September Favorites

It's officially October and soon it will be Halloween! Looking forward to dramatic Halloween makeup, pumpkin picking/carving, and candy corn (which I find are best consumed in small amounts).

There aren't too many new things that I haven't already talked about this month but here
 are some things I've been loving during the month of September:

Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm
$2.99 at Ulta
I love the original Burt's Bees lip balm and can't tell you how many tubes I've gone through over the years. I decided to stray from my trusty original beeswax formula and picked up the Honey version. I am in love with this stuff. Sure it doesn't have the cool minty tingle the original formula has but it is much more moisturizing and has a sweet honey scent. 

Too Faced Insurance Primer
$18 at Ulta, Sephora
 I picked this up for half price ($9) during Ulta's 21 days of beauty because I've always wanted to compare it to my (holy grail?) Urban Decay primer potion. I've only had this primer for two weeks but I'm quite pleased with this primer so far. 

One of my upcoming posts is comparing primers (Urban Decay, Too Faced, and Benefit's Stay Don't Stray) so make sure to subscribe!

Anastasia Beauty Express Brow Kit
$39.50 Sephora, Ulta
Read full review/more pics here. 

I've been using this kit the last 2 weeks and I can honestly say using the stencil is not getting any easier. With that said, I still like this kit overall.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Leave-In Conditioning Spray
$5.99 Ulta
This spray is not simply a leave-in conditioner but also detangles and has a built in heat  protectant. I love how soft it makes my hair and I totally see a difference in my hair when I use it vs. don't use it. This is probably my 8th bottle over the past few years, and they have changed the bottle (and perhaps the formula?) but it seems to keep getting better. Oh, and did I mention it's affordable too?

 Anastasia Eye Lights Matte
$21 Ulta
(mine was a free sample with purchase)
Benefit's Eye Bright is meant to "brighten the outer corners of the eye" but I also use it as a highlight underneath my brows. Anastasia's Eye Lights Matte is a soft matte highlight and much more natural than Eye Bright. Eye Bright is a pink vs. Anastasia which is a peach, slight pink color. Both are great brow highlighters, however, they each achieve different looks.

What were your favorites during the month of September?

  2. amazing tips!

  3. i love too faced's primer too! i might even like it better than UD's (but i liked using UD's primer in "sin" because of the light shimmer) because the formula feels a little thinner. they both work really well though.

    my favorite products for september are the lipsticks and lipglosses i got from 'skin food'! it's a korean-based beauty/body store that just opened up out here and they're very generous with the samples. i'm really excited to try their face masks ^_^
