September Beauty Favourites!

What an amazing month, September was one for the books! Here are the products I have been loving this month!

 Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream in 530 Light Medium 

I have been wearing this bb cream all month long. It has a great everyday coverage and lasts on the skin all day long. For light coverage I apply a thin layer and a bit of concealer. On the days where I want more coverage I set it with a powder foundation. It gives a beautiful soft matte finish and doesn't make me break out.

This foundation has been my go to for a more full coverage look. I knew I liked this foundation the first time I wore it, but then I brought it with me to Generation Beauty NYC and fell in love! It is long wearing, completely matte and full coverage! Your blush, bronzer and highlight will stay put all day/night long and look amazing. This is such an amazing foundation.

Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Concealer in Light/Warm

I have always heard really great things about the Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation, and as I was browsing through Ulta I saw the concealer and decided to try it out. It quickly became my everyday concealer because of the high coverage but hydration it gives under my eyes. It doesn't crease or look cakey! 
This is an oldie but a goodie! I thought I lost it and recently found it (of course at the end of summer). Nevertheless I am so happy because this bronzer is stunning on the skin. It lasts a really long time and gives you a beautiful sun kissed glow!

Tarte Tartlette eyeshadow palette

Another oldie but goodie! I brought this palette with me to New York City and was so thankful to have it by my side. It is an all matte palette that is really easy to work with and allows you to create multiple looks. I never get sick of this palette and highly recommend it!

Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Treatment

Throughout the month of September, i was having some really bad breakouts. This product is definitely a life saver for me. Whenever I have a breakout or I feel one coming I will put a little bit of this on the area. It does a great job at clearing up breakouts without leaving your skin dry.

Mary Kay Canada Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick in Rich Truffle 

I can't get enough of these lipsticks. They are great for everyday - gives a semi-matte finish but are really hydrating and easy to apply! Perfect for anyone on the go!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Veronica

Anastasia Beverly Hills by far makes the best liquid lipsticks. The formula is pigmented, easy to apply and very wearable! I'm definitely in the fall spirit and have been since September came along. I have been opting for more berry, deeper shades and this one has been on my lips more often than not! It's the perfect fall shade!

L’Oréal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation Review

I firmly believe this foundation was the most hyped up drugstore foundation launch of all time. After its successor, Infallible Pro Matte was such a hit, everyone was intrigued when this foundation was announced, and here're the amazing reasons why!
