October Favorites

Hello Everyone!
My apologies for being MIA this past month. It was an extremely busy month filled with Netherworld, Weddings, TV shoots, Headshots and Halloween makeups. CRAZY! Now that I have a few days here and there to blog, I will hopefully be able to start posting more regularly!

I know we are already a week into November but I have a few favorites from October that I want to share with you guys!!

1. "Scandal Eyes" Eye Liner  by Rimmel London 
I saw a video on youtube the other day about Rimmel products and this eye liner was compared to Urban Decay 24/7 liners. I had to try some so I purchased the brown and black at CVS. I must say these eye liners are extremely pigmented and long lasting!! I believe they are only $3.99 also.. What a steal!! The only issue I have with these is that they don't last very long in the waterline. I have this same issue with Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners as well. That being said, they last a very long time when applied to the lash line and for the price you can't beat it! 

2. "They're Real" Mascara by Benefit Cosmetics 
I have had this mascara for a very long time. I feel like I always have 2 or 3 sample sizes in my collection for some reason. I recently ran out of the Maybelline mascara I was using and decided to try this one out again. The second I used it I fell in love with it! It lengthens and adds volume! It lasts all day and I haven't noticed any sort of flaking. LOVE this and I am so excited that I rediscovered it. 

3. "Naked Basics" Palette by Urban Decay 

I had abandoned this palette for a while and I am not really sure why.. I started using this again this month and it has been my go to palette. I have been wearing brighter lip colors this month so I find myself reaching for a neutral matte palette to pair with the lip color. These colors are perfect for adding dimension to the eye with out adding color. I have been using "Foxy" on my lid, "Naked" in my crease, and "Faint" in the outer corner. If I am going out I may add a little bit of "Crave" for a more dramatic effect.

4. "Cabana Boy" blush by The Balm

 I placed in order on Hautelook for some items from The Balm. I purchased this blush for only $12 and it was such a great purchase. I love this berry toned blush for this time of year. It adds such a nice glow to this skin and coincides beautifully with my berry toned lipsticks I have been wearing . The pigmentation is great and the staying power is nice too! This may be my very favorite blush at the moment :)

5. "The Balm Jovi" palette by The Balm
I have thoroughly enjoyed having this palette in my collection! It has 12 eye shadows, one highlight, one blush, and two lip/cheek duos. I have been using "Iron Main-in" as a quick all over the lid color and the 4 matte colors as basic eye looks. I am obsessed with this highlight "disco disco". I have worn it pretty much every day. The lip/cheek duo's are just alright, nothing to special. The blush is really pretty! It will be great for spring. All around this palette has great staying power, nice pigmentation and a great variety of colors to work with. It is amazing to travel with. This palette will not disappoint. 

This month of October has been great! I am so excited about the cooler weather and the leaves changing. Fall is definitely my favorite time of year :) I have a HAUL blog post coming to you next so stay tuned!! 

I hope this was helpful :)
