I remember hiding in the girls’ room with my friends, heating up the tips of our eyeliner pencils with a lighter for the smokiest eyes on the planet! With fall right around the corner, I decided to pull from my stash to create a fall inspired look that so happens to be from one of my favorite brands.

My Fall Picks…

Juvia’s Place Zulu Palette| Review + Swatches

Juvias Place Zulu Eyeshadow Palette

Juvia’s Place Cosmetics is having a serious moment right now!  If you haven’t heard of this black owned company, consider this your introduction!  I recently picked up the Juvia’s Place Zulu Palette during one of their sales. Juvia’s Place has turned the world of highly pigmented eye shadow palettes on its head!  Once you had to pay ridiculous amounts of money to even come close to decent eye shadow pigmentation.  And then you still had to prime your lids like crazy just to see some color payoff, especially if you are darker skinned. This palette changed all of that! The Afro-Centric packaging is some of the most stunning that I have ever seen in my entire life.  I’m not even exaggerating!  Keep reading to see for yourself!

The Beauty Tag

I love beauty tags!  I’ve never been tagged in one, so I’m just going to jump right into “The Beauty Tag” that I found from the Makeup Dreamer Blog by Amsa! I actually dream about makeup at night, so this tag is perfect!

August/September Empties

It takes me an embarrassingly long time to get through a product. My attention span is too short to NOT be seduced by new packaging and the latest and greatest the cosmetics industry has to offer. So when I actually make it to the bottom of any product, it’s kind of a big deal (for better or worse)!

Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream

This little BB cream has gotten me through the entire summer! It’s light weight with amazing coverage for a BB cream and makes my skin look amazing. I’m going to cut the tube in half to sqeueeze a little more life from this tube!

Will i repurchase this?

I already have! There is a brand new tube waiting for me on my makeup desk.

Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Tripple Action Toner

This bottle lasts ne a long time because I only havw to use it once a month. My period does a real number on my skin by pumping more oil than normal This exfoliates and keeps mt skin in balance.

Will I repurchase this?

When i find something that works, I never stray too far! This is on my shopping list for sure.

NYX Dewey Finish Setting Spray

elf Makeup Mist and Set

Wet n Wild Natural Finish Setring Spray

I’m starting to wonder if setting sprays are just a gimmick. These really do help with minimizing that overly powdery look. Well so does water and not using too much powder in the first place.

I haven’t noticed my makeup wearing any better with these.

Will I repurchase these?

I think I’ll pass on any of these and probably any other setting spray for a while.

Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser

I am a big fan of double cleansing! It has improved my anon so much. I didn’t want to spend crazy accounts of money for an oil cleanser. Pond’s Cold Cream has been around since forever for a reason. Nothing does a better job of dissolving makeup.

Will I repurchase this?

Already have!

Sometimes brand i or product loyalty can be a real money saver. When you know whatyou like it’s easier to NOT spend money on shotty new things.
