1. Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in #011 Spice
This just recently came into my makeup collection and it has been love straight from the beginning. I've heard it's quite a good dupe for M.A.C.'s Spice lip liner, which though I can't verify as I haven't used the M.A.C. one, would be willing to bet on. The quality of Rimmel's lip liners is incredible - you know of my lasting favoritism for Eastend Snob, so though this particular line is in pencil form instead of a wind-up, I had high hopes (and was not let down). It's long-lasting, just creamy enough to wear without lipstick if I feel like it (which I do. A lot.), matte without being too overly drying. And of course it's dirt-cheap.
2. M.A.C. Ruby Woo Lipstick
Keeping with the lip theme, I've been loving this bold and fiery shade of red against almost any color palette. Matte, longlasting and highly pigmented, this checks all my most important boxes and is the sort of lipstick you could survive the kiss-test in, if you wanted to. Wear it with a bronze eye for more evening looks or in the daytime with something soft and brown. Or, of course, you can go classic with a cat eye...
3. Iced Pumpkin Spice Lattes
Of course I couldn't make this list without a PSL! I'm extraordinarily cliche because I love the heck out of these things. Being the sort of person who practically lives for those slices of cold pumpkin pie during Thanksgiving/Thanksgiving weekend, this is just the preempt. And since the weather hasn't decided to bring Fall temperatures to me yet, I take mine iced. It's flawless.
4. Coconut Oil
Ever since I started using coconut oil during the end of the summer I've only discovered more and more uses, but particularly this September. Stay tuned for a post on all the marvelous ways this product is a beauty hack I basically can't live without. ;)
5. Fringe Necklaces
I mentioned this in another post earlier this week, but I'm simply obsessed with this necklace ($5! Who would've thought Walmart could be so stylish?). I'm basically wearing it with everything.
For this month's literature favorite, I've fallen back in love with Hamlet. It does help that the David Tennant edition is just. so. soul-shattering. I'm the sort of person who falls in love with the characters that break your heart; this was no different. And Shakespeare's has an unparalleled ability to mould words into tangible reality.
What have you been loving this past month?
