Weekend Roundup - September 4

It's time to wear all of our fall makeup! OK, most of us cheated. The makeup introductions for fall are exquisite. How could a self-respecting beauty blogger wait for an arbitrary date like Labor Day? There used to be a rule that we couldn't wear white after Labor Day! Comment if you still follow it. I'll bet we have more rule breakers than takers.

Here's a spin around our favorite beauty blogs to introduce fall - in all of its splendor - and remind us that the best summer favorites are seasonless.

Kari kicked off our fall theme with Five Products for Transitioning to Fall. Head over to Fab over Forty to find her recommendations. How many do you have in your beauty wardrobe?

Gaia took a short break from gorgeous new fall colors (and her incomparable fragrance reviews) to write about a concealer she loves. Gaia knows that we need to prepare our complexions for our beautiful new makeup. She shared her application tips at The Non-Blonde. While you're there, read about "naked lashes." Does this fall-winter trend have legs...or eyes? Not in my opinion!

Anne is celebrating fall beauty with Shiseido! Check out BeautyXposé for a fab feature on Shiseido's stunning fall collection from Dick Page. Who could resist those eye shadows? This weekend, I plan to "give in" and purchase Snow Shadow, a trio I resisted on my first pass.

Dolce & Gabbana's makeup is hard to find. See what Sabrina selected (with help from Nikki at Saks Houston) from the fall collection at The Beauty Look Book. Don't you love it when you find a great phone friend to help you select the perfect shades? You have to stop by to see Sabrina's selections.

Kelly has been showing us the best of summer at Gouldylox Reviews. Both of her favorite discoveries for cheeks will take you right into fall! Can you read about H2 Glow Natural Highlighter Cream without placing an order?

M∙A∙C's new Fabulous Felines Collection for fall has been a blogger darling for weeks, particularly among cat lovers. Get the full scoop on the Superslick Liquid Eye Liners from Marcia at Beauty Info Zone Blog.

Super-shopper Laurie at Product Girl found a darling Clinique gift with purchase at Bloomingdale's. Clinique has some great looks for fall, including new shades of Vitamin C Lip Smoothies. Why not get a gift when you pick up your favorites? The GWP includes an Allure favorite paring for fall - pink and chocolate.

How are we going to organize all our new purchases? Our pro, Vicki, let us in on her new "secret" at Makeup Artist Backstage.

I wrote a love letter to Edward Bess here at Best Things in Beauty. Edward creates makeup with a sense of place, and his irresistible fall colors for cheeks are inspired - and inspiring. I'm holding out on you too. I have a few other "new-to-me" Edward Bess beauties to show you.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a Bare Escentuals Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow. The contest ends tonight at midnight.

It's summer; it's fall. Enjoy both seasons while you can! Happy Labor Day weekend! We hope you have a fabulous holiday.

I always get a good laugh out of that old chestnut, don't wear white after Labor Day. In Southern California, where temperatures can hit the triple digit category well into October, you better beleive we're still wearing white after Labor Day :-)

Eileen, I can't bring myself to wear white shoes most of the year. After Labor Day? Nope.

"Winter white" is my excuse after December.

I am so conservative! Maybe that Virginia rule would be knocked out of me in a different climate. Good for you!
