September Favorites

Hello again readers!

Another month passed us by, and onto my favorite month: October! It's very fitting for fall here in the Midwest, and it gets colder (and creepier!). I'm really excited for Halloween, and  I'm even working in a Haunted House! It's really exciting, exhausting, and rewarding. Of course, I'm always very sore now.

Maybelline Insta-Age Rewind Concealer - Fair:
Yet another product that I used up, and then I ended up missing very much. I really love how this looks on my under eyes, and makes me look wide awake and healthy. Easy to apply (even if you take the sponge off, which I do after a while) and blends into the skin with ease. A no-nonsense product that I don't see myself going without again anytime soon.

MAC Paint Pot - Quite Natural:
I picked this up at a makeup outlet shop in Branson, and I was really happy that I did. This is one of those shades that when I was going through the MAC site, I just wasn't interested in, but being able to use and swatch it myself, I loved it! It's really creamy, and blends out well, but sets quickly. It's a shade that's great to wear on it's own with some mascara, maybe even some liner for a softer sultry look, or as a base for a more dramatic eye look.

Olay Fresh Effects Soak Up The Sun Protection Sun Screen:
I've been outside more often in September, for the Haunted House auditions, practice, and orientation so I wanted to make sure my skin was prepared. I'm definitely not used to being outside for long periods of time, but this product ensures that I don't end up burning to a crisp from the sun. It has a perfume scent to it, which isn't ideal, but it blends in really well and has a formulation with a moisturizer, so I don't worry about my skin having itself a revolution and drying out while I'm trying to protect it.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:
So cheap, and SO effective. This has been my favorite primer I have ever tried! It goes on with a thick texture, and it's a bit of effort to get it to blend in, because it works immediately. I have really been relying on this to keep me looking matte while Summer had it's last ditch efforts to hold onto the control of the weather, and it keep the oils on my face at bay, and left my makeup looking amazing. 

Disney Pocahontas Spinning Arrow Bronzer:
Not a surprise to see this again so soon. Easy to use, makes me look healthy, and such a good product. You'll have to pull this out of my cold dead hands.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Reserve Your Cabana "Bronzer":
I don't use this as a highlighter, but rather as an all-over face powder. It sets my foundation, and leaves me with a gentle glow. It's really wonderful to use, and looks really healthy without being too shiny.

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner - Black:
I have used a variety of different liners, from drugstore to high-end, and so far nothing really worked for me... until I tried this. Even with how great this liner is, it does wear off through the day, but it also stays in the waterline FAR better than even my Urban Decay liner! I'm really pleased with it. Soft, pigmented, and long-lasting. A great addition to anyone's collection.

NYX Eyeshadow Single - Nude:
I never reached for this as an eyeshadow, but I really love this as a highlighter! It adds a really nice subtle glow, and really catches the light. It adds a bit of color, but over blusher it's barely noticeable, leaving only the glow.

Essence Gel Eyeliner - Midnight in Paris:
This is the best gel liner that I've ever used. It's black, so creamy, and it doesn't budge. I put this on for orientation even for the haunted house, ran around, sweat, and by the end of the night the wings were still in place and looked almost as good as when I first applied it, just a little faded by the end of the night. A phenomenal product.

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Single - Panther:
I'm a huge fan of the Wet n Wild single eyeshadows, so many of them are on my holy grail makeup list, and this is no exception. Panther is such a pigmented, matte black. It's perfect for setting liner, for deepening an eye look, or creating a smokey eye. For a dollar? Hell, it's almost impossible to resist!

Thanks for reading!
