Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polish in Inky Dinky: I am really liking this nail polish! “Inky Dinky” is a gorgeous fall color… a dark navy blue. It is a quick drying polish and applies smoothly. It did need two coats to be fully opaque. So far it has not been doing too bad of a job resisting chips. I have been only wearing it for a day and I don’t have any base or top coat on with it.
theBalm Meet Matte Hughes Lip Color, Committed: This is a very pretty, neutral, red, brown shade. When I swatched it, it took a lot of scrubbing to get the lipstick off of my hand! It smells very nice… like mint and vanilla! It took a long time for it to fully dry. When it was partly dry, it felt a little sticky, but it’s not overly uncomfortable.
Coastal Scents Xpress Line Cosmetic Pencil In Black: This pencil has great pigmentation, it doesn’t smudge much and sets quickly. Once it sets it is pretty difficult to remove. I had to rub a lot to get this swatch off.
Ayres Ipsy exclusive Pampas Sunrise Hand Cream: This is a great moisturizer. It is silky and gets the job done. I’m not in love with the scent but I can live with it. I did find that the scent has a pretty strong taste. I rubbed in the little dollop you see in the photo, a few hours later ate some grapes and could taste the lotion that transferred from my fingers to the grape more than I could taste the actual grape. Yuck!
Peter Lamas Naturals Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub: How appropriate is this scrub for this time of year?! It smells amazing… like pumpkin, cinnamon, and vanilla! It exfoliates really well without over drying or irritating my skin. So far I really like it!
I am really happy with this months bag! The stuff is great and the makeup bag is really cute. It is gold on one side and shiny black on the other. My favorite product in this month’s bag is the nail polish. What did you get this month? What was your favorite item? Please tell me in the comments!

Eyeshadow is a beautiful addition to any makeup look whether you go for neutral shades or bright colors. Or maybe you prefer cream shadows over powder. For many of us, no matter the amount of effort we put into blending our beautiful pigments, it always creases. Every time we close our eyes the is a nice thick band of clumpy eyeshadow in the crease of out eyelid. Yum. My current go-to product, to avoid that clumpy issue, is Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick…read more
Vapour Beauty makes beauty products from non-toxic, natural, organic and mineral ingredients. All of their products are a beautiful quality inside beautiful packaging. On their website, there is a list of dupes where you can find clean replacements for your favorite cult products. Their Lipstick, in the color Purr, is a dupe for Nars’ Lipstick in the color Sex Machine. I’ve had heart eyes for Nars’ Sex Machine for quite a while but did not want the less than desirable ingredients. I’m so glad I found Vapour’s Purr…read more
