Whether you want to splurge or pay less, looking good this fall and winter doesn't take much with these hot beauty items.  Milly Almodovar, founder of @BeautyLogicBlog, gets to test our so many new products and at the moment these are her faves.


Splurge-Night Cream NeoStrata Retinol + NAG Complex $78

There is anti-aging studies that show retinol actually does work against wrinkles. That’s why I always say if you’re going to get an anti-aging cream, make sure it has retinols in it. This high strength complex delivers 0.5% pure, stabilized Retinol along with patented NeoGlucosamine® (NAG) to amplify and intensify the volumizing and firming effects versus Retinol alone.  Formulated with time-released microencapsulated Retinol, this complex maximizes stability while enhancing the tolerability of this potent formulation. NeoGlucosamine:, clinically proven to work with Retinol, helps support natural collagen and its surrounding support matrix to lift and firm the skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.NeoGlucosamine is also a gentle exfoliant that helps reduce the appearance of uneven pigment and age spots.

Splurge: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick $24

Hands down, Bite Beauty makes some of  the best lipsticks on the market and OMG, I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS FORMULA THIS SEASON. We’re getting away from matte lipsticks, and going back to the creamy formulas again. Thank God, because I’ve been that girl that after eating with matte lipsticks on my lips look all patchy and yuck, and they are difficult to reapply. These liquid lipsticks from Bite are amazing (the shade Chutney actually just won an Allure beauty awards). They are a glaze formula, (basically rich in pigment but with a gorgeous satin finish,(, and they’ve added coconut oil and monoi oil to give a dose of extra hydration. I’m obsessed with these.
