Goodbye September! I can’t believe how quickly this month flew by. Who’s ready for the monthly favourites? Writing the monthly favourite post is by far my most favourite post to do. It’s always challenging though because it’s hard for me to not reveal what items made the list till I blog about it. I get so excited about a good find that I have to share it with someone immediately, but I guess that’s why I started this blog ! I had a really hard time narrowing it down to 8 products. I don’t know what it is about the Fall but I found myself surrounded by beautiful warm neutral and plum eye pallets, as well as rich burgundy glosses, cozy over sized sweaters and Vince Camuto tall boots …. OK I’ll calm down! As the saying goes, you can’t have it all, so here’s what made the list.
Voluspa Japonica Candle Made from 16oz coconut wax with a cotton wix, this candle is now my new favourite. It’s nestled in a custom glass container and at first glance I thought it was a decor piece. It is visually stunning, highly fragrant and can burn up to 100hrs. The elegant container can be reused for flowers or trinkets. I ordered mine off of amazon.
MAC Warm Neutral x15 Palette My love affair with MAC continues *sigh*. I debated a bit before buying this palette because I have so many shadows, but this palette is so versatile that I had to purchase it. It contains 15 warm neutral shades and gives you endless combinations, so you can mix to your hearts content. Because it’s neutral shades anyone can pull these colours off. The price point is a bit steep at first, but if you were to buy these shadows separately you would almost pay double the price of the palette.It’s a good deal for a pre-assembled versatile palette!
MAC Hang UP Cremsheen Lipstick Hang Up is a deep rich berry colour. I paired it with Vino lip liner, and Oversexed plush glass. It makes the perfect fall lip combination and is beautiful on.
#GIRLBOSS Who hasn’t heard of this amazing and driven young lady Sophia Amoruso? She’s the founder and CEO of NASTYGAL, an online clothing shop. She is truly inspiring and the epitome of a #GIRLBOSS!

MAC Oversexed PlushGlass As I said previously, I pair this lipgloss with Hang Up lipstick and it’s so beautiful. There is a bit of shimmer to this gloss but not so much that you can’t’ wear it alone, and NO, you won’t look like disco ball! If your familiar with MAC Glass they sometimes can feel very sticky on the lips, but not this one.
I wanted to try this product out for a long time. Every time I went to order it, it was sold out. Finally, I got my hands on it. This lipstick is matte, super pigmented, and with only one swipe you have a good amount of colour on your lips. I love how it feels on and I didn’t find it dried them out. It’s unique because it feels like lipstick but in a gloss formula. This is a favourite of Ms.West and she always has to have it on her at all times(according to InSyle Magazine).
MAC All That Glitters Shadow I use this shadow quite often and this is my second refill of it. I used it all Summer on clients and it really is my go to shade. It’s beige with a pearl finish. You can use it as a base and combined with plums and berry colours.
e.l.f. Skin Care e.l.f. came out with this skin care line last spring. At first I was skeptical when I saw this package on the shelf but of course, being a beauty blogger, it’s my job to pick up these items, try them out and write about them. So I added them to my cart and along I went. I used the illuminating eye cream and serum for 2 weeks straight. I was impressed. I liked the glow the serum gave me and my eye area felt more soothed when I applied the cream. These items for the price was a good purchase.
P.s. Did you see , MakeupByMahaMatar.com got a makeover!!!. I’m not done tweaking the site just yet, but it’s definitely getting closer to my vision. Someone pinch me! I love seeing my vision board come to life, it makes all the hard work worth it.
