067. | My Favorite Cold Weather Moisturizers

Happy November! This is one of my favorite months of the year because it's finally cold enough to break out the cozy sweaters, heeled boots, and deep red lipsticks. With the change in weather also comes a change in skin composition. My skin is combination-oily when it is warm and humid outside, but becomes much dryer as the seasons change. When this happens, I always return to my two favorite moisturizers, the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer for day and the Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream for night.

066. | Current Beauty Obsessions, Vol. 5

Over the past two months, I unfortunately haven't had the best luck discovering new products. I've been generally under excited about the newer releases. The one bright side to not experimenting with new products is that I've rediscovered some old favorites. Keep reading to see what beauty products I've been obsessing over recently!

065. | Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Mad Max Brown

I'm excited to share a (relatively) new makeup product that I've been loving recently. The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is a cult favorite in the beauty community, and the brand has recently come out with a new shade, Mad Max Brown. After discovering the original Tattoo Liner in Trooper, a black shade, I got rid of all of my other liquid liners and exclusively used that. So, when I saw a new shade was released, I just had to buy it. Keep reading for photos and swatches!

064. | Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara

I picked up the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara months ago during the Nordstrom Mascara Sale (buy two, get one free). This is the first product I've owned from Armani, and although I was turned off by the high price tag, I figured the sale justified my purchase. I was half-hoping that I didn't like the Eyes to Kill Mascara, only because I cringe at the thought of repurchasing a mascara this expensive. But both fortunately and unfortunately, I absolutely love this product and it is by far the best mascara I've ever used. Keep reading for photos and details!

063. | Lorac Unzipped Gold Eyeshadow Palette

A few weeks ago, I posted a review of the Lorac Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette. In that post, I explained I picked up two shadow palettes during a sale, and here is the second. The Lorac Unzipped Gold Eyeshadow Palette is a follow up to the original Unzipped Palette. The shadow quality and palette design are identical in both, but the original Unzipped Palette contains neutral mauve and bronze toned shadows, while the Unzipped Gold has gold and peach toned shades. Keep reading for photos and swatches of the Unzipped Gold Palette! (Click here for photos and swatches of the original Unzipped Palette.)
