September Monthly Favorites

30 Sep

Hey there!

My birthday has come and gone, and I’m officially a year older. September is always a weird month for me, because I have to remind myself I have to stop telling people a number I’ve gotten so used to saying for a whole year now. Yet, where would I be without my monthly favorites? I’m always indulging in the items I own, and find my little happy place when I start using them routinely. These next items are no exception to that.

A Thousand Wishes is a very popular fragrance at Bath & Body Works, but I’ve since had to stop purchasing any lotions from there due to skin allergies (go figure). I was happy to learn this scent came in a candle. It’s described as a mixture of champagne, peonies & almonds.

I can’t really say for sure that’s what it smells like, but I do know it has a very light musky scent to it, which is perfect for anyone who loves subtly but doesn’t want a scent to be faded away in the background at the same time. Whether you like strong scents, or light scents, I feel everyone would love this candle, and I highly recommend it!

I swatched both the Matt Kumar and Swag lippies and eye shadows in my July Ipsy Glam Bag review of this year. Since trying them out, I’ve become a huge fan of them. TheBalm Cosmetics and BareMinerals are both high quality cosmetics lines, and the shade selection I own couldn’t have been more tailored to my likes! TheBalm Cosmetics Matt Kumar eye shadow is rich and buttery, and packs a punch, so I always have to be cautious when dabbing my brush into it.

It’s so easy to get carried away with that shade. While the new Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolors by BareMinerals never fully dry into a true matte, they are quite comfortable on the lips. Swag is an everyday shade you can wear no matter the occasion, and it also leaves your lips feeling hydrated after use!

I ran out of my Sephora Water-proof Eye Makeup Remover, so I was able to truly make use of my Klorane Floral Water Make-up Remover, and I absolutely love it! I usually use it just to remove excess eye makeup that my cleanser, and Garnier Micellar water didn’t fully pick up, and it’s been working out wonderfully.

I’m also obsessed with everything L’Oreal this month, so excuse these next brand raves. I’m loving the new Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation, and find myself picking it up more often than my Infallible Pro-Matte. If you haven’t yet seen my video comparing both foundations, see it now here!

You’ll be seeing me talk about these mascaras for the next few months, because they have quickly climbed to my top favorites list. The L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara Primer along with the Voluminous Mascara are two drugstore duos you never want to underestimate.

I didn’t think much of them once I received them in my last Influenster Voxbox, but once I tried them out as instructed, I fell in love. The primer sets the lashes into place, and placing the mascara on top, creates a dramatic effect without having to put on false lashes. Who doesn’t want to save money on lashes? Pick these two up!

Included in my Voxbox, was an eye shadow form the L’Oreal Colour Riche line, in Paris Beach. If you’re looking for a matte, creamy, and pigmented lid base color, this is another one you don’t want to bypass at the drugstore. This shade is unbelievable for being a low-end product.

I even compared it to Urban Decay eye shadows, and was stunned to find this one was more pigmented than some of the UD lighter shades. I have been using this shade as base color ever since purchasing. It’s a beautiful, true cream white shade.

What are some of your September favorites? Thanks for taking the time to read this post, and I’ll see you back here on The Gift of Gab, for my October favorites coming up next month!

L’Oreal Voluminous Voxbox Review + Demo

15 Aug
Hey everyone!
Today’s blog post is all about my L’Oreal Voxbox that I received for FREE thanks to Influenster. I could go in depth about Influenster on this post, but if you’re truly curious to find out how you too can earn a chance to receive your own Voxbox, then check this post out.
I was able to try not just one, but SIX different products by L’Oreal Paris, and was fortunate enough to create a look using all of them for you guys on my YouTube channel! I love when I’m able to demonstrate any product for the first time on my channel, because my audience gets to see how the products perform for themselves before making any type of purchase.
So if you want to know which ones are worth it, and which ones you can skip out on, make sure you watch my demo below. Also subscribe to my YouTube channel for more product demos coming up in the near future. Thanks so much for reading and watching!
