Fall Faves

Since I haven't done a favorite post in quite some time, I thought I would compile the products I've been loving over the last few months into one post - Fall Faves!

MAC Rebel lipstick: My go-to fall lip. Seriously, you can't go wrong with this lippie. I like pairing it with different lipsticks and liners to achieve the ombre lip.Which brings me to my next favorite...

MAC Nightmoth lip pencil: I've been wearing this liner a lot this fall. I especially like wearing it with MAC Rebel and Revlon Cherries in the Snow lipsticks. It completes the perfect vampy fall lip.

Benefit Coralista blush: Oldie, but goodie. I'll admit I neglected this blush for awhile. And I'm not exactly sure when I started using it again. But I've literally been wearing this blush almost every day the past two months or so. Perfect peachy-coral blush. Flatters most skin-tones. And you can wear it with almost any look.

MAC By Candlelight MSF LE: I may have mentioned this in a favorites post before. My absolute favorite Mineralize Skinfinish by MAC, which unfortunately is a limited edition product. It's been repromoted once before. Here's to hoping they repromote it again, or make it permanent. Rosy-gold-champagne highlighting perfection!

NARS Laguna bronzer: My favorite bronzer of all time? It just might be. I mentioned this product over the summer in my May/June Favorites. Well, I've pretty much been using it non-stop this fall, everyday. I've actually hit pan! I can't remember the last time I hit pan on a product that wasn't a face/setting powder. I use this bronzer daily to bronze/contour my face. Love it!

MAC Brown Script eyeshadow: I seriously don't know how I lived before this shadow! A little dramatic? Probably. Well, needless to say, I love this beauty. Brown Script, a warm, reddened orange-brown, is a part of MAC permanent eyeshadow line. You know how you use Soft Brown as a transition color? Think of this as Soft Browns younger, hipper, more dramatic little sister. My favorite transition color. I use this with nearly all my dark, dramatic smokey eyes, And yes! with vibrant colors too, not just darks and blacks. Trust me. You NEED this shadow.

Urban Decay Blackout eyeshadow: Hands down the blackest-black eyeshadow ever. The best! I fell in love with this baby when I was introduced to it in the NAKED 2 palette, and I haven't looked back. My poor pan of MAC Carbon probably has a layer of dust on it now... MAC usually gets it right. But Urban Decay redefined the black eyeshadow game with this one. I plan to get an individual pot so I don't hit pan on the one in my Naked 2 palette.

MAC Spruced Crushed Metallic Pigment LE: First let me say, I am in love with MAC Solarbits, which sadly have been discontinued. But when MAC released the Crushed Metallic Pigments I fell in love all over again. They are like liquid metal for the eyes. Tiny pearls of metallic pigments that leave me drooling. Spruced is an amazing teal metallic pigment, that is a part of the MAC Gulity Passions: 4 Brilliantly Cool Crushed Metallic Pigments set. What I love about these pigments is that they 'pop' on every skintone. I kid you not.

MAC Feminity Crushed Metallic Pigment LE: Another from the MAC Holiday collections- MAC Guilty Passions: 4 Sweetly Smoky Crushed Metallic Pigments. This beauty is like MAC Stars 'n Rockets on steroids! Enough said.

Wet 'n Wild Mega Liner Black Liquid Eyeliner: I picked this up this liner on a random, unnecessary trip to the drugstore. I had been hearing good things about this liner and wanted to give it a try. What I really like about this liner is that its CHEAP, but more importantly it works! You can achieve pretty much any eyeliner shape with the thin brush tip. It give a nice thin flick on winged liner. If you can have a steady hand, it may take some practice. But for $2.99 its worth taking the time to practice. Be careful, this liner doesn't dry as quickly as some other popular brands.

Trader Joe's 100% Pure Jojoba Oil: I've mentioned many, many times how oily my skin is. After coming across a post about oil-cleansing on Pintrest and countless articles and blog posts, I started an oil-cleansing skincare regimen. I've been mixing castor, olive and jojoba oils to cleanse my skin. And moisturizing with jojoba oil afterward. Jojoba oil is an amazing moisturizer and makeup remover. While the brand isn't so important, just that it be 100% PURE. I picked my bottle up for $6.99 at Trader Joes, which was a good deal. I've seen the same amount of product at Wegmans and other stores for more. I plan on doing a post about my experience with oil-cleansing. Let me know if you have any questions; if you leave them in the comments below I will try to include them in my post!

We'll talk soon, pinky promise
