As I write this, I’m taking a quick trip to go scuba diving. Nothing much going on – I feel like I enjoy diving so much that I’m really not doing much else.

Monthly Favorites #74: September, 2017

August was a weird month. Tokyo had 20+ days of continuous rain, even though it is supposed to be the hottest month of the year here.  With the lack of sun, my favorites weren’t as summery as they usually are at this time of year!

 

Here is what I have been loving this past month!

 

Sleek i-Divine Palette (Original)

I checked the Sleek website, and while this palette is still available, the picture online looks very different.

I especially like the bottom row, which has a lot of great neutral shimmery shades.

 

Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle (link goes to my review)

I heard that this product has been discontinued. Why Revlon, why???  These were such a great combination of lip gloss and lip stick, with a sheer color that was comfortable to wear.

 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche

This is a limited edition fragrance for the summer, which is modified each year. I own the one from 2016.

It’s a great combination of coconut, amber, and sandalwood, and is appropriate both for work and for fun.

What have you been loving this past month?

It has been raining in Tokyo EVERY SINGLE DAY in August. Can you believe it!? August is supposed to be the hottest month of the year in this country. It’s nice that the weather is cooler than normal, but the weather is affecting the economy – crops don’t grow well without sunlight!

Throwback: Favorites from August

It’s been a while since I revisited my old favorites on my blog.  I did a huge clean out when I moved, so hopefully this throwback will remind me of some forgotten favorites!

 

In August 2015, I liked:

 

Shirt Cool (link goes to my review)

This is a spray that you apply to your clothes, and it keeps you cool for about 30 minutes.  This is a must have product for me every summer! I buy a bottle in May, and it lasts until the end of September.  This definitely works!

Jordana Cosmetics Color Tint Blush Sticks (link goes to my review)

I used these up and didn’t repurchase them again. I tried to find Jordana cosmetics when I was last in the US, but it was VERY hard to find anything.   Isn’t it such a bummer when a product you like is discontinued?

Daiso eyebrow coat

This is a gel which helps eyebrow products last longer.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I use this year round! Other brands have also released similar products, but you can’t go wrong with $1!

Daiso Ever Bilena Eyebrow Coat

 

Gatsby Body Wipes (link goes to my review)

Another must have for me in the summer. These are big sheets to wipe down your body with, and the cooling sensation lasts for a while. I’m on my second pack this summer!

Sparkly Soul headbands

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was introduced to these headbands! I love them for when I run. They keep my hair out of my face, and they don’t slide off.

In August 2014, I liked:

 

 Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everlast BB cream (link goes to my review)
This is a local brand that I picked up in Indonesia.  It was surprisingly affordable!

 

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer Treatment (link goes to my review)

I really liked this product to conceal my undereye circles. I may need to repurchase it when I’m in the US!

 

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Elusive (link goes to my review)

I loved the color! Unfortunately, I don’t think I like how matte lip products look on my lips, so I didn’t repurchase this.

Wow, it seems like I was using these products just yesterday!
