Now that we are smack dab in the middle of Fall (and lovin’ it), I thought I would share some of my fav make up purchases with you. These are some great products – thus they go in the fav’s category! More importantly though, I’ll tell you why I love them. Some of the items I’ve included are new to me and some are ones that I’ve loved for a long time.
I’ll start at the top left to bottom right.
Revlon ColorStay Shadow Links, Taupe. This eyeshadow is a wonderful shade for Fall. It’s the go to shade for me. Not too dark and not too light. I found it at Walgreens. The packaging concept is that you can mix and match the little single colors and sort of slide them or link them together. I only got this one, so far. It’s that color you use a lot and run out of and am left with all the other colors in the palette….that great neutral color. Very long lasting.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion Primer. I’ve been using this primer for a while now. It’s got some serious staying power. Works all day! I haven’t tried the other versions of primer by Urban Decay so I can’t really compare those, but I have tried other primers on the market and this one is my fav.
They’re Real Mascara, By Benefit. Okay, this is the mini version. The one you find up by the check out area of Ulta. I got it because my eyes are really sensitive and do not take kindly to change. So I wanted to test this mascara before I splurged for the full tube. So wonderful! It has a pretty unique brush, maybe that’s why it’s so great at extending your lashes? Your lashes look like they have extensions…but they don’t. I can see why it got such great reviews, great stuff. When this mini is gone, I’ll definitely be going back to the full size. It is by far my fav mascara now.
Cover Girl Olay Eye Rehab. This product didn’t get amazing reviews on the Ulta site. I’m not sure why. I like it alot. I only use it on the corners of my eyes though, not all over the under eye area. It last a long time, and it doesn’t “melt” on your face. I read this article (found on Pinterest) and decided to try applying concealer the way they explained. Looks great!
Stila Lip Glaze. I’ve been wearing this lip gloss, for years. It’s thick and long lasting. It’s a mainstay for me. I love these little versions–and their price. There are tons of colors. Bonus, scented and tastes great, too! It’s especially great for the cooler months, because it really helps keep my lips from getting dry.
L’Oreal Color Riche, Eyeliner, Violet. I tried this on a whim. It’s brighter than I wanted it to be, but It’s a fun change up when you are tired of all the neutral colors you’ve been using! Be sure to smooth it in with the other end of the pencil.
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner. I love every color here! The Corrupt (rich medium brown) and Zero (black) are staples. I apply the brown on my lower eye, so I have some color there, but not really dramatic color. I’m not a fan of black eyeliner all over. It makes your eyes look smaller and I want bigger, not smaller. The other pencil has Stash (lighter brown) and Sabbath (navyish) are my current favs. These all came in a set, with a sharpener. If I use the primer first, this eyeliner lasts sun up to sun down. That’s hard to beat isn’t it.
So there you have it! Some great colors for Fall. Some neutrals because they are still popular in my book, but I mixed things up with the eyeliners. Love the color there!
