September beauty favourites!

So it's October, ummmmm What? Today it's favourites time. Septembers been a strange month as months go. The weather has been so topsy turvy it's crazy and I've been super busy. I've not actually worn lots of makeup this month as I've gone back to school. 

Catrice Powder blusher - Apropos apricot 

This catrice blush has to be one of my favourites of all time. It's a beautiful peach with lots of gold shimmer which catches the light beautifully. The powder is very soft and finely milled and sweeps over the skin beautifully. 

OCC Lip tar - NSFW 

Recently this has been the only red lip I've worn. This stuff lasts forever, a tiny weeny blob covers my whole lips with a beautiful opaque deep red which lasts all day with eating and drinking. I have to wear a lip liner as it does have the tendency to bleed but otherwise it's so fuss free. 

Seventeen Skin wow highlighter

I love the versatility of this product but I've been using it most as a highlighter. It's so similar to benefit high beam, I would say the only two differences are this isn't quite as obvious  and it's a little bit more liquidy. I also really like mixing it into my foundation for a little added glow. 

Makeup revolution Powder eyeshadow -  Good life 

This is such an unusual colour, it's a mix of silver, lilac and baby pink and is the perfect sweep over the lid and go colour. These last a pretty decent amount of time and the formula is incredible for £1.00 

Essie Nail polish - Aruba blue 

This polish reminds me of the sea I adore it. I love the formula of essie polishes. They just paint really lovely and last for a good 3 days which on me is pretty much unheard off. This is a gorgeous deep blue with lots of silver shimmer. Not to season appropriate but still beautiful.

  2. Love that eyeshadow, I'll have to add it to my next Makeup Revolution order!
