It's September now, which means it's almost fall. Of course, Summer still has it's hot, clammy grip on the Midwest, and it's not comfortable. I can live with that, but it's still not fun.
Dare to Dream Pocahontas Beauty Book:It's so easy to make good makeup looks with this, and I loved every look I've done! Simple, has most of what I need in one place, and so cute! You can see swatches here.
Went for palettes this month of eyeshadow singles, and I kept reaching for these two the most.
Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette:
I love this palette, even though when I finally got it, I assumed I wouldn't use it. I forget how much I love warm shadows for my eyes. Majority of the shades are pigmented, and there's a variety of shades to really get a subdued, or dramatic look.
Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Eye on Neutral Palette:
I'm not sure why it took me such a long time to love this palette, I've had it for AGES. I just... never reached for it. This month I reach for it all of the time, from my everyday makeup, to making myself look like a zombie for my interview. This palette is great, with good pigmentation and a nice selection of matte neutrals. I'm in love!
Dare to Dream Pocahontas Spinning Arrow Bronzer:
I've already waxed poetic about this bronzer, and nothing has changed. Just a nice bronzer for the face, and not too overwhelming. A good choice for quick work.
ELF Belle Face Palette:
When I'm going out or I feel like my face is looking a little too dull, I go for this. Each of the products has a bit of shimmer in it, which I like to add a bit of a glow.
Colormates Blush - Sunkissed Tan:
I've embrassed the love for neutral blushes. Not too pink - not too brown. A nice medium. Looks good on my face, and adds warmth without being too over-the-top. It's a good look. Plus, I found it at the Dollar Tree, so it doesn't get any better than that!
Milani Rose Blush - Romantic Rose:
I can honestly say I wasn't too excited to really buy any of the rose blushes. A lot of them were just... too pink for my liking. This is a nice cool-toned pink, that I can't get enough of. It's soft, and blends in like a dream. I don't even care that it smells like crayons!
ELF Clear Mascara and Eyebrow Gel:
This is a product I haven't had in ages and ages. The only reason I picked up a new one, is because my friend got married and I needed it for her eyebrows. Now that I have it back in my life however, I'm ashamed I ever let it go. I don't always use products that are long-wearing on my brows (powder brows for lazy days!), and this ensures that even a product that slides off easily, will last me through the entire day. I'm glad to have it back.
Ruby Kisses Matte Lip Lacquer - Mirage:
This is the only Ruby Kisses Matte Lip Lacquer that I have, and I love it. The formula is creamy, it smells like brownies, and feels SO good on the lips. It's a lot like the NYX Matte Lip Creams, but better! They have some wild colors too, but I'm not sure if I'll be buying them or not - time will tell.
Maybelline Color Tattoo - Tough as Taupe:
Another product that once it's gone, you pine for it. Well, at least I do. I used this as an eye base, and for my eyebrows... mostly for my eyebrows. I used up almost all of my previous one, and then I lasted not even a week, before I bought this one. I can't go without it, it's too good to me.
Thanks for reading!
