fall beauty products I'm loving!

I don’t know about you, but I feel like there’s nothing more exciting than finding new beauty gems at Sephora! You know what I mean. When you take the risk of buying a new product, come home, try it out…and fall SO in love with it that you instantly incorporate it into your everyday beauty / skincare routine! It’s the BEST feeling. I’ve found a few new gems recently that I’m SO excited to share with y’all today. And then I’ll also be sharing a few other products that are tried and true faves for me – even more so during the fall and winter!

1. Urban Decay lipstick in color 66

Any and everytime I am wearing this lipstick on IG stories, my DM’s EXPLODE with questions about what lip color I’m wearing! This is such a beautiful berry color for fall. It’s kind of a deep plum without being too dark and I love that it has more blue undertones (rather than orange). I love this lipstick because it has SO much pigment. You don’t have to keep applying it for it to show up. The color is rich and perfect with just one swipe. This lip color is a fall essential for sure.

2. Farmacy Honey Potion mask

I’ve been using this mask for a few months now, and I absolutely love it. I’m pretty picky when it comes to face masks because I feel like a lot of them are all talk and no acton. But this one is legit and I notice a visible difference in my skin every time I use it. It’s loaded up with antioxidants and hydrating ingredients that leave your skin feeling SO soft and looking extra ‘glowy’ (cause that’s totally a word haha). I love using this in the winter too because it helps combat dryness and dull skin tone. It also feels so good on your skin, cause you literally feel it warming up as you massage it into your face. Would also make a great stocking stuffer or Christmas gift for a girlfriend!

3. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

Okay before I even explain my obsession with this stuff, you should check out the reviews. Everyone loooves it and I am right there with them. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s so difficult to find a super hydrating moisturizer that isn’t heavy/goopy on my face. I love that this one is insanely hydrating, but also really light (no greasy feel AT ALL). This time of year my skin needs all the hydration it can get, too. This ultra repair cream is lightweight and leaves my skin feeling smooth and moisturized all day long (even in the crazy Colorado winter). It’s also a great price and lasts forever since you don’t need to use a ton of product.

4. St. Tropez Self Tan Express

I have tried every self-tanner under the sun (ha, no pun intended) and this one is my tried and true, go-to self-tanner. It’s the best! In the summer, we spend more time at the beach and out in the sun, so I don’t necessarily use it all that often. But now that fall is here, I use this about once a week. It is SO easy to apply (I recommend using the mitt!) and gives you the most natural glow. It never leaves your orange or streaky, and it doesn’t have that nasty smell a lot of self-tanners do. Honestly this is the only self-tanner I’ve found that truly looks good on everyone, no matter how fair skinned (or olive skinned like me) you are. I love the express version because it works quickly too, and you can modify how dark you go by how long you leave it on.

5. Drunk Elephant Bronzi

Of course a Drunk Elephant product had to make it in this post! Haha but seriously, I am obsessed with this stuff. So I love that not only does this serum do amazing things for your skin, but it also gives you the most beautiful glow! It’s perfect for when cooler temps have your skin looking and feeling a little more dull.  I usually mix a few drops in with my moisturizer in the mornings and it lasts all day. It’s loaded up with antioxidants that protect your skin from pollution and other stressors, plus it helps with uneven skintone. It looks so natural and a little goes a long way!

6. Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eyeshadow Palette

So I saved the best for last in this post. Jk – these are all amazing products, but this eyeshadow palette is definitely a new product I have been swooning over. If you follow me on IG stories you’re probably already aware because I’ve shown it several times on there. This is honestly one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes I’ve ever purchased. There are SO many different looks you can do with it! You can go really simple and subtle for a “Sunday morning church” makeup look. You can make it really holiday glam with lots of shimmer. You can go dramatic for a cocktail party. ALL of the colors in this palette are gorgeous! I hate when you buy an eyeshadow palette and use like 1/10th of the colors haha. I’ve only had this palette for a few weeks but I’ve already used every single color in the palette. They are STUNNING and I think especially flattering for brown eyes! (But, would definitely be beautiful on blue eyes as well).

I’ve been a Sephora Beauty Insider for about a year now and it’s honestly the best rewards program of any retailer I shop at! I’m now on the ‘Rouge’ level, but each level of Beauty Insider gets SO many perks, including discounts and promotions, free makeovers, and tons of other benefits! So if you haven’t signed up for that program yet, definitely do so ASAP so you can start earning points + get free stuff!

What fall beauty products are you guys loving right now? If you buy this eyeshadow palette and try it out, make sure to tag me in any IG stories so I can see! I am seriously obsessed!

Thanks for reading!
