Blogtober Day 3 - September favourites

It's been a while since I've written a proper favourites post however I've decided to scrap my monthly makeup posts as I felt like they were getting a little too repetitive as I have a bad habit of sticking to the same base products and brow products all the time. I just feel like these kind of posts are just going to be a much better representation of what I'm really loving. I am actually switching it up even more as I'm also going to include any lifestyle and fashion favourites in too!

Starting off with lifestyle and fashion we have this gorgeous scarf from new look. I already have a big blanket scarf however it has much deeper more typical autumn colours where as I just liked that this one is a little different and I do love anything baby pink. I think this was also only around the fifteen pound mark so nice and affordable for a really lovely quality scarf. My other lifestyle type favourite this month has to be uni. I just feel like I have settled in so easily and don't get me wrong I miss home like mad but I also love being here. I am going to be doing a full post on my first month at uni so make sure you keep an eye out for that one.

So first off we have Paw paw balm, this is just the best for basically any dryness however over this month I have been slathering it all over my lips and it has been an absolute saviour, this one has no tint in it so just adds a little sheen to the lips. Moving onto makeup I have been loving the YSL Touche eclat foundation. it is the most beautiful medium coverage with a dewy finish and I just think it is perfect for my dry skin type. The only issue I have with it is that the colour is a little off however paired with a couple of lightening drops it's not an issue.

Everyone loves the Maybelline Eraser eye however I always found it too dark, however I managed to find a tube of the brightener shade in my local Superdrug and I am so happy. This is a very pink toned shade which works perfectly on my skin tone. The main reason I love this concealer is that it is so comfortable under the eyes and doesn't fall into the dry patches which is a huge problem I have with drier concealer formulas. 

Finally I have a couple of products for the eyes, the first is the Essence Metal shock shadow in Stars and stories which is just a stunning rose gold shade which almost looks slightly glossy on the lids yet doesn't move at all. I have even tested it on a night out and it stayed firmly on my lids. Then finally we have the Anastasia Subculture palette. I know this isn't the easiest thing to work with however if you have seen my review you will know that now I am used to working with the formula of the shadows I actually really enjoy it. The shadows are crazy pigmented and I personally find they blend really nicely both on top of a primer and without.

So that's it for this months favourites, I'd love to know what you have been loving recently. 


  1. I loved that foundation- the finish & coverage but it broke me out so badly! ☹️ X

  2. I haven't been able to find the brightener. The first shade is too dark for me too. I haven't tried the Subculture but I'm interested in the new Prism palette.
