I didn't buy much last month or this month. I decided to combine both months. I've written reviews for most of these products already and will have them linked down below too.
Let's get started! I love Target and always find myself in the beauty aisle. I picked up Alba Botanica's Hawaiian Facial Toner for $8.99. It has a citrus smell to it and has no parabens, phthalates, and they don't test on animals. My last Neutrogena one wasn't doing a good job. It would leave behind residue. I apply Alba's in the mornings after I wash my face and to take off my makeup. It does an amazing job at taking my makeup off and making my face feel refreshed. It doesn't dry my face out like other skin products. I'd definitely recommend it!

I've been using this Wet n Wild Mattifying Powder lately and have been loving it. For $5 it does it's job. I apply it after my foundation or BB cream and it controls the shine that usually occurs throughout the day. Review posted here.

I wanted to venture into using pigments and bought some from Myo Makeup off Amazon. They are gorgeous colors! Most are appropriate for fall time. They aren't too hard to work with and last long. Review posted here.

I had been wanting to check out Sigma's new cosmetics and found a authorized seller on Amazon. I'll be getting a review up this week. "Serene" is a rosey brown with a matte finish. I like to take a break from wearing shimmer on my cheeks sometimes. So far I like it, but am gathering up my final thoughts on it.
A sample that I recieved from Pinch Me was a Suave Skin Solutions Smoothing Body Lotion. It has cocoa butter and shea. It's meant to soften rough and dry skin. It definitely did that! Every winter only one of my hands gets really dry and cracks. I'm not sure why it's only one of my hands, but this cream helped tons! Plus the smell is amazing! 2 fluid ounces for free isn't too bad! I'll be purchasing when I'm done with this little one! :) You can join Pinch Me here. The samples are completely free and first come, first served on Tuesdays!
Here are swatches of the Rimmel London nude liner and Sigma blush! Serene has one swatch and the eyeliner was swatched twice. These are in natural lighting.

Too many pictures! Ooops. Sorry!
