Happy Thursday peeps!!

A few days ago, something exciting happened in the makeup world. The stunning and ever so fabulous Gigi Hadid released a collaboration with Maybelline and let me tell you, it gives me all the feels. I have been a huge fan of both Gigi and Maybelline alike, so when I found out on their collaboration I was so pumped. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this collection to be honest, and I was pretty bummed. So I decided to give it a try for myself! The complete collection comes with so many items, but since ya girl is one broke blonde, I only got the Jetsetter Palette and the Tinted Primer!

The Jetsetter Palette is complete with two concealers, two mini brushes, four eyeshadows, a mascara, bronzer, blush, two lip balms, and a highlighter! Literally everything you could ever need minus foundation. It’s perfect.

So, honest review. This palette is awesome and beautiful, butttt not the highest ofΒ  quality. The eyeshadows aren’t super creamy and pigmented as I would have hoped, and the bronzer is a little bit chalky. Other than those minor factors the palette is perfect! The shades that Gigi chose to be a part of the palette are essential for a natural, yet glam look! The Tinted Primer is super hydrating, and gives my skin a really healthy glow which I am all for. I think that this palette is a necessity if you’re a traveller, and even if you’re not tbh. The packaging is so chic and screams my aesthetic. I’m actually obsessed. Now I’m no makeup artist (that’s my sis you should check her out), but I am really pleased with the look I created from this palette! I think it’s perfect for girls who want a natural glow! I recommend this palette for sure! You won’t be disappointed πŸ™‚

I hope you guys enjoyed this review!! If there are any other products you are wondering if it’s worth the hype then leave them in the comments and I’ll be happy to give them a go!! This palette is affordable, and worth the money for sure!! (And I’m not just saying that because I love Gigi) πŸ™‚ Give it a try and let me know what you think!!

Who else has been drinking pumpkin coffee way too often?πŸ™‹Β No? JustΒ me? I know a lot of folks aren’t keen on pumpkin flavored everything, but I for one am allll for it. That is just one of my many fall favorites you need to try if you haven’t yet! After this post you are going to be set for the perfect fall with all these fabulous products and goodies πŸ™‚ You can thank me later πŸ˜‰ (Also let’s count how many times I say fall in this post). There a little mix of everything in this list, but you have my 100% Dana Guarantee that they are all insanely amazing. I have been using these items non-stop since late August, early September and I’m pretty sure will be going strong clear through until winter and beyond. I’m gonna be honest, some of the products are a little pricer than I would normally spend, but they are SO worth it. Definitely worth the splurge.

Memebox I Dew Care Disco Kitten Face Mask

I can’t believe I haven’t talked about this mask on here before, because honestly it is THE GREATEST mask I have ever gotten. It is metallic, shiny, perfection in a bottle. It goes on your skin so smooth, and when you peel away the pearly mask it leaves your skin glowing like you wouldn’t believe. Imagine the most insane natural highlighter you’ve ever seen. I feel like the tin-man when I wear it and I love every second. The mask is made with pearl powder, diamond powder, rice bran extract, oat extract, and white flower complex giving your skin the most magical treatment ever.

It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream MoisturizerΒ 

I was honestly skeptical when I first purchased this moisturizer because of the price. I can’t go a day without moisturizing my face because my skin is so dry, so when I ran out of my previous moisturizer I figured I would give this one a shot. I am so glad I did because holy moly this stuff is life changing. I am on my third one now, and I will never try another moisturizer again. My skin has transformed SOO much since I started using this! It’s brighter, smoother, softer, and overall looks so healthy. My skin is absolutely loving it, and it’s a MUST for the upcoming chilly weather.

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Skincare is something I recently became more obsessed with now that I’m almost 25πŸ™…. I used to be a bad girl and would forget to take my makeup off before bed, or I would just use makeup wipes and call it a day. The Clinique Cleansing Balm makes removing makeup and taking care of your skin so easy for lazy gals like me. It’s literally so simple, and makes my skin so happy. It removes all my makeup gently but effectively so there’s nothing left on my skin! Seriously a holy grail product.

Winky Lux Kitten PaletteΒ 

If you saw my last post you would already know all about this cute-as-a-button palette. The colors are creamy, long-lasting, and amazing autumnal shades. If you wanna learn more about it check out my post here!

Clinique Even Better Makeup

Fresh, dewy skin is my go-to look no matter what the season. My skin has never looked more healthy and bright until I started using this foundation. I have received so many compliments on my skin since I’ve been using it, and I am loving my results. It gives the perfect amount of coverage, and gives my skin a natural, dewy finish. I am sooo in love with this stuff, I highly recommend it!!

Lancome CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base

Personally, I HATE wearing false lashes. I can’t get used to them and I constantly worry if they’re moving out of place or look fake. I do love the look of long, voluminous lashes though (but who doesn’t?), and I found a product that has changed my life and will change yours as well. This Lancome Super-Enhancing Mascara Base is the greatest thing I have ever tried. It gives my lashes the extra boost they need to look longer, fuller, and natural. Seriously, go buy this right now.

Oversized Sweaters

Do I really need to say anything else? Oversized, chunky sweaters have been a staple in my fall/winter wardrobe for years now. But this year, I’ve gone a little extra oversized in my sweaters and it’s the coziest thing. My regular sweater size if I wanted a normal fit would be a small. I step it up to a large or xl when buying certain sweaters though so they are extra roomy, cozy, and I personally think cuter πŸ™‚ I love the look of an oversized sweater with the sleeves rolled up a bit, have the front of the sweater tucked into jeans, and some booties. I don’t know about you, but that screams adorable to me.

Everything Red

When I think of red I automatically think of Taylor Swift. (It’s my all time fave album of hers). But then the next thing that comes to mind is this time of the year. I don’t know why red isn’t the color of the season every year, because it really should be. Red is literally everywhere this year, and I’m actually diggin it. I usually steer away from bold colors, but I am loving brightening my wardrobe with pops of red! It’s so fun to add simple red pieces to outfits as well like a red shoe, skirt, purse, or lip πŸ˜‰

Furry Loafer Slides

I have been living in my furry loafers since I got them in early September. They are so freaking comfortable, and equally as adorable. Not to mention, they look identical to the Gucci furry loafers only $900 cheaper πŸ˜‰ Whenever I wear these, people constantly ask if they’re Gucci! I think it’s a pretty great dupe πŸ™‚ Unfortunately the pair I have is sold out, but the ones I linked above are really similar and just as badass.

Candles

Surprisingly, I only recently found my obsession for candles. They are absolutely a fall/winter essential because they make your room a million times more cozy! My favorite scents from Bath & Body Works are Flannel and Marshmallow Fireside. They smell soooo good. I’m totally into sweet smelling candles. Vanilla is my ultimate favorite candle scent, so anything with vanilla I’m all for it πŸ™‚ Bath & Body Works always have amazing sales, so make sure you keep up with them!

Reading

I’ve always loved delving into a captivating novel, but recently I’ve been on of a book kick πŸ™‚ Reading is so enjoyable all the time, but especially on cozy days snuggled under a blanket with some coffee and candles lit. Right now I’m reading Wonder, and holy moly is it good. It’s a super easy read since it’s aimed for young adults, but it is honestly such a heart-warming story and I’m so excited to see if the movie is as good!

There ya have it babes!! All my favorite things about fall, to do in fall, and to have in fall. I hope this post inspired you to think of your fave things, and maybe gave you some ideas as well!! If you haven’t tried out some of the things I mentioned, please do and DM me on Instagram letting me know how it worked for you!! I love to hear your feedback πŸ™‚

I only said fall seven times, impressive πŸ˜‰

Happy October 3rd (iconic Mean Girls Day lol). I cannot believe that it is finally October!! October is one of my favorite months because the fall vibes are in full swing, the weather starts to get a little chilly, and HALLOWEEN. Overall I’m so pumped for this fall season because I’m going to be rocking Winky Lux‘s brand spanking new Kitten Palette!! πŸ˜» This gorgeous palette launches today and features 9 stunning, creamy, pigmented shades! I’ve been using it nonstop since I received it and I’ve gotten so many compliments! It’s purrfect for fall because the shades are deep, warm, and colorful. My favorite shadows are Cateye and Strut πŸ™‚ I think the color combo is SO AUTUMNAL it makes me so happy. I love small compact palettes like this because they’re so easy to throw in your bag and take with you to show all your friends πŸ˜‰ Also can we just talk about the packaging for a second?? How stinking cute! Winky Lux always has the most adorable product packaging. Ugh I just love them.

How cute is my kitty model, Olive??

I borrowed my kitten niece for these pics and she was less than happy to be a part of it lol

I also recently discovered that Winky Lux has a sister company Laqa & Co. They have insanely creamy lip colors, and recently released their Cloud Lip collection which is everything you think it sounds like and more. The colors go on my lips so smooth, and last for hours thanks to the avocado oil they’re made with! When I say it’s like they somehow managed to put a cloud in tube I’m not exaggerating. I’ve tried sooo many lip products that claim to go on smooth, but this is a whole new level. They also make my lips look nice and plump which is always a nice touch πŸ™‚ Winky Lux and Laqa & Co products are all cruelty free as well which is something I can totally get behind.

Sup babes! In the sticky summer months frizzy hair is Β inevitable, so haircare is extra important. I love the look of healthy, glowing hair, and with these products I can achieve that! The best part about these products is that they are all under $20!! If you haven’t tried these out yet I highly recommend you do!

Β My hair is like my child. I take pride in how it looks and taking care of it is something extremely important to me, especially in the summer. I recently discovered this amazing brand, Eva NYC. I can’t believe my hair has managed to survive without it tbh. Not only do their products make your hair feel and look magical, but they are a company based on women empowerment and the duality of real women. And their products smell freakin’ INSANE. Like if I could bottle the scent and make it into a perfume I would in a heartbeat. And guess what, Eva NYC is more accessible than ever because their products are now sold at Ulta!! Make sure you head to your nearest store to pick up these goodies πŸ™‚ Here are some of my favorite products from Eva NYC!!

Therapy Session Hair Mask $14.99:Β When I say to you that this stuff is like a creamy, magical experience I’m not exaggerating in the least bit. I got this product only a few weeks ago and I’m already halfway through it! You can use it as a daily conditioner (which is what I do because I love the way it smells and how soft my hair is afterwards), or you can use it as a hair mask a few times a week and leave it in your hair while you do your shower routine. Either way this product is fantastic and I want a lifetime supply.

Mane Magic 10-In-1 Primer $11.99:Β Since I started using this people haven’t stopped complimenting how amazing my hair smells and how shiny and soft it looks! This super lightweight primer does 10 amazing things at one time. It detangles, nourishes, strengthens, cuts drying time, adds shine, reduces frizz and protects against uv rays. Literally, what more could you ask for??

Freshen Up Dry Shampoo $11.99:Β Generally dry shampoo isn’t my favorite haircare product. For some reason I feel like since my hair is so fine, it never really gives me the volume I’m looking for. This dry shampoo is hands-down the best I’ve ever tried. It makes my un-washed hair look refreshed, clean, and voluminous. Some dry shampoos leave a white residue which is not cute in the least bit, but Freshen Up Dry Shampoo leaves not a trace behind! Another reason I love it so much is the ingredients. Lately I’ve been more cautious about what I put in and on my body, and I’m happy to know that this dry shampoo has natural rice starch instead of talc or aluminum like other dry shampoos. It also has Vitamin C which enhances shine, moisturizes, and strengthens my hair all in one spray!!

Surfs Up! Texture Spray $11.99:Β I try to go heatless on my hair in the summer months as much as possible, that’s why a texture spray is my bff for creating effortless waves! This surf spray is packed with vitamins to make your hair shiny, give it lasting volume, and repair any damage.

Purse Perfect Hair Towelettes $14.99:Β I’m gonna be honest, I haven’t tried this out yet, but it looks like the coolest thing ever and I definitely need to get my hands on it ASAP. It’s the most brilliant thing I’ve ever heard of and I’m surprised more brands don’t make these! When you’re out and about and you feel like your hair is going cray just whip out your Purse Perfect Hair Towelettes and smooth down any frizz or flyaways with the serum-infused wipes! Absolutely a summer essential if you ask me πŸ˜‰

I hope this post has inspired you to give your hair some lovin’ with Eva NYC!! Make sure you head to your nearest Ulta to see all the goodies Eva NYC has to offer πŸ™‚ Leave a comment below telling me your favorite haircare brand! Talk to you sooooon.

Thank you Eva NYC for sending me the Freshen Up Dry Shampoo!! All other products were purchased with my own money and of course all opinions are my own and genuine πŸ™‚

It has been far too long since I last posted πŸ™ A lot has happened in the last week, and I haven’t had the chance to sit down and put out content that I’m proud of. But I’m back from my hiatus with a very exciting post and a lot more to come! Today I’m talking about one of my favorite brands, Winky Lux! If you haven’t seen my other post on Winky Lux check it out! πŸ™‚ Essentially, it is a super adorable beauty brand with very affordable prices and amazing products! They recently launched their Double Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick Collection which is to die for.

Watch out Kylie, Winky Lux is killing it with the liquid lipsticks. The Double Matte formula is made with real vanilla and avocado oil so it doesn’t dry your lips out at all. I’ve worn these lipsticks for an entire day and honestly, they are so hard to get off…which in my opinion is amazing. They are kiss-proof, water-proof, and smudge-proof giving you a gorgeous lip that lasts through whatever your day entails. I was so impressed by how soft they felt on my lips and how well they lasted through eating, drinking, and smooching my man πŸ˜‰ I absolutely hate the feeling of dry lipstick, which is why I’m not a huge fan of the Kylie Liquid Lipsticks. I personally feel like they dry my lips out so much and I end up looking flaky and gross. The Double Matte Liquid Lipsticks don’t make my lips feel like that at all! The avocado oil makes them so soft, smooth and comfortable! There are five stunning shades to pick from ranging from neutral to daring. My favorite are Lolli and Shortcake πŸ™‚ All the colors are amazing, but Whoopie Pie is a littleee too intense for me 😜 If you can pull off a super dark lip though, then you go girl.

I also need to talk about THE coolest lip balm. Ever. IT HAS A FREAKING FLOWER IN IT ARE YOU KIDDING HOW CUTE. When I first saw this product I literally just stared at it in awe. It is so cute and unique and the very best part is that it’s sooo hydrating. It also has a really cool technology where it can reacts to your skin’s pH levels giving you the perfect shade of pink. If that isn’t the coolest thing ever I don’t know what is. Winky Lux just released a new purple Flower Balm! There are five different flower colors to pick from! All of them do the same thing, it’s just your preference on color πŸ™‚

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!! Major shoutout to Winky Lux for kicking butt in the makeup world and creating awesome products that are so easy to rave about!! I genuinely recommend you try Winky Lux if you haven’t yet! They are awesome and you won’t be disappointed πŸ™‚ Stay tuned for more exciting posts by subscribing!
