Monthly Favourites | September


Ahh it's so good to be back posting about my monthly favourites! For the past couple of months I haven't done one of these posts as I've been so busy and even trying to think about what I'd been loving and using over the past month, let alone writing about it seemed like hard work. However, I'm now a full time blogger (YAY!) so that means I have a lot more time on my hands and I can make sure these are a regular monthly feature again.

I've switched up my makeup routine recently and started experimenting a bit more with new colours and formulas and whilst doing this, I've found some total gems! Firstly, my go-to base for the past couple of months now has been the Rodial Skin Tint+* in the shade 'St.Barths'. It's a little bit darker than my natural skin tone but I actually really like that as it tans up my complexion without looking orange or too obvious. It's also the perfect match when I'm wearing fake tan. I'm also in love with the formula of this product - it's not often I find a base that I completely love but I really can't fault this one. It has a lovely dewy finish and the coverage is great without being too heavy. It just makes my skin look 10x more radiant than it does when I'm not wearing it and I also find it smooths out any imperfections and covers redness really nicely. It's a little bit pricey at £ but it's definitely worth it as I haven't felt the need to use any other products on my skin since I got this.


Another thing I've been embracing more recently is the 'my lips but better' look. I usually go for bold lipsticks but I've been trying to tone it down for a day to day look and have really been enjoying using my MAC Twig lipstick. It's a beautiful pinky brown shade which I find enhances my natural lip colour perfectly. I also love the Satin finish as it's really pigmented but still feels moisturising on the lips.


A couple more makeup bits I've been using on a daily basis for the past couple of months are the Bare Minerals Lash Domination mascara* and the Bourjois 'Gold Bronzing Powder'. These are both items I've had in my beauty collection for a while but I was using other products and they got a bit neglected. However, after switching things up, they made their way into my makeup bag and I'm so glad they did as I love them both. The mascara is amazing - the wand is twisted meaning it curves around all of the lashes and ensures they're all coated with the product. It really thickens and lengthens both my top and bottom lashes which is exactly what I want from a mascara.


Finally, Calvin Klein's new 'Eternity Now' perfume* has been my go-to scent for the past few weeks. I have so many different fragrances that I've collected over the years but I have to say, this one has already become one of my favourite scents ever. It's sweet and fruity with top notes of juicy nectarine, lychee and quince sorbet but it isn't sickly or overpowering. I'd describe it as fresh, vibrant and feminine. Well worth a sniff if you get the chance!!

So there we have it, the products I've been loving lately! What have you been loving recently?!

  15. Monthly favourites posts are my favourite, I love reading about what other bloggers liked! The brush of the Bare Minerals mascara looks so unique, I can see why it makes the lashes look amazing! The bronzer looks beautiful too, but a bit too shimmery to me!
