September Favourites

Sunday, 1 October 2017


I'm back! I took a bit of a break from blogging as my life was getting crazy busy. I always promise myself that if I'm not enjoying blogging, I must take a break, otherwise it won't continue to be a hobby, but instead it'll be a chore. However, having been away for a while, it was hard to think of what my first post back should be. I finally settled on my September favourites, as I love sharing these monthly posts and letting you all know what I've been enjoying. September was a very busy month, but I had two weeks off work, so it gave me plenty of opportunities to experiment with and fall in love with new beauty products.

I bought this a month or so ago after someone had recommended The Body Shop serums to me. I had originally gone in for one from their Vitamin E range, but was told they were discontinuing it. Instead, I was shown the Vitamin C Skin Reviver and thought it was worth a try. I have absolutely been loving it. It feels so nice to apply and really helps to make my skin look more healthy and radiant as well as helping my make up to stay in place all day. I can't get enough of it, I'll definitely be going back and buying another one once I finish this one.

I couldn't not feature this in my monthly favourites. My last post was actually a full review of it, so make sure you check that out. I've been reaching for this palette more than any other this month. I love how many different looks I can create with it and I absolutely love the shade range, it's definitely my new favourite palette. I've been really enjoying looking up different make-up looks using this palette on Pinterest and trying them out on myself.

O2 priority had an offer that if you spent over £30 on the Benefit website, you received a free Hoola minis set. The Hoola Quickie Contour Stick came as part of the set and originally I wasn't sure if I'd use it. However, I gave it a try and have been really impressed. I can really see how it adds definition to my cheek bones and it's so easy to use I'm definitely going to purchase the full size once this one runs out.

I featured this product in my Beauty Wishlist post and my friend Sarah saw and mentioned that's she had the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Ombre Mercure, but had found it too sticky on her eyelids so didn't like using it. Therefore, she very kindly gave it to me to see if I would like it. Whilst I do see what she means about the stickiness, for me it only lasts for the initial few minutes of wearing it and then I never notice it on my skin. I love using it, it's super easy to pop onto my eyelids if I'm in a rush and can't be bothered with a full eye make up look.

I don't want to go on too much about this here because I want to write up a full review of this product, but I couldn't not feature this in my September favourites. I bought it whilst I was away as I'd wanted a BECCA highlight palette for a while and never been able to get my hands on it. Everything about it is beautiful and I've been wearing it non stop since I bought it. As I mentioned, I'll do a full review soon, so keep your eyes peeled on that. 

So that's everything I've been loving throughout September, what have you been loving this month?
