                                      Chanel Camelia de Plumes Highlighting Powder (holiday 2014 collection)
                                       This year's collection was inspired by feathers and diamonds.

MAC Antiqued--all over the lid as a one shadow look. 

Illamasqua Motto brow cake



L'Oreal Smoldering eyeliner in black--just for the waterline.  It lasts well on me, but my eyes rarely water. 

L'Oreal Butterfly Intenza

This is the season to carry ten lipsticks in your bag. 
I change my lipstick with my mood. 

NYX lip liner in Currant or Prune 

Wet n Wild Megalast in Ravin Raisin 

MAC Sin, Amorous, Media, Ruby Woo

Bite Beauty lipstick in Mulberry

Sephora Rouge Cream in Courtisane + Truth or Dare

Lip balm: Inspired by Trace's Into the Gloss  post about "lived in" lipstick HERE, I bought Starburst Lip Smackers in Strawberry Banana, Melon Mango, and Cherry Kiwi. If you're a fan of matte then you probably need these because they're very balmy as opposed to slippery. I'm addicted like a fourth grader!
