September Beauty Favorites

This month I have discovered some really great products!  Some of these products gave me a bad first impression but have since impressed me!

I had to include my favorite fall Bath & Body Works candle!  Having this candle burning in my house immediately makes me know it is fall and coming up on the best time of the year!

I bought this vitamin C serum based on rave reviews from other people who have tried it.  I had a small sample that I used after Christmas last year and honestly, I wasn’t impressed.  The pump on the small sample would get stuck and it would explode out and go everywhere.  I took a chance and bought the full-size and I have no regrets!!  This has lightened the redness and freckles on my face.  It just overall has improved the look of my skin.  I use this every morning after washing my face and before my moisturizer.

I recently spoke about this Drunk Elephant product in a blog post.  I was having regrets of purchasing it. It’s definitely not cheap!  After using it for about 6 weeks, I have noticed visible improvements in signs of aging on my face!  I go into more detail of what happened with my skin in the video listed below.

This facial oil gave me a great first impression and it hasn’t disappointed me since I started using it!  I apply this after washing my face at night.  It sinks into my skin really well and leaves my skin feeling very moisturized in the morning.

This hand cream from Soap & Glory smells so yummy!  In fact, there’s a warning on the back that this is not a food.  That made me laugh.  I’m planning on buying the tub of body butter in the same fruity scent. It’s such a fresh and clean fruity smell.  It’s a light smell but it stays with you for a long time.  It’s also very moisturizing!

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Anastasia brow wiz, but after running out of that, I was at Target and decided to try the much cheaper version from NYX.  I fully expected to be disappointed and end up going to replace my brow wiz.  This eyebrow pencil from NYX is great!!  It is just as good as the Anastasia one for less than half the price!  I have one complaint about it which I list in the video below, but it’s a silly complaint.

My favorite highlighter by far is this one from Becca in moonstone.  I had a sample which lasted almost two years.  It ran out and I noticed the full size product was on sale for half off during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale so I snatched it up while I could save money!!  Every time I go to use a different highlighter, I find myself wishing I had just stuck with this one from Becca.  It is such a natural glow and so beautiful.

The last two products are eyeshadow palettes.  This one from Anastasia is so beautiful and blends so well but unfortunately, I have some sort of allergic reaction to a couple shades in this palette.  That doesn’t stop me from using it!  These shadows blend so beautifully!!  I am loving all the color combinations you can get from the Emily Edit the Wants eyeshadow palette from Makeup Revolution.  I also love the huge mirror that it has!!  I couldn’t find this eyeshadow palette on either Ulta’s website or Makeup Revolution’s website.  I heard it is a permanent palette so maybe they are just restocking at this time.
