From the list of August beauty, I took some items off but added nothing new. I was sick for the second half of September, and I don’t really remember what I wore in the first half, so this month’s list is an educated guess. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the routine so that I can get out the door without much fuss.

I have been experimenting with simplifying and adjusting the routine somewhat. I haven’t been using bronzer and sometimes cutting out the concealers.

To start off the individual product updates, I mentioned in a previous month that I had lost the Revlon Peach Parfait Lip Butter – I have since found it, and not in the place which I had suspected. It still looks and smells in good condition, but it feels thinner and greasier than I think it should, if I remember correctly how it used to be when it was fresh, so I am tossing it after all. I had about a quarter-inch of it left.

It’s still going to take the rest of this year and maybe a little more to use up Maybelline’s Bad to the Bronze but I can see the finish line! I think I have less than a quarter left.

That’s about it. Nothing fancy this month.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional makeup anything. I am a journeyman makeup enjoyer, hopefully contributing something interesting to my audience. All items purchased by myself unless otherwise noted.

For comparison, my skin is a medium yellow tone with cool undertones; the foundations that best match me have been: MAC Studio Fix C30, Neutrogena Healthy Skin Natural Beige 60, Revlon Colorstay Whipped Medium Beige 250.
