BEAUTY: September Maven Box

I'm something of an enigma. I love bright colors. Hot pink, cherry red, you name it-especially when it comes to nail polish. 

I also love Autumn. Deep orange, plum-y purple-heck the hubs and I were married in October with plum as our main color. 

So every year around August, with plenty of summer still left (especially here in Washington), I am completely ready for it to be fall to bust out those rich jewel-toned nail polishes. Just like every year around March, I am completely ready for it to be Spring to bust out those bright, cheerful nail polishes.

Which is why I was so excited when i received my September Maven box in the mail. This month’s collection was entitled "Art Walk". My style profile was Classic With a Twist- a first! Included in the box were Quinn (charcoal purple), Lupita (rhubarb), and a Plush Pout lip crayon. I added on Karmen (golden crimson), and the dry shampoo and argan oil. The others were gifts for adding on three items. 

I absolutely love the colors! I've only worn Lupita and Karmen so far but am excited to try the others.

The argan oil and dry shampoo are both good products. I doubt I'll reorder them but I'll enjoy using both while I have them.

I love the lip crayon! I was able to pick the shade that worked best for me which I appreciated because I'm so picky when it comes to lip colors.

I chose the Almond Nude shade, which was the most neutral of the options. When it comes to makeup, I typically choose to play up my eyes and go for a neutral lip. The crayon is super moisturizing (it has a moisturizing core surrounded by the color) and provides good color without being too shiny or sticky. I think this will become a staple in my makeup bag as the temperature starts to drop.

What did you mavens think of your box?
