I warn you now, I have a lot of favourites to share.
August may have been over a little quickly for my taste...it feels like I blinked
and bam we are in September but on the plus side I have tested lots of wonderful products
which have firmly wormed their way into my affections!
Dr Jart Water Fuse BB Cream - Although a little too light in terms of colour own it's own for my skin tone
this is the daddy of all BB Creams (well the ones I have tried up until now that is).
I mix one small blob in with my usual foundation to warm up the shade and use it on "errand" days
when I don't really feel the need for a full face of make-up.
I can't recommend the Dr Jart BB creams enough!
YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat - I have nothing but love for this product it is by far one of the best
foundations to have come out of 2012. It offers great coverage yet isn't heavy or mask like
and works well with my oily skin. If you are in the market for a new foundation I suggest going to
your local YSL counter and ask for a sample...you may end up smitten too!
Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in Radiant Rose - I'm very much a Benefit gal
when it comes to liquid/cream highlighters but Rimmel have come up trumps with their newest addition
to the Wake Me Up franchise. I particularly enjoy the Radiant Rose version and have worn it pretty
much religiously on my cheek bones as my highlight since purchasing.
Clearasil Vitamins and Extracts 2-in1 Wash and Mask - I have pretty much sang this products praises
since receiving this, I have also bought both my sisters a bottle to use as I really do rate it highly.
I tend to use this mostly as a face wash as it is really gentle yet cleanses effectively,
however as a mask it cleanses deep down and not only helps to cleanse but clear the skin from blemishes too. If you live in the UK this is currently on offer in Morrisons with 1/3 off the R.R.P
REN Radiance Perfecting Serum - Apart from wishing for clear skin one of my other skin care
wishes would be to have beautiful radiant skin rather than experiencing dull skin most days.
I have been trailing this for a short period but so far I have found my skin to have more of a glow
and dare I say it not appear quite so drab!
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream - I couldn't count how often I mention this product
but that simply reinforces just how much I adore this eye cream.
It soothes the delicate eye area, heals and hydrates the skin.
I'm actually on my last free tube (magazine freebie) sob, sob but worry thee not as I did
invest in the full size version which I will review properly in the upcoming weeks.
Balmi Lip Balm in Raspberry - I normally avoid berry scented products and favour coconut
or mango fragrances when it comes to flavoured products but my oh my does this smell gorgeous,
in my opinion it smells exactly like Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream!
That aside it is a pretty decent lip balm and thanks to the key fob attached it makes taking it
on your travels pretty darn easy, not to mention it will minimise chances of loosing it too!
Mac Delectable Mattene Lip Stick - If you know me I seldom steer away from peach or coral lip shades,
some may say I'm stuck in a rut which is probably true but I'm happy this way haha!
This is slightly deeper and warmer than my summer choices and despite being a matte finish
it is comfortable to wear and not overly drying.
This was a limited edition a few collections ago but if you do fancy trying it out it will be in one of this months
new collections launching later this week.
Cutex Nourshing Nail Polish Remover - I swear by this polish remover since switching over to this
variation my nails have been less prone to splitting and breakages.
If you suffer from weak nails please do give this a go!
Essie in Cascade Cool - I seldom paint my nails the same shade over and over
but Cascade Cool has swiftly become my to go to nail shade.
It's a pretty balance of purple and pink and is quite flattering against my skin tone.
The kicker is that is a limited edition shade that was part of the summer collection
so it won't be around forever!
Cupcake Cafe Candle in Rainbow Sprinkles - Believe it or not I picked up a few of these little
candles in my local pound shop, they are a complete steal at £1 each!
They smell exactly like vanilla birthday cake and are well scented,
i'm on a diet so these little babies give me a quick sugar rush without any calories.
