October 2015 Favorites

Friday, October 30, 2015

Okay, I hate when people say this, but man did this month flash by! I swear I was just gathering last month's favorites yesterday. Anywho, clearly time has passed because I have quite a few things to share with you today! Here's what I've been absolutely loving this month ;

Pixi Glow Tonic - I have been wanting to try this toner for so long! Finally got my ass to Target and picked it up (pretty sure you can also get it online now). And well, it was worth the wait. This tonic is nothing short of amazing. Exfoliating (5% glycolic), brightening, refreshing, soothing and most importantly gentle! I use this in the morning and my Earth Science Clarifying Herbal Astringent at night!

Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist - Since I was standing in front of all these Pixi products for the first time, I was also drawn to this makeup setting spray. I mean...Green tea and rose? Sounds good. Hydrating AND pore tightening? A combo skin gal's dream! I think this would honestly work great on any skin type though. It feels sooo luxurious and really does help things look fresh and stay fresh! Plus it has this lovely rose scent, which might not be a great selling point for some, but I swear it's so nice, not like your grandma's kinda rose smell, you know?

Sephora Purifying & Mattifying Mud Mask - You can read my full review here, but in a nutshell ; this mask has been a real life saver for my skin and my wallet!

Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm - Okay, this is weird I know, I thought it too, but I love this stuff as a primer. Like lol, wut? Yes! But when NikkieTutorials mentioned it on her channel, I just had to try it. I quite like hydrating primers like the Too Faced Hangover Primer and then going over my T-Zone with a mattifying primer if needed. Basically, this balm has tons of glycerin which locks in moisture but also gives a nice texture for your foundation to adhere to. So for me it pretty much does the same thing as the Too Faced Primer, but without the fancy coconut water and electrolytes...It does have a SLIGHT "manly" scent to it, but it doesn't linger. And because it's for sensitive skin, it doesn't irritate the skin. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?! Oh and it's only a few bucks...Yup!

Maybelline Brow Define + Fill Duo - I've really been loving this product for quick easy everyday brows. One side is a waxy precise pencil type product, and the other end is powder dispensed by a little smudger applicator. Your brows look, well, full and defined in two quick motions. Add some fiber gel (or whatever gel your prefer) and your furry forehead friends will be on fleek guuurl!

Maybelline Better Skin Concealer - As you might know, I didn't have much luck with the matching foundation, but I quite like this concealer! I rarely like to use the same concealer for my imperfections and my under eye area but this works for both. It has this great consistency that smooths out everything, it's medium to full coverage and it has good lasting power!

Wet n Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in Rose Champagne Glow - Now I believe this is limited edition and it's kind of hard to find BUT if you can find it, it'll be the best $7 you've spent in a while! I love finding inexpensive highlighters that still look beautiful & glowy,without chunky glitter. This one is a winner!
