Fall Favorites!

Hey beauty junkies! It just snowed where I live and that means it's winter to me. I don't know about you guys, but I love the changing seasons. Maybe because we experience drastic changes and when it's winter it's like BAM! Winter is here overnight.

Since I'm not one who tends to do monthly favorites, and I love favorites posts, so I thought I could do seasonal favorites! What do you guys think? It'll just be a big pile of stuff that I show you and it will be extra long with lots of pictures. I don't know, we'll see how it plays out.

Here's an overview of all the stuff I've collected. There's a mixture of a whole bunch of things and I'll go into depth about each of them.

I've been loving these Real Technique Brushes that I got in a beginner set. These are all of their eye brushes, and I don't know if all of the brushes that are in the set are pictured here because I don't keep them in the holder that they came in. But these brushes are really inexpensive and they don't shed and they are just worth all the hype that they get. I'm definitely going to pick up some of their face brushes. (maybe after the Beauty Blender? If you have a review, link it below! I'm looking into getting one)

I did reviews on both of these products if you want to know more about them, click the link. But Oh, my goodness, Holika Holika Aqua Petit BB Cream is so freaking amazing, I already purchased a backup and it's on it's way. I don't think I can live without this stuff because it just feels so light and it makes my skin look sooo good. If you haven't tried it yet, I suggest going and getting it right now. And for the Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Pact, this is the only powder that actually helps with my oil and it just makes my face look brighter and more awake. And with those late night study sessions, I need it. I hit pan on this and the label is rubbing off. That's how you know that a product is well-loved. ;)

You guys know that my first lipsticks were the Revlon Lip Butters and I did do a review on them. But I did pick up some extra shades that were more fall appropriate and they are just freaking gorgeous. 

Red Velvet is just a deep red that looks really scary in the tube and by the packaging, but the Revlon Lip Butters make it really easy to pull off. And since this fall was all about deep colors, I though it was perfect. Now, Candy Apple is a really bring orange-red that will suit people with a yellow or neutral undertone beautifully. If you're scared to rock a red, this one is also really easy to pull off.

These products are basically the only things I put on my cheeks for this fall, mainly because I didn't have anything else. I don't have many blushes but I did pick up the Wet N' Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink. For $2, thing stuff is amazing. The pigmentation is great, the color payoff is nice, and the color suits me very well. I don't know what else to say about it other than I think it's great. I did a review on the Benefit Hoola Bronzer so I'm not going to go into too much detail, but this is really pigmented, it lasts a long time, and will fit a lot of skin tones.

I have a lot of eye makeup to talk about. I got the Urban Decay Naked Basics Pallet which has the perfect shadows for everyday wear. The reason why I didn't do a review is because the darkest color shattered and it's not pretty at all, and you guys probably have already seen a ton of reviews on this already. Maybelline has been knocking it out of the park with their eyeshadows lately. I did do a review on the Maybelline Color Tattoo In Barely Branded and love it. But the Color Tattoo Pigment in Breaking Bronze is a fairly new purchase and it is soo pretty! If fall was an eyeshadow, this would be it. The L'Oreal Lacquer Liner in Bronze Bronze has been the only eyeliner I use for months. Whether it's to tight-line, wing out, or just my normal liner, I'm using this. It's not actually bronze, it's a brown, I don't know why it's called bronze. But this is perfect for everyday use. Finally, I picked up the ELF Eyelid Primer and for $1, it's amazing. I really do notice a difference in the longevity and pigmentation in my eyeshadows when I use this.

I never talk about fashion on this blog, but I've been slowly getting into it. The Red Plaid Button Up is from Forever21. I usually wear it open with a tanktop underneath or tie the bottom in a knot. The Cozy Cream Sweater is from Target. This sweater is so comfortable. I would wear it every day if I could. It's a little bit over sized so I can wear it with leggings and not feel weird because it covers my bum! And the Brown Detailed Combat Boots are also from Target. I actually bought them with my very first paycheck and I don't regret it. The flaps do have a serape fabric in the inside, but they do zip up to look like a normal brown combat boot. I like that I can wear them two ways and paired with these two tops, I look put together without any work.

And now for the random picks! Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin is my favorite book this fall. It's really intense, magical, sexy, and gory all in one. There's too much sex for my taste, but it's still a fantastic book and the characters are amazing. The plot, don't even get me started on the plot, just go read it or even watch the TV show. (I haven't seen it yet). My friend's mom works at Bath and Body Works and I get discounts on everything I get there and Sweater Weather smells absolutely divine. It's got a very cozy, fresh scent that just makes you want to put on sweatpants and lounge on the couch with some tea.

There is one thing that I have to add before I let you go, and that is my favorite music pick for fall! I have discovered Jhameel a few weeks ago and have been obsessed. He has his own youtube channel and makes his own music. He's super nice and he even retweeted my tweet! My all time favorite song is Come and Lie. It is so freaking sweet and calming and sad at the same time. I listen to it in my art class and it's just beautiful. Go and listen to it. I'll have the link here. Another song that I absolutely love and I think that a lot of other people will, too is White Lie. I showed this song to my friend and she fell in love with him and his music right away.

That's it! All of the products and random things I've been loving fall of 2013! What do you guys think? If any of you have tried these products or did a review on them, let me know! I love hearing your opinions. I'll see you next time! XD
