It is that time of the month again where I ramble on and on about all of the things that I have been loving throughout this month!
I’ll start off with drugstore products! Firstly, is the L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara. I am SO fussy with my mascaras; they need to make my eyelashes look fuller, and longer, without them feeling too thick and clumpy and this mascara does exactly that! It has lovely packaging, which makes it look a lot more expensive than it actually is. It also has a curved wand that makes it easy to grab every lash and allows you to work your way from the root upwards! This is the mascara that I have found myself reaching for the most over the past few weeks.
Until now, I have always hated pencil eyeliners. I just find that they don’t stay on and they smudge so easily. However, I decided to buy the Soap and Glory Smoulder Kohl eyeliner as it was on a buy one get second half price, so I thought I’d give it a try, and now I love it. It is so easy to apply, doesn’t smudge and stays in place all day! I apply this to my top and bottom waterline and it really does make a difference to my eye makeup.
I love the Kate Moss lipsticks by Rimmel and I recently bought the shade 38. I have always gone for nudes that have more of a brown undertone to it, whereas this is a lot more pink. However, I have found myself really enjoying using it! It is the perfect nude pink and has more of a satin finish, leaving your lips with a bit of a sheen to them and it lasts for a really long time!
Now, onto high-end products! This next product has probably become my new favourite foundation – a big claim to make, I know. This is the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation. I wear this in the shade B20 and it gives a light to medium coverage, which isn’t something I usually go for; I tend to go for foundations with a much fuller coverage. This product is so lightweight and has quite a thin consistency. It blends so easily and makes your skin look flawless without a lot of coverage! It also lasts all day long, doesn’t transfer, doesn’t crease and it doesn’t make me look oily or shiny. It does cost £33, but I am 100% going to be repurchasing this product!
This next product is extremely talked about and well-loved within the beauty sphere; this is the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm. I was really reluctant in spending so much money on a cleanser, but now, I can totally see what all of the fuss is about! It is so easy to use, it removes all traces of makeup, it smells lovely and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry like some other cleansers that I’ve used. I can’t see myself using any other product to take off my makeup! I can see myself repurchasing this A LOT.
Another lipstick that I have been absolutely loving is the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Glastonberry. I am all about the lips, especially during autumn and winter and this is a really dark, berry colour that suits this time of year perfectly! To be fair, I will be wearing this all year round because it is such a good quality product that feels so luxurious; in terms of both packaging and the formulation of the lipstick itself. It is a matte lipstick, however it is not at all drying and really does last a long time. This is another product that I can no longer see myself without and will most definitely be repurchasing, along with many other shades from the same collection.
My next favourite is actually a coat. I bought this from Topshop at the beginning of the month and I have worn it pretty much everyday since! I didn’t really need a new coat, but this was in the ‘last chance to buy’ section and was the only one and in my size too, so I had to buy it, didn’t I? It is such a warm, cosy and high quality coat that goes with most things, and I will most definitely be wearing this next winter too!
My final favourite is the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Shampoo and Conditioner. Recently, I have noticed that the blonde in my hair has started to look quite brassy and yellow and I wasn’t ready to have it dyed again, so I thought I’d buy something to get rid of the brassiness. I decided to go with the Lee Stafford range because I have so many other things by him that I absolutely love, so chances were, I was going to love this too. It has made such a difference to my hair and in the two weeks that I have been using it, it has completely reduced the yellow and brassy tones in my hair and is almost back to normal!
That is everything for this month’s favourites, let me know what you have been loving!
