Jouer Metamorphosis Palette, BY TERRY Hyaluronic Tinted Powders, a Flattering Fall Dress and Some CosBar Favorites

Introducing the *Jouer Metamorphosis Palette
I hope your September is going well! In addition to the profound joy of motherhood and teaching college, I have been swamped with tons of work --from serving as host at the International Congress of Esthetics this past weekend in Long Beach and tenure committee meetings (I finish in the spring!) to beauty events (there's a brilliant new La Prairie eye cream) and lots of writing, the first half of this month has been a hectic delight. 

Today, I am excited to share a few stunning new launches, including the *Jouer Metamorphosis Palette, *BY TERRY Hyaluronic Tinted Hydra-Powders a random dress discovery and some favorites from Cosbar, just in time for its Fall into Beauty campaign (now through 9/14). 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of everything in natural sunlight as well as the Bottom Line...

The *Jouer Metamorphosis Palette
Rife with classic and wearable shade designed to be all one needs from day to night, the *Jouer Metamorphosis Palette is a transforming wonder. Buttery and blendable, the six eye shadows come in a balance of matte and satin finishes and the neutral pearl highlight and radiant pink blush jointly deliver instant life to the face. If you love neutrals with a twist (the radiant gold bronze and soft thistle hues are genius), then the *Jouer Metamorphosis Palette is a must for the coming months. The shades, which flatter a spectrum of skin tones are absolute effortlessness. Additionally, for every palette purchased now through 10/10/19, 15% of of the net proceeds will be donated to the Chrysalis Organization!

In conjunction with two new shades of the ultra-hydrating *Essential Lip Enhancer Shine Balm in the deep cheery Mariposa and cool baby pink Monarch. Both tones feature sheer but buildable color and a rich and shiny finish...I like mixing them together for a customizable pink with plenty of depth.

All three pieces can be purchased as a bundle, too.

Newness from BY TERRY!
Next, I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the *BY TERRY Hyaluronic Tinted Hydra-Powders since hearing about there impending arrival a few months ago. This brilliant spin on the cult-classic translucent *BY TERRY Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder features a tinted veil of coverage (in eight shades) that blurs pores and sets makeup without the slightest hint of typical powdery dryness, making them apropos for all skin types including mature skin and dry skin. 

The formula is revolutionary to say the least and, when extra time allows me to feel inspired,  I start with a dime-sized amount of the smoothing *BY TERRY Hyaluronic Hydra-Primer and then use the *BY TERRY Dual-Ended Face Brush to apply 300 Medium Fair as an all over setting powder, shade 1 Rosy Light under my eyes and shade 500 Medium Dark as a contour tone around the perimeters of my face. 

The powder are truly like a perfecting filter that keeps make in place for hours on end and I will be featuring their application in my next video tutorial...stay tuned!

*Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation
I have been wearing the *Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation (initially reviewed HERE) nonstop as of late; its medium coverage and ability to perform flawlessly for 10+ hours has made it a default option for me as it's been hot and my days for the past week have been very long with little to no time for touchups. 

After purchasing my initial bottle, I recently received two more shades from Beautylish and am excited to share side by side swatches for those of you who may share my skin tone (@NC 25-27). While 7.5 Neutral has been my perfect late-summer (the tannest my skin is going to be) match, 6 Neutral (which is a touch lighter and more yellow) and 5.5 Neutral (which is even lighter yet still olive in undertone) will be befitting options for me as the temperatures drop and my skin gets lighter. Hope the swatches of this phenomenal formula are helpful!

The complete look. 
// THE COMPLETE LOOK //
  • *Sisley-Paris Double Tenseur: I love this primer as a lifting and firming base for foundation...it's lightweight and truly does something special to the skin. 
  • *Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in Almond: Just a sweep along my orbital region masterfully hides the lack of sleep I've encountered lately...it's a holy grail for many for a reason! 
  • *Jenny Patinkin Domed Multi Blender Brush: I keep this brush in my makeup bag as it adeptly works for blending concealer and shadow alike. 
  • Hourglass Bronzer in Radiant Bronze Light: This bronzer easily ranks amongst my top three favorite formulas as it applies like velvet, looks natural and never turns orange. I applied to the perimeters of my face and along the hollows of my cheeks. 
  • *Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick in Chouchette: Ahh...this new shade in the Baby Cheeks lineup is pure bliss. The lush pinky peach tone instantly brightens the face while making skin look subtly lit from within. I also love using it on eyes and even lips for a monochromatic effect. 
  • Pat McGrath Lipliner in Done Undone (reviewed HERE): This lip liner is my dream color as it lets you over line inconspicuously and it pairs well with every shade in my repertoire. Get it...you won't regret it. 
  • Tom Ford Gloss Luxe Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Ravish and Love Lust (also available at Beautylish): After many request from BP readers to review this new lip gloss formulation, I settled on and picked up two shades that embrace my love of neutrals (Ravish) and baby pinks (Love Lust). The formula is sublimely hydrating and only a touch sticky (which doesn't bother me...tack lends to longevity of wear in my experience) and the color applies sheerly though both of these shades are milky enough to be seen on the lips. I highly recommend both of these shades and can't wait to try some more! 
  • *Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo: A generous spray of this miracle formula into my second-day hair and bouncy volume is restored...it's a lifesaver in both the travel and full sizes and smells divine. 
  • *Makeup bag via Cosbar: Currently, Cosbar is having a Fall Into Beauty event, offering this chic and roomy makeup bag filled with 16 deluxe samples with every purchase of $200 or more. This promotion runs only through 9/14 so act fast to replenish your beauty and skincare must-haves.

Style notes featuring the Madewell Dot Smocked Shoulder Dress
// STYLE NOTES //
  • Brown Tee Shirt: I rarely wear brown but the casual cut of this tee called to me and I love it for an easy dose of fall warmth. 
  • Madewell Dot Smocked Shoulder Dress: Compelled by the color and the price (it's on sale!) I bought this dress in a size 4 without even trying it on and am so glad that I did! The fit and flare styling is classic and the length on my frame (I'm 5'9") is totally work appropriate. Can't wait to dress this up and down. 
  • Slip Silk Skinny Hair Ties: I always have at least one of these on my wrist as they hold hair in place without causing damage and breakage...so good. 
  • Tissot Lovely Bracelet Watch: Still my daily go-to, this watch is the perfect fusion of jewelry and functionality.
