October Glossybox and Birchbox

Even though they neglected to send me the enzyme facial scrub {or whatever it was},
I really liked a couple products from this box.
I have heard of Carol's Daughter - but never tried anything from the brand. This lotion is pretty fabulous. I LOVE the scent- warm and sweet is the best way I can describe it. I also like that it doesn't have any nasty parabens, and the fact that it is not tested on animals. Bonus points in my book!
The ModelCo lipstick/lipgloss duo was another great item. The lipstick is like a brownish nude color and has a nice texture. The lipgloss is a really pretty peachy pink that reminds me of Nars Turkish Delight. I like these layered together.
I am not going to sugar coat it - but this box was the absolute worst. I am not going to complain though, it is only 10 bucks. I suppose my only issue is that I feel like most of these items are things that you can get for free at makeup counters or sephora/ulta.
I did however really like the tea and the luna bars. I will actually purchase these items when
 I go grocery shopping. The DDF cleanser was okay - it has a gross chemically smell and I haven't noticed any change in my skin.

Hunter Boots

I have been wanting a pair of Hunter wellingtons for a while now. But I felt like I shouldn't buy them until the weather changed and I would wear them. So now that it's fall (yay!), I am having such a hard time deciding what color! I love the green, red, gray, and black. Normally I would buy which ever was the most versatile- but all of these would work with just about anything in my wardrobe. I hate how indecisive I am sometimes! Haha. It can really be frustrating! So of course I took to pinterest to see how people wear them. This did not help my situation..

Hmmmm.. What to do now? Decisions, decisions..

Friday Favorites

Chanel Vertigo--I bought this so long ago and just got around to use it- super pretty! 
But much darker than I thought it would be.
Favorite snack as of late..
Strawberries + Justin's Chocolate Almond Butter + Toast. 
Finally tried THE sock bun!
Much trickier than expected, but I think I like this.

Obsessed with YSL lippies. Can't get enough of them!
The pretty packaging doesn't help, either. :-)

Favorite Fall Looks

I am loving the rich colors this season! Especially mustard, burgundy, and teal. These look great paired with a neutral, of course. But I really like them with gray or black. Definitely plan on purchasing some denim in a few of these shades!
The deep plum lip is absolutely stunning. I bought a lipstick similar to this a little bit ago, but I am not sure if I am gutsy enough to pull that off.. 
I have been lusting after that Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac in Eggplant. Have to have it!

Essie Stylenomics and September Glossybox

I wasn't planning on buying anything from the Essie fall 2012 collection.. but every time I went into the drugstore, I would always pick up this color, and then put it back. So I decided last week it was coming home with me. I am glad I bought it, I really like it. I would say it's a blackish green, but a bit more green than black. And very glossy!
I added some gold glitter to the tips the other day- loved this!
This is way late {as always} but here is my September Glossybox. It was definitely a good one! I had just run out of my Boscia BB cream that I loved, so I was really excited to see this Missha BB cream in my box. Apparently Korean BB creams are the real deal, and all of the western brands are just glorified tinted moisturizers. This stuff is definitely superior to anything I have tried.
I also really liked the shampoo and conditioner. It made my hair way silky and smooth.
The lipstick is pretty but I don't know if I will wear it. It's like a lighter pink. And I have yet to try the mattifying gel, but I hear great things about it, so we will see! :-)
