Things I’ve Bought Lately Part 2

Hello everyone!

This is part two of my blog posts showing what I’ve been buying lately. This post will focus on all the smaller things I’ve bought over time, rather than all at once like in Part 1.

I had a coupon for Wet & Wild products ones day, so I finally decided to try one of their famous Color Icon Palettes.

WWCI 1WWCI 2

This is in the shade selection “Walking on Eggshells,” and I have to say, the formula of these shadows is really good! Especially because they’re super affordable even without coupons.

The next things I bought were some new sunscreens to try!

Parasola and Shiseido UV

I bought the Naris Up Parasola Essence in UV Cut Gel and the Shiseido Q10 BG Mineral Water UV Essence. I’ve already talked about one of them in my June favorites, and I’ve since tried the other as well. I like both quite a lot!

The last few things I bought were two items from NYX!

NYX 1

I had lost my eyeshadow primer at my boyfriend’s house somehow, and I really needed one because my eyelids get super oily and eyeshadow creases very easily. Since I didn’t want to pay for a new tube of the Urban Decay primer that I lost just yet (I’m hoping he’ll find it soon, it was practically brand new!), I decided to try the NXY Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer. It’s actually quite good!

NYX 2

I also picked up a Soft Matte Lip Cream in the Shade Prague, which I’ve had my eye on since these lip creams were released! This shade is so beautiful and perfect for fall!

NYX 3

So that’s all the stuff I’ve picked up lately! I bought quite a bit, lol. What have you been buying lately? Let me know in the comments!

 

September 2015 Favorites

Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to tell you what my favorites have been for the past month! Time really has been flying by, haha. I feel like it was just August and now it’s October?!?! What happened?

September 2015 Favorites

Anyways, on to the favorites!

Beauty Favorites:

My first favorite this month are these brushes from Cala!

Cala Brushes 2

I have a whole review I did on them, so I’m not going to go into much detail here, but let’s just say I was extremely impressed with the quality of these brushes for the price! I’ve been using them almost every day since I got them, so when I can I’m going to stock up on some more!

My next beauty favorites are these two lipsticks.

Pony and Clinique lipsticks

One is the Pony X Memebox Blossom Lipstick in #2 Spring Romance, which I did a review of here. The other is the Clinique Almost Lipstick in the shade Black Honey. I’ve been really liking the dark, red toned lips lately (even though it still feels like summer where I live), and these two are just perfect for fall! I can’t stop wearing them!

The next favorite I have for you today is the NYX Wonder Pencil in the shade WP01 Light.

NYX Wonder Pencil

Now, NYX markets this as something that you can use all over the face in various ways, but I only bought it to use it on my waterline. I was always curious if using a nude/flesh toned pencil on the lower waterline would make a difference in how my eyes looked when I was having really bad allergy days, and I’m happy to say that it does! I was really impressed with the performance as well, since it lasted almost the whole day on my waterline. Now I feel like I look less scary when my allergies get really bad, haha.

My last beauty favorite is actually an eyeshadow from a gift with purchase palette from Clinique.

Clinique Lucky Penny

It’s the shade Lucky Penny (top left), and I feel like it’s perfect for fall! I’ve also been wearing similar shades to this the whole month as well, so I’ve been really loving the warm shimmery shades lately! And I hadn’t used this palette in a while, so I forgot just how much I loved it! The quality of Clinique’s eyeshadows are great, so if this is available as a single shadow, I’d highly recommend swatching it to see for yourself!

Non-Beauty Favorites:

My non-beauty favorite for this month is Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer!

AC: HHD

It released the 25th, and I have been playing it constantly! I literally have to force myself to stop playing so that I can eat, haha. I’ve been a fan of the Animal Crossing series since the first one released here in the states, so I was really excited to try a new type of game! This one focuses on the design and landscaping aspect, so if that was your favorite part of the main series games, I highly recommend this!

That’s it for my favorites this month! What have you been loving? Let me know in the comments!
