2011 September/October Faves

Hi Bellas,

I haven't really had the time to make a favorites video.  But I did take note of some of the items i've been loving over the last few months.  I always like to share items that I find pass the test in case you guys have some shopping to do!

Tom's Shoes (Navy Bimini Stich-Out)
A few months ago I finally buckled down and got me a pair of Tom's shoes.  I had been debating for a while but it's for a great cause (each pair that is purchased, the company donates a pair of shoes to a child in need) and they're super comfy!  I love this style because it looks like a boat shoe!  I got mine from Journey's.
Shea Butter Cream
I've mentioned before that I have a skin condition on my neck...I think it may be eczema.  The only thing that works for me (tried expensive creams, prescription creams....) is this home made cream I've made using Pure Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and more.  I think i'll feature it in an upcoming video.
Glamcor Contour brush
This brush is absolutely amazing for applying cream contour color such as a darker foundation color or a cream bronzer.  I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner!  It's really top of line, the bristles are super dense and nicely cut.  
Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Creme Foundations 1/2 oz. Dish $14.99
I've used Graftobian HD Glamour Cream Foundies in my kit for the longest time...it was time for me to buckle down and get some for myself!  You can purchase them in 1/2 oz dishes and since these bad boys are super pigmented it will last you forever!  I got the shades desert sand, buttermilk, and golden sunset.  That prett much covers me from my palest to darkest.  I'll probably do a video on this soon.
OCC lip tar in strumpet or demure $13 from http://www.occmakeup.com/lips.html
It's time for fall and I'm breaking out the deeper lip shades.  These colors are amazing, super pigmented, and I always get compliments when wearing them.

Incoco nail stickers with Seche Vite top coat
These stickers give you the most professional looking nails and they last forever, especially when you pair them with a top coat!  They are a little more heavy duty than the Sally Hansen version too.  I'm loving the Seche Vite Top Coat because honestly it dries super duper quickly which is great if you're on the go!
Hope you guys enjoyed some of my favorites from the last two months.  If you have any of your own, please leave them in the comments below!

I swear coconut oil is the cure all for everything. Is the skin dryness right under your chin area. I had that as well. Drink Fish oils as well, and it will be gone. I highly rec Barleans, Mango Peach Fish oil. You will love it. Hugs,

That brush looks awesome! It's a shame it's $75, otherwise I'd buy it. Great faves!

The Sally Hansen nail strips didn't work for me, so thanks for sharing about these. I am interested in getting a pair of Toms, too.

I've seen and heard a lot of people rave about the lip tars, the colors are so pigmented!

I got some Toms last month (the regular ones). They're expensive $54 and I like the fact that they donate a pair to a child in need but the shoes are kinda cheap in quality. I try to only wear them once a week if that because I can see them wearing out quickly. Love those lip tars!

I love the Graftobian Hi Def Foundation. I bought the warm pallet for my kit per your suggestion. I just ordered an individual size for myself in Deep Xanthe and will purchase more shades soon. I love this foundation. I have oily skin and large pores. This stuff goes on and does not move. It does not transfer and covers like a dream. I'm still getting used to using it because I tend to scrape out too much but hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon.
