September Favourites

This is my first favourites post of the year, oops. Bad blogger alert! I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone though, it's October this week this is crazy. This time last year I was limping around after partially tearing a ligament in my knee, I can now walk properly again and I'm so close to playing sport again, how time flies. Anyway, back to the favourites..

I love reading favourites posts as much as I love writing them. They are probably the best post to read, I just like seeing what everyone else is loving and finding new products to buy; sorry bank balance! This month I've been using a lot of new products, but I actually haven't bought anything new! I've been using everything from my beauty haul back in August, and rediscovering products I'd completely forgotten about!

First up is the Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements Palette* I have owned this palette for so long, but it's just been hidden away in my stash. Earlier this month I found my love for matte eyeshadows so frantically went searching for more matte palettes and dug out this one! It contains 11 mattes and 1 shimmer highlight shade, which has been perfect to create all the matte looks I've wanted over the past month. This will be reviewed in full with swatches, so I'll keep you posted! 

My foundation of the month has been Glo & Ray's Nebulae Foundation* which I reviewed yesterday, so I won't go on about it, but you can read the full review here. I am awful at just wearing the same nail polish 24/7 so I picked up some new ones and I am loving Barry M's Pomegranate from their Gelly Range, it is so different to the deeper berry shades I'd currently be wearing but I just can't get enough of it. Again with lip shades, I always end up wearing deep berry shades, so I ventured out in my stash and picked out the Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Hawaiian Smolder*. It is so easy to apply, dries matte on the lips but is so moisturising and lasts so long. I'd describe it as a traditional deep pink shade, as it's not in your face like a hot pink, and it's so wearable for an everyday look.

The next two products are both from Seventeen which is a brand I've just been introduced to, and I'm yet to find a product I don't like! This month's favourites have been the  Seventeen Stay Time Concealer and the Seventeen Skin Wow Primer*. The concealer is probably one of the best that I've tried, it blends flawlessly and doesn't crease at all which makes it perfect for under the eyes. I have the lightest shade which is great for my pale skin too, I am so used to drugstore concealers being too dark so it was nice to find a lighter offering. The Skin Wow Primer is a 3 way highlighter which you can use mixed with your foundation, as a base primer or as a highlight. I have mainly been using it on my cheekbones as a highlight as it gives such a gorgeous glow. I'd never tried a liquid highlighter but this has opened my eyes to the liquid world and I am in love, it applies so naturally and isn't too over the top.

It's feels so good to be back with the favourites posts, and hopefully I'll keep them up for the rest of the year! We all know A/W favourites are the best anyway!
