Oh dear, is tomorrow the last day of September already?! :O
I can’t believe how fast time is passing, and there’s officially only going to be 3 months left before my absolute favorite holiday! I can already hear the sleigh bells ringing… ehhh well, only kind of hahaha! We still have the lovely autumn to get through, with its crisp falling leaves, earlier sunsets, and pumpkin spice everything 🙂 Oh, and how could I forget Thanksgiving? 😀
This September, I’ve been trying a variety of skincare products, and today, I’m here to share with you all some of my favorites for the month! So without further ado, let’s get started!
Tonymoly Panda’s Dream Dual Lip & Cheek 2 Color Palette in #2 Pink Baby
One of my absolute favorites this month has been this adorable little panda lip and cheek palette (because really, with just the packaging alone, this already deserves a favorite spot hahaha)! But jokes aside, with the imminent arrival of fall, this dual lip and cheek palette is perfect for the chillier and drier weather because the cream formula means it’ll help give a healthy glow and pretty lip color without making the skin appear dry, ashy, or flakey. There’s also a red/peach palette, but I liked the pink one a lot more because there’s just something about the autumn and winter months that make me want to play up elements of femininity in my everyday makeup looks 🙂 Would you purchase this just based on the packaging alone?
Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in OR201 Peach
If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now, then you know I’m a huge fan of these Fresh Cherry Tints from Etude House, as seen here and here. I already have both the red and pink versions, and I’ve wanted to try the peach one for so long too, but it’s been out of stock for awhile until recently, so I just couldn’t resist adding it to my collection 🙂 The thing that I love the most about these tints from Etude House are how long lasting they are – even after eating, the color still stays on! These are some of the most popular and classic Korean lip tints, and if you’re looking to hop on the bandwagon of Korean lip products, you should definitely check these out too!
Tonymoly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist
Another skincare favorite of mine has definitely been this moisturizing finishing spray from Tonymoly (and again, can the bottle be any cuter?!)! 😀 Seriously, Tonymoly, I think I’m going to be buying things from you based on packaging alone… Hahaha aside from the adorable little bunny packaging, though, the mist is so much more than just a setting spray because it neutralizes dry spots with a moisture blast, booting elasticity with natural fruit extracts and soothing irritated skin with aloe vera. I also love the light scent because it’s so refreshing, and the mist also adds an instant healthy glow to the skin! I’ve been taking this with me everywhere I go because it also does wonders for when I need to touch up my makeup! Although I may look like a crazy person, spraying this anywhere and everywhere, I really can’t help it (especially when the bunny packaging is so cute) hahaha! 😛 Are you a fan of setting sprays as well? And if so, would you give this one from Tonymoly a try?
Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask – Rose
In addition to the moisturizing spray from Tony Moly, another skincare staple that my skin’s been really loving has been this sheet mask from Innisfree. I love how fragrant the rose smells, and the extract provides ample moisture to make the skin supple and smooth. With Innisfree’s unique Jeju green complex, which consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves, and orchids, this mask helps skin stay healthy and moisturized. I also love the triple-layered sheet, which is a lot thicker than a lot of other brands masks, making it feel more luxurious on the skin. I’ve been a huge fan of sheet masks since my late teenage years, so I’ve used a insanely large variety of them, and this one from Innisfree has definitely earned a spot in my favorites! 🙂
Nature Republic Nail Polish in No. 03 Pink Waltz
I think I must be really loving pink this month because one of my last beauty favorites is this pretty pale pink nail polish from Nature Republic. As you all probably know from my previous raves about Nature Republic’s nail polishes here, I’m a huge fan of the large variety of colors that they offer. Not only do they have feminine hues that match Asian skin tones really well, I love how watery and fast-drying the formula is, making for a bubble-free and neat manicure every single time!
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
And of course, last but not least, I have a favorite book for the month 🙂 This book actually isn’t new (I’ve read it twice already), but every once in awhile, I like to revisit old novels and read them again because I feel and see something different in it every time. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only weird one who does this, right? Hahaha I feel like I do this for TV shows too, but that’s a story for another time…
I really like this novel because it’s actually the only novel written by Sylvia Plath, and this story is semi-autobiographical, documenting the protagonist’s descent into clinical depression, which mirrors Plath’s own experiences. It’s a somewhat dark and haunting tale, but I enjoyed this novel since I first read it back in college because the way the author writes about depression and its lingering effects, as well as the feelings of confusion that come with it, are very eye-opening and realistic. Although it’s a pretty short novel and an easy read, the true deeper meaning takes time to decipher and digest.
What were some of your favorites for this month? 🙂 Let me know in the comments below! Always love hearing from you! Hope you had a great September as well, and wishing you an amazing October ahead!
