October Beauty Favorites
Laura Mercier Artist Palette - $48. Sephora.
When I saw this online I was sold within 2 minutes. Mostly I wear a neural eye or a violet/purple eye look. This palette has all of that. There is a mixture of matte and shimmer shadows. The pigmentation is amazing and the shadows last all day. I have been mostly wearing African Violet, Bamboo, Violet Ink, and Espresso Bean. Vanilla Nuts is a great highlight shade. I also have been reaching for this palette more than my Urban Decay Naked Palette lately.
Too Faced Brow Envy - $35. Sephora, ULTA, toofaced.com
I have been looking for the ultimate brow kit after finishing my Anastasia Brow Wiz. This is my first Too Faced purchase as well. I am throughly impressed with the quality and easiness of creating the perfect brow. The highlighter is also a great shade that works with pretty much any color. I primarily use the Brunette shade and I do have to say it's more of a dark brown. So if your brows are lighter than that, use the blonde shade. The setting wax is AMAZING! It holds my brows and the color ALL DAY. I had problems with that previously, but no more! Great little investment.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - $23. Sephora, ULTA, toofaced.com
I purchased this mascara a little bit after the brow kit because I regretted not getting it. I love this mascara! It gives my lashes thickness, volume, and length. It is super black and makes my lashes noticeable. It does not flake at all and lasts about 8 hrs.
Microdelivery Peel Kit - $40. Sephora, ULTA, philosophy.com, QVC. Sample of Josie Maran Argan Oil, Full size ($48) available at Sephora and at http://www.josiemarancosmetics.com/
The Microdelivery Peel came in a Philosophy skin care set I purchased back in August I believe. I have been using the Peel consistently 1x a week. I have seen significant results in the texture of my skin. My skin also feels really refreshed after using the peel!
I got this Josie Maran Argan Oil sample back in October. I was kind of skeptical at first because it's so hyped up on YouTube and QVC. I am actually impressed with how well it works. The first morning after using it the night before, my skin was instantly 2x smoother! You only need a small drop too so it should last you a long time. I use it with my nightly moisturizer.
MAC Cool Eye, Lip and Face Holiday Kit for $50
I was shopping at MAC in late October when the sales associate pointed out that I could reserve the Holiday Palettes before it came out. I jumped on reserving this one. I am not disappointed one bit. It is small and compact. The shades are just gorgeous and perfect for a smokey eye. The lip colors are richly pigmented and have a smooth creamy finish. The highlighter gives my cheeks that "holiday glow". Just love!
From Top to Bottom: Dior in Minuit ($36) , MAC Private Party ($16), YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #11 ($34)
This is my first Dior lipstick. I have to say I am sold on the quality. I wore this to work and it stayed on my lips till lunch time. And I still had a stain after eating! I had to take a picture of the packaging. Isn't the winter edition lipstick just gorgeous?!
Private Party is the perfect fall/winter color. It's pretty much sold out but you may be able to find it on Ebay! I have an addiction to YSL lipsticks. The pigmentation is amazing and the color lasts on your lips all morning.
