September Favourites!

Hello again!

Todays post is purely dedicated to my favourites of September with a few from August that I forgot to write about!

Starting with beauty, I have managed to find a high street foundation with good coverage and is long lasting, whilst still suitable for my porcelain skin tone- its the Revlon Colourstay foundation in the shade 110 Ivory. Usually with any other brand, Ivory would be way too dark for me. I stumbled across this foundation after having my make-up done at the No.7 counter in Boots, and being unable to find a foundation for my skin tone, the make-up artist suggested I try this foundation. All I can say is that I love it, its a little less coverage than my MAC Studio Fix Fluid, and whilst it doesn't last as long at the MAC one, its perfect for a no-makeup make-up look when you are having a good skin day.

If you read my post about my Chanel lipstick purchase, this next item may interest you. When I went to London I started using the Soap and Glory Brow Tint and Precision shaping in the colour Brownie Points. The reason I am redirecting you to the Chanel post is I used the product, and it made my eyebrows look so much more alive than what they do naturally. The colour is slightly too light for me, as my eyebrows naturally are similar to a taupe-y shade, however using more of the ink side as apposed to the pencil side gives me the colour I like.

So ages ago I mentioned I hated this product, and then I fell in love with it, its the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker gloss stick in Nudist. All through September this has been my go to  nude lip product, and I don't really have anything else to say on it!

Urban Decay released their Pulp Fiction collection late August/early September, and I absolutely love it, purchasing everything bar the nail polish (post coming soon!) and one thing I have particularly been loving is the eye shadow palette. As a fan of a smokey eye, this palette is great for creating a really easy smokey eye look. Tyranny is my favourite colour in the palette purely for its terracotta/red toned base. For people with blue eyes, red toned eye colours are good at making your eyes pop, and this is the colour that I have been using the most in the palette.

The other day I was walking through Next, when I was given  a sample of one of their perfumes Midnight, and oh my goodness, the smell is heaven. I am usually not a fan of really strong scented perfumes, and tend to go for more floral and fruity smells. However this perfume (as shown on the cardboard) has tones of orange/mandarin and sandalwood, two of my most favourite smells in the whole world. As mentioned, I only got the sample, however I will be purchasing a full size bottle soon.

Lastly, but certainly not least, I have been loving drinking hot drinks throughout September, these being either Hot Chocolate with Hazelnut syrup- tasting just like Kinder Bueno. The other being a fruit tea from Asda, which I have been drinking more to help my voice. The flavours of the tea are Lemon, Mango and Ginger, and is a good alternative to Lemon and Honey, which I cant drink due to a silly lavender allergy.

That's all for today- see you soon!
