September Favorites

I know everyone says it every month, but it's because it's true, another ones come and gone in the blink of an eye. I seriously don't even remember September, but I did love a lot of products, some old and some new, so here's what my favorites were for the month.



I love a good mask and because I have really, really oily skin I tend to use one two or three times a week. This Borghese Fango active mud mask is for face and body, but I've only ever used it on my face, although I love the idea of a body mask. This is your typical mud mask and is really good for cleaning out pores.



This Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick dries matte but is really comfortable on the lips (one of the few I've found!) It's in the prettiest everyday shade called Patina and I've worn it pretty much all month.



I'm loving this golden bronze eye look and these are two of my favorite long-wear shadows. The top color is Urban Decay's Half Baked (enough said) and the bronze shade is Lancome's Color Design Shimmer in the shade Mannequin. This is a no brainer color combo that looks beautiful on the lids.




I've always loved Wet n' Wilds Reserve Your Cabana for a soft highlight look, but lately I've been setting my undereye concealer with it and I love the brightness it gives. It's not too much but it's just enough to make me look awake and sets my concealer nicely.


Okay, if you only take away one thing from this favorites, let it be this book by Bradon Nave. Copper Lilies is about the height of the AIDS epidemic and one woman's journey as she tries to make a difference. Again, the ending felt slapped on which was a shame considering the rest of the book was so beautifully told, but it was worth it none the less. I loved this book and highly recommend giving it a read.

That's all for me for another month and now we're on to my favorite month of the year! What did you guys love in September? Happy Hump Day friends! XO

  7. what a great post Kim, I love half baked too as well as most of the gold/bronze tones in the original naked palette. I have blue eyes and they just make my eyes pop.

    I really want to try some wet and wild products but you just can't get them in the uk unless you order from Amazon and they charge so much :(

    1. Thank you Andrea! Half Baked is so good, it's one I'll buy over and over cause it's such a staple! Oh yeah, bronzes are gorgeous for your eye color for sure. That's a shame, I feel the same about Sleek products over here! Hope you are having a wonderful week lovely! XO -Kim
