SEPTEMBER FAVORITES

September flew by. I blinked and it was gone. I'm excited about fall though. Boots, sweaters, jeans, & leggings!

I haven't bought a lot this month either. I think I'm more into the clothes right now.


EYES
I have been revisiting NYX lately. I have so many beautiful shades from them, but Beauty Queen is my fave. Also the ELF shadow brush & Mac 224 are the 2 I use everyday. I put on the Beauty Queen with the e/s & blend it w/224, liner & mascara, that's it.


HAIR
I have had highlights for the past 3 years & now I am all one color. (I'll post a pic) My hair is so dry. I use the BIOSILK from the middle of my hair down. It's the only thing that makes it look shiny. Sometimes I'll just use a little of the Frizz Ease only at the ends of my hair. When my hair was healthier I only used the Frizz Ease.
FACE
I pulled out an old ELF product. The blush in Flushed & I love it. I use it w/the 187 brush. I wanted something like Nars Angelica, but didn't want to invest the money. This is making me happy. Also the Laura Geller in Pink Grapefruit. Both of these have staying power, too. My new foundation Maybelline 24hr has been good too.


NAILS
Any color by LA Girls is great. They have a great brush & pigmentation. Just make sure you use a top coat. This is the one that matches my purse!! It's in Groovy.

I haven't been in love with any makeup lately. I'm also trying to use what I have.

Have you been going through your makeup stash? What have you rediscovered?

I have recently rediscovered my Mac Angel and Well Dressed blushes..I forgot how much I liked them..truth be told..I hit pan on my Nars Orgasm so I stopped using it for a while.

@ Meya the foundation only last the whole day if you use the beauty blender & pat it in then top it w/a powder.

The laura geller blush totally resembles the MAC mineralized blushes, which I've been oogling for ever. How do you think they compare?
