September 2014 Favourites

12 October 2014

september 2014 favouritesBeing a Negative Nelly last month, there wasn’t much stuff I can say I loved. Makeup, masks and skincare fell by the wayside and even taking off my makeup before bed became a rarity. However, this did mean I took a much more simplistic approach to my daily makeup which is reflected in my few favourite products this month.

Maybelline Color Elixir Caramel Infused, £6.99

The thought of gloss usually strikes fear into my heart. But, this nude-pink gloss from the new Maybelline Color Elixir range surprised me. Does anyone remember Blair’s lips in Gossip Girl? I’ve been watching re-runs and literally couldn’t get over how smooth and plump her mouth looked (do I sound creepy yet?). Anyway, this is the only stuff I’ve found that gives the same effect – it fills in all the lines in my lips and makes them look the smoothest they’ve ever been.

Vichy Dermablend Corrective Cream Stick 55 Bronze, £15

Whenever I see a concealer stick, I always assume it’ll be like the ones in the 90s from the likes of Miss Sporty and Collection 2000. Remember the ones with the appearance and texture of a very dry, matte, white lipstick? Well, this isn’t like that. It’s creamy, blendable and the coverage is insane. I use it under my eyes and it’s the only concealer I feel doesn’t need a corrector underneath. It does need a setting powder on top to stop creasing but I am bumming this and refuse to carry on my existence without it.

Garnier Miracle Skin Cream, £12.99

Foundation has been quite frankly, absent from my life lately. I just can’t be bothered. This is all I’ve been using as a base all month and it makes my morning routine so easy. It’s a tiny bit light in colour for me but it’s nothing a bit of bronzer can’t sort out. It’s a moisturiser, it’s an SPF, it’s a skin-tone-even-outer, it’s an anti-ager and it’s all I need. I love that it’s yellow-toned and it makes my skin look even, bright and smooth. I’ve done a review here, if you want to see it in action.

Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser, £14

I reviewed this here. If like me, you hate cleaning your makeup brushes, and need to inject some fun into your dull life at the moment, this will give you a reason to carry on. My single favourite purchase of the summer.

    I have the Maybelline Lip elixir too! I have a really nice berry shade(amethyst potion) and it’s perfect for fall! I love it! It’s got sort of a weird taste though?

      Yes! Not a massive fan of the taste, it kind of reminds me of old ladies? x
