September Beauty Favourites

Where did September go? We are well and truly in Autumn now and over the last month I have been making changes in my everyday routines to accommodate for the colder weather. I think every product I am going to tell you about was new to me this month. I will have full reviews already done of some of these and I will link the full blog post as I talk about them so you can check them out! 

Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Moisturiser
I am already a massive fan of the Idéalia serum and have been a big fan of that for years. So when I seen online that there was a new addition to the Idéalia family, I had to get it. This cream is based around the idea that people don't get enough sleep & their skin doesn't get a chance to regenerate over night. Since starting to use this, I have found that my skin looks brighter & healthier while feeling a lot more moisturised. It is not as thick as some other night creams that I have used in the past, it is a very light-weight consistancy-almost like a gel. It sinks in so quickly and in combination with the application techniques they give you, it helps relax me so much for bedtime. It also has a gorgeous scent.

Charlotte Tilbury "Bitch Perfect" Lipstick
I keep thinking the name is Bitch Please, that's what I've been calling it anyway! This is the first lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury I have tried and I have fallen in love. It was always the price-tag that put me off but the quality of the lipstick definitely justifies it. It has a gorgeous formula that literally glides on to your lips. It is really long-lasting and pigmented which is all I want out of a lipstick. It is a gorgeous pink neutral shade that seems to just suit all kinds of make-up looks. I reviewed this on Monday so click here if you want to read more about it! 

GlamGlow YouthMud Face Mask
I haven't actually mentioned that I got this on my social media or on here. I just wanted to give it a proper test before I said anything about it. There has been so much hype surrounding the GlamGlow masks lately, and again it was the eye-watering price tag that put me off. But I picked it up when there was a sale on at the the end of August and have been putting it to the test since. I do have a full review of this coming up soon but since adding this to my routine I have found the texture of my skin has really improved. It has helped clear up any imperfections a lot quicker, made it look a lot clearer over all and made it feel so soft. I have been doing this mask once a week and really love it. So expensive but definitely worth it in my opinion!

Urban Decay Riff Eyeshadow
Another hyped product that I had to get my hands on. Again I picked this up at the end of August and it has taken up permanent residence in my make-up bag since. It makes for a perfect all over the lid colour or for in the crease. It is a burnt orange/brown colour- a colour I would never have worn before because I just didn't think it would suit me. It really looks lovely with a bit of liquid liner and lots of mascara. I find it really looks lovely with blue eyes- but I imagine it would suit a lot of different skin tones and eye shades. It has been my go-to eyeshadow on an everyday basis- especially on an early morning this is perfect.

Boots Essentials Vanilla Body Butter
I randomly picked this up in Boots one day to give it a smell, and had to buy it instantly. This moisturiser smells good enough to eat. I have been slathering myself in this every night before bed and my skin has definitely gotten better because of it! My skin is so soft because of this. It is a really rich, thick body butter- but it does sink in quickly so you don't have to hang around waiting for it to dry. When I find a body butter I love the smell of, it really motivates me to actually use it. I will definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out, and it doesn't break the bank either!

Ariana Grande Ari Eau De Parfum
I really didn't expect to like this as much as I do. I'm not the biggest Ariana Grande fan so I was pretty much indifferent to the news that she had released a perfume - until I smelt it. It is a citrus/fruity scent with a hint of marshmallow apparently. It has a slight sharp scent to it also. I really am terrible and describing scents so I would recommend that you go give it a smell. The full sized bottle is so cute too! Don't be put off because it is a celebrity scent!

So those are my favourites for September- I still can't believe we're in October already. Let me know if you would like to see any full reviews of any of the products mentioned, and let me know what you have been loving this month!
