My September Favourites

Tuesday, 4 October 2011

I love doing favourites each month, because it means I usually reflect on what products I have been using in the last month and gives me an idea of what I tend to use more often.
1. MUA Professional Heaven & Earth Palette
 Yes this palette lives up to the hype- it is just as gorgeous as everyone claims it to be. It has every neutral shade I would want and all the shades are very pigmented!

2. NARS Cream Blush in Cactus Flower
 I actually purchased this from a blog sale not too long ago and I absolutely love it! It is so easy to blend. I find that some cream blushes can be a little drying but this one is just perfect! It is a poppy red with gold shimmer and looks so beautiful on slightly tanned skin.

3. MAC Studio Fix Powder
 This has got to be an all time favourite face product. I love using this to set my face make up because it doesn't cake up and it makes my skin look flawless. I am an NW30 which matches me perfectly.

4. E.L.F Mineral Booster in Sheer
This is usually used for all over the face as a setting powder but I use it solely for setting my under eye concealer. Having oily skin means that concealer under my eye area tends to crease sometimes but when I use this powder, not only does it stop that from happening, it also brightens the area too. I could not use a concealer without this product. It is perfect for me.

5. Topshop Cream Blusher in High Five
In the last month or so I have been using a lot of cream blushes and this is actually a fairly new purchase. This is also a really creamy blush that glides on and blends effortlessly.

6. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Airy Fairy
 I had been neglecting this lipstick for a long time. I actually bought it from Ebay some time back because it isn't available in the UK. I have struggled to find the perfect pink lipstick for my skin tone. This, without a doubt, is it. I don't know why I never wore it much before. Recently, I started wearing it again and find myself reaching for it almost every day! It is a gorgeous, subtle pink shade which I think would flatter almost any skin tone.

I am hoping to start up another blog, mainly which will consist of posts about home decorating, a little about my personal life- more of a general blog. Would you be interested in that?

What are your favourite's for last month?
