Not Your Mother’s Rise & Shine* and Knotty To Nice* – Both of these products have been complete holy grail items for me. Knotty To Nice is a great leave in conditioning detangler for when you get out of the shower. I spritz a good amount all throughout my hair and brush through. No tangles! And for Rise & Shine, I use this product after I’m done curling my hair and it gives you the most amazing shine. It doesn’t leave your hair sticky, but instead makes it soft & smooth. Both smell incredibly delicious as well! Buy : Rise & Shine – $8 / Knotty To Nice – $8
Batiste Dry Shampoo in Wild* – I am all about that second day hair! This has easily replaced my Psst! Dry Shampoo. It smells great and works AMAZING. I seriously need to try all of the other scents from Batiste! Buy : Batiste Dry Shampoo – $7.99
Nume 32MM Magic Wand* – Where has this been all of my life? If you are in the market for a GREAT curling wand, look no further! NUME has got you covered. They have several different sizes and styles for all your curling needs. I chose to go with the larger 32MM barrel just because I like bigger looser curls. It goes up to 450 degrees and comes with a protective glove as well. I can now curl my hair in less than 15 minutes. AMAZING! Buy : numeproducts.com – $200 – Use code missglam for $110 off your purchase!
And just to show you, here is a pic of me with my hair curled using the Nume wand!
Michael Todd Pumpkin Face Mask* – I recently was able to test out a few products from Michael Todd and I have to say, I was nervous. There was SO much hype about them so I had high expectations. Now I don’t ever want to go back to my old skincare routine. The pumpkin mask makes my skin feel SO soft and lively. And best of all? It smells just like you shoved your face into a pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. hahah! I know this was in a few Ipsy bags, so definitely give it a shot! Buy : Michael Todd – $34
(Disclaimer – The makeup brushes you are about to see are filthy and have not been washed in a week. At least you know I’m truly loving them right?)
Sigma Flat Kabuki F80 – I’m pretty sure I mentioned this in a past favorites video, but I am still enjoying my Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki. The perfect brush to apply liquid foundation with. It makes your skin look airbrushed and flawless! Buy : Sigma Beauty – $18
It Cosmetics Foundation / Concealer Brush* – Even though this is supposed to be used for foundation, I am loving it even more for applying concealer! I use the larger side to blend under my eyes and the small side to blend around my nose. Absolutely perfect! Buy : It Cosmetics – $48
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – This was a total impulse buy this month and I am so glad I pulled the trigger! I’m in the shade Medium1 Custard for those of you wondering. It’s creamy, applies like a dream, brightens your face and covers the heck out of dark circles. Now I know what all the fuss is about! Buy : Nars / Sephora – $28
Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara – There are so many mixed reviews / thoughts out there about this mascara, but I am happy to say I LOVE it! I love that it’s dual ended.. one for your top lashes and a teeny tiny baby wand for your bottom lashes. It gives me just the right amount of volume, thickens and doesn’t clump on me. Score! Buy : Drugstores / Ulta – $9
Physician’s Formula Bronze Booster – I’m pretty sure this was a “Youtube Made Me Buy It” purchase and I can’t remember who I have to blame for it. Either way, THANK YOU. It’s a perfect matte bronzer that doesn’t make you look orange or muddy. And the packaging is super pretty! Buy : Drugstores / Ulta – $10
MAC Pinch O Peach Blush* – I don’t know where this has been my whole life. What a STUNNING blush color from MAC. It’s the perfect color and will be a great transition color into Fall as well! Very soft, buttery and just perfect pigmentation. Buy : MAC / Nordstrom – $21
It Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Face Disc – I did an entire review on this product HERE, so I won’t go too much into detail. If I’m in a hurry, this has been my go to palette. Blush, highlight & bronzer in one make for a happy girl! Buy : It Cosmetics / QVC -$38
Stila In The Light Palette – Another impulse buy! I have been DYING to get my hands on Kitten eyeshadow and instead of paying $18 for one shadow, I decided to just splurge and get this gorgeous palette! The three colors I have been gravitating towards as you can see are Kitten, Sunset & Bubbly. SO impressed by all of the colors & pigmentation with this palette. Unbelievable! Buy : Sephora / Ulta – $28
Swatches of my Favorites!
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Anarchy* – Another product I talked about in depth HERE. I absolutely cannot say enough great things about this new line. They are all so buttery and creamy and last FOREVER. I will have more swatches from the line coming up soon so stay tuned! Buy : Sephora / Ulta – $22
Shiseido RS320 Lipstick* & Armour Purple Rain Gloss* – I stumbled upon this amazing lip combo purely on accident one night when I was going out. I put on Shiseido RS320 which is a gorgeous purple / pink lipstick and just wanted to top it with a little something. So I grabbed armour beauty lipgloss in Purple Rain and it was a match made in HEAVEN! Both are incredibly easy to wear and left my lips moisturized throughout the night. Buy : Sephora – $25 | Beauty.com – $21
Taylor Swift ‘Taylor’* – Once again T. Swift has released another fragrance! I was so pumped when this landed on my doorstep. It’s fruity yet floral and is definitely more grown up than her last two scents. The bottle is simple, yet unique and definitely represents Taylor perfectly. Absolutely love it! She’s amazing. Haters to the left. Buy : Sephora / Ulta – $50
Only a few fashion favorites to share with you! First off, I am LOVING building up my Alex & Ani collection! They are so fun and you can get discounted ones at TJMAXX & Marshalls!
Ellie Double Decker Capris* – Since I began Nutrisystem, I have been obsessed with doing pilates and finding awesome workout clothes. I recently discovered Ellie, a workout clothes subscription service! Each month for $49.95, you get 2 pieces of extremely high quality workout gear! I have been living in these Double Decker capris. I’m posting a stock image because mine are currently in the wash! They fit like a glove and are SO comfy! You can click HERE to get 20% off of your first purchase!
Speaking of working out, I am 100% obsessed with Blogilates. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a youtube channel run by the beautiful Cassey who is a licensed personal trainer. She makes fun workout videos, recipes and much much more. It makes working out FUN again instead of dragging on! Her videos are usually between 5 and 10 minutes so they are perfect and don’t drag on. Cassey was sweet enough to send me this adorable hoodie! ‘Train Like A Beast, Look Like A Beauty’. Thanks Cassey for motivating me! xo
And last but not least, I cannot leave out my incredible Tieks!* I never knew what the hype was with these and why they are pretty pricey, but now I understand. They are AWESOME. They mold exactly to your foot and are incredibly comfortable to walk in. They do only come in whole sizes so I would recommend going up a size if you have a semi wide foot like I do. Here are mine in the cream color! (Ps. Can we just talk about how adorable this photo came out?)
I absolutely cannot leave out my two new favorite ladies on YouTube!
Dani > CoffeeBreakWithDani
Rachel > GlowOfGrace
Both of them are absolutely gorgeous and their videos are top notch. So glad to have found them! xo
