BEAUTY WITHOUT CRUELTY LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

I'm always happy to try a new leave in conditioner. My hair is pretty long and with so much heat styling, it is always in need of a healthy dose of moisture. The first thing that caught my eye with this product is the fact that its cruelty free which is always a plus in my book. It is never tested on animals and is 100% vegan-vegetarian meaning it's a plant based formula. It has an earthy botanical scent and leaves my hair feeling oh so soft!  

LATHER ULTRA MILD FACE WASH

I subbed this item into my morning routine instead of using my regular face wash yesterday. I love how a little goes a long way and really lathers up. It left my skin feeling so soft and clean. This product has great things going for it, it is made in the USA and is paraben and sulfate free. 

HIKARI COSMETICS LIP GLOSS IN MERLOT

I was pleasantly surprised with this product. It is the most gorgeous color to transition into fall. A really deep intense red mauve. The packaging is sleek and sturdy and the formula is great, high pigmented with no drying effect and just a hint of shine.

REAL TECHNIQUES CONCEALER BRUSH

This product was redeemed for 250 ipsy points. I'm a sucker for makeup brushes and just couldn't pass it up. Make sure to check out the points section on the ipsy website frequently, they always add new rewards throughout the week and they go quick. 

SKONE COSMETICS LUXE DOUBLE EYE/LIP PENCIL IN WINE

This is such a versatile item. It doubles as an eye and lip pencil and comes in a gorgeous wine color, making it perfect for fall! I absolutely love dark berry lip tones for fall and this pencil does not disappoint. I will be using this product as a lip pencil to shape, line, and fill my lips this upcoming season.

DOUCCE ULTRA PRECISION EYELINER IN BLACK

So buttery smooth! This eyeliner glides on so smooth. I did swatch it and washed dishes about an hour later and it came off very easily with dish soap so it might not be as waterproof as it claims.  

I was pleasantly surprised with my August Ipsy glambag. It's a great way to try new beauty and skincare products for only ten dollars. My favorites this month were definitely the Hikari Cosmetics lip gloss in Merlot and the Skone Cosmetics luxe double eye/lip pencil in Wine. Which products did you get that you were delighted with? I would love to know!
