The Perfect Polish for Fall

I was feeling adventurous when I recently got a manicure, and that lead me to finding a new favorite nail polish for fall. It’s a beautiful burnt orange, red color called Deutsch You Want Me Baby? by OPI.

I was worried at first that it might be too orange and too odd. But the voice telling me to try something new won out, and this nail polish is a major win! The color is deep and not too bright. It also has a very subtle sparkle that compliments my jewelry.


Fall has been a popular season for oxblood, burgundy and merlot nail polish. While I love those shades, I absolutely adore how this orangey-red shade is a little more unexpected and different from what’s trending. It looks especially great with navy clothes and blue jeans.

If you’re looking for more fall nail polish ideas, I’d check out Nail That Accent’s review of Essie’s 2016 nail polish collection. Essie’s Playing Koi burnt orange shade is similar to OPI’s Deutsch You Want Me Baby?, if you are looking for something similar.


Do you have any nail polish colors that you are loving this season? I’d love to hear if you have any recommendations.

Cheers!

The Best Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is the holy grail of my beauty routine. If you haven’t heard, it saves you from washing your hair everyday and keeps your hair from looking oily. 

I have tried a handful of dry shampoo products, but one has continued to go above and beyond what the other dry shampoos do! Dove’s Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo is the best


Seriously. This stuff is a game changer. It does not build up in your scalp like some similar products. The smell is light and not overwhelming. The product itself goes a long way and the dry shampoo doesn’t weigh your hair down. 

If you’re thinking about trying a dry shampoo routine, do it! It is definitely worth trying out. When I add up the time throughout one week that I’d be drying my hair if I did not use dry shampoo, it adds up to about 90 minutes. This time back is huge, especially if you are not a morning person and you can sleep in a little longer! 

My hair styled with Dove’s Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo for my cousin’s wedding in August.

I have even grown to prefer the texture of my hair when it is on day one or two of dry shampoo. My hair’s easier to style and often looks fuller with dry shampoo in it. I even find my hair holds curl better when it has dry shampoo in it – is that just me?! It worked great for me when I curled my hair for my cousin’s wedding in August (pictured above). I’d love to know if you use Dove’s dry shampoo as well and how you like it.

I hope your week is off to a great start too. I’ve been sick today but am thankfully starting to feel better. So, stay tuned for some fun posts later this week.

Cheers!

The Scoop: L’Oréal’s Magic Skin BB Cream

I’ve dished out the details on why I’ll always love Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer, but I will also always love trying out new products. In particular, drugstore BB Creams have been particularly fun for me to try out.

I love BB Creams because they tend to be more moisturizing and less heavy than a normal foundation (and even many tinted moisturizers). BB Creams work especially well on skin like mine that tends to be sensitive and dry out easily. If you are looking for a light coverage makeup option that evens out your skin tone and can give you a nice glow, I’d definitely try out a BB Cream.

Over the past year, I have tried a few different ones and worn them primarily to work, where I often don’t feel the need to have much makeup on. Most recently, I decided to try L’Oréal’s Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. I was hopeful this BB Cream would be similar to their Youth Code one that was discontinued.

L’Oréal’s Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream comes out of the tube white, and as you apply it it gets darker to match your skin tone. It feels moisturizing as you apply it. But, by the end of the day, the moisturizing effect has diminished and my skin looks matte. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your skin type. I could see this working great for someone with an oily complexion.

After wearing this for a couple 9 to 5 days, I can tell this product has great staying power. I would consider this BB Cream light coverage, like I would all BB Creams, but this one has better (heavier) coverage than most BB Creams I have used. If you have dark circles or red spots to cover up, this BB Cream would be a great one to try out.

Another great thing about this product is the price! You can’t really beat $8 for a BB Cream. That said, the Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream does not have sun protection and I could only find it in three colors – fair, light & medium. I would also not recommend this BB Cream if you are looking for one that acts as a good moisturizer and/or have dry skin. This BB Cream is perfect if you are looking for a matte finish.

Hopefully this steers you in the right direction. Let me know if you have a favorite drugstore BB Cream, too.

Happy Tuesday!
