Hobo Bags At Shopbop

These Hobo Bags from @Shopbop have caught my eye! Here are eight gorgeous hobos you need to check out this fall!

The hobo bag is back in a big way for fall 2016!  I was browsing at Shopbop and wanted to share these eight beautiful choices with you!   Click HERE to shop at Shopbop to shop these gorgeous bags! Keep reading for the full details on them all!

1 Grace Atelier De Lux Bohbo Hobo Bag $1,195– I’ll admit this gorgeous bag is a bit of an obsession for me right now.  The shoulder strap features a gorgeous braided design that carries through to the top closure strap and ends in tassels.  The sides have minimal fringe, and inside is one large zip pocket and one tiny card holder for your favorite credit card. Featured here in black leather, the bag is also available in two different neutral shades.

2 Marc Jacobs Gotham Hobo $495– I love this shade of Bordeaux for fall!  This bag features a lean profile, so if you prefer a hobo that’s less bulky it’s a great choice.  It’s adorned with a double J hanging luggage tag, and has a removable shoulder strap.

3 Rebecca Minkoff Isobel Hobo $295– This chunky little hobo fits snugly beneath the arm, and can also double as a satchel!  The minimalist design features two long braided tassels that drape over the top.  Interior contains one zip pocket, and three open pockets for organization.

4 Furla Luna Hobo Bag $648– This pale neutral hobo works with anything, and is such a classic!  The bag has two straps fastened by a golden button on each side, so it’s very versatile!  If you’re using the shorter strap, the long strap hangs fashionably below the bag.

5 Tory Burch Perry Hobo Bag $395– This slouchy hobo is pebbled leather and boasts a roomy interior!  Inside are two pockets, and an unexpected gold metallic interior!

6 Marc Jacobs Maverick Hobo $550–  This gorgeous blue hobo bag features a large, flat outer pocket and a magnetic top closure.  Also available in a tan leather.

7 Kate Spade New York Mason Hobo Bag $458– This streamlined hobo has a long double-tassel embellishment on the front.  An inside magnetic closure keeps your possessions safe.  Inside are one large zip pocket and two open pockets for odds and ends.  Featured here in black, it’s also available in a pale putty shade that is seasonless!

8 Rebecca Minkoff Darren Hobo Bag $295– The gorgeous olive-neutral color of this bag was what caught my eye, and what kept me hooked was the price tag!  This beautiful hobo bag features a gold-toned turnlock closure and some very simple fringe details.

NARS Dolce Vita, Outlaw, and Luster Blushes

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogLooking for some great blush colors for fall?  I was gazing lovingly at my NARS Pro Palette and these three shades lept out at me as perfect for the autumn season!

Show above from left to right:

Dolce Vita– described by the brand as a matte dusty rose, to me it’s more of a bold berry pink

Outlaw– very similar to Dolce Vita, this blush features a frosty golden finish

Luster– described by the brand as a sheer golden apricot, in my eyes this shade is a versatile bronze that can be used as either a bronzer or cheek color

MAC Highlight The Truth Mineralize Skinfinish

press-sampleThe name so nice, they sent it twice! The MAC Taraji P. Henson collection contains TWO different Mineralize Skinfinish shades.  Each is intended to harness the glowing complexion of Taraji P. Henson.  You know I’m a long-time fan of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, and it’s actually one of my all-time favorite MAC products.  As a result, I’m always happy to try a new shade of this favorite formula, especially one as universally flattering and seasonless as Highlight The Truth.

Now, BOTH of these compacts were sent to me by MAC and each features a different name.  But I’m thinking these are both MAC Highlight The Truth.  MAC Taraji Glow is a much darker shade on their site, and looks to be a deep terracotta brown shade.  The brand describes Highlight The Truth as a soft bronze coral with golden shimmer.  To me it looks like a luminous apricot.  It’s an ideal “straddle” shade as we close the summer season and head into fall, and truly looks amazing on any complexion.

Retail price is $33 per compact.

The collection also contains MAC Matte Lipstick in Strip Me Down- $17, Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash Mascara- $23, Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack- $21, and a 187 Duo Fibre Fach Brush- $42.

MAC Liptensity can be ordered directly from MACCosmetics.com! Other retailers that carry this line are Nordstrom.com, Bloomingdales.com, Macys.com and Saks.com.

press-sampleContouring is all the rage, and the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Contour Palette puts the look solidly into almost anyone’s budget! These adorable palm-sized palettes contain two shades, one for contouring and one for highlighting.  Clueless about contouring?  No problem!  This product comes with an easy guide to defining the cheekbones and the nose!  The colors in each palette are perfectly coordinated to work well together.  It takes all of the guess work out of application!

Each L’Oréal Infallible Pro Contour Palette contains a 50/50 split of contour color and highlight color.  The  palette comes with an adorable little brush for on-the-go application, although my advice would be to use better brushes at home, especially for the contouring part of the routine.
