Sorry for the long break! Today is the first day it has felt like fall here so I decided to do the fall favorites post that Love For Lacquer tagged me in!
Without further ado...
Favorite Fall Lip Product?
Okay, I am lip product junkie and I am currently loving ALL things Revlon. My favorite statement lip is a mix between the Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stains in Smitten and Romantic. For an everyday, 'my lips but better' look, I love Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle.
I really like the staying power of the Kissable Lip Stains - while they do fade some, I am left with some color on in the morning if I don't wash them off before bed (great staying power!). They are also very moisturizing compared to other lip colors I have used. The only thing that throws me off is the scent - it is slightly pepperminty but to me it kind of smells like mint mixed with a crushed love bug. (If you don't know what a love bug is, consider yourself lucky!) It isn't off-putting and doesn't taste bad, it is just a slight scent when I first apply the stain.
I own 6 of the Lip Butters and I love them. Pink Truffle is a great everyday shade and adds enough color to make me look polished in the professional world. It doesn't really have a scent and is very moisturizing and shiny. My only complaint is that the twist on the bottom doesn't retract the balm so I have to be careful not to extend the balm up too much because I can't get it to twist down. (This is the only 1 of my 6 that this has happened to so I am not too concerned that it is a huge flaw with the design - just a quality control problem)

Favorite Fall Starbucks Drink?
Because I am a student and on a budget, unless I have SBux giftcards, I tend to stay away because A) I am tempted to get the blended, high calorie drinks and B) it's expensive BUT I still love me some Chai tea so I have been making my own!
MK's Chai Tea Lattes!
2 Tazo Chai tea bags
1. Start by boiling a cup of water
2. Add 2 Tazo Chai tea bags to the water and let steep
3. Pour tea into larger cup
4. Add milk (for me, about 1/4-1/2 a cup) and 2 splenda
5. Let cool (I make it at night and refrigerate overnight)
6. Add ice and enjoy!
Favorite Fall Candle?
Slatkin & Co Fresh Balsam. Never to early to start thinking about Christmas right? Bath and Body works discontinued my 2 favorite scents so this one will have to do for this year!

Favorite Fall Scarf or Accessory?
I ordered new boots but they aren't here yet so I will share some adorable new earrings I got at Forever 21 - only $3.80!
Haunted House, Haunted Hay Ride or Haunted Corn Maze?
I hate all things scary so I am going to go with a PLAIN Corn Maze! I have never done one but I think it would be a great way to spend a pretty fall day with your friends!
Favorite Halloween Movie?
Does Harry Potter count? Like I said, I don't do scary.
Favorite Candy To Eat On Halloween?
I love candy corn! And Twix!
What Are You Dressing Up As On Halloween?
I am not a huge costume fan but I did wear leopard pants and cat ears to a get together last night! That'll probably be the extent of any costuming for me this year.
