September Favourites
September has come to an end and I have another batch of favourites to share with you. Two of these are old favourites I have rediscovered and the rest are new finds that I am a little bit in love with. 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette $90

I have had this one in my collection for ages and I kinda stopped using for a while and I have no idea why because it is gorgeous. It is hard to describe exactly what voodoo magic this stuff works on your skin but there is nothing like it! It really does what it says on the tin and gives me the most beautiful soft illumination to the skin without a hint of glitter - think soft illumination and zero glitter. I use it all over for a really glamorous look that minimises my pores and just makes my skin look way better. I use the middle "Incandescent Light" shade to highlight, "Dim Light" and "Incandescent Light" mixed together and brushed lightly over my face and I can even use the "Radiant Light" shade as a bronzer because I am so incredibly pale.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in 01 Highlight $45

This had been on my wish list for ages before I finally picked it up at the Sephora opening. Why, oh why, did I wait this long? It is the perfect everyday highlighter because it gives a gorgeous highlight that isn't too intense. It lasts throughout the day, is the perfect shade of champagne gold and has a gorgeous, finely milled texture that applies and blends so beautifully. If you want an everyday, work appropriate highlight you need this in your life!

Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflage Concealer $15.95

I was so incredibly ecstatic to find a good drugstore that goes light enough for my fair skin. It is highly pigmented, blends nicely and is significantly cheaper than all the high end concealers I have been limited to for so long. Honestly, it still isn't as good as my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer which I love and adore but I just can't with the price which seems to be higher every time I go to buy a new one.

Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set $126
zoeva rose golden luxury brush set review
While I have been particularly loving these 110 Face Shape and 142 Concealer Buffer brushes for buffing in my concealer but basically, I am completely in love with this whole set! Honestly, apart from the angled liner brush, every single brush in this set is the best of its category I have every used. Basically, I need to buy every Zoeva brush ever made because they are incredible! They are soft, well made, perfectly shaped and all around awesome! Definitely my new favourite brush brand.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in 003 Brown $9.95

Weirdly, I have never really been one for eyeliner. I would only ever really use a black liner in the upper waterline. This shade and formula definitely changed things for me though and I have been really into applying this in my lash line and smudging it in with my Sigma E15 Flat Definer Brush ($26). It is a really natural and subtle shade of brown and the lasting power of this liner is amazing as well as being the perfect formula for smudging.

Look at that smudgy eyeliner goodness!
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat $15.95
Sally hansen insta-dri quick dry top coat review
Where has this been all my life? I used to hate how long my nail polish would take to dry properly. It would always seem kinda dry but then I would dent it and inevitably throw a tantrum. This top coat allows me to dry my mani totally in about 5 minutes after application, which has taken my entire mani time down to about 30 minutes when I used to have to baby my nails for hours. It is also super glossy and applies beautifully. It is by far my new favourite top coat and I have already purchased a back up.

So there you have my September favourites. I would love to know what you have been loving this month and if you love any of my favourite products as much as I do so leave a comment below.
