October Favorites 2013

All products and services mentioned in this post have been purchased by me, and these are my honest opinions. 

Hi All! It’s monthly favorites time! Today I’ve got four makeup products, one nail polish, and a perfume. It is a bit on the smaller side, but that is just because I tried to hold myself back on buying products this month.

October 2013

My first favorite is an eyeshadow quad. This is Maybelline’s ExpertWear Eyeshadow Quad in Designer Chocolates. This is a super gorgeous, shimmery palette. Almost everyday, I’ve used the enclosed sponge applicators to put the lightest color on my lid and browbone, the “crease” color in my outer corner, and the “liner” color in my crease and lash line.

My next favorite is my NYColor Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder in Translucent, which I am almost out of! I just bought more at Target. I love this, especially for the price! I apply it all over my face with my Laura Mercier Powder puff.

My other face product I’ve been loving this month has been my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles. Mine is in the shade Brightening, This is an awesome undereye concealer, as well as covering up the redness around my nose. I simply apply this before foundation directly to my face, then blending with a clean finger.

My final makeup product this month is a mascara. This is the Covergirl Professional All-In-One Waterproof Mascara in Very Black. This was the first mascara I ever purchased, and I’ve just recently gone back to it. My lashes work best with a drier mascara, which I believe is why this works so much better for me now.

My favorite Scent of the month is my Carried Away mini fragrance mist by Bath & Body Works. This has been my go-to all month.  I also adore this packaging!

Last, but certainly not least, is my favorite nail product of the month. This is Sinful Color’s Snow Me White. This is the first opaque white I’ve ever seen, and it is good! The price, of course,  just makes it sweeter!

Laura Mercier Haul! (Part 1)

Hey guys, so on Saturday, my Von Maur hosted a Laura Mercier Face to Face event where they brought in makeup artists. As my mom is a big Laura Mercier fan, we went, and both were made over. Because I got quite a bit of stuff, I’m going to split it up into two sections; Face, and Eyes/Lips.

The first face product I got is Laura’s Mineral Face Primer. This almost feels like a moisturizer. I definitely noticed that my tinted moisturizer stayed way better than it ever has before. My face felt moisturized, but yet oil free. I would absolutely recommend this.

The next thing I got is the Secret Concealer in #1. This is a super creamy concealer, which is awesome. It does require quite a few layers, along with the brightener, in order to cover my dark circles. This concealer does a great job covering up redness around my nose, as well.

I got the Secret Brightener in #2. There are many concealers with similar applicators to this available, in both the drugstore, and in Sephora. I haven’t quite decided if I like this or not. It is super shimmery, as you can see from the picture. In my opinion, it makes my fine lines show up. I think this would be an awesome illuminator for cheekbones, but it accomplishes nothing on my dark circles.

The next purchase was the Mineral Powder SPF 15 in Soft Porcelain. I actually haven’t used this yet, as I got it for dance performances, so that the stage lights don’t make my face look really shiny. I really like the packaging of this, I think it will make the loose powder much less messy.

This is Part 1 of my Laura Mercier haul, I will post the blush, lip products, and eye products next post. Remember to comment and follow me, I always follow back!
