I'm struggling to wrap my head around the fact it is October.
In no way am I complaining as the Autumn/Winter is my favourite time of the year but my gosh has 2013 went by quickly...scary quickly, a complete cliché I know. It hit home that 2013 is nearly over when I realised I only have three favourite posts left for the year. Yikes!
Any way before I begin singing Christmas Carol's and wishing you all a Happy New Year let me share my favourite products for September 2013.
Three products have been on my face on an almost daily basis and that is L'Oreal's Lumi Magique Foundation (find it here) - it adds a light glow to my skin, works well with my oily skin and covers beautifully. If you have yet to try it I urge you do so soon as it is easily one of the best high street foundations ever! For those pesky under eye circles I have one again reaching for Maybelline' Age Rewind Concealer (find it here) in either the shade Light or Neutraliser - truthfully the both do the same job on my complexion (lighten and brighten the under eye) that I never really pay all that much attention to what shade I am using. Last but not least as far as bases go anyway I am once again singing the praises of Make Up Forever's Full Cover Concealer (find it here). Nothing and I mean nothing covers quite like it, from disguising old acne scarring to camouflaging the worst blemish this little tube does it all and I will not be without it.
Another trio of face products but this time it is all about the cheeks and powders. I'd be lying if I said I don't love Tarte Blushes (you can find them on eBay) and my favourite by far is the shade Tipsy which is a bright and intensely pigmented coral. This formula wears so well and the shade works well with a light tan. I can not get enough of the Tarte line and will be stocking up again when I hit the states next summer. Oddly I have been using Benefit's Coralista Blush (find it here) as a light peachy highlight lightly blended over Tipsy as I find it a little too shimmery as an all over blush. Lastly and probably the one item I suggest everyone tries at some point is Bourjois Rice Powder (find it here) - not only does it set make-up but it leaves the skin looking a picture of health with the most beautiful glow that is not overly shimmer based nor does it settle into the pores. In a word? Love.
I promise it was not intentional but once again I have three favourite products in the eye category. First of all I can not neglect to mention my Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Palette (find it here)...gah it is just so beautiful and perfect for the Autumn. I truly adore all the shades and liner in this palette but if I had to pick a favourite or perhaps most worn shade it would be Rum Cake worn all over the lid with a slick of Clarins Crayon Khol (find it here) on the lower lash line and blended out with lashings of my favourite mascara of the moment Kardashian Beauty Whip Lash (find it here).
It wouldn't be a favourite post without a few miscellaneous products and this month it has been all about Butter London's Teddy Girl Nail Lacquer (find it here) which is the most perfect baby pink ever coupled with a great long wearing formula. I can't not mention a home fragrance and at the moment I can't get enough of Yankee's Fluffy Towels (find it here) - clean, soft and comforting.
