My September Beauty Product Favorites (And Not So Favorite)


This month has been extremely humid here in New York City. We haven't had much fall weather unfortunately but I'm still wearing fall lip and nail shades. There's some new launches I tried and some disappointments in my vegan deodorant journey. Here's what I loved and didn't love using this month:
September Beauty Favorites
FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter $34 - I reviewed some Fenty Beauty products earlier this month. Was super excited about the launch and thankfully the products I tried lived up to the hype especially this Killawatt highlighter in Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal. It's great for my fair skintone and I got so many compliments when I wore it.

KYPRIS Beauty Beauty Elixir I: 1000 Roses $90 - Go with me here... lol Rose oils are a big trend in beauty and KYPRIS's Beauty Elixir is one of the staples. "A 100% active, moisturizing Beauty oil formulated with holistic principles in mind. Scientifically established nutrients, a plethora of botanical extracts, and the essential oil of 1,000 organic Bulgarian roses combine to repair signs of environmental challenge to deliver dewy, glowing, rose-petal-soft skin." Now that I'm in my 30 years, I have to invest in my quality products and I've been impressed with this serum. It doesn't clog pores, keeps you moisturized overnight and feel my skin has been healthier looking.

R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo $29 - Received a 1 oz sample in my Birchbox this month. I've given this brand a tough time so was pleasantly impressed with this dry shampoo. I like to use it on my bangs (which are high maintenance!) to give a little volume and keep them in place all day.

Not so favorite September Beauty Products
Tarte Clean Queen Vegan Deodorant $14 - As you may or may not know, I've been on a quest to find a healthy alternative to deodorant. Tarte is a vegan beauty brand that I love as it's great quality and cruelty-free so was excited when they released a deodorant. As I've tried with previous ones, different "stress" situations to really ensure the endurance. Unfortunately this tarte deodorant did not hold up AND it in fact began to cause red bumps on my underarms. Eek! My skin did not appreciate this deodorant so I'd proceed with caution.

OPI Natural Nail Strengthener $10.50 - I have a nail growth issue so I'm always looking for a good nail strengthener/grower. I saw one of the nail bloggers I love recommend this so I picked it up. Unfortunately haven't been super impressed and it's not great as a base coat as every polish I layered over it peeled right off. My beloved Rejuvacote works as not only a strengthener and a base coat so I expect the same from a brand like OPI.

What products did you love this month?
