September Favorites 2015!

September Faves

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Hope everyone’s weekend was great.

October is practically here so here’s a quick post on items I have been enjoying this month.

Sephora Collection Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush

I have the older model of this brush but I’ve found myself using this practically everyday this past month.  Not sure why I overlooked this brush for a while but I’m happy to have started using it again.  This brush is  bigger than most concealer brushes but I love it for that purpose.  After applying concealer underneath my eyes, this quickly blends everything into place and it doesn’t tug the eye area.

Sonia Kashuk Core Tools Synthetic Buffing Brush 130

Another brush I have used frequently, as you can probably tell from the disappearing letters.  I picked this up at Target and love using this to apply foundation/tinted moisturizer and it’s excellent for buffing out cream blushes or bronzers.

Origins VitaZing SPF15 Energy-boosting Moisturizer with Mangosteen Sheer Tint Release

A sample that came in this year’s Sephora Sun Safety Kit, this moisturizer goes on clear but within a few seconds turns into a tinted moisturizer.  It’s a bit darker than my normal foundations but gives just enough of a tan glow that doesn’t come across as orange or fake.  It gives an, “I’ve been on vacation,” glow without having to leave home and I use the Sonia Kashuk Buffing Brush with this one.

HydroPeptide Power Lift Advanced Ultra-Rich Moisturizer

I picked up a HydroPeptide set at the trade show and this moisturizer has been a pleasant surprise.  The consistency with this one is very thick where I can flip it upside down and it takes a while to move.  Normally, I run away from these types of moisturizers as they are too heavy for my combination skin and cause me to breakout.  So far, this has worked wonderfully for my skin. I only use a pea-sized amount and it glides on my skin, making it feel hydrated and not tight. Surprisingly, it doesn’t feel heavy either.  I use this at night and feel it will be perfect for the cooler weather coming up.

What were your favorite products this month?

  1. I also like Sonia kashuk brushes. The first brush I bought from the brand was their large duo fibre multipurpose brush. I got that over a year ago and I still have it and still doing good. The hydropeptide moisturizer sounds interesting.

    • I had a duo fibre brush from MAC that I lost and therefore I replaced it with this one. It’s not the same of course, but still a great option. 🙂 I do like the moisturizer but if you have oily skin, I’d try to get a sample first. Most moisturizers with this consistency don’t work for oily skin.

      • Yeah creams suit best on dry skin. I have a combination skin too and I like gel formulas. I don’t invest much on brushes since I seldom use it. I have sonia kashuk and real technique.only use them when I’m using foundation which barely happens.
