Can we take a second to let the fact we’re already almost done with September sink in, time really is flying by this year! This means there’s only a few days till I start my Open University degree and I’m so nervous/excited as it’s been a while since I’ve been in education so I’ve got to get used to that again… eeep! Being that we’re in September also means Autumns officially here and I couldn’t be happier! Autumn is my absolute favourite time of the year, I love everything about it. Pass me a hot chocolate, my fluffy socks and a plaid scarf and I’m a happy girl, can it just be Autumn all year?
Before I get carried away rambling on about my love for Autumn I should actually get into the post! Today I thought I’d share some of the products I’ve been loving lately, and as I’ve been on a little spending ban the past couple of weeks I’ve been learning to love some of the products I already own that I sort of forgot about, which has made me fall back in love with some old favourites. Luckily my spending ban is officially over now and I ended up going a bit online shopping crazy last night and I have no regrets, I’m weak – expect hauls!
My first favourite is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette which when I first got I wore it to death, and then I moved on to other palettes (because I’m a palette hoarder, oops) but now Autumns officially here I’m like gimme all them warm tones so this palette has been my absolute favourite lately. I love how many looks you can create with this palette as it contains a nice mixture of mattes and shimmers in a range of colours from wearable neutrals to slightly bolder burgundy reds, honestly my heart skips a beat when I see this palette. If you’re a warm toned love like myself, you will adore this palette.
Another product I’ve dug out from my stash is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. I’ve been a fan of Dipbrow for a few years now but with so many brow products around I’ve been trying others so I kind of forgot about this. When I was sorting through my makeup I put this up on my desk so I remembered to use it the following morning and I’ve fallen even more in love with this than I did before. I just love how great it makes my brows look, it turns them from 0 to 10 in the simple swipe of a brush, thank you eyebrow gods.
The next product was actually one I broke my spending ban for, but when the Kat Von D Debenhams launch day came around how could I resist ordering something? I picked up the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow and I already feel like it’s been the best beauty purchase I’ve made of 2016. The KVD liquid lipsticks have the best formula I’ve come across and they’re so long lasting and comfortable to wear. Bow N Arrow is the perfect fawn nude that just works with my skin tone so well.
My last favourite is an old skincare classic of mine, the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox. I’ve repurchased this a few times now and it’s become my evening skincare staple lately. I love how it leaves my skin feeling hydrated whilst still working to tackle any blemishes and redness I may have so in the morning I’m left with soft, radiant looking skin that’s not an oily mess. Fellow combination/oily skin guys and gals you need to give this a try! What products have you been loving lately?
