Beauty Ramblings: Fall Favorites!

October 7, 2014

I have always been clear here on the blog that I am the last person who would be considered a "guru" in any way, shape or form – especially when it comes to beauty.  When I have a bit of down time, I do love to watch YouTube make-up tutorials and "get ready with me videos" to try and learn new techniques and what the latest and greatest beauty products are, but for the most part I randomly just try new products to see if they will be kept in my rotation.  I am a pretty practical person and when I learn a tip or trick, I stick to it. I love it when my favorites are easily accessible and affordable.  Now that's just too good not to's what I am loving lately:

{Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish.  These polishes are in one word: AMAZING.  I try not to use that word too much or throw it around too loosely these days, but  these qualify as amazing and I am so glad they exist.  I think I have mentioned this before but I have really oily nail beds and regular nail polishes don't last long on me AT ALL.  There have been times when I have noticed a chip not even a full day after getting a manicure.  The longest a regular manicure has ever lasted for me, without chips, was about 3 days, tops.  Even salon gel manicures only last about 5-6 days, where others I know have had salon gel manicures last for 2 weeks without chipping. This Sally Hansen Gel have lasted a full week on my nails with veeeeery minimal chipping!  I love the color choices, the formula, the brush, the drying time....  I have not one complaint.  These are an absolute favorite of mine at the moment.  Here are a few of my favorite shades:
{"Wine Stock"}

{"Crème de la Crème"}

{"Pretty Piggy"}
{Wet n' Wild Ultimate Minerals Bronzer in "Amber Glow".  I have been getting so many compliments on my skin recently and I think this has a lot to do with it.  I use this bronzer as a blush on the apples of my cheeks and then take whatever's left on the brush and swipe it down my nose and it gives the perfect warm glow to my skin.  I love that it's not too shimmery.  It's a light formula and a little goes a long way – which is always a plus.}
{Ok, and speaking of compliments on my skin, I am 100% sure that this MAC Fix + spray has everything to do with that. Lol! I have been missing out for so long because I just recently discovered this at the end of the summer. This gives my face a flawless and dewy finish that is just perfect.  It sets my make-up and makes it last the entire day – even my bronzer/blush, which was not always the case.  I can NEVER be without this spray, ever, ever! I love it so much!  If you haven't tried it, please consider it, you won't regret it.}
{If you remember reading about these Wet n' Wild lipsticks here on the blog two years ago, you know how much I LOVE them, so I won't ramble too much but these are my absolute favorite lipsticks. Above and below are two of my favorites from the latest released shades from the Fall 2014 Limited Edition Collection.}
{"Urban Night"}
{"Bordeaux Boulevard"}
{And lastly, this Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Wash is seriously just that – pampering.  When I get out of a HOT shower after using this, I feel so relaxed.  And I am pretty addicted to this scent – "Shea Butter with Warm Vanilla"... it smells heavenly.  It's soft and feminine and the fragrance is subtle but long-lasting. I LOVE it!  I hope this never ever ever EVER gets discontinued, I will be using this and only this from now on.}
