September Loves

I know I'm pretty late posting this, but when am I ever on time for anything?

Beauty Loves:

Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara
This gives me tons of volume and length.

Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect
This comes as another recommendation from Liz, who I realize is pretty much my life's Yoda.

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist in Moonlight Path
Fragrance often goes forgotten on my blog, but it's about time I mention this one.  Proper perfumes can be a bit heavy for me during the summer, and I've been turning to Moonlight Path pretty much every day since receiving it in an Influenster Spring Beauty voxbox.

Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
My ex-roommate and close friend Ashlee forgot her bottle of this in my guest room during her visit this past May, and my hair's been loving it all summer.  In addition to its strengthening properties, it's also great in terms of managing frizz.

Rando Loves:

Red Baron Four Cheese Super Slices
I know it's disgusting, but I've been pretty much living off of these.  The best frozen pizza in the world, it's better than a whole lot of "real" pizza.

Good Time by Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen
This song is just freaking fun.  Don't judge if you see me rocking out to this in my car.

This show is completely hilar.  I love that MTV has every episode online.  Put on your jammies and watch it all weekend.

My favorite YouTuber this month is RachhLoves, who I can't believe I'd never heard of until recently.

Personal tidbit:
Last month, I mentioned that this semester I'd be writing for my college newspaper.  Well, this week I made the front page (below the fold, but still the front page).  I've included the PDF, in case anyone cares to read my article "Murdered by Makeup?" (continued on Page 2) which is about cruelty-free beauty and includes my interview with the lovely (and vegan) Tashina Combs of Logical Harmony:

What do you think of my September loves?  What products did you love in September?

NARS Andy Warhol Sephora Makeover

This afternoon, Bre and I went to Sephora for free NARS makeovers from her friend Jessica.  The Andy Warhol collection is absolutely beautiful, and the palettes' mirrors are cooly inscribed with Warhol quotes.  They disappointingly don't have one with my favorite Warhol quote: "Don't pay attention to what they write about you; just measure it in inches."

Of the three looks on the display, Bre chose the neutral smokey eye and I, of course, chose the crazy colorful drag look, which speaks volumes about our personalities.  I love Jessica's interpretation of the look, featuring NARS Foreplay cheek palette and Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Hollywoodlawn (over a red lip pencil.)
Although it definitely isn't something I'd wear in real life, I can see myself pairing the glossy red lips with just mascara, and I'd rock the heck out of the eye look with a nude lip.

What do you think of our makeovers?  Of the NARS Andy Warhol collection?


P.S. In an exercise of enormous self control, we managed to leave Sephora without buying a single thing.

Collective Drugstore Haul: Walgreens & CVS

I've gone to a couple of the Walgreens' in my area lately, in search of the elusive e.l.f. Villainous Villains collection.  I sadly haven't been able to find it anywhere, but I did stumble upon the Fergie for Wet n Wild collection, which happens to be kind of fantastic.  I picked up the nail color in Going Platinum and the Glamour-Eyes Eye Kit.

From a different Walgreens, I got Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana (which I plan on using as a highlight), WnW Lipstick in 522a Dark Wine, WnW eyeshadow trio in I'm Getting Sunburned, Revlon Moon Candy Nail Art in Milky Way & Orbit, and e.l.f. Super Glossy Lip Collection.

From CVS, I picked up Moroccan Curling Perfection Defining Cream, Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum, Revlon ColorStay Lipliner in Plum, Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in Rich Raspberry & Bare Bones, and Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup in Sand Beige (which I hope turns out to be my right color).

What do you think of my haul?  Do you have/want any of these products?


P.S. Walgreens seems to have restocked the 8 pan Wet n Wild Color Icon Palettes, so I highly suggest picking up at least one all three of these immeds.
