I feel like I wrote one of these posts just yesterday, but somehow it is the end of September and evidently, time to discuss some monthly favourites.
I NEED this in candle form! Now that fall has officially arrived, I’m in total warm and cozy mode and obsessing over anything pumpkin related! This hand soap smells like creamy pumpkin, toasted marshmallow and warm praline…a.k.a. a sweet and delicious butter tart. I can only imagine what my house would smell like with a Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte candle burning. Plus, the packaging is pretty on point! I love the metallic gold leaves placed over the burgundy flannel.
I have used the L’Oreal Pure-Clay charcoal face mask quite a few times since I featured it in this post, and it has done wonderful things for my skin! It does everything it claims (deep cleans, minimizes pores and brightens), but most importantly it has kept my breakouts at bay! If I feel a pesky little pimple starting to emerge, I’ll use this mask – sometimes just as a spot treatment – and it dries that sucker right up. Gross, right?! Hey…a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do…
Even though this is a gel liner, I’ve been using it pretty regularly as a base for eyeshadows. The copper colour is so gorgeous and perfect for fall!
Dev’s sister gave this to me a couple of weeks ago and it has not left my wrist (or hair) ever since! You may be thinking…what the heck is that?! It looks like an old telephone cord (side note: when was the last time you saw a phone with a cord??), but it’s actually a hair elastic! The coiled shape adds uneven pressure around a ponytail, holding it tight but not too tight. It prevents unwanted kinks and avoids awful headaches. As someone who doesn’t wear their hair up too often, I pretty much get a headache every time I do…until now! I’m also pretty crap at putting my hair into a messy bun – something I’ve always blamed on having thin hair – but the invisibboble makes it incredibly easy!
Finally, I wanted to talk about one product miss from the month of September. I accidentally bought the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in waterproof and I have to admit, I am not a fan. I’m normally not fond of waterproof mascaras to begin with (they’re too difficult to remove), so I can only blame myself for not liking this product. Perhaps the original formula works better, but I find it extremely wet! I have yet to apply a coat without flicking some onto my eyelids.
I’m hoping after a couple of weeks, as it dries out, it will work a little better for me. And who knows maybe I’ll enjoy using it a little more when Dev and I jet off to Jamaica for a destination wedding in November!
