Anyways, here are my fall picks:
1.) Benefit- They're Real! Mascara
I'm a huge mascara girl. I'll stick to one for a few months, then totally switch to another. I can't help the feeling that there is always something better out there. Lately, I've been obsessed with Covergirl Clump Crusher, but this mascara gives it a run for its money. It makes your lashes long, separated, and it has a spikey ball thing on the end to get the little lashes.
2.) Glam Glow Mask
I've been DYING to try this mask after seeing that gross picture on Pinterest (example here). This stuff is supposed to suck the dirt and oil right out of your pores. The down side, I wasn't willing to drop $70 at Sephora on a product that I hadn't tried. The upside, they now sell a smaller size! I picked up a 0.5 oz size for $19. Maybe I'll do a review later?
3.) Urban Decay- De Slick Makeup Setting Spray
This stuff is wonderful for hot, sticky summer air. After you're done doing your makeup, spray a few sprays on your face (from an arm's length away). It helps keep your makeup on and grease off of your face. This is perfect for a 12 hour shift at work. I don't start looking like a tired, grumpy hag until about hour 10 now. :)
4.) Sonia Kashuk- Blending Sponge
I honestly haven't tried this yet. I was too cheap to spring for the Beauty Blender that I've been seeing everywhere lately, so I went for the Target version. I plan on using this for special occasions where I spend a little more time on makeup. Most days, I just use my fingers, so I'm interested to see if this thing really works.
5.) Sephora- Primal Instincts Eyeshadow Palette
Holy moly, I got this for $28. There are 14 colors, and each shadow is a decent size. Some shades are shimmery and a few are matte. This palette has a ton of fall colors that work for day and night. I still can't get over the price. LOVE.
6.) L'Oreal- Magic Lumi Highlighter
Spoiler alert, this is going on my next favorite things list. This is, by far, my favorite thing on this post today. I LOVE this stuff. You just click the bottom, and a little bit of the product squirts out onto the brush. I put it in a triangle shape under my eyes, and it covers dark circles SO well. It's a wonderful product if you're just getting into highlight and contour and don't want to look like a freak if you do it wrong. Seriously, go get you some!
7.) Too Faced- Tan Without the Twinkle Bronzer
Ok, let me start off by saying that this bronzer smells like chocolate. It smells SO awesome. I got it in a smaller size at Sephora that comes with a pretty high quality brush. This stuff is a great matte bronzer that gives you a hint of color, but not a summer tan look. Perfect for fall when your skin tone is a little lighter.
8.) Urban Decay- 24/7 Eye Pencil in Perversion
Best eyeliner ever. It goes on really creamy and blend-able. I put mine on and smudge it a little with a stiffer, flat brush. It truly doesn't budge. I also have kind of sensitive eyes, and some of the heavy duty long lasting stuff makes my eyes puffy, but not this stuff. This is definitely a must have!
Alright ladies (and gentlemen?), that's all I have for today.
What are some of your fall beauty must haves?
