A Lacey Perspective: Fall Beauty

When the beauty supplies power house, ULTA, sent me quite a large surprise of goodies I knew it was time I take a hard look at my beauty product choices.

I have claimed many, many times on this blog that I am incompetent when it comes to beauty anything, but that the more I have been blogging the more I have learned what works for me. From products I am addicted to, to products the ULTA surprise has introduced me to, I want to share with you some of my fall beauty necessities…

Cleanse: Clarisonic Mia
Once at night, and once in the morning, I use my Clarisonic Mia (mine is pink, obvi) with Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser. I have been using it for about 6 months now and the change in my skin has been dramatic. (c/o ULTA)

Remove: Philosophy ‘Purity’
This was an item I found in my ULTA surprise package and I am hooked. Other than removing my makeup with ease, it also leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. I also tried their 3 in 1 Shampoo/ShowerGel/Bubble Bath in Raspberry and I am obsessed! (c/o ULTA)

Polish: Essie ‘Wicked’ & ‘Stylenomics’
Essie’s ‘Wicked’ is my go-to fall nail color but the other day I picked up this deep green, ‘Stylenomics’, and can’t stop wearing it!

Prime: BareMinerals ‘Prime Time’
I am partial to my Laura Mercier Primer, but this Bare Minerals ‘Prime Time’ is giving my usual a run for its money. Another find in my ULTA surprise, I have found myself reaching for this primer lately. My pores are smaller and my makeup is lasting all day long. My biggest tip for using any primer is to make sure it is completely dry before you start to put on your foundation. (c/o ULTA)

Color: NARS ‘Orgasm’
This blush has been my bff since the day it was brushed onto my cheeks several years ago. With a cult-like following it is a must have for most women. Although much more than your normal drug store blush, it lasts forever (I’m talking like 3-5 months) and looks great on every skin tone! Completely worth the splurge.

Pop: NARS ‘Fire Down Below’
While hunting for a wine colored lipstick I walked straight over to my go-to brand, NARS, knowing they won’t let me down. Boy did they not. I have lived in this color the minute the temps dropped (and perhaps a bit before).

Lacey! I love all of your suggestions. I’m so happy with the Laura Mercier lip color that I picked up for my wedding day (all because of you!). I’m also obsessed with all things Philosophy. I can’t wait to see you soon! We’ll have to gush over beauty products and your awesome graphics skills. xoxo. Love you!


Thanks for sharing – I may have to check some of these out :)
