** CeraVe Healing Ointment Full Size $14.63 for 5 oz which if my math is correct makes this sample of 0.085 worth about 35 cents… ok I’m hoping that the rest of this box will make up for this 🙂

** L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum Treatment is $18.97 for 1 oz so this should be easy! But no there is not weight on the sample size so again seeing as it looks about the same as the others we will just guess its about 0.03! Which means this is worth a grand total of 57 cents!

Its that time again… Monthly Favorites Time! 

 

New York Color Liquid Lipshine in Rivington Rose — $2-$4 depending on where you buy it

photo (2)

This is a great neutral mauve-y pink that goes with anything.  And it makes your lips look glossy without being sticky and you can’t beat the price!

e.lf. Studio Contour Palette — $6.00

PicMonkey Collage

This Contour Palette is the bomb dot com!  I absolutely love it.  All of the shades (two bronzer and two highlighters) are pigmented and blend really well.  The highlighters are not super shiny or glittery so if that’s what you like you will not be a fan of these, but if like me you like a little sheen and brightening you will love them.

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara — $ 6.99-7.99 depending where you buy.

cg_clump_crusher_mascara

This is one of those products that I’ve heard people rave about and I just never tried it.  Ulta had a sale on Covergirl so I decided to give this a whirl and I have to say I’m very impressed.  Definitely separates the lashes (no clumps duh!) but it still give volume and length.

theBalm CabanaBoy Blush — $21.00

PicMonkey Collage123

This blush is a dusty rose color with a plum overtone that is perfect for fall!  I think I wore it every day this week.  Also never pay full price for products from theBalm.  Their website has sales all the time and they are also on Hautelook quite a bit.  You might want to also check out your local Kohl’s their products can often be found there as well.

Orgins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores — $25.00

s1375773-main-hero-300

This mask features activated charcoal which acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. It also has White China clay which absorbs environmental toxins, and lecithin dissolves impurities. Lots of fancy talk to say that this mask makes my skin feel amazing.  Very soft and smooth and the areas that get congested with grease and gunk (nose, cheeks and sometimes chin) feel cleaned and refreshed after using this!

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eye Liner in True Teal –$7.99-8.99 Depending on where you buy it

images

I decided to try this eye liner after hearing one of favorite Youtubers Coffee Break with Dani  rave about it earlier this year.  I picked up True Teal for me and Black for my mom.  These eye liners are great for your water and tight line.  For the most part they don’t move and if they do fade I don’t get weird goop in the corner of my eyes like most eyeliners do to me.  When Ulta has a sale on L’oreal I will be picking up a few more of these!

Let me know what you enjoyed in the month of September and what you are looking forward to in October! 

Products I’ve Hit Pan On— e.l.f. Studio Tone Correcting Powder in Cool

83801_complecperfect_zoom

 

I bought this powder at Target about 6 months ago and I used it a few times and didn’t think it was anything special so it was put in the back of the drawer.  For whatever reason about a month ago I pulled it out and used it and asked myself why I ever shoved it in the back of the drawer!  This is a great powder for mattifying and I honestly do think that it does help slightly with color correcting.  After checking the e.l.f. website I realize that there are three different types of this powder.  There is a ‘cool toned powder’ (which is what I have), a ‘warm toned powder’ and a ‘shimmer powder’.

This is what e.l.f. has to say about their powder…

Create a balanced and radiant complexion that is beautiful and healthy. The lightweight formula evens out skin tone and absorbs excess oil, and sheer formula brightens, mattes and neutralizes the skin. The colors are meant to be blended together as the Blue neutralizes orange, the Green neutralizes red, the Pink neutralizes grey and the Yellow brightens and neutralizes red.

As you hit pan on this product it does become difficult to use as it starts to crumple.  I think I will pry the rest of this out of the compact, put it in a old powder foundation container and crush it up to use as a loose powder.  I will be repurchasing this product in the future, but first I want to use up at least one more powder in my collection.

Products Mentioned::

e.l.f. Studio Tone Correcting Powder in Cool— $3.00
