It has been so long since I’ve done a monthly favorites post! I can’t even remember the last time I rounded up my favorite products. For months, I used the same products over and over again. Things were so hectic that it was easier to wear the same makeup every day. In August, I had just a few stand out favorites.
This tinted moisturizer was a sample in my most recent Birchbox. The Ceramidin line from the Dr. Jart brand deeply moisturizes the skin. It contains essential lipids, which are actually found in skin and help retain moisture. My skin has been softer and healthier since I started using this. I actually use this over my regular day time moisturizer, which is the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base. Both of the moisturizeres have helped my skin look more clear. My makeup also lasts longer, since my skin is not soaking up the moisture from my foundation.
I reviewed this last month, so I won’t go on and on about it here. This has been the only face powder I’ve used all month. It smooths out my skin and sets my foundation so well. You can find my first impression and review of it from last month. I was sent this for free through the Influenster program.
Earlier this year, I purchased the Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able Full Cover Foundation and later decided to try the corresponding concealer. This is a heavy duty concealer that is creamy and moisturizing. I’ve been using it under my eyes and on spots. It creases a little under my eyes, so I set it with a powder. I’ve been very happy with it, as I’ve been with the foundation as well. If you need a full coverage concealer, I recommend this one!
E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipstick in Marsala Blush
Last year, marsala was the color for fall. It was everywhere, even in lipstick! This color has been my favorite all month. Not only is it a gorgeous color, but it really can be worn year round. This line of lipsticks from E.L.F. feels so good and has a very nice scent. It almost smells sweet. I would love to try other colors from the Moisturizing Lipstick range, but this one will do for now.
This month, I’m giving away three E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipsticks. Use the widget below. Good luck to all who enter!
