For Once, I Love Being Double Booked!

The Lorac Double Booked Full Face Collection has it all. A $455 value for only $55, it has everything you need for year-round glamour. I love that each side is separated by cool and warm shades. Inside the chic mock-croc silver case you'll find sixteen eyeshadows, two blushes, two lip glosses, one bronzer, one highlighter, one lip liner, and a dual-sided shadow/liner brush. When travelling I live off of Lorac palettes, and this one is going to be a great addition to my collection.

To Bag, Or Not To Bag?

I have so many cute makeup bags from gift-with-purchases that I refuse to buy them; however, I may make an exception for this Becca leather pouch. Made of soft Italian leather, it's small enough to fit perfectly into a handbag for on-the-go touchups, and the rich reddish-brown color is ideal for Fall and Winter. More than the bag, I am just dying to get my hands on the adorable key chain attached to the zipper closure.

The Parisienne Life

I once dreamed of living a Bohemian-chic lifestyle in Paris, and Yves Saint Laurent's Parisienne almost makes me believe that I am. It's a feminine scent, with notes of blackberry, damask rose, and sandalwood. It's elegant without being stuffy and is ideal for evenings out. I'm normally not drawn to floral scents, but this has what the French refer to as "je ne sais quoi." It's upfront yet mysterious, and has quickly become my go-to fragrance.

Full On 80's Make Up

With all the new color collections that have come out recently nothing has really knocked my socks off, but I love the full-face makeup that designers are leaning towards. Dark eyes and lips? It's nearly scandalous after the beachy, carefree look that's been around the past few years. I'm excited about this trend. It's the only 80's look that I'm really embracing. I am totally going to be rocking the Robert Palmer Girl look on weekends this fall. Can't wait!
