August Favorites (Velvet Rose Palette, Spotlight Palette, Brow Pomade, Kiss Gloss, Quo Lipstick)

It's September, and almost fall and I am so so excited! Fall is my favorite time of the year, and while I dread the cold winter that comes after, I'm still so happy when fall rolls around. In my opinion, it's the coziest time of year. It starts to get a bit crisp outside, but you're still comfortable when putting on a sweater or jacket. Okay, back to the makeup... In the month of August, I was looking for quick and easy looks. The palette that stood out to me the most was the Revolution Beauty Velvet Rose palette. Yes, it looks like the ABH Soft Glam palette and I love the Revolution Beauty version. I can see this palette staying on my vanity and not moving. It has a different feel from your regular warm neutral look. If you want a more in dept review/swatches, you can check it out here.

I decided to shop my stash and go back to my BH Cosmetics Spotlight palette, and I rediscovered my love for this palette. It has 6 shades, and I can mix and match to customize a shade. Looking at the palette, you can see how much I used it this month. It blends very nicely into my skin, and lasts all day. In my recent Revolution Beauty haul, I hauled the Brow Pomade. The only other brow pomade that I've tried is the NYX version and I really prefer the Revolution Beauty pomade. I like that I can use a small brow brush and create a natural look. Pencils are great but I do feel like I have more control and precision with a pomade and a good brush. A natural looking brow is pretty easy to achieve with this product.

Lip products, do you see those lip products? Lip products are actually my less favorite part of makeup. That's the truth, but I have been wanting to try more. I like a lip product that wears away nicely, and doesn't give me any extra work. If I choose to reapply, fine. If I don't, that needs to be okay too. The Kiss Luxe Creamy Lip Glosses were sent as PR and I really do like them. Kiss is not readily available for me, but I wish that they were. These lip glosses are nicely pigmented, not sticky and great for every day. I tend to stick to gloss during my work week. The other lipsticks I wore often were the Quo lipsticks. I picked up a trio and these two shades were the ones I used the most. They don't have shade names but feel so nice on the lips. They're hydrating on the lips, and comfortable to wear. I will now keep an eye out for more Quo lip products.

Have you tried any of these products? Are you excited for fall? Let me know.
