September Beauty Favorites

Another month ended, another set of favorites! This month contains the usual beauty suspects, some haircare, and a one "Faith should have bought this years ago" product. Be sure to leave your favorites from this month in the comments below!

Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner: These are my first ever Bumble & Bumble products and I'm in love! They are sulphate free and smell heavenly. Now onto how they work...they aren't a super deep clean but they leave my fine (but thick) hair nice and smooth but never greasy. I can have second (or third) day hair easily while using these and only need minimal dry shampoo. Definitely an A+ for me.

NARS Audacious Lipstick, 'Fanny': Yes, another NARS product in my monthly favorites. Can you tell I'm a total NARS junkie? Whenever the brand releases a new product I instantly listen up. Between the insane color range and sleeker than sleek packaging, the Audacious line hits it out of the park. The lipsticks are super pigmented, glide on like a dream, and in my opinion don't need a liner. Not only did I snag 'Fanny', I also bought 'Charlotte'. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills, Brow Wiz: I won't go on too much about this product since I dedicated a full blog post (check it out HERE) to it a few weeks back. However, it is still top on my list. The tiny nib does a fantastic job creating the most natural looking brows. 

Lancôme Eyelash Curler*: Like I noted in THIS post, I have always used a cheap pair of drugstore eyelash curlers. When I received this Lancôme version, I realized that the higher end option did make a difference. I found that the opening on the Lancôme version was much different than my drugstore buys and gave a much better curl. 

Tweezerman Tweezers: Cue second comment about how Faith always snagged her beauty "tools" from the cheap section. I always purchased the under five dollar pair of tweezers at Target; and after the last time I destroyed the skin around my eyebrows trying to get hairs decided I needed to upgrade.  I picked up the "travel" size of the Tweezerman tweezers on an after work beauty run a few weeks back. Seeing as they do exactly the same thing as the regular sized ones for a much better price point I couldn't be happier. 

Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve*: I am the worst at remembering to moisturize areas other than my face (I am totally religious about moisturizing my face morning and night) so I have been making an effort to do better. After receiving the Kiehl's Hand Salve I have been keeping it by my bed to try to help me remember to use it more often. The formula is fantastic (thick and rich) and doesn't leave me feeling sticky at all. Upon applying it creates a "glove-like" protective barrier to help keep moisture in.
