Yes, I am still alive! If you're my friend on Twitter, then you know this if not then you're about to find out. I've been in Istanbul for the past two weeks hence the hiatus. Time seems to fly much faster here, I feel like everyday I wake up, it's already time for bed again! I missed blogging (and tweeting!) too much so I'm back to blogosphere now, expect more posts from me :)
I picked up a few new products in October and have been loving those a lot. My favorite purchase this month has to be Chanel Taupe Grise - definitely HG status.
Lovejoy is one of my favorite fall blushes, it seems to go with every kind of makeup I do. I also find it to be wearable both for day and nighttime looks.
theBalm Cabana Boy
Cabana Boy quickly became one of my favorite blushes and is also perfect for fall. It's a mauve/dusty rose with a little shimmer. I think it makes a great everyday blush for fall; looks pretty with neutral looks - that's how I usually wear it.
Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer
I have picked up the glamoflauge concealer specifically for my under eye area. I bought both Fair and Tan; fair for days I want a lighter under eye area that helps me look more awake and Tan for when I am darker. I love that this concealer lasts all day, covers everything and you only need a tiny bit of it. It's very affordable - $6.99 at Walmart!
Pippa was one of my first Julep nail polishes and since then it's been a go-to shade for me. It's the perfect nude for any occasion and is almost identical to Essie's Topless & Barefoot. Except with Pippa, you only need one coat for perfect opacity and drying time is cut in half if not more.
MAC Paint Pots in Nubile & Vintage Selection
I think I wore Nubile every single day since buying it this month. It's a matte, light pink/nude that wears well alone or as a base. I usually wear it paired with black winged out eyeliner. Vintage Selection is a shimmery nude, that needs a little bit of layering to get the color to show up more opaque. I find Nubile and Vintage Selection to look very pretty together.
Chanel Eyeshadow in Taupe Grise
My favorite purchase of October! I have wanted this beautiful eyeshadow for a very long time and finally decided to check it off my list. It's a shimmery, dark taupe with a hint of purple. It looks absolutely gorgeous on the crease with a neutral lid, like a very light peach or beige. Taupe Grise is highly pigmented and is buildable. Definitely recommend it if you've been dreaming about it, it's worth every penny!
Korres Black Eyeliner
I have actually bought this Korres eyeliner a long time ago but just got around to using it recently. I think it's a great eyeliner that lasts for many hours. It's not as soft as say Urban Decay 24/7 liner or Milani Liquif'eye liners but nonetheless goes on smoothly and is easily blended.
I wish everyone a wonderful November, it's one of my favorite times of the year! :)
