Fall Beauty Buys- Review

So I recently decided to get a few key items for this Fall since I'm excited to try some new looks. I have been using these products for a week and am now reviewing them for you in case your interested in purchasing any of these brands or any of the items I just purchased.

I'm a big fan of NARS and their lipstick as well as their famous blush called "Orgasm." I had read recently that rose colored cheeks is going to be one of the popular colors this Fall so I went into Sephora to check out what NARS had to offer. I ended up buying "Outlaw" which is one of their newest blushes for the Fall.  This is a rose tone blush with some golden shimmer and it's gorgeous on.

I was nervous when I tried it out at first because I didn't know if it would be too bright on the cheeks but a little bit goes a long way for a subtle rosy cheeked face. I love how sheer it looks on but how gorgeous the color looks on my skin. It makes me look like I just got a great workout. This blush costs $26.00.

The next product I bought by NARS was Marie-Gante eyeshadow duo. Blues and purples look great on people with brown eyes so I thought these would be great fall colors. What sold me on them is I played around with the tester in the store and these colors are pretty sheer and iridescent but deliver this pretty shimmer that you can put over any eyeshadow or just use as a sheer look on your lid. I also liked that you can build these up on your lids to be darker looking or leave them as a light shimmer. This duo cost me $34.00.

Sticking with my theme of BLUE for some reason this nail polish caught my eye and I had to get it. I was watching TV recently and saw this woman wearing a similar color on her longer nails and just loved how it looked. Not to mention this is my high school's color, royal blue! This is called "Baker Street-Cobalt Blue" by Nails Inc. This nail polish cost $9.50 and is the exact color on your nails as it is in the bottle.

Once I hit the checkout at Sephora I was eligible for a free large sample and decided to get the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser.  This cleanser is awesome. It's a gel consistency that warms on contact with your face and while it's a little stranger to use a black looking cleanser it has really cleared up my skin and I've only used it 3 times. What else I like is it doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or stinky.

Check out the description Sephora has for this product.

What it is formulated to do:
This black cleanser heats up on contact with skin to effectively open and de-clog pores. Its gel texture transforms into a gentle and effective lather to dissolve oil and makeup, rinsing away pore-clogging surface debris, impurities, and excess oil. It refines skin texture, brightens skin clarity, and minimizes the look of pores over time.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

This is a great cleanser as you can see and costs $28.00 for 5 ounces.
