September is always well-known for being one of the busiest months, with starting school and getting back into routines that have been forgotten over the holidays. However, this month has been one of the busiest of my life. I used and experimented with a fair amount of makeup this month, yet was only impressed and stuck with a few. So, here are my monthly favourites!
I love Models Own polishes and I've been looking for quite a while for the perfect red. This is not too bright yet still not too dark, and as usual, Models Own formulas cannot be faulted. This has been on my nails a lot this month as it makes a nice addition, especially with a monochrome outfit! The one thing I would love to be improved on every Models Own polish is the brush. The brushes are fairly small but if they were a touch bigger, a lot more of the nail could be coated without painting and painting.
MAC lipstick in Creme Cup
When I posted the review of MAC's Creme D'Nude lipstick back here, I said that I would prefer Creme Cup as it's more pinky than beige. At the beginning of the month I picked this up and it's been on my lips almost everyday! It really is 'my lips but better' and it's such a cute, girly everyday shade. It has a cremesheen formula which means it's super super creamy and not drying at all.
I also did a review on this too back here, and said it was perfect for creating the perfect winged liner. This somehow sunk to the bottom of my makeup draws and after a good clean-out, it was rediscovered. This liner is absolutely faultless. The nib isn't too thick or thin and it holds just the right amount of product. The way the nib of the liner is shaped means that it's crazily easy to create a simple cat-eye.
Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Liner in Espresso Ink
I like to alternate and switch up my eyeliner, as some days I prefer it bold and defined, whereas others I prefer it subtle and smokey. After chatting to one of the lovely Bobbi Brown online makeup artists, she recommended me this gel eyeliner as I have dark hair and green eyes. It's quite steep for an eyeliner at £17.50 but in my eyes it's worth every penny! It's creamy and doesn't crease or leave a huge brown line on your eyelid, which is always a bonus.
Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express mascara
After my beloved Jerome Alexander mascara being well and truly dried up, I was experimenting with my stash to see what other beauties I had in there, when I came across this. I used to absolutley hate this mascara with a passion, but gave it another whirl and I am now in love. It used to clump up my lashes and make them look quite spidery, but now it does the complete opposite! I am so confused, but I love it.
