September 2015 Favorites!

It's time to do a monthly favorite again! This month looks very familiar to last months post... but I swear it's kind of different! I actually forgot that I put the L'oreal Studio Secrets Magic Lumi Concealer in Medium (review here) in last month's favorite but I guess that shows I much I love it! The Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow stick is also a different color and so it's just one product I'm repeating.

L to R:
L'oreal Studio Secrets Magic Lumi Concealer in Medium - It's great! I won't go too much into this product since I already mentioned it last month. 

L'oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation in #105 Natural Beige (review here) - I disliked this foundation when I reviewed it and gave it another chance this month. Since my cheeks kind of "ate" my foundation, I tried to see if using two layers made a difference. Turns out, it did! I also set it with the next product and setting spray and it worked amazingly. I didn't need the setting spray, but I still wanted to douse my face in it since my days are long. I've worn this foundation with 2 layers on non-work days without powder and setting sprays and it still looked great. More importantly, using two layers helped figure out how to use this foundation in a better way so that I didn't have to throw it away!

L'oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Powder in #300 Nude Beige (review here) - L'oreal definitely has been my best friend during September. This powder helped with the Infallible foundation as well as my other foundations I normally wear. The finish is a soft matte and it never made my face look too flat or cakey.

Hard Candy Contouring Face Trio in 3x A Lady - For my favorites, I'm talking about the pinky shade but only for a pinky highlighting sheen. I'm pretty disappointed in this trio since it barely shows up on my skin. I'll go more into it in my full review, but the highlighter is glittery and the blush and contour/bronzer shades barely showed up on my skin. Luckily, the sheen from the blush was very smooth and pretty that I was able to use it like a subtle pinky highlight. Kind of reminds me of Wet n Wild's Shimmer Palette in Rose Champagne Glow, but more subtle. Even though this palette is kind of a bummer, the blush is perfect for my no-makeup makeup days though!

Charlotte Tilbury Color Chameleon Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil in Bronzed Garnet - I loved Amber Haze so much that I placed an order for Bronzed Garnet as well! It has more of a warm reddy base than the golden bronze base Amber Haze has and so it's perfect for transitioning to fall/autumn. It wears amazingly well and works as a base and eyeshadow just by itself.

Clinique All About Shadow Single Eyeshadow in Black Honey - Now that I swatched Bronzed Garnet and Black Honey side by side, they look pretty familiar. If you don't like cream shadows or don't like CT's price tag, I would recommend getting Black Honey. The powder formula also helps you build up the color to what you want it to be. There's a slight black base, but it's mostly this beautiful shimmery reddy burgundy color that's surprisingly neutral enough to wear by itself.
