September Favourites 2015

Goodbye September, and hello October AND autumn! I was seriously loving some products in September and I have been so excited to share them with you all today. So let’s just get on with it!

  • The Body Shop Glazed Apply Bath Jelly.

I know this is a product from Christmas 2014, but I don’t care. I fell in love with this when it first came out, so I picked it up in the January sales. Since then I have used it once in a while as a treat and this stuff lasts ages! Only recently have I used it more than previously and I am really sad that I am one or two more uses away from this being finished. I don’t think Glazed Apple is coming back this year, instead it appears to be being replaced by Glazed Plum… Which I don’t think will be as good but whatever. This has left me feeling lovely and soft after a long soak, and smelling of yummy apples. I hope The Body Shop bring back the bath jellies so that I can pick up the other scents this year.

  • Jo Malone Cologne in Earl Grey & Cucumber (review here).

Ever since getting this thanks to my job, I have loved it and let me tell you, it has lasted AGES! I used this on a shopping afternoon and drinks evening out recently in September and I really loved using it. It lasts ages, smells gorgeous and lady like, as well as just being a complete classic for me now. It’s definitely going to be my scent for my graduation! It’s just a shame it costs so much, but I can see this bottle lasting me years as I only use it when I really fancy it. I don’t go crazy with the bottle otherwise it’ll all be used up really quickly.

  • Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Balm.

If there is a lip balm that I go back to every autumn and winter, it’s this. It’s just so creamy and moisturising and it really does help me when my lips are incredibly dry, which they have been a lot lately. Not only that, but I haven’t been that bothered about wearing lipstick this month and I really don’t know why. I’ve just felt “meh” whenever I look at my lipsticks and end up slathering this on before I leave the house. It’s just perfect, and I can never say anything wrong about it!

  • Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Softening Nourishing Lotion.

I stopped using this a while ago, only recently remembering that I owned it when going through my beauty cupboard. Instead of using this as a body lotion I’ve been using it as a in shower body lotion, and also to shave with and I don’t care if you’re not meant to do this, because it works really well for me. I don’t get time to apply body lotion after I get out of the shower or bath these days, so I need to keep moisturised somehow. Being able to apply this all over and rinse it off after I’ve used a shower gel is really good, and it leaves me feeling soft and smooth all day! It also smells really nice! For shaving it really does the job, and has saved me using all my expensive shave gel too.

  • Hawaiian Tropic Island Berry Lip Gloss.

I picked this up a couple of months ago and have been using it none stop. It’s a really summery moisturising lip gloss with SPF 15, perfect for holidays, which is why I picked it up. I didn’t really wear any lipstick when I went on holiday so I doubt I will do the next time I go, so this is a great option to wear from day to evening. This smells and tastes delicious, just like island berries and has a light pink/red shade to it. I keep this in my backpack to apply when out on the go. It isn’t sticky which I really like, but due to that it doesn’t last as long as I’d like it to, which is pretty annoying. I picked this up in Asda for Β£3, but in Boots it retails for for nearly Β£8, shocker! So if you’re wanting to pick this up, go to your local Asda and pick up a bargain!

So, those are my favourites from September. They’re nothing special, I’ll admit that but they’re essentials to be honest and ones I have been loving this month for sure.

What beauty products are you loving from September? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, take care and here’s to October!

Lush Halloween & Christmas 2015 LEAKED! Part Two – Christmas

It’s here! Part two, and it’s going to be a long post. There is more information about the Christmas products than there is about the Halloween ones. Apart from the gifts, everything that is on offer looks to have been leaked, which is pretty exciting! I don’t know what September 15th will hold, but from what I have read from official UK Lush stores on Instagram, the winter range (Halloween and Christmas) will be out at the start of October, SO we have less than a month to wait! Exciting huh?

Without further ado, I’m going to share with you all what we’ll be getting awesome for Christmas this year.

Bath Bombs (and one Bath Melt):

Ignoring the bath melt at the bottom, this is the line up for the bath bombs! Not including Lord Of Misrule (as that’s a Halloween product) there are 10 bath bombs all together, 2 of them being new, whilst the rest are returning products.

I am of course really happy to see that So White is back for another year as it’s my favourite bath bomb from Lush and always reminds me of Christmas time. I remember when it was teeny, but it’s really evolved over the years, which is great to see. Alongside that I’m happy to see the return of Shoot For The Stars, as I loved it when it first came out, but never got to try it last year. I’m also glad to see that Father Christmas and Golden Wonder are back, as I got to try Golden Wonder thanks to the Boxing Day sales, and luckily have one left, which I’ll be using soon! It’s such a gorgeous bath bomb and I’ll be stocking up as and when I can. As for Father Christmas I wanted to try that so much last year as it shares its scent with Snow Fairy, my favourite from Lush! I’ll be making sure I try it this year.

The one product I am SUPER excited about is Yog Nog. Oh my GOD! I loved the soap last Christmas and bought myself some when I did some shopping in Lush, and you know what? I STILL own it. I haven’t used it, and it’s still in the packaging. I intend to start using it soon, but now that there will be a bath bomb out with the same scent, I’ll be buying these up as much as possible. Inside the bath bomb there is a luxury bath oil and also contains some bubble bar grating so this bubbles up when popped into the bath. Isn’t that just the perfect bath bomb???

There is only one bath melt being released this year, which is of course Snow Angel. I’m quite sad to see there will only be one as I really wish Lush would bring back the old Snow Fairy Bath Melt. That was probably one of my favourite Lush products from Christmas in 2009/2010 and they never brought it back. Sad faces all round.

Bubble Bars & Resusable Bubble Bars:

I’m really excited for some of the newbies that are coming our way with the bubble bars! There are 5 altogether, 3 of them being new and all of them sound amazing! I always love the bubble bars that Lush come out with, but this year they just look and sound really lovely.

Every year I love that Lush bring back Candy Mountain, even though it is just a nicer looking version of Creamy Candy. There are quite a few bubble bars that have gone this year, so Lush have had to make sure they replace them with goodies, which they have done! I’m going to be trying ALL the new ones. Five Gold Rings sounds really creamy and delicious, and looks really nifty too. I just hope it isn’t too glittery, otherwise I may just have to leave it… I hate when bath products are glittery, I get covered in it! Peeping Santa is another one which sounds delicious! It sounds like it’ll smell of yummy strawberries, and you can never go wrong with something like that. It would probably go really nice with So White Bath Bomb to give you a fruity bath! Finally the other new bubble bar that I am excited about is Bar Humbug. I’m not the BIGGEST fan of liquorice scents, but I’m pretty sure with Christmas around the corner this will be perfect. I’ll definitely give it a smell before I buy it mind, just incase I don’t like it.

I love reusable bubble bars, and I’m super excited to pick up Magic Wand! I’m sure this has been out previous years but sadly I’ve never bought it before, something I’m going to make sure I do this year! It’s said to share its scent with Snow Fairy, so I can’t pass this product up!

FUN:

I can’t say I am the biggest fan of FUN. I’ve used it before and enjoyed it, don’t get me wrong and really liked it, but I would prefer to pick up other products over FUN. The main thing I love using it for is to shave with. I recently used some of my boyfriends Pink FUN and I loved it. So maybe I’ll see if I like the look of one of these. I can’t really imagine how any of these will smell to be honest, but I’ll be giving them all a sniff, and see what I think. I love how creative you can get with them all though! It makes for something cool to pop into a friends stocking, something I might do with my friends and family.

Shower Gels & Jellies:

If there is one thing that I get excited for every year it’s Snow Fairy Shower Gel. Ever since I can remember I’ve bought at least a tiny bottle of the good stuff to keep me going. I still have my bottle from last Christmas, something I’m probably going to keep for when I go on holiday as a treat to wash with in the evenings before nights out.

I’ll be picking up loads of huge bottles of Snow Fairy to keep me going throughout the year! I’ll also be keeping my eye on it in the Boxing Day sales, I missed out last year, which was a shame. Alongside that I may pick up one of the jellies, I’m unsure at this moment in time as I’ve never been that bothered about Snowman, but Santa’s Belly does sound rather nice for winter! I’ll give them a sniff and see how I feel!

Soap:

I’m never a huge fan of the soap from Lush, as the majority of it leaves me with bad allergic reactions, however there are a couple of the Christmas soaps that I can get away, and I can’t resist either to be honest! There are 5 soaps, only one being a new face this year. Last year I picked up Reindeer Rock and Yog Nog, two soaps I LOVED so much and ones I’ll be picking up again this year. Reindeer Rock smells of The Comforter Bubble Bar, which is really comforting. Yog Nog reminds me of cheesecake, which again is comforting. Old Father Time is the new soap this year, which really isn’t something I’ll be buying, sad to say.

Shower Products:

Bar the roulade, I love everything on this page! Christingle Body Conditioner sounds like a gorgeous and menthol mint conditioner, which will be good for cooling down in the summer, and maybe even in the winter. I love mint scents, and Intergalactic Bath Bomb (review here) will work perfectly with this one before I go out for Christmas parties, or maybe even after a day of Christmas shopping. Either way I really can’t wait to pick this up and I can see me stocking up so I have enough to last me through the year. The Salt And Peppermint Bark Shower Scrub looks and sounds amazing, not to mention delicious. This would be great to use alongside Christingle and Intergalactic to give me a proper minty scent and feel! Icing On The Cake does sound delicious, but I’m not a huge fan of the roulade, so I’ll more than likely give this a miss.

Body:

I’ve never used Dusting Powders before but I’ve always wanted to. Last year I was going to pick up First Snow, but I left it as I didn’t think I would use it in the end. Now that Lush will be bringing out Fairy Dust I’ll be making sure I pick some of this stuff up! I would wear it before nights out, and for days out with my boyfriend. I’d be tempted to buy it and take it on holiday with me to wear in the evenings, something I still might do. I’m so excited to give Fairy Dust a smell though! I can see it flying off the shelves alongside Snow Fairy.

Face & Lips:

I’m not all that fussed about the face and lip products this year, but that’s mostly due to the fact I already own both the lip products from last year and the year before. Although I would love the Santa Baby Lip Tint in the new tube form! I may just pick this up to replace my old tin version. I might try and grab a sample of the Cranberry Festive Fresh Face Mask as I don’t feel it will do much for my skin but it would be lovely to try.

Sadly those are all the Lush Christmas products for Lush 2015! As I have said previously, I can only imagine what America get is exactly the same as what we get too. I hope so anyway as there are some gorgeous products that I can’t wait to get my hands on.

So, now you know what products are out for Christmas, what are you most looking forward to buying? I’ve already stated mine, I want to hear yours. Make sure to let me know your thoughts on the 2015 range in the comments section.

Until next time, take care all and keep those eyes peeled for Lush news!

Lush Halloween & Christmas 2015 LEAKED! Part One – Halloween

I’m super excited to write this post at the moment! I had recently discovered the leaked Halloween products, but in the past ten or fifteen minutes I’ve heard about Christmas leaks, and boy are they good! I haven’t been this excited for Lush Christmas products since 2009! I know it’s probably naughty sharing leaked products with you all, but honestly I am just too on the edge of my seat to wait for an official announcement.

As these leaks are from America, I’m not even 100% sure if we’ll get these over here in the UK, but I’m pretty sure we will, and maybe more considering Lush is from the UK originally. But I just couldn’t help but share, I know a few blogs from over the pond are at the moment, so I don’t see the harm in doing the same. I’ll be talking about which items I’m excited about and why.

I want to say thank you to Golden Glamor for all the pictures and information on these leaks, she’s been very thorough about everything, which is amazing and due to that I have copied and pasted some of her information here, as she just explains it all better than I do! You can read her Halloween post here, and her Christmas post here.

So here it is, Lush Halloween and Christmas 2015, let’s start with Halloween first for part one of this two part post.

I apologise that the picture for this isn’t that great, but it’s the only one that is lurking around the internet at the moment. Lush Halloween this year is mostly Lord Of Misrule themed, which I should have seen coming to be fair! As usual, the bath bomb will be making an appearance, which I think is staying around until after Christmas. There will also be the Oxford Street exclusive shower cream and Aliens and Monsters FUN coming to stores, which is pretty exciting! I’ve never been a HUGE fan of Lord Of Misrule I’m more into my sweet scents, but I want to give it a chance this year. I really do like the smell of the shower gel. Alongside those three there will also be Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar which I’m sure came out last year and has a boozy citrus scent to it. The one product I am most excited about though is the bat shaped shower jelly Nightwing! No one knows quiet yet what it’ll smell of… Hopefully not Lord Of Misrule! πŸ˜› There are rumours it will replace Sweetie Pie for Halloween and smell of blackcurrant. It would be pretty awesome if that were the case, AND if it is I’ll be picking up multiple pots to last me for as long as possible!

So the list includes (thanks to GG for this list):

Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb
Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar
Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream
Nightwing Shower Jelly
Aliens and Monsters FUN

Of course there will be gift sets too (thanks to GG for this list):

Pumpkin Heebie Jeebie – includes Sparkly Pumpkin and Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb
Bat Heebie Jeebie – includes Nightwing and Lord Of Misrule shower cream
Firecracker – includes Cinders, Experimenter, and Lord Of Misrule Bath Bombs
Full Moon KnotWrap – a super adorable, spooky knot wrap with a purple moon and bat outlines.

I’m pretty damn excited for Halloween! I don’t know when it’ll be out in the UK, but I imagine towards the end of this month. I know where my earnings will be going. πŸ˜‰

So now we’ve spoken about Halloween, we can talk about Christmas… BUT due to how big that post is going to be, that will be up on my blog tomorrow. I feel mean making you guys wait, but oh well, it’ll be worth it! It’s going to be a very Lush themed week on my blog this week, but is that really a bad thing?

What do you think of the Halloween products that Lush are bringing our way this year? Are you a Lord Of Misrule fan and mega excited about all the goodies? Or do you hate it, and wish Lush had brought out something different? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time though, take care.

Autumn is Looming…

Image taken from weheartit.com

It’s September, my favourite month of the year, and yet I don’t know why! I think it’s due to years of going back to school, college, and uni, and being able to see a new year as a fresh start to look cool, be confident, do well in my studies, and just sort my life out. Even though I’m no longer in education, I still see September as this fresh start. September means more to me than just that however, it’s also the start of autumn and the best fashion of the year comes about again. Hot drinks out in coffee shops are now no longer an excuse, but a necessity, and soon enough Christmas will catch up to us.

Image taken from weheartit.com

Every blogger and their dog are obsessing and talking about autumn at the moment, and whilst autumn isn’t officially here until the end of the month, it doesn’t hurt to start preparing, and with how the year has been so far it’ll soon fly by!

  • Hot Ribena.

This is something I recently discovered when I went away to the Lake District with my boyfriend and our friends. I drank loads of it before we went home and it was such a perfect comfort drink. Since then I have bought a huge bottle of Ribena light and in the mornings before I head to work I make sure to have a cup to warm me up. Mornings really are getting chilly now, something I had kind of forgotten about.

  • Baggy hoodies.

Preferably a significant others! Since I met him, I’ve had my boyfriends Funeral For A Friend hoodie, it’s one of the nicest hoodies I’ve ever stolen from someone (infact it’s probably the only one!) as it’s so baggy, soft, and comfortable to wear whether you’re going out for the day, popping out to do some errands, or something to wear around the house. As well as that I have my favourite hoodie that I wear, my fox Animal hoodie that I got when I went on holiday in January. I intend to take this hoodie with me again to live in whilst I’m there when it isn’t warm.

  • Relaxing evenings.

With nights getting shorter, evenings in are some of the best, especially before November and December when all the Christmas parties are around. It’s just nice to stay inside, wrap up warm with a hot drink, and watch movies or play games. My relaxed evenings of choice for this autumn are looking to be playing Minecraft with my boyfriend and our friends, reading, watching South Park, and continuing with my novel.

  • Shopping for autumn essentials.

I really need some retail therapy soon, when I’m unsure but after I handed in my dissertation last Wednesday, I had a look around the shops at all the lovely autumn pieces and fashion that is coming out for this year. I gravitated towards a lot of pieces in Primark, and was tempted to buy some bits and pieces, but I left it due to money. I can see me wrapping up in snuggly jumpers, ripped black skinny fit jeans, and of course my new Dr Martens boots.

Image taken from weheartit.com

  • Ankle boots.

If there is a shoe that was designed for a season, it’s the ankle boot for autumn. Whether it has a heel, a platform, or whatever other quirky design they’re perfect for when the weather is getting colder. My boot of choice this autumn will be my Dr Martens, my new ones to be precise. Back in March my boyfriend was kind enough to buy me the limited edition Adventure Time Jake Dr Martens (post about them here!), but with a catch that I wouldn’t be allowed them until I’d finished my masters… Well now I’ve finished I’ll soon be able to wear these bad boys! Probably this weekend to be exact. I’ll probably wear these loads, especially when the weather is icy outside in winter time. With all the burgundy and mustard shades flying around for autumn, these are sure to fit in.

  • Comfort food.

I love food, I’ll admit that. I literally see food and eat it. BUT since starting my diet before July I’ve learnt when to say no to certain foods again… Although recently I have been a tad on the naughty side. But with the weather getting colder again, I can’t help but eat that little more and I especially sway towards carbs… A lot of carbs! My favourite autumn food is definitely macaroni cheese. It’s just so warming and gorgeous on a cold evening in front of the TV or a games console. Pizza is also a good one, but I don’t mean takeaway, I mean a massive one you can cook yourself and share. It saves money too, as well as unnecessary calories. Not only is dinner the time for comfort food, but breakfast can be too. My favourite being pancakes with bacon, something I made for me and my boyfriend over the weekend. He had honey with his as we never had any maple syrup and I had mine dry… Because I like my pancakes savory. Another pancake breakfast I want to make this year is blueberry pancakes, with blueberry syrup. I’m not done talking about food yet! Something else I love to eat during autumn is soup, and lots of it! I make my Chinese chicken and sweetcorn soup most weeks in autumn and winter, but I still want to try and make something else. Sweet potato and chicken soup is one I want to try and make soon… I might give it a go this week, see how I get on!

I can probably think of loads more things to talk about in the run up to autumn, but alas I want to save more for when autumn is actually here!

So, how many of my readers are excited for autumn and this month? Maybe you hate the colder weather and months? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time though, take care all and I hope you all had a great weekend.

September Wish List

I’m so poor, I swear to God. I shouldn’t even be making a wish list! But it’s called a wish list for a reason… So it’s kind of acceptable, right?

I’m lusting after quite a lot with Christmas just around the corner and my parents offering to get me a gift for finishing my MA. But even so, I’m still poor and I can’t even treat myself after finally finishing uni. Oh well, when I have money I’ll treat myself for sure!

However, until then I’ll just have to lust after these gorgeous things. Oh be still my beating heart… There are quite a few let’s say luxurious items on my wish list this month and that’s because that is all I seem to be lusting over at the moment. Which in turn is extremely annoying!

  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Coca Cola Visions of Georgia Green.

I love me some OPI polishes and one of the collections I love the most definitely has to be the Coca Cola collection from last summer. I picked up some of the shades in January in the miniature form and I love them all! So when I heard that OPI were bringing out a couple of more shades to go alongside the collection, I wondered what they would look like, and of course they’re gorgeous. There are two and the one that I loved the most is this gorgeous metallic shade called Visions of Georgia Green. This looks like a pretty sheer polish and one I would wear throughout the year. I’d love to pick this up for when I go on holiday, but we shall see!

  • Christian Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet EDT.

I recently got this as a sample in the post and it really does smell beautiful! I remember giving this a sniff when I was on holiday in January and it didn’t seem to smell as nice then as it does now I have the sample. I’m very wary about EDT perfumes due to how weak they can smell, as well as how much they need to be topped up. It’s just a really fresh and light scent that smells beautiful. This isn’t cheap, but I think when I go on holiday I’ll pick this up in duty free, or whilst I’m away considering it’s a tax free island.

  • Nintendo New 3DS XL Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Bundle.

This is something I have already mentioned on my wish list, I’m pretty sure it was last month to be honest. BUT in August Nintendo finally announced that they would release a bundle with a special edition 3DS, as well as the new Animal Crossing game. I LOVE Animal Crossing, it really does make me happy and helps me to relax when I’m stressed out as well. My boyfriend has mentioned buying me this for Christmas, but I would ideally like it for when it comes out. It isn’t out for another month yet, so we shall see what happens.

  • Lush Granny Takes A Dip Bubble Bar.

I never liked the original bath bomb version of this. I found it smelt way too strong and if anything gave me massive headaches. However I really did like this one due to the scent not being a strong. It would be one of those treats to have after pole dance fitness in the coming autumn and winter times. I may treat myself to this soon, especially since my MA is now finished. But I shall see… I have plenty of Lush products to get used up.

  • Microsoft Xbox One.

This is a luxurious item and one I doubt I will get for a very long time… Probably Christmas if at all! Me and my boyfriend always play Minecraft when we’re at his with two of our friends and it’s definitely become a love of mine. Minecraft like Animal Crossing is such a relaxing game, and after being so stressed out lately, and my anxiety being really high, it has helped me calm down and unwind. When I felt poorly on Monday I played Minecraft and it really did help. So I would like my own Xbox One so I can play with my boyfriend and our friends from my own home, instead of just from his. Of course, this is expensive and the TV I have in my room would also struggle to run it’s graphics on it… So it would be rendered useless I guess.

  • Yankee Candle in Cotton Candy.

This is one of the special appearances that Yankee Candle bring out on a regular basis and one I have been eyeing up for a while. I gave this a sniff last month and it smells delicious! I was imagining it would be really strong and sickly, but it’s actually really light and smells like sugar. It’s a very nice scent, and one I would like to own soon for when autumn time comes. I think if I have any cash spare soon, and it’s still for sale, I’ll pick it up.

  • Vivienne Westwood Henry Winter Tartan Bag.

As old readers will know, I love Vivienne Westwood bags and it’s a brand I’ve always wanted to own something of, especially a bag. I saw my dream one at the start of the year, but I made the mistake of not ordering and missed my chance. However, I have soon realised not to let such a good deal in the sales slip by again so I’m making sure to keep my eyes peeled out for one of these bags for in the future. If I don’t get a new one, I’ll try and pick up a second hand one from eBay. I’ve eyed a couple up that I like the look of, but it’s about parting with such a large amount of money, without actually seeing said item first. I’ll have to see… But as I said at the start of this post, I’m pretty skint!

So, that’s my wish list for September, and boy what a wish list it is… What are you eyeing up this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, take care.

August Favourites 2015

Oh hello September, when did you get here? I’ve been so busy this August bank holiday that this months favourites may read a little rushed… But I wanted to make sure I got it done and out there for you lovely readers to well… Read!

I have been loving a hell of a lot this month and I just couldn’t wait to share my favourites with you all.

  • DKNY MYNY EDP.

I’ve owned this perfume for quite a while now and it’s one I often forget that I even own… Which is a surprise considering the size of it! My mom bought this for me and when she buys perfumes, she buys big! For a few weeks in August I wore this constantly, something I haven’t done with a fragrance for quite some time. It’s just such a crisp and fresh scent, perfect for the spring and summer months. I don’t find this is too strong either for an EDP which I’ve also really been liking lately. I’ve worn this for work, before I pop out of the house, and for evenings out with friends. Although it’s a huge bottle, it’s one I find I can just throw in my bag and go out with. Plus, the bottle is super cute with its heart shape.

  • Neal & Wolf Ritual Shampoo.

I FINALLY have this shampoo and let me tell you, I don’t regret it at all. Since using this shampoo my hair has felt and looking soft, smooth, and healthy. Not that it never before mind, but I just feel like it’s more silky smooth to the touch than it was before. My hair also smells so amazing after using this and it’s something I really do look forward to using when I’m due to wash my hair. My hair has felt in a lot better condition since using this stuff, and it especially feels easier to brush and blow dry, which is good considering how long and thick my hair is. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this in the future!

  • Lush Love And Light Hand Cream.

I only recently purchased the full size of this product, but I’ve had the sample since the start of August and boy has it lasted me, HEY it still is! This is a gorgeous hand cream which feels light when applied and not heavy, or sticky like some hand creams. My hands have been pretty dry lately due to the weather constantly changing and my hands being washed out from work, as well as at home. However this hand cream when used throughout the day has made sure to keep my hands lovely and soft, as well as smelling beautiful. This isn’t cheap at nearly Β£8 a tub, but it’s going to last me ages! I’ll be reviewing it very soon, so look out for that.

  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry.

This was a product I picked up on a whim to cheer myself up after a crap day. I picked this up, as well as one of the Revlon Matte Lipsticks in Shameless. Out of the two however, I’ve found I’ve been using this one the most. Black Cherry is one of those lipsticks you either love, or hate. Or even get on with, or you don’t. It’s a very gothic looking shade and it’s one that I adore! I love my dark raspberry and red shades and now we’re approaching autumn and winter again, this will probably be worn to death! It’s a gorgeous vampy red shade that has a little gloss to it. I wear it over a dark lip liner to ensure it lasts all day. I’ll be rocking this all autumn and winter me thinks!

  • Babyliss True Glow Sonic Cleansing Face Brush.

This counts as a beauty product and I swear to God, my skin hasn’t look so good since before I hit puberty. I hated this brush when I first got it but since then I have fallen head over heels for it, and use it everyday. You can also use this for the body, but I really don’t get along with it that way. This has an awesome timer mode built in so it beeps to tell you when to focus on another part of your face. It runs for a 60 seconds, therefore giving you 10 seconds to work on six parts of the face. Left and right hand side of the forehead and cheeks, the nose, as well as the chin. It’s really great for in the mornings when I want a great scrub before I go out for the day and it really has left my skin with a clear and smooth complexion. I’m hoping to review it in the future, as there are so many face brushes out there now, there’s just too much choice!

So those are my favourites from August! What have you been loving from last month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, take care. I’m so excited for what September holds.
