September Favorites

Despite all the new products I have acquired this month, I haven't really had enough time to fall in love with any of them. My favorites this month have a few rediscoveries (always great to shop my stash), especially when it comes to music. Plus, as much as I love the beginning of a new school year, can it be a favorite that September is over and my favorite month October is here?

Laura Geller French Vanilla Baked Highlighter (I can't find this anywhere by itself but it comes with 2 other highlighters for a good price in this set on eBay). This is the perfect undereye setting powder. It's small enough that your brush dips in perfectly and has become an everyday staple. Don't be fooled by the highlighter part of it--it definitely brightens up but there is no shimmer or sparkle at all. If you prefer traditional highlighters, you can get 2 shimmery ones that come with this in a set.
City Color Spring Beauty Blush in Bouquet. This was purchased on a whim after a review on Budget Beauty Blog, but at only $2 this is one of the least expensive items I own. I bought 3 colors, but this one is my favorite due to its natural hue. You get an amazing amount of product and each shade has a gorgeous flower design that makes it feel far more luxe. Hurry and get these online before they run out because they're so cheap you have nothing to lose.
The Body Shop Oils of Life Revitalizing Oil. Face oils are the newest part of my routine--I sometimes use Kiehl's Midnight Recovery serum at night but I thought things would be too oily for the day. This one is moisturizing and I put it on right before my makeup. It sinks in instantly and really brightens and hydrates. I love it so much that I'm definitely interested in purchasing the rest of the line.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Beloved. Oh man did this take a while to get. The internet went crazy when these launched a few months ago, and I searched many Walgreens but couldn't find any. Then, when they launched online I got one shade but the one I really wanted (Beloved) was sold out. Imagine my surprise when I was home last weekend and found a fully stocked display of these! They were buy one get one half off, so naturally I got 7 of the 8 shades (the last one seemed waaay too light for me). Let me know if you want a full review of them! Beloved steals the show as a perfect brown rosy nude color that smells like vanilla and dries down matte.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Concealer in Light, I forgot how much I loved this. It's a creamy yet full-coverage stick concealer that blends and brightens really well. I usually apply a corrector, apply (and fix) my eyeliner, then put this on after. It doesn't crease and might be comparable to the super-duper expensive Cle de Peau Concealer, though I've never tried it so I can't say for sure.

TV Shows: This is the month when all of my shows come back (yay!) but I've especially been loving Scream Queens and How To Get Away With Murder. Check out my post reviewing them if you missed it.

As always, let me know what you've been loving this month and comment below!
