September Favorites

I tried to pick favorites from a variety of groups of things. I tend to use a lot of the same makeup during the week so that's why I don't always have as many monthly makeup favorites. Here is what I have been loving for the past month during September. I hope you all enjoy. 

September Favorites

Before I go into what I have loved this month I did want to try and show you another photo showing you the lip,eye, and cheek makeup so that you could see the colors. The quality isn't amazing but I'm more than happy to do separate reviews on these products if you would like. 

September Favorites

Kat Von D Shade Shifter Eyeshadow in Love Letter- This is an amazing eyeshadow that just came out from Kat Von D. If you love purples you need this shade. They are soft and buttery with an amazing duochrome finish. At certain angles this looks brown and others purple. I love this color so much and they are reasonably priced.

Nars Lipstick in Dolce Vita-I almost returned this lipstick last year and am so glad I didn't because I love it now. It is a my lips but better shade for Fall. It warms up my lips nicely but doesn't make them look brown. Nars makes some great lipsticks and this is one of them. I also have the lipgloss in this color but prefer the lipstick.

Nars Blush in Penny Lane- This is my only Nars cream blush but I love it so much. It's an amazing neutral that warms of my cheeks and gives me color without making me look too made up. These are more of a cream to powder finish. I think this color would work well for most skintones except darker ones.

Fresh Lip Sugar in Berry- This color is new in the lip sugar collection. I really like the formula a lot on these. They are light on the lips but give amazing color. This is a plum/pink/purple color that I like for Fall. Super pretty.The smell is a little strange but I can look past that.

Fresh Rose Face Mask- This is a great mask and if you love Rose then you need this mask. This is so luxurious to use and I love the feel of it on my face. It is so hydrating and refreshing on my face and am glad I picked it up.

Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Cologne- I did a recent blog review on this. I don't like a lot of their scents but this one I truly love for transitioning into Fall. It's has an amazing scent and the bottles are very luxe. I recommend getting a sample of this and trying it out.

Red Carpet Manicure Prep-I did a blog post on this recently and this is why my nail polish has finally stopped peeling and chipping. I love this and it has become holy grail for me. I can't do my nails without it anymore.

Nuxe Riev de Miel Lip Balm- I picked this up because I kept hearing so much hype about this product. I love it for nighttime. It's so different than any other lip balm I have tried. It has an exfoliating texture on the lips and helps leave them very soft. It has a citrus smell to it. I love this stuff so much.

Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick in Amethyst- This color is beyond beautiful. If you pick up one thing from this post this is what I would recommend. This is beautiful plum-taupe color with some shimmer in it. It sparkles on the eye so much. This is so easy to use because it's in stick form. I'm falling in love with Laura Mercier products.

That's it for my September favorites. I'm excited for October and really love Halloween. Hopefully I'll have some fun stuff to show you in October. Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!
