I'm still allowed to be excited about Halloween even if I don't trick-or-treat anymore, right?!
Anyway, here are my 7 beauty faves for this month, enjoy!
1. Paul Mitchell Smoothing Gloss Drops, $18.95
This product was recommended to me by my hairstylist when I asked for something that would smooth hair and tame frizz, and it's worked amazingly! I've heard a lot of people rave about the Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum, and though I haven't tried it yet, I think I will stick to this one. Also, it gives your hair that 'fresh out of the salon' smell, which I don't mind, but other people might.
This is a beautiful plum shade (described as terracotta and gold melange by MAC), which is perfect for fall. The pigmentation is pretty good considering it is a mineralize blush, and it can definitely be built up to go on darker. This is from the Heavenly Creatures Fall 2012 collection, which you may be able to find at your local CCO (cosmetic company outlet).
3. Mascara combo: Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume in Blackest Black, $8.99 and Clinique High Impact Curling in Black, $16
I don't really like these mascaras individually, but together they work pretty well. I find the Revlon one is too dry and the Clinique one is too wet, but when combined they even each other out and give me long/curled lashes. I curl my lashes, apply the Revlon mascara, apply the Clinique mascara and then curl my lashes again.
