1. Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation ($9.99)
This foundation made a name for itself when it was released at the beginning of summer— everyone was calling it their new holy grail. It’s lightweight, full coverage, provides SPF protection and lasts for hours. With 14 shades, it’s a line that covers many skin tones from light to deep. Check out my in-depth review of the foundation here.
2. L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Concealer ($7.49)
You all know I love the Infallible Pro Glow Foundation, but the Concealer is what won the O-ward for fall! The formula is full coverage and offers radiance to give you a natural glow. It’s semi-dewy but never feels heavy, and lasts all day. Use it to conceal or highlight— it’ll blend in with your skin flawlessly.
3. Simple Water Boost Micellar Facial Gel Wash ($13.31)
I just received this myself and can’t wait to test it out for the season! This face wash harnesses the cleansing power of micellar water and puts it in a gel formula, making it easy to wash away makeup, dirt and oil. While it cleanses, your skin gets a hydration boost to leave it feeling comfortable and refreshed, NEVER tight or dry.
4. L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara ($7.49)
Have you seen enough YouTube videos on this one yet? Many deem it a dupe of Too Faced’s Better than Sex mascara … and I can’t deny the visual similarities. Fellow beauty gurus have raved about getting incredible, fanned out volume and length with one easy glide. This one is definitely at the top of my must-try list.
5. L’Oreal Pure Clay Cleanser, Exfoliate & Refine ($5.88)
This fun clay-to-mousse cleanser helps to exfoliate dead skin cells and unclog pores. Your skin will feel smoother thanks to the scrubbing particles, with even texture and clarity with daily use. This is a great double-duty product to fit more into your routine without juggling multiple products!
6. Maybelline New York The City Mini Palette in Chill Brunch Neutrals ($7.99)
The Citi Mini Palettes are small, but they pack a punch with bold and versatile color. The Chill Brunch Neutrals palette contains sultry purple shades that give off a truly fall vibe. The complimentary champagnes and silvers can help amp up your look, and it’s easy to go from day to night with the shades and portability.
7. essie Gel Couture Gala in Front Page Worthy ($11.49)
Every girl needs a good blue polish in her collection. Front Page Worthy from essie’s Gala Collection is a bold and rich sapphire with shimmer that will match so many different looks for every occasion. The Gel Couture line is supposed to last up to a week without any chipping— all the benefit of a gel manicure without the hassle! Perfect for busy women.
8. Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask ($14.94 for 6)
The MoistureBomb sheet masks will be perfect as we transition into the chilly, dry months to keep your glow going. The one-use mask contains half a bottle of serum— HALF. A. BOTTLE! Needless to say, you’ll be left with intense and long-lasting hydration so you’ll always be left with soft and supple skin.
9. Garnier Fructis Style Flexible Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray ($3.47)
I remember back in the day when hairspray was a necessary evil— your hair would be hard and crunchy, but your style would stick for hours. Not anymore! The Flexible Control Hairspray keeps your style in place while leaving your hair free and flowy. It also provides frizz protection against humid climates so nothing can compromise your ‘do.
10. Dove Dermacare Scalp Anti-Dandruff Conditioner ($4.88)
I personally struggle with dandruff tenfold in the fall and winter. We just finished a bottle of this at home and it has helped keep things under control. The shampoo/conditioner duo helps relieve itchy, dry scalps and the coconut shea butter scent is ANYTHING but dandruff shampoo-y. Plus, it still does great with my hair in keeping it moisturized and shiny, so I’m not missing out on anything I love just because I need to treat my scalp.
