My Top Five Favourite Products for Fall

Time for me to get back on track with my monthly favourites. This month was really good for me. I kept my makeup at a minimum but have five favourites which I brought with me everywhere! Thank God I carry a large purse.

Mary Kay® Kohl Eyeliner in Golden Illusion ($18.00 CDN)
In almost every makeup look I do, I highlight my inner corners. I love using rich golds because they make my eyes pop. This kohl applies so smoothly. Which is important when you're dealing with delicate areas like your eyes! Plus it's smear-proof.

Victoria Secret Sheer Body Lotion ($24.00 CDN)
I wash my hands a lot. It's Fall and I'm trying my best NOT to get sick! I love the scent of Victoria.
Key notes are: Red berries, Victoria rose and crème brûlée. Isn't that yummy! It's a sweet and sexy scent which is not too powerful to be worn in the office.

Almay color + care liquid lip balm ($8.95 CDN)
I've been in love with these for months. I got a sneak peak  back in June at an Almay event. LOVE them! They're non-sticky, shiny, conditioning and pigmented. They also show up on pigmented lips like mine. I should add that they are gluten-free & hypoallergenic.

Clinique Superprimer Face Primers ($29.99 CDN)
It's very important to use a primer when you're going to wear foundation. Primers make your foundation last longer and usually have some additional benefits. Clinique has come out with a long list of primers. I should add that there is one that colour corrects dullness in deeper skin tones!  It's not chalky like other primers and it's very lightweight. In the formula, there are very tiny micro-crystals which I assume make your skin took more illuminated.  I would definitely add this to my list of top 5 primers for dark skin.

L'oreal Super Slim liquid liner (10.99 CDN)
I love slim liners. They give me more precision to choose the type of liner I want. This formula is quick drying and long lasting. This is really important in the winter. It's also suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Have you tried any of these products?

Beauty News: Montagne Jeunesse, Victoria Secret & Philosophy

Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Masques

Last May, I had the opportunity to go to the Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Masques event hosted my FarleyCo. I've been a long time user of the masques and couldn't wait to hear about the new line:  Glacial Clay, Red Earth &  Dead Sea Mud Clay.

Glacial Clay
Glacial Clay, sourced from Canada’s Northwest Coast, cools, rehydrates and clears pores deep down to remove impurities. Sourced from the glacial heights of Scandinavia, nutrient-rich anti-oxidant Cloudberries is an anti-oxidant that soothes the skin and high in nutrients.
Red Earth Clay Spa 
Prepare your skin for a truly incredible, fresh pulped and juiced, deep cleansing journey. Montagne Jeunesse has infused Mediterranean Clay with suitably spicy Cinnamon and pulped Pomegrantes to protect. This juicy boost will captivate your skin and senses.

These products are $2.49 CAN and all vegetarian friendly. 

Fabulous by Victoria's Secret

I love floral scents for the summer because they are light and not over powering. One of the scents that I have in rotation at the moment is Fabulous by Victoria Secret ($65 USA).
Forever sexy. Forever Fabulous. Go glam in this thrilling blend of juicy currant, osmanthus blossom and pink freesia from our Victoria’s Secret Fabulous collection. Spray on eau de parfum for irresistibly fresh Fabulous scent that lingers.
Notes: Juicy currant, osmanthus blossom and pink freesia

This fragrance is very feminine plus can also be purchased in a body cream and lotion.
total matteness

For the nights when it's hot but there is no sun out, you need a product to keep you matte. Total matteness from Philosophy ($40.00 CAN) would be one of my picks.
A serum designed to instantly refine the appearance of pores and improve the look of pores over time.
Tip: A little bit goes a long way. I made the mistake the first time to use a lot and once it dried it didn't "stay" on my face. I just washed my face and tried it again with least product. No problems!
Visibly reduce the size and appearance of pores with this powerful, mattifying serum. Lentil seed extract helps support the pore wall, making pores less apparent, while salicylic acid helps remove build-up of dead cells around the pore wall, brightening their darkened appearance. Natural bamboo extract helps absorb excess oil and control shine for a soft-touch finish.
This serum can be used as a primer. Use it on dry skin for the best results.
