September Favorites

September is my favorite month of the year. I love when the leafs change from green to vibrant colors and when the humidity of summer is replaced with cool sunny days. Here are the products I have been loving this month.

Wet n Wild Eye Shadow Trio: Spoiled Brat
You can create some bold, sultry looks with this little palette

Maybelline Color Tattoo in gold shimmer
Gold is my favorite eye shadow color to wear and it is beautiful for fall.

Essie no chips ahead top coat
I love my In a hurry air dry top coat but the Essie no chips ahead makes my polish last a lot longer than most of the no chip top coats I have tried. 

NYC lipstick in the color Ruby

Ionix argan oil  deep conditioner
This is another really good deep conditioner which helps make my hair soft and moisturized with the help of argan oil. You can purchase this at Winners or online.

 Neutrogena pink grapefruit oil free cleansing wipes
These wipes effectively removes my makeup and feels soft and gentle on my skin. They are also safe to use if you have acne prone skin. They smell very strongly of citrus but I can usually get all of my makeup off with one cloth, and afterwards my face feels very refreshed, similar to a menthol tingle. I really like the effectiveness of these wipes but I think the next Neutorgena wipes I try will be minus the grapefruit tingle. I also advise you not to use them if you have recently exfoliated your face as it could sting a little.

Wet n Wild Lipstick in the color:  918D Cherry Bomb
I love bright summer shades but when fall hits I break out the dark reds, wine and copper tones. This Wet n Wild lipstick is a great fall color. I do find that this lipstick stains my lips quite heavily which I don't mind during the day but removing it is a bit of a hassle. 

St. Ives coconut milk & orchid extract body cream
I go through body cream very fast, especially in the cooler months so I love trying out new lotions to keep my skin soft and moisturized. This lotion is made with 100% natural moisturizers, it is fast absorbing and non greasy. This lotion smells amazing and I love how soft and hydrated my skin feels when I use it. For just over $4 this is one of my favorite drug store body lotions.

Schick Xtreme 3 Razors
As far as razors go I usually purchase the Schick brand. This razor is made for sensitive skin and helps combat razor burn with aloe, vitamin E and shea butter in the strip above the 3 blades. They last rather long before you have to use a new one and provides a nice close shave. I recommend not keeping the razor in the shower to avoid rusting of the blades and to prolong the life of the razor. I also really like the Schick Quattro for women.

e.l.f. Luscious Liquid Lipstick in the color Pink Lemonade 
I don't know why e.l.f. calls these liquid lipsticks because they aren't pigmented enough for that title but if you want a light wash of gloss on your lips without the heavy color then this is a nice natural pink.

Nivea Visage rich regenerating night care face cream
This cream helps retain moisture during the regeneration process at night and helps nourish the skin and improve its appearance. I have been using this cream for months and I love it. When I apply it to my face at night my skin  feels instantly softer, smoother and more supple; similar to the feeling I get after I have done a facial or exfoliated. It takes care of any dryness I have after deeply cleansing my face and removing my makeup. 
Clean and Clear essentials foaming facial cleanser
I have been using Clean and Clear products for years now but this was the first time I purchased this particular cleanser. The bottle says that it for sensitive skin and that it removes pore clogging dirt, oil and makeup without over drying. I always cleanse my face twice, the first time gets off all the oil that naturally accumulates throughout the day and  most of the makeup; while the second wash cleans deeper after most of the oil and makeup has been removed. This cleanser works well but it does leave my face feeling dry so I have to follow it up with my Nivea night cream.

Decorative Vase
 This vase is from HomseSense which is one of my favorite stores for home decor. It adds a flare of trendiness to any room.

Small Jewelry organizer
This organizer is very handy to store small jewelry and it can fit inside larger jewelry cases or in drawers. It also works well for smaller earrings and studs so they don't get lost.

Small pink organizer
This little drawer organizer is perfect for small items.

Michael Kors Watch

  4. I really love those wipes, and I neeeeed to try that deep conditioner! We just stripped 10 years of brown dye out of my hair I'm sick of messing with it and want to go back to my natural strawberry blonde status, and my hair needs all the love it can get!

    1. There are some really good deep conditioners out there, have you tried the Nexxus Humectress, The Macadamia brand, or the Moroccan brand? those and 3 very good deep treatments.

Looks neat and well arranged!
