September Favourites

1. Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss - a hydrating lip balm with a touch of colour, great for day-to-day, especially in this colder weather, and it's not too nude, so you don't look dead

2. GHD Salon Styler Wide Plate Straighteners - I've lately been going mad on straightening my hair, and I swear by these! Makes my hair so smooth, and really lasts well. I've had them for a few years now, and are still going strong

3. Rimmel Stay Matte powder - a good powder for keeping my makeup in place, and keeping my t-zone oil-free

4. MUA Blush Perfection in Dolly - a lovely natural, peachy colour that really seems to suit my skin tone. I love the texture of the MUA cream blushes, and I think this would suit everyone

5. Real Techniques Buffing Brush - I love this brush so much! Even more than the Expert Face Brush, it blends foundation into the skin flawlessly, and doesn't leave any brush marks etc

6. Balmi lip balm in Raspberry - I use this as a night-time lip balm; it's so moisturising and really leaves your lips looking and feeling lovely, and it smells amazing!!

7. Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me - again, a nice, hydrating everyday lip balm with a hint of red

8. Taylor by Taylor Swift perfume - this is a slightly different scent to what I usually go with, slightly more grown-up, but still quite sweet smelling

9. Maybelline The Eraser Eye concealer in Light - this covers dark circles so well, and it also helps to treat them. Can't say I've noticed anything treatment wise, but I do love this to cover under the eyes

10. John Frieda 3-Day straight - I've been using this with my GHDs, and it just helps to keep my hair that much smoother and straighter

11. L'Oreal Telescopic Waterproof mascara - I bought this on recommendation from ViviannaDoesMakeup, and I love it! Sadly it has been discontinued, but I found this in the Boots clearance bit. Lengthens eyelashes really well, and holds a curl

12. Herbal Essences Fresh Balance Clarifying Shampoo - I use this just once a week, to make sure my hair is really clean, and there's no product build-up. It does a really great job, and it's always on offer at Boots (it's currently half price at £1.94, for a huge 400ml bottle!)


  1. I need a new eye concealer, I might try out the Maybelline one :) I love your blog
