September Favorites

And it’s time for another round of beauty and skin care favorites! I usually am at a loss when I write this feature (30 days is a long time for the mind to rewind back to, it seems…) but since I’ve been on the road for most of September, it was easy to find things in my small-ish stash that I enjoyed immensely. Here are some of them:


One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm — this is a makeup remover, cleanser, and moisturizer all in one. It is AMAZING and helped my skin out a lot in NYC where it was breaking out a lot. My sister’s been enjoying using it, too!

Indie Lee Squalene Oil — I bought this at Space.NK and wanted to try an olive-based squalene facial oil, because it’s known to be great for the skin. I can attest to these claims. This oil is fantastic and I usually use it on my skin during the day, before I put on my sunscreen/moisturizer.

MAKE Colour Soft Focus Foundation — This has been amazing for dry-skin days. I don’t usually like having to put on base makeup everyday, but I notice a big difference in my skin texture whenever I use this. Turns out that this is formulated with squalene, too!

ILIA Beauty Lipstick in Funnel of Love — This is an amazing nude shade that doesn’t wash me out and is easy to wear. Apart from the ease of wear, it’s also a pretty shade that I actually look forward to wearing, as opposed to wearing it due to just not having any other option.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Palette — This adds subtle dimension to the face and helps set any concealer I put on.

BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask — Again, an amazing find that helped out a lot with the drastic change in weather! I don’t even wear balm during the day anymore, since putting this on at night is all the prep and moisture I end up needing for my lips.

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance — I love this shade so much. I almost wish this is the only blush I brought long. It is a dark neutral blush that leans a bit mauve.

Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Corrector in Medium — I’m glad I brought this along (it was just OK for me) because I’ve been liking it much more than I initially did. I like how I don’t need to set this, and how ultra-pigmented it is that I don’t even need to use a lot of it!

And that’s it! 🙂 I’ve been really enjoying my Urban Decay Naked 3 as well, I don’t know why I didn’t put it here… HAH. Let me know what you’ve been loving lately!

  1. Whenever you featured MAKE products, you make me want to order them right away. Your explanation about them and their packaging themselves lure me in 🙂
    Lately I’ve been loving Beauty Blender so much. It just works for applying anything, everything. And also NARS Dolce Vita lipstick is amazing to me 🙂

  2. Awesome collection of awesomes! That One Love beauty balm sounds like something I need on my face right now!!

  3. Have always wanted to try the Hourglass Abient Lighting Pallet! Great post by the way 🙂 Love the tone you give off in your photography as well.

    • Yeah, I’ve tried a few creams with Hyaluronic Acid, but I don’t like it so much! I love this one, though.
