September Favorites | Mixed Bag

Ah, how did we find ourselves on the last day of the month already? September seriously flew by, between two weddings and a weekend away - I'm 100% ready for a relaxing weekend coming up! Even with a hectic month and starting a new job, I tested out a few new things this month and I'm excited to share these favorites with you!
September Favorites

YSL Rouge Pur Coture Lipstick


Who doesn't love a silky smooth lipstick? Getting chosen for the YSL Influentster box is like hitting the lottery! I was sent two colors to test out - Fuscia & Rose Stiletto. The one I will be getting the most use out of is definitely Rose Stiletto since it's more of an every day shade and a shade that looks really gorgeous on different skin tones, my sister tried it this past weekend and has a much fairer complexion than I do. You don't need to over apply the lipstick either - the color is extremely pigmented and very hydrating. So if you're feeling like your lips are a little dry it wont show with this lipstick! 
There are 42 different shades in the collection and with a price point of $36 for this high end lipstick you're sure to find a color that you like! 
 

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer




True story I bought a Maybelline primer at CVS at the start of the month and somehow in that same weekend managed to lose it -in my own house? I had used up my ELF primer, so I quickly stopped by Sephora to pick up a travel size of the smashbox photo finisher and absolutely loved it! The green color aides in color correcting and smoothing away the appearance of redness, completely fades to a smooth finish and it felt very similar to the blur primer from YSL I raved about it my empties video

St. Tropez One Night Only Wash Off Body Lotion



I'm a self tanning novice and hate when I find myself applying a self tanner that leaves streaks. Even worse when the tan fades at different times. Enter in this one night only wash off body lotion! It's an instant bronzing lotion that provides you with just enough glow to fake a tan! I bought the only size they offer which also happens to be easy to travel with! I've used it about a dozen times and cant rave enough about how easy it is to apply and in case you make a mistake it completely washes off without any problems!
 

Paper Source Gold Agenda

So - I may or may not have picked up another planner...I have a problem and I admit it! But I was having a hard time carrying my bigger Bando planner to and from work and basically in every bag I own so I scooped up this perfectly sized gold agenda and I'm so happy I did! It has the perfect amount of space for me to write in any plans I have for the day or appointments and still see the full week view. I don't use this as my to-do list or anything just more so a quick glance to see my week and coming weeks on the go!

Pilot FriXion Erasable Pen

I think its been stated that I like pens and paper products...so it should come as no surprise that I found my new favorite pens!! I love writing in ink but also like the ability to erase instead of having to scratch out what I wrote (especially in my planner) so these pens have been a life saver! My friend Jackie convinced me to try them and now I have them in the colorful pack :)

Have you tried any of these before? What was our favorite product of the month?

Linking up with Jenn & Jessi
Influenster sent me the YSL lipsticks in exchange for an honest review - all opinions are 100% my own.

  1. Oh girl, you and me both are ready for some chill time. Both of our Septembers were crazy, it's time to relax a bit. I've heard great things about the YSL lipstick, I might join Influencster JUST to try and get some, not a fan of the price tag!

  13. Erasable pens are my favorite! I'm still on the hunt for a perfect primer. I've seen a few around the blogsphere that I've added to my list and so I'll add this one too!

    ReplyDelete
  14. One of my biggest problems with lost lipsticks is that my lips get too dry. I might have to hive that lipstick a try though, especially since the rose stilleto is gorgeous! And I definitely picked up another planner too! I don't think my husband realizes how big of an issue it is...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yup, running out to buy those pens immediately! I love writing in pen but like you, I hate scratching things out! And those YSL lipsticks are gorgeous! Love both colors but you're right, the Rose Stiletto is so perfect for every day!

  19. I NEED to try out that tanning lotion! I am the same way-no matter how hard I try my self-tan always comes out streaky so I sort of just have up! Those YSL lipsticks look gorg too!

  22. I feel like a good hydrating lipstick with a lot of color is harder to come by than it should be. Both of those shades look lovely but I'd probably be more of a "rose stiletto" girl too. And I 100% need to get my hands on those erasable pens, would make life so much easier!

  24. YSL Lipsticks are my absolute favorites - they always look/feel so good! I'm actually heading to the mall in a little bit and hoping to pick up a new fall color.

  25. The Smashbox primer is the best!! Although I got a sample of the Hourglass primer with my Sephora points and I really like that one too.

  36. Loving that YSL Rose Stiletto shade, not a bad price point for a higher end brand. That correcting primer is something I've wanted to try, but after hearing how well it worked, I may just be picking it up. OMG girl I feel ya on the billion planners thing, everytime I see a new one, somehow I just neeeed it. My coworker thinks I'm nuts for having so many and thinks I should just use my phone...but I need.to.write.it.all.down!!!

  39. So jealous of you YSL box! I just recently ran out of that Smashbox primer - it's my fave! I replaced it with the NYX green primer, with is good, but can't match Smashbox. I might have to return to my fave next time.

  44. A new planner & pens? I may have actually said "OHHHH" out loud like a kid looking at candy.
    I need those pens. Do they erase well? I need some for my new planner!

  45. I love the new planner and pens. I carry a planner in my work bag and it could probably fit fine in my purse - I'm just not that committed lol. My favorite product I just started using are those cucumber face wipes. So refreshing and yummy smelling! Trish - tales from trish

  48. That bronzing lotion sounds fantastic. I used to use Smashbox primer years ago, but when I found out the Monistat Chaffing Gel is almost the exact same formula, I started buying that instead. Love it!

  49. The YSL lipsticks are gorgeous! I'ms o jealous of everyone who got that Voxbox to test out. lol The fuchsia color especially is gorgeous!

  53. Ooh I love the idea of the erasable pens. I only use pencil in my planner since I am constantly changing things, but that always smudges. The colors of the YSL lipstick are sooo pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am getting the YSL box and I had no idea it came with lipstick. Getting excited to see what colors I get.

  55. I need to check out those erasable pens!! I use a paper planner as well (Erin Condren) and I would love to be able to erase! I didn't even know they made those anymore!

  58. I need to give that Smashbox primer a shot. I've been wanting to find one. Yeah I love my Plum Planner but it's so big. I need something small that fits in every purse without weighing it down.

    ReplyDelete
  59. The YSL lipsticks are so pretty! I can't decide which one I like more - I need to see it with your hair because I think that will change everything. You're totally right, scoring the high-end VoxBoxes is totally like winning the lottery! I just scored the Keratease hair products and I was like YESSSSSS!

    ReplyDelete
  60. an erasable pen?! what is this sorcery?! i need them in my life. and how adorable is that planner? love it. meanwhile, i feel you on losing things in my own house. i normally blame the cats, but it's almost 100% me hahaha.

  62. Yay! I go that YSL box, too and I am OBSESSED! I actually think I like the fuscia better! I am not a huge bright pink lipstick person either so I am not sure where that is coming from but I adore this one.

  63. So neat that you got a YSL VoxBox! Such beautiful lipsticks! I'm obsessed with pens & paper products too-definitely need to try those pens out-I'm constantly buying new pens! lol

    I just tried the regular Smashbox primer for the first time not too long ago... when I was at the store I couldn't believe how many different varieties they had of it. They should make a sample pack of one of each!
