September Favorites!

Hi everyone,
Today I am going to share with you some of my favorite products from this month. I honestly cannot believe that we are almost at the end of the year. Anyway let's begin!

Collection Lasting Perfection - I have been addicted to this concealer for all of this month especially for under the eyes. This concealer never fails me and recently it is all I have been using. If you have never tried it, I highly suggest you do.
Kiko Provocative Pink Blush - This is a recent makeup buy for me and I have been loving it. I quite like how it is not very pigmented as it just adds that little pop of colour to the cheeks. The colour itself is a super, wearable pink shade that goes with everything and since there is two colours in the blush you can custom the blush to your perfect shade.
Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit - You all know I love love love this duo. The highlight shade I use everyday but this month I have especially been loving the bronzer shade. It is the perfect shade for my skin, not too dark or light, it is very pigmented and it lasts a super long time on the skin.
Revlon Laquer Balm in Demure - It feels like forever since I have mentioned this in a blog post. Recently I have been using this for school as it keeps my lips moisturized, glossy and gives it a tint of colour.

Skincare/ Body care
Garnier Micellar Water - This has been a staple in my skincare routine this month for on a school day when I am too lazy to deep clean my face. I try not to use it everyday but every so often it does a great job at getting all of the dirt out of my face.

Batiste Dry Shampoo - Not going to lie, I go through phases with dry shampoo, I either use it constantly or I don't use it at all, but this month I have really been liking Batiste. I find that the new formula is a little more clear when applied to my hair, and it instantly gives it more volume and texture.

Topshop Jamie Jeans - Sorry Joni jeans, but we are over, I have found a better pair. I use to love my Joni jeans from Topshop but there was always something about them I didn't like, and I think it was the fact that they were so thin. After doing some research I found that Jamie jeans were seen as the better version of Joni jeans so I had to try them, and I have to agree. Jamie jeans are still high waisted and skinny fitting but they have more of a jean feel to them rather than a jegging feel, I would highly recommend them.

Films/ Tv
Twilight - Can you believe I have never seen these films until this month? I know! I was scrolling through my Netflix realizing that Twilight kept showing up, loads of people had recommended it to me but I never got round to watching it. I actually finished all five films within two days, which you could call obsessive but to me that is a sign of a good film. Anyway it is definitely a must see, I love the story line and it is such a beautiful film.
Footloose - I can definitely put this film in my top three as I have seen it more times than I can count. It is an amazing film which deserves so much more recognition. I do prefer the newer one just because it appeals to me more but you should all definitely watch it. I think the main reason I love it so much is because of the dancing and music, it is not your cheesy love story and I think it is quite mature which I like.

Illuminate - I don't know whether this counts as a favorite, just because it hasn't been out for that long, but I have been obsessed with this album. In case you didn't know Illuminate is Shawn Mendes' new album and it is spectacular. Each and every song has something unique and beautiful about it. You should all go and give it a listen. My favorite songs from the album at the moment are Ruin and Patience.

I really hope you enjoyed this blog post. Let me know in the comments what you have been loving this month. Have a great day!
