September Beauty Favourites

Well if it isn't October already. Whoah, where's September gone? The last month has gone by with a blink of an eye. I barely purchased any beauty products during the month of September. What's wrong with me?! Instead I decided to shop my stash. I buy so many products that I always end up storing them away in their drawers and forget about them. Does anyone ever do that or is it just me? I have to say it felt good to delve through my makeup storage and use some products I haven't yet tried. 

September was really a great month in terms of finding new favourites. I delved into the world of Makeup Revolution and I even have another fragrance favourite which is rare for me. I normally stick to the same thing. 

So what are my September Beauty Favourites? Well let's start with Makeup Revolution. A brand that is completely new to me, although I've read many positive reviews, which led to me buying these two lovely palettes. First up is the Makeup Revolution Highlight Palette. As far as I'm aware this is the lightest of two highlighter palettes and I absolutely adore this. I've used it non stop and I find the lightest shade to be my favourite of the three. There will be a full review of this beautiful palette up on the blog soon if you'd like to know more.

The second palette in question is the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice. It's been used pretty much daily and I love every single shade in the palette which is very unusual as I don't always use all the shades in a palette. There is a mix of matte and shimmer blushes, a baked blush and a highlighting shade. I have to admit my most used is the baked blush(in the bottom row at the end). It is super pretty and pigmented(as are all the other shades) and gives a beautiful glow to my cheeks. 

With Makeup Revolution aside, I have found my new HG concealer. Yes it's really that good to be called my HG. Okay so it's my first purchase of it and I'm already dreading it running out and looking to purchasing another. It is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. It has covered up my imperfections so well and it does a fantastic job of covering up my eye bags in the mornings. It's seriously good. 

My newest fragrance favourite is Paco Rabanne Lady Million. I've had it for a while but I've only started using it. It is really quite fitting for this season. I can only describe it as quite a grown up scent. It's very sophisticated and has a slight spicy feel to it. It smells so good and it lingers on my skin for a good couple of hours too. It's such a beautiful scent, I love it. I'm sure I'll be spritzing this perfume through to the end of the year. 

An eyeshadow palette that I have been raving about so much for god knows how long through Twitter is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. It's every beauty bloggers dream, honestly. It's beautifully pigmented, smells of chocolate and each eyeshadow blends so well. There's not one bad shade in there at all. If you'd like to know more about this eyeshadow palette then you can read the review here. There are some swatches too.

Lastly is my newest favourite powder which comes in the form of Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot. As someone with combination skin a powder is a must to cancel out the shine and this powder does just that. I love it so much that I'm opting for it over my MAC MSFN. I recently wrote a review about this powder on the blog here if you'd like to know more details. 

What were you loving in the month of September?
