Monthly Favourite | September

I'm actually really excited to be posting this months favourites because it means I'm heading off on my holidays on Friday. I've welcomed quite a few new items into my collection this month along with rediscovering some old favourites.

MeMeMe Eye Sweep Felt Tip Liner Pen*
I'm really impressed with the felt tip liner, it's so easy to use. It has quite a wet formula which really helps it to glide along the eye. I find that when I'm using this i can achieve a neat line and winged out liner quite effortlessly and it takes me no time at all. It's really pigmented, it doesn't smudge or transfer and it stays in place all day.

Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquer in Sparkling Berry*
I wore this nail polish a lot last Autumn/Winter; it's a really gorgeous berry/wine red and it's so pretty on. It's the perfect autumnal colour and I've really been enjoying wearing it again - it's applies really easily and you can easily get away with one coat to the nail. It also has a really lovely gel shine finish.

Nars Blush in Sin
This is my absolute favourite blush and one that i think is perfect for Autumn time. Sin is a purple toned pink but it's such a gorgeous colour. It's perfect for giving you that rosy winter glow. It's quite pigmented but blends out really beautifully, this is such a luxurious product but i just love how it looks and the shade is so unique to any other shade i own.

Collection Work The Colour Eyebrow Kit in Brunette
It's one of those products that i feel just keeps getting better with every use. The powders have a lovely smooth texture to them and they apply really easily, they are quite pigmented but also really easy to build up if you want a more bold brow. It also comes with a clear mascara - I've currently lost mine which is really annoying me because it's so good at grooming the brow and setting the hairs in place.

Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Delicious
I actually picked this lipstick up after i wrote my post about all the ones I'd picked up (see here) but this has got to be my favourite. Delicious is a gorgeous pink shade; it's one of those colours that's perfect for both everyday wear and for dressing up a make up look. It reminds me a lot of Mac's Creme Cup but slightly more pink. The lipstick itself has a really lovely creamy formula and which is nice and moisturising on the lips, their pigmented and last pretty well.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Fatal Red
This is bit of a cheat as I've only worn it a handful of times but it's just so beautiful that it deserves to be mentioned. My blog is no stranger to my love of the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks, they're really creamy lipsticks and have amazing lasting power and pigmentation. Fatal Red is a true red shade and it's gorgeous- whenever I've been wearing this I've dabbed it with a tissue to lessen the intensity but it still gives a gorgeous red lip.

Avon Sleep Therapy Good Night Pillow Mist
I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping and having some really restless nights sleep. I forgot i had this pillow mist and i don't know if it's a coincidence or what but since I've been spraying this onto my pillows I've had much better night sleeps. Its scented with lavender which i think is what is helping to relax me. I'm still waking in the night but not as much as i have been and I've been sleeping a lot better too.

Chicago PD
I've been really enjoying watching Chicago PD recently; it's follows the intelligence unit in Chicago's Police department as they major crimes such a drug trafficking and high profile murders. It's a slightly different to the usual police drama shows as the boss Sgt Hank Voight isn't against bending the rules. It took me a little while to get into the show but once i did i started to really enjoy it and I'm looking forward to the new season which should be starting soon.

Alice in Wonderland Loose Leaf Tea
My friend got me a gorgeous loose leaf tea set for my birthday consisted on Morning Tea, Afternoon Tea and Earl Grey. I tried it out, enjoyed it and then never got round to using it again until recently. Now I've not tried the earl grey but I've really been enjoying the Morning Tea and Afternoon Tea, i can't explain the taste or difference to normal tea but it's so nice and I'm going to be really sad when i run out.

Handing my Notice in
I have finally quit my job. I'm planning on doing a life lately post soon so I'll explain it a lot more there about what's going and whats happening next but I've been wanting to leave for quite a while as it was just making me really miserable and I'm so glad that thing have fallen into place to finally allow me to leave.

So those are my monthly favourites, what have you been loving this month?

  1. Lovely favorites! I've always wanted to try other shades of the Nars blushes besides Orgasm, and Sin sounds like a great shade!


    1. I wasn't a big fan of Orgasm when i swatched it, the gold shimmer in it was just too much!
