I haven't written a monthly favourites post in such a long time but I used to really enjoy rounding up my favs and writing about them, so I'm bringing this feature back.  I've discovered some incredible new products throughout September so I'm really excited to tell you about them today.

KIKO Lip Crayon in #1:
I bought this a couple of month's ago in Westfield, it's such a beautiful lip shade - my perfect nude and it's also really moisturising and pigmented for a lip crayon.   Unfortunately it isn't available anymore which I'm absolutely gutted about but I'd really recommend popping into a KIKO store to try their products as they're fab!

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Fairytale Eye Palette:
This palette is AMAZING, full stop.  The 4 colours in the fairytale kit are absolutely ideal to create a smokey eye and the quality for a product this affordable is outstanding.  I actually spent some time with Tanya whilst she was planning the colours in her new palettes and to see how much effort she went to; from naming the shades, choosing out exactly what kind of colours she wanted and what the packaging was going to look like, makes me love the products even more!

Nars Highlighter in Albatross:
I've been on a big search for the perfect highlighter recently.  After eyeing up the Becca ones online, I went into a Space NK store to purchase but it wasn't available in that store, so I walked out with this instead and love it.  It's a beautiful gold highlight which looks pretty on my pale skin - I sweep across the tops of my cheekbones, under my brow bone and on my cupids bow - wearing it pretty much daily!

Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick in Pastel Peach:
This is just the prettiest blush/highlighter I own.  I'm still obsessed with peachy shades and this just looks so beautiful on the skin, giving me a really natural, peachy glow!

Barry M Lipstick in #52:
This is a really old favourite of mine which has recently made it's way back into my handbag - it's not the most moisturising (I always wear lip-balm before applying), but the colour is so intense and pigmented that I can't fault it!

Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Corrective Cream:
A couple of months ago I had never used a BB Cream (I just didn't think they'd look good on my blemished, acne prone skin at all) but now I've discovered SO many that I love and adore more than my full coverage foundations.  I really recommend this one in particular - it's light, covers imperfections and makes my skin feel really clear and smooth rather than cakey and oily.

If you'd like to see reviews of any of these products in full then please let me know and I'll get on it!

What have been your favourite products in September?




  1. Aw, shame the Kiko one isn't around anymore, looks like a gorgeous shade! I love the look of the brightening brick though, I'll have to give that a try next time I'm at the Bobbi Brown counter :)

  5. I've heard so many great things about the NARS highlighters but never gave it a chance for some reason. But since it's one of your favorites it must mean that it is wonderful, I'll have to check it out the next time I'm at Sephora.

  6. Urban Decay's "After Dark" matte revolution lipstick. It's a nice berry shade for fall, and it has some cool glitter in it that doesn't feel gritty at all. Super pretty!

  7. The Tanya Burr and Nars albatross are definitly on my wishlist, but I'm budgeting for future school money, so it'll have to go on the wishlist for now <3
