My September Beauty Favorites

Hello once again! I am back, and hopefully for good. A lot of things have happened since the last time I posted. I apologize for my lack of activity, but I was busy moving states and starting Graduate school. During this time, I tried a lot of new beauty products, fell in love with some, hated others, and I am here today to tell you the ones that went straight into my makeup bag. These are my September Beauty Favorites:


In this month’s beauty favorites, there are two Glossier products. The first one, is their Wowder a powder that will cut shine, blur the appearance of pores, set makeup, look like skin. The formula of this powder is amazing, it does not look heavy on the skin and it doesn’t set into your dry lines. As someone with dry skin, powder can look chalky against my foundation and this does not happen with Wowder. They have also managed to perfect the packaging of loose powder. I highly recommend it!


The second product, and one of the most known products by Glossier, is their Cloud Paint aka cream blush. These give the skin the loveliest tint and they look so natural, like the perfect flush after a workout. I have them in two shades: Dusk and Haze. My only con is the packaging. Even though it is ridiculously cute, it’s hard to squeeze the tube just the perfect amount without having too much product come out. You really only need a tiny bit of this.


Primer is one of those products that are highly debated. Some people love them. Some don’t find any use for it. I was highly skeptical of primer and thought that as long as I moisturized I would be fine, but my makeup wasn’t looking good especially after I moved to Oregon where there is a much colder, drier climate than what I was used to. So, I decided to try Too Faced’s Hangover Primer. This goes on sooooo nice on the skin, it feels cooling and fresh, and I have noticed a significant difference in the way my makeup looks. Are there any primers that you love? Leave them in the comments below!


I am sure I am the last one to get on the NARS Sheer Glow boat, but I finally did it. I am sure I watched Zoella rave about this foundation a million times, and I can see now why she did. This foundation has the prettiest finish and I love how buildable it is. I am not a big fan of high-coverage foundation, and I usually go for a natural, dewy look and I can do that with this foundation and a wet beauty blender. The only downside is that the bottle does not come with a pump, you have to buy it separately and that’s just too much trouble.


Last but not least, Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. I love how this makes my lips look and feel. It is not super thick or sticky, I wouldn’t really say it’s an oil either, but it has definitely improved my lips. I usually apply it in the morning when I am getting ready and then wipe it before I put on my lipstick, or if I am not wearing any lipstick I’ll just leave it on. I have the shade Honey, but they have others that I believe are a bit more tinted.

  • Thank @pixibeauty for the most beautiful package ♥️ The #pixibeauty #mattelastliquidlip is one of my favorite #mattelipstick formulas so you have no idea how excited I was when Pixi announced they were releasing new shades 🎉 And I was even MORE excited when this showed up at my door. I already owned the original shades so I gifted the extra ones to my friend (and #skincare queen 👑) @mod.young.
This formula is so lightweight, and not drying, and really, the only #matteliquidlipstick I use anymore. My favorite shade from this new release HAS to be #BerryBoost. The perfect shade for #fall🍁
No se imaginan la felicidad cuando llego este paquetito a mi puerta 😍 Estos labiales líquidos de @pixibeauty son mis favoritos. Vivo enamorada de los seis tonos que lanzaron primero, y ahora han lanzado cinco nuevos tonos más vibrantes y coloridos.
  • Please ignore the disgusting stage of my #glossier #cloudpaints 🙈 But these are my go-to cream blushes (pretty much all the ones I own). I find that cream blushes can give the most natural, flushed look and I love that. The #cloudpaint is the one I have been using the longest but I think the @flowerbeauty #blushbomb color drops are VERY similar (and MORE affordable). My newest addition is the #lilahbeauty divine duo - again, gorgeous shade and amazing formula.
Do you like a cream blush? Or do you prefer a powder blush?
Hablemos de rubores en crema! Me parece que en esta presentación el rubor se puede ver tan natural, así como pretendiendo que hicimos ejercicio pero llevamos tres horas en el sofá. Así. Estos son mis favoritos (todos los que tengo). Si buscan una opción económica les recomiendo el de Flower Beauty. Muy similar al de glossier.

  • Showing you the various stages of this look from the final outcome to my very, very naked face from a couple of weeks ago. This week has been a test to my #confidence. I got a stye(eyelid pimple) on my left eye and I looked like I had been punched (according to me). This meant I couldn’t wear ANY eye makeup. While I preach that #beauty is not dependent on #makeup, I still felt very insecure not being able to put on mascara or eyeliner. We get used to seeing ourselves in a certain way, and when we don’t look like what we’re used to, it’s not necessarily a bad thing - but just different. In my mind, if I can see a “flaw,” everyone else can see it too. When the reality is they’re probably not even paying attention. •
Do you also get up close and personal with your mirror and wonder if others can see that tiny little mark on your cheek?
Mostrándoles este look de hace un par de semanas desde el acabado hasta mi carita bien desnuda. Esta semana me ha salido un orzuelo en el párpado izquierdo lo que significó que no me podía poner #maquillaje en los ojos. Estando acostumbrada a verme CON maquillaje, fue muy extraño verme sin. Cuando estoy en la casa sin planes de ir a ningún lado, nunca me maquillo. Pero cuando voy a la universidad si. Y fue difícil. Porque pensaba que todo el mundo se iba a dar cuenta cuando la realidad es que probablemente ni siquiera estén prestando atención.
  • Nothing like #TextureTuesday and dipping into a brand new pot of @farmacybeauty #GreenClean. I had only tried one other balm before this one - and it hadn’t really been an enjoyable experience. I then got a mini somewhere and I am now the proud mother of this baby.
I love how well this removes my makeup. It is so effective and I find that I don’t have to use a lot of product. Usually I scoop some out and then start grabbing it with my fingers, but I always have some left over. If you’re in the market for a cleanser, I definitely recommend you give this one a chance. It won’t disappoint you!
Como les mostré en mis historias, he empezado un tarro nuevo de este bálsamo para desmaquillarse de #farmacybeauty. Es súper efectivo en remover maquillaje e impurezas de la piel. No me reseca la piel para nada. Súper recomendado!
  • Happy #MACMonday featuring my two newest addition to my humble @maccosmetics collection. I picked up two shades of their new #MACPowderKiss formula - Shocking Revelation (the more red/berry), and Burning Love (the deeper shade). I have yet to use them on my lips 👄 but I am very impressed by the formula! Have you tried these yet?
Feliz Lunes de #MACCosmetics ♥️Les presento las últimas adiciones a mi humilde colección. Dos labiales de su nueva fórmula #PowderKiss en Shocking Revelation y Burning Love. Ya los probaron?
  • Nothing like having enough time to do a full face of makeup. Honestly, my most relaxing time is picking out what I’m going to use, playing some YouTube, and doing my makeup. Even when I don’t have plans of going anywhere 🙈 there are about 13 products here. How many are there in your #fullfacemakeup routine!?
Nada como tener el tiempo para jugar con todo esto. Para mi no hay nada más relajante que escoger que voy a usar, poner YouTube, y maquillarme. Aún cuando no voy para ninguna parte 🙈 aquí hay más o menos 13 productos. Cuantos hay en su rutina?
