Well hello to you my reader chums! September flew right past and autumn was at our feet before we knew it. For me the past few weeks have been very busy filled with celebrations, last minute summer fun and preparations for the autumn months (aka a lot of clothes shopping). I didn't really try out any new products throughout the month, yet fell back in love with a few of all my old gems that I wanted to share with you.
Here are my monthly favourites:
Here are my monthly favourites:
'Brazened Honey' Lush Cosmetics facemask - When the cooler weather hit, my skin tends to break out and becomes a tad more sensitive than in the summer months. Autumn is all about cosiness and a time I like to treat myself more with relaxing baths and facemasks on a regular basis. I recently picked up my holy grail of facemasks, Lush's Brazened Honey when I popped into my local shop. As I collected over 5 pots, I got this one free, which is a complete bonus! I could speak endless good things about this product - Once applied, the scent lingers throughout the room and feels completely fresh on the skin. Even though the exfoliant is tough, it's not harsh on the skin at all so helps washes away any excess dirt or makeup, leaving the skin fresh, smooth and revitalised. The pot I would say can make around 6-8 masks, depending on how thick you layer them up. It's the perfect option to go for if you have normal to oily and sensitive skin like me as it's not overly perfumed.
L'oreal's Infallible primer - The L'oreal primer has been an obsession of mine for a good few months now but I feel like it deserves a shout out again this month. With the weather changing from baking hot summer days to rainy, windy autumn, this primer ensures long lasting makeup whatever the season. When we had sweltering days in September, my face still managed to cling onto the makeup using this beauty as with rainy periods. The consistency is gel like, it sinks into the skin like a dream and guarantees makeup wear all day long, I cannot fault it! An 100% recommendation for those with normal to oily skin.
Sleek's Solstice highlighting palette - Hyped and adored by the whole beauty blogging community, Sleek's famous rose gold palette has stolen every body's hearts. Over the past few weeks, I've rediscovered this beauty and have been using it on a daily basis. For that extra shimmery highlight I love to use the cream based shade on the tops of my cheekbones, brow and cupids bow then dust the pink colour over the top; it's divine. The 4 shades are completely versatile, used for a subtle everyday look or glamorous night out!
Maybelline's Lash Sensational mascara - I've hyped about this mascara for the longest time and still haven't gone back to a different one since discovering it! I wanted to give it an extra shout out this month as I've been wearing a very minimal eye makeup look lately with a touch of eye shadow across the upper lash line and couple coats of mascara. I'm not exaggerating when I say, it's the only mascara I've tried which genuinely holds a curl, lasts all day and lengthens my lashes. A 100% recommend.
Nyx's lip matte cream in 'Cannes' - I'm pretty sure I've featured this product in a favourites before and sung its praises in a recent review, but I'm completely in love. When I want to step up the nude lip game, this lipstick is my got to. The colour is a dark, dusky pink; an absolute dream on the lips. Application is very creamy yet when set, it becomes matte and is very long lasting through eating plus drinking. I definitely need to get my hands on a few more of this fabulous collection! The matte lip creams are a true winner for those who adore matte lip products like me.
I hope you enjoyed my September favourites. Which products have you been loving this month?
