OK where did September go? Quickest month of the year but also a very exciting one for me as I moved house & now call the beautiful county of Cornwall home. If there are any other Cornish beauty bloggers say Hello in the comments. Now lets see what I have products I have rediscovered this month.
I only have two NARS Blushers and I used to use them all the time but as my collection grew I used them less, but I have fallen back in love with Orgasm this past month. I had forgotten how beautiful it looks on the cheeks. I do like it for more of an evening blush but if you use it lightly it can work for daytime too. It does have a touch of gold shimmer running through but it catches the light and gives you healthy glow to your skin. I like the peachy pink colour on my skin. I also like NARS packaging it always feels so lovely and luxurious.
I love L’Oreal eyeshadows and adore all four shades in this quad, these are so pretty and very me. I bought this at the end of 2014 last & got quite a lot of use from it then like most makeup items it was forgotten about. I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered it because it is gorgeous. This quad isn’t for matte eyeshadow fans because all four colours have shimmer in them, its not disco ball glitter but they have a hint of shimmer / frost finish .I love the darkest plum colour & think it looks so pretty worn alone all over the lid. The packaging of this is slim and compact it looks and feels quite luxurious.
I like to wear this either under my foundation to perk my skin up or I mix it in with my foundation for an extra reflective boost. This gives me a healthy glow and does a good job at evening out my skin tone. I have the shade Champagne 02 & have found this creamy pink shade is pretty good at dulling the redness in my skin. Its lovely and lightweight so it doesn’t feel greasy on the skin at all, it just gives you a dewy fresh healthy glow. I also think its a great base to apply your foundation on top of , think of it as a primer with benefits & it keeps your complexion looking fresh & bright all day.
This product wasn’t in the depths of my stash, I have had it looked out for a while, I just hadn’t found the best way to use it. It was one of those products that I was a little scared to use. It can look a little OTT if you don’t stick to the ‘Less is More’ mantra. This Wonderbronze is a gorgeous shimmer brick made up of 5 shades ranging from champagne to deep brown, all the shades have shimmer running through them. I like to swirl my brush through them all and apply it to the tops of my cheeks & it gives a beautiful bronze glow. Its a bronzer and highlighter all in one now I apply it with a light hand I have mastered the subtle glow. You get a decent sized mirror which is always a bonus. I have to say the Soap & Glory face products are fantastic value for money. I have a few now & rate them all very highly.
This a gorgeous creamy berry shade and it feels so smooth and soft on my lips. The staying power isn’t incredible because the formula is creamy but it does last a couple of hours. The colour is intense and has a satin finish which makes it look beautiful on the lips. I think this berry shade is a beautiful Autumnal colour & I’m going to keep it in my everyday makeup stash for October too. The packaging of these lippies is beautiful too and it looks more expensive than it is. I’m not much of a lipstick lover but these DHC offerings are really pretty.
