September Favourites 2017

I am determined for this post not to be as late as my August favourites were, so I’m making sure I’m ready this time. September seems to have dragged, but not in a bad way; if that makes sense.

Enough about that though, let’s get into the September favourites.

L’Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara

I am very late to the party with this, but I usually am with mascaras. There’s something about applying mascara that I don’t like. I want my mascara to leave my lashes full, which is a lot for my extremely short and straight lashes. In all honesty when I first used this mascara I wasn’t impressed. After a few uses I have really grown to love it. It doesn’t clump and lengthens the lashes without clumping. I apply two coats of this and I’m good to go. It doesn’t smudge during the day either which is always a bonus.

Soph x Revolution Highlighting Palette

For those that don’t know, the YouTuber SophDoesNails has released an eyeshadow palette and a highlighter palette with Makeup Revolution. I love Makeup Revolution highlighters and this palette is no exception. She has gone for a mixture of shades to suit a number of skin tones which is really great. I love gold highlighter, so I have been loving using the gold on the top row. These highlighters are really pigmented, but it all depends on how much you apply, as you can easily get a subtle look, but they build easily.


I love burning candles at anytime of year, but this month has been a little candle crazy. Sometimes I go a while without burning any, but I have finally burnt candles that I have been hoarding for a while. I have managed to get through some. B&M are stocking some Essence candles that are supposed to be dupes for the Bath and Body Works ones, but I went to smell them and they were not for me at all, so I gave those ones a miss. One of my favourite candles is the Vanilla one from Ikea, as it is so affordable, you can actually smell it in the room when it’s burning and it has a good burning time.

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser 

I saw somebody talk about this on their blog, and I can’t remember who it was, so I’m really sorry about that. Basically I have really dry skin and with what I was using before my skin wasn’t getting any better, but I thought: ‘maybe if I keep using it, it will get better’, but it didn’t. Which is where this comes in, I wasn’t planning on getting it, but when I was in Boots and saw it, it somehow ended up in basket (Funny how that happens) The moisturiser its self has made a drastic improvement in my skin in such a short amount of time. You only need a tiny amount of product too, so this is sure to last a long time. It’s suitable for vegetarians and is free from: parabens, mineral oils and sodium laureth sulphate. It only costs £7.99 for a 100ml tube.

Too Faced Hangover Setting Spray

I have really started using this, this month, mainly because I wanted to use up my Urban Decay All Nighter first which is just about empty. This setting spray is a 3 in 1 which means you can spray it all over as a primer, use it set makeup and then use it to refresh your face during the day. I don’t use it as a primer, as I prefer the actual hangover primer. This is brilliant for the other two though. I do find myself spraying too much which sometimes leaves my face feeling a little wet, but it soon dries with no white marks.

The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel

I normally aren’t the biggest fan of pumpkin smelling things, but the vanilla in this really smells amazing. Now we all know that scents aren’t the easiest to describe. This is sweet yet spicy, which probably isn’t helpful in the slightest, but hey I tried. It lathers really nicely, and I now really want to get my hands on the body butter and the shimmer mist. It’s also made me really excited to see what they release for Christmas!

Well I think this makes up for August’s sorry excuse for a favourites!

What have you loved throughout September?

Thank you for reading!

    I really want to find myself some good drugstore highlighters at the moment, and just highlighters in general now my cheeks have started to clear up. I love makeup revolution so I’m definitely gonna have to pop into superdrug to give that palette a swatch! x


  4. Emma says:

    That moisturiser looks and sounds brilliant – I’ll have to hunt it down! September did seem to be a longer month than most recently, it was nice though to ease me back into normality after our wedding this summer! x

  5. Jordan says:

  12. The Manuka honey moisturiser sounds great. Also, interesting about the hangover setting spray, never tried that one. Thanks for sharing. <3 /Madison x

  13. Ana says:

    The Cherry Blossom yankee candle looks divine! I don’t think I’ve ever come across it before in store otherwise I would have snatched it up – i didn’t even know it existed haha xx

    Great post hun 🙂

    Lots of love,

  14. so many amazing products, I really want to try Soph’s highlighting palette, it looks incredible! xx

  15. Alice says:

    I’ve heard so many good things about the L’oreal mascara but I’m too loyal to my Lash Sensational to try any others at the minute! I also popped into B&M and really didn’t like the essence candle scents which is such a shame as they look so pretty and expensive don’t they!? I wish they did a more spicy one! And I’m also in love with the Vanilla Pumpkin from The Body Shop, the shower gel is soo creamy and lush!

    • luxuryblush says:

      The Lash Sensational mascara is a good one, but this one is creeping up there too haha! So glad it isn’t just me that doesn’t like them, a spicy one would have been a lot better, and the packaging on them is beautiful! It’s such a gorgeous scent and the shower gel is fab xx

  16. Courtney Gardiner says:

    I adore the soph palette and hangover spray, like you I also prefer the actual primer for my base. I use the spray as more of a Mac fix+ replacement, and as a step in my skincare routine!

    • luxuryblush says:

      Soph definitely got the palette spot on! Yeah, it doesn’t seem like a stable enough primer, but it’s perfect for a Mac fix+ replacement, and that’s a great way of using it xx

  17. Jenny says:

    I’ve heard good things about Ikea candles and will have to check them out the next time I’m there – they really do have some great items for around the house for great prices! The The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin range sounds amazing – I usually don’t like pumpkin scents either but I love vanilla so hopefully they balance out!

    • luxuryblush says:

      I had a blue one from there before and wasn’t keen, but the vanilla ones are fab! They really do, and everything is so affordable. It is a really great range and the scents seem to really balance each other out which is great xx

  18. Mica says:

    A big yes to the vanilla scented candle! i’m always picking one up when I’m in Ikea, haha !I love vanilla scent. Actually most of my candles are food based scents, it’s my usual go-to for a scented candle! 🙂

    The pumpkin and vanilla wash sounds interesting – will have to have a sniff next time I’m passing the Body shop, haha!

    Hope you are having a lovely week.

    Loved reading about your favourites. That cherry blossom candle sounds incredible! 🙂 xx

  24. Ellie says:

    I’m loving the look of everything in this post! Especially the highlighter palette vanilla pumpkin shower gel! I didn’t think I would really like the pumpkin scents either but I recently got a Pumpkin Spice candle from TK Maxx and I’m obsessed with it so now I want everything smelling the same but I can’t find anything! It’s so annoying I won’t even burn the candle coz I can’t find a back up one!

  25. Sara says:

    The L’Oreal mascara really is incredible! I’d love to try a few bits from the Vanilla Pumpkin range from TBS, it just sounds like it would smell amazing!

  28. I haven’t heard of the palette before but it looks so gorgeous. The colours are reallt pretty! I just bought the NYX dewy setting spray and really like it so far. I’ve not tried any others including the one you have.

    Lovely post!

  29. I really want to try this range from The Body Shop as I’ve seen quite a few people talking about it, and I also want to try this Too Faced setting spray! Loved this post and you’ve persuaded me even more! <3

  30. Cindy says:

    The hangover primer mist sounds so intriguing! I’m so ready for it to be Fall aka candle burning season. I’ve had candles basically burning 24/7 while I’m home. I like to buy some cheap unscented candles from Ikea so I can have more lit for ambiance while I have a higher end one burning and giving a light scent to my apartment!

  31. Britney says:

    That highlighting palette looks awesome. So does the Vanilla Pumpkin shower gel. It sounds like it smells yummy, and I like The Body Shop.

  32. Emily says:

    This is a brilliant monthly favourites! Candles are definitely big for me this month too – especially now it’s colder and darker, they really add to the cosy atmosphere!

    Musings & More

  33. Joyce says:

    The only thing I’ve tried from here is the mascar which didn’t work out for me since it actually weighed down my lashes instead. I’ve forgotten to do my favourites this month. Woops

  34. Robyn says:

    I’m enjoying a lot of the same things ! I really want to try tht highlight palette though – the purple shades just attract me !

  35. Agnese says:

    A lot of these products have been on my wishlist and I think you’re about to be the reason why my bank account hates me <3

    Lots of love,

  36. Heidi says:

    Oh, the Vanilla Pumpkin! That scent is just so amazing. I might go and buy some IKEA candles if they spread the scent that well! I hate it when I buy scented candles and I can’t actually smell it when I’m burning it.

      The Vanilla Pumpkin range is amazing, it smells so good! I love the Vanilla Ikea candles, as I had a blue one from there that didn’t spread the scent, but the vanilla one is fab!xx

  39. Natalie says:

    Oh my goodness, that highlighter is so stunning! I didn’t realise they had released a whole palette.

  40. Marina Rosie says:

    Does going through your blog and rereading all of the posts count as stalking? This post was so good Hannah – I love the Too Faced hangover primer, meaning that I should probably go ahead and try the setting spray! x Yankee candles are my faves – I’ve always got one going when I’m working on a post! x
    Marina xx

    • luxuryblush says:

      haha definitely not! Thank you so much, I’m glad you think so! The setting spray is amazing, it’s great that you don’t have to use any other sprays with it. That’s a good idea, it’s always great to have a candle burning, especially when they smell amazing!xx
