Well it's almost here, my first day of my GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) is looming; I start on Monday. Quickly putting aside my fear and nerves I'm returning back to talking about something that I'm much more confident about; beauty favourites! September was a bit humble for me in terms of make up products as I haven't been experimenting too much at all despite making a few new purchases.
One of my favourite products so far this year let alone in September is the Charles Worthington Texturising Spray which I first heard about from Fleur quite a while back. This is something I have being using a lot to help provide my limp hair with some life. I find that it holds reasonably well for me and adds much needed texture to my hair without feeling sticky or crispy. Using this honestly makes me feel less self-conscious because as far as I'm concerned limp and flat hair does nothing for the old self esteem.
A recent purchase has been the Rimmel Brow This Way brow gel which I picked up whilst on offer about two weeks ago for under £3. Now I have included this because I think it does a very good job at holding the brows in place and of course providing a tint to areas that are sparse. Having said that for me I find that you have to be super careful as I do find that far too much product comes out on the brush which can quickly lead to caterpillar brows. So far I have being using a separate little angled brush to take some product away from the original brush and applying it that way. I have to say that method is working pretty well for me so far and is only a minor inconvenience that can be easily overlooked considering how much I paid for it. It's one worth trying if you're looking for a brow product on a budget.
The REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser* is a product I have returned to in a bid to use up some skincare products. My thoughts on this cleanser still remain the same as to when I initially reviewed it therefore I've found myself really enjoying using this once again as a first or even second cleanse.
Essie Ballet Slippers has been on my nails a lot recently as I have being trying to grow them for what must be the millionth time in my life. I find that having my nails painted really does help with this rather gross habit however anything darker than a polish such as this just looks ridiculous on short nails like mine therefore I have to wear something very neutral. It is in itself a beautiful polish that looks gorgeous on, I absolutely love it and can see why it was very popular upon its release.
The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette* was sent to me as part of a festival style post in collaboration with Folli Follie last month. It has since that day been quite literally the palette I have turned to every morning, it's simply incredible. I have to be honest and admit that for quite a long time I dismissed this palette because I just wasn't too keen on the way it looked. I have always been such a loyal fan of shimmer eye shadows that I was very quick to disregard this particular palette however boy was I wrong! If you're looking for an easy go to no fuss palette for every day then this could be the one for you. Like all Urban Decay eye shadows the products are super pigmented, blend like a dream and last really well once applied; I simply cannot fault this product.
Once again the dry brush has made an appearance of which since I made the commitment of looking after my body better as well as my skin I have found that this has become a staple item within my bathroom. Using this in circular motions it really helps to remove any dead skin cells and to get the blood flowing within the skin.
