Monthly Favourites | September

Monthly Favourites | September

I'm doing my September favourite a couple of days earlier than i normally would but were still nearing the end of the month so it's still technically okay! I don't actually have that many favourites as I've literally been sticking to most of the same products but there are a couple of items that I've enjoyed using.



Dove Hair Therapy Leave-In Conditioning & Care Spray
This has been featured in so many people's blogs and vlogs so i was instantly intrigued to try it, i really like this, it makes my hair feel so soft. I mostly use this on my hair when its wet as it really helps to lock in the moisture but if my hair is feeling really dry and like it needs some extra moisture i will use it in between washes too. I really like how this makes my hair feel, its really affordable and it smells nice too!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory
I went on the hunt for a different concealer to try than Collection Lasting Perfection because to be quite blunt i just don't like it, i put a tweet out for some recommendations and a few people mentioned the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer so i decided to pick it up and so far i really like it. It covers my under eyes really well, blends easy and stays in place all day too. I was a bit worried using it on my blemishes what with it being 'wake me up' i thought it might highlight the area more but it actually doesn't, it covers it really well and i much prefer this to the collection one.

MUA Undressed Palette
I've had this for a quite a while now and it's become my everyday palette for work. I didn't want to use one of my more expensive high end ones just for work and i already had this in my collection so I've been using this a lot. This is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette; it's excellent quality, great pigmentation and really long lasting too and the best part is that it's super affordable.

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick in 107
So i jumped on the bandwagon and I'm so glad i did. I love it, it's quite a bold colour but it's a really gorgeous berry red shade and it's just perfect for the autumn/winter season and it's definitely going to be one I'll be reaching for. It has a kind of matte finish but it's really moisturising and is really long lasting too. I'm so happy i decided to pick this up, its just lovely.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch & Cherry Me
I wear these mostly for work; now if your looking for a lip balm that will really hydrate your lips id recommend looking elsewhere but these are really nice to add a pop of colour to the lips without being to over the top. Don't get me wrong these are really nice to wear and do feel nice on the lips but id say these are better for the colour payoff than for being a lip balm. They don't last very long on my lips but i reapply them frequently so i can live with that.

& a couple of non-beauty favourites:

Eyebrow Sugaring
This sounds really strange, but i went to have my eyebrows waxed because they really needed shaping and the place i went actually use a method called sugaring, it's one of the oldest methods and it's basically where they use like a paste and shape it using that (explained that one really well, didnt i?) but anyways, it was quite painful but i apparently have stubborn brows because mine started bleeding and the lady said she had never ever witnessed someones eyebrow bleed from it but i love the results and it's made filling in my eyebrows so much easier and they look so much better - i would definitely recommend trying it as i will definitely be going back to get it done again as i love my brows.

Wedding
 I went to my cousin's wedding yesterday and it was so beautiful it only felt right to include it in my monthly favourites, ive never been to a big wedding before and this was just lovely. Im so grateful to have been able to share their special day with them and to see two people so in love was just so nice - also, the hotel it was in and where we were staying was pretty darn nice!

What are some of your favourites for this month?

  1. How does sugaring work - do they rip it off like a wax? I've never heard of that before - will have to look out for it! Xx
