October Beauty Buys


Recently I’ve really been trying to cut costs, but sometimes I just can’t help but buy a new beauty product.  Here is what I bought this past month that I totally love and highly recommend!

NARS Lip Gloss in Sixties Fan.  This looks really dark but has a nice, deep wine color to it.  Perfect for fall.

DERMAdoctor KP Duty Moisturizing Cream.  I hate to admit it because it’s kind of gross, but I get little white keratosis pilaris bumps on the back of my upper arms.  (Keratosis pilaris is a common skin condition in which a protein in the skin called keratin forms hard plugs in the hair follicles.)  It’s not all that bad, but it’s bad enough to make me try to squeeze them out when I get bored.  (Sorry, I know that’s gross…)  I’ve been applying this to the back of my arms this past month and the bumps are definitely getting smaller and look like they are going away.  Hurray!

NARS Lipstick in Funny Face.  I wore this for my wedding!  I love a bold lip, and this was definitely bold but not over the top.  It’s a beautiful bright pink that is sure to make you feel beautiful and a little bit sassy ­čÖé

Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy.  My lips seem to be chapped all the time now that it’s getting colder outside.  I didn’t want rough lips for the wedding, so I started using this lip serum before the wedding and it helped heal them.

Clinique Chubby Stick in Grandest Grape.  I love lip color that has some moisture to it.  This stuff is nice and creamy and feels like lipgloss, but adds lots of pigmented color.

What beauty products did you buy this past month?

    I've been wanting to try the Fresh brand for a while. Have you tried any of their other items?

    I love fresh's sugar products, especially the tinted lip balms. I've never seen this serum before but now I really want to give it a try. Winters in St. Paul are brutal (and definitely make me miss living in SC) and it would be nice not to have chapped lips all winter! How dark does the NARS gloss look on?

    I get KPs sometimes too LoL!! I love how you shared that! All of your lippy colors are beautiful! I have a fat pencil lipstick from another brand that I am loving right now too!

    Hi Leslie! Yep I've had 2 of their lip balms (one tinted and one just clear) and really loved them. They are very moisturizing and perfect to always keep handy in your purse.

    Hey Natalie! Yes I love their tinted lip balms too! The serum is nice and seems like it'll be good to help keep my lips less chapped in the winter. I can only imagine how cold it gets in St. Paul! The NARS gloss doesn't go on too dark. I keep trying to buy the "Damned" lip pencil because it even darker, but it seems to be sold out everywhere! I'll tag you in a pic on instagram next time I wear the gloss so you can see how it looks.

    Yes aren't KPs annoying? I love love pencils so much too! I'm such a sucker for a pretty lip color! What kind do you have right now?
