Well hello there!
Today I have my September Favourites and it is now the 1st October which is extremely exciting because now we can look forward to the festivities to come. We are at my absolute favourite time of year which is Autumn/Winter so its finally time for the colder months woooo!

I need to do a full review on this for you, I have done a video on it but I would like to do a blog post for the people that don't watch my videos. Long story short this is my go-to foundation at the moment, I absolutely love the formula of this as it doesn't stick to dry patches and it blends out beautifully. The only thing that does not agree with my skin type is the longevity of it, it does not last as long as fully matte foundations would on my skin. The coverage is so pretty as well, I wouldn't say its super full coverage but its a good medium and can be built up to full. This foundation is only £9, it only has 23ml of product in it which is a bit disappointing but it is probably because of the packaging and doe-foot applicator.

First of all can I just say that this mascara is NOT spoken about as much as it should be. I first heard of it when Sophdoesnails spoke about it on her channel, and as always she influenced me to buy it. This is so cheap as it is only £4.99 and I cannot believe how inexpensive this is for the quality of the product. It separates your lashes, makes them super black and one of the only mascaras to not flake on me!  

Now that we are diving into Autumn, Soph's Extra Spice palette is the perfect eyeshadow palette to create beautiful warm looks. The shimmers in it are stunning as well, you can create so many different looks with it. This palette only costs £10 and the quality of the shades are amazing. The packaging is very pretty as it is in contrast to her other palette which I still use and love, and it has a huge mirror which is very handy. I do slightly prefer this palette to her old one just because I like the shades in it more, if you haven't tried this yet then you should get your hands on it.

So I love a good nude liquid lipstick, and this is such a beautiful shade of a browny nude. The formula of the lip lingerie's is incredible as well they are super creamy and pigmented. I love the applicator of this as well because its quite long and skinny so it's perfect for applying the product neatly. These only cost £7 which is super inexpensive so I would definitely recommend them! 

So those were my September Favourites, if you enjoyed this post then please make sure to share it - it would really help me out!
