September Favorites!

Happy October!

I love fall weather and the smell of fall candles, my favorite is leaves from Bath and Body Works! The name gets me every time, because I think of crunchy fall leaves and then the scent and they just don't go together. I think my roomates and I are planning on carving pumpkins, eating tons of carmel apples and maybe some haunted houses? :O

Anyways here are some of my favorite products from the month of September! 

1. Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Foundation

Right out of the bottle
After swiping my finger over it 

At first mousse foundation sounded kind of weird to me so when this first came out I didn't not want to try it. However, after my friend let me try some of her mousse makeup from a different brand I thought I would give this a go. It's light to medium coverage and because it's Revlon's PhotoReady collection it does have very fine light diffusing shimmers in it, it doesn't seem noticeable or bother me. The only this about this is that you have to be careful to push the button down carefully or else you will get enough foundation for five faces! A little goes a long way. I like this for when I want more coverage on the weekends or i'm going out!

2. Bare Minerals Original foundation 

I used to use bare minerals when I was in high school but then ventured out to try different brands. I just recently picked this up at Ulta because my face has been breaking out and I wanted something that covered and would be gentle on my skin. They have added a variety of shades since I use to use it and i'm really glad I picked this up because it covers AMAZING and perfect for everyday  when you're in a hurry to dust some on.

3. Anastasia Brow Wiz Eyebrow Pencil

 Brow Wiz in Medium Ash
Filling in your brows can make a HUGE difference!!! You don't have to draw them on like tiny lines, but just coloring in parts that the hair is sparse and defining them can really frame your face and complete a look. I love this pencil because it goes on very natural and with just a light touch you get the  perfect amount of color. The picture makes this look a lot more red than it really is, in person it's more ash. I did find that this might be a little too dark for parts of my brow so I might look into picking up on shade lighter. Oh, and don't forget the spooly on the end is awesome to blend everything out at the end!

4. Benefit Boiing Industrial Strength Concealer 

Like I said i've been breaking out and this has been my go to concealer to cover up blemishes this past month. It really covers and stays put! 

5. MAC Eyeshadow (Tempting) and NARS Eyeshadow (Cyprus)

Right: MAC Tempting Left: NARS Cyprus
Tempting is a gorgeous red bronze color with a lustre finish. I've been using this all over the lid for the start to a pretty bronze smoky eye. Cyprus is a light beige/gold color with shimmer, it's really pretty all over the lid and in the inner corner of the eye.

6. Vaseline Lip Therapy and Maybelline Baby Lips Balm

I've been using the Vaseline Lip Therapy more at night before bed because it's a lot thicker and you have to apply it with your finger out of the cute little tub. I actually JUST got the Baby Lips the other day at CVS because all my roommates have it and love it, but I thought I would add it in here because i'm already obsessed with it and carry it everywhere. (I think it smells like fruit pebbles!?)

7. Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Mascara 

This is my second tube of this mascara. I originally bought it with a gift card to Sephora from my amazing girlfriends for my birthday! I always wanted to try it but couldn't see spending that much on mascara. Well I ran out and went ahead and splurged this summer, it's just perfect because it does everything it says it does VOLUME, LENGTH, and CURL!!! I've found mascara that volumizes  and lengthens but never holds curl as well as this! 

Hope you Enjoyed seeing some of my favorite things from September!
