October Favorites

Its that time again. To be honest and I know that I say this every time, but I can't believe its already November. This whole year has flew by. Its almost Christmas. Geesh. This month I've been really loving so many lip products so majority of my favorites is dedicated to that. I hope you all had a fabulous month of October, and  have a even better month of November. xoxo

✰ Revlon Super lustrous lipsticks: Satin Plum && Primrose 
Both are very moisturizing and pigmented. Satin Plum is obviously a purple shade. This color is a pearl finish giving your lips a nice frosty flush of color. Perfect for the fall. Primrose I absolutely am in love with. It is a great alternative to my usual light nudey milky pink lipstick. A very flatter color. This color is a cream finish and I find the cream finishes lasting power is amaz for drug store lipstick. 

✰ Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick: Ultimate Orchid
This I've been looking for ever since I seen it once at the drugstore and thought I didn't need it. Well although, I didn't "need" it I still lost sleep thinking about it and I NEVER could find it again. *figures right* Well I finally got my hands on this and I'm actually pretty excited about this product. The lasting power on this baby is crazy. I swatched it on my hand the day I got it and I was literally scrubbing it off my hand, and it wasn't coming off. The color is divine, its the most stunning berry mauve color I"ve ever seen. It is a matte finish which generally I gravitate towards. Although, it applies very different. It is a little drying to the lips, but  nothing a little balm, or gloss couldn't fix. 

✰ Revlon Lip butter: Cream Brule
I didn't even no these existed. These are more of a tinted lip balm/butter. It actually applies like butter. It smells just like Cream Brule. These are super moisturizing, and very pigmented. They are a little pricey for a drugstore lip balm, but totally worth it, and the packaging is just so feminine I love it. It claims it will help improve your lips, and I've actually noticed them being a lot more softer.

✰ Maybelline Lipstick: Moonstone mauve
This is the perfect fall shade for me. I've been reaching for this color a lot this past month to really add that berry fall purple lip. Nothing to dramatic. I'm tip toeing my way more into the darker shades. Very pigmented. Not as moisturizing as the Revlon lipstick but I still really love it.

✰ Maybelline Babylips tinted lip balm
This is the perfect product for on the go. Its very easy to apply, don't have to worry about touch ups and really gives you a nice pop of color without hardly trying. I've been loving this, and the Revlon Lip Butter on days I go to school so that I don't have to worry about touch ups, or having a to look in a mirror to apply it.

✰ Revlon Nail polish Facets of fuchsia
This and Essies Lady like I've been alternating on my toes. I've used this a few times on my nails but majority of the time its been on my toes. Its a gorgeous black based polish with big chunky fuchsia and purple glitter. I did do a nails of the day post with it and Revlon's Starry Pink here

✰ Essie: Lady Like
This is probably my all time favorite fall nail color. This one  really is  home run for me. The color looks in the bottle more of a mauvy, rose color but when applied to me it looks almost like a nudey taupe pinkish shade lol. Overall its so pretty, super opaque and very elegant looking. *Love this* I did do a notd post here if you wanna see what it look like on.

✰ Maybelline: Age Rewind Concealer
I've never really been wowed by a concealer especially a drug store one, but this is one I've really been enjoying. Its so light weight feeling, and so easy to blend. They do have a decent color range to choose from. It has a micro fiber velvet sponge which I was a little leery about it being sanitary, but it applies still to this day just as it applied the first time I used it. I don't find it creasing, nor wearing off throughout the day. I do use a msf to set it, so I'm not sure how it wears not being set.

✰ Lorac Baked Eyeshadows: posh *beige & social *dark 
These have really saved my life the past month. I've really not been in the mood to wear to much makeup, especially going to classes. I don't like to wear hardly any makeup if I do at all, but these have been a great no makeup look eyeshadow's. They are both matte and look so natural when applied. These are definitely could be  buildable if desired however, I simply use it only for one reason and that being something easy, effortless and super quick to apply when on the go.

✰ Nars Blush: Lovejoy
This blush has probably been my most reached for this season. Its a gorgeous dusty rose color with a little sheen of gold to it. This blush is extremely pigmented so it does have to be well blended. A little goes a long way with this blush so you hardly have to apply any product.

✰ Mac msf: lightscapade
I've been using this everyday! Its an overall great metallic, frosty highlight. Looks so pretty when applied on top of your blusher, down your nose and my favorite under your brow bone.

✰ Ahava: facial cleanser
This was in my BirchBox last month and I absolutely LOVED it. I'm so happy I got this in my Birchbox. It doesn't leave that weird oily residue after you wash your face, and its super light feeling. Overall it really makes my face look and feel so clean. I will definitely be check out the full size of this.

✰Sun Labs Self Tanner
I actually forgot to photograph this sucker. I've been using this the whole month of October (not everyday but you know what I mean) It is probably one of my favorite self tanner products I've ever tired and I've tried quite a bit. It does give you a natural looking tan, and a very nice glow to your skin, and could be buildable depending on how often you apply it. I'm not looking to be dramatically darker, just a little color now that I'm going to be hibernating this winter and won't be getting as much sun.
