Hey everyone, I’ve been meaning to get this post live for the last few days, but I’ve been so busy with Michael’s birthday celebrations and enjoying myself that I haven’t found the time! But I’m finally sitting down with a cup of tea whilst it’s raining outside (finally some Autumn weather) writing my September favourites. I have a few skincare and makeup favourites, so if you want to find out what kind of products I’ve been loving lately then just keep reading.
Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster (£45 for 30ml)
I know this product is pretty pricey, and that’s why it has been sat in my cupboard unused since I received it at a beauty conference with work. I didn’t WANT to fall in love with it, because repurchasing would be painful. But I am definitely starting to think that repurchasing this may have to happen. This booster is the first product to apply after cleansing, before any serums & moisturisers. Since I implemented this product into my routine my skin has never looked healthier! It’s so clear and healthy. This product is designed to restore skins surface and fortify its ability to repair and renew. I really think this has elevated my skincare routine.
Clinique All About Eyes Rich (£28.50)
I know I’ve mentioned this eye cream a couple times on my blog but I don’t think it’s featured in any favourites posts, and that just had to change as it’s one of my absolute ride or die skincare products. I’ve always had dry under eyes with lots of fine lines, and before trying this eye cream I tried so many products with varying levels of success, but none have performed quite as well as this one! I use this every single morning and it has really hydrated my under eyes and helped so much with the fine lines – makeup sits much nicer in the area now. I really recommend this!
bareMinerals Butter Drench Restorative Rich Cream (£32 for 50ml)
I finished up my Origins Ginzing moisturiser during September and moved onto using this one daily instead. I love how calming and soothing this one feels on my skin. It’s quite a thick consistency, but not as thick as it sounds from the name ‘Butter Drench’. It actually kind of feels like melting butter in texture. It soaks into the skin nicely, and truly leaves skin feeling not only hydrated but super smooth. It’s one of those products that makes you want to touch your skin and stroke it because it’s so soft! If you’re looking for new skincare, bare minerals is worth checking out – I didn’t realise how lovely their range is.
Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer (£26)
I stopped using this primer for a while as I was trying out other stuff, but recently I started again and I’m falling back in love with it! It gives the skin a lovely smooth feeling which is ideal for applying foundation on top. I particularly like to apply a more matte/soft matte foundation on top as it keeps the skin hydrated under the matte foundations. It pairs so well with the new Too Faced Born This Way matte foundation. I’m almost out so I’m definitely going to be repurchasing this month.
Benefit Brow Microfilling Pen (£22.50)
I’ve actually not heard the best reviews on this product since it was released not long back, and in a way I can kind of see why, which sounds strange to say since this is literally featuring on my favourites post. However, I just think this product is for a specific person/brow, and I fall into that category. If you’re wanting something that fills your brows a lot then powder or pencil may be the better option as it’s a slower process to fill the entire brow with this pen. but if like me you just want to add a little bit extra to the brow easily and have it look undetectable and totally hair like then this is such a great option. I had my HD brows done by a friend so my brows were already looking filled, so alls I need is a little bit of this pen now that I’ll be having regular brow appointments.
Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop (£19)
I have quite a number of blushes in my makeup collection, but this is literally the only one I have been using lately! It’s such a gorgeous colour that seems to work well with any makeup look. It’s also super pigmented, but blendable and never goes patchy. I’ve also had this product a while and use it a lot, yet it doesn’t look like I’ve made much of a dent it the powder, so it seems like it’s going to last me a long time. If you haven’t used these blushes I definitely suggest taking a look at them. Clinique makeup it very underrated!
That’s all for my September favourites. What have you been loving lately?
