MAC x Rocky Horror: Set Powder Review
Here’s another fab product I picked up when the MAC x Rocky Horror Picture Show collection dropped at the beginning of October: Set Powder in Invisible. This is one of the few products from the collection that is still available, so grab some if you are interested! This is a product from MAC’s permanent line that was just given some limited edition packaging :)
I really like this product. It’s a loose powder that I used with the elf Kabuki Face Brush to set my foundation, concealer and blush. It’s really finely milled, so it basically disappears when buffed into the skin, leaving a nice, semi-matte finish and helping my “face” stay on all day. I like that it doesn’t settle into my fine lines or look cake-y. Now, if you have super-oily skin, this isn’t going to keep you shine-free all day, but would probably be great in conjunction with a mattefying primer.

Amanda’s Top 3 for September: Eyes,Lips and Face
I thought I’d hurry up and post this before October was over - ha!
Eyes: Clinique All About Shadow Super Shimmer Eyeshadow in Black Honey - I’ve been a fan of cult fave Black Honey Almost Lipstick since junior high, so I HAD to pick up this coordinating bronzey-rose shadow! It’s gorgeous for fall.
Lips: Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub - I’ve had this for ages - a little bit goes a long way! - and it’s perfect for prepping lips for this season’s vampy lipcolors.
Face: Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Day Cream SPF 15 Broad Spectrum - I bought this at Ulta at the end of September when it was time to transition from my daily facial sunscreen back to a moisturizer with SPF. This one is amazing! It smells great, absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel so soft! Plus it contains arctic cloudberry seed oil, which just sounds very Nordic and romantic. Will definitely be repurchasing this cream when I run out.
