October Favorites 2012 ♡

 Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin
I finally purchased this even though it's been raved about for the longest time. It gives great coverage and it helps keep my face matte for a longer period of time.
Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker Blush in Rose
I have a full review of this here. This blush is supposed to adjust in shade according to your skin's pH balance. It's a very pigmented pink blush that gives gorgeous color to the cheeks. It lasts throughout a whole working day which is great for a drugstore blush.
Loreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
This gives my skin a nice smooth base to work on. It allows my foundation to glide on and blend smoothly. It's a must to prevent my makeup from sticking to my dry patches.
Almay Clear Complexion Concealer + Treatment Gel
I haven't tried the gel part of this yet but I do like the concealer part. It covers really well and blends easily. It does smell weird so if you're sensitive to smells, maybe you should pass on this one.
Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Walking on Eggshells
This is a gorgeous neutral palette that is perfect for everyday use. It's definitely my go-to palette.
Maybelline Baby Lips in Grape Vine
A sheer Berry shade lip balm that's great for fall. If you're not willing to go all out on the dark lips look for fall, then you can try this sheer balm since it will give you a hint of color without going overboard.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush
A Burgundy shade that's great for that dark lip for Fall. Glides on easily and leaves a stain on your lips.

10 Favorite Drugstore Lip Products ♥

1. Carmex Lip Balm
Soothes my lips and keeps them moisturized. I love this lip balm. I also really love the Jack Black lip balm that I got from Eileen! But I wasn't sure if that's a drugstore lip product.
2. ChapStick
My first ever lip balm that has kept my lips from chapping in the cold weather.
3.E.L.F. Glossy Gloss in Wild Watermelon
A lovely opaque lip gloss that you don't need to wear over a lipstick. It's a steal with the price tag of $3.
4. Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom
Moisturizing with a nice natural pink tint. It is 100% natural which is a definite plus.
5. Revlon Balm Stain in Crush
A burgundy shade that glides on easily onto the lips. I've been loving this for this Fall season. 
6. Loreal Color Riche Lipstick in Sheer Linen
A neutral lip shade that is great for everyday wear. I love that it's not drying like other lip sticks tend to be. This line reminds me of the Revlon lip butters.
7. Revlon Lip Gloss in Peach Petal
A pretty peachy nude shade that's opaque and great to layer over other lip products.
8. Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch
A bright Barbie pink tinted lip balm that smells like Starburst candy. It has spf 20 which is a plus. I've been looking for this everywhere but it was always sold out, so when I finally found it, I was so happy.
9. Covergirl Smoothwear Lip liner in Wine
A dark vampy red that also makes for a great fall lip color. It glides on smoothly and I like using this as an all over lip color.
10. Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake
A baby pink creamy lipstick/balm.

Review: Loreal BB Cream / Magic Skin Beautifier

It has little beads which are supposed to adjust to your skin.
This is not like a typical bb cream that I'm used to.
It has a grainy texture from the beautifying beads.
It just looks like this white cream that dries matte after blended onto the skin.
 It claims to prime, hide imperfections, give skin an even complexion, and hydrate.
I only count this as a primer; It makes my foundation stick onto my skin better.
As for all the other claims, I do not see any results that back up those claims.
It doesn't give any coverage and it doesn't feel hydrating.
Overall, I am pretty disappointed in this bb cream, but I will continue to use it as a primer because I don't want to waste it.
