Happy Halloween!!! October has definitely been a crazy month!! Ive been mad busy working on my masters thesis and starting my research so my beloved blogging has been put on the back burner. But I’ve definitely been giving love to all my wonderful products and this month I played around with a bunch of new things. So keep reading to see all my favorite beauty products during the month of October…
Since autumn is upon us and the cold is creeping in my lips have definitely been nice and crispy… gross!! My Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla Macadamia has been a true god sent. I apply it every morning and evening and it definitely soothes, smooths and hydrates. Its completely clear so I slather it on real thick…plus it smells delicious!!
Ive been loving my deep and rich shades for the lips but I’ve also been loving the NYX Butter Gloss in Merengue. Its been my hand bag staple. Its so easy to apply without a mirror and looks great with almost everything. (Click here to check out a full review with swatches of the NYX Butter Glosses). My face gets so dry during autumn and winter so I like to use light foundations like BB creams. The Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream is great. It evens out my skin tone and provides light coverage without clinging to my dry patches.
I love me some highlight on the cheekbones. I feel like it really perks up the complexion. The RiRi Hearts Mac Cream Color Base in Diamonds is amazing. I love to sweep it on the top of my cheekbones for a natural glow. (Click here so see swatches of the collection).
Now for the eyes. I’m always switching it up since I have a lot of pallets that need attention but Ive really gravitated towards the The Barry M Dazzle Dust in nr. 98. Its perfect for a smokey eye and the pigmentation is insane. I also love the color shifting properties. Using different bases will bring out the more blue tones or make it look more black. Love it!!
I always have trouble with eyeliner staying put on my bottom waterline (even when I pat it down with some eyeshadow to lock it into place!!). It always just disappears in a matter of minutes. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Covet Eyeliner Pencil in Noir has been my best friend. It glides on smoothly, it’s pigmented and stays put for a good few hours which is amazing for me!!
Well those were some of my favorite beauty goodies from the past month. The holidays are now around the corner which means fun gift sets and palettes will be hitting stores. I cant wait to get my hands on some of them.
