September Favorites

 1. bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow here.  I have tried several cream eyeshadows and this is by far the best. It comes in five neutral but very pigmented shades and the texture is pefection. Most cream eyeshadows are either super sheer, greasy and crease, or too thick to blend or buff out, forcing you to have harsh lines. This, is not. It is a very buildable, blendable, buffable, cream to powder texture that won't fade or crease for hours.

2. eos Lip Balm in Vanilla Mint here. I have always loved the feel of eos lip balms, and the shape is just so cute. Most of their flavors are totally yummy, but I am addicted to this vanilla mint. I love anything vanilla or mint, and together they are amazing! I love how moisturizing, but not thick or sticky these balms are, and every time I apply this flavor, I literally want to eat my lips they smell so delicious.

3. Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater here. I have really been getting into facial sprays lately, they just feel so good! I love spraying it on after I apply moisturizers, after I apply makeup, and throughout the day. This one also smells good, but not like perfume on your face, and most facial products that have scent really irritate my sensitive skin but with this, not only does the scent not bother me, but the other properties actually calm my sensitivity.

4. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer here. I know everyone talks about how much they love this, but there is a reason why, it's amazing. Like the name says, it's just so creamy. It feels and looks good going on and doesn't crease, move, or fade. Best of all, for porcelain gals like me who want a concealer lighter than their foundation for the triangle of light, the lightest shade of this is actually light enough (rejoice now)!! I own two shades, one to highlight and one to conceal, and both are flawless.

5. L'Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga mascara here. Mega Volume should be my middle name, I can't get enough on my lashes, and this mascara delivers it, and without clumps. I love the flexible wand and the pointed brush which really allows you to get into those inner corners without getting it all over your face. The brush grabs and wraps lashes smoothly. It's also a rather long brush which cuts down on strokes, and the Blackest Black shade, really is. Definitely a new favorite.

6. beautyblender here. We all love the original, and it now has a little sister, which is ideal for concealer. I love buffing my concealer with a damp beautyblender, but it can be a little big to get into that inner corner, and this is the answer. It is so tiny and so great for detail. I also like it for contouring with cream products, as it can really precisely get under that cheek bone and carve it out. It is the "perfect for precision" version of the much loved original.
