IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Serum Gloss

I’m back on team lipgloss after a 10-ish year hiatus, and this wildly hydrating, good-for-your-lips formula is my current favorite. The natural, sheer shades look good on everyone, the finish is shiny without being sticky, and the vitamin E and ceramides keep lips feeling soft long after the actual gloss has worn off.

NYX Professional Makeup Zero to Brow Longwear Brow Gel

I like my brows pigmented and tamed, and I’ve been quite pleased with this brow gel for a few weeks now. It does a great job of filling in sparse areas and keeping hairs in place — not to mention it doesn’t dry down too cakey or heavy. Instead, it has a lightweight, pigmented finish that gives you just the right amount of definition.

Sidia The LIL BB’s Discovery Set

I’m a candle fiend when the weather gets cold — and I’ve been burning through this cute discovery set ever since. It comes with three cozy scents: Braless, with notes of soft spices and coconut cream, Wired with notes of oakmoss and sandalwood, and Soaked with notes of grapefruit and cedar. Lighting one of these up is a much needed self-care move in my beauty routine and they have the ability to instantly make my day more enjoyable.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Power Long-Lasting Matte Lipstick

When it comes to lipsticks, I can never resist a classic matte bullet. These are my most recent favorites — they have a velvety, smooth feel and come in a stunning array of colors. Unlike some matte lipsticks, this formula glides over lips easily and won’t accentuate any flakes or dryness as the weather cools down. They’re also water-resistant and infused with moisturizing jojoba oil. I’m partial to the shade 400, a bold, fire-engine red that remains vibrant and comfortable all day with minimal touch-ups. 

Caliray SoCal Superbloom Lip + Cheek Tint Soft Stain Blush

Lip and cheek tints have become a staple in my makeup bag this year, and this one stands out for its hydrating, semi-glossy finish and the subtle stain it leaves behind. I like to tap it on my lips and cheeks for a rosy, natural-looking flush that’s totally transfer-proof. The soft, chubby doe-foot applicator is not only fun to use, it’s super easy — just one or two dots on each cheek is usually enough for color that lasts all day. My favorite shade is Heat Wave, a sheer, vibrant peony pink.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Golden Glow Highlighter

This stunning golden highlighter from Giorgio Armani Beauty is going to be my key to faking a warm, glowy, sun-kissed complexion as the temperatures start to drop. Typically, I gravitate towards liquid and cream makeup, but this shimmery powder is so silky-soft. My favorite part? The adorable gold glitter compact. I can already tell this is going to be one of my go-to products for creating festive holiday looks.  

RMS Beauty Legendary Serum Lipstick

I love a bold lip during the fall and winter months, but find that a lot of super pigmented lipsticks can be too drying for me. That is, until I tried the new Legendary Serum Lipstick from one of my favorite makeup brands, RMS Beauty. Beautiful, buildable color meets eight hours of hydration with this innovative water-based lipstick. It feels comfortable, hydrating and unexpectedly cooling from the first swipe. I’m loving the Angela shade — it’s the perfect witchy, deep berry hue for fall.

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Care & Glow Concealer

If I could only use one makeup product forever, it would be a concealer. As someone with hyperpigmentation, I’m always looking for products that are able to conceal dark marks without looking cakey. Lancôme just dropped the Teint Idole Ultra Wear Care & Glow Concealer and it’s officially become one of my favorites for everyday use. Formulated with ceramides and peptides, this is a skin-loving formula that helps smooth and hydrate my skin while offering buildable medium coverage. I love that it’s able to conceal my dark marks without having to use a lot of product. It’s definitely a concealer that’s going to be in rotation for a while.
