The cooler weather, the hot cups of tea and warm cozy meals I have been loving this month, if it wasn't for my love of October I would be sad to see September go. Favourites wise I have been really getting into makeup as of late. Don't get me wrong my love for skincare hasn't subsided but this is definitely a makeup heavy favourites. So before I start rambling about my love for all things pumpkin spice lets get started.
Pat McGrath Lust 004 Lipstick
Could this be the same colour as pumpkin spice??? BAD JOKE
This full colour mat lipstick is creamy, super pigmented and long-lasting. I would even go as far as saying this is one of the best lipstick formulas I've ever tried. As for the colour Flesh 2 is a perfect neutral nude that I think would suit many skin tones. At $30.00 a pop and only around for a limited time I can't recommend these enough. You can see a detailed review and swatches here.
Too Faced Better Then Sex Mascara
It seems like the whole beauty community loves this mascara. However despite all the positive reviews I have never been tempted to try it. Maybe it was the silly name? Maybe it was my love for drugstore mascara? Who knows, the most important thing is I finally got my hands on a sample of this mascara and it is nothing short of amazing. If your into big fluttery lashes you need to try this!! As a new Better Then Sex super fan I am without doubt going to get my hands on a full size as soon as possible.
Benefit Ready, Set, BROW!
My last run in with brow gel was not a pleasant one. I can't remember which brand it was, but it left me with hard, heavy eyebrows which I felt crunch every time I moved my face. This eye brow gel is the exact opposite, because while it tames your brows I don't find it heavy at all. To make matters better the fine brush does a great job at working product through your brows too. Another great sample this month that I will be adding to my stash soon.
Avene Ystheal Cream
Finally a retinol that doesn't cause irritation, redness or any of that nonsense. For those skincare obsessed like me, you have probably noticed these irritation free retinol's have been a skincare trend as of late. Nonetheless, unlike others Avene have cut out all the marketing gimmicks and delivered one of the best retinol's out there thats really affordable too.

Dior Skin Nude Air
It didn't take me long to figure out the Guerlain foundation didn't work for me. Normally I would be hesitant to return makeup, but since the Guerlain cost an astonishing $90.00 I was looking for perfection. I am getting way off topic here, but what I'm getting to is I exchanged the Guerlain for the Dior.... and I am in love! The Dior Skin Nude Air leaves a sheer wash of pigment to the face, which prefects the skin, all whole feeling weightless. Like I said I am in love with this foundation so be on the lookout for a review soon!
4 makeup to 1 skincare... that might be a new record for me! Anyways ladies like always thank you for reading. To my Canadian's I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving long weekend.
