How to make it through a cold and rainy New York day: rain boots, pixie pants, and a cozy sweater. Oh, and don't forget Starbucks! Top off the outfit with a chic necklace, headband, and your favorite fall lip color (Berry and Burgundy have been in constant rotation) and you've got yourself a winneRead More
Another month gone by, another round of beauty favorites! This month focused a lot more on hair and skin products, although I did happen upon two lovely makeup bits as well!
I received a sample of this little miracle in my August Birchbox and loved it so much, I couldn't live without the full size! My hair is long, tangley, colored, and an absolute nightmare to brush out after a shower. BUT NOT ANYMORE (<-- said in a dramatic announcer voice) This bright red bottle boasts being a detangler, leave-in conditioner, and heat protectant! (Plus it smells great, so what's not to love??) It's sold exclusively at Birchbox, so be sure to check it out!!
Yet another Birchbox find! I've been using this little gem in place of my regular mousse and I adore it! It adds thickness and volume to thin, lifeless locks and smells awesome while doing it!
Here's where it gets tricky, trying to find an easy-to-use, waterproof, pigment-rich black liquid eyeliner is like trying to find a unicorn. But so far in the search, Stila takes the cake. In my experience, It's about 75% waterproof, moderately easy to use (but go slow, and have a makeup wipe handy) and it definitely packs a big punch when it comes to pigment!
If you only buy one lip product all fall, buy this one! The Almost Lipsticks are the ultimate cross between a lipstick and lip balm! Keep it sheer, build it up, whatever you want to do! I've been wearing this non-stop all month! I loved it so much that I did an entire post on it here
I swear this was made for college students. Late night studying (or watching netflix) are met in the morning will puffy, baggy eyes and that's where this gem comes to the rescue! Pop it on your lids and under your eyes before you make breakfast and by the time you're done, you'll be de-puffed and bright eyed! (Plus it smells like coffee, YUM!)
And finally, the wondermask that has put my skin back on track! (Changing climate, schedule, stress, etc of college takes a huge toll) I've been using this mask once a week to de-gunk my skin and it has worked wonders!Read More
The ultimate your-lips-but-better product! I picked up Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey from Sephora about three weeks ago and I've reached for it almost every day since!
Don't be fooled by the dark color, it gives a sheer wash of berry, which can be built up to a darker shade if needed. The genius of Almost Lipstick shades is that they look good on virtually everyone and can be as sheer or as dark as you'd like!Read More
