Truthfully, this post is going to be a little bit of a "back-to-school" favorites post as well; going back to school definitely changes up the products I reach for often. Also, the changing of seasons means me pulling out different makeup products to play with!
|Rebekah's September Favorites!|
|China Glaze's Merry Berry|
Fall isn't complete without my go-to fall/winter nail polish color! China Glaze's Merry Berry is a beautiful deep red-colored polish. It's a stretch to consider it a true "berry" tone, but if you squint hard enough you can see it. Opaque in two coats, application is easy and I know I'll be wearing this color over and over the next few months. ^_^
|Wet and Wild's Color Icon Blush in Berry Shimmer|
|NYX's Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Iced Mocha|
|Bareminerals eyeshadow in Iced Coffee|
for a longer-lasting, more intense lid that is still wearable.
Next is another NYX product that I've raved about: Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Tea Rose. I have an entire blog post about it here, so I'll just move on...
Last but not least, my newest favorite mascara. Maybelline's The Rocket Waterproof has quickly shot up my list of holy grail mascaras. To put things in perspective for everyone, I am incredibly picky with what mascara I use. My lashes are stick-straight, terrible at holding curl, and because my left eye's tear duct is blocked, I need a mascara that doesn't run when I'm constantly tearing up. My last true holy grail mascara was Lo'real's Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof mascara. I purchased six tubes of that in succession. An unknown force compelled me to look into a new mascara, and after a few duds, I picked this one up. I'll just let the little awkward, slightly creepy animation below speak for itself...

And that is all for this month! I apologize for the strange appearance, I somehow got a stye over the weekend and haven't felt safe putting on any kind of eye makeup until today because it has gone down. My eyelid is a peeling and disgusting *hurk* It's extremely frustrating for me because I have no clue how it happened, especially because I don't let anyone touch my makeup. *sigh*
Thank you all for reading! I'd love to hear about what your monthly/Fall favorites are! :)
