fall favorites 2016: makeup, skincare, scents and more

As I said many times, I love fall season more than any other time of the year: gold and red leaves under your feet, chilly mornings, pouring rain and soft music in coffee shops. What could possibly be better? However, here in New York, we don’t really have actual autumn until November, and this year I didn’t feel the pleasure of fall time at all. Last three months passed by as fast as the rest of the year (and I’m glad, to be honest), and now is the time to talk you through things I’ve been enjoying this season. So, here are my fall favorites for 2016. dsc_0003
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Nosferatu (Nahz Fur Atoo)dsc_0006
If you’re looking for a true matte lipstick that will stay forever, this one is for you. Even though it won’t survive dinner, it almost doesn’t transfer onto glassware if you set it with powder. The Nosferatu is a blood crimson color with cool undertones to it that whiten your teeth.
Benefit ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color and Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel (both in color 3)dsc_0012
My eyebrows are uneven and not as full as I would like them to be, so I always try new brow products. This duo is amazing, as it gives more fullness and color to my brows while keeping it natural. And, it stays all day.
They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara by Benefitdsc_0010
I used to hate Benefit’s mascaras ever since Roller Lash, but this one has changed my mind. I love the brush and the formula: it’s not too dry or too wet, dries fast and creates a beautiful natural look that I always go for.
Zoya Nail Polishes in Hannah and Janel

Janel is a more dark, burgundy red that is perfect for the fall. I also love the formula: it dries much faster than my Essie polishes, and it’s full coverage, so two coats are always enough.
Pacifica Island Vanilla Hand Creamdsc_0014
You guys know that I’m usually skeptical about organic skincare, but this one actually works. It won’t heal your dry skin but is good to prevent dryness. I like the scent too; it’s a bit sweet, a bit fresh and not very strong, so it won’t overpower your perfume.
Bath And Body Works Candle in Marshmallow Pumpkin Lattedsc_0009
I was obsessed with scents since I was around twelve, including candles. No wonder, that I love BBW (like everyone, duh). However, in last years I became a bit too sensitive to scents, and it’s hard for me to pick a scent that is not too strong for me. I liked this marshmallow pumpkin latte one because of the smell is a bit sweet, a bit fresh and it’s very light. It has notes of pumpkin latte, toasted marshmallow, praline musk, creamy sandalwood and white ginger.
Tuberose by Rojadsc_0021
Just to be clear: this is not a favorite perfume of mine, but I’ve decided to include it on this list because it has the prettiest and sophisticated packaging, Plus, I’m very determined to fall in love with this scent that has a heart nose of tuberose, the hardest flower to work with. Tuberose has always reminded me of self: it’s hard to handle but if you can, it’s beautiful.
These were my fall favorites, now, share yours in comments!
