For today's post I'm teaming up with L'Oreal Paris to bring you a nighttime look with a pop of teal. I was sent several products from their line to come up with this look which is simple and affordable (remember to always take advantage of the buy-one-get-one deals at the drugstore). I'm also hosting a giveaway where you can win some L'Oreal Paris products for yourself.

I'm sure a lot of you have noticed your skin getting drier and drier as December approaches. Dryness affects your hands as well as your complexion. I was sent the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Fast Absorbing Hand Cream to try for 7 days and report back on my results. I'll also be sharing my tips on dealing with the dryness that comes with the winter season.

Several of the products in this blog post tend to make frequent appearances on my blog so I will link to their reviews below. Overall, I love how this turned out.

Go Bold or Go Home: Purple Lips

Purple lipsticks verge on the "unconventional" side but they're still a lip color that most casual makeup wearers are willing to use. Probably because of its proximity to pink. I've also noticed that during the fall/winter season we are more likely to experiment with bold lips. So if you're looking to try fun bold colors but aren't ready to go for blues, oranges, and blacks, here are some recommendations for purple lip colors. (P.S. And no worries, blue and black lipsticks will be featured on the blog soon!

Did you get invited to a last minute Halloween party? Are you on a tight budget and don't want to buy any additional products in order to dress up? Or maybe you just can't be bothered. Here's an easy look you can create with products you already have in your makeup collection.

Review: Rimmel Stay Blushed in Apricot Glow

I got this product several months ago after seeing it featured in a few blogs but hadn't gotten around to reviewing it because I find it a bit ordinary. It does have some positive qualities, one of which would be it's affordable price. I simply wasn't blown away. The product I'm talking about is the Rimmel Stay Blushed! Liquid Cheek Tint in Apricot Glow ($3).

It's crunch time. We're halfway through October and Halloween is almost here. Last year I posted several Halloween looks that were great last-minute or low-cost ideas because they revolved around the makeup, not the outfit. For this year's first Halloween look I'm following the same train of thought with a mermaid makeup tutorial. You can pair this with any turquoise or blue skater dress, glitter top or scale print skirt. For this I took part of the #NeutrogenaFaceOff challenge to help me take all of this off at the end of the night using the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes which I purchased from Walmart.

FOTD: Oktoberfest

I am embracing autumn in every single way possible (as much as I can considering I live in the tropics). You can be certain that hot coffees and pumpkin flavored beers are being consumed on a weekly basis. In terms of makeup, I have been favoring vampy lipsticks (so original~) and really warm, almost orange toned, eyeshadows. Here's a makeup look I created the other day incorporating the warmer eyeshadows in my collection...
