September Favourites

September has been a busy month for me, with the majority of my assignments due for the trimester falling in a two-week period my month has included sleep deprivation, running late, battling to get my essays within the word count (I always write too much, sometimes 1000 words too much) and so my favourites for this month are products  that have allowed me to get my make-up on with only 5 minutes to spare. Having said that there are a lot of products I have worn and absolutely fallen head over heels in love with!!!

I have already raved about this but, the Maybelline Pure Dream BB Cream is absolutely amazing. I was expecting the worst because bb creams never seem to do what you want but that all changed when I put this on my face. Perfect for everyday wear and when you're in a rush. I also find that this helps keep my skin under control, bonus! :) Coverage is light-medium and it lasts a good 5 hours before showing any sign of wear. 

Face of Australia's 'Foxy Roxy' polish only came home with me a couple of weeks ago but it is already one of my favourite polishes. I wrote a review on it where I raved about how awesome it was (click here to read that review). 

Another polish, I brought Revlon's 'Copper Penny' nail polish when MyChemist Warehouse had 50% off Revlon. I haven't gotten around to writing a review on this yet but there is one in works...long story cut short, it's a stunning metallic warm copper colour, formula is divine and requires only one coat. It also dries pretty quick which is great for clumsy old me.

Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in 'Warm Me Up' has been sitting my lipstick drawer for ages and I've barely worn it...for some reason I thought it was too bold for me. Well obviously I was off with the fairies because this is such a lovely colour, it lasts a really long time and feels super creamy. I'm going to have to write a review on this because it flew past all of my expectations. Also, there is a funny story behind this lippy. I had been watching a lot of youtube videos last week (in an attempt to avoid doing my assignments) and one of them raved about this lipstick and said how they had heard heaps of good things about it from other youtubers. I didn't even realise I had this lippy in my collection until a few days later when for some unknown reason I decicded to wear it and glanced at the name label. This couldn't be a sign that I have too many lipsticks, could it???

Burts Bees Ultra Conditioning Balm has been my go to balm for this month. I think I included it in last months favourites too so won't say too much about it. I really enjoy using this balm though.

Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in 275 'Mauve Twist' knocked my socks off when I first wore it. It is such a versatile colour, is surprisingly pigmented and has good lasting power. It also seems to stain the lips ever so lightly without drying them out. I feel like a broken record because I keep raving about all of these products, but it is a "favourites" post and I have discovered and used some fabulous products this month.

Schwarzkopf Hair Repair Colour Protect Express Repair Leave-in Conditioner. Late last month I went ombre and having heard that ombre was bad for my hair I picked this up in an attempt to keep my locks healthy. Don't usually look after my hair that well but I have really liked using this product (when I remember). It is really easy to use and makes my hair feel really healthy. I'm not really a "hair-care product person" so don't really know what to say...but I do like this!

Nivea Pure & Natural Facial Cleansing Wipes I'm not really a "wipe" person but I received these for free when I won them in a competition so decided to use them to take off swatches. Sometimes I will be studying and if I notice the sun peeping out from behind the clouds I rush around collecting lipsticks and whatever to swatch. Which is great until you realise your arm is covered in lipstick and you need to get rid of them before you have spread lipstick over everything...cue these wipes...They work pretty well to remove any products I've swatched that are refusing to budge. Never used them on my face though so can't say if they fulfill their purpose.

So that was what I loved for the month of September. A lot of lip products when you think about it...I think it was the month of lip products!!! It also appears that there are a lot of products I need to write reviews for.
