Favorites // September 2017

I haven’t done a monthly favorites in FOREVER! You’ll recognize some of these products from my previous posts, and some will be brand new!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

This is one of those products you probably recognize from the last couple of years. The coverage, consistency, and color selection is perfect. I use this both under my eyes and to cover blemishes! I purchased mine here.

HourglassAmbient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion

I’m a huge blush junkie and I’ve hit pan on this blush! I’m in love with the color and finish more than anything else. It looks amazing on my fair skin! I purchased mine here.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser

The price tag might shock you on this one ($42 for 1.7oz) but this is so worth it! I was first weirded out that you apply this to your face dry, but it works miracles. I now use it on my face everything night! It gets rid of my dead skin cells and brightens my skin like no other cleanser has done for my skin before! I purchased mine here.

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

This is another one of those products where the price tag shocks you ($55 for .5oz), but I’m a firm believer in investing in great skincare. The better your skin is, the less time you’ll spend covering all of those imperfections. I purchased mine here.

Beauty 360 Micellar Cleansing Water

This is hands down my favorite cleansing water, especially for the price (13.5 oz for $6.99) You can find it at your local CVS (beauty 360 is their generic brand). This lasts me about 2-3 months and I use it nightly. It works just as well as the more expensive micellar waters I’ve used! You can get yours here! It’s currently on sale for 30%!

SeneGence LipSense in Caramel Latte

Caramel Latte has been my go-to color for most of the month. It’s the perfect fall color! You get purchase yours here!

SeneGence Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation

I go back and forth between wearing a foundation and Tinted moisturizer. If I wear foundation, this is the one I go for. It evens out my skin tone beautifully and has buildable medium to full coverage. And they make it in a shade light enough for me!!! If you’re interested in ordering one, let me know!

SeneGence ShadowSense in Moca Java Shimmer

This is my eyeshadow to wear all over the lid on its own on those days when I’m in a rush. I apply some with the wand and blend out with one of my favorite Sigma brushes. Order yours here!

That’s it for my monthly favorites! I would love if you liked my new Facebook group for my blog when you can get behind the scenes look at posts and extras you won’t find here! Like it here!

My New Facebook Page!

Hey guys! I decided to create a Facebook page for my blog to widen my audience! On my page, I’ll link to these blog posts as well as give behind-the-scenes looks at my posts! I love the ability to be able to show you a quick picture of a product I’m loving that you might see show up on my monthly favorites. Or maybe a quick MOTD post when I just don’t have the time to write a full one out here because, well, I have a one year old that can be really needy! So, please, I would love it if you liked my Facebook page so I can interact with you on a whole new level! And I would love you even more if you asked some of your beauty loving friends to like my page as well!

Love, Melanie
