September 2016 Beauty Favourites

It’s that time of the month again – time for me to share my beauty favourites from over the past few weeks, and they’re all products that I haven’t already raved about in any other blog post this month. There are some autumnal bath treats, lots of sparkle, makeup and some skincare gems.

Lush Halloween 2016

Lush Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb

Lush Monster's Ball Bath Bomb

Lush have brought out their limited edition autumn and Halloween products for 2016 and they are great as usual. I love their Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb (£3.75 from Lush) so much as it literally smells of crushed leaves – so fresh and crisp. It melts into green and red/orange/yellow ombre fizzy bubbles and contains Bergamot Oil, Neroli Oil, Japanese Maple Sap and Sandalwood Oil. I also love their Monster’s Ball Bath Bomb (£4.25 from Lush). It explodes into turquoise, fuschia pink and purple bubbles and has a lovely zesty and clean lime scent. It contains Lime Oil, Neroli Oil and Fair Trade Cocoa Butter.

I’ve also been loving the Beauty Boulevard Stardust glitters this month. You can apply these to your hair, skin and nails and the loose glitters come with an adhesive to use with it too. These will be great for the upcoming party season, but I loved giving myself some turquoise mermaid hair for a fashion event with their Stardust Glitter Kit in Cosmic Child (£12.50 from Beauty Boulevard).

Benecos Lipstick in Poppy Red

Makeup-wise, I’ve been loving two products from natural beauty brands. The Benecos Lipstick in Poppy Red (£6.95 from Benecos) is the perfect muted brown-toned red and is an ideal companion to all the ’90s chokers we’ll all be wearing this season. I’d say it is a semi-matte, but it’s very creamy and moisturising as it contains Avocado Oil and Olive Oil. This looks really nice just patted onto the lips too as it gives more of a brown-nude look.

I’ve also been loving the Soultree Ayurvedic Kajal in Copper Tint (£13.90 from Soultree). These eyeliners are made with only natural and organic ingredients and are basically just organic ghee, organic Almond Oil and natural colour pigments. This copper-bronze shade is perfect for autumn and it’s so easy to line your top and bottom waterlines with these creamy kajal liners.

Lancome Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector

Finally, onto skincare, I’ve been really impressed with (and really enjoyed using) my new night cream – Lancome’s Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector (£60 from House of Fraser) is a light-textured gel and oil blend that really performs. It’s quite scented though -a fresh, floral scent – so if you don’t like that, you might not be able to deal with this. It’s micro-droplets of oil suspended in a hydrating gel and it makes your skin feel softer, plumper and more nourished. After around one month, you will really notice improved elasticity and radiance too. I prefer gel-like moisturisers, but with this you are also definitely getting the hydration and nourishment that a rich cream would give you.

Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment

Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment

I am also really impressed with Murad’s new product. Their Eye Lift Firming Treatment (£45 from Feel Unique) comes as an eye cream with pump dispenser and dry fibre under-eye patches. This isn’t a daily eye cream, so you can keep using your own favourite. Instead, this is a targeted treatment for 2-3 times per week – you generously apply the cream under your eyes without rubbing in, then press a patch on top; leaving for 10 minutes before patting any excess into your skin. It’s a professional-strength treatment that firms the skin, hydrates with Hyaluronic Acid, lifts the area and fills lines and wrinkles (also with Hyaluronic Acid). You get 2X visibly firmer skin immediately after use, so it’s a great product for after a late night.

Have you tried any of these?
