Yet again, another month that has flown by! September is probably my favourite month of the year, as we say goodbye to summer and look forward to snuggling up with winter. I got to visit Paris for the first time this month and also had a little trip to Brighton, so I’ve had an action packed September.
So here’s what I’ve been loving this month:
Essie – Nail Polish in Fiji & Mint Candy Apple
I tried Essie nail polish for the first time a couple of months ago, when I first purchased Essie’s ‘Fiji’. It’s a soft pretty pink that’s really girly. For the first time in my life, I actually used a whole nail polish until it was empty. I normally buy a colour, use it for a while, then it gets replaced with a new colour when I get bored. But I loved Fiji so much that I couldn’t get it off my nails! So this Fiji is a brand new bottle, bought along with Essie’s ‘Mint Candy Apple’. I didn’t think I could find a colour I loved as much as ‘Fiji’ but ‘Mint Candy Apple’ comes really close. It’s a soft minty green and I have had so many compliments.
Essie Nail Polish £7.99
Sephora – Shimmering Bronzing Powder in Medium
I picked up this Sephora bronzer when I visited Paris this September. I loved the warmth of the shades and the compact also includes a mirror in the lid. I had been waiting to try out some Sephora products for a while, so picked up a few different bits, but I especially love how natural this bronzer looks.
Sephora Shimmering Bronzing Powder 14.50 €
Be a Bombshell Cosmetics – Eyeliner in Onyx
I had this felt tip style eyeliner from Be a Bombshell in my September Glossybox. I have been using gel eyeliner with a brush for a while, so was keen to try the pen style eyeliners again. This one is great, as it applies a clean smooth line and dries quickly. It doesn’t smudge or move all day, and comes off with one sweep of makeup remover.
Be a Bombshell Eyeliner $14
Mac – Eye Shadow in Shroom (Satin)
I love Mac eye shadows. They have great pigmentation, minimal fall out and seem to last forever. I love a light eye shadow shade, so thought I would try something a bit shimmery this time. It’s similar to Mac’s Naked Lunch, but is a gorgeous mushroom colour. It can be blended with any colour, but looks especially nice with a dark brown.
Mac Eye Shadow £12.50
Soap & Glory – Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Bashful
I included the Soap & Glory Gloss Stick in ‘Raplumzel’ in my August favourites, but I have been using the shade ‘Bashful’ a little more this month. ‘Bashful’ is a sugary sweet candy pink, but looks really natural when applied lightly. These Gloss sticks from Soap and Glory are so easy to apply, and I love how hydrating they make your lips feel. When I am brave enough I will purchase the bright red shade!
Soap and Glory Gloss Stick £8.00
Rimmel – Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory
My collection 200 concealer had become a little too dark for my skin tone, so I decided to try out a different concealer. I have the Rimmel ‘Wake Me Up’ foundation which works great, so I decided to try out the concealer. It’s really moisturising and gives a lovely glow to your skin. It’s quick and easy to apply and blends in well with a fluffy brush.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer £5.49
Lucky Charms Cereal Pot
I thought I would add in this cheeky little pot of Lucky Charms to my September favourites, as September is my birthday month. Every birthday I get given one of these pots which I indulge on the morning of my birthday! I would happily eat this cereal every single day but my teeth would probably fall out. I look forward to my next bowl next year!
Lucky Charms Cereal Pot £1.50
