New from the Chanel Travel Diary Fall 2017 collection, the Ombre Premier Cream Eyeshadow in Memory ($36)
I don’t think I’ll ever leave California. I’ve lived here most of my life, and I can’t imagine living anyplace else, but if I ever do move, I’ll never forget the golden brown hills here in NorCal.
Blackie’s Pasture, Tiburon, California
You can really it in parts of the state with a lot of open space, like Blackie’s Pasture in Tiburon, where the hills and the pasture are covered by a carpet of golden brown from late spring till fall.
More golden brown deliciousness
Chanel perfectly captured that California golden brown in $36 Memory, their new Ombre Premier Cream Eyeshadow from the Chanel Travel Diary Fall Collection.
The shadow, like the rest of the pieces in the collection, was inspired by a road trip that Chanel Global Makeup and Colour Designer Luca Pica took across California with her friends.
I like using the Chanel Retractable Dual-Tip Eyeshadow Brush to apply Memory on my lids and lower lash lines.
The Ombre Premier cream shadows are Chanel’s line of potted cream shadows, and if you haven’t tried them yet, you gotta get on that ASAP.
I’m wearing Memory on my lids, Chanel Palette Essentielle in Beige Intense on my cheeks and Chanel Rouge Allure in Highway on my lips (they’re both also from the fall collection).
The Ombre Premiers are soft and have a bit of bounce to them, so they feel like spongy velvet and have a different texture than dense potted creams like the MAC Paint Pots.
That soft creaminess cranks up their blend-a-bility, so even if you don’t know a tapered brush from a domed brush, no problem. You can just use your fingers.
The pink ladies are baaaack!
I spotted them while I was driving home from the gym the other day. The pink ladies are pink lilies that pop up around the North Bay every mid-summer and early fall.
Gosh, aren’t they pretty? Even though they’re a reminder that summer is moving along, I always look forward to seeing them. And they’re *everywhere*. Some people plant them in their gardens, which is where I took these pics. They were in my neighbor’s flowers, and yes, I was creepin’ in their yard…but you mostly see them on the side of the road, even along the freeway.
You’ll just be driving along and see these gangs of pink flowers dotting the side of the road!
