September has been a great month for both the blog and beauty finds. I have found some great little gems this month and I thought I'd share them with you in another 'Monthly Favourites' feature. I love writing these. Here are my September loves…
I recently managed to give one of these beauty blenders a home. And I was surprised to find that it improved my foundation application a whole lot more then it did a brush. Those pesky little dry patches that I was struggling with around the nose etc went a whole lot more smoothly then the usual routine. It has a particularly nifty pointed tip that is great for applying concealer/ foundation in the smaller areas of your face like around the eyes or along the nose. It honestly gives you a flawless look that looks like your skin but better. I don't think I can put this sponge down now. Its in the make up bag.
Benefit 'Its Potent' Eye Cream
With a lot of eye creams I find they don't moisturise the skin around my eyes enough. I love rich, moisturising eye creams that make my skin feel and look healthy, glowing and refreshed. You could say I am very fussy when it comes to eye creams. But recently I had the pleasure of testing out Benefits 'Its Potent' Eye cream and I was surprised to find that I liked it. A lot. The formula is light and cooling to the skin of the eyes. Its nice to feel that you can actually feel this product sink right into your skin. And to top it all off, I feel the skin around my eyes feels more bouncy and alive. It throws tired looking eyes away for a nice healthy look.
Urban Decay 'Naked Basics' Palette
This palette has been featured everywhere. No need for me to brag about this little one. Its already been done. But I have recently made a new discovery with this palette. Low and behold this palette still seems to surprise me. I have managed to turn this into the perfect product for brows. With this palette I can easily create a shade to match my hair colour. Its a bit of a miracle discovery but it was a happy find. These matte shades are very pigmented, buttery and are far from chalky. They sit well and in the brows, they don't budge. Its a double investment with this palette. Just think - Lids and brows...
Mac 'Plumful' Lipstick
I have made no secret of it, I am going through a plums lipstick phase. But this is definitely the queen bee of all plum lipsticks. Its just stunning. The shade is a rich plum toned lustre with hints of red/ pink undertones. It is a truly fascinating colour. Whilst Lustres can be quite sheer, it is easily buildable, so you can go with a bold injection of colour or a sheer wash depending on what your in the mood for on the day. This lipstick holds the essence of autumn within it. If your in the mood for a new lipstick - Please try this…
Revlon Click Eyeshadows 'Cocoa & Satin'
Since we are coming into Autumn, I have been using these two shades a whole lot more. Together they create the most beautiful smokey eye. Its this kind of season where I love the warm chocolate brown and rich satin shades. I just find they are perfect for Autumn. Revlon have created this nifty click system that allows you to buy a lot of mono shades and slot them together to create a mini palette. Together its a gorgeous pair that has accompanied my look at many of the blogger events this month. Ooh la la.
Whats your ultimate beauty product this September?
