I hope you had a great weekend! Fall is finally in the air, until the afternoon then it’s like 80 degrees again…Oh Georgia! Can’t believe Halloween is this weekend! What are your Halloween plans? Dressing up? Tell me in the comments section!
A couple weeks ago was my birthday and of course I got some beauty products, some were given to me, some I bought for myself. I can’t be the only person that likes to buy themselves a birthday present right? :) Keep reading to see everything I got.

1 // Soap and Glory Smoothie Oat, Sugar, and Shea Breakfast Scrub: OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! THIS SMELLS AMAZING!! And yes I needed to type that in ALL CAPS! You all know at this point that I am a scent girl, and I really love all my shower products to smell heavenly. This scrub does not let me down. It smells like the most amazing breakfast oatmeal ever and I literally will stand in the shower, open it up, take a big whiff, and not use it (because I’m trying to ration it out)…I’m so weird. Enough about the smell, it is an amazing scrub. It’s pretty abrasive which I really like and it leaves your skin so so soft. If you get inspiration to buy anything in this post I HIGHLY recommend this. Enough with the caps lock button Anna! :)
2 // Formula X Nail Polish in Alchemy: This color is stunning with micro-glitter and iridescent shimmer and once it hits the light it just glistens. I haven’t actually applied this to my nails yet, but I can tell it’s going to be a favorite of mine just from looking at it in the bottle. I think it will be perfect for Thanksgiving! It is a limited edition polish so if you want it, but it soon!
3 // MAC Blush in Fever (Matte): I was looking for a darker toned blush that would be perfect for Fall/Winter and this to me is perfection!! Just like the name of it, it almost looks like your cheeks just have a natural flush from a fever or getting too hot while playing in the snow! It’s so flattering for many skin tones. If you are fair skin, just use a tiny bit because it is super pigmented and a little goes a long way. I’ve been wearing it nonstop since I got it and LOVE it!
4 // NARS Audacious Lipsticks in ANNA: This is one of the birthday presents I knew I wanted to buy for myself. First of all the shade is MY name and I just loved that, second I really love lipstick so I just wanted to buy it myself. I obviously bought this one because of the name, but I absolutely love the color! It is the perfect Fall time berry/nude or Kylie Jenner color. The formulation of these lipsticks are so creamy and pigmented, that you literally only need one swipe. They last on the lips for quiet a while. They are $32 a pop, but I think if you are a lipstick wearer, you should splurge for just one!
5 // IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette: I’m not going to go into detail about this palette because I am going to do a full review and swatches coming up in a post soon. But just know this… I love it, like a lot! :)
In the picture of me I am wearing Fever blush, and the NARS Anna lipstick, just for reference!
