It’s not often that I find a new favorite foundation, mascara, and shampoo all in the same month, but it happened in September! Here are all the products I loved in September:
ColourPop Lumiere | I’ve had this lipstick since spring and never wore it that often, but I think it’s perfect for fall. It’s a slightly deeper MLBB shade for me, and I think it’s very comfortable on the lips. I don’t have any complaints about it!
L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24 HR Foundation | I started hearing a bunch of YouTubers raving about this foundation, and I’m always on the hunt for the perfect formula, so I picked it up right away. I second guessed myself and bought the second lightest shade, then had to return it for the lightest one. The packaging makes it difficult to see the color of the product inside…they all look almost exactly the same, but that’s the only complaint I have. I love this foundation! I was getting so sick of my makeup sliding off this summer, and this actually lives up to its claims. It’s probably the fullest-coverage foundation I have, and it doesn’t gather around my nose, which is my number one complaint with foundations. It also doesn’t make my face completely flat and lifeless, like you might expect with a super matte full-coverage product. I don’t know if it beats my Covergirl 3-in-1 foundation, but I’d say this is already in my top three all-time favorite foundations.
Covergirl Lashblast Volume Waterproof Mascara | I have to thank a reader for suggesting this mascara! Thank you, Gwendolyn, who commented on my Disappointing Products post and recommended this mascara. I LOVE IT. I think…no, you know what? I KNOW I like it better than Maybelline The Rocket waterproof. Am I the only one who feels sad when my holy grail product gets replaced? I never thought I’d find something I liked better, but I really, truly do like the Lashblast better. It holds a curl like nothing else AND it looks even more natural than The Rocket. The only thing I wish was different is the wand. It’s pretty huge, so it gets on my eyelids quite a bit when I apply it, but that’s easily fixed with a q-tip.
Trader Joe’s Lavender Salt Scrub | I’ve purchased this a few times over the past couple of years. I believe it’s a seasonal product that Trader Joe’s only carries in fall/winter, so I always pick one up when I see it. This stuff is heavenly. The scent is so lovely and spa-like, and it’s probably the scrubbiest scrub I’ve ever used. I have the world’s driest legs, and this fixes them right up and leaves them super soft and moisturized. I use it several times a week, and I never feel like it’s too much.
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo | I’ve always used the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo, but recently I felt like it was too stripping, and I wanted to try out something else from the brand. The Coconut & Hibiscus Shampoo is the shampoo I’ve been looking for ever since I started learning about curl-friendly products. It lathers up, but it also doesn’t feel harsh at all. In fact, it feels moisturizing, probably because of the coconut and neem oils. The scent is really pleasant as well.
What a month! What were your favorite products in September?
