It’s October!!! I know that Fall starts in September, but October, to me, is the official start of the season! I’m so excited! September was a very different month for me in terms of favorites! I was very into trying skin care products this month and tried changing up my routine! So this month, a lot of my favorites revolve around skin and lip care! Totally off the beaten path for me! But I must say, my skin looks and feels amazing! So let’s get to it… here are my September faves!
I have discovered the best moisturizer ever, all thanks to Letitia Laura! She talked about this moisturizer on her SnapChat, and so I went to Sephora and grabbed a sample. From the very first use, I was hooked! It’s a gel, so it really cools and soothes the skin. With all moisturizers, you get that initial glaze before it absorbs. This moisturizer absorbed quicker than any moisturizer I’ve tried! Within seconds my skin drank it up and my face was unbelievably smooth! I’m seriously obsessed!
I absolutely love IT Cosmetics, so when they launched exclusives at Sephora, I was psyched! IT sent me an incredible package filled with some of their new skin care products, and one of them was this amazing eye cream. Eye cream is one of those products that I always purchase and sort of forget I have. I guess in the past, I haven’t really loved any, but I’ve been using this cream religiously and it’s been great! It makes my eyes look bright and awake and I definitely notice that they’re not as puffy in the morning.
I reviewed this lip treatment last week, and needless to say, I can’t get enough of it! I’ve had this lip treatment for awhile because I received it in a QVC TVC a few months ago, so I’ve been hooked for a long time. This treatment is so hydrating and makes my lips feel amazing! I usually put a little bit on just before applying lipstick, or I wear it when I’m out and about with no makeup on. I went on vacation a few weeks ago, and I didn’t wear much makeup. This was my go-to lip product for the week and it make my lips look and feel amazing! The treatment does not contain color, but it contains IT’s Vitality Lip Flush Technology with gives your lips a naturally flushed look. It’s your lip color, but better!
Yup… TWO lip products this month! My lips have never felt better! If you follow me on Instagram (@HelloMissNiki), you may have noticed that I’ve been doing lip videos. With that, I need my lips to look good! I reviewed this lip balm as well, and I love it so much! Besides the amazing packaging, the balm is incredible! It’s very lightweight and makes my lips feel really, really soft and smooth! This is the balm I use just before bed and I wake up with my lips feeling refreshed! Usually I wake up and my lips are a bit dry, but not since I started using this stuff! It’s amazing!
I received this brush in August’s MorpheMe Subscription (which I’m obsessed with, by the way!). This brush is absolutely amazing for blush! To be honest with you, I always have issues with blush. I don’t really explore with blushes, and I tend to stick with what I know. One of the challenges if finding a good blush brush that helps blend the powder. Sometimes the brush picks up too much product, sometimes it doesn’t blend out the color, etc., etc. This brush picks up the perfect mount of product, and blends it beautifully! My cheeks have a natural flush, and I really do attribute that to this amazing brush! This subscription allows me to explore with brushes I may not think about trying, and I usually fall in love with all of them! Try out the subscription if you can! I think you’ll enjoy it (especially if you’re a makeup brush addict like me!).
Highlighter is a must for me! My cheekbones have to glow and they must be seen from the heavens! I’m obsessed! This highlighter palette… well… it’s everything! I wrote up a review a few weeks ago, and just raved about it! This gorgeous palette contains 9 beautiful highlighters and you can mix and match and create your own beautiful shade! The options are endless! The powders are so smooth, and they apply beautifully! You can really tone it down or build it up for an intense glow! It’s the best!
I received this lippie as part of ColourPop’s Labor Day promo, and I’ve been obsessed ever since! THIS… this shade is my go-to color this Fall! It’s really indescribable! It does transfer a little bit and doesn’t try as quickly as some of their other mattes, but I don’t care! The shade is just amazing and lasted for hours on my lips! It’s like a deep berry/wine shade and it’s just so perfect!
So that’s it! Very different month, right? I had a lot of fun trying new skin care products, as I don’t do it very often! Personally, I’m very curious to see what my favorites are for October because I have a lot of fun new products coming my way! Stay tuned!
