Um…excuse me but where has this year gone? It is almost October, it seems like it was just January the other day… weird. Anyways just like every month I show you all my favorites I’ve been enjoying for the whole month, and this month I’ve got some really great hidden gems. Stick around to see them!
1 // Not pictured above but definitely one of my favorite things in September was teaming up with 18 other girls to do Fall Welcome Week. It was seriously so much fun! If you missed all 3 of my posts check them out ( 1 | 2 |and 3) and make sure you check out the other blogs as well, they are listed on each Fall post. :)
2 // Maybelline ColorStay Tattoo Cream Shadow in Bold Gold: If you saw where I started Project 10 Pan you will notice this from that. I haven’t used this in a long time because I honestly just kept forgetting about it. But doing my project I use it almost every time I wear makeup and I have seriously fallen back in love with this. It is so creamy and pigmented and will literally last all day long on the lid without creasing. It is a really nice gold color that I feel like brightens up the eye. Perfect paired with browns, or greens, or bronze shades. This is seriously amazing!!
3 // Urban Decay Naked Basics: This is the original palette and I LOVE this thing. I have had it for a long time now and I don’t know why I’ve never really mentioned it before. But it has really great matte colors, perfect for blending or applying to the crease. You can use a shimmery shadow on the lid and use the dark brown, or black in this palette in the crease and it’s amazing. Great for travel too. I haven’t tried the Naked Basics 2 yet, but I don’t know how it can beat this baby!
4 // Vaseline Healthy Hand and Nail Lotion: I was rummaging through some of my moms beauty goodies one day and I found this and kept it haha. But this is amazing. It is a lotion specifically designed for your hands and nails. It makes your hands really soft and hydrated which is great because your hands and neck are the first things that start showing age, so moisturizing your hands as much as you can will prevent aging. I love using this at night before bed. It also states that in 2 weeks your nails will be 10x stronger. I can’t attest to that because my nails are always pretty strong.
5 // Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops: Oh My Goodness, if you paint your nails YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE. I don’t understand how these work at all, but they do. Basically you paint your nails, and while they are still wet apply 1-2 drops of this liquid goodness from the eye dropper and it drys your nails instantly. I’m not kidding you guys, it is the fastest stuff I’ve ever seen! And this is super affordable. I love it and you will too, perfect for times when you just gotta get out the door or you can use it every time like me because I get impatient.
