The theme for September was Glamazon! The bag had a fun metallic design.
Everything in my bag for September!
Coastal Scents Elite Bamboo Collection Medium Shadow Brush ($5?). This brush has a bamboo handle and is nice and long. The medium shadow brush is perfect for lid application!
Rodial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic ($6.30). Rodial is a fairly ritzy British brand and I’m really intrigued by this item – a soothing toner with hyaluronic acid, which plumps your skin! This is more of a tonic spray than a toner, which is fantastic, because I love facial sprays and mists (I love toner too!). The sprayer on this one was really aggressive though, hold very far away. It has a mild rose scent, not too strong.
Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme ($10). Whoah, tingly! This has quite a bite, but also has vitamin E, MaxiLip (“stimulates collagen production and hyaluronic acid synthesis”, and Dehydrated Marine Sponge to plump.
Unfortunately the ingredients are really not great (paraben) so I probably wouldn’t try it out again. Oh well, I’ll have to console myself by browsing the holiday collections (yes really – they’ve already been released!).
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (Phd) 5-In-1 Styling Treatment ($7.50) I just got a Living proof product in my Sephora Play! box so I feel like these two subscriptions are really in a lot of competition. It uses 2 patented molecules to shield strands against humidity, smooth, and add-shine instead of weighing it down while adding volume and bounce. Great for my fine hair!
Trestique Mini Highlight Stick in Maldives ($6.48). This cap always throws me off! Trestique caps make it appear as if your product is open and it’s a great trick! This mini highlighter applied just like silk and the light champagne color is gorgeous!
This is a great subtle highlighter for someone with light skin like mine – I would love to see this swatched on dark skin, I think it would be gorgeous.
