I’m rounding up my September magnificence favorites! Fall is formally right here though I really feel like we’re skipping this season and going straight into vacation with the wonder units and vacation launches rolling in already. I’ll have some on new magnificence launches quickly however for now here’s what I cherished in September.
New Favourite Basis Brush
My favourite discovery of the month is the Laura Mercier Real Foundation Brush ($46). For some purpose this brush doesn’t appear to be out there all over the place although it was launched with their new Real Flawless Foundation (I put on the shade 3N1 Buff). That is arms down THE finest basis brush I’ve tried. It’s even higher than the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation Brush.
The Laura Mercier Real Foundation Brush has a really distinctive form and the right density. The comb is angled and made in a tear drop form so it glides alongside the angles of your face for flawless basis utility. The teardrop form makes it simple to get product within the element areas or corners completely – I ponder why no one else has made a brush like this earlier than.
Basis utility is easy and streak free. I just like the size of the comb bristles too – it’s not too quick and never too lengthy. You’ll find it at Laura Mercier or Macy’s (should you’ve noticed it at different locations let me know!).
Funds Magnificence Favorites
I’ve some funds magnificence favorites this month! They’re not new (a couple of of them I’ve reviewed earlier than) however I needed to place them in your radar as a result of they’re too good to overlook out on.
The Elf Halo Glow Liquid Filter is among the finest glowy complexion enhancers I’ve tried. They lately added extra shades so that you may discover a higher match now. I put on Shade 3 or 4 so once they added 3.5 Medium Impartial Olive I ordered it to attempt considering it will be in-between colour. I nonetheless discover Shade 4 finest for me proper now as a result of 3.5 may be very olive, however I don’t thoughts having one other shade within the combine.
The glow isn’t too glowy. I can undoubtedly put on it alone or combine it with a basis everywhere in the face. Proper now the brand new shades seem to solely be at Elf Cosmetics and Ulta Beauty. I believe they’ll roll out the brand new shades to Target and many others. quickly.
Their Super Stay 24H Skin Tint Foundation 100% lives as much as the hype for a long-wear fluid basis. I haven’t explored a lot in funds/reasonably priced foundations as a result of most of them run too pink or peach in undertone. The excellent news is extra manufacturers are providing higher shade choices and ranges as of late. I used to be pleased to discover a good match with Shade 310. Fast be aware although for these delicate to alcohol in foundations, take be aware this one has it fairly excessive on the record. Fortunately this didn’t irritate my pores and skin.
Lasting energy is de facto spectacular, even in humid climate. I didn’t put it to the check for a full 24 hours, however it did final a stable 12 fairly properly. It’s a fluid method with medium protection however you possibly can layer it. Protection is pure wanting with a refined glow and has sufficient pigment to cowl the pores and skin properly.
I additionally actually just like the Super Stay Matte Hybrid Powder Foundation (in the identical shade). It has fairly good protection however I like to make use of it as a setting powder with a brush. Demo of the product in action HERE.
Dior Addict Lip Maximizers are all the time in my bag. Shimmer Rose, Rosewood and Rose Nude are my most-worn colours with (Rose Nude will get probably the most compliments). Dior simply launched 3 NEW SHADES for the vacation on-line and I posted a quick reel with them here. In case you missed it I’m sharing it right here on the weblog too. Nude Bloom is the prettiest peachy pink nude with a slight golden sheen, Pure Copper is a surprising glowing copper (glittery and tremendous sparkly however texture is easy), Holo Silver is a sheer glowing silver.
Swatch comparisons beneath:
Three different formulation I’ve been loving embody:
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 162 Pulsing Rosehip (among the finest wholesome flushed pinks I’ve tried) and 150 Nude Lingerie (hotter pink shimmer, virtually appears peach subsequent to 162, however I can guarantee you it’s pink).
Tarte added new shades of the Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump. I have to share an up to date swatch submit, however the latest shade Rosebud is SO fairly. It’s one of the best one they’ve made but. Additionally out there in some units like this duo.
The Maybelline Lifter Gloss is a method I really feel like all of you already find out about however I’ve rediscovered it and it made my favorites record this month. I picked up the jelly shades from the summer time launch and love them. Peach Ring and Gummy Bear are so fairly. I additionally restocked a couple of I had used up – Reef is the right gentle impartial.
Bathtub & Physique Care
Two physique care gadgets I’ve been loving are from Ouai and Herbivore Botanicals. We’ve been utilizing the Ouai Fur Bebe Pet Shampoo on Ollie and he all the time smells so good after we wash him with this. I had hoped there was a human possibility in the identical scent however there’s not.
I’ve tried Melrose Place earlier than (and cherished it) however needed to attempt one thing new so I ordered Dean Street. It’s a very nice fruity floral that isn’t too candy. It has linden blossom and slightly little bit of amber to steadiness it out. Smells clear, contemporary and I’ve cherished it sufficient to purchase a couple of refills.
Herbivore Botanicals despatched over a couple of issues to attempt for a mission. I actually love their Nova Serum and now am curious in regards to the different serums they’ve of their lineup. The stand out to me is their Cloud Milk Coconut Firming Body Cream. I’ve been obsessive about their Coconut Bath Milk Soak for the longest time and was actually excited for a physique cream.
It’s a silky buttery easy cream that feels light-weight like a cloud if you apply. It’s evenly scented with coconut and vanilla however isn’t overpowering. For a fast reference, should you like the feel of Kopari lotions however aren’t a fan of the sturdy scent or tremendous thick texture, I feel the Herbivore is a greater possibility. It’s creamy and hydrating however quick absorbing, not sticky and isn’t overpowering in scent.
Fall Nail Polish
I’ve been in my neutral-nail polish period for thus lengthy I really feel prefer it’s time for a change. I pulled out the Chanel Le Vernis in 165 Bois des Iles once more (reviewed here with the fall collection) and have been actually shocked by all of the compliments and a focus it’s getting!
Different Make-up Loves
For the cheeks (blush, bronzer, spotlight) the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palettes (reviewed here) have been in heavy rotation. I hold going forwards and backwards between Jellyfish and Leopard as my favourite. Even with repeat shades or similarities I discover myself reaching for these probably the most and suppose they’re very versatile. They’re now out there in any respect retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora, Bluemercury and Ulta Beauty.
I’ve filmed appears with all three:
I even have a couple of repeats which have made the favorites record once more. I feel the Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder and Concealer are holy grail materials. You possibly can learn the full review here, however nothing actually compares to the airbrushed look or lasting energy that Prisme Libre has.
The Gucci Illuminator is among the prettiest liquid highlighters I’ve tried. I don’t know why it’s not raved about extra! Review + swatches in this post here. (PS I’ll be posting my evaluation + swatches of the brand new Gucci Concealer very quickly.)
Celine Parade has been in heavy rotation. It’s a fantastic citrus scent I feel is tremendous distinctive and completely different. You possibly can read my review of all their perfumes in this post. I’ve tried the others over the previous yr and Parade nonetheless stays my favourite.
Final however not least, I needed to provide the ghd Platinum+ Hair Styler one other point out. It’s my primary go-to hair styling took for glossy easy hair or waves. As a lot as I like the Dyson Airwrap for simple waves, the curls simply don’t final so long as with a scorching instrument. (I do use it commonly as a blow dryer although.) The ghd flat iron goes with me on each journey and it’s a life saver to fashion hair. I used to be thrilled to companion with them once more to indicate a how-to demo of tips on how to curl my hair with it. For me it’s notably helpful as a result of I’m not one of the best at curling my hair with a curling iron – I virtually all the time burn my fingers or brow and some instances I’ve sizzled off hair as a result of the irons had been too scorching.
The ghd Platinum+ Styler stays at a continuing 365 diploma temperature. It has sensors inside to take care of that fixed warmth.
That wraps up September’s favorites! What did you like this previous month?
