Favorites/Most used for August and September

Hi girlies!

I'm happy to share with you for the first time my favorites/most used products in August and September :)

First my favorite foundation not only for the month of September, but pretty much ever since I got it in January is NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. My shade is Barcelona and I love the coverage, it feels light and makes my skin look and feel good.

Also from  NARS is the Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, which has become my HG eyeshadow base, it's light, it has no tint and best of all it doesn't crease, which is fabulous for my forever creasing eyelids.

My face powder of choice these past couple of months is MAC's Mineralize SkinFinish Natural (Medium Plus) It's light and it looks very natural

Most used highlighter is MAC MSF Soft and Gentle

Most used blushes! All from MAC
Bottom left: Peaches/Top: Style/Bottom Right: Improvise Mineralize Blush

I wore each on their own and combined them as well, the combinations I used the most were Peaches w/ Improvise (very lightly on top) or Peaches w/Style on top.

Moving on to most used eyeshadows:
From the Urban Decay Vegan Palette I used the most Twice Baked, Smog and Half Baked, I absolutely love these 3 shades.

This next eyeshadow quad is the reason why I started loving bronze shades, it's L'oreal Bronzes quad.
I specially use the shades on the right marked with numbers 1 and 4, specially the top right one (#1) it's a gorgeous bronzed champagne.

Another eyeshadow set that I have used almost every other day is Physician's Formula Baked Eyeshadow Trio "Baked Sands"

I love it so much I got a backup right away after I dropped my first one and one of the domes broke off :( (right) you can also see I've used it so much they're not quite domes no more. 
Last eyeshadow set I've been using a lot August and September is Avon's  8-in-1 palette in Neutral Tones. I've used the 3rd and 4th shade from the left the most.

I've been enjoying using L'oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense eyeliner, specially to do a winged look.
For lips, I really didn't use lipsticks or lip-glosses, felt kinda lazy really, so I've been using EOS lip-balm thingy, I got the yellow one first which I don't remember the name, but I didn't like the smell so much, the Summer Fruit one, on the other hand I love how it smells and makes my lips feel nice and soft.

Lastly, my favorite hand/body lotion is CVS brand Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer, at first I got the travel size to try it out, and I like it so much I got the full size one.

I like this one a lot better than the Vaseline version, which the CVS brand is comparable to, they both leave my skin feeling soft, but the smell is a bit different, the CVS one smells more like coconut, and the Vaseline one seems to have an added fragrance, which I can't quite describe it, didn't like it that much. 

Whoa that was a lot of products! 
Hope you all have a wonderful week! I'm currently trying to fight a cold so I'm having some home made soup :)
