First of all, how insanely adorable is this makeup bag by Pamela Barsky? You can purchase this bag and MORE at her Etsy shop HERE
Lush – Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser – Oh.my.GOSH. I am absolutely in love with this cleanser! First off, it smells like warm cinnamon apple cookies that just came out of the oven. I love the way it makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. You only need a PEA size amount that you mix with water to form a paste. I have a feeling this is going to last me a LONG time! Buy – $28.95
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir – I’ve had this fragrance for quite some time now and knew it would be a perfect scent for Fall & Winter. Notes include : Ripe berry, honeysuckle & sandalwood. It smells absolutely DIVINE and the bottle is so stunning! I highly recommend if you’re looking for a new winter scent! Buy – $70
NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation – I was a little skeptical about this foundation at first only because my dry skin + a cream foundation like this is a nightmare. It took me a few tries to get the perfect shade and the perfect tool to use with it. I’m currently in the shade Light 3 GOBI which is a PERFECT match for me! I found the best way to apply this is with a Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki. It really blends it so nicely onto the skin. The only downside I guess is you have to buy the compact separate from the foundation. Granted the compact is only $10, but why not just make it a package deal!?
Inside you have a HUGE mirror, a place to pop your foundation in and out and a spot for a sponge. It provides just the right amount of coverage and can also be built up without looking cakey. Buy Here – $38 / foundation & $10 / compact
LORAC Unzipped Palette – I did an entire blog post complete with swatches and a detailed review so I don’t want to go too much in depth, but I have been using the crap out of this palette! If you want to see the full review, you can click HERE
Laura Geller Beauty Eyeshadow in Toasted Almond – When I’m not using the Unzipped palette, I’m most likely reaching for this single eyeshadow from Laura Geller Beauty. Toasted Almond is a baked flambe eyeshadow and is so incredibly pigmented and gorgeous! It’s so easy to just swipe on & go! Buy Here – $24
EM by Michelle Phan Pinched By Pink Blush / Bronzer Duo – I have been testing out so many Michelle Phan products and her blush / bronzer combo palettes are so awesome! If I’m in a rush, I can just grab one of these instead of going through my whole bronzer & blush drawer. The pigmentation on the bronzer is really great – The blush could be better. I really have to swirl my brush in there multiple times to get color on my cheek. I like that it has the potential to be buildable, but for the price I think the pigmentation could have been a tad bit better. I’m also a sucker for this packaging! It is so sleek & pretty! Buy Here – $28
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector – Rose Gold – This is the mother of all highlighters! First off, rose gold. Need I say more? This limited edition highlight from Becca is absolutely STUNNING. Stop what you’re doing and buy this!! The texture is unbelievably soft and it creates the perfect glow to your cheekbones. Did I mention it’s rose gold? Buy Here – $38
MAC x Riri Hibiscus Kiss – I don’t know why I’m JUST pulling this out when it came out months ago. Plus I might have 2 of the exact same product in the rose gold packaging, but that’s besides the point. Much like the Michelle Phan duo, the bronzer in here is great but the BLUSH! That blush! It’s the perfect pink and so pretty! Unfortunately, I don’t think you can get this anymore unless you stalk swap groups or ebay 🙁
Benefit Gimme Brow – I got a sample of this in my Benefit / Ipsy swag bag and heard mixed reviews. Some people loved it & some hated it. Me? I LOVE IT! It’s like the lazy mans brow product! It comes with a teeny tiny wand and basically all you do is brush it through your brows and ta da! Perfect brows! It seriously looks like you spent hours working on them! Another perfect product for a mom on the go! My only complaint is that there is not very much product for the price. Hopefully they will consider making a larger size! Buy Here – $22
*MAC – Most Popular – Another discontinued item. SORRY! This lipstick was from the Hello Kitty collection and is a great fall color! Super easy to throw on when running out the door.
*EM Cosmetics – Posh – If you are planning to buy anything from the EM line, BUY THE LIPSTICKS! They are insanely awesome! Super creamy, they last a long time and are highly pigmented. They come in a wide range of colors as well! Buy Here – $16.50
*City Color – Fuchsia & Hot Pink – Don’t feel like spending a ton of money but still want quality? City Color Cosmetics has great lip products as well! The two colors I have been rocking all month have been Fuchsia & Hot Pink. Both are so so creamy and gorgeous! And insanely affordable! I believe you can find these at Rite Aid as well as citycolorcosmetics.com (They are on sale for $1.99 right now!)
