On Our Radar: Influenster Editors' October Picks
We might hail from headquarters, but we're Influensters just like you! We love to discover and test new products all the time. This month, we're focusing on our favorite fall finds. Get the scoop on what the Influenster editors are loving for October!
"I've been looking for a dupe for Oribe's dry texturizing spray forever and this is as close I've come to finding a winner. This adds hold and texture to my daily loose waves and leaves my hair touchable, not crunchy. This has quickly become a holy grail product for me. I would say as far as being a dupe, it lacks a little of the hold that Oribe has but it's so much more affordable. One little drawback is the scent—this stuff smells great but very strong. I usually spray it then run out of the bathroom."
"This was recommended to me by a friend, and I have to say I'm so happy I listened to her. In fact, I actually have two flavors, I liked it so much! I have I Care for You, Honey and First Help Pinky. The consistency of the oil is lighter than other lip oils that I've tried. Rather than being thicker and more viscous, this is light and airy without being runny or tacky. The applicator tip is very soft and applies a nice amount of product on, not too much, not too little. Although I prefer to use my lip oils at night before bed as a treatment, I have actually started to apply over lipstick to give my favorite shade a touch of nourishment and gleam. I honestly can say I'm starting to prefer this to a normal balm for hydration. (It's got jojoba oil in it and smells amazing!) And with such an affordable price tag, this product is totally worth it!"
"This palette is SERIOUSLY to die for. I just got it last week and have been using it every day. I can not get enough. The blushes are the perfect shade as are the contour and highlight and it seems to be pretty universal for all skin types (weird i know)...i have very tan skin, however, my friend who is much lighter than me tried it out and it looked just as good. DEFINITELY my favorite find of the month."
Real Techniques Travel Essentials ($17.99)
"I am a firm believer that brushes are the most important thing you can invest in when it comes to makeup, and the brushes from Real Techniques have met all my expectations. The silky soft bristles make the application process comfortable and quick. The pink multi-task brush is my go-to because it's not just reserved for one step. I use it to blend powder, blush, bronzer, and highlighters! I snagged this travel set for less than $17 at Walgreens."
"It's going down, I'm yelling—you know the rest. Timber is an olfactory baptism that synthesizes the refreshing quality of forest air with shades of clean mint, yielding a refined, rustic scent. It's widely available and gets the job done. I'd get it again, though every Old Spice scent has something worth exploring."
"Everything about this lipstick is gorgeous—the color, the payout, the packaging. It looks and feels luxurious. I could wear Papillon every day. It's a perfect natural color staple that can be dressed up or down. It looks like your lips, only better."
