October Beauty Review

sacha buttercup powder becca opal milani eyeshine nyx matte liner la girl pro concealer

It's time for my October Beauty Review. Last month I tried a ton of new products- I must admit that I went a little crazy makeup shopping although I promised myself that I'd go on a no-buy until Black Friday. I do feel a little better about that since most of the products I have purchased are ones that I like so at least my money was well spent.

Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder: This is a "Youtube made me buy it" purchase. I've seen so many girls on YT use it to set their undereye concealer and for baking. I have used translucent powder in the past but I feel like it gives me a white cast. This buttercup powder does the opposite- its yellow color helps brighten my undereyes slightly. I use it to bake my undereyes and I love how it sets my undereyes. This powder gives a lovely smooth finish to the skin. This powder is ideal for medium to dark skin tones. 

Becca Shimmering Skin Porefector "Opal": This is a gift from my best frand in the entire world, Marcel. I was so stoked when I saw this because I've wanted this forever. It is a beautiful highlight which is surprising considering how light it looks in the pan but once you put it on your face... THE GAME IS CHANGED! It is so pigmented so you only need a little bit and you get highlight for days. 

L.A Girl Matte Flat Finish Gloss: Finally, I've found an awesome liquid lipstick that isn't drying. Ignore the name- its not a gloss. This is my favorite liquid lippie at the moment; it's matte but not drying. It doesn't feel uncomfortable on my lips and I wish they had a larger shade selection for this range. Definitely a must try- stay tuned for an in-depth review soon. 

NYX Matte Liquid Liner: I ran out of my favorite liquid liner, Wet n Wild Megaliner Liquid Eyeliner, and I wanted to see if there was a better drugstore liner out there. I am very impressed with this liner; its black, matte and waterproof. Random, but I also like the handle because for some reason it makes it easier to hold the brush and my liner looks a lot better.

L.A Girl Pro Concealer: A cult favorite- I have been using this concealer for a few years. It covers my undereye circles very well, doesn't crease, and is longwearing. I can't believe it's only $3 and its so much better than most drugstore and some highend concealers. A major plus is that there's a large shade range so you can find your perfect concealer.

Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshine in "Florence": I LOVE THIS PALETTE. I have been getting so much use out of this palette this month- the colors are so beautiful and instantly add a chic vibe to any look. A total must have.
