September Favorites

From makeup to TV shows and shoes, here’s what I was loving in September.

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve done a favorites post on the blog so I thought it would be great to start back up again and do it as a monthly feature.

1. bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation by BareMinerals – I’ve tried a lot of foundations recently but this one has quickly become a favorite. It goes on like butter or maybe smooth as silk is a better way to describe it. Who wants to put butter on their face? Ewww. The foundation contains a broad spectrum SPF of 20 which is great and doesn’t create a white cast. I’m not a full coverage makeup type girl. I like coverage but I want my makeup to be natural. I would describe this foundation as a good medium coverage and buildable. I have dark spots on my face from acne scarring and it does a good job of covering mostly everything. I could probably get it to cover them completely if I kept building but like I said I’m ok with a natural look and some marks showing. I was worried that the foundation would not work for me because some of the reviews I watched on YouTube said it wasn’t good for oily skin and I have extremely oily skin. The foundation gives me a glow but when set with their perfecting veil it is not as oily as other foundations I’ve used. I think the foundation lasts a good eight hours for me before starting to break down a bit.

2. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush – I love this brush!!! It applies foundation great and the price point is amazing. At under $10 you are getting a quality brush. I have more expensive brushes from Sigma but I find myself reaching for this one time and time again. I use it with the bareSkin foundation. I tried the brush that they sell for the foundation and I could not get it to work. The expert face brush does the job.

3. Cover Girl LashBlast Volume Mascara – I’ve mentioned this mascara before as a favorite and nothing has changed. I have tried other mascaras but continue to go back to this one. It doesn’t clump and my lashes stay up all day.

4. MAC Spirit Satin Lipstick – I love this color lipstick. I know some people are turned off by the smell of MAC lipsticks but I like the smell. The lipstick is a satin finish. It’s smooth and creamy. I’ve swatched the color before. It’s the color on left. If you’re curious the color on the right is MAC’s Viva Glam V.


5. Dancing with the Stars – I’ve been a fan of this show since season one. I was so happy that it returned in September. I was concerned that I wouldn’t like the cast this season as, in my opinion, they did not cast a huge celebrity but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. This year’s cast is quite fun and different. Loving it!

6. The Voice – This is by far my favorite singing competition. All the singers are so good and it’s so hard to see them go when they get cut. Then there’s Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Two of my favorite artists and the coaches to beat. Throughout the seasons we’ve seen changes with the other two coaches. This season those seats are filled by Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams. This cast of judges is amazing. Gwen and Pharrell are really giving Blake and Adam a run for their money. It’s not as easy for Blake and Adam to get the really good singers. Gwen and Pharrell are creating strong teams. If you’ve never watched this show give it a shot. I think you’ll love it like I do.

7. Sperry Top-Sider Angelfish Breton Striped Boat Shoe – I’m late to the Sperry craze. I got my first pair last month and I absolutely love them. They are really comfortable. They’re a bit on the pricey side but are made very well so they’ll last a long time. I’m already looking for my next pair. With so many choices of colors and styles it’s hard to make a choice.

Thanks for stopping by today. I’d love to hear what you were loving last month.

This was not a sponsored post. All the products and shows mentioned are personal favorites of mine and I did not receive anything for mentioning them.

  1. I’ve been wanting to try the BareMinerals new foundation as I’ve used the powder for years. LOVE their product. Have you ever used the powder? If so, how does the new liquid foundation compare in your opinion? Just curious.

    i’m back on The Voice bandwagon…fell off a few seasons back, but I’m glad to rejoin the fun. I love the antics between Adam and Blake…and Gwen, she’s amazing. Enjoying the season so far!
