Happy Halloween Eve Eve Eve Eve!!
I am so excited because today, I’m partnering with one of my VERY favorite brands SEPHORA and ShopStyle and bringing you a fun sponsored post with all of my October faves!
You girls know that I’m a Sephora super-fan, so this was an easy post for me to get excited about…and bonus, it’s a SUPER-SIZED EDITION! I have not one but TWO videos for you (one makeup, the other hair) so that you can really see me using these products.
I really get giddy over beauty 🙂 .
Okay, here I am ready to conquer the day now that I have my hair and makeup done thanks to a few new Sephora products along with a great curling wand too.
I wanted you to really catch my enthusiasm and see me apply some of my faves from this month…
…so I made a little video! Watch it below to see me apply many of these products plus specifically explain why I’m loving NARS Jumbo Orgasm Blush, Mini Orgasm Double Duo, Mini Iconic Matte Revolution Lipstick Trio, Natural Eyes Eyeshadow Palette, Lancome’s Grandiose Mascara, and Point Made 24-Hour Gel Eyeliner.
I don’t know about you, but for me, it really helps to see a video. If you can’t watch right now, here’s a little breakdown of these favorite products for October…
#1 Mini Orgasm Double Duo: I’ve raved about this blush for YEARS, so when I saw this fun little duo that included not only the cult-classic Orgasm blush but a highlighter too, I was sold!
#2 Speaking of which, this NARS Jumbo Orgasm Blush was a no-brainer for me! I will try other blushes from time to time, but for years (I would say over 10!) this blush here has always been the one I go back to time and time again, so this larger size made me so happy!
#3 Point Made 24-Hour Gel Eyeliner: My friend Shanna and I talk about our latest finds at Sephora every single week. She was raving the other day about a new eyeliner that she had recently tried and loved. I literally handed her my phone with the Sephora app open and asked her to please look it up for me (because she was gushing!). I was so pleased with the price point, that I added to cart and have been using ever since. I have been VERY loyal to my eyeliner and hesitant to try anything else, but this one goes on extremely smooth, stays all day and doesn’t smudge.
#4 Speaking of Shanna, she is the one who I proclaimed is the Perfume Queen! Last year, she introduced me to Replica’s By The Fireplace, and I love it so much for fall and winter that I’m already on my second travel-sized bottle. I like these smaller bottles for fun scents like this one that I don’t wear year around. It’s woodsy and very “winter”.
#5 You know how much I adore THIS eyeshadow palette, so I was excited to try this new Natural Eyes Eyeshadow Palette. These are perfect neutrals for keeping things simple or layering for a more dramatic affect.
#6 After I started using Drunk Elephant’s A-Passioni Retinol Cream, many of you told me to try their T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, so I did. I have been alternating them at night before applying my evening moisturizer and really think I see a difference already with dark spots and uneven skin tones. This is one of those brands YOU are always telling me to explore more often!
#7 In the video, I showed you how cute this Mini Iconic Matte Revolution Lipstick Trio really is. These lipsticks are the perfect size for pockets, small handbags and throwing in your purse. Plus, they’re all three great fall/winter shades.
#8 This Lancome’s Grandiose Mascara is another Shanna suggestion! I’ve been on the hunt for the best mascara since last December and not only Shanna but my mother-in-law both told me to try this one. The unique wand really helps you get in there and grab all of those tiny little lashes.
#9 And I couldn’t talk Sephora without reminding you that I’m OBSESSED with these Melted Matte liquid lipsticks. I wear them now every single day. They stay on all day long…and don’t rub off on my mask. Into You is my new fave.
#10 And finally, it’s always good to top off a matte lipstick with some gloss throughout the day. How pretty and perfect is this Jewel Lip Gloss in Pillow Talk? It goes great with that mini lipstick trio too!!
As always, I use this Caviar Stick in Blossom as my “primer” before applying my eye shadow.
Also, here’s a good comparison to the size difference between the two new NARS blush options.
And if you wanted an up close pic of the Mini Iconic Matte Revolution Lipstick Trio , here you go!
Now, I’m not super loyal to primers and often try a variety and share them here…but every single time I do, YOU GUYS tell me to try this one…
One more thing that’s a win…
…I can’t rave enough about my Bum Bum Cream. I’ve mentioned it a million times on here because it is my very favorite body cream. It’s hydrating, it’s not greasy, and it smells like heaven. Right now, they have an even larger bottle just in time for the dry winter months. PLUS…
…do I need to say more?! These three lip moisturizers are clearly winners at my house. I love all three and always have one in my desk drawer, my purse, in my bathroom and by my bed.
So, that was makeup. Now, I wanted to show you this speedy little video of me curling my hair with Drybar’s The Wrap Party Styling Wand…
I love a hair wand because they’re super easy to use and you don’t have to fuss with clamps. If you’re not holding the wand just right, you can still produce a curl…they really are pretty fool-proof. I love an easy little wave in my hair, so I made a quick video showing you how I achieve it with this tool here…
It’s easy, it’s quick, it’s little fuss, it’s how I’ve been curling my hair lately.
At night, I wash my hair, comb it out and then spray this Drybar Seashore Spritzer on it while damp. I go to sleep and the next morning, I use my Drybar Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush to smooth things over before applying my Olaplex oil and curling. After I curl, I set everything with Money Maker.
A little makeup, some hair, and we’re good to go! I love shopping at Sephora whether instore or online. They have everything I need for beauty all in one place…and bonus, I love being a member of their Beauty Insider Program! There are so many perks just for signing up to be a part of it…Beauty Insider Cash (to apply towards future orders), free standard shipping with no minimum and so much more! It makes shopping Sephora even easier!
I’m going to get a list together of holiday gift ideas from Sephora to share soon. If you have any new faves I should try next, please comment and let me know! Have the best day, friends!
