I hope you all had a great weekend! 🙂
Although I’m a huge fashion lover, I’m also very much into beauty! I love playing with makeup, trying new hairstyles, immersing myself in a variety of skincare and finishing it all of with a spritz of fragrance. I’m also particularly knowledgeable in the skincare arena having worked for a dermatologist in the past – it’s definitely one of my passions!
Each month I have the opportunity to try out a ton of beauty products so I wanted to try something new by sharing my monthly favorites! I’ll be sharing things like makeup, fragrance, hair products, skincare, and beauty tools among others along with mini-reviews of each. I ALWAYS get asked which products I use for certain things and to be honest, it changes all the time! I do have my tried and true faves but I also like to change it up and try new things.
Read on for my October 2019 Beauty Faves!
October 2019 Beauty Faves
Diptyque Feuille de Lavande Candle
I loveeee Diptyque candles and up until this point, my favorite has been the rose scent but this lavender one is definitely up there! As you can imagine, it smells like lavender but it also has an earthy, woodsy scent so it’s really nice for fall. My husband also loved it! Sadly we both loved it so much that we already burned through this candle….luckily, I have a backup haha!
Some of my prized possessions are the antique items given to me by my mom. I have a ton of different things but some of my favorites are the gorgeous perfume bottles from her collection. The look of this bottle brings back memories of my childhood… putting on my mother’s makeup, donning her red heels and experimenting with her perfumes. It’s just SO beautiful and I have it displayed accordingly. The scent is a mix of florals and vanilla with a hint of earthy undertones. I’ve never smelled anything quite like it!
Givenchy Eyeshadow Palettes
These are from the fall collection and I am obsessed!!! I usually go neutral when it comes to eyeshadow but I love the pinks in this palette. They have a bit of sparkle without going over the top, blend well and are highly pigmented. The other palette is a set of lovely deep greens!
I’m a huge fan of Givenchy lipsticks and they are among my favorite to wear! These are also from the fall collection and I love that they are buildable for just the slightest hint of color or for a full on color explosion. These colors are pink and plum and the formula is super creamy with just a hint of sheen.
Pat McGrath Lipstick
I love this matte dusty mauve lip color! The finish is lightweight and creamy leaving behind the most beautiful hint of color. This is my first time trying anything from Pat McGrath and I’m really impressed! Plus the lipstick tube is out of this world beautiful with the gold sparkle and adorable lip detail.
Jill Stuart Beauty Glow Mask
I lovveeee Jill Stuart beauty products but this is actually the first time that I tried her skincare line! As you know, I’m a HUGE fan of face masks and I use one probably every other day depending on my skin’s needs. This is a peel-off mask that is girly and sparkly! It tightens the skin and leaves behind the smoothest complexion. I love using this one in the morning before putting on my skincare and makeup.
Jill Stuart Beauty Crystal Enhancer
This is a very interesting product. At first, I wasn’t sure what it was or how to use it but it’s actually a very lightweight serum! I’ve been using this during my daytime skincare routine. I’ll put it on after my mask or directly after cleansing. It leaves behind supple, hydrated skin and literally makes your skin glow.
Jill Stuart Beauty Crystallizer
I use this in conjunction with the Crystal Enhancer. This is a lightweight moisturizer that I have been using during my daytime skincare routine just before applying makeup. It adds subtle sparkle to skin to make it glow and moisturizes, brightens, tones and illuminates the skin. It’s also the perfect primer for makeup! My makeup goes on so smoothly for a flawless finish. I absolutely love this set!
Jill Stuart Blush
Another Jill Stuart fave! This blush is very light and perfect for that romantic, natural makeup look. I love using this for everyday and find the color very flattering. Plus the compact is just the most beautiful thing!
Jill Stuart Lipstick
I love these lipsticks! I’d say it’s more like a balm than a lipstick. It leaves behind the slightest hint of color and a shiny, creamy finish. It’s not long-lasting but I love the way it makes my lips feel – so smooth, nourished and hydrated!
I have an expansive collection of fragrances (one of these days I’ll have to share all of them with you!) and Givenchy is among my favorites. I have two of their scents already that I just adore for spring and summer! This one is a bit darker with a sophisticated mix of floral and woodsy scents. Not only is it lovely for fall but it would be perfect for date night or a holiday event!
Lancôme lipsticks are very prominent in my makeup collection and I have many different colors and finishes. This one, perhaps, is the creamiest of them all! It goes on so smooth, hydrates your lips and can be customized with buildable color. The finish is balm-like with a slight sheen.
I hope you loved my October 2019 Beauty Faves!
