Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in Honey Love
If you're a fan of Clinique Chubby Sticks & Revlon Kissable Balm Stains, you'll definitely like these!  The Jordana ones are more sheer, smell/taste better, and are a lot cheaper.  Honey Love is a wearable, pretty pink shade.

Sinful Colors Leather Loose Nail Polish
I saw this on Nouveau Cheap's site and I immediately had to have it.  Advertising as nail polish with "patent leather accents" seemed a little gimmicky to me, at first.  But the matte finish with a little shimmer does remind me of patent leather.  This color is pretty unique and feels cool, too.  For only $2, it's definitely a winner in my book. (*Extra bonus - this week, (9/1-9/7) Sinful Colors polishes are only .99 cents at Walgreens!)

I made quite a few repurchases this month. So here are a two "oldies but goodies" that I haven't raved about in awhile:

It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Product
This product is a 10-in-1.  I mostly use it when my hair is feeling extra dry and/or tangled... it does a great job and smells great, too.  I finally just invested in the 10oz bottle, which I should've done a long time ago!

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express
This has been my go-to mascara for the past few months. I've tried others but I keep coming back to this one. The volume is great, it lengthens quite a bit, too.  Best of all - it doesn't smudge and it's pretty easy to get off at night.
