Anyone else love the transition from summer to fall? The changing weather, fashion/beauty trends, and fall decorations always put me in such a great mood! I have a couple of favorites to round out the summer months. All of the products featured were used for a wedding that I went to at the beginning of August, and they performed so well the day of that I felt I definitely should share. I hope you enjoy reading!
Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara: $8.99
I’ve tried a ton of mascaras over the past few years. However, I always come back to this one because it’s one of the best. I have really long, curled eyelashes that need more volume, and my sister is the opposite, where she has shorter and straight, but full lashes. With this in mind, this mascara performs amazing on both of us. I love the bristles on the brush, because they are dense and packed. Because of the shape, they grab on to each individual lash, coating them evenly so they don’t look too clumpy.
NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in ‘Sandstorm’: $4.99
This is another drugstore favorite that performs as well as a higher end makeup product. I’ve been looking for lip liners that are neutral, and aren’t too creamy. I use lip liner to contour the outer portion of my lips so they look plump. This color is perfect because it’s close to my own lip color, just a little bit darker. I will probably go pick up more of the NYX liners, especially for the fall time when I will be using darker color lipsticks, so it doesn’t bleed.
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette: $38.00
I was gifted this palette from one of my best friends, and actually forgot I’ve had this palette before. A few years ago, they revamped the formula of the shadows, and changed the packaging. I am so happy I got the new version, because I can see how much they elevated everything. The palette layout makes so much sense, because they give you enough shadows to do a matte, basic look, with others to add for a look that would be more appropriate for going out at night. I used the shadows on myself, and I used them on my sister for the wedding we went to. We both loved how our looks turned out, and I was so pleased with how they performed. I am happy to have this in my collection!
Those are the three beauty products I’ve been loving this past month! Please let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations for me to try next month. I’m very excited to do more posts about fall makeup and fashion. Don’t forget to like this post, and follow my blog for more beauty insight!
