total saturation

With the abundance of fall colors — you know, black, gray, brown — showing up in fall fashions, the logical place to look for a way to add some impact is in your eye shadows. MAC Cosmetic’s new Matte2 eye shadows offer a high percentage of pigment in totally matte shades such as Prussian (deep sea blue), Post Haste (bright berry pink), Newly Minted (rich sea green) and Fig.1 (eggplant purple). Your peepers take the place of statement handbags and shoes with this look. Matte2 eye shadows, $14 each, MAC Cosmetics

L’Oréal Paris decided to tackle your skin’s biggest problem, weakness, with its new Skin Genesis. Made with a revolutionary anti-aging active ingredient, Pro-Xylane, using green chemistry and 100 percent naturally derived ingredients, Skin Genesis is the holistic approach for the woman who doesn’t embrace radical procedures. The product is so good that it won an Allure Best in Beauty Award this year. L’Oreal Paris Skin Genesis oil-free lotion, $25, drugstores

shoes wisely

One look at these beauties and it’s clear to see why Mary J. Blige told the world she’s got “Giuseppe on the heels” on her last album. If you want the same bragging rights to these smashing boots you better move fast — only 100 pair exist. And, you’re not the only one who will dig the black silk and suede design draped in black Swarovski crystals. An added bonus: Giuseppe Zanotti himself personally autographed each pair. Giuseppe Zanotti limited edition design, $2,290, available by reservation at Giuseppe Zanotti
