9 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

Favorite Beauty Products October 2016

It’s time to share my latest beauty obsessions and discoveries from the past month. Every day I test out new products, from makeup to haircare to tools and more. I discover fantastic new products all the time, but these ones in particular have secured their spot in my heart (and my makeup bag)!

I would love to hear about what you’ve been loving lately too—leave a comment and I might just give it a try!

  • 1 of 9 Estée Lauder x Victoria Beckham Highlighter in Modern Mercury
  • Estée Lauder x Victoria Beckham Highlighter in Modern Mercury
  • Estée Lauder x Victoria Beckham Highlighter in Modern Mercury, $65

    If anyone knows how to create a killer cheekbone highlighter, it’s Victoria Beckham. This stunning powder was created in collaboration with the fashion designer and Estée Lauder for a limited-edition collection that had beauty lovers going crazy. Out of the entire collection, I fell in love with this wet-look highlighter which is made even more luxurious by the black and gold compact.

    This product is sold out online may still be available at select Estée Lauder counters. esteelauder.com

  • 2 of 9 Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
  • Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
  • Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, $399

    I’ll be sharing a more in-depth review of Dyson’s new hairdryer soon, but I had to give it a mention here too. Anyone who has experienced how a Dyson vacuum can change their lives (I just started using one a few months ago) will be able to understand how this beauty tool can do the same for hair. While the price tag is quite a substantial hurdle to get behind, the device is remarkably innovative and really will make a difference for those who spend a lot of time blowdrying their hair thanks to its lightweight design.

  • 3 of 9 Benefit Soft & Natural Brow Kit
  • Benefit Soft & Natural Brow Kit
  • Benefit Soft & Natural Brow Kit, $34

    This new brow-defining kit might not contain any new products, but it does include really cool brow stencils and a stencil holder in the kit as well. This system really allows you to achieve the effect you want (straight or arched) without totally altering your unique brow shape. You simple place the stencil in the holder and use it to define the underside of the brows with the included Goof Proof Brow Pencil. Then, fill and define the upper part of the brows to keep it looking soft and natural. The set also comes with Ready Set BROW! gel and High Brow highlighter to finish off the look!

  • 4 of 9 Sephora Glitter, Gold, & Everything Bold Clutch
  • Sephora Glitter, Gold, & Everything Bold Clutch
  • Sephora Glitter, Gold, & Everything Bold Clutch, $26

    Sephora has released these adorable makeup bags every year before the holidays in partnership with Breakups To Makeup and I’m in love with this year’s glittery designs. They are quite large, so they are perfect for bringing along all your beauty essentials for a weekend away. This particular one that says Glitter Gold & Everything Bold is my favorite!

  • 5 of 9 Kat Von D Limited-Edition Studded Kiss Lipsticks
  • Kat Von D Limited-Edition Studded Kiss Lipsticks
  • Kat Von D Limited-Edition Studded Kiss Lipsticks, $21 each

    Two worlds of Kat Von D are coming together—three of her best-selling Everlasting Liquid Lipstick have transformed into her incredible Studded Kiss Lipsticks (with a special gunmetal tube)! That’s right, these limited-edition lipsticks include Lolita II, Mother and Double Dare—shades previously only available in her liquid lipstick formula. If you can’t get enough of those shades, you might want to check these out before they disappear!

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 6 of 9 NARS True Story Cheek & Lip Palette
  • NARS True Story Cheek & Lip Palette
  • NARS True Story Cheek & Lip Palette, $59

    NARS totally blew me away with their incredible Holiday gift set line-up for this year, and this cheek and lip palette is one of my favorites! The slim compact features four blushes and matte lipstick. Two of the shades are iconic must-haves (Outlaw and Devotee) and two are brand new, limited-edition ones (Myth and Unwritten). The Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Mysterious Red ties the whole palette together.

    Available online now at narscosmetics.com and coming soon to sephora.com.

  • 7 of 9 Sephora Sparkle & Shine Dual Boar Brush
  • Sephora Sparkle & Shine Dual Boar Brush
  • Sephora Sparkle & Shine Dual Boar Brush, $15

    This little hair brush might seem like a random addition to my favorites list for the month, but I think every woman needs this in their purse! Sephora launches this same travel-size Dual Boar Brush around the holidays in different colors every year, and the purple one that has lived in my handbag for the last 3 years is ready to call it quits. I can’t tell you how often I use this brush—it smooths and detangles just as good as any full-size one!

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 8 of 9 tenoverten Nail Polish
  • tenoverten Nail Polish
  • tenoverten Nail Polish, $18 each

    I’ve really been into tenoverten nail polishes lately, and these two shades in Commerce (navy blue) and Church (deep burgundy) have been in constant rotation this Fall. The non-toxic formula is 8-free, vegan, cruelty free and lasts beautifully on my nails for days on end!

    Available online at tenoverten.com.

  • 9 of 9 Lancôme Visionnaire Yeux Eye Balm
  • Lancôme Visionnaire Yeux Eye Balm
  • Lancôme Visionnaire Yeux Eye Balm, $85 CA

    The weather has gotten very cold, very fast here in Toronto and I’m seeing it in my skin! My eye area in particular gets dry easily, so I’ve been trying out this new eye balm. The texture is almost a hybrid between an eye cream and a primer—it smooths the eye area instantly for a soft-focus effect and helps to keep moisture in all day long. It’s the perfect base for flake-free, non-caking concealer!

    Available in Canada at Lancôme..
