BEAUTY CRUSHES:

1. SHANY PALETTE ($17.95)

My amazing boyfriend bought my this eyeshadow palette (a man who buys you makeup=keeper). I love it and was surprised at how decently pigmented they are. I can do a full review of this palette if you would like (let me know in the comments). I have used this palette to create so many looks. The shadows blend easily and there are just so many colors to chose from. I think every makeup lover should have one type of these eyeshadow palettes in their collection. I highly recommend this palette and I can’t wait to use it more.

2.VASANTI PROFESSIONAL FOUNDATION BRUSH ($32)

I never use these types of brushes to apply foundation. I received it in my September 2015 Boxycharm box. I thought why not try it and I am so glad I did. This brush is so well made and makes applying foundation so easy. I love how airbrushed my skin looks when using this brush. This brush is also fun to use. I will continue to use this brush for applying foundation and I highly recommend trying this brush.

3.KARDASHIAN BEAUTY BLACK SEED DRY OIL ($16.49) 

I received this sample in my September 2015 Boxycharm box. I thought it would be gimmicky because it is endorsed by a celebrity (I am not the biggest Kardashian  fan). However, I was so surprised. I love this dry oil and will most likely purchase the FULL SIZE when I run out. You only need to use a little bit and it makes my hair so soft. I love how healthy and shiny my hair looks when using this oil. It doesn’t leave my hair feeling greasy either. The smell is amazing (it has a sexy musk fragrance). I guess I will have to try more of the Kardashian line now. I highly recommend this dry oil.

4. SHIMMER STRIPS ALL-IN-ONE CUSTOM NUDE PALETTE FOR FACE AND EYES ($13.99)

I love this product so much. I have been using it just about everyday this month. You can use the shades individually as eyeshadows or blend together for an all over glow. I personally use them as a highlighter on the top of my cheekbones. I blend the first two rows together and apply with a fan brush. The highlighter blends beautifully into the skin and gives me a beautiful glow. I just can’t get enough of it. I like it better then a lot of my high end highlighters. I highly recommend trying this product if you want a gorgeous highlight.

5. Body merry STRETCH MARKS & SCARS DEFENSE CREAM ($17.99)

I really enjoyed trying this scar cream. I have a whole post on it here! I really have noticed my scars fading and I love the smell of the cream so much. It smells just like chocolate. I love how thick the cream is, yet it sinks into the skin so quickly. I highly recommend trying this product.

6. NIVEA IN-SHOWER BODY LOTION SMOOTHING DRY SKIN ($5.69)

I love this product so much. It cuts my getting ready time in half. I love that I can moisturize (lotion) my skin while I am in the shower. This stuff really does work like a lotion. My skin feels so smooth and hydrated. I don’t need to lotion up after using this product. I actually like it better than a lot of my lotions. It sinks into the skin instantly. You just apply all over the body and then wash off. It is so fun and crazy how well it works. I highly recommend trying this in-shower lotion.

LIFESTYLE CRUSHES:

1. chobani yogurt flips in key lime pie

These are so amazing and can be found in your local grocery store. Whenever I get them, I just have to eat them right away. I can’t resist. The key lime pie flavor is my absolute favorite. It seriously tastes just like a key lime pie and is so much healthier. If you love key lime pie, I highly recommend trying this. If you love these, let me know in the comments below.

2. from prada to nada

I have watch this movie a few times now on Netflix. I love this movie so much and it is such an easy watch. I love the story line and I really get into this movie. If you love chick flicks, then you will love this movie. I highly recommend watching this movie on Netflix if you are looking for a new movie to watch.

3. Periscope

I have really been enjoying Periscope this month. I love watching scopes as well as creating my own. I hope to work on improving my scopes soon. I have learned so many awesome things about makeup and fashion from watching Periscope. I also love that it is live streaming and you can interact with people real time.

4. cat sunglasses
