My Beauty Favorites — Week of October 12-18, 2015

It’s still a little warm in Kansas City, but it’s starting to feel like Fall is here!  I took my kids to the Renaissance Festival today and it was crazy!  So many interesting people in elaborate costumes.  It was so nice being outside, too!

I have an eclectic mix of favorites this week. From hydrating lip glosses with light-up lids, to a makeup bag that is perfect for travel to shampoo and body lotion that work well for sensitive skin.
