September Favourites 2013

Illamasqua Neutral Palette - £34.00
This little palette has received a lot of love from me this month. You can't really go wrong with neutral colours so a palette filled with four gorgeous shades is always a hit. All four shades, Stealth, Vintage, Wolf and Obsidian are all creamy in texture and blend well. Even though Stealth wasn't exactly what I was expecting, I still love this palette regardless.

Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm - £34.00
I received this sample of the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm from a website and was so so pleased to be able to try it. As a person with oily skin I wouldn't normally think to use a cleansing balm but this has seriously given my face some much needed TLC. I now know why everyone raves about this cleanser and I will be looking out for Feel Unique to have one of their percentage off sales. As much as I'd LOVE to use this product everyday £34.00 is a little out of my price range. I'm now on the look out for a good cleansing balm as I'm completely converted so if anyone has any recommendations or links to reviews you have written I'd appreciate it. 

Ben Nye Glitter Glue - £4.50
A few months ago I was on the hunt for a glitter/pigment adhesive and came across a few at extortionate prices! One in particular was £17.00 and thought the brand should maybe consider re naming to Too Expensive (see what I did there lol). I then found Ben Nye's version online for £4.50 so i decided to give it a try. The product is amazing. When applied, you can apply a pigment or a glitter and it will dry in seconds without having any annoying fall out.   

Boy has my skin needed this lately! The weather lately hasn't exactly given my skin an easy time so it's become very sensitive and in need of moisture. I've been using this after cleansing with the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm and have noticed a big change in my skin. It no longer feels sore or tight and has made a real improvement in smoothness. This cream is perfect for anyone with sore, sensitive, dry or tight skin that needs a bit of a break.

I'm aware I'm probably the last person on the band wagon with this product but better late than never haha. I really didn't buy in to the hype that surrounded this brush but as I lose a lot of hair I thought it might be worth a try. I've been impressed at how easy this detangles hair without ripping. I'm unsure if it's a holy grail product or as great as everyone says just yet but I've enjoyed using it this month. 


  1. I'm dieing to try a tangle teezer - I just wish they were a little less expensive! Love the post :) xx

  2. i've never used a tangle teaser before! My hair is never really that unbrushable. Love the pallette


  3. The Emma Hardie cleansing balm sounds lovely but I agree, I would not spend so much money on a cleanser, no matter how great it was. Maybe try Lush's ultrabland. I have oily skin and it's amazing.
