September Favourites 2016

I'm a bit late with this post which really annoys me because I started it last week but things came up and I completely forgot about it! I don't have too many things to show you anyway, so I thought I'd do a quick round up of last month's favourites. I hope you enjoy. 
Makeup

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF 50+
I found myself using this an awful lot last month, mainly because it covers pretty much everything in a short amount of time. I love applying it with my fingers and within seconds my skin tone is more even, redness is hidden but I still look glowy and fresh. Its definitely one of the best tinted moisturisers/cc cream type products on the market! If you haven't tried it yet, take the plunge. There's even travel size available from Sephora. Genius. 

Kiko Milano Cream Crush Lasting Colour Eyeshadow - 03
I'm pretty sure that one day I will own all of these Kiko cream eyeshadows. They're just amazing. This shade was my go-to because it's a warm purple/red based brown that gives a smokey effect without having to bust out a whole load of eyeshadows. It blends super easily and sets after a minute or two giving you chance to layer and build up the colour intensity. I also started using it to start transitioning my makeup from golden hues to more rusty, grungy tones and it works perfectly.

NYX Lip Lingerie - Bedroom Flirt
This liquid lipstick is basically identical to the Kiko eyeshadow and they look beautiful paired together. I wore this a lot because the colour is just beautiful and very Autumn appropriate. I can also get away with slightly over lining my lips before applying this so my lips look quite a bit fuller which I really like. It's also really comfortable to wear and long lasting which is a bonus. 

Boots Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm
I love this radiance balm. It works as a moisturiser, primer and glow enhancer all in one. I prefer to use it as a primer which I did through most of September. The slight pink base helps brighten the skin, especially when it's looking grey or dull. It also softens the skin and gives a tacky base for foundation to cling to. My foundation always looks extra smooth and flawless over this balm. For £5.99 you can't go wrong.

Skincare

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
Kiran from @alittlekiran and I had a chat about this oil a little while ago and it reminded me how great it is. It's packed with Essential Fatty Acids which helps protect, nourish and hydrate the skin. I started using it again after our chat and after just one use my skin looked healthy, plump and moisturised. It's an amazing multi-tasker and will help with all sorts of skin concerns including scarring, dryness and dull skin. Definitely worth checking out. 

Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
This cream really helped moisturise my eye area. It's quite thick but a little goes a long way and it provides just enough moisture without being heavy or clogging. If you're suffering with dehydrated skin around your eyes, check this out. 

Have you been loving any of these products recently?
