October Favorites


Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil

This is definitely a new all-time favorite. I have already gone back to buy it in other colors. This is THE smoothest, longest lasting, boldest color payoff gel eyeliner pencil I have ever tried. I love gel pencils in general, but this is the best one I have found. It is great for so many things too. To line the water line when you're doing a smokey eye, I have never found a pencil that goes on so black, so smooth and lasts so long. Normally when I line my water line, it's gone in an hour, this lasted all day and night. I also love smudging it all over my lid as a base for shadows, and just as a normal eyeliner pencil, it is awesome. My only gripe is that it only comes in a few colors. I will definitely use the black, brown, grey, and purple it comes in, but I wish there was more. I have to say just pencil to pencil, I like this better than the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner, which we all know and love (and I still do) but I will keep buying those too because of the shade range.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I wouldn't say I was my hair frequently. Having naturally curly hair, I honestly wash my hair 2 or 3 times a week. My curls usually still look good on day 3, but my roots could use a little freshening up, and this is by far the best dry shampoo I have tried. A lot of dry shampoos make my scalp itch so badly it's almost painful, even though I don't spray them directly on my scalp. This one is so gentle, but it still absorbs some of the oil and freshens up. I also find a lot of dry shampoos are just plain stinky, but this smells sooooo good. All of the Batiste dry shampoos smell good, but the Wild is by far my favorite. Definitely a product I will never be without again.

Morphe E18 brush

I am always looking for the perfect brush to smudge out my lower lash line, and I have finally found it! A lot of pencil brushes, I think, kind of hurt when you're blending on that delicate undereye skin, but this is the absolute softest brush ever. It's rounded so it doesn't feel like it's stabbing you like some of the pointy pencil brushes do. I am obsessed with Morphe brushes, and I wrote about a lot of them in depth Here. I've also gotten several new ones since then, which I will be writing about very soon!

BECCA Backlight Priming Filter

There is only one work for this primer: Gorgeous. It has a golden-pearl cast that makes your skin just glow. The sheen looks a little overwhelming at first, but when you put foundation over it, it tones it down slightly, and this absolutely beautiful glow is created. I like putting the sheen under foundation, which makes it more of a "lit from within" glow, and makes you look radiant. I know some people feel like putting a powder highlighter over their foundation looks too shiny or too fake, but still want to glow, and this is the PERFECT solution for that.

Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb

This moisturizer is perfect for days that I still need a good amount of hydration, but don't want something thick or sticky. It is a gel-like consistency, which means it absorbs pretty fast and it dries to a beautifully soft and smooth finish. It gives a cooling feeling when you apply it too, which is so refreshing. I love this moisturizer. It didn't irritate or break me out either, just a good dose of hydration that was non-sticky and absorbs beautifully. It's also a pretty blue color, which just makes it even more fun...

Nugg Hydrating Face Mask

I still like a hydrating mask, even if I have a moisturizer I love. This baby does the trick, and it's cheap! The container also has enough in it for at least two uses. It feels kind of gel-like when you apply it and is super hydrating. It smells good, didn't irritate my sensitive skin, and your skin feel soooo soft the minute you rinse it off. Definitely one of my new standbys. I also found that using this at night kept me hydrated all night. I would use this, then put the Aqua Bomb over it, and would be nice and hydrated in the morning.
