September Beauty Favourites + Empties
Monday, 8 Oct 2018
I am quite impressed at how on time I am this month, I am quite proud of myself! Today I have my September Beauty Favourites to share with you, as well as some empties, which all happen to be candles!
As I mentioned in my September First Impressions, the *Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Replenishing HydraGel Complex is my current favourite day time moisturiser! It works well over serums and under sunscreen, and I love the lightweight feel. The texture is absolutely dreamy, it is cooling and hydrating, and perfect for warmer weather. Pop it into the fridge on those super hot days for an instant cool me down!
I don’t think the Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Defense SPF 45 is still available, which is a pity, because it is fantastic! It is a very lightweight spf, with a sheer tint that evens out the skin. I love using this after a skin treatment while my skin is flaking, etc, as it doesn’t emphasise the flaking, but just evens out the skin nicely.
Next up I have two makeup items, on the top is the stunning Catrice Ultimate Matt Lipstick in Coffee, MATTmoiselle and at the bottom is the Top Shop Cheek Jelly in Reign. The lipstick is a beautiful rosy mauve shade, it is so matte, yet comfortable, smooth to apply and long lasting, and most of all affordable. I have been drawn to cream/gel cheek products recently, it gives a much more healthy, youthful finish as opposed to a powder. The Cheek Jelly gives my cheeks a lovely flush, looks natural and lasts pretty long.
And now for some Empties:
Premium Jasmine and Magnolia Candle from MRP Home– This candle is amazing, it burns well, and the scent fills the room. Luckily I bought a few backups since it seems as if it isn’t available in this stunning glass dome anymore, however, the scent is available in other packaging.
Ginger Rose Scented Candle- Also from MRP Home, this candle is nice, but not as great as the one above. It burns well, but the scent doesn’t carry through too much.
Heart & Home Jasmine Daydream- I love this candle too, as you can see I love a Jasmine scent. This burns well and smells amazing, I have already bought a rose scented one from them.
That’s all for today, what are your September Beauty Favourites?
