September favourites



Just a warning this post is picture heavy as you've probably guessed, but yeah just thought I'd give you a heads up.

Now I missed August favourites just because i was so busy with moving to university and life in general just got in the way. I back on track now and I have A LOT of favourites this month! Prepare yourselves.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Face Cream
I bought this on a whim after seeing it on Nicole Guerriero's YouTube window and it really has done wonders to clear up imprections on my skin.

Maybelline Dream Smooth Primer
I wont this in a blog competition which you can read the full post on >here.< When I first put this on my face it does feel rather oily but it really does work so that's why I love it!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation in ECRU
I went to Boots to get a colour match with this foundation as I knew I wanted it but didn't know my shade. I was eventually matched to the shade Ecru, by Lauren who was the counter girl in the Liverpool Boots, and I couldn't be happier with it! It's an amazing foundation and I will definitely repurchase.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15
I'd heard fab things about this concealer so obvsiouly I had to try it. I love it for highlighting the under eye area or to use as a shadow base.

Rimmel Match Perfection Blush in Light
Nothing had been heard about this blush before I purchased it but I'm glad I did because it creates a really natural colour and flush to the cheeks which for winter i think is perfect for creating the pinched cheek look!

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle
I'd heard so much about this and so I decided to just take the plunge as soon as I had the money and I'm so glad I did. It leaves the perfect shimmer and glow to wherever you place it on your face which is such a flattering feature to have.

Sleek MakeUP Contour Blush and Highlight Palette
Again this was another hyped product and I was actually after the highlight and contour palette but now they only sell the trio which was fine by me but the blush doesn't really suit me. The contour is the perfect tan colour for 'chizzlng' out the cheek bones and the highlight matches it perfectly so I'm really please with this purchase.

MAC Veluxe Eyeshadow in Woodwinked
It was so daunting walking into the eyeshadow section of MAC considering it was my first time, I was on my own and I had no idea what I actually wanted, all I knew is I an eyeshadow and I wanted it to be something I could wear daily or vamp up for the night and this is what I got! Its a shimmery bronze colour that is pferect for day or night and wear really well! 

Barbara Daly Even Smoother Eyeshadow Base
When I first saw this I instantly thought of MAC paint pots. This is like a light concealer that is primarily used as an eyeshadow base. I've done a full review >here.<

Rimmel Monoshadow
I never really venture into Rimmel stands for the eyeshadow but my little sister gave me this and I really have gotten a lot of use from it. It's so pigmented and so long wearing that for the price (i think around £3.99) they're amazing!

L'Oreal Color Riche Disco Smoking Eyeshadow Palette
I love love love this, obviously as it's in my favourites. I recently did a full review if you'd like to read it >here.< It's so wearable and so affordable that you can't really say no!

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me
I love all the Baby Lips that I have but just thought I'd picture one to get the point across. I've reviewed them >here<

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum
Every blogger and their mother has this lipstick and rightly so because it's beautiful. I definitely feel like a barbie when I wear it but it never ever goes unnoticed! I've reviewed it >here.<

Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner
Other than my Maybelline Gel Liner this is my holy grail, it's my baby and I love it. It's so black and goes on to easily that i practically does the cat flick for you. It's only £2.99 and it lasts ages so I'd definitely recommend it and you can read my review >here.<

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Gel in Medium Brown
I haven't yet reviewed this and I don't know why because I love it. I was using Collections clear mascara to set my brows before I found this and Now I will never go back. It has a special wand to watch the shape of your brows and the gel is tinted to match your brow colour. It helps keep my brows set all day so no strays are wandering off from their path!

MAC 217 Eyeshadow Brush
I heard that your life changes when you buy this brush but I never realised to what extent. I feel like I look at pictures of my eye shadow before and its one big unblended mess and now enter the 217 my shadow is perfect! If you have the chance to try this brush TRY IT.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
I always wanted the beauty blender but never could commit myself to pay £16 near enough for a foundation sponge even if they are the be all and end all. I don't know why but i can spend £18 on a brush but I'm uncomfortable with spending £15 on a sponge...So I jumped at the chance of buying a £6 sponge AND from Real Techniques so I knew it would be up to scratch. This blends my make up brilliantly and you can read my full review >here.<

None Beauty Favourites
Song: Drake - Just hold on We're Going home
Food: To be honest I've not been a massive foody this month but I think my favourite has been Egg Noodles in Hoisin and Springe onion Sauce
Drink: Alpro Soya - Chocolate Soya Milk
Clothing: My disco pants have made a firm reappearance!
TV Show: The Walking Dead.

Ok, so that was my September favourites! I know there was a lot but that's because I forgot August haha so it's like a 2 in 1.

I feel like I needed to do a long post anyway since I've been absent but again, I do have a life other than blogging and sometimes it does get in the way.

Hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know your favourites :)
