♥ OPI RapiDry Topcoat -- Thanks to the super sweet Kalmo for giving this to me! I love using my new OPI topcoat because it really dries super fast. And being the impatient person that I am, I tend to smudge my newly painted polish easily, this top coat on the other hand dries super fast and protects my nail polish from smudging!
♥ OPI Pink Flamenco -- This cute mini bottle of OPI is from the Senoritas collection Kalmo sent me :) I love this color on me, super bright hot pink!
♥ Orly Poison Apple -- A very pretty shade of red, perfect for the fall :) This is also my first time using Orly nail polishes, and I like it so far! Goes on really smoothly, and Poison Apple is so pigmented, one coat could do the job!
♥ Wet n' Wild Gold Mine -- Thanks to the wonderful Nic for sending me this in her prize package :) This is a shimmery shade of gold color. I wore it this past Saturday to my school's football game, because one of our school colors is GOLD :) I felt so school spirited, hehe. Too bad we lost the game! :p
♥ Essie Sensitivity Base Coat -- The basecoat that I am currently using for all my weekly manicures.
♥ Softlips Lipbalms -- I love Softlips lipbalms, especially since they come in this super thin and slick packaging, and they have tons of yummy flavors to choose from. Best of yet, most of their lipbalms contain an SPF of 20. The ones I used the most last month was vanilla and honeydew flavored. Applying an SPF lipbalm is a must in my everyday makeup routine, someitmes I just apply my Softlips lipbalms and go w/out any lipglosses or lipsticks.
♥ Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 -- I have been neglecting my BB creams and foundation in September, and have been using this tinted moisturizer every day. I love how light and easy it is to apply TM. My skin has been really good to me recently, smoother, less breakouts, less oily, and less visible acne scars (fingers crossed that it'll keep up being good :p), so I didn't feel the need to cover it up with heavy foundations.
♥ CoverBlend Multi-Function Concealer SPF 15 -- It doesn't crease under my eyes and has pretty smooth and good coverage. I love it! Thanks Kalmo <3
♥ ghd Fat Hair Lotion For All Over Volume -- I originally blogged about it here about how I received a sample from Sephora and loved the result. I purchased a full bottle of it during the summer but haven't been using it much because I haven't been blow drying my hair. Recently the weather turned colder, and being the night owl that I am, sometimes I didn't get to shower and wash my hair until the wee hours in the morning, and by that time I already don't feel like spending more time blow drying my hair. But sleeping with wet hair on a cold night is not fun! So for the past week or so, I've been religiously blow drying my hair and using my Fat Hair Lotion again. It does a good job keeping my hair protected, soft and volumized. I was also hoping that knowing that I have to spend extra effort blow drying my hair will make me want to go shower earlier and sleep earlier, but I guess I still like to be a night owl...:p
♥ Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer Serum -- Truly a cocktail for the skin. It makes my skin feel so smooth! I actually look forward to using this product everyday because of how good it feels.
♥ Paul & Joe Whitening Serum -- Even though I've only been using this product for about 5 days, I think it's working already! My acne scars have been looking slightly fainter these days, and I love it! I love how light the texture feels, and how it smells yummy like orange creme :) I'll keep using this and report back on how well it works :) Thanks so much May!!!
So these are the products that I've been using and loved in the month of September. What about your favorite products? :)
Last week was my best friend/college roommate's birthday, I sent her a love package filled with her favorite chocolates and candies, and also made these for her:
A chocolate cake (her favorite) charm :)
