For most, September is a month of denial as you find yourself missing Summer but are stuck in between seasons, but for me, it is the month I look forward to finishing the most so I can get excited for Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas.
With Autumn comes a great deal of pumpkin-spiced everything, even makeup looks. I'm personally obsessed with orange-brown smokey eyes with a shiny nude lip, but I have noticed that a lot of people I follow on my social media are still going for a glowing skin with lots and lots of highlighter (you glow, girl). So you can imagine that the products I've been using and loving the most the past month include a mixture of both, Summer and Autumn products.

Makeup Revolution is definitely one of those brands that everyone would have tried at some point in their lives. For me, it is one of my favourite brands for powder products such as eyeshadows and highlighters. My favourite ones that I've been loving throughout September are the Salted Caramel Palette and the Ultra Strobe Cream which make the perfect autumnal face. Sometimes I like to use the strobe cream on the high points of my face, and other times I put it all over my face and shine like the stars!

Do you remember how big the Mariah Carey x MAC collab was? All I remember is that people were fighting over the highlighter and most lipsticks, but I managed to get a lipstick and a lipglass and boy, oh boy can I just say how stunning the colours and the packaging is?! I have actually not touched them at all until recently as I didn't want to ruin the beautifully detailed engraving on the lipstick.

Last but not least, I have been overusing stick highlighters - especially the Collection Pearl Sheen one is shade 01. I like to apply it faintly over my foundation before I set it with powder for a more blinding effect. The shade is actually really nice, not as opaque as I'd like for it to be but it was expected for the low price.

Ever since I tried out Primark's makeup range, I've been obsessing over these ideas and have bought a whole face of makeup from brands such as Natural Collection, Poundland etc. Today, I wanted to share with you guys my September favourites featuring only makeup from Poundland.

Liquid Lipsticks have taken over the world just like drawn-on eyebrows, they're a must for most. So when I found out that Poundland has released a new range of products, including liquid lipsticks, I had to rush over and pick out every shade!

The nude shade is absolutely perfect as an every-day kind of colour. I feel like it goes with all skin tones, and because it's a cool-tone it suits me more than any other nude liquid lipstick! YAY.

The pink shade is gorgeous for the night time. I feel like it would look amazing with a grey-black smokey eye or a feline liner flick and extreme wispy lashes! The scent is great, it smells like vanilla cupcakes and applies really easily. If I had to compare them to another product, it would have to be the NYX soft matte lip creams.

On the other hand, the contour duo's are also amazing for the price. I feel like both of the bronzer shades are great and would suit up to medium-dark skin tones. The highlighter shade is very pretty, however it's in a cream format so it's quite hard to work with. Same thing goes for the blush shade, however I feel like it's more bendable, especially on darker skin.

I've been using the liquid lipsticks practically every day throughout September and would highly recommend them. I would also say that the contour kits are worth buying, if you're on a budget or are feeling like trying out a new beauty product.

Have you tried any of Poundland's makeup? What about their liquid lipsticks?

2015 || September Favourites

Hey guys!

Most of you already know that I am a massive tea drinker and I've previously reviewed Clipper's tea here. As September is such a dreary month, I've been drinking more tea. I'm a big fan of green and herbal teas, especially in the morning while I'm getting ready or at night before bed. 

Lemon green tea are very refreshing to have in the morning and because it has caffeine it will wake you up instantly. If you find green tea a bit bitter, you can always use a sweetener or one teaspoon of sugar for added taste. I would recommend using honey instead of sugar just because it tastes nicer and is healthier. :)

You could also add a slice of lemon or orange for extra taste. I love putting slices of lemon, orange and a couple of mint leaves in filtered water as it's a good cleanser for your system and gets rid of unhealthy toxins!
This tea retails at around £3.00. I bought it on offer for only £1.00 which is a complete bargain for 80 tea bags.
The Snore&Peace tea is very calming and sends you off to sleep. It is especially useful for people who share a room and feel like they are disrupting the other person with their snoring as this tea helps to clear out the nasal cavity, enabling the person to breathe through their nose without snoring. It is very tasty, and I highly recommend it to those who have snoring problems or are just after a peaceful night.

Have you tried any of these teas? If so, what did you think of them?

Lots of love,
