My September 2013 Beauty Favorites


This month has been a real whirlwind but I am truly glad to still be able to share my beauty favorites with you as I usually do when a month ends. I recorded the video that coordinates with this post just as I was packing the last of the boxes for the big move so it did actually take some extra effort on my part. I love reading these favorite posts, watching favorites videos and sharing mine so I didn't want to skip a month. I kept it simple with the makeup all month because I was so busy and stuck to items I knew would last well too especially during the holidays. Watch the video here or read till the end of the post where I will insert it as usual. Here are the list of goodies I have used constantly throughout the month of September:


Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation SPF 20- This foundation has a beautiful dewey finish to it. Matte skin is very on trend at the moment but I love how this long lasting foundation looks on my skin which has a tendency to get quite dry and dull this time of year. It doesn't look oily though, just glowing and natural.

E.L.F. Powder Brush- This powder brush is multi purpose to me since I've been using it to apply my foundation lately, which gives it an almost airbrushed look. With it's flat top, it buffs my foundation out evenly and flawlessly.

Urban Decay "Deslick" Makeup Setting Spray- I've always loved the Urban Decay setting sprays and have owned the all nighter version before but I'm pretty sure I like this one better since it's also oil controlling and mattifying on top of keeping my makeup in place for hours at a time.

Wet N Wild 738 Comfort Zone Palette- This one will be no surprise if you've been keeping up with my posts and videos over the past month. The pigmentation and lasting power is incredible and the variety of shades grouped in this 8 pan pallete are perfect.

Mac "So Chaud" Matte Lipstick- As soon as Fall rolls around, I turn to my bolder lipsticks. This one was a favorite included in a youtube video around this time last year ironically but the orange-red shade truly is the perfect thing this time of year.


Mac Zoom Lash Black Mascara- This mascara was my a huge surprise to me since I've never appreciated any of the previous Mac mascaras I've tried. I like the length and volume it gives me and the cone shaped brush separates my lashes and combs through them beautifully too.

Ardell 305 Accent Lashes- Being that I don't have naturally long voluminous lashes, I absolutely love wearing some falsies. I often go for the strips or individuals but I've found that these half lashes are the easiest to apply and the most comfortable to wear.

Salon Plus Premium Cotton Rounds-I got these at Rite Aid a while back and have since been using them for a quick and easy eye makeup removal at night and often use them to remove my nail polish as well.

Essie 843 "For The Twill of It" Nail Polish- This nail polish is an amazing duochrome shade that has a purple base and green metallic overlay. In one light it looks green and in another in looks purple. It's therefore a hard thing to photograph but I do plan on a nail of the day post very soon.

Jimmy Choo Perfume- This was a gift from my husband back in June which is the main reason it is so special to me. It has honestly been my most used one this month since it not only smells amazing and the scent lingers throughout the day.
