September is upon us which means its time for my monthly favorites. I had a chance to play around with a bunch of the new goodies I bought in July and many of them have made into my August favorites. Well lets just get into it shall we
Ive definitely been loving my Ben Nye Translucent Face Powder in Fair for setting my under eye concealer. Its described as translucent which it is but it has a slight pinky undertone which is awesome for really giving that extra brightening effect. It’s like the Banana Powder for fair skin. Plus its amazing at making my concealer crease free. My Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder has definitely been on the back burner as of late.
Ive been wearing a lot more liquid and gel liners at the moment especially to create a winged look. The Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Black Eyeliner Pen has been great. It doesn’t bleed or smudge and it’s so easy to create a winged liner in one swipe. The tip is nice and thin and its super pigmented.
The Josie Maran Infinity Cream has done wonders for my dry flaky skin on my left elbow (I know its weird but my right elbow is patch free and pretty smooth!!!) I also love it for my lips and cuticles. Its not thick or greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin. Another great product from a great company.
I love to contour!!! I think its probably one of my favorite parts about makeup. It can really be the thing that totally transforms and completes a look. The Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Cream Bronzer in 41 Warm Tan is an amazing contouring product. The color is not muddy or orange on the face at all. It blends flawlessly into the skin, dries completely matte, and lasts all day long. Great product indeed.
I absolutely love the Maybelline Color Tattoos. The one I’ve been using a lot has been number 65 Pink Gold. Virtually all the color tattoos are pretty amazing, long lasting, crease free, with awesome pigmentation. This shade is just so soft and lovely and works as a great base for so many shadow shades. I think I might do a Color Tattoo Collection post with swatches soon.
As for nails, this summer my obsession has been pastel shades. I switch up my polish bi-weekly (at least!!) so it’s not often I stick to one shade but I’ve definitely been rocking the Barry M Jelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Greenberry on many occasions. Its a gorgeous minty pastel green with a super cool glossy-jelly finish. Love it!!
During summer I tend to not wear much lipstick but I do love me some gloss. The NYX Butter Glosses have been my go to lip products basically since I got them..I always have one in my purse 😀 (full review and swatches can be found here.) I’ve really been getting great use out of Apple Strudel this month, it’s a beautiful light coral shade.
Well those were my favorite beauty products this past month. I have to say, although I love summer, I’m kind of looking forward to autumn. I love the colors and coziness of that time of year and getting to pull out some things that have been tucked away for the past season. So keep a look out for fun autumn posts.
