Hi all! Can you believe it’s the end of September? Tomorrow is October and I am so ready for fall and the holidays!
I’ve had a fun month trying and reviewing some new products, and products that are new to me:
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette ($49 USD) — I purchased this during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty (haul post to come this week). This is an older palette, but I haven’t tried it yet. This smells like sweet chocolate — it’s so nice! The eye shadows are pigmented with pure, antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and includes 16 matte and shimmer shades of browns, pinks and plums. I’ve really been liking this!
Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence ($23 USD) — This is another product I need to review! Klairs is a Korean beauty brand and I was excited to receive this for review! This is light and creamy SPF essence! It has SPF 50 and is formulated for sensitive skin. It has a water-based it gel texture and sinks right into the skin once applied.
YourGoodSkin Balancing Skin Concentrate ($19.99 USD) — This is YourGoodSkin’s hero product. I use this as a serum under my Klairs essence or my night cream. It it so light and absorbs into my skin so quickly. The claim is that it restores and maintains skin’s natural balance for clinically proven visibly healthier skin in just 28 days. For all skin types. Designed to improve the 5 key signs of visibly healthy skin:
Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Face Primer ($30 USD) — I received a tiny sample of this in this month’s Ipsy bag and I LOVE it! I have been hoarding it by using a little at a time. It is a creamy pore filler and looks amazing under all of my foundations!
Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Plumping Lip Cream in Hot Toddy ($21 USD) — This is such a beautiful product. This one doesn’t have a shimmer and it is very glossy. It’s plumping, hydrating and so shiny at the same time! And it has a beauty color payoff.
Buxom Cosmetics Lash Volumizing Mascara ($22 USD) I have been wearing this mascara for a couple of weeks and am loving it. It’s a volumizing mascara that dramatically defines, lengthens, and instantly lifts for fuller looking, ultra-black lashes minus any clumps. I love it for an every day look, but it can be built up for more drama!
Last but not least is the Natasha Denona Super Glow Highlighter ($38 USD) — This super-soft, lightweight formula melts into the skin. It gives a glass-like strobing effect thanks to its high concentration of crushed and milled chroma crystals mixed with crushed pearls.
I have this in the fair shade, Icy Ivory. It’s so gorgeous! But, it’s not really an every day glow. But I want to use it everyday because the glow looks healthy as well as booming! So I like to brush a little translucent powder on top to tone it down. I kind of want this in Light Medium – nude champagne next.
What products have you been loving this month?
