September Favorites!

September means back to school. Back to school means early mornings and lack of sleep. This month my favorites are all about looking alive and awake. 

 You obviously want your eyes to look bright and awake even though you're tired. Right? I've been loving the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in the shade Radiant to brighten my under eye area. It covers dark circles. Mine aren't bad but this gets the job done. It also doubles as a highlighter so it saves time in the morning. Then, to make my eyes look even more awake I apply the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal eyeliner in nude on my water line. I love it because once it's there it's not moving. It lasts all day and doesn't smudge. 

NARS orgasm blush / my attempt at a swatch
For blush I've been using my all time favorite blush NARS orgasm. It's a peachy pink with gold shimmer. It adds a healthy glow to my cheeks and also helps with the whole looking awake thing. I use it to much and I'm surprised that I haven't hit pan on it.

For lips I've been loving lip balms that double as MLBB shades. The covergirl lip smoochies in #luv u is a perfect MLBB shade for me. It's not the most moisturizing but it has good color pay off. I can just throw it in my bag and not worry about it. I can reapply it all day without looking in a mirror. I've also been obsessed with the Dior Addict Lip Glow. It's quite pricey and I could kick myself for loving it so much. (**cough cough MeghanRosette made me buy it cough cough**) It's meant to enhance your natural lip color while being moisturizing on your lips. It turns into a really pretty MLBB pink shade on my lips and I love it so much! It smells and tastes like mint. It's actually quite moisturizing. Again I can put it on without a mirror and carry it with me all day. When I get home from school I like to take my makeup off as fast as possible. I've been loving the MAC cleanse off oil to take off all my make up. It's really easy to use and gets rid of everything including my waterproof mascara and eyeliner.
