It’s almost Thanksgiving!  Can you believe it?  Are you looking forward to turkey day?  And more importantly, have you changed up your look for the fall/winter yet?

Burt’s Bees lip conditioners are available in a variety of other fun flavors. Spread on a little TLC with Burt’s Bees moisturizing lip balm.

Exfoliating crystals mingle with Pomegranate Oil, Cranberry Seed, and Shea Butter to gently polish and condition your skin. Leaving it feeling healthy, smooth and beautifully glowing. It’s the sweetest kind of clean!

What I think: Both of these smell amazing! The lip balm is very moisturizing and smells like pumpkin pie, yum!  And the scrub is very tangy-scented and is great for removing your dry fall/winter skin!

You can purchase both of these products at Target stores and http://www.target.com

Marula Pure Marula Facial Oil

Clinically proven to contain a great deal of antioxidants and omega acids, it can be used alone as a highly effective antiaging moisturizer, added to other facial products to boost their efficacy, soothe skin after facial treatments or sunburn, or used as a perfect makeup primer. The deliciously fresh scent that stems from a one percent essential oil blend and provides a total sensory experience upon application, then dissipates so it won’t fight your fragrance.

What I think: My skin has been a bit chapped lately.  This oil soothes chapped and red skin.  The scent is mild and warm, very nice.  I use it on my face, but it is also great for cuticles!

What I think:  I have been focusing on my skin lately.  The cold air makes it red and splotchy. This primer helps even my skin tone and the blush give a pretty flush after I apply foundation.  I love the lip crayon in Plum Freeze for a pretty pop of color.

Get Ready For Fall With Make Up by Laura Mercier, tarte, Pur Minerals, Laura Geller, and It Cosmetics

I have a BIG Fall makeup post today!  I have recently received some fab new fall makeup to try out.  I have made a list of my 10 fave items from 5 stellar brands: Laura Mercier, tarte, Pur Minerals, Laura Geller and It Cosmetics:

tarte Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation
tarte Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation

1. tarte Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation ($36 USD) — Introducing the latest addition to the Amazonian clay foundation line for total complexion perfection! Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation delivers flawless, natural-looking coverage that lasts, while the skintuitive™ formula invigorates skin tone and texture for a youthful complexion. Powered by Amazonian clay enriched with the Earth’s natural, light-reflecting gemstones, this moisture-rich powder buffs on smoothly for waterproof, 12-hour coverage that won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles. Available in 11 shades to perfectly compliment a wide range of skin tones and undertones, this innovative foundation also employs a custom mesh delivery system for a fool-proof, mess-free application every time.

What I think: If you are looking for a natural coverage foundation that is good for you, this is the perfect one! I buff it on with tarte’s Airbuki Foundation Brush.  It covers red spots and imperfections but really looks just like your own skin!  And it is so fast to apply!

Available at www.tartecosmetics.com and www.qvc.com

Laura Geller CC Cream Compact w/ SPF 25
Laura Geller CC Cream Compact w/ SPF 25

2. Laura Geller CC Cream Compact w/ SPF 25 ($35 USD) So many benefits–just one compact! This antiaging compact creme foundation helps even out your complexion with a color-correcting peach swirl–but it doesn’t stop there. Boasting conditioning ingredients, the weightless formula also helps to protect against sun damage and prevent the look of lines, wrinkles, and sun spots. From Laura Geller. More info:

  • 0.37-oz CC Creme Compact Color Correcting Swirl Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25
  • Sponge
  • Light: very fair or fair to light skin tones
  • Medium: light to medium skin tones
  • Tan: light olive skin to lightly tanned skin
  • Made in Italy/Korea

What I think:  I have lots of BB, CC and even a DD liquid foundation, but this is my first CC crème contact. I am testing this in light, and really enjoy it for a full coverage look. I apply this with my BeautyBlender and it goes on perfectly.  So smooth and pretty, it really evens out my skin tone.

Available at www.qvc.com.

Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Mystical
Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Mystical

3. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Mystical ($23 USD) — An innovative wet/dry Eye Colour formula featuring Baked technology in beautiful shades that last all day. Magical and Mystical are limited edition shades included in the new Dark Spell collection.

What I think: Black smoky eyes are hot again this fall.  This shadow has a little sparkle in it and is perfect for a night out.  Really great color payoff as well.

Available at www.lauramercier.com and fine department stores.

 

Laura Geller INKcredible Gel Eyeliner Pencil
Laura Geller INKcredible Gel Eyeliner Pencil

4. Laura Geller INKcredible Gel Eyeliner Pencil ($20 USD) — INKcredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil is waterproof glide-on color stays put from day to night, delivering powerful, vibrant, multi-dimensional color.

Benefits:

– Precision tip allows for even application.

– Highly pigmented formula stays vibrant all day.

– Super soft means no pulling or skipping during application.

4 colors: Purple Rain, Blue Jean Baby, Teal Waters and After Midnight.

What I think: I have always been a fan on Laura Geller’s pencil eyeliners. I have been using this in Purple Rain.  It is a gorgeous shimmering shade of purple.  This is a very soft pencil, so make sure that you don’t press too hard (like I did).  You could lose the point.  But, it does last all day and all shades are gorgeous for fall!

Available at www.laurageller.com

Pur Minerals Big Blink Mascara
Pur Minerals Big Blink Mascara

5. Purminerals Big Blink Mascara ($20 USD) Fake a full night’s sleep with Pür Minerals Big Blink Mascara. Fortified with Argan Oil, Big Blink nourishes lashes for stronger, fuller eyelashes that are less likely to break or fall out. The clump-resistant wand easily glides over the lashes for an even application and coats the hard-to-reach inner corners for a complete set of luscious lashes.

What I think:  This mascara gives great volume and keeps lashes healthy at the same time! The thing I love most about this mascara is that my lashes don’t get sticky and lumpy after I apply it.  It looks fresh all day.  This has a hard plastic brush which really separates the lashes.

Available at www.purminerals.com and Ulta stores.

tarte lights, camera, flashes™ statement mascara
tarte lights, camera, flashes™ statement mascara

6. tarte lights, camera, flashes™ statement mascara ($23 USD) — Take your lashes to the extreme with this ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly!

Take your sultry, flashy lashes to the extreme with this amped up, ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies lashes for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly! Powered by tarte’s proprietary triple black complex, this longwear, vitamin-infused formula emphasizes length and volume while conditioning lashes for a dramatic look that won’t dry out, flake or budge.
The custom-engineered, dual-molded brush boosts even the skinniest lashes for an exaggerated, voluminous look. First, the shorter, denser side of the brush delivers the optimal amount of mascara to volumize and coat each lash perfectly, then the longer, firmer side of the brush lengthens and separates for maximum volume without clumping.

What I think: This is currently my favorite mascara.  I use the longer side first so that when I apply it I won’t get lumpy lashes, then the short side for more volume, but you can play with it to see the perfect application for you.  And boy, the results!  My short, stubby lashes looks so long and lush!  Awesome!

Purchase at www.tartecosmetics.com and www.qvc.com

Pur Minerals Lip Gloss Stick
Pur Minerals Lip Gloss Stick

7. Pur Minerals Lip Gloss Stick ($15 USD) A bold lip makes a statement and pulls the look together quickly. Loaded with rich emollients and vitamin E, these buttery smooth sticks condition lips as they color for a smoother, softer pout with each application. Slick on the richly pigmented, bold color of a Pür Minerals Lip Gloss Stick available in fall’s hottest shades including: Coralline – a juicy coral, Game Day – our signature classic red, Daredevil – a punchy light red and Spiked Punch – sheer hot pink.

What I think: I have this in an older color called Honey Pie (above), which is a perfect neutral for fall. The stick itself is very moisturizing on the lips and leaves a soft, glossy finish.  Very nice!

Available at www.purminerals.com and Ulta stores.

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush™ Hydrating Gloss Stain
It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush™ Hydrating Gloss Stain

8. It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush™ Hydrating Gloss Stain ($24 USD) — Stay hydrated in the summer heat with the new IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain which is infused with nine butter and oils that will pamper your lips without that giving them that sticky feeling. This lightweight serum repairs and protect while offering a beautiful pigmented shine.  Available in four shades, Inspiring Red is the one shown.

What I think:  The mixture of a stain and a moisturizing gloss is genius — soft lips and color that lasts all day!  I always love It Cosmetics products because of the wonderful quality and skincare benefits.  Very luxe.

Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Charmed
Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Charmed

9. Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Charmed ($30 USD) — Lips look visibly fuller, healthier, sexier with a dose of colour and high-definition shine.

What I think:  I have a lot of Laura Mercier glosses, but this is the first lip plumper I have tried from the brand. It does not sting, but does plump well and is not sticky! I am testing a limited edition color called Charmed.  It is a light peach sheer color and is gorgeous, perfect with the hot black smoky eye!

Available at www.lauramercier.com and fine department stores.

It Cosmetics Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe™ Vanity Brush Set
