My September beauty routine consisted of lots of natural pink colors and products to make my complexion look nice and bright. I bought a new, very colorful eye shadow palette (review coming soon), so I wanted neutral cheeks and lips to pair the bright shadows with. I’ve had two of these products for awhile and one of them is a brand new one that arrived at the perfect time. My three September Beauty Favorites were Sephora’s Colorful Blush in 08 Rose Petal, BECCA’s Under Eye Brightening Corrector, and Buxom’s Full-Bodied Lipstick in Mistress.
I’ve obviously had Sephora’s Colorful Blush in Rose Petal for awhile. It’s one of my favorite blush colors but it’s been discontinued so I’m hesitant to use it all up. I had my makeup done at Sephora a couple of years ago and the girl used this blush and I’ve been in love ever since. It’s such a pretty medium pink shade that goes with any look. While I love my bright pink blushes, this is a much more wearable shade that I can wear on any given day. It’s not easy to go overboard with this color since it’s such a soft neutral pink. The formula is also really nice. It isn’t powdery and it lasts all day on me. I will be so sad when I finally use this all up.
BECCA’s Under Eye Brightening Corrector is a new product for me (I received it in the set I reviewed here). I had been thinking about purchasing it when Ulta released a set with a deluxe mini. I’m so happy I got this when I did and I can easily see me using it all and repurchasing the full size. This under eye brightener is super light and creamy unlike a lot of concealers that are thick and cakey. I’ve had quite a few early mornings this month and this product really brightens under my eyes and makes it look like I got more rest than I did. I like to apply it in a triangle shape under my eyes and then put my bb cream on over it. It reflects just enough light without making it seem like I’m wearing a lot of concealer.
Buxom’s Full-Bodied Lipstick in Mistress is a color that I initially received in one of Sephora’s promos. I liked it so much that I used the same promo code a few times so I could stock up (see my reviews here and here). This is a great medium pink shade that adds just enough color. I consider it a replacement for a pinky-nude when I want a little more color but still want a natural look. The formula feels nice on and it lasts for several hours. Mistress pairs perfectly with smoky, colorful, or natural eye looks and it matches Rose Petal really well.
My September Beauty Favorites aren’t as dramatic or exciting as some of my previous monthly favorites, but they are all products that I love and that do their job well. Sephora’s Colorful Blush in Rose Petal is the perfect everyday, I-don’t-want-to-think-about-what-blush-to-wear shade and I really like the formula. BECCA’s Under Eye Brightening Corrector does its job really well and I love how light and creamy it is. Buxom’s Full-Bodied Lipstick in Mistress is a great medium pink shade that is extremely versatile. I’ve been consistently happy with these products and I’m so glad I found them.
