October Birchbox 2012!

I got my box about a week ago but I still wanted to write a post about it. I've been watching videos on YouTube and many were disappointed with this month's box. I'm actually really excited about it because I got something that I've been DYING to try!

I love this box! The first thing I noticed when I opened it was a Beauty Blender. Yes, a Beauty Blender! I was literally in shock when I saw this! I cannot wait to use it for my foundation! I also got a sample of theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer. I have the full size of it and it is the best highlighter ever! It gives such a pretty glow to your face without looking like an oilslick. Love! I also got a Luna Bar in Chocolate Raspberry, a sample of Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum and Lucy B Roll On perfumes. I love this month's box! Tell me below what you guys got! In the meantime, I'll see you later!

Monday Questionnaire: Oct. 22, 2012

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of blog posts. I've been dealing with some family issues that have been fortunately cleared up! For today's post, I've decided to do Amarixe's Monday Questionnaire. I love watching her videos on Youtube and it seems like a lot of fun to do. You're all welcome to copy and paste the questions yourselves! Here's the questions!

1) Mood: 
I'm feeling okay right now. Getting ready to pick up my little sister from school then headed over to my math class. Fun....

2) What was the best part of your weekend?
My family and I headed over to a pumpkin fair at our local mall! There were rides for kids, pumpkins everywhere and delicious food! I had to get a slice of pumpkin pie!

3) If you HAD to choose one: drastic hair color change, or drastic haircut?!
Definitely a drastic haircut. I hate the texture of my hair (super thick and wavy) and a haircut would really improve the condition of my hair.

4) Current nail polish:
L'Oreal The Perfect Trench. It's from their new limited edition Fall London line.

5) Do you carry a checkbook in your daily bag?
No, but I should!

6) Current outfit:
A cream 3/4 sleeved laced shirt with a pair of black khakis. I feel really laid-back at the moment.

7) Are there any TV shows you are really loving at the moment?
I love watching The Amazing Race, Castle and Elementary!

8) Do you change your makeup routine with the seasons?  How is it different for fall?
Kind of. My foundation is a bit thicker in the fall and I like to wear berry lip colors with a soft smokey eye.

9) Are you dressing up for Halloween this year?
I still have no idea. I'll probably just make up my own costume.

10) Weekly goals:
Study for upcoming midterms, find a costume and buy dark colored skinny jeans. All of mine are worned out.

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

September Favorites!

Hello everyone! A bit late but I'm here to show you my beauty favorites for this month! This month I rediscovered some favorite products of mine. Now onto the products!

My first favorite is the Ecotools Bronzer Brush. I actually use it for my liquid foundation. It blends my foundation really well and leaves my skin looking flawless. The bristles are very dense and super soft. I don't get why it's called a bronzer brush since it's too big to use. Nonetheless, it's a superb brush for foundation!

This a definite rediscovered love of mine. It's L'Oreal's Voluminous Full Definition mascara. I first started using it in February of last year and ever since then I've been loving it! It leaves my lashes very long and volumized, something not a lot of mascaras do these days. The formula is not too wet and not too dry, which works wonders for my puny little lashes. Even MakeupByTiffanyD on Youtube loves it! I definitely recommend this mascara!

I just recently got this nail polish but I already love it! It's JulieG713's new nail polish line, Julie, in the color Metallic Heels. This is honestly the best nail polish I have ever tried! The color is opaque in just one coat! Metallic Heels is a metallic gold color that is perfect to wear in the fall! I love the color range in her collection and I can't wait to try out more colors from her line!

Next, are the L'Oreal Colour Caresse lipsticks. I own two but my favorite is the one pictured above, Silky Java. I'm a sucker for rosy nude colors so I was immediately drawn towards this color. These remind me of the Revlon Lip Butters except these glide on smoothly. The darker colors are definitely more pigmented the lighter ones. They don't wear too long on me but I don't care because I love the color! It's a perfect fall shade too!

This product has been a total lifesaver for me recently! It's the Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray. I live in Southern California (specifically in Orange County) and the weather has been really hot! Where's the fall weather?! Anyway, this truly helps my foundation last a long time! I can't believe I haven't used this product until recently! It's a great product that anyone with oily skin has to try out! Highly recommend!

Last but not least, I have been loving the Black Amethyst scent from Bath and Body Works. I have the lotion and the spray. This scent came out last year and of course, Bath and Body Works just had to discontinue it. good thing I have back ups of both! This is scent that you either love it or hate it. It has a very strong floral scent that almost leans to the masculine side. When I layer them together, it smells like fall to me. It's probably my signature scent. Why did you have to discontinue it Bath and Body Works?!

Those were my favorites for the month of September! What were your favorites? Leave a comment down below and tell me! Hope you're all having a nice day!
