September Faves!

*Insert typical monthy favourites intro here 'this month flew by... blah blah blah*. Now let's skip to the good bit.

CLARINS // INSTANT LIGHT NATURAL LIP PERFECTOR: So this month I found myself on a ferry for 6 hours heading to France. So what do you get when you find a beauty blogger anywhere near duty free? Impulse buys, lots and lots of impulse buys, one of which was this little beauty. For £24 I bought a set of two of the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors - so a bargain right?! I have been wearing the heck out of these, especially at work as they give the perfect 'no makeup makeup' look. I've also noticed that my lips look so much healthier since using them too.

KIKO // GRAPEFRUIT PINK WATER EYESHADOW: I've been trying *trying being the key word here* to be braver with eyeshadow recently and one of the least daring of the colours I have picked up is the Grapefruit Pink water eyeshadow by Kiko. This colour is so gorgeous and a lot more wearable than I first thought. It looks so different in different lights with the gold shimmer than runs through it. You can see a FOTD featuring this little beauty here

MAC // SOFT AND GENTLE HIGHLIGHT: I have wanted this highlight forever. I finally bought it and it did not disappoint. This is gorgeous. I love being able to apply it with a light hand for a super natural shine or just piling it on for a night out. I can't believe it took me so long to add this highlight to my collection.

KIKO SMUDGE STICK // 03: I love makeup that is fuss free on a day to day basis. This is so so simple to wear and it blends so easily! I just apply it all over the eyelid and a bit underneath the eye then smudge it out using my finger and I'm good to go. Plus the colour is lovely, you can't really go wrong with a bronzey brown.

MAYBELLINE // INSTANT ANTI AGE FOUNDATION: This was another holiday purchase and yes, I will admit, the only reason I bought it was because I knew I couldn't get it in England (I can always find a way to justify purchasing makeup). That being said I have always loved this product's sister, the under eye concealer, so I did have high hopes. This foundation is ideal for day to day wear as it has a light, dewy finish, and I have been reaching for it an awful lot this month.

CALLIGRAPHY: I have always been in awe of people that can write in modern calligraphy. I think it is just gorgeous so I got very excited when I was watching Lilly Pebbles vlog and she mentioned this book. Of course I had to order is ASAP and now here I am with a new obsession. I am by no means an expert (in fact I can barely write the alphabet) but I'm enjoying trying out a new skill.

What have you been loving this month?
