I haven’t wrote about my monthly favorites for few months now just because I was using the same products that I talked about in my previous favorites. September and October were two months where I added few new things to my daily use.
First I would like to talk about skin and hair care. I was beyond happy to see Soap & Glory products at our local Ulta store few weeks ago. I fell in love with this brand when I first tried their body butter last year and instantly fell in love, when I wanted to repurchase it the brand was discontinued at Sephora. This stuff is amazing!!! It is very moisturizing and the scent is so wonderful! It was hard not to purchase everything they had on the shelves but I managed not to let myself go crazy and only purchased The Righteous Butter body lotion.
Alrigh, moving on to hair care. There are not many products that I use for my hair but this product just cought my eye. It is Pantene Powerful Body Booster spray. This product is suppose to help style your hair easier as well as making hair look healthier. I am happy to say that it does exactly what it said it would. I noticed that my hair looks shiny, healthy and hair styles look better then they would before.
For my face I really have been loving Peter Thomas Roth peeling gel. It is such a strange product, when you apply and massage it, it rolls dead skin off the face leaving it feeling very fresh and clean.
I’ve been struggling with dull skin and dark spots for very long time. As a treatment I like to use Fresh Peony Brightening night mask. The difference was noticeable in my skin after couple of uses.
Two blushes that I’ve been obsessed over are Dallas by Benefit and Sand Pink by Bobbi Brown. Benefit Dallas is bronzy toned blush which is the best for summer but I can’t seem to stop using it in fall. The Bobbi Brown Sand Pink is very fall appropriate color that has an amazing pigmentation and it looks perfect combined with Benefit blush.
As you can see I got a lot of use out of my Lancôme eye shadow pallet in color Taupe Craze . The quality of these eye shadows are some of the best that I’ve tried and the colors are very gorgeous! Besides the eye shadow pallet I’ve been also loving Rimmel London Scandaleyes shadow paint in color Chestnut Taupe. It is one of the best drugstore products that stays put throughout the day and does not crease. The color is very similar to my Lancôme eye shadow pallet.
The mascaras that I’ve been using are The Rimmel London Lift Me Up and YSL Baby Doll. Whenever I want to do natural makeup look I automatically reach for YSL mascara, it makes my lashes look very long and full, at the same time making my lashes seem as if they are naturally that way. The only down side I found to YSL mascara is that it dries out quickly, but after doing some research I found that if you add a drop or two of eye drops it will bring it back to life! The Rimmel London is one of my favorite drugstore makeup lines but I never seem to be drawn to their mascaras. After long avoidance I finally cracked and bought this mascara which claims to have vitamins and cucumber. The mascara holds well throughout the day, giving eyelashes hydration and length.
Hourglass Ambient Llighting Pallet is my all time favorite products. I believe I mentioned it in one of my previous favorites post but I just can’t seem to stop talking about it! It was a product that I would whip out for special occasions when I wanted my skin to look glowing and flawless but now I seem to be using it every single day!
The brush is one of my recent purchases. One of my favorite beauty vloggers Tati mentioned this brush in her video and from my previous experience with Sonia Kashuk makeup tools I knew I was going to like this one. This is No.30 brush. I found that its such a great brush that makes contouring easy.
And finally on to lipsticks. Starting with nude tone lipstick the first one is Bobbi Brown in Blondie Pink. As I mentioned in my previous blog post I love Bobbi Brown products and the lipstick is not an exception. Along side with Makeup Forever Rouge Artist N 4 and Lipstick Queen Saint Pink these products are very creamy and pigmented.
Since its fall season the dark lip is in. The darkest out of all lip products is Revlon Black Cherry. It is a very nice lipstick except it takes some time to apply and even out the tone so I steer clear from this lipstick when I am in a hurry and don’t have time to apply it properly. The second lipstick is L’Oreal 402 Blake’s Red which is a beautiful color but, it needs reaplying after a cup of coffee or a meal. Probably my most favorite lipstick out of all red lipstick is by YSL in color 111. It is the most creamiest lipstick that does not bleed and lasts throughout the day.
That is all for my October favorites. Hope you enjoy it!
