October Favorites


Phyx Intense Overnight Repair Masque by Kronos: I discovered this hair mask about five years ago and I’m so happy that I did.  It’s terrific.  If you doubt me, note that it holds The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for #1 overnight hair treatment.  Amazon has the best price.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream: My favorite drugstore BB cream to date.  Applies like a sheer and creamy tinted moisturizer.  The tube is huge compared to other BB creams so it lasts forever.  It only comes in two shades.  I use the lighter one, light/medium.  Available at drugstores.

Clinique All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage: I ran out of my Holy Grail de-puffer so I decided to give this one a try and it’s become a close 2nd.  It has a metal ball applicator that’s refreshing in the morning.  @Clinique counters everywhere.

Pop Beauty Pop Portfolio: This eye palette is well used and well loved.  It’s probably the best $20 I ever spent on eye shadow.  I have the the Picture Pop version which is now discontinued.  These shadows are deeply pigmented and blend well.  This is a shimmer/satin finish palette.  There are no matte shades here.  Pop Beauty’s summer palette is out now which is lighter and brighter than this one if you want to check it out.  Ulta sells Pop Beauty.

Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate: A completely luxe sculpting, contouring, and highlighting palette.  This was a Christmas present to myself in 2012.  It’s an amazing, high quality product and worth the $75 price tag if you love contouring your face.  It does last a long time so you get your money’s worth.  I use this consistently and I’ve just barely hit pan.  I have Intensity One.  @Saks Fifth Avenue.

24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils by Urban Decay: My favorite eye liner pencils of all time.  The color range makes my heart flutter.  They glide on easily as the name suggests, and stay put all day!  I have Zero, Lust, Covet, Crash, and Stash.  @Sephora or Ulta.  An excellent dupe would be the Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal pencils by Rimmel London.  They don’t have the color selection Urban Decay does but they work just as well at a fraction of the price.  Available at drugstores.

Vintage gold and rhinestone earrings found in Connecticut.
