September Faves


Another month over, and another month closer to snow! Eeek! I am a fall fan, but am not so into winter, although I have had my eye on a super cute winter jacket. I can decided if I should just invest and get it and what colour to go for: red, totally my colour I look great in red, or black, the colour that goes with everything. Decisions, decisions.

Anyhow, it took me some real thought to pull together September's faves. I used a lot of different stuff, and really didn't buy that much... well yeah, I bought stuff, but I haven't gotten to use everything yet. That sounds terrible, but we all do it. Right?

Got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Hairspray
I have to say that I am totally all over the place when if comes to my hair. I use about a thousand different things, but usually never the same thing for more than a week or two. My hair and I have issues, lets put it at that. Anyway, that being said, this is a great hairspray for a light, flexible hold. The can says it is for touchable styles, and that it offers de-frizzing too. I usually wear my hair down (I have long hair, btw) and pin my bangs to one side or up the middle, and this hair spray is perfect. It has enough hold to keep flyaways and little stay hairs down, but you can also spray your whole head without the fear of that sticky heavy look that extreme hold formulas can sometimes leave you with.

Yves Rocher Vanille Noire
I did a review of my mini bottle a while ago, but have since recieved the full size bottle that I ordered. I love this even more than when I originally wore it. It is a warm vanilla with only a hint of a sweet undertone. So perfect for the cooler months. I love it!

Pantene Intensive Restoration Treatment for Medium- Thick Hair
This is from Pantene's new Hair Solutions line and is part of the dry to moisturized group. My hair tends to be dry so I picked up the whole group of shampoo, conditioner and the treatment. At first, I didn't really think that this product was going to be anything other than conditioner in a square tub, as upon first glance it isn't very thick. I expect this sort of product to be really thick, but this one looks just like your regular old conditioner. I was so wrong. You let this sit on your hair for five minutes and rinse. I am so happy with this stuff! It makes my hair so smooth and manageable, and it smells pretty great too.

Joe Fresh Nail Polish in Nude
I have been on a super job hunting spree, and have been hand delivering my resumes as opposed to emailing and mailing them like I usually do, so I have been keeping my manicures rather tame. This is a perfect neutral, work type of colour as it is a nude with a touch more pink. I am waiting to hear back on a not too shabby job at the licensing office (aka DMV) which I admit is not the career path I was dreaming of, but could be interesting and maybe even fun opportunity. How many terrible license photos would I get to take? Wish me luck!

Barbie by Cake Solid Scentsability (solid perfume)
This is an older product, and totally not available anymore (booo!) but I found this in the back of a drawer and had to use it. I wish I had bought more of the line and not just this as the smell is fantastic! It is a lemony cake, with vanilla, caramel and almond... so good. I get compliments and confused looks from people when standing in lines at the bank, grocery store and what not, as they think they can smell cookies. It is totally drool worthy. If you are reading this Cake, bring it back!!

Almay Intense I-Colour Eyeliner in Purple Amethyst
Another older product, I think that this is from the line of products made to go with your eye colour, but I am not too certain as I didn't buy it. My mom got me this liner to get me to try something different. I am totally in a rut, eyeliner wise as I only wear black or brown with dark green, or a charcoal-y - deep gray making rare appearances. Although I have brown eyes, navy blue looks ridiculous on me. Unexplainable really. Anyhow, I thought that this colour would be too shocking, but I turns out to be the nicest rich purple. I love this shade and have been wearing it quite a bit with Benefit Creasless shadow in RSVP.

Joe Fresh Blush in Plum
A new fall blush that I have really come to love. It is just enough of a change from my usual bright pink hue. This blush is smooth and goes on beautifully. For more of my ramblings on it go here.
