I was up and down the aisles quite bit last week, hunting for the new products you can't be without after Labor Day. The best part? None of these will break the bank!
Are you Insta-makeup challenged? While the heavy look isn't for me, the on-point eyeliner never hurts. If you can't freehand a perfect cat eye (or can't see perfectly without your glasses) try one of these Eye Candy Stencils that gives you a perfectly shaped liner in seconds. Beware, it's sticky, so remove a little of the tack with our fingers before applying it to your eyes. This is great to get that on-trend multi-colored liner look, but you'll have to cut that crease on your own. Check out my first attempt on Instagram. Beth Bender Beauty Eye Candy Gentle Adhesive Eyeliner Stencils, $9.99
Add moisture to your body and hair in the shower with ogx's take on a hot oil treatment from head to toe. Keep this in the shower and you'll always be silky smooth. Just be careful on that tub surface. OGX Hydrate + Repair Argan Oil of Morocco Miracle In Shower Oil, $8.99
Switch up your blush with this newly reformulated silky smooth duo from Salma Hayek's Nuance Beauty line. The Illuminating Blush and Bronzer Duo is the perfect flush for transitioning from summer to fall. The colors are illuminating, yet muted, making them rise from average to must-have status. Plus this shade is truly universal. Salma Hayek Illuminating Blush and Bronzer Duo in Coral Glow, $12.99
The intense purples of the summer made picking the perfect berry seem harder than it has to be. trèStiQue doubles down on the best berry for fall with their Matte Color and Shiny Balm Lip Crayon in Belize Bordeaux. One side gives up a delicious light purple that doesn't go too blue while the Shiny Balm side gives you a sheer pop of color you can't mess up. trèStiQue Matte Color and Shiny Balm Lip Crayon in Belize Bordeaux, $28.00
Max Factor is back and I haven't stopped searching stores for product since the news broke. My favorite so far? Hands down, it's the MasterpieceMax High Volume + Definition Mascara. The wand is slightly tilted, the bristles are tight and the wand is compact, which guarantees each little lash gets equal love. This is fantastic for short lashes, too. This mascara is not thick or meant to look spider-y or large. If you like feminine, long, defined lashes that can't be construed as clumpy, this is for you. If you can find it, grab one for now and one for later. Max Factor MasterpieceMax Mascara, $9.99
