One of my favorite posts to do and one of my favorites to read as well.
Hope you enjoy this quick little post.

September Favorites

The Balm Time Balm Cucumber Face Toner

I've been using this toner for about a month now, maybe a little bit longer, and I really love it. I use it everyday after washing my face and it leaves my skin feeling so fresh, and it doesn't dry out my skin. The only thing I'm not too fond of is the smell, it's supposed to be a cucumber scent, but all I smell is pickles! I like pickles, but not THAT much! Good thing the smell doesn't linger, or I definitely wouldn't use it.

Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub

I got this in an Ipsy bag not long ago and I absolutely LOVE it! My skin is super sensitive, so when I try new products that don't take well with my skin I break out in a rash. Not with this scrub! I use it 1-2 times a week, no more than that. I will definitely be trying out more products from this brand.

Almay Lip Balm in Apple A Day

I purchased two of these a few weeks back and have really enjoyed wearing this color a lot. It's not the most pigmented lip balm, but I really like it because it's super moisturizing, gives a good tint of color, and it smells like sugar cookies!!

MAC ProLongwear Concealer

I've always loved MAC concealers, they have to be some of my favorites. I have worn this one every single time I've worn makeup this past month. If you are looking for something longwearing and something that won't crease under your eyes, this is the product for you!

The Balm Frat Boy Blush

If you can't already tell, I love The Balm! This blush is the perfect peachy, pink satin finish color...and it's very pigmented. If you have not tried anything from The Balm, you HAVE to...what are you waiting for?!?

Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki Brush

My Beauty Blender has not had a lot of love this month because of this baby. I love everything about Sigma brushes, they don't shed, they are super soft, and amazing quality.

The Balm Shady Lady Eyeshadow in Luscious Lani

This was gifted to me by a family member, and I have fallen in love with this eyeshadow. It's a great shimmery champagne color, perfect for the tear duct or all over the eye lid.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Nude

I really like using this eyeliner in my waterline, it stays put all day long! I can see myself having to buy another of these bad boys pretty soon. The only thing I don't like about it, is that it has to be sharpened, and I feel like I waste a lot of product every time I sharpen it. Is it just me or do y'all feel the same?

The Balm Meet Matte Eyeshadow Palette

Another product from The Balm...yes, indeed it is. Can you tell how much I just adore their products. I purchased this a long time ago by mistake. They have this palette and another one called Meet Matte Nude...I purchased this one thinking it was the nude edition, but I'm glad it was this one. I love a good matte eyeshadow, I think everyone needs a good matte eyeshadow palette in their collection.

So that about sums it up for my September favorites!

What were your favorites for the month of September?

Until next time!

Daily Nuggets...

-Annnddd, I'm also pretty bummed I couldn't get anything from the RiRi Hearts Mac Fall Collection today, I totally gave up after 2 hours.

  1. Ooo, that meet matte eye shadow pallette looks really great. I am with you on feeling like I'm wasting pencil every time I sharpen it. Good thing its so inexpensive!

    1. I love it, now I'm wanting the Meet Matte Nude palette! :)

  2. The Michael Todd scrub is my favorite! I love the Scandaleyes liners too! I have 3 or 4 different colors. I really want the Met Matte shadow palette. Great picks!

  3. Few days ago suddenly i feeling a problem about make brushe .I am always looking for a solution finally i find it this article

    sigma f80

  4. That is exactly the foundation brush I want!!
    Great post will have to try a few of these products soon :)

  5. Hhhmmmm, not sure I would like to scent of pickles on my face. I also LOVE pickles (we call them gherkins here) but yeah, not sure about my face smelling like a giant pickle lol! As long as it doesn't linger (as you said), then it's fine.

    Tell me about the ProLongwear Concealer - is it suitable for a dry undereye area? I've been using the Mineralized Concealer from MAC and it's almost finished, so have been wondering whether I should get the ProLongwear one. Everyone raves about it on Youtube but don't want to waste my money.

    Frat Boy looks gorgeous! The only theBalm item I own is The Mary (that's what I call it haha) and I'm well impressed so far! Pity we can't purchase it here in South Africa.

    Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush FTW!!! This F80, my Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques Buffing Brush are my 3 faves! Can't live without them!

    I also own that Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Nude (also not available in SA, although we do have other Rimmel products here) and I am obsessed with using it. A flat-out white liner looks too stark on my eyes, this is the perfect shade for my waterline.

    Loved this post, Lily! My, rather late, September Favourites blog post will be up on Tuesday. :)

    1. Oops, that's a loooong comment! x

    2. I'm so glad the scent does not linger around at all, if it did, I'm not sure I could use it!

      I don't have dry under eyes, it's not a thick concealer at all, it's actually quite liquid-y. I think it would work well, just as long as you applied your eye creams and such beforehand. Have you tried going to the MAC store and having them apply it on you, and see how you like it?

      theBalm is hard to come across here too, well at least in my area, most of my purchases from them are from Amazon.

      I love long comments, thank you! Can't wait for your faves!! xoxox

    3. Thanks, I think you're right! Should go to a MAC counter and get them to apply it and see how it lasts on me throughout the day. x
