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?

  1. 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!

      1. 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!

  2. 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!
