I'd love to hear what some of your September favorites have been.  And even some of your phooies.  Did you find anything that you really love in September?  What are you looking forward to wearing for fall?


  1. I'm so bummed the Desert Dusk palette didn't work for you! It's one of my favs right now! My rosacea has been bad but maybe it's not affecting my lids, I find the colors complimentary to my fair eyes and skin! Some of the mattes were dusty but manageable; my palette hasn't gotten dirty yet thankfully but I haven't swatches everything or used everything in it yet so I can't pass too much judgement either way!!! I was worried about the overcoats too but I actually love starting to lay down the eye look, then adding concealer to a part of my lid, and patting on one of the overcoat shades. This worked great with Twilight! If you aren't returning it, I highly recommend trying it!! if you're returning it then good, because it's not worth the money if it doesn't make you happy! 💕

  2. I've been wanting to try Desert Dusk... It seems like people are either really loving it or really hating it =\ I've been loving the Natasha Denona Lila Palette =)

  3. I'm always intrigued with your color cosmetics. You go for the gold!

  4. I was considering getting that Fenty Highlighter Duo but decided on Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby (which I do like!); I might have to try Girl Next Door/Chic Phreak again!

  5. That's a bummer about the Desert Dusk palette! The colors are so pretty though :)

  6. I wish that Desert Dusk palette worked better! The shades are so pretty

  7. I wanted the Desert Dusk palette when I first saw it, but found a few of the shades were too pale for me - all for the best! I can't stand dusty eyeshadows.
