My Fall Fragrance Additions ($25 or less!)

Fall Fragrances by Distillery General, Otremier and Elizabeth & James

Although I’ve been a fragrance fan for years, I only really wore them when I was going out for an event or a date, or maybe to church. But now, I’m a fan of a daily fragrance. The first two fragrances came from my new favorite store, Anthropologie!

Eau de Toilette Vanille (1.6 oz, $18) is a pure vanilla scent that I wear non-stop. It’s like warm vanilla on a Fall day. It’s not overwhelming or super sweet.

Distillery General Eau De Parfum in Strawberry Vine is to die for.
The second is called Strawberry Vine (1.7 oz, $25) , and it’s described as “a charming fusion of red fruits, nutty essences and soothing amber vanilla”. No wonder I liked it so much! Go Be Lovely Rollerball in Coconut Mango is my next bet!

The third is a rollerball from Elizabeth and James (.34 oz/ $22) . I love warm, spicy scents, so this one didn’t dissapoint! I’d been spying this one for a couple months, and I finally added it to my dream team. It’s described as “an addictive blend of alluring violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine”.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Best of Stila Cosmetics

Stila Cosmetics is a brand with several cult favorite products.  It’s a brand that I’ve been using off and on for years.  While digging in my makeup collection a few weeks ago, I realized just how many Stila products I owned, and how I’m never disappointed with them!

Eye Shadows ($20)-Silky smooth and rich in color. I’ve been wearing La Douche on my eyes for a week straight. Kitten is the perfect pearly highlight. Twig is a must have as well.  Sam Fine is a big fan!There is a massive amount of color packed into these shadows, so use a little at a time!

Lip Glaze ($22)- These pen-like glosses are yet another favorite of mine! My favorites include Guava, Praline, Apricot and the infamous Brown Sugar! If you hurry, you can purchase the mini gift set for $25 at Sephora!

Smudge Pots ($20)-I’ve actually never tried these, but I read about them all the time.  People have sworn by them on my Twitter feed, and my fellow beauty bloggers can’t get enough either.  Check out these reviews at This That Beauty and Musings of a Muse.

Convertible Color ($25)-Since I’m all about multi-purpose cream color, these are high on my list.  They aren’t too thick and over pigmented, but give you just enough of what you really need.

Long Wear Lip Color ($20)-I was sold the first time I tried it. Think of the most effortless looking lip imaginable.  There are almost comparable to lip crayons.  They stay on for hours and don’t dry your lips out!

The Nars FOTN

Tonight I did a Youtube video showcasing some of my favorite Nars products. Typically, I wouldn’t wear orange eyes with a berry lip color like this. But, for the sake of my girls, I threw it on just to show off the color.
Nars is a bit pricey, but the color payoff and quality is unlike any other!! I am absolutely addicted, and I had to share my love!

On the eyes, I have Mediteranee eye shadow duo on the inner lid. The orange is absolutely jam packed with shimmer. The other side of the shadow is a soft, lovely shimmery gold. On my outer lid, I’m wearing Galapagos, a dark brown full of gold sparkles. You’ll want it the second that you see it. It’s part of the Summer 2008 collection, so get it while you can! Oh, can’t forget my brow highlight, my favorite cream shadow ever, Pink Panther! It’s a soft golden pink, one of a kind!

Nars is known for their one of a kind blushes, hands down. On my cheeks have a matte, BRIGHT, intimidating orange called Exhibit A. I can’t lie, I was terrified when the artist tried to put it on me. But, the second I saw it on, it was in my pile of must haves! You only need the slightest touch of color to get the cheek looking hot! Lastly, on my lips, I’m wearing Boogie Nights lip gloss. It’s a berry color, and it is so perfect for these Summer days! Find Nars at Sephora, various department stores and!!!
