August/September Favorites!

Hey guys!

August was another one of those months where the end of the month crept up on me, but I am including those favorites in this post as well.

So, in no particular order...

WetnWild Megalast nail polish in On a Trip
If you follow me on Instagram, then you've probably already seen this picture. The color is gorgeous and the formula is perfection. The best part is that this nail polish is only $1.99. I want them all.

Sleek Oh So Special Palette
I got my shipment of Sleek palettes at the end of August (haul post coming, I promise!) and I can honestly say this was the best beauty investment I have ever made. With my Sleek palettes, I couldn't possibly want any more in life. 
This palette, though, in particular has become a staple. I wanted to focus on one palette at a time and figure out new looks but I'm still working on this one. The colors are pigmented, gorgeous, blend easily, and truly enhance my natural beauty. 

I could go on and on... This palette is my one true love.

Sephora Day to Night Wear Eyeliner in Black Flame
I bought this when I just so happened to be at Sephora picking up my birthday gift and saw this for only $2. It is soo amazing! I've never had an eyeliner show up so well on my water line! (I'm too cheap to get an Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner). You can barely tell there's shimmer in this, so it's just a great smooth & pigmented black eyeliner crayon (it's the twisty kind).

American Apparel nail laquer in Passport Blue
I bought this a couple years ago at an American Apparel in Orlando (although I do have one in my hometown). I haven't used it much, and recently I decided I was in the mood for a darker color. I love this so much! The formula is pretty good. Yes, I know my nails are chipped. I will fix them - I just wanted to show the color.

And yes, the color is almost exactly the color of a US passport! (Even more so in real life - the picture is skewed by the sunlight)

Liplicious Cupcakes lipgloss in Pink Chiffon
This is one of those LE lipglosses you can get around the holidays at Bath & Body Works. I got this probably a year or two ago. I have a huge collection of these glosses and this happened to be one of them. 

This is a gorgeous light pink shade with fine glitter. It smells great and just looks really lovely on. I put this in my little wristlet where I stash my university ID and room key, so it's handy to put on throughout the day. Added bonus: it's moisturizing and leaves my lips feeling like I had on chapstick!

Maybelline Perfect Pastels eyeshadow quad in Velvet Crush
This is a quad I was given my bubbe. She never used it that much, but I've gotten some good use out of it! It looks great with my glasses because it really brings out the gorgeous brown in my eyes (rather than the poop brown haha). The colors are not the most pigmented and there is some fallout, but the colors blend beautifully and just look nice when I'm not in the mood to put too much effort into my makeup for the day.

Clinique Beyond Blusher in Peaches
This is just a gorgeous peachy blush I used a lot throughout August. It gives me a nice, natural glow.

ELF eyeshadow quad in Brownstone
These colors aren't shimmery, however they're not completely matte. I used these a lot throughout August. This palette is perfect for a classic and classy neutral eye, especially only at $1! 

Have you guys used any of these products? Loved them?

What are your favorites from the past two months? Let me know in the comments!
