Throwback Thursday: Favorites from September

It’s time for Throwback Thursday, where I take a look back my favorites from years past. This time, I’m going back to my favorites from September 2014, 2013, and 2012.


In September 2014, I liked:

Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation

I can’t believe I’ve never done a review on this foundation, considering it was my go-to for several years! I liked how this foundation applied and how it looked on my skin. I really like that this comes in a squeeze tube. It is hygienic and does not take up space!



Jordana Color Tint Blush in Coral Touch (link goes to my review)

I go back to these every year. They are cheap, have great color payoff, and look fantastic on my skin. I have almost used them up, so I’m looking forward to repurchasing them next time I go to the US!



Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (link goes to my review)

Still a product I love and use daily! If you like to buff in your foundation, this is the brush to buy. It is cheap, soft, and applies my foundation beautifully. Also, it is small enough that I can even buff in concealer under my eyes.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Brazilian Tan

Ahhhh, I searched for this lipstick all throughout New York. Finally, another blogger told me I could find it in Flushing! This is the perfect nude lipstick for me. Not only do I like how it looks on me, I also use it to tone down brighter lipsticks.

In September 2013, I liked:


The Beauty Blender (link goes to my review)

Wow, I really haven’t been using makeup sponges since I fell in love with the Real Techniques foundation brush. I remember there was a distinct difference between the Beauty Blender (right) and the Sonia Kashuk sponge (left). I don’t know if there are any other companies which make makeup sponges which are as bouncy as the Beauty Blender, which is what I liked so much about it.



VOV Daily Fresh Apple AHA Peeling Gel (link goes to my review)

This mask was one of the first products I ever reviewed on this blog, and I still think it is a great product to gently exfoliate my face. I haven’t used it recently, but writing this blog post made me remember that I like to exfoliate my face towards the end of summer.



In September 2012, I liked:


Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso

I no longer own this blush and I am not sure why. This is one of those peachy-pink shimmer blushes, along the same lines as the NARS Orgasm blush. While I liked this product, I didn’t like how big the packaging was.




As always, it was extremely interesting to see what I liked in past years. This month, there was a nice mix of products I still love and use every day, products I had forgotten about, and products that I no longer count in my favorites.



Any products you have rediscovered lately?


xoxo, K
