As it is now the 8th of October I feel like it is the perfect time to share my September Favourites with you all. I know it's as cliche as it gets but I cannot believe how fast September went! But now in my head, it is officially acceptable to be excited about Christmas... and that I am. Christmas is my favourite time of the year by far; snow, hot chocolate, winter clothes, bed, Christmas films... aaaah yes please!
anyway enough of my childish rambling.. onto the favourites!
|Here they are in all their glory|
Staying on the topic off mattifying products, my current foundation is my next September favourite .Rimmel's 'Stay Matte Mousse' in the colour 100 Ivory is my ultimate holy grail foundation. It offers medium to full coverage which is the first reason why I LOVE it. But also, the mousse texture means it gives a complete matte finish which is my aim in all foundations going back to my oily skin point i made earlier. The only downside is, is the limited amount of shades. I believe that 100 is the palest shade and it isn't that pale, so for all you porcelain girls out there, this foundation may not be for you!
Another of my favourites this month, and ever is Rimmel's Stay Matte powder in the shade 001 Transparent. I SWEAR by this powder, it is my actual life saver. 9 times out of 10 it keeps me shine free all day, but if not, it is always there to rid me of that unwanted pesky oil. My next favourite goes hand in hand with the powder. I use the Bare Minerals Precision Face Brush to pat my powder onto my skin. This brush picks up the perfect amount of product and really pushes it into the skin. As it is angled it can fit into all the nooks of my face like the edges of my nose and under my eyes.
My next favourite is actually my first ever ELF purchase. I was in TK Maxx just looking round the beauty counters and stumbled across this ELF mineral blush in the shade 'PINK'
Keeping with the bargain theme, my next favourite was just that. There is a discounted beauty shop near where I am from which I regularly visit to see if I can pick up any gems for cheaper than their RRP. And I definitely did here. I found a Becca Jewel Dust for just £4. That's right, just £4! The colour makes my brown eyes just pop! It's lovely, go get it you brown eyed girls!
Sticking on the eyeshadow theme, I have been loving the Sleek 594 eye shadow palette. It's full of blues and purples and greens, which is completely out of my comfort zone but I've not looked back since, I'm infatuated by it!
My second lipstick favourite is the ever so famous MAC 'Snob'. I wear this lipstick most days as it is THE perfect daytime pinky-nude colour. I find that it really flatters my skin tone and doesn't wash me out in the slightest. It isn't just for day time either, I wore it for my Sixth-Form Leavers Ball and dressed it up with my eye makeup.
And my final September Favourite is a shower gel.. weird I know but if you could smell it you would totally understand. It is the Original Source Vanilla and Raspberry scent and my word, it smells unbelievable. I actually get excited about the prospect of using it. It smells of a sweet but I can't figure out which one, so go out and buy it and let me know which sweet it smells of in the comments please! (and become obsessed with the scent too!)
That's the end of my September Favourites, I hope you enjoyed this post, and September! Have a lovely night and a lovely October!
