September really was over like a flash and now it's the 1st of October; how did that happen?! 2015 seems to be going by way too quickly, I guess that is what happens as you get older (eek!).
Beauty wise, I bought some new products in September but also rediscovered, or should we say reignited my love for some older products as well. Here were my favourite products for the month....
I love this fake tan. It is the express version which means you can leave it on for only 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium tan and 3 hours for a dark tan. I never have the time for tan these days so this product has been such a help to me. I usually leave it on for the 3 hours to get the most colour (I also leave it on overnight if I want to be really tanned). The colour is nice and olive toned and it last for a decent amount of time as well.
I bought this pretty pink blush in September mainly because Kim K's make up artist Mario Dedivanovic uses this on her. The colour is the perfect pink shade with just a hint of a peachy warmth to it. It give my cheeks that lovely flushed look and I have used it everyday since I got it. It is expensive but worth it!
I have owned this little eyeshadow quad for a while but started using it again this month. I can't say enough good things about this palette. The nude/natural colours are perfect for everyday yet the subtle shimmer in the shadows make them so beautiful on the eyes. The shadows are buttery soft, pigmented and blend like a dream! It's such a handy little eyeshadow palette to keep in your make up bag and so inexpensive. This is great quality so I would definitely recommend you check this one out.
This is an under eye brighter/concealer which has yellow undertones and light reflecting particles to banish dark circles. I was really impressed why the brighting effect this has. I also love the formula; for some reason I find it really cooling and soothing (this may be my mind playing tricks on me), it just feels so lovely when you apply it and blend it out.
Maple Holistics are an organic and natural brand which sent me some hair care and skin care products to try out. As a little extra they included this Acai Berry Lip Balm, which was so nice of them. Being a lip balm addict, this suited me just fine. This natural balm is so lovely! Firstly it smells nice and fruity (almost a fizzy refreshers smell) but secondly it hydrates and nourishes my lips really well and keeps them that way for hours on end. It has been on my desk at work constantly since it arrived.
I had been wanting to getting my hands on the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks for ages so when I saw Beauty Bay stocked them I had to get some. One of the colour I got was Buttercup which is a nude pink. This has a lovely creamy texture and finish; the colour is so wearable and literally goes with any make up look. I find it very similar to MAC's Hue or Patisserie. I wore this lipstick so much during September, it's definitely now a staple for me.
I got this perfume for my Christmas last year, I think. It is the fruitier limited edition version of the original Jimmy Choo fragrance. This is very sweet and very fruity, which I personally love. I have been reaching for this a lot more recently and every time I wear it someone usually asks what perfume I'm wearing. If you like the original Jimmy Choo perfume or like sweeter scents then you will definitely like this.
These are my top picks for September. Now I'm excited for October and for autumn time. Let me know below what products you have been loving :)
