September Favorites

Septembers favez

I hope you all had a great start of Fall. My thoughts are with those of you who are dealing with crazy weather due to the hurricane that is traveling up the East Coast. The sky has been a very gray even down here, but the temperatures have gotten nice and comfortable, so I am enjoying Fall so far. I filmed my monthly favorites, and it was unsurprisingly brief (well, kind of), since I have been so busy. Make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel here if you have not already. If you have any questions, please leave a comment under the video (I think I have replied to all of my comments so far! Woot, woot!), and keep an eye out for another blog post coming soon with new things and maybe a little giveaway ;) Here are the products mentioned in the video…

Yuli Metamorphic Face Elixir:  I experienced unusual dryness with my skin that I was not sure how to care for. I had bought a bottle of Metamorphic Elixir to give it another try so it was perfect timing. The other face mist I mentioned in the video is the Yuli Cocoon Face Elixir and you can read my review here.

Metta Body Butter*. Great smelling, rich body butter that is perfect for moisturizing the skin during colder months.

Fez Perfume Oil*. I am so thrilled that Kahina made the Fez scent into a perfume, because it is one of my favorite scents. The other Fez scented product I use is the Hand and Body Balm, reviewed here.

Gressa Lumiere Fluid Blush (Amelia)*. As expected, I have been enjoying this fluid blush. Amelia is a gorgeous coral shade and the texture of it is so easy to apply. Luminous finish that won’t leave you looking greasy. Just gorgeous.

Alima Pure Bronzer. I have gotten a bit more pale and this bronzer is perfect to add a little warmth to my face without looking like I am trying to fake a tan. It’s a loose powder but it comes in a clever package that prevents messes and spills. You can read my full Alima Pure Bronzer review here.

Red Apple Lipstick Tiny Dancer Lip Gloss*. I am not a big lip gloss fan because I hate wearing anything uncomfortable on my lips (whether sticky, slippery or drying), but this lip gloss is very comfortable and this particular shade is a beautiful pigmented and peachy nude.

Simple Human Sensor Mirror. A good investment considering that I do not have a spot in my house with good lighting and a good mirror where I can do my makeup, squeeze pimples, and overpluck eyebrows (I kid, I kid).

Paul & Joe Beauty Mirror. There is something about the size and quality of this mirror that makes it perfect to carry in my bag at all times. It looks delicate but it’s sturdy. A bit expensive for a hand mirror, but will definitely get a lot of use. Available here.

Thank you to everyone who has left the nicest comments under my videos. I am very self-conscious about my spoken English, so your kind words mean a lot to me! Thank you! I have a little something coming your way to thank you, so don’t miss my next post :) Have a great week!

    Hi Lilly, I am ready to purchase a Yuli elixir and I cannot decide between the Cocoon or Metamorphic. Fall and winter leave my skin red and dehydrated. Which one can you recommend? Thanks! xo

    • Hi Stefania, the Metamorphic mist is more hydrating than Cocoon, so I would opt for that one if your main concern is dehydration, (assuming that the redness that you experience is a consequence of dryness/dehydration). If your skin looks more irritated than dehydrated, than I would use Cocoon. I hope this helps, but please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

  • The Fez Perfume Oil and Metta Body Butter are on top of my wishlist! Lovely picks as always.

    Wonderful video! I love the Fez body serum so I immediately bought the perfume oil after your review! Beatyhabit includes a free 30ml body serum with the perfume which is a great deal! I love the perfume even more than the serum.
    I can smell a bit more of the florals and perhaps a little hint of citrus in the perfume and its great to layer them together!
