Another month has come and gone, and I am actually getting my monthly favorites post done on time! This month has been super busy with school and life changes, but so far things are going pretty well for this semester. Now onto the favorites!
This has been on my wishlist since the beginning of summer, and I finally bit the bullet and just bought one! I got the Hydroflask 21 oz bottle in the color mint and I also ordered The Coldest Water lid that fits on the Hydroflask so I could have a straw with this size. My water stays cold all day, never spills, and is also the perfect size for my backpack. I definitely want to get a bigger size in the future!
I had a couple of events to go to this month so that required a few lip shades. ColourPop’s Ultra Blotted Lip in Slide is the perfect mauve shade. Also for being a liquid lipstick, it is very comfortable and not too drying. I like how it is just a slight wash of color that lasts all night long. The next one is Mac Captive. I bought this last fall and haven’t gotten a lot of use out of it yet. This is a great deep plum-mauve shade in a satin formula. It’s very comfortable and long-wearing. These are both great shades to wear all fall long! I wish I had more occasions to break out the dark lips because I really enjoy wearing them!
I bought a few new succulents for my dorm room and I have really been enjoying them. Having plants in the room creates a lot more life, and I enjoy taking care of something. I probably have too many, but they are super easy to care for and look really cute. I found a few containers for a really good price and the succulents were on super sale at Lowe’s so I got everything for very little money.
I have been rotating between mascaras, but I started using L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara. This mascara makes my lashes look super voluminous, which I hoped it would because it is in the name! I love the look that this makes my lashes have. The only problem I have with this mascara is it is a little wet, but I’m hoping the longer I have it open it will dry out a little bit so it doesn’t get all over the place.
I love a good burgundy on my nails. Essie Bahama Mama has been my favorite for years and I found myself using this a bunch in the fall season. It’s a straightforward deep burgundy color, but I just love the way it looks on my toenails. It adds a nice pop of all on my feet!
