September Beauty Favourites!

At the beginning of this month it was my birthday and I was lucky enough to treat myself to a few new products which have made their way into this months favourites. I've also started using a few products that have been waiting in the wings which i've been loving.
The first product I have is a body product which is the & Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Scrub, I bought this a while ago and just started using it and it is so lovely. It is a great scrub that is also very moisturising to the skin, it turns into a cream when mixed with water. The fig scent is also very lovely. There's been a few haircare products i've liked this month but the stand out has been the Klorane Camomile Shampoo for Blonde Hair, i've found everytime I use this it makes my blonde hair look brighter and it also makes my hair feel really clean. I would definitely recommend this for any fellow blonde hair people. 
Onto skincare, first being The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser (review). If been loving this as a primer for keeping my makeup in place as well as leaving my skin matte and an added bonus is that it seems to help get rid of blemishes quicker too. The next is the Amie Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturiser, I picked this up when it was on offer in Waitrose and i've been really impressed with it. It leaves the skin matte whilst making it feel hydrated. It is perfect for my combination dehydrated skin and it is really affordable. The final skincare item I have is the Simple Revitalising Eye Roll On, my eyes have felt really dry and tight due to my hayfever and I picked this up on a whim hoping it would help and it actually has. It feels cooling around the eyes and soothes any tight feeling. 
I've been wearing a few different lip products this month but the stand out ones have been ones i've rediscovered. The first is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush which is one of my favourite lip products for this time of year as it is the perfect berry colour that lasts amazingly on the lips. The other is a more subtle option in the Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya, this is a lovely light peachy shade that is so easy to wear and goes with a lot of makeup looks. 
I've had a few new base products i've been loving this month. The first being the L'oreal Lumi Magique Foundation (review) which is a lovely glowy foundation that stays put on my oily skin. It also has medium but buildable coverage. The concealer i've been loving is the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint (review) which is a great drugstore concealer that has a high coverage and is very comparable to something like Benefit Erase Paste. Finally the powder which i've been using is the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder (review), this is a light powder which sets my foundation or bb cream nicely without feeling or looking cakey whilst adding a little more coverage. 
Finally I have a standout eyeshadow which i've been loving this month and I think is a bit of a hidden gem from the drugstore. The Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow in Smokey Quartz, this is the perfect taupey brown shade which is very pigmented and looks great alone or used in a smokey eye. The quality is very comparable to high end eyeshadows and it has been my go to eyeshadow all month.

So those are this months beauty favourites, i've been using a lot of products this month but these have been the main stand out products this month. What have been some of your favourite products this month?
