Fall Beauty Must-Haves

Here’s some of my favorite beauty picks for fall, but let’s be honest–they can work all year round. These products are just some of the ones I’ve tried recently and really liked!

1.  Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover, $6.49.  Once again, I ran-out of my currently product and needed to try something new.  This replaces my Mary Kay make-up remover, and will probably continue to do so.

2. Sephora Perfecting Eye Primer, $14.  I picked up this stuff to try out because it is much cheaper than the MAC product I was using.  I’ve been very satisfied with this substitute!

3.  Urban Decay Naked2 Basics palette, $29.  I finally had to try out this cult favorite, and I’m a huge fan of the colors in this palette.  I do wish, however, that there was a little more color-payoff with the 2 lightest shades.

4.  Benefit Boi-ing Industrial-Strength Concealer, $20 (I scored this super cheap with a coupon + Birchbox points!).

5.  Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Contour Trio in Sweet, $21.  Here, you have your blush, bronzer, and highlighter all-in-one!  It’s affordable and compact for those of us who do our makeup on the go.

6.  Younique Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, $29.  You can read my review here, and be sure to enter the giveaway while you’re at it!

7.  No. 7 Beautiful Eyebrow Pencil in Brown, $6.99.  My eyebrow pencil recently ran-out, and I was looking to try something new.  Enter a quick trip to Target, and there you have it!  The color is great and it has a spoolie on the end to help naturalize your penciled-in brows.

8.  OPI Nail Lacquer in Just Beclaus, $9.50 (currently part of a promotion at Ulta, but I picked it up for less than $5 last week by using points + coupon).  This color is perfect for fall + the holiday season!!!

I didn’t include any lip items, because I just did a post on my favorite lip products for fall–you can catch that here in case you missed it.

    I have never tried any of the Naked palettes, but have always been curious! I just picked up the Maybelline "The Nudes" palette and am eager to see how that turns out. Love the Boi-ing concealer, and that nail polish shade looks gorgeous!

    Thank you for a review of these favorite items of yours as I have not used any of them before. I especially want to get my hands on some Sephora make up and O.P.I nail polish. Rachel xo

    Great items. I might have to try a brow pencil. I currently have a power. I feel like I'm clueless when it comes to eyebrows.

    I'm always looking for new products to try so it's so nice to read reviews! I love that polish color!

    Kat, I seriously just purchased that as well! It was BOGO 50% at Ulta last week, plus a coupon. I'm going to do a comparison post on the Naked Basics2 palette vs. the Maybelline Nudes. Wanna do another link-up that involves your review???

    Rachel, I always like reading about new products as well:) I want someone else to try them before I do! I've really come to like the Sephora brand–I think they have great products at very reasonable prices. And I'm loving the linkup!

    Becky, you really should try an eyebrow pencil! I think it's easier than the powder, and I really like the ones with the spoolies because it takes away the harshness of the pencil lines:)

    I was very surprised by how much I like this color! It was exactly what I was looking for. And I'm all about the reviews!

    Della, the next time I'm in, we're doing a makeover session. I'm going to teach you how to use the eyebrow pencil, and how to wear multiple colors of eye make-up!!!!!!
