September Beauty Favorites (& a Fail!)

Another month has come and gone, and September definitely brought me some new goodies (and a fail!) in the beauty department.

If you follow me on Snapchat (@msinthemidwest), then you know that this hot styling brush has totally changed my daily hair routine – it basically gives you the look of a professional blowout all in the comfort of your own bathroom. After hearing many people rave about this shade of lipstick and most recently Kristen stating it’s a must-have from the drugstore, I finally found it at my local grocery store. The hype is real, people! It’s the perfect shade of pink, and the formula is creamy and lasts all day.  
I rediscovered this high-end eyeshadow palette that has been sitting in my vanity drawer since last Christmas, and I’m mad at myself that I haven’t given it more love sooner! I don’t own any other MAC eyeshadows, but that probably will change now – these shadows blend like a dream, and the colors in this palette are perfect for fall. Sticking with eye products, I also had a major mascara score and a major mascara letdown. CoverGirl never ceases to amaze me with their mascaras, and their latest is no exception – although the brush might be small and thin, it definitely packs a punch for long, voluminous lashes. This Maybelline mascara on the other hand ended in a horrible, clumpy mess – the formula is way too thick and wet for my taste. I probably will try to dry out the tube a bit and try it again as a second finishing coat over another mascara.
