September Favorites

Hello, beauty freaks! I am back with my September Favorites! Let's get started.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Liner in 'Nude'

Yes, I realize how late I am on this trend! When I have only had a few hours of sleep, putting this color on my waterline really helps me look more awake and not like I want to shoot myself. I don't have one bad thing to say about the quality of these eyeliners. They glide on my waterline, they last through my eight-hour school day,  they come in so many beautiful colors, and they are so cheap. You've passed the test, Rimmel!

Putting Urban Decay's 'Darkhorse' eye shadow in my Outer - V

To be honest, this color used to scare the living crap out of me! I would use too much of it and it would always end up looking so harsh on my eyes! Recently, I have just been barely tapping my brush into it and using it in my outer v. I'm kicking myself for not experimenting with this color more before! This color adds so much dimension to my eye looks. I'm obsessed!

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in 'Sunny' 

Once again, I know I am so late with this trend! I freaking adore this two dollar bronzer! Since this bronzer is a pretty light tone, I would say that it is good for anyone with light skin to anyone with tan skin. If you are dark chocolate, I don't think this would show up too much on you, unfortunately. However, I'm fairly tan and this comes up very natural on my skin. That's my favorite thing about it though: it's hard to go overboard with it. I don't have to worry about how much product i'm picking up with my brush. Another great thing about this bronzer is that it's build-able. So, if I want to look even more bronzed-goddessy, I can do that. As for the quality of the powder, it's very smooth and silky. I just love this and believe it is worth much more than 2 dollars.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

This four-dollar masque is formulated for acne prone and oily skin. I've been religiously using this throughout the month. I don't want to get into too many details about the product in this post because I am going to be doing a full review on the masque, in the near future. I'm just going to give you a little sneak peak and say that I freaking love this! Stay tuned for my review on it!

Bath and Body Works 'Velvet Sugar' Fragrance Mist 

I want to give Giselle a shout out for getting this for me for my birthday last year! I finally started using this bad boy and I am loving it! This is one of Bath and Body Works's newer scents in their line. Velvet Sugar is one of those very sugary, sweet, bold scents. I know that some people hate really sugary scents, but I personally am in love with this scent! Another bonus is that I get so many compliments on how I smell when I wear this. Thanks for hooking it up, Giselle! ;)

Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Polish in 'On A Trip'

The color of this polish is freaking beautiful! You know i'm obsessed when I have been repeatedly applying this all month. I usually like to change colors every time, so this is a pretty big deal for me! The quality of these polishes are very great for the price!

Thanks for reading, yo! See you next Wednesday!

Liebster Award!!

Two months later, I am finally doing this post! Thank you so much, Giselle, for nominating me and i'm so sorry that I took so long to do this! If you guys haven't seen her book blog, I really suggest you go check it out! It's fucking amazing and really underrated, in my opinion.

Giselle's Questions:

1. What made you start blogging? Did anyone inspire you? If so who and how?
Honestly, Giselle inspired me. She basically persuaded me into it (lol). We started blogging around the same time. (If you guys didn't know, we have been friends since Kinder and then we became best friends in the 7th grade.) If it wasn't for her, I don't think I would have had a blog or ever even considered doing this. So, thank you, Giselle! :)

2. What is your dream cast for your favorite book?
Sutter from A Spectacular Now, Hassan from An Abundance of Katherines and Alaska from Looking For Alaska

3. Top played song on your iPod?
It is currently "One" by Ed Sheeran. That will change in a few days or so though.

4. What book character would you be friends with and why?
I would choose Sutter from The Spectacular Now. He's just fucking perfect in every way possible. Stop what you are doing (after reading this post of course lol) and go read this book! Don't watch the movie because it does not compare to the greatness of the book.

5. What book can you keep re-reading and always love? Why?
The Tail of Emily Windsnap by Liz Kessler was my childhood favorite book! It makes me think of the good, old days when I re-read it! It makes me happy!

6. Strange reading habits?
I have to lie down while reading. I don't know why.

7. If you could live in any time period, what would it be and why?
I would probably live in the 80's. I feel like that's such a common answer, but that time period was just iconic, man. I, personally, would also enjoy it because technology wasn't as advanced during that time. That means you would actually have to go make the effort to really talk to someone, by going to see them or calling them. I just feel like it was more real during those days.

8. Name a quote that describes you best?
"So this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be."

9. What book made you cry the most and why?
Looking for Alaska by made me cry a lot! If I were to say why, it would spoil the whole ending so i'm just going to keep that part of the question to myself.

10. Favorite Disney Movie?
Maleficent! I actually saw this with Giselle and we both fell in love with it! :)

11. Coffee or tea?
Coffee, all the way!

11 Random Facts About Myself:
1. I play the piano!
2. Eye shadow is my favorite beauty item. ever.
3. If you make me laugh a lot and you are sweet, you're basically mine. Run. Now.
4. I fucking love Mexican food.
5. Junior year is kicking my ass.
6. My best friends are Giselle, Amy, and Karina. They keep me as sane as I can possibly be!
7. I watch a lot of beauty gurus on YouTube! My favorites are: EmilyNoel83, KendallRae, Sarah Rae Vargas, Rachhloves, and Tati.
8. I'm either really outgoing and psycho or really fucking awkward. There's no in between for me and it kind of sucks..
9. My favorite actress is Melissa Mcarthy.
10. I'm really impatient. It's a problem.
11. My favorite TV character is Red from Orange is the New Black. She is my spirit animal!

Thanks again for nominating me, Giselle! :)
