September Favourites

It’s s that time again!! my monthly favourites and this month I’ve been loving my face and eye palettes, I can’t Seem to stop ordering them! So next months faves will have a lot of palettes mentioned as well just to warn you!

Now on to this months and it’s just a couple of bits I’ve been using non stop since I bought them.



  • KVD shade + light eye palette
  • DOC hidden treasure palette
  • Tarte rainforesnt of the sea skin twinkle highlighting palette
  • Freedom makeup primer water
  • Dermalogica phyto replenish oil
  • Becca mineral blush in wild honey
  • KVD bow n arrow liquid lipstick
  • NYX full throttle kiss the dust lip stick


DOC hidden treasure palette

I’ve done a post all about this and I absolutely love it, the foil shadows are insane, I love coin and gemstone the most, but this palette will be great for Christmas time looks who’s ready for party season?! I’m so addicted To shimmers and foil shadows at the moment.


KVD shade +light eye palette

I have only just done a post about this but I’ve been loving it since I got it last month, it’s a great basic palette and the shades are great for autumn. I love the formula and staying power and they blend really nicely.  I’ve been reaching for this everyday.


Tarte skin twinkle palette

I am actually going to be mentioning this in an upcoming tarte post so I won’t go into too much detail, but these highlighters are stunning and I use them with Mac fix plus so they are more intense, I liked using Mac fix plus with all my highlighters so it doesn’t look so dry or Cakey on my skin. I love mixing both of these highlighting shades together, the middle shade is more of a setting powder than a highlighter which I find a bit odd as I would have loved another highlighting shade.


Becca mineral blush in wild honey

I love Becca blushes, they’re really pigmented and last really well on the skin, this is the shade wild honey and it’s my typical go to blush shade,  I prefer the more peachy, warm nude type shades.


KVD bow n arrow and NYX full throttle lipstick

I do love my brown toned nudes, these are what I’ve been wearing a lot, bow n arrow I mentioned in my recent KVD post, it’s a lovely brown nude shade and it’s so long lasting, I am a bit of a liquid lipstick junkie so I’ve tried a lot of different brands and formulas.

NYX kiss the dust I got a few weeks ago and I thought straight away it looked similar to bow n arrow, but it is slightly more brown once I compared them, I’ve left a swatch below. It’s a matte lipstick but it’s so mosirurising.

Freedom priming water 

Lastly I want to mention the freedom makeup priming water, I actually picked this up just because I had heard it was a dupe for the smashbox priming water so I thought it was worth a try, and I actually love it I’ve been using it every morning before I apply anything on my face and it’s So refreshing and I love how it preps the skin, I’m definitely going to be picking another one up.

phyo replenish oil 

The Dermalogica Phyto Oil I mentioned last week, it’s helped my skin so much and I’ve noticed my skin isn’t as dry and my foundation isn’t clinging to my dry patches, that in it’s self has made me love this product, anything that helps my dry skin is a must for me.

I Hope you liked this months favourites.

As always thank you for reading. Xo
