September Beauty and Skin Care Favorites

IMG_5443.JPG

It's the end of the month which means, I can finally share with you my September beauty and skin care favorites! There were a BUNCH of new releases this September and quite frankly, I couldn't get my hands on all of them, but I definitely grabbed some of the best.

 

Some of you may wonder why I do this blog post/video every month, and to be honest, it's pretty fun for me to do! I love looking back at the month and seeing how the beauty and skin care game changed for me. More specifically, doing this favorites of the month blog allows me to expand my collection and give you guys insights in to products that are worth buying for your collection. I take these very seriously because I never want to mislead you guys into buying something that isn't good (when sometimes, a lot of people are trying to tell you a product is good when in reality, it's crap!)

 

So let's cut the chit chat and get right into the favorites! 

 

Beauty Favorites

 

Fenty Beauty Soft Filt'r Primer and Foundation

 

You had to know this one was coming! I did a full review over the Fenty Beauty collection that you can check out here, but out of the collection, these two products were my absolute favorites! The primer has absolutely grown on me. It is a very hydrating foundation which can help with my oily skin, but it keeps my foundations pretty matte throughout the day too, so I switch between this primer and the Hourglass mineral veil primer.

 

The foundation can speak for itself. It's SO easy to find the perfect match for you, and it literally makes your face look like you have a "soft filter". It is very lightweight, medium coverage and a VERY good price point as well. Again check out my first impressions if you want to see my other opinions on this but it literally is the foundation I wear everyday now (again, sorry Hourglass vanish stick!)

 

Colourpop x Iluvsarahii Collection (Lip's only)

 

This collection didn't launch in September but... I just purchased the collection in September and these colors have literally, been the only lip products I've been wearing! The "Curvii" and "951" sets are perfect for my day time natural and full glam looks. "Mamacita" and "Arriba" are perfect for my fall glam looks as well as a classic glam look. The formulas are very comfortable and extremely affordable as well. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Colourpop! 

 

House of Lashes: Iconic

 

You have most likely seen these lashes EVERYWHERE on Youtube! I just started wearing these and I have to say, I LOVE them! I typically would wear my $6 Ardell lashes, but I wanted something more sturdy and longer lasting, and these lashes take the cake. The band is thick (which some people hate, but I need a thick lash band) and the shape is perfect for my eyes.

 

Skin Care

 

L'Oreal Pure Clay Mask: Detox and Brighten

 

The texture of this mask is pretty grainy, which is good for a gently exfoliator on my skin. It doesn't tighten up so much where I can't talk while wearing it, but it tightens just enough for me to comfortably wear it around the house while it does its work. I haven't noticed TOO much a difference in my skin after using it, but it does leave my skin extremely soft and a perfect for makeup application directly after as it isn't too drying.

 

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

 

Miracle product right here! I've always had trouble with dry lips, even more now that we're in Vegas, and this makes my lips soft literally overnight. You just apply it at night and you wake up with baby soft lips. I wish I would wear this all day everyday but, I can't! It just works, and that's the best part about it. 

 

Origin's Zero Oil Cleanser

 

I was a bit unsure about this cleanser... I didn't believe a cleanser could actually take away my oil control problem and... it doesn't, but it definitely helps! The days I use this I definitely produce less oil. The cleanser also has mint in it, which wakes up my skin in the morning and leaves me with a matte slate for the day.

3 Essential Summer Skin Care Products

We all know summer is nearly the most important season to pay extra attention to skin care, so since it's finally here... why not load up on some good products?

Here are my top 3 essential skin care products for the summer. *pics at the end!

 

**to be fair, I want to give you a description of what my skin is like so you can judge each product based on your needs

 

MY SKIN PROFILE

Combination

Oily on cheeks and T-zone

Dry around smile lines

Mild texture around cheek bone area

Typically worsens around that time of the month

Enlarged pores around nose and fullest part of cheeks

Mild acne

2 or 3 bad pimples every now and then, never more than that

Tans easy, never been burnt

Like... I'm outside for 10 minutes and I turn darker than night

Mild acne scarring

Since I don't get much acne, I don't have many scars CURRENTLY, but have battled them in the past

 

So now that my skin profile is out of the way, let's get into my essential products!

 

Tarte Maracuja Oil

Add this to your skin routine for deep hydration around extra dry skin. This oil is not greasy or heavy and is the perfect face oil to either hydrate your skin overnight or wear under makeup for extra glowy skin.

 

This worked SO perfect for me when I had dry skin in the brutal winter, so applying this concept to dry skin in the summer just seems right!

 

Benefit Triple Performing Face Moisturizer

 

This by far is my favorite face moisturizer for the summer solely because of the SPF 15 included in the formula! I wear this on the days I know I'm going to be outside a little bit more or my skin is going through a rough patch. This can also double as a primer for your makeup if you know you're not going to be taking pictures (because yes, it has a white texture because of the SPF and WILL flashback!)

 

 

Fresh rose face mask

 

Of COURSE this is perfect for deep hydration (are you sensing a theme?) but this feels soooo soothing on the skin, especially after a long day outside in the sun and heat. It's super cooling, smells amazing and can calm any redness or hot spots on your face. This is great as a morning awakening mask as well.
