September Beauty Favourites

At the start of September I went to Canada and America for 10 days which has definitely had an influence on this months favourites. I picked up a good selection of products whilst I was there and a few have already become favourites of mine. 
September Beauty Favourites
September Beauty Favourites
Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm - £20.00 - I took this mini with me as my evening cleanser and I really like it. It's a balm that has some small grains in it which cleanses the skin well leaving it feeling really smooth. It definitely felt soothing on the skin and I think it would work for most skin types. 
Superdrug Clearly Youthful Hydrating Serum - £4.89 - This is a budget option I picked up in hopes of it replacing my current serum. It's a light gel that absorbs quickly whilst feeling hydrating. I would say it is best if you have oily to combination skin that needs some hydration but nothing too heavy. For the price it's a really great product.

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation - $11.29 This was the only foundation I picked up in America after hearing great things about it. It's been the base i've worn pretty much all month as it has great coverage, feels silky on the skin and lasts really well. It really does tick all the boxes and has been great on my skin which is starting to get drier. 
September Beauty Favourites
Wet n Wild Downtown Browns Eyeshadow Palette - $6.99 - Wet n Wild always impress me when it comes to shadows and when I spotted this palette I had to have it. There's a great mix of neutrals with purple tones. I've been especially loving the top 4 shadows together. They're all creamy, pigmented and very easy to blend. 
Kat Von D Tattoo Brow Pen in Blonde - $19.00 - This was part of the Sephora favourites brow set I got and it's not normally something I would pick up as I prefer brow pencils, but i've been loving using this to fill in the ends of my brows. It gives a precise definition to the brows and the blonde shade isn't too warm so still looks natural. It's lasts really well on the brows as well.

Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm - $8.40 - I'm not normally the biggest pink lover but i've been really enjoy the shade Cotton Candy and the formula of these balms. The colour is sheer but still shows up well on the lips whilst feeling creamy and balm like. I think these are great if your lips tend to be a bit dry. 
Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks - $1.99 - I couldn't wait to put a review of these up since they're really amazing. They're so pigmented, creamy yet matte and have been my bold lip of choice. My favourites are Cherry Picking which is a bright fuchsia colour and Purity Persimmon which is the perfect orangey red. Both look lovely on and last surprisingly well on the lips. 

So those are this months beauty favourites. I'm sure next months will still feature so American beauty bits as I continue to test out everything I bought whilst I was there. What have been some of your beauty favourites in September?


  1. I've tried Balance Me products before (from Birchbox) and I've really like them! My most favorite is the spot clearer one, I've been trying to find it here in the UK for ages and no luck :(

    1. I've not tried too many but definitely interested in trying more now :)
