Monthly Favourites - September 2010

I can't believe it's October already! Time sure does fly... I personally can't wait to bust out the sweaters, scarves and boots. And I love when the leaves start changing colour! 

Anyway, without further ado, here are my favourites from September:

1. MAC Powder Blush - Pinch O'Peach
I wanted a true pink blush and remember tossing around the names Well Dressed and Pink Swoon. However, when I swatched them in store, they just seemed much too cool for my complexion. Pinch O'Peach is perfect because shows up as pink on my skin, yet the hint of peach makes it wearable for someone like me. Plus, it's more pigmented than other pink blushes I've tried.

2. Bare Escentuals - bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation 
So when my skin suffered through a Meltdown, I pretty much gave up on bareMinerals ever giving me the coverage it used to. I replaced it with the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder, which I still adore. However, despite my best mediocre efforts, I did get a tad darker. So I gave bareMinerals another go (at this point, my skin was almost back to normal) and guess what? It's "working" again! It really does give great coverage and makes my skin look dewy and fresh. 

3. MAC Powder Blush - Harmony
That mangled piece of sadness is actually a blush (I assure you). I've started using Harmony to contour my face (which I've never done before, shock horror!) a few months ago and I'm a bit addicted to contouring now :p.

4. Origins - Mega Mushroom Moisturizer
As I've mentioned here, this moisturizer was a bit of a disappointment at first. However, lately (as I've since mentioned here) I've started using it again and I have to say i gives me the perfect amount of moisture. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and doesn't make my face feel greasy after a few hours (unlike my Daywear Plus Creme).

5. MAC Eyeshadow - Cork
As I've already mentioned, I've been addicted to contouring, and that includes contouring my eyes. I've taken to using this for the socket and also between my nose and eyes to create more of a bridge (I seriously have none). Cork is pretty much perfect for this.

6. Revlon Nail Polish - Plum Seduction
I'm in love with this colour! It's a great consistency (thin, but reaches opacity within two coats) and doesn't leave brush strokes on your nails. It doesn't last long without a top coat, but the gorgeous colour more than makes up for it!

What are your September faves?


  1. good favorites! My september favorites were Maybelline and E.L.F. cream liners, Nars Taos blush, and Sephora Mr. Lover lipstick

  2. Lobe bare minerals! I do use a liquid foundation as well (I like mineral power by Maybeline but its getting harder to find :() I just started wearing blush this year and am completely loving it.. sometimes I use bare minerals warmth other times I use a maybeline one.. I am a little obsessed with drug store make up right now.. i used to use all expensive but I am finding some great products by covergirl and maybeline this summer/fall!


  3. That nail varnish is so beautiful, i've never seen a colour like that before!
