REVIEW: Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Set

Usually my favorite Fall things consist of pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters and wine colored lips. However, for this Fall I have completely fallen in love with Anastasia's Lavish Set. This $38 palette (a $212 value) has everything you possibly need to achieve the perfect eye for the Fall.

This Set Includes: 

-10 Eyeshadows
-Covet Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir
-Mini Perfect Brow Pencil in Dark Brown
-Dual Lining/Blending Brush
-Look Book 


(from left to right: Cream, Antique, Rum Cake, Moss, Truffle)

(from left to right: Ballet, Orange Soda, Sienna, Pink Sapphire, Black Diamond)

These colors (and eyeliner) are so pigmented and perfect for fall and I can't wait to create some fun new eye looks with them! I haven't seen this palette is in stores yet, but when it is you'll want to get your hands on it ASAP before it sells out!

Mally Evercolor Poreless Face Defender Review

Woo I'm finally back - it seems like I haven't been here for forever! I hope you all had an amazing summer and are still enjoying these warm and beautiful days!

Anyways, let's get on to the review...I'm sure if you've watched QVC you've heard of Mally Beauty and I'm excited to say that this brand is FINALLY being sold at Ulta! So I obviously had to pick up her most famous product... the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender.

When I first opened it, I was super impressed with the packaging. It comes in a sleek purple compact with the sponge you use to apply it. Now, most transparent powders are white in color, but this Face Defender is COMPLETELY transparent, which is something I've never seen before. I took some on my finger and rubbed it on the back of my hand and the consistency is almost too hard to describe but it made the back of my hand feel like pure silk.

This product is said to get rid of oil, fine lines and pores - all which will make you look younger (unlike normal powders which can make you look cakey, dry and old). Moreover, since it is actually transparent, it won't give you a whitecast in photos.

You don't need to use a lot of this product for it to set your makeup and get rid of shine. Also, it is super easy to apply. I still need to touch up every few hours (which is normal for me) but I didn't have to touch up as often as I would normally.

Would I buy this product again? YES!
Would I recommend this to a friend? ABSOLUTELY!!
