November favorites

Blog, Favorites

Ciao!

This post is so, so, late, but here are my favorites for November!

I got really into purple eyeshadow this month, inspired by the Kylie Cosmetics purple palette. Right now I’m not interested in purchasing from that company, but it did make me realize how much I really like purple eyeshadows. That lead to a purchase from Colourpop during their buy one get one free sale of a couple pressed powder shadows.

I also fell in love with deep mauve lipsticks and basically lived in them the whole month.

The matchup: Mermaid makeup

Blog, The Matchup

Ciao!

This Halloween, I’m planning on being a mermaid, mostly because I really wanted to do a fun makeup look. Luckily, most of the makeup is affordable ($20 or less), which is great because I’m not willing to spend a ton of money on blue eyeshadows I likely won’t wear again. In fact, the only items I ordered specifically for this look were from Colourpop.

So keep reading to learn how to get this beautiful mermaid look!

My top picks for fall makeup

Blog, The Bella Edit

Ciao!

Things I love about fall (in order):

  • Pumpkins
  • Dark matte lipstick
  • Pumpkins
  • Sweaters and boots
  • Pumpkins
  • Copper eyeshadow
  • Pumpkins

Clockwise from left: Colourpop yes please palette, Tarte matte lip paint in bestie, Julep feels like velvet duo in cinnamon and spice, Charlotte Tilbury matte revolution in very victoria, Winky Lux double matte whip liquid lipstick in shortcake.

Jokes aside, fall is probably my favorite season for makeup. All of the looks people create draw from the changing leaves and amber scenery and I find they’re much more creative in general.

This list is entirely lipstick and eyeshadow, because that’s what I think of as distinctly fall makeup. Here’s everything I’ve been loving to wear this fall!

Disclaimer: no lipsticks or eyeshadow where harmed by falling off of/into pumpkins in the making of this post.

Winky lux kitten eyeshadow palette review

Makeup Reviews, Reviews

Ciao!

I’ve had this palette since late August, and aside from posting a little about it on my Instagram story, I couldn’t talk much about it!

But the palette officially launched today, so now I’m free to post on this palette. Spoiler alert: I love it. I’m a fairly picky eyeshadow user, especially drugstore eyeshadows. I was fairly skeptical of this palette before I tried it on my eyes, but now there’s no question about the quality.

Blog, Favorites

Ciao!

This August, I’ve been loving a nice mix of makeup. The funny part about this post is that only 2 of the 6 products I’ve picked out are new. The other few are some that I’ve had for a while and I’ve just now rediscovered.

Read on to see what I’ve been loving this August!

Winky Lux whipped cream primer review

Makeup Reviews, Reviews

Ciao!

So I tend to keep an eye out for gimmicky products. I mean, what do I want more: a product that looks cool or a product that works? Sometimes both, but I’m mostly looking for things that do their job.

That’s why I was incredibly skeptical of this product. I’d checked it out on the website before I received it as PR and was really surprised that so many people liked this product. After I got it, it took me forever to test it out because primer isn’t something I wear when I’m trying to get my makeup done quick and I was testing out two other primers at the time.

Here’s the thing about Winky Lux: they boast that their prices are affordable, when in reality they’re sort of a middle ground between brands like Colourpop and brands like Too Faced. The prices are actually quite similar to brands like Covergirl or L’oreal- brands that were once cheap but are now drastically raising their prices.  At $19, it was the cheapest in my collection featuring the Hourglass mineral veil primer ($19/3 oz or $54/1.01oz), the Julep illuminating and mattifying primers ($28/1 oz), and my all time favorite BECCA first light priming filter ($38/30ml).

However, $19 still isn’t exactly cheap, so how does this stack up?

New York haul

Blog, Hauls

Ciao!

Last week I was in New York, beauty capital of the world. I did quite a bit of shopping while I was there, but both places I bought from were places I couldn’t go at home.

First I went to the glossier showroom where I swatched everything they sold and picked up a few things for myself.

Second I went to the Bite Beauty lip lab where I created my own lipsticks alongside my mom. I’ll be doing individual posts on both of those experiences soon!

I also had the amazing opportunity to visit Winky Lux and received a ton of PR from them. I won’t be including that in this post because not all of the items are available for purchase yet, however expect reviews soon!
