♡ September Favorites

October 04, 2013

September has felt like such a long month, probably because I can hardly believe that just over two weeks ago I was sunbathing at the beach in Mallorca. The Autumnal weather we've been experiencing recently makes summer feel like such a long time ago, though as much as letting go of summer is always difficult, I do love Autumn and the build up to Christmas. 

1. L'Oreal EverRiche Nourishing and Taming Shampoo and Conditioner
Quite possibly my new favorite Shampoo and Conditioner. They smell amazing and work wonderfully. Since using these my hair has felt so soft and nourished and looked a lot smoother. My conscience has felt a bit better too as they don't contain any sulphates. For only £5.99 a bottle you can't really go wrong.

2. Kiko Stick Eyeshadow in 06
After buying this in Palma whilst on holiday I haven't felt like wearing much else on my eyes. It looks beautiful swiped across the entire lid then blended out with fingers. It's the perfect choice for mornings when I want something fast and simple, yet also long lasting.

3. Nars Laguna Bronzer
So since I went on holiday at the beginning of the month this has been a bit of a life saver. I tend to tan quite quickly when i'm out in the sun but it never lasts long. Rather than buy a whole new shade of foundation that i'll only be able to use for a few weeks i've just been dusting some bronzer over my entire face to even things out a bit. Though Laguna contains a little bit of shimmer it doesn't really translate onto the skin so its perfect for adding a golden glow without looking like a disco ball!

4. Jouer Matte Moisture Tint
When I first purchased this I wasn't too impressed (you can read my initial review here). The shade porcelain, despite being the palest one available was a little to dark for my super pale skin so it ended up looking patchy. Now that my skin is a bit tanned I thought I would give it another go. I've been using it for the past two weeks now and i'm completely in love. It no longer looks at all patchy but melts into my skin creating quite a flawless finish. For a tinted moisturiser its got pretty good coverage, though the lasting power still isn't quite there. With a bit of help from a setting spray and dusting of powder it isn't too bad though. I'm not sure how i'll get on with it once my skin returns to its milky white hue but for now I've been reaching for it daily.

5. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
I own quite a few RT brushes and love them all so it's no surprise that the expert face brush found it's way into my basket on a resent browse of the boots aisles (blame the 'buy one get one half price' offer!). I've been using this daily to apply cream blush and it makes the whole thing seem so effortless. I'm sure this won't be my last RT purchase!

  4. I'm glad it's note just me who finds the Porcelain shade of the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint too dark still, they could do with bringing out an Alabaster shade!

  15. That RT expert face brush has been getting a ton of use on my end too... I love it for applying base makeup!

  16. I've heard so much about the L'Oreal Ever Riche shampoo and conditioner, as well as Kiko's shadow sticks. I've only ever tried Kiko's nail polishes which are great.

    The Expert Face Brush has got to be one of the best. What did everyone use before it? I hate those flat foundation brushes as they never quite seemed to blend everything in properly.

    I really like that ornate makeup brush holder in the background.
