September Favourites……….Beauty-ful Brightening Sunshine!
September’s been a lovely month; much better than August, which was a real wash out. Here are my favourites from September that didn’t let me down.
Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick, Coral.
I love this multi-function bronzer/highlighter/blush. It really gives skin a healthy, warm glow. I’ve had a really bad cold over the past week and my skin has looked lifeless so, this has been a real life saver. It just restores healthy loveliness and livens up the skin. The coral shade really is so beautiful.
Bobbi Brown Cream Eyeshadow, Galaxy.
I never realized i had this. Really! This is the problem with owning a lot of makeup. You just forget what you have.
Anyway, this is some discovery. I must have bought it over 4 years ago and it’s still fabulous. It’s a grey base with mild pinky gold shimmer. I have worn this with my BB Greige Eye Palette to create a smokey grey eye that compliments my blue/grey eyes so much. BB Cream eyeshadows do not crease or fade. They need more love in the blogging world.
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle, Eau De Parfum
It has felt so lovely and summery this month and this has inspired me to wear what i consider to be my summery perfumes. I got this as a gift last Christmas and it has fast become one of my all time favourites along with my Chanel perfumes.
It’s a lovely sweet blend of blackcurrant, Iris, jasmine, patchouli and vanilla and I get endless compliments when i wear it; even off strangers. It’s that lovely.
I have a few brow products but this one has been my favourite now for a few months. It just matches my own brow shade perfectly. It isn’t ashy either. Easy to work with, blend, sets well and doesn’t fade at all.

Bobbi Brown Correcting Concealer, Bisque.
Previously, i used Touche Éclat alone and i did love it but it never quite kicked those dark circles into touch. It is a wonderful eye brightener and lovely used in conjunction with this more orange based correction concealer.
The BB correcting concealer comes in various shades of salmon pink or orange, depending on your skin tone and these shades neutralize darkness under the eye area.
It has a very opaque and almost waxy texture enabling it to adhere and stay put on the eye area. It doesn’t drag and other brightening concealers can be put on top of it without moving it around. A dream product for my dark circles and it actually works.
That’s it for my September favourites. Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
