September Favourites

As the nights are getting darker and a lot more cold, I've found myself suffering with extremely dry lips so I've been reaching for the EOS Medicated Tangerine Lip Balm on an almost hourly basis. As this is medicated, it feels slightly dried out when you're applying it but I assure you that it does do the trick. I've noticed that since using this, my dry lips have almost vanished completely and I don't suffer that dreaded burning sensation with it like you do with Carmex. 

Seeing as my role at work is changing and I'm now starting earlier, I've found myself needing more coverage especially on my dark circles and blemishes so I've been using the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer and the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer whenever I apply my makeup. The Maybelline offering instantly highlights and conceals my dark circles whilst the Seventeen offering conceals all my scarring and blemishes. These two are fast becoming my favourite concealers of all time.

In order to inject some glow back into my stress ridden/lack of sleep face, I've been mixing the Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in Pink Light in with my foundation to create a dewy glow to my base. I much prefer mixing this in with my foundation rather than using it as a highlighter as the effect it gives is a lot more natural whilst creating the appearance of perfect skin. I know that I shouldn't be using Sudocrem on blemishes but I just can't help myself especially when any blemishes that I do pop this onto are reduced with size and redness come morning.


  1. The Revlon Face Illuminator sounds great. I'll have to see if I can track it down in my local Boots for a cheeky little test. Raspberrykiss xo

  2. I've wanted that Revlon Illuminator for a long time!! Next time I find a display I'll have to pick it up!
