During October I really didn't venture out of my normal, routine makeup. I started using some new stuff toward the end of the month, but haven't used it enough to include it as a "favorite." So, maybe November will feature some more things.
But for now, here's what I've loved throughout October!
Wet n Wild - Ebony Hates Chris
This is my first Wet n Wild fast dry polish and it's my favorite of these favorites!
If you're looking for a GOOD black polish that applies perfectly opaque in just one coat... this is it! The thing I hate about most black polishes, and polishes in general, is when the brush has so much polish on it when you first apply, and then it starts to run all over the sides of your fingers. This one does not do that. It only applies where you put the brush. Did I mention this is only $1.99... yeah. Get you some of that!
Essie- Power Clutch
On the the topic of nail polish, I purchased this Essie one at my local TJ Maxx for $3.99. I had actually been wanting Power Clutch, and when I browsed through the beauty section, I came across a whole shelf of Essie polishes. So check out your TJ Maxx or Marshall's for Essie polish.. you might find some!
This is a dark gray polish with a small hint of dark green (depending on the light). This one is also perfectly opaque in just one coat.
NYX Blush in Pinched
This is an oldie but a goodie. I L.O.V.E this blush and it's been my go-to all month long. Pinched is a peachy pink with some golden shimmer in it. All of NYX's blushes are great. So if you're in an Ulta soon, check them out!
Maybelline The Falsies (flared) Mascara
I'm normally a "stay don't, don't stray" kind of girl when it comes to mascara. Most will disappoint me because they don't live up to my L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black. On the recommendation of my friend Erin, I decided to check this one out. And I really do like it! Does it beat my L'oreal mascara? No, but it is definitely a favorite now! What I like about this mascara better than my L'oreal is that I can wear this on my lower lashes too, and it won't smudge. I usually wear a waterproof mascara on my lower lashes when I wear the L'oreal. So if you're looking for a great mascara that doesn't smudge, I definitely recommend this one!
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold
It's no secret that I love the color tattoos. Here's a more in-depth review of that. But basically this has been my most-used color for all over my eye lid. I like using it with the Maybelline Olive Martini Quad. The dark brown shade in that quad is the perfect crease color with this color. The combination of the two feels like Fall!
I'm sorry this was a short favorites!
I'm working on some new posts for November that include my favorite brushes, how I take care of my brushes, and much more! So, stay tuned. :)
What have you been loving this month?
Can you believe tomorrow is November?!
