Here’s what I’ve been loving in the past month, there’s not many new make up additions as I’ve been sticking with a lot of the same products as previous months, but I have found a couple of new things I’ve discovered that I’ve been enjoying.

Primark Love to Glow Moisturiser -£3.00
So I’ll start with skincare and I actually have a review of a couple of the new Primark skincare range coming soon to the blog so I’m not going to talk about it too much, but I’ve recently purchased this Primark Love to Glow moisturiser and it’s so good! For the price it’s incredible and I’ve paid a lot more for moisturisers just like this.
I’ve been trying out and loving the combination of two mascaras this month, the first is this one by L’Oreal and it does an amazing job of lengthening and fanning out my lashes, it’s also really black which I like. I wouldn’t say it’s amazing at curling my lashes, but I just use it with an eyelash curler and it makes them look really volumised.
The second mascara I have been using is this one from Revlon, I actually have the waterproof black version and it’s honestly one of the best waterproof mascaras I have ever used. I can put this on my bottom lashes in the morning and if I’m out late, it won’t have budged or smeared the whole day. My lower lashes always smudge as they are quite long so this mascara is a God send! I also tend to pair it with the L’Oreal mascara over the top on my top lashes just to give more volume and so it stops all of my mascara budging.
This is a fairly new release by MakeUp Revolution, I had tried quite a lot of their other products including their eyeshadow palettes etc and always liked them, so as a highlight junkie I had to get my hands on this! I’m so surprised on how much I like it, recently I’ve been using Anastasia Beverly Hills and this is such a good dupe! There’s 8 different shades ranging from pink to gold tones and they’re all so buttery and pigmented. For the price, this is so worth buying.
So it wouldn’t be my favourites if I didn’t have at least two lip products..! And there’s two I’ve been loving in September; the first is a nude shade which is so pretty. It’s more of an orange toned nude which is quite different to what I’d normally go for but it’s so easy to wear, no need for a mirror to apply and I love it for a day to day look. I love the formula of the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks, they’re not drying at all and this is a cream finish so it’s quite moisturising but long lasting too.
I found this lipstick whilst I was in America in the summer and I’ve fallen in love with it! The shade rose-bud is perfect for this time of year as it’s a mauve-y toned pink which is great for a beautiful ‘english-rose’ look. I can’t even remember it being called Mega Matte as this may have put me off buying it as I tend to get very dry lips so I avoid most matte lipsticks, but this is absolutely amazing. It’s so comfortable to wear and I’d say it has more of a velvet finish than totally matte, but this suits me much more! I wish Wet N Wild were more easily available in the UK; I have linked one I found on amazon which is brilliant (and potentially dangerous for my bank account) so hopefully you can get your hands on one too.
I can’t remember how I stumbled onto this youtube video, but I can’t stop watching it! If you ever need something to cheer you up, just watch this it’s so entertaining!
My last favourite is a TV Show called Dexter on Netflix. I watched this a few years ago and loved it so much I have convinced my husband to watch it all over again with me as he’d never seen it before! I have to admit it’s very gory, so if you’re not into that kind thing then I wouldn’t watch it.. but if you enjoy thrillers and comedy combined then I’d definitely give it a go. It’s got a lot of drama and there’s 8 seasons so it’s perfect now for autumn and winter all cuddled up inside in the warm!
