent for $28. It is a sheer shimmer pressed powder complexion perfector.

After many years of mascara usage I have finally came to the conclusion that I really do not look good in volumizing mascara. Don’t get me wrong. I love a heavy handed mascara application, it gives just enough of a trashy look but I’m not wild about “mascara”. For years, I have been searching for that perfect one. I even tried match.com and online dating services but they had nothing to offer me either. I’ve finally learned that I am a false lashes kind of girl. If I want extreme long clump-free lashes then I must apply the strip. There is no getting around it. Final.

Anyways, I have been using Clinique High Impact Volume Mascara in black. (You see, it came in a gift or something.) It does not flake or irritate my eyes or anything like that. It just makes my lashes look like they are wearing mascara. There are clumps and my lashes appear shorter. The weight of the mascara really drag my lashes down even after curling. The brush is flipping huge. I like stab my pupil daily with this massive brush. I know that people that love volumizing mascara are all into size. They love a big fat brush. This is one of the many reasons why I disliked Diorshow. I’m not dissing this mascara. It is OK, I guess if you like volumizing mascara. But, I don’t and suggest if you like volumizing mascara then don’t take advice from me. I’m back to hitting the adhesive.

I’m still searching for my HG mascara even after using Chanel Exceptionnel Intense Volume and Curve Mascara in Smokey Black. This is not the mascara for me. First off the wand is really hard to use. I’m a makeup artist, I’m supposed to be a little talented and applying mascara should be easy. This brush has “combs” just like Lancôme Fatale and then normal bristles like most traditional mascaras. However, the normal bristles are really short and don’t really touch the lashes. You are supposed to “twirl” the mascara from the lashline for a clump-free look. I twirled, I curled, I did it all and still had really clumpy lashes. It deposits lots of product because of the combs. The formula dries thick and brittle. The worse thing is that it flakes like mad all over my face. All day I find little black things all over my face and even on my chin looking like man whiskers. The mascara is very hard to remove at night and I use Lancome Bifacil and still can’t get it off. I have to use two rounds of Lancome’s eye makeup remover. The combs aren’t good at separating lashes. I have to use a traditional spoolie over this to define my lashes. And they call this brush innovative… This formula does add volume but it looks very unnatural and does have flaky fibers. Even though I dislike this mascara, I would recommend it to those that like Lancome Fatale or other thick comb mascaras. And I would recommend it to people that like “thick” mascara-ish looks, the looks that look like lots of mascara, not lots of lashes, mascara. This look was popular a few falls ago. Overall, I’m disappointed. This is not good for my everyday life. It takes too long to apply and looks really bad on me. This is a $28 mascara and I should of stuck with Chanel Inimitable. I haven’t found my HG but I know that I want separated lashes. I know that I need a “wetter” formula and a brush that is not like the one of Exceptionnel. I think I’m going to trade mine for Inimitable.
