For my first official blog post I decided to do an October Favorites! I always love reading these and I have some products that need to be recognized for being fricken A-MAZZZING.
I believe that spending hundreds of dollars on makeup is crazy considering I’m so young and barely make a hundred dollars in a week, 4 out of the 5 products I will list are drugstore and can be bought at Walmart, CVS, Target, etc. The other product I received in my Ipsy bag (I think Ipsy is totally genius)
The first product I will be talking about is….
L’oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream (Medium)
I would rate this product 4.5 out of 5! I picked this up at my local Walmart for about $8. My skin is normally oily so I don’t like wearing things that clog my pores, and I also have pretty clear skin so I usually don’t feel the need to wear face makeup. I wanted something that would give me shear coverage and just even out my skin tone. I did my research on BB’s and decided to give this one a go! It goes on so evenly and smooth and leaves my complexion looking flawless! I can wear it a little more than 8 hours before I get oily, but I also get oily extremely fast so I am very impressed. I like to blot with oil absorbing sheets usually around the 5 hour mark. I definitely would recommend to someone who wants something light that will give them a nice even complexion.
The next product I want to talk about is..
Nourish Organic Argan Face Serum
I received this little gem in my October Ipsy bag. I have only been using for a couple weeks but so far I am OBSESSED. Usually, I would never put any type of oil on my face because my skin is usually disgustingly oily…but my skin has decided to play some tricks and go extremely dry on me for the Winter. I definitely needed some moisture put back into my skin so I decided this would be the perfect product. I put it on after moisturizing and a little goes a long way! After it is rubbed into my skin it feels so soft and the dryness instantly goes away. My skin stays smooth all day and to my surprise I do not get oily from it. This retails for about $24. It is a little too pricey for my budget so when I run out I will probably try a drugstore alternative. I will keep you posted if I find a dupe!
The next product is…
NYX Dark Circle Corrector Concealer (light/pale)
This concealer brings me back to life! I bought mine at CVS for about $6. When wearing this I like to wear it under my everyday concealer. The salmon color cancels out the darkness and really lightens up my under eye. I apply it with my fingers and let the warmth melt it into my skin. This concealer really makes my under eyes look flawless. I wouldn’t recommend piling it on because it can get cakey and cause your under eyes to crease. I like to set it with my ELF HD translucent powder.
My next product is..
L’oreal Telescopic Mascara (black)
GET THIS MASCARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so obsessssssed with this! I honestly think this is better than any other high-end mascara. It dramatically lengthens my lashes and doesn’t get clumpy. I never have to go past two coats and it also is great for bottom lashes. I got this at Walmart for only $7!! How can you go wrong?!
Last but not least…
NIVEA A Kiss of Smoothness Hydrating Lip Care
This product is a long time favorite. The reason why I put it in my October Favorites was because now that it’s getting cold my lips are getting extremely chapped, I need something that is gonna make them smooth and stay smooth. You can get this at any drugstore for just a couple bucks and it will last you for months. It has a light scent and it’s a fat stick so it gets your whole lips!
*Great product for getting really soft unchapped lips*
ELF Lip Exfoliator!! It’s only a couple $$ and it leaves your lips perfectly prepped and smooth for your chapstick..highly recommend!!
This concludes my October Favorites! I really hope you enjoyed reading this and found it helpful. Please reach out if you have any tips, comments, or ideas for more post! Thank you so much for reading and please pass my blog onto your friends! 🙂
