September Beauty & Lifestyle Favorites!

September has felt like a really long month for me. School and reading has taken over my life. I've been spending any of my free time watching Asian dramas. I haven't had much time to discover many beauty products because I've been wearing the same makeup almost everyday. Here are my September favorites.

Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Adrienne 
This lipstick is probably the most luxurious lipstick purchase I've ever made. I 100% blame Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup for this purchase. It's basically the more sophisticated version of MAC Patisserie. While Patisserie is more pink under toned,  Adrienne is has a peach undertone. It's a perfect everyday nude lipstick. I would say that the shade would be in between MAC Patisserie and Velvet Teddy because it's similar to Patisserie but it more warm toned but it's not as dark as Velvet Teddy. The formula is creamy but sheer. I find that it wears well on me. The only issue I have with it is that it has a light floral scent. It's not overpowering but no one mentions that this lipstick has a scent. It can be a little drying on the lips too. If you love MAC Patisserie but want to go a step up you should definitely try Adrienne. This is a pricey lipstick, but I justified it because it's a shade that I can wear for any occasion.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Exposed 
I basically wear this blush every single day because it's easy. You can just slap it on even when you're in a hurry and it looks good. It's the perfect neutral blush. It's not too brown and not too pink. It's matte and lasts all day. It's the perfect blush for people who are afraid of blush. It's also great when you need a little wash of color so that you don't pale like a ghost. It's very pigmented so you only need a tiny amount. I think this blush is worth the price and it's a shade that everyone should have in their collection.

Lifestyle Favorites

TV Shows

She Was Pretty Yes, I'm continuing the theme of being obsessed with k-dramas. I started watching it because the plot sounded interesting and it was all over tumblr. I just hate that I have to wait for new episodes ever week. Choi Siwon's character is my favorite. He's the reason I keep watching it. The actual story is giving me anxiety. Kim Hye Jin's first love Ji Seoung Jun doesn't know that she's his childhood best friend because she made her best friend, Min Ha Ri pretend to be her because she doesn't think that she's pretty anymore and she didn't want to deceive his image of her. But then he ends up being her boss. He's starting to notice that her behaviour is similar to the his first love and the girl that he thinks is Hye Jin has the complete opposite personality as the Hye Jin he knew. So he's confused. And then, in yesterday's episode (episode 6) Ha Ri did something that basically violates the best friend/girl code.

On the Wings of Love
I found out about this show on tumblr. It's a filipino teleserye. It's very hard to find the episodes with english subtitles and I have to wait a long time for them. Anyways, the story is about a girl named Leah who goes from the Philippines to San Francisco. When her visa is about to expire she has a green-card marriage to Clark, her ex-boyfriend's cousin. At first Leah and Clark hate each other but then they become friends and start to develop feelings for each other. I ship Leah and Clark so much. The story is realistic because everything that happens is something that can actually occur in daily life. They said it would be a light series. They lied! Every episode breaks my heart into a million pieces for these two characters. P.S. Jigs is the most annoying character ever written! Every time he speaks I'm annoyed with him.

Per te ci sarĂ² - Il Volo (probably the best song they've ever sung)
TornerĂ  L'Amore - Il Volo (simply a beautiful song)
Il Volo released a new album at the end of the most, well three versions of it (Italian, Spanish and international versions), which basically means I have three times the songs to be obsessed with. Any song that they sing sounds amazing. I really want to see them in concert.

Radio - CNBLUE It's Korean. I don't understand most of the words but their sound is amazing and Jong-hyun is probably the best guitar player I've ever heard. It also helps that all four guys are really good looking.

Butternut Squash and Pancetta Penne Gennaro Contaldo is one of the most entertaining people to watch. His recipes are so simple but extremely delicious.  I love pasta, I love pancetta and I enjoy butternut squash.This pasta dish is one of the best things I ever ate. I can't even describe how good it is. All I know is that you NEED to try it.

Sincerely, JoJo. ♥
