Product Review

Outrageous Curl from Sephora Collection has been one of the most surprising products I have used lately. Dare I say that I love it? I received a mini size and took one look at the wand and was like “oh no, this isn’t going to do anything.”  I was so wrong! I have been able to get amazing length the last few days of using it. Way to go Sephora Collection! Working at Sephora as long as I did, I often overlooked the house brand products, but this one definitely deserves some attention. Here is a picture of one eye with the mascara and one obviously without. I am shocked! The price point is of course much more reasonable than my ultimate favorite Dior Blackout mascara (which I will still treat myself to occasionally) so I will be getting this again!

Halloween!

I know I am a little late in the game with posting a Halloween look this year. We had one family emergency after the next over the last two months and I haven’t exactly had the energy to go all out this year. I whipped together a very quick look on Halloween without any prior planning, so here is what I came up with!

Current Obsessions- October Edition

Anything Tokyo Milk Dark. Especially these little lip elixir pots. I am slowly collecting them all. So far, the rose has been my favorite. The Absinthe and Coco Noir are pretty great as well though. The Tainted Love fragrance also needs an honorable mention. LOVE! It is one of those brands that makes you want every single item they sell. They have amazing packaging and scents.

Anything Perricone MD. I have been sampling these products recently and have fallen in love. Of course I would love the most expensive skin care but what else is new. Last night, I used the High Potency Night Repair for the first time. I was extremely happy with how my skin looked this morning. Fresh, smooth, even toned. The Advanced Eye Area Therapy was great as well. After using it for a week and a half or so, I was happy with the results. I am trying the Cold Plasma today. perricone1

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows. Yes, I know that these are talked about all over YouTube. Well, they really are THAT GOOD. They are incredibly affordable and extremely pigmented. They blend like a dream. So far, I have been loving Bitten, Cocoa Bear, Creme Brulee, Peach Smoothie, Beaches & Cream, Burlesque, Chickadee and Last Dance. The single pans are only $5.99 a piece and can easily be organized in a Z Palette. They are such great quality!

Nest Dahlia & Vines + Midnight Fleur Fragrances.  I have a mini of both of these and am obsessed. Dahlia & Vines has notes of Daffodils, Peony, Rose and Garden vines. Midnight Fleur has notes of Exotic Woods, Black Amber, Patchouli, Night-Blooming Jasmine, Vanilla Orchid.
Also, the packaging for all of the Nest products are just perfection. UGH. As usual, I want them all.

Kat Von D Ink Liner. I really didn’t think any product would make me stray from my Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner (which I still highly recommend), but this is definitely a favorite product of mine. It glides on easily, stays put and is super black. I wear it pretty much everyday now.

Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Powder. I bought the shade “Ice” and have been loving it as a highlight for the cheeks and eyes.
