I know I was late with my last favorites and it hasn't been a month...But you know me. I GOT MORE TO SHARE!

Marrakesh Leave in Treatment & Detangler - I pretty much just searched for a detangler on Amazon because my hair was constantly a mess and got this based on the reviews. I kid you not, when my hair gets a little too long (I'm due for a haircut big time), no matter how much conditioner I use and how often I brush, in no time it turns into ONE giant knot. Disaster. I spray this on damp hair and brush out with the most ease (yes even if it's a big lump of wet hair all tangled together) and it conditions my hair so beautifully. No knots, no breakage, just healthy hair. This is probably the most life changing hair product I've ever used, though I'm really not an expert in that department since I'm pretty low maintenance with my hair. So take it for what you will, but I can never go without this again.

Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer - Earlier in the month, we had quite a bit of a heat wave here in California. Nothing seemed to keep my makeup in place for more than a few hours (intense sweat is hard to beat). This is a stage grade setting spray, designed to keep actor's makeup fresh under the heavy lights. Well this shit is amazeballs. It does feel like you're spraying Listerine on your face and God forbid you get it in your eye, but if you're careful, you will never have to worry about heat, sweat or oil ruining the day. I would definitely recommend this for brides or anyone who needs their makeup to stay perfect all day!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Infatuation - I am soooo ready for fall. With this wearable vampy color, I've slowly eased myself into next season's color scheme. LOVE! (You can see swatches HERE)

OPI Nail Lacquer in Suzi - The First Lady of Nails - To keep with the autumn vibe, I feel this is the perfect transition shade. I very rarely wear the same color on my finger and toes, let alone for more than a few days, but I've been wearing this polish on all 10 nails for the last few weeks. So...Ya know!

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser - I've been using more intensive treatments to get my skin on point, so I like to keep my cleanser pretty gentle. This is gentle and affordable. Leaves your face super clean without drying it out. It's also great for sensitive and acne prone skin. I'll talk about my recent skincare routine soon, still want to give it a few more weeks for certain products ;)

Clean & Clear Deep Action 60 Second Shower Mask - I got a free sample at CVS, thought nothing of it and left it in the shower. I use it every other day and I really love how deeply clean and refreshed my skin feels after. A great little pick me up, especially if you haven't had time to do a proper facial, as I have lately. It gently exfoliates without irritating my skin and it's a very soothing experience. It feels a little minty but not tingly, just a nice spa-like minute. I will definitely get the full size once I run out since it's super affordable and easy to use.

Up & Up Rounded Concealer Applicator - This is from the Target home brand and actually comes in a set with a little angled kabuki as well (which is great for under eye concealer but not my FAVORITE). This little gem, however, is the most perfect tool to really target stubborn spots or discoloration. Blends like a dream and gives you the most targeted coverage out of your concealer. Oh and the best part? It's $6 for BOTH brushes. Insane.

Well that's it for now homies! What have you been loving lately? 

Talk to you soon!
