Hey my flowers! 🌸🌺🌻🌼🌹🌷
AUTUMN IS HERE! 🍁🍂
I thought I’d write a little post today to let you know some of my thoughts about Autumn. Now today was the first day I’ve actually felt like autumn was here, I had a meeting about my OPT (which is something that allows me to work next year in the states within my field of study) I decided to walk home from this meeting and oh my, the sites I saw walking across the Brooklyn bridge were absolutely delightful. There is nothing I love more than feeling the crisp air on my face and seeing my breath misting away, and being completely wrapped up in my warm coat, a scarf, hat and 2 pairs of fluffy socks my grandma sent me in the mail as she didn’t want me to be ‘chilly’ this winter so she says.
I thought I’d share with you all a few of my autumn to go to products, I love October and I tend to clear out my makeup bag around this time every year to make room for the new delights I pick up in the sales. However being in New York now I haven’t been able to find these deals I usually find back home so I just popped to my local stores Duane reade and CVS. I did venture out to Sephora aswell but didn’t pick anything up this time, I’m saving myself for Christmas!!
Anyways, while out on my makeup adventure I found myself some “wet n wild” products. I’d never used these before nor had I actually heard of them, but I was drawn to them and they were relatively cheap so I picked up some of their photo focus foundation and off I popped. My god. For $5.99 this product is incredible. I was a little skeptical at first because I’d never heard of the product before (then again I am from the UK – and this is an American brand haha ), I was super impressed with the outcome. It is such a light product and it feels weightless on the face. I found it gave me a light / medium coverage which I like because I don’t like to be fully caked in makeup, but I then did a second layer and found it was very buildable – for me. I was able to achieve a full coverage look and it lasted all night – to which I was dancing and very hot for the majority of the night so I was very suprised it’s lasted so well – especially for $5.99! What a bargain! You can find this in most of your local drugstores in the U.S but they also have a website where I believe you can get it shipped for extra cost depending on your location.
Another thing I was amazed to find out was that all of the wet ‘n’ wild products are actually vegan friendly and cruelty free – which is a major thing for me when settling down and committing to a product. I checked to see the price range of most of the products and to my suprise they were all very cheap, varied between $3.99- $9.99 – this is my kinda product! I have definitely added a new favourite foundation to my makeup bag this autumn. I love this formula it’s so light and velvety – holy grail at its best!! I cannot wait to try out some of their other products! Especially their eye shadow pallets they look.. increddddiiibleeeeee!
What’s your favourite season??? Tell me what you think in the comments below! ❤️
I think I’m a wet ‘n’ wild convert!!!
