September Favourites


I'm not gonna go on at how another month as flown by. blah blag blah, but it has! This month saw a lot of new products for me as I did do rather a bit of shopping, so some of these are new and some are old favourites.

This is a great budget eye primer that creates a perfect base for applying eye shadow to. The sticky formula grabs on to colour, intensifying it and making to last without creasing. There's only one thing though, why the hell didn't I get it sooner?
This is another product that I wish I had sooner. So many people raved about this and in my mind I was thinking, "how good can a lip liner really be?" Well let me tell ya, it's fab!
I don't know how it does it, but this baby makes my lips so much bigger than they really are and also acts as a perfect tacky base when you apply lipstick over the top. The colour is perfection and I've been pairing it with a nude lip stick and even worn it alone on days where I cant be bothered, and it's still looked fab. (Full review to follow).
This will probably come as no surprise to regular readers. I absolutely adore this perfume. It's everything I look for in a fragrance, it's fresh, light and just perfect. Full stop, end of.
I tend to be a little slack when it comes to body moisturisers, but this one smells so damn good and sinks in within seconds that its a crime NOT to use it. It's another fresh and light product that leaves my skin feeling hydrated and smooth leaving a nice cooling sensation behind.
If you read my post here it will be no surprise that this has been featured in my monthly favourites. The cream to powder blush is just the perfect colour that flatters and suits the majority of my make up looks. I just can't get enough of it!
I'm always looking for a good under eye brightener as I do like to sport the whole Kim K look. This setting powder contains tiny flecks of shimmer, but once on the skin are undetectable, and instantly highlights and brightens the areas while setting my concealer in place.
I've been using this for the past month and have fallen head of heels in love with it. The cleanser is great at removing dirt without drying or stripping the skin.
One aspect I wasn't expecting to find was how well to has kept my skin spot and blemish free. I think the cleanser does a fantastic job at controlling oil and hydrating the skin just where it needs it, and the results so far have been completely unexpected and greatly received! (Full review to follow).
This is a new discovery of mine and one I have been really impressed with. The product comes in the form of a mousse that is used on dry unwashed hair and then dried in with a heat from a hair dryer. After this you wash and condition as normal and then use it weekly in the middle of the shampoo and condition steps or your hair care routine. I've used this a few times now and I've been surprised at how soft and manageable my hair is left afterwards. It feels nourished from root to tip, looking and feeling like I've had an expensive salon treatment. (Full review to follow).

    1. Pillow talk is just A-mazing!!! What a shame about the Brightening Powder. I must admit when I first saw it I was a little scared of the shimmer running through it, but I find it doesn't show up on the skin and really helps lighten the whole undereye area :) xxx
