September Favourites

September is the January in fashion and the Spring in beauty. The heavy eye makeup and deep red lips get shelved and the neutral lips, shimmery eyes and perfected skin come out to play. This month is about all of the above and also the fresh and fruity fragrances, stationery to fall head over heels in love with, a brush that deserves an apology and more..

Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer-Oh em gee. This range is all kinds of perfection but rather than turning this into The Bumble & Bumble Hour I narrowed my pickings down to this primer. Spritz it into your hair for shinier, conditioned, UV-ray protected tresses. Just don't spritz too much that the tropical scent distracts you when you're driving. True story...

Sephora Pro #45 Brush-Now this brush was purchased to see if it was as good as the beloved Buffing Brush. At the time I decided it was fairly worthy but not amazing. Flash forward a few months and I love it! If you're in a rush and want something that's going to blend your foundation in for you fast, this is it. It's been compared to the face brush from Bobbi Brown. While it may not be as soft as its more luxurious counterpart, it still delivers.

Rifle Paper Co.-Obsessed doesn't fully cover just how much I love this brand at the moment. In fact, I may not have been able to keep my hands off some of their goodies in Wellington last week either. More on that Monday...If you love gold foil, flowers, beautiful type and illustrations then you are going to love their designs. They'd make great Christmas gifts for someone else or yourself if you're in a 'treat yo'self' frame of mind.

The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Makeup Remover-This was a little birthday purchase last month after spying it on several beauty blogs. The bi-phase remover works like an oil in that it breaks down all your eye makeup. Even the most stubborn waterproof mascaras will be swept away with this one. It's so gentle and I will forever repurchase this.

Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eye Stick in 'Honey Bunny'-In an upcoming video I mention that these are just as good as the Ombre Blackstars at a fraction of the price. Creamy, shimmery colour that does not budge is what you'll get here. I like to pair it with the more shimmery shadows from my Lolita Palette, also by Marc Jacobs. If you can get your hands on these I'd highly recommend them. 

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Pink Glace-Why we cannot get Jouer this side of the globe remains a mystery to me because if their lipgloss offerings are anything to go by, then the rest of their products are looking pretty darn promising. This nude-beige gloss is the perfect YLBB and slightly glossier option. It sits nicely alongside nude lipsticks as well. Lurve. 

Daisy Dream-Again, no surprises here. I've been on a real Marc Jacobs buzz lately. You can check out my review of this fragrance here. It really is the perfect Spring fragrance and is neither too floral nor too fruity. The bottle is pretty perfect too.

The Body Shop Instablur*-I'm not entirely sure how this missed the cut last time favourites deliberating took place because it is awesome. It has more of a gel-like feel which dries down to a matte finish. It's very smoothing on the skin and helps to reduce any uneven texture you may have. More importantly, foundation or your base of choice will not be going anywhere. If you're not willing to fork out for the Hourglass Primer then you should definitely consider this much more wallet-friendly alternative.
