Fall Favorites: Beauty & More



By Bridget Fitzpatrick
FALL FAVORITES

Morphe 35OM Palette: This palette is beautiful. It’s full of fall colors including reds, oranges, and browns. The palette is filled of only matte colors, but there are versions that come with all shimmer, or a mixture of both. The set is very affordable for such amazing pigment.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water: This product is a fantastic makeup remover. Taking off eye makeup can be hard, but this does it. I just wet a small cotton circle and with a few swipes, my makeup is gone. 

Too Faced Hangover Primer: Made with coconut water, this primer is EVERYTHING! Using only a small amount, you can feel the primer get tacky on your face but also moisturize. The primer helps your makeup last perfectly all day.

Nunzio Saviano Anti-Frizz Sheets: These portable sheets are made with coconut oil to help maintain frizz. I like to swipe one across my hair on humid days to calm down my frizz. 

Wet Brush: The wet brush is the PERFECT brush. Though it seems like a cheap one you could buy at the dollar store, it gets through knots easily.

X Infinity by Watsky: Watsky kills it yet again with this record. Through his mix of rap and slam poetry, Watsky sends messages through his music and provides a commentary on the state of our society. Such songs as “Pink Lemonade” and “Stick to Your Guns” make this album an instant hit. 

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur: This book is extremely thought provoking, to say the least. Writing about her personal experiences, the author pulls the reader into a journey of loss and the harsh realities of life through her poetry.

Model Co Power Lash Mascara: I received this in a monthly subscription bag and it is MAGIC. I use it for my bottom lashes and as one coat on my upper lashes. My lashes grow so nicely and there are no clumps whatsoever. 

Torrid Faux Leather Zip Ankle Booties: These shoes have been my obsession this past month. They are perfect for a night out or just for a casual boot. These are for wide feet, which is perfect, because a lot of people with wide feet can’t find shoes like these for them. 



FALL FAILS

Garnier Blackhead Eliminating Scrub: I wanted this to work so badly. Overall, it hasn’t done anything to remove my blackheads or pores. 

NYX Liquid Illuminator: These are just a huge miss for me. The colors don’t work, and they’re terrible to blend out. I love NYX as a brand, just not these illuminators. 

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks: These are not the matte liquid ones, but the ones found in tubes. I cannot say how much I hate these. The tip is fabric-ish and I just can’t deal with it. The application is terrible, and the feel of them is so weird. They also stain your lips. I do not recommend, although I haven’t tried their new matte ones. 

NYX Loose Glitter: Everyone raves about these, and maybe I’m not using them right, but I’m not a fan. They fall off and get everywhere. 

Lush Dry Shampoo: As much as I love Lush, this product is terrible. It doesn’t come in an aerosol can, which is good, but it comes out very quickly and in big clumps. The product sticks to already clean hands. This product does NOTHING for your hair. 

Buxom Mascara: I don’t remember the exact one I bought, but it was too expensive and not worth it. It does NOTHING to my lashes. Skip it. 

Tarte Glossy Lip Paint: I bought this thinking it was a liquid lip, so I guess it’s on me. This is way too glossy and just completely comes off. It’s supposed to be a glossy liquid lip sort of thing, and I’m just not a fan. 

Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in the color Periwinkle: This was so so disappointing. I was so excited because liquid colorful eyeliners are so cute, and this is the cutest shade, but it had no pigmentation. I would go for the Too Faced Sketch Liners or the NYX Vivid Brights.
