September is one of those months that flies by so fast you barely even remember what you did for the month, or at least that’s how it was for me. But as the saying “some things never change” goes, I still bought makeup during this busy month. There were some hits and misses, but here are some of my absolute favs.
- Lancome’s Monsieur Big Volume Mascara
I have to say when this mascara launched I was loving the claims for it. The box itself says this mascara will give you 12X more volume, AND is an all day wear. The two things I look for in a mascara, so I decided to give this $25 beauty a try and it delivers. Whenever I wear this mascara, I am almost satisfied to the point of how I feel when wearing falsies. It’s a wonderful feeling without having to put on lashes (not that I don’t love my lashes, see number 4 .)
We’re also loving the hot pink packaging on this mascara, and all the branding they are doing with this new item. Like this mirror we got to try, thanks to Lancome. The brand also launched a Monsieur Big Eye Liner Marker and a Monsieur Big Brow in five different shades.
I love to pair this one with my Lancome Cil’s Booster XL Mascara Primer. I wear this primer everyday and it is my holy grail of mascara primer. Trust me on this one.
I LOVE the mascara so much, that whenever I wear any other mascara, I find myself wishing I was wearing this one so it is definitely my number 1 favorite for September.
- Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector
This poured highlighter is amazing, and really does perfect my skin whenever I put it on. The glow is sophisticated and doesn’t look too glittery. Some highlighters I try almost look like I just smeared glitter on my face, which ends up getting everywhere and creating a sloppy look.
This gorgeous creamy highlighter comes in 7 different shades. Pearl, a shimmering white. Moonstone, a light peach glow. Prosecco Pop, a golden glow. Opal (pictured below), a beautiful mixture of a rosey and a golden glow. Champagne Pop, a very light almost rosy glow. Rose Gold, the name describes itself, a beautiful rosey golden glow. And Topaz, a deeper bronze glow.
- Burberry Brit Rhythm for Her Eau de Toilette
Although this is a fragrance and not makeup, it had to go on my September list. This floral fragrance is a unique scent and I’ve really been loving it. It’s also a great new product that you should go try and see if you love it too.
- Ardell’s Natural Lashes
So I had heard Ardell lashes are good, but they are officially my go-to. With a great price point of around $3-$4, and great selection to choose from these lashes are no joke. They have lashes ranging from everyday wear to Halloween. I personally am loving the natural ones, but the glamour ones are great too.
- Clinique’s Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer
These lipsticks are the creamiest matte lips I’ve ever tried. They don’t dry my lips out even a little bit and I am loving the color choices. They give me an all day wear without drying my lips out, and I’m a huge fan.
There are several colors to choose from but I own the ones pictured.
Blushing Pop, my perfect nude matte lip. Beach Pop, a darker nude plum (amazing for fall). Cute Pop, my new summer go to a perfect pinky plum shade. Icon Pop, a deep red, another great fall shade and also great for the holidays coming up. The last shade isn’t a matte but I love it so much I put it in the picture, its called Bare Pop and is an awesome basic nude/pink lip.
That’s all I have for September, I hope this inspires you to try some of these products!
