Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush Highlighter Eyeshadow
I had mixed feelings when I received this in my August Birchbox. I didn't really need another brown eyeshadow, but I was happy it wasn't a vibrant purple or some color I'd never wear. This grew on me more and more each day; it's currently all I wear on my eyelids and cheeks. The color is soft and glowy. When wearing this on my cheeks, I don't feel like I need to also add a highlighter. I especially like how it's a multitasking product; it makes getting ready that much easier.

Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara
I mentioned this last month. I'm still really liking this mascara. I seem to like mascaras even more after a month when they've dried up some  - this one is no exception.

NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil (Ash Brown)
I've tried a few different brow products lately - pomades, gels, and thick pencils. I keep coming back to this ultra thin pencil. It's perfect for filling in patchy brows.

I originally tried this mascara in the Naked on the Run Palette over a year ago; I wasn't a fan. I received this mascara in my August Sephora Play! box and I decided to give it a try again. I'm really liking it layered over the Marcelle mascara mentioned above. Combined together, they almost look like false lashes. →

Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo
After trying so many texturizing sprays and hair oils lately, I could feel so much product buildup in my hair. I don't like spending a lot on shampoos; I purchased this on a whim from Walgreens for under $2. My hair finally feels squeaky clean again. I've been using this clarifying shampoo every other wash.

multitaskers & mascaras,
