Fall Shadow Edit – Shop My Stash

Fall Shadow Edit

Hello, hello!

I was digging through my eyeshadow stash looking for a green shadow the other day, when the inspiration struck me to set aside a few for fall. With the temperatures (very slowly) starting to cool off, I’m more inclined to go for richer, deeper, smokier shades.

Here are a few of my picks:

Fall Shadow Edit

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette – I’m still in love with this palette, I use it year round, but seem to go for the darker shades in the fall / winter. Original review and swatches are here.

Fall Shadow Edit

Urban Decay single shadows in Mildew, Cobra, and Loaded. I’ve had these for a long time but you can still buy Mildew and Loaded. Sadly Cobra seems to have been discontinued.

Nyx Prismatic Shadow in Jaded. I got this in an Ipsy GlamBag and it has been lost in my eyeshadow stash for ages, and I forgot that I had it!

What are your shadow picks for fall?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Disclosure: I won the palette in a giveaway in 2016, and the rest were purchased by me.

Faves for Fall 2017

Hello, hello!

Today I’d like to share some of my current favourites for the fall season. Since I’ve already shared my lipstick picks last week, I won’t be including any in today’s faves post.

Faves Fall 2017

Let’s take a closer look – skin / body care:

Faves Fall 2017

As I’ve said before I am a lip balm addict and the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask is a must have for year round use, but especially during the colder months! I use this every night before going to bed. The original review is here. (Cruelty free)

The Neal’s Yard Remedies Bee Lovely All Over Balm* is a new favourite. It just smells so amazing! I tend to use this wherever my body needs the most hydration. This will be well used as the weather gets increasingly colder. The review is here. (PR sample, cruelty free)

The Natura Siberica Saaremaa Moisturizing Hand Cream was given to me from A’s family when we were visiting Estonia in August. As you can see, it is already well used. I’m hoping that it lasts throughout the winter because it is not greasy, super moisturizing and mildly scented. The review is here. (Cruelty free)

Faves Fall 2017

Can you believe that I have not one, but two non-waterproof mascaras in my faves? This has never happened before! Both the Volume Stylist 18H and The False Lashes Mascaras from Essence are able to withstand my watering eyes without running or smudging. And they give my lashes volume and can hold a curl in my long, stick-straight lashes! Reviews are here and here. (Cruelty free)

The Hey Honey Active Propolis Cream Concealer was a surprise for me. It came in my last Ipsy GlamBag. When I first swatched it on my arm, I figured that I would hate it. It works well to conceal dark circles and hydrate the under eye without creasing on me! I’ve been using this interchangeably with my usual Becca Brightening Under Eye Corrector. And I have just recently tried the two together with good results so far! Review is here. (Cruelty free)

These earrings are a replacement for a similar, well loved, pair that I’d recently lost. I had worn the original pair almost daily for several years (8 to 10 years) and was heartbroken at their loss. I found these silver wire earrings from Splurge on etsy, and I could not be happier. I love their simplicity. I also love that they were hand crafted in Canada!

What are your favourites for fall? (Or spring if you are on the other side of the world)

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
