Fall Products 2014

Over the past few months I’ve stocked up on some gorgeous new products that need to be shared! I know it looks like a ton of things but don’t think I bought them all at once! There are some amazing things in this haul so take a look 🙂

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #12 $18: This brush is the perfect size and stiffness to get clean lines on your brows without going too heavy-handed. The spooly on the other end is perfect for keeping your brows clean

  • Milani Brow Shaping Clear Gel $4.49: This clear gel locks the brows in place so they stay put all day long. There are tons of more expensive versions, but this one works perfectly fine for almost 1/3 of the cost

  • Milani Brow & Eye Highlighter 02 $6.49: Run this along the top and bottom of the brows when you’re done to reveal crisp, clean edges to make the brows look even bolder

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade (Chocolate) $18): Sadly this is one product I’ve been disappointed with… I waited months for my shade to come in but I definitely prefer the Brow Wiz pencil. The color stays on forever but I feel that it’s way too easy to overdo the eyebrows to the point that they look “painted on”. This could totally be my fault, but it really does take a lot of practice and patience I don’t have on a day-to-day basis

  • L’Oreal Infallible Super Slim Eyeliner (Black) $8.95: This felt tip eyeliner pen is pretty standard. Nothing too wonderful or amazing, but it does give a thin line that some of the fatter tipped pens do not

  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette $58: For months I’ve wanted these blushes, or any Hourglass product for that matter. I’ve heard they give you a “glow from within” and oh my Lord that’s exactly what they do! They are all absolutely gorgeous on the skin and stay for hours. The blushes do not look glittery or chunky on the skin like some can, but they definitely give the cheeks some dimension and life

  • MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot (Soft Ochre) $21: Pretty standard in the makeup world. The best thing about this eyeshadow primer is that it conceals all the redness and veins in eyelids while priming for eyeshadow. The shadow will last all day and not crease if you use this product. Also great for sculpting out the bottom of the brows!

  • MAC Eyeshadow (Shroom) $16: This satin eyeshadow gives a gorgeous highlight on the brow bone and inner corner. It is not too shimmery or glittery, but rather light reflective. Pairs beautifully with almost any look on any skin tone

  • Bare Minerals Well Rested Concealer $18: This powder concealer brightens up the under eye area rather well. I found that it does crease on me if I use it by myself. The trick to fix this is to use a small amount of regular face powder right under the eye before applying the Bare Minerals powder. It has a little bit of a satin finish so there will be a tiny bit of iridescence but nothing overwhelming

  • Kat Von D Tattoo Lock It Foundation (46 Light) $34: HOLY GRAIL!!! I bought this on a whim just out of curiosity (and love for Kat) but OH MY GOD you need this in your life! Out of any foundation I’ve ever used this one is my favorite of all time. I honestly don’t know how anything will top it. You can use only one pump to completely conceal any redness or discoloration on your entire face. It’s lightweight while being full coverage which is something very rare in foundation. It stays put for literally 24 hours without having to be retouched. If you’re looking for a new product, this is the one to buy. I can’t stress it enough, it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

  • Sephora Collection Pro Airbrush #55 $34: As far as brushes go, this one is pretty amazing for being a Sephora brand. It blends the foundation seamlessly into the skin and removes any excess product to avoid that awful cake face we’ve all fell victim to

  • NYX Lip Products
    • Slim Lip Pencil (Nude Pink & Nude Beige $3.50: Long lasting and pigmented for the price
    • Retractable Lip Liner (Dark Red) $4.50: Fun Fact: the MAC makeup artist couldn’t believe I was wearing this lipliner – she thought it was a MAC lipstick! So for that reason I’m pretty in love with this, you can wear it alone or under a lipstick and it will last for hours without retouching
    • Matte Lipstick (Butter) $6: This is a very brown looking lipstick that I haven’t felt that I can pull off. However, the formula is not drying so even though it is a matte finish it doesn’t go on chalky over the lips
    • Extra Creamy Round Lipstick (Tea Rose) $4: Again, for $4 you can’t beat NYX lipsticks. This one looks gorgeous over the Nude Pink liner. I prefer this over a liner simply because I don’t find the lipstick to be particularly long-wearing
    • Soft Matte Lip Cream (Sao Paulo & Monte Carlo) $6: If you like a matte lip, I highly recommend these. They go on as a liquid lipstick that quickly dries to a matte finish. The end up wearing as a stain so even when the initial top layer wears off you’ll be left with a good amount of color

  • MAC Whirl Lipliner $16: This may be the most perfect lip liner color I’ve ever owned. It is gorgeous on almost any skin tone and works perfectly if you’re trying for those Kylie Jenner lips. Depending on what lipstick you use the color can go more brown or pink so it’s very versatile. I think this should be a staple in every girl’s lip collection

Lip Swatches! Sorry they’re not in focus, but you get the idea!
