October Favorites

As I write this post we are having our first snow fall here in New York. It doesn’t seem that we are going to catch a break just yet. October has passed in great speed and November has come bringing the long cold nights. I miss the daylight and loathe the sensible coats but welcome the change. I have lots of new loves this past month. Although, new to me, I can see some becoming staples in my collection.  I have been using these five items religiously, and would undoubtedly recommend everything.

  1. Chanel Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base – I have been with this product for about two months now. I love the amount of warmth this bronzer provides to my skin and am crazy for its texture. I use it just about every day for an all over tan or for creating contour to my cheekbones. This product is easy to build, from subtle color to a deeper tan. See my review here.
  2. Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Billionaire – As a departure to your typical dark vampy shades for fall, I love this deep hunter-green from Deborah Lippmann. It is a very wearable and sophisticated color. Like all of DL’s polishes, it goes on like a dream.
  3. Becca Balearic Love Palette – I have been using this trio of shades daily to create a variety of looks, from a natural day-time look to a dramatic night-time look. The color’s are very flattering and very easy to create a smokey-eye look with. The shadows are easy to use and blend beautifully. I also use the lightest shade to fill in my brows. I will absolutely be checking out other Becca eye palettes in the future.
  4. YSL Rouge Volupte in #30 (Faubourg Peach) – I have a great weakness for YSL’s Rouge Volupte Formula. This gorgeous nude-peach has been my go-to shade. I find it very wearable. See my review.
  5. Becca Mineral Blush in Songbird – I picked up this blush slong with the Balearic Love Palette. Becca’s Mineral Blushes are absolutely divine. I would place it among my top 3 favorites just for formula. It provides intense color that lasts all day. Songbird is a peachy-pink shade that brings my complexion back to life.

What are some of your favorite products this past month?

    Great favorites, Taylor! I see Becca, one of my favorite brands up there 🙂

    I’ve been doing too much testing last month, so it’s hard to say if I have any true favorites. Perhaps I’ll do a late autumn/early winter edition once the Christmas stuff has been tested out!

    • Thank you Sunny! I am in love with Becca too, have you seen the new quads? I so look forward to seeing your new reviews. Loving the new site btw 🙂

        Thanks Taylor! We don’t have Becca counters here, so I’ll have to order the quads from Zuneta. I’m still waiting for more swatches before I can make up my mind though. For the moment there is too little information about them!

      • Unfortunitely I am not aware of any counters locally as well, anxiously awaiting some swatches! ahough I might have taken a blind leap on one 🙂

    Great picks! Than tanner looks amazing on you, as does that lipstick. Hunter green polish is a really nice change from your typical vampy shades while still being dark! This montn I’m loving my urban decay naked 2, i need to review it on the blog. I’ve also been infatuated with Organix Moroccan Argan deep conditioner from the drustore. Really makes my hair soft and its cheap!
