September Favourites

Hi, everyone!

I hope you had a great September! Unfortunately mine was more stressful than I thought it would be so I had to simplify my normal skin care and make-up routine from the previous month. I also had to stay up for hours studying and doing papers which left my skin dehydrated by morning. This means more hydration and trying to look like I had more sleep than I actually did. Here are some of my favourites for September!


Too Cool for School Marshmallow Puff

I got this at the start of the month and I have been using it every single day to the point that I have to stop myself and give the sponge a few rest days to make it last longer. I love using this with my concealer the most (which I'll mention in a bit) because it makes it look so natural on both blemishes, redness, and under the eyes. 

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

If there is anything that is very important to me, it's concealer. It took a good month for me to finally get this in my shade (as it is always out of stock) but since I got it I have been using it everyday. It's medium to full coverage, a little goes a very long way, and is very brightening under the eyes but still works well on blemishes. You can definitely blend it in with fingers but I love using it with the marshmallow puff for a seamless finish. Easily the best all-around concealer I've tried and it's about time it got mentioned in a favourites post!

Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel

All the stress and lack of sleep has seriously dried my under eyes to the point that I needed to use this during the day (as I used to only use it at night). I discovered that it's a great eye gel for my concealer as it prevents it from looking flaky under the eyes and it doesn't settle so much on my milia (which needs to go -_-). I'm having an issue with fine lines though so I'll definitely switch when this runs out, but highly recommended if you're looking for hydration!

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque

This marks the first time I'm talking about a hair product! I got my hair trimmed about three weeks ago and got this to help my very dry, frizzy hair. This is the first hair mask I've used that really works!  I used it twice a week and it just leaves my hair feeling soft, light, and very healthy-looking. It also makes my hair easier to style, too. It's a bit expensive but well worth the price!

There you have it! I know that school just started for a lot of you plus autumn is coming in, so I wanted to know how this changed your skin care and make-up routines! What products have you loved from September? Let me know in the comment below!

  1. Have you heard of OGX? They do amazing shampoos and conditioners for all sorts of things like volume or humidity control (my fav is the Kukui Oil one) :D Sometimes I can go out even without mousse or anything else on and my hair doesn't fluff up

  3. I always thought that the Nars Creamy Concealer was just for under eyes and highlighting, might have to give this a go now I know I can use it on blemishes :)

    1. Hi there Daisy! I didn't know either but I tried it found it to be pretty good for blemishes because of the medium to full coverage :)

  4. That eye gel looks seriously appealing :) I find it hard to avoid the flaky look when you apply concealer so this might be something!

    1. Hi there! If you come across it, I'd definitely recommend it! It absorbs better but is a bit more hydrating versus most eye creams I've tried :)
