September 2012 Favourites!

I hope everyone had a fantastic month! I am loving this Fall weather we have been having here in Ontario. Fall is by far my favourite season! This will just be a quick post on a few products I have been loving this month.



bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser - I switched up my skin care recently and have been trying the bareMinerals line. I am in love with this cleanser. I am really big on cleansers that do not foam right now - since I am usually not a fan of the ingredients that make that product foam. This not only cleanses my skin but have dramatically improved the texture of my skin in a way that no other cleanser has before.
bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for Combo Skin - I bought this along with the cleanser. I love this product - it has no scent and is light. However, for a product for oily skin it really didn't help keep my oil at bay during the day. I only use this at night now since it is really moisturizing.
DKNY Be Delicious Purfume - I have been wearing my Taylor Swift perfume foorreeevvverr and felt like it was time for a change. I have always associated this perfume with the fall (perhaps due to the apple relation?) and have seen fantastic reviews on it, so I picked it up at Sephora. I adore the scent and the packaging! A definite winner.
Revlon Colour Stay Whipped Foundation - I saw several rave reviews on this product so I purchased it in August. I adore the consistency and coverage this product gives - plus the lightest shade is actually a fantastic match for my skin tone. Since I am not a foundation girl, I like to mix this with my mattifying moisturizer to create a tinted moisturizer. I still get enough coverage without having to wear a full face of foundation.
MUA Blush in Shade 2 - This purchase is thanks to the wonderful Jayne at Cosmetic Proof for letting me know that MUA had free shipping on awhile back. This was one of the items I picked up and I am loving the consistency and pigmentation. I also have to make a comment that MUA customer service is outstanding! One of my products was out of stock and they kept in touch with me the whole time. While it took a month for me to get my shipment - I didn't even mind because I knew what was going on every step of the way. I am not sure if companies understand that completely. Most times an annoyed customer can be avoided just by being open and communicating with them. So simple yet so over looked.

What are your favourite products from September?

  7. I really like the DKNY Be Delicious fragrance - I have both the original and the Fresh Blossom one :) I've heard some really good thing about the Revlon foundation. I was contemplating buying it while I was in the States but I decided against it considering all the foundation I've bought and still had at home. I'm going to put it on my list of ones to eventually try out though :)
