Autumn is probably my favourite season and I especially love all the fall beauty trends so naturally September was going to be an exciting month for me. I've loved so many things over the last few weeks and I can imagine I will continue to love and use all of these products over the next couple of months too.
Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne.
I have a feeling that this new Jo Malone fragrance will be in a lot of beauty blogger's favourites this month. I actually picked this up at Gatwick on the way to my holiday last week but I knew it would be a firm favourite and have literally worn it every day since. Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt is so unique and fresh, and not normally something I would probably pick as it doesn't have any floral notes but its seriously lovely. Inspired by the English coast and days at the sea side this is the perfect fragrance for those crisp autumn days. I think that this is suitable for everyday wear but its also sophisticated enough to be dressed up or layered with another fragrance for like a night out or something.
Nars Tinted Moisturiser.
The Nars Tinted Moisturiser has well and truly made its way to holy grail status. I featured it in my recent favourite face products post and have been loving using this on a day to day basis as its not as heavy duty as a foundation so I find it lets my skin breathe a lot more. The coverage is still decent enough to stop redness showing through and you can always go in with a concealer if you want more coverage.
Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Cocoa.
I mentioned all the new nail paints from Barry M in my autumn ready beauty products post and I've really enjoyed them all but my favourite has been Cocoa which is like a very dark brown, it could almost look black in some lights. I don't own any colours similar and this is just a perfect shade for the colder seasons of the year . As with all the Barry M gelly paints the formula is very shiny looking and lasts a fair while until it begins to chip.
The Body Shop Honey Bronzer.
I only own one other bronzer which is Nars Laguna and I have it in a duo with the Orgasm blush so the Honey Bronzer from TBS is actually the first bronzer I own that is just a bronzer. I've been using this non-stop since purchasing it and although I love my Laguna bronzer this does make a lovely change where its matte. I think this is going to be an ideal bronzer for me during autumn as its not as glowly in comparison to the Nars bronzer.
Nars Doucer Blush.
Sticking with cheek products, my favourite blush in September was a new one for me from Nars and that is Doucer. I've heard so much about this Nars blush and it really is one of those products that is a bit nothing in the pan but transforms on to the skin. Its a pale rose colour that is again matte, I really love this because its hard to over do it with this product and I think it would definitely suit all skintones. It really compliments a lot of makeup looks and it especially suits all the berry tones I've been wearing either on my eyes or lips this month.
Real Techniques Cheek Brush.
To apply my blush I have been obsessing over the new limited edition cheek brush from Real Techniques. To be honest I could have included all the new limited edition Nic's Picks set in my September favourites as they're all amazing - I've written a full post on the set here - but my favourite is probably the cheek brush. Its just the right size for applying the perfect amount of blush to the cheeks and I've been finding that this brush plus the Nars blush is simply a beautiful combination.
Nars Dragon Girl.
I had two favourite lip products during September and one of them was Nars Dragon Girl, I think I finally came to the conclusion that red lips really are my favourite this month - even though I love rocking so many different lip colours I feel most confident in a red. This is a gorgeous cherry red, and probably one I would opt for wearing on an everyday basis, its super long wearing thanks to its matte formula and is so easy to wear. I've written a full review here if you're interested to read more.
I couldn't do a September favourites post without including a berry lip coloured product - my latest and new favourite is Craving from Mac. Although I always seem to be declaring my love for red lipsticks berry colours are probably up there amongst my favourites to wear as well - I own quite a lot of berry shades. I would say that Craving is like the more opaque sister of Syrup, its a stunning pinky purple winter berry coloured lipstick. Whereas Syrup is a luster finish and not the most opaque in my collection, Craving has an amplified finish making it very creamy and comfortable to wear while still being extremely pigmented.
