It’s October!

My favorite time of year is now in full swing, so I thought it would be a great time to share some of the things I have been loving lately. There is so much Id love about Autumn, the crisp cool air, the clear golden sunshine, and of course pumpkins.

DWHome Candles White Pumpkin & Caramel Pumpkin

DW’s candle are my favorites! I always find them in TJ Maxx in all shapes, sizes, and scents. This time of year they have all the autumnal scents you could possibly wish for.

L’OREAL Infallible 24 Hr Eyeshadows 

Time to break out the copper and gold shimmer shadows!

I don’t know why exactly but gold and bronze shimmers are strictly a cold weather thing, so as soon as the leaves start turning I start wearing them.

These Infallible shadows are some of the most gorgeous I have used, the apply beautifully and although I haven’t worn them for twenty for hours they do last for a normal days wear very well.

Amber Rush 

In the container, it looks like a rusty copper shimmer, but when applied it is a beautiful bronze color that has slight pink undertones.

Eternal Sunshine

A lovely yellow gold.

Iced Latte 

A stunning pearly champagne shimmer.

These three lipsticks are pretty much the only ones I have been wearing lately

KAT VON D Studded Kiss Creme Matte Lipstick 

It wouldn’t be a true autumn themed favorites post without some dark berry colored lipsticks.

Lolita: 

This is a warm dark rosy shade.

Cathedral:

This one is a cool-toned dark rosy brown shade.

Both of these are gorgeous to wear are they smell like hot chocolate so that makes them even better for this time of year.

BAREMINERALS  Gen Nude liquid Lipstick

If you have been with A Sparkle Of Grace for awhile you probably know that I don’t like do liquid lipstick ( My Thoughts On Liquid Lipstick) but I really don’t think this can be called a liquid lipstick.

This has a soft matte look, but it has a very soft creamy feel, definitely a liquid lipstick I can happily wear.

ESSENCE How To Make Brows Wow.

I have been very loyal to my Milani Brow gel for ages, but I have been using this brow powder when I want a softer more natural looking brow.

This kit has three brow colors and one highlight color, I tend to use all three the darkest on the tail of my brow and blend into the lighter shades as I go along. When I’m just going for a quick natural look I just use the Love Blondes shade.

THE ORDINARY 100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil

I use this like serum, after toner but before moisturizer.  This formula contains 100% unrefined cold-pressed virgin African Marula oil that

I actually just ran out and need to order some more of this. I was a little worried that using an oil would make me breakout but actually, my skin has been doing really well. It’s been feeling well hydrated and soft.

ESFOLIO Aloe Jelly Pack 

This is a unique little moisture. It has the texture of jello it feels like a gel but when you apply it to the skin it melts to a water like feeling.

I tried to find a link to this somewhere, but I couldn’t find one. I found this at TJ Maxx.

PHILOSOPHY Lemon Custard Glazed Body Souffle 

I had to link to a Lemon Custard hand cream because I couldn’t find this online. I have this last year but left it at a rental house in Bar Harbor which was very sad.

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing this smells! I smell exactly like the lemon bars I used to make, sweet, lemony and completely delicious.

OPI Nail Lacquer in Chocolate Moose 

This color is so nice for autumn, it is a slightly red-toned chocolate brown.

 

There has been a lot of things I have been enjoying over the past couple of months but these are just the ones I have been using on a regular basis.
