My 5 October Favorites

As we reach the end of October I thought that I should pick up on Favorites posts again.  I'm going to limit it to my 5 favorites of the month to make it easier to get a post up and not overdo it each month.  Hopefully I will get better with these, especially since I don't use makeup everyday it should be easier to pull a few things that I really loved during the month. Without further adieu, here are my favorites from October (complete with swatches); Enjoy!

Ipsy October 2014 "Beauty Candy"

Happy Friday!

Today I'm sharing my October Ipsy bag with the theme "Beauty Candy". I always take a peek at my Glam Room before I receive my bag because I like to know what's coming and to be honest I wasn't too pumped about this bag.  This past week I happened to watch a YouTube video from MissGlamorazzi and actually was interested in the products she was using. When I received my bag I remembered 3 of the items she used in her Everyday Fall Makeup Routine and was instantly excited to use them.  I hope this bag grows on me even more this month as i use the products, I'll probably give away the Ecru hair balm but I see myself enjoying the lipstick, eyeliner, and cleansing cloths.  I've already tried the Ayres Body butter on my hands and it is a great thick cream for my dry Fall hands, the scent isn't my favorite but it works! Enjoy!

My bag this month:
Ayres Patagonia Body Butter
City Color Be Matte Lipstick "Cappuccino"
ECRU New York "Acacia Protein BB Cream Beauty Balm for Hair"
Skone Cosmetics TATTOOED Waterproof Eyeliner
Skyn Iceland Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths

Zoya Spring 2014 Magical Pixie Collection

Hi Girls!

I cannot explain fully how excited I was to receive this collection, it is absolutely gorgeous! I could only describe this as "Fairytales in a bottle", because that's how these nail polishes come off to me.  The texture consists of 3 dimensional chunky glitter and it's just as amazing as it sounds.  I loved how these polishes applied and even more how easy they were to remove; I didn't notice any extra effort more than removing a normal glitter polish.  All 3 sparkle in the sun and I got tons of questions and compliments on what they were and how people could get them so they are definitely a conversation piece.  I hope that Zoya has plans for more of these in every color imaginable because they are simply gorgeous! Enjoy!
