It is time for a favorites post! I am so excited!!! I am especially excited because I am featuring the cute graphic above from Beautysets! Have you guys had a chance to play around with Beautysets yet? So fun! I hope to create more lists there!!!
In the past, I featured Monthly Favorites. In the future, I think I will fluctuate between monthly and seasonal favorites. It seems that I went a couple months where I was literally just using the same products. So, I skipped a few months in favor of doing a seasonal Fall Favorites post instead! I just don't want to be too repetative. With that said, if ya'll really want to read favorites posts here on a monthly basis. Please let me know! I would be happy to do it monthly if ya'll really love reading these types of posts.
There are a ton of products that I am *totally loving* right now. Some products I stumbled upon recently and some of them are long-term faves. Buckle in ya'll as this is a long list! I seriously love everything mentioned here!
If you are curious to find out what my Fall Favorite items are, please keep reading!
StriVectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles: What a great serum! Be sure to click the link to check out my full review post.
Dr. Loretta Rainforest Mist Hydrating Antioxidant: This product has replaced my Holy Grail toner! It smells amazing, feels refreshing, and has the added benefits of antioxidants! Be sure to click the link to check out my full review.
Apothekem:M Smoothing Body Polish in Blackcurrent Fig: This scrub is great. Just scrubby enough and the scent is so soothing.
Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Lotion: I look forward to pumpkin scents every year! This is a great one.
AmLactin Foot Cream: My poor caloused feet need help! I slather this on the rough spots at night before bed and then cover with socks. It really softens my feet. Love it!
Skintimate Shave Gel in Strawberry Tangerine: I just can't get enough of this yummy scent! I am a bit obcessed.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Soft Ivory: I have searched and searched and I think I might have found a (near) perfect foundation with this baby! The color match is good and the formula is just so silky and smooth. I am planning on doing a full review of this soon!
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Nude Illusion: This gloss goes on almost clear and has a yummy vanilla latte-type scent. It works well for me because it can add shine to any lip color that you wear. I find that I grab for this often.
Model Co Lip Duo in Dusk/Striptease: I am surprised at how much I like this! This is a dual ended lipstick and lipgloss. This was an item that I got in my last GLOSSYBOX. I was actually "meh" about it at first because the lip color is somewhat brown. However, I fell in love with the strawberry scent! Plus, the lip color plus the gloss are so easy to wear. This item lives in my purse/diaper bag and I apply throughout the day. I hope that more brands come out with dual ended glosses/lipsticks. What a great idea!!!
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Pink Plum: I know that there are mixed reviews out there for the Dream Bouncy Blushes. I, for one, love them! This is the one that I am reaching for the most. As soon as cold weather comes around, I primarily wear cream-style blushes. I just dab this on my cheeks with my fingers and blend. So pretty!
BeneFit Girl Meets Pearl Highlighter: Just like transitioning from powder to cream blushes, I also transition from powder to cream highlighters! This is an oldie-but-goodie for me. I use the tiniest touch of this on top of my cheekbones. It gives my look instant "bam"! I seem to always get compliments on my skin when I take the extra step and wear a highlighter.
Pixi Lash Line Ink in Black Silk: I am pretty much obcessed with winged eye liner lately. I love the precision and fine point that I get with this eye liner from Pixi. It is so easy to use!
Wet n' Wild Eye Shadow trio in Walking on Eggshells: I know, I know...I can't seem to stop talking about this $3 eye shadow trio! I realized that I better mention it when I started to see a glimpse of the pan emerging! I literally grab for this at least every other day. It is my "I am in a hurry and need to do my eyes quick" trio. I almost think that I can't live without it!
Perfume: Sheseido Zen Secret Bloom: It is not often that I stumble upon a new favorite perfume scent! I just adore this scent and so does my husband. That is a win/win! Be sure to click the link to read my full review.
Nails: Nicole by OPI in If the Blue Fits: Historically, I am a nude or pink nail polish girl. For some reason, this past year I have just been loving blues and purples! I attribute this to watching Pretty Little Liars and always wanting to copy their nails, lol! :) This "If the Blue Fits" is such a pretty and sparkly deep blue. I love it!
Tools: Tweezerman Slant Tweezer Cynthia Rowley Collection: Nothing beats a great pair of tweezers! I have super thick and unruly brows. So, I find that I am plucking stray hairs almost daily. Not only are these tweezers super cute, but they have the best "grab"! The classic slant style is my preferred tweezer style from Tweezerman. They work well and make plucking a less painful experience.
So, that is it! These items are my beauty favorites for Fall 2012! What are your favorite items lately?
Thanks for reading!!!
