September 2015 Makeup Favorites

Monthly Favorites: September 2015

These days our Instagram feeds are full of plum lipsticks, cranberry eyeshadows and pumpink spice lattes, which only means one thing: fall is officially here! And my September Makeup Favorites are going to remind you once more…

Maybelline Color Tattoo – Metallic Pomegranate

This plummy cream eyeshadow by Maybelline just screams fall to me. I apply it all over the mobile lid with my finger and blend the edges with a brush. 1, 2… ready!

Essence I Love Nude Eyeshadow – Sweet Like Chocolate

For my daytime looks this past month I’ve been mainly rotating Metallic Pomegranate and this little gem by Essence. It’s one of those eyeshadows you can’t go wrong with: it looks great paired with any lip color and is super easy to apply.

Maybelline SuperStay 14HR Lasting Chestnut Essence I Love Nudes Sweet Like Chocolate Hot ScorchEssence Long-Lasting Eye Pencil – Hot Scorch

I’ve been wearing this coppery bronze pencil on my lower lash line almost every single day. The shade is universally flattering and the lasting power rather impressive for an eyeliner under 2 euro.

Maybelline SuperStay 14HR – Lasting Chestnut

My most worn look of the month (pictured on the left) has definitely been: Sweet Like Chocolate and Scorch on the eyes paired with this brown lipstick on the lips. If you want to know more about it, go check out my full review.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – Berry

This is usually my lip option whenever I sport Metallic Pomegranate on the lids. I’ve already mentioned it in my lip care routine as it is the best tinted lip balm I’ve ever used: it is intensely moisturizing and very long-lasting for this type of product.

Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation – Golden Light

I mainly use this as a setting powder by dusting it on top of foundation with a fluffy brush. It’s great at mattifying my skin, but doesn’t look cakey or flat at all. Whenever I don’t wear liquid foundation, I press it on with the included sponge to get the most coverage (which is still light to medium). The cocoa powder it contains not only gives it a mouth-watering smell, but is also supposed to have an antioxidant action.

Now it’s your turn: what have you guys been loving over the past month?

      You so need to! This one (which I think is called Pomegranate Punk in the States), along with Creamy Beige and Bad to the Bronze are my favorite shades!

    I like Maybelline lipstick and the eye shadow, they are great! Lip treatment looks so pretty, it has been on my wishlist for so long. Dark lips, dark nails and light base products… That’s what I’ve been loving xx

      I picked it up while I was in Spain, I couldn’t find it in Italy either. If you ever place an order on feel unique, remember it’s available there…

    I just saw a display of the Essence I Love Nude collection last week at Ulta, too bad I didn’t pay attention to the eyeshadows! I was more attracted to the lipsticks and nail polishes.
    Here it’s still 27-28 degrees celsius every day, so I’m mostly still wearing my summer corals, except when I want to test some new makeup I bought for fall!

    Wow, that maybelline lipstick is such a stunning colour! I love the maybelline tatoo as well. Wish we got those colours in NZ because that pomegranate colour is gorgeous.

    Metallic Pomegranate is my favourite for autumn. I need to try bronzers from Too Faced, thinking of buying the bronzers palette to see all shades 🙂
