September Favourites

You may have noticed that I didn't write an August Favourites for all you, this was because I didn't really use too many products and as I have mentioned a few times now, my laptop broke meaning I wasn't able to write an posts for all of you.
Anyway, today I am going to be telling you about my September favourites and also some from August :)

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo LINK
This is one of the most blogged and reviewed skincare products available at the moment. I finally gave it a chance and I'm glad I did! I have been using this as my night moisturiser. You can use this as a spot treatment rather than a moisturiser and either way I could see a difference in my skin!
Soap & Glory Bright Here Bright Now LINK
Recently Soap & Glory sent me this and one other product, I didn't know I was going to be receiving either of these products meaning Soap & Glory aren't asking me to write this and it is my own honest opinion. I have been mixing some of this with my other moisturiser before I apply my makeup and I really like the effect it gives! It gives your skin a very subtle glow without looking too shiny and just gives your skin a little more life even after setting your makeup :)
Estée Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover Lotion LINK
A couple of months ago John Lewis had an offer for if you buy two items you receive a free makeup bag full of products worth £60. Inside there was a 30ml tube of their new makeup remover lotion which I believe is replacing their 'Total' makeup remover. I was really struggling to find a makeup remover that I really enjoyed using and starting using the same micellar water that I use for my eye make-up on my face aswell but I didn't like the feeling of it on my skin and I didn't feel like it was removing all of my foundation. I tried this out everyday and I really liked it! I felt like it removed all my makeup with only a little left for my cleanser to remove afterwards!
Estée Lauder Eyeshadow Duo 'Raisins' LINK
I have had my eye on this eyeshadow duo for a while now but I couldn't justify spending £23 on two eyeshadows. However, when I found out this specific shade was being discontinued so I knew I had to pick it up before I missed my chance like with the EL Gelee Blush! In September I have been using the shade on the left which is a really nice peach shade with some gold shimmer which is perfect for everyday or if you wanted to wear a brighter lipstick and don't want too much focus on your eyes. The pigmentation, texture and lasting powder justify the £23 so that you know you are getting your moneys worth! If you can find this then definitely pick it up :)

MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush LINK
For my birthday this year I received a £15 MAC gift card from two friends and I finally decided to pick up the 239 brush just after I purchased the EL Raisins Duo. I feel that although £20 for one makeup brush is expensive but with the quality you get with these brushes then it is definitely worth it! I feel like this blends any harsh lines seamlessly as well as applying eyeshadow effortlessly as well as giving you the amount of pigmentation you are looking for

Sleek Blush '926 Rose Gold' LINK
This was my go to blush for the last couple of months and it has an amount of pigmentation that you would not believe. For a highstreet/drugstore blush under £5, this is as pigmented as a blush from high end cosmetics. To add a hint of colour to your cheeks with some subtle shimmer I definitely recommend you try this blush if you get the chance!
Bourjous Color Boost Lip Crayon '03 Peach On The Beach' LINK
It seems like a lot of cosmetic brands are jumping onto the chubby stick bandwagon recently and the ones available from Bourjois are the only ones that caught my eye and I really wanted to try out. I have been using their peach/pink shade since I purchased it and I'm glad I picked these up. They have great pigmentation and formula whilst being moisturising on the lips but staying power depends on how much you will be eating/drinking whilst you are wearing this

17 Wild Metallics Eyes Cream Eyeshadow 'Wild Nude' LINK
A lot of brands are also following in the footsteps of Maybelline since they released their Colour Tattoos. I really liked this shade from 17 and for £3.99 you can't say no! The first day I tried this I was shocked by how creamy and pigmented this was, if you are looking for a cream eyeshadow but want to pay a little less than the price of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos then I would definitely recommend the 17 cream eyeshadows :)

Topshop Peach Knitted Quilted Jumper LINK
Lastly, I have really liked wearing this jumper from Topshop. There is stitching detail which creates a quilted effect but still having the warmth and material of a normal jumper. I have liked wearing this with another top underneath and poking the collar out as it gives a still fashionable look whilst still keeping with winter clothing.

What have you been loving throughout September?
