Day 19 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017
#Clarins Hand and Nail
This is my favorite day time hand cream when I'm at home. I wouldn't wear this at work because the lily scent is pretty strong. It absorbs quickly but really sticks in there, and no greasy can't open the door business.
I've already repurchased in their fruit leaf scents. More like 1empty4newbies.
#beautysundae because you're already beautiful, products are just the cherry on top
Day 30 of #SeptemberBeautyChallenge2017 is September Empties.
Can you tell how much I love serums? I go through these a lot and I already have back-ups. And I also have great news! The battle over the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs Missha Time Revolution Night Repair has come to an end! @missha.official won my heart, my face, and my wallet! I found early results using Missha than Estée Lauder which I didn't see any difference at all. Save your bucks for the good finds. You're welcome.
Day 30: September Empties 😿 Farewell, my beauties! You've been good to me! I think I had more but I tossed them out of habit. ✨ The #pixi nourishing Cleansing balm finally ran out and while I do like it I'm not crazy about the repackaging; they made it two steps when I just want step 1. 💫 I already have another tube of the #katburki face mask because it's like a miracle worker for my face and I need it to survive! 🙄 The texture spray by #alterna smells amazing but didn't work that well for my pin straight hair (taking suggestions for what to try next!). 🖊 My #katvond tattoo liner is nearly out and Ive def got to repurchase because it's the BEST. And it's so hard to find dark brown liquid liner that works! And one of my #jomalone mini body cremes is gone. 😢 This one is orange blossom and it smells absolutely divine. I love these for stashing in my purse or luggage! 😍 So long, September. You've been lovely. 🖤 #septemberbeautychallenge2017#productempties
Day 29: Luxury Product 🎀 Definitely has to be @katburki skincare. It's expensive but each product smells good and does exactly what it claims to do. I finished off a tube of the #completebvitalhydrationfacemask and fortunately had a spare waiting in line. 😏 Almost out of the vitamin c face cream but it's so good at lightening blemishes and smoothing skin texture that I'm sure I'll find a way to buy another! 😍 #septemberbeautychallenge2017#luxurybeauty
Day 28: Eyeliner 🖊 I'm proud this is *all* I have these days. 😅 Or, all I could find anyways, there's always some floating around in random places! 😐 I'm a sucker for sleek liquid liners and smooth gel pencil liners. I don't care if it's high end or drugstore so long as the formula is pigmented and long lasting. 😍 What are your top picks for pencil and liquid liners? 😘 #septemberbeautychallenge2017#eyeliner
Day 27: Repurchase 💵 @embryolisseusa Lait Crème Concentre 💧 This is my second or third tube, can't remember, but it's def something I'll continue to buy. There are many reasons this is a #cultfavorite but basically it's cuz this is fantastic stuff. 💎 I only need a dime sized amount to make my face look hydrated and dewy without feeling/looking greasy. 💫 If your skin is extra oily this may not work for you as it isn't mattifying. Don't use too much if you're planning on using makeup as it may not adhere to skin as well, but this is an excellent and affordable moisturizer! ☺️ #septemberbeautychallenge2017#beautyrepurchase
Day 14 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017
Setting Powder: Makeup Forever Ultra HD.
This is more of an anti-haul.
Full disclosure, this is a sample, the full size could be different.
I have super dry skin so in general I don't need or use setting powders, but I wanted one to keep my sunglasses from rubbing my foundation off of my cheeks.
This finger swatched beautifully, silky smooth, finely milled, imperceptible. But applied I can't get it to not clump and look like dandruff. Per instructions, I used the smallest amount possible. I tried using my fingers, a natural hair brush, a synthetic brush, a damp beauty blender.
Using anything but my fingers resulted in chunks coming out of the pan as you see in picture 2.
Do you love this? Is there a trick?
#beautysundae because you're already beautiful, and this will just make you look like you had a fight with retinol and lost.
Day 29 of #SeptemberBeautyChallenge2017 has got to be my favourite! Today's theme is Luxury Product and y'all know how I love my luxuries.
My beloved @diormakeup Nude Air Luminizer in Nude Glow ticks all the check boxes in packaging, pigmentation, and price. It's so lavish it even has its own brush and pouch. Now how fancy schmancy is that?
Day 27 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017 — repurchase. I chose to interpret this as “items I’ve already repurchased” because otherwise...it changes by the day 😂.
✨ #larocheposay Serozinc-I think anyone who’s followed me for a while already knows about my obsession with this. If I could only use one skincare product for the rest of my life, it would be this.
✨ #klorane dry shampoo-this is the only dry shampoo I’ve found that does anything for my hair. It’s not translucent, but I’ve found that the translucent ones don’t do anything (at least not for me).
✨ #bioderma (both Sensibio and Sebium)-there’s a reason everyone and their mother loves this stuff. I switch off between these two based on season and/or my skin condition.
✨ #biologiquerecherche#lotionp50 -I love this, but I’ve been having some issues with sensitivity so shelving the acid exfoliants for a bit.
✨ #glossier Super Pure-I think this is my third bottle of this. It’s a niacinamide and zinc serum-it keeps my oiliness down throughout the day and soothes irritation and breakouts.
✨ Glossier Milky Jelly-the holy grail cleanser 😍. This is my fourth bottle, I believe.
✨ #darphin Intral toner-I’m not using toners anymore as much as I’m using face mists, but I’ll always keep this on hand to soothe irritation (plus it smells heavenly).
Day 26: Body Treat 🎀 I have a bunch of body stuff but I typically grab the same two products because they work so well. My legs get dry pretty easily so I slather them with @vaselinebrand cocoa radiance. My legs just soak it up and immediately feel better. 🌟 And the classic huile prodigieuse is always a body treat. I like both the original and this illuminating, shimmery version. ❄️ Both of these will be used vigorously during cold weather as well. 💧#septemberbeautychallenge2017#bodytreat
Day 25: Guilty Pleasure 👄 Definitely @tomford lipstick. Do I *need* it?! No. Is it 'spensive? Heck yes. $36 for a tiny, sleek tube of lip color but it's so darned good. 💄 The shades are pigmented and the formula is creamy and long lasting. One coat lasts a few hours so I find these tubes stick around for awhile. 👍🏻 But, still a vice that I indulge in and immediately feel guilty, and yet... here we are. 😏 #septemberbeautychallenge2017#guiltypleasure
Day 23: Travel Essential 👜 Face mist and a multipurpose balm are my have-to-have choices. Whether you're flying or driving skin has to stay hydrated and face mists typically don't take up much space in a purse. 💧 A good balm also keeps lips hydrated, brows in place, lashes glossier, and gives a nice sheen to bare skin. 💫 #septemberbeautychallenge2017#travelessentials
Day 22: Night Out Makeup 💄 Can't go out without a Contour and cateye! 😽 And I'm still not gonna shut up about my @kevynaucoin contour book. I use this for eyes, brows, Contour and highlight and it saves so much time as I'm not reaching for 8 diff products. 😍 And @jouercosmetics lip topper in skinny dip is perfect for a gorgeous pout. 💋 #septemberbeautychallenge2017#nightoutmakeup
Day 21: Everyday Makeup 💄 Days behind here so I'm trying to catch up! 😘 Most days I like to use as little makeup as possible to save time. If brows are on fleek and cheeks are flushed you don't need much else! ☺️ Prepping skin with a highlighting moisturizer helps me get away with using less makeup and keeps skin looking glowy. 🌟 #septemberbeautychallenge2017#everydaymakeup
Day 25 of #SeptemberBeautyChallenge2017 is Guilty Pleasure and mine is undoubtedly these overpriced balls from @guerlain. These give you that ethereal glow✨as if you're Edward Cullen glistening in the sun. Plus, the distinct scent of Guerlain is just divine ❤️
Day 23 - Travel essentials. These are they items I always have on me. So hand sanitizer, my hearing aid batteries, mini hand cream, eye mist, @gobalmi lip balm, Ted Baker body spray and a mouth spray (you never know when you might meet the man of your dreams😂)
Day 21 - Everyday makeup. This isn't what I wear every day. My everyday makeup is just @benefitcosmeticsuk goof proof brow pencil in shade 3 and @no7uk lovely lashes mascara. But if I were to wear makeup during the day this is it.
• Foundation- @maccosmetics maccosmetics studio fix - shade nw13 • Concealer - @collectionlove lasting perfection in medium
• Setting powder- @younique_corporate pressed powder in organza
• Blush @no7uk in Peach Velvet • Eyebrows @benefitcosmeticsuk goof proof shade 3
