October Favorites & Empties (2012)

I cannot believe it's already November. This year is going by so quickly and there's only a couple of weeks left before the fall semester is over! Crazy, crazy, crazy.

Here are some of my favorite products from October:
Lancome Color Design Palette - Taupe Crazy & Nars Foreplay Cheek Palette
I have a review coming up for these two products, so I won't say much. I've been enjoying them a lot!

Einstein Lip Therapy
With the cold weather, it's hard for me to use lip products without aggravating my lip eczema. This minty and refreshing lip balm does a great job at soothing it.

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus
This was a gift from the lovely Ms. Carol and it's one of my favorite mascaras! It's a great volumizing mascara that separates my lashes and is so friendly to my thin Asian lashes. Love!

Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner - Perversion
This was the one product I was surprised to find in my stash. I found this while I was in the process of clearing out some makeup. I was on a break with eyeliners due to me always ending up looking like a raccoon after a couple of hours, but this baby restored my faith. On me, this liner will stay put all day unless I rub my eye (a really bad habit I need to break) - which would get flakey. Anyway, I've been really pleased with this liquid liner.

Nature's Wick - Bonfire Nights
It's a bit pricey ($20), but the quality of these candles are far more superior than the Bath & Body Works candles. The Bonfire Nights scent is warm and homey - with a tiny touch of woodsy.

Here are the products I've finished/tossed out:
Sephora lip glosses
These lip glosses were beauty insider's birthday perks from a couple of years ago. I never opened them, but didn't want to give them away because they probably expired who knows how long ago.

Aquafina Lip Balm
It was smashed up and melted - I didn't want to bother.

Tend Skin
I'm on my 4th bottle now. This has saved me from a lot of ingrown hairs, so I can't imagine my life without it!

Thanks for stopping by!
