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. So much is being planned and after a not so good six months, I finally feel like everything is getting back on track.
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, as there’s something about applying mascara that I don’t like. I want my mascara to need minimal layers and 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, but 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, as you get a real variety. I love gold highlighter, so I have been loving using the gold on the top row which is the third from the left. 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 the year, but this month has been a little candle crazy. I have finally burnt candles that I have been hoarding for a while and have managed to get through some. I know that 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, but it’s 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!
