byAlegory Lipgloss Organizer *- My love for byAlegory products is so deep. They have the BEST acrylic organizers on the market right now and they are incredibly affordable. I recently received their lipgloss holder and it is AWESOME. There are 3 rows, so it fits a total of 24 glosses and comes in a great assortment of colors. I have 2 sets of these and one holds my Gerard Cosmetics glosses and the other holds eye brushes! I have also seen some girls use theirs for storing MAC lipsticks upside down. If you are looking to get your makeup stash in order, I highly recommend checking them out! Buy Here – $23.99
Smashbox Heatwave Palette – I swear I have had this palette for MONTHS and am just now getting around to using it. Smashbox eyeshadows are SO freaking buttery smooth and creamy that I am kicking myself for not breaking out this baby sooner. (And I’m pretty sure it was Limited Edition, because I don’t see it on the Sephora site)
The shades that I have been using the most are the ones marked with the heart. (The shades aren’t named at all) I can’t wait to dive into the other colors! Amazon – $54
NARS All Day Luminous Powder Foundation – Fiji *- BRAND spankin new from NARS, is one of the BEST powder foundations I have used in months. First off, it has an SPF of 24, can be applied wet or dry & comes in 12 different shades. My skin gets incredibly dry in the winter and I usually stay away from powder products, but this has seriously changed my makeup routine. I have been using it for a little extra coverage when I wear my NARS Sheer Glow and those 2 products combined are like Joanie & Chachi. It blends into the skin beautifully and is so finely milled. I highly recommend picking this up if you are looking for something to splurge on with your Sephora F&F 20% off code! Buy Here – $48
It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi *- I spoke about this blush earlier this week when I posted my review on the new QVC TSV set, so I won’t go too much into detail. I REALLY hope IT decides to release more ombre blushes, because this one is amazing! Out Of Stock
NARS Damage Lipstick – Described as a sheer muted grape, I have been LOVING the wash of color this gives my lips! It’s a perfect Fall shade for when you don’t want to go too bold. Buy Here – $26
NARS Lip Gloss in Dolce Vita *- This lipgloss looks AMAZING over Damage! I am in love with the new NARS gloss formulas – They are creamy, not sticky and don’t have an obnoxious scent to them. Buy Here – $26
Marc Jacobs Lash Lifter Gel Mascara – Do.Not.Buy.This. I received this sample from Sephora and was SO excited to try it out. Womp womp. It’s a huge fail for me. The formula is SO wet and did absolutely nothing for my lashes. Every time I take the brush out, it gets stringy. It has a price tag of $26, but I can think of a TON of drugstore mascaras that do a way better job and are a fraction of the price. Have you tried this? Is it just me?
And that wraps up my Friday Favorites & Fails! What products were you loving and maybe not so loving this week? Would love to know in the comments below! Have a great weekend!

So many nice products…and that organizer is so cool! The mascara looks kind of nasty…I’ll stick with my $3 WetNWild that works for me!! 😉

I want that blush. I hope that IT makes it available for individual sale. One day, a Nars lipstick will be mine. I have decreed it! You are an evil enabler. LOL
That smashbox palette was cute
Some fab products. Shame about the fail of a mascara though.
Leelo R says
SO many great products! Too bad Marc Jacobs Lash Lifter Gel Mascara ain´t no good 🙁
Love the look of the Smashbox palette!
Damage is gorging! It reminds me of a slightly lighter NARS Fast ride (which I love). Digging the gloss caddy, too! I’m slowly learning to love glosses so I can see a need for such a case in my future… BOO on bad mascara, lol. Is there anything worse?!
Gorging, oh my gosh. GORGIE:) 🙂
Tina @ My Highest Self says
That lip combo looks glorious! It seems like it would really look good on anyone.
I love favorites!! That NARS powder was in my online basket on Sephora.com but the last minute I decided against it – but now I’m totally rethinking that decision! Also, thanks for the heads up on the acrylic cases I’m in need of new storage for my lippies! 🙂

I’ve never been impressed with MJ Mascara. As fabulous as the rest of the line is you’d think the mascara would be at the same level =(
