September 2013 Beauty Favorites + Giveaway!


Hey guys! It's time for this month's favorite products recap and if you've been following the blog this month, you may see some familiar faces. I don't make any qualms about saying that when I love something new, I loooove it so obviously it's gonna make it into my favs. ;)

This month we have a bit of everything from a concealer to a beautifully fragranced bath oil to a favorite new sunscreen. Let's check it out below!


PRODUCTS MENTIONED:

Urban Decay Vice Palette 2
Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42
Benefit Bathina
Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in Beige
OPI Original Nail Envy Strengthener
Urban Decay Nail Color in Addiction
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Mini Satchel with Gusset

ON ME:

Necklace - Amrita Singh Melissa Necklace
(bought recently on Hautelook sale - my invite)
Top - Victoria's Secret neon long-sleeved tee
Nails - ORLY Golden Maharaja



As I mentioned in the title, there is also a bit of a hidden giveaway in this favorites video! I should list that another favorite of mine this month has been a site called Luvocracy which is similar to Pinterest, but the concept is more about easily sharing what you love and recommend with others and actually being able to buy those products. One of the biggest struggles I've found in the blogging world is that you may see an outfit on someone or a makeup look and not be able to hunt it down.

Luvocracy has offered a $100 giftcard through the site for one of my followers and the only thing you have to do is sign up for an account through the link http://www.luvocracy.com/frmheadtotoe and leave a comment on my Youtube video saying you entered. The giveaway will run for 1 week, closing October 9th at 11:59pm PST.


Honestly this site has been great for organizing the things that I love and want, especially as it comes closer to holiday time. I'm notorious for not having answers when people ask me what I want for Christmas or my birthday (also in December) so now I can keep track of each item that comes up. Same with people asking for recommendations, here you can see everything that I'm loving too!

Good luck with entering the contest and I hope you enjoyed this month's favorites!

Readers, what is your highest recommended beauty product this month? How do you keep track of your "wants" list? Let me know in the comments below!

  7. Love the concept of luvocrazy but is the concept easier than Pinterest & Polyvore?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I find it to be more specific since it's product-focused versus random images & ideas. You can gather exact things you recommend and want.

  8. Hi Jen,
    Could you do a look inspired by Versace Spring / Summer 2014 runway show? It has rock & roll chic and just-roll-out-of-bed vibe which (I think) is very cool. http://www.allure.com/beauty-trends/runway-beauty/spring-2014/backstage-versace-video

    I'm just not sure how to adapt this look for my small-lid / almost monolid eyes and you're the best makeup guru for this that I know of. :)

  12. Hi Jen! My recommendation is the Coastal Scents 22-brush set because of the amazing value. I even use your brush display idea (except I user rice instead of sand). Actually my latest blog post has more details on it, and I do give props to your blog as well! www.facebook.com/thewearwithal11 or www.thewearwithal.com

  14. What a great giveaway, thanks Jen! I think this months recommendation would be Benefits' Rockateur blush, I have been using it non-stop and haven't used any other blush at all since I picked it up! I'd also like to recommend Living Proof hair Primer. It keeps your hair cleaner longer, and is a great heat and environmental protectant for your hair! ^___^ Keeps my curls for 2+ days!

  15. hey jen! thanks to your video, I spent my night browsing luvocracy :) so fun! i'm not sure if you respond to comments, but I was just curious - how is this site really different from pintrest?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's different because it's more product-focused and the links are shoppable (versus pinterest which is pinning random stuff) so it's awesome for creating wishlists or sharing with others what you recommend. :)

  21. Hi Jen,
    How is the Cle De Peau concealer for covering blemishes/acne scars?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It has high coverage but is best for oily to normal skin types since it's a drier formula and can enhance dry patches that blemishes can leave behind. Make Up For Ever Full Cover concealer is my fav for blemishes.

      Delete
  22. Do you have any suggestions for any good eye makeup primers? I've tried different eye primers, but after 4-8 hours, the eyeshadow gets smudgy and fades. I have oily skin, by the way.

    1. My favorite is Urban Decay Primer Potion!
