September was a really busy month for me since I have been preparing for university. Even though moving out has been quite exhausting , I still managed to try some new beauty products and fell in love with some of them.
So these are my september favourites...
Fashion wise , I've been really loving this white cuncky sweater (my obsession for fall) that I got from Stradivarius a few weeks ago. I've been wearing it like crazy with black leggings and black studded boots, creating an edgy but still girly look.
In terms of beauty, the Estée Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer stole my heart! It really makes your skin glow, but in a natural, subtle way and it also makes your foundation last longer. It helps you achieve a dewy ,glowy skin but without looking or getting greasy throughout the day.
All the moving stress has caused my a lot of sleeping trouble ,so as you might expect my skin has been looking really dull and tired. When I have moments like this the foundation I go for is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. I've been using it almost every day this month and fell back in love with it.I thought for a long time that this foundation wouldn't work for me since I have really oily skin ,but with the Rimmel Stay Matte powder it works perfectly.
I have been breaking out a bit this month (thank you stress), so for those days when I didn't really have anything fancy to do, I would keep my makeup minimal by using the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream for oily skin. Now, this one has 2% Salicylic Acid in it which has helped me with my breakout. Also it has quite good coverage and it lasts surprisingly long.
The bronzer that I used every single day this month was the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess in 01 Light and words can't describe how much I love it! I apply it where the sun usually hits your face and it makes my skin look so healthy and glowy in the most natural way. I don't use it to contour and I wouldn't reccommend that because it has a bit of orange in it and it wouldn't look natural. Also the packaging is absolutely gorgeous.
My favourite blush this month has to be the Mac Mineralize Blush in Love Thing. The reason I like it is because it goes perfectly with my favourite lipstick this month : Maybelline COLORsensational in Atomic Pink.
Skincare wise, I have a favourite cleanser this month : the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel for oily sensitive skin. I have been using this in the morning and aswell in the evening after taking of my makeup with the Bioderma Sensibio H2O. It takes off every bit of makeup that's left and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. I just love the Effaclar range so much!
I have two random favourites this month. The first one is my Clinique Antiperspirant Deodorant which is the best deodorant I have ever tried in my whole life and the only one I will ever purchase, and that is kind of a big statement to make.
And last but not least is my Paris notebook. It's the cutest notebook I own so I thought it deserves a place in this blog post. *smiles*
