Monthly Favourites: September

Definitely a little late and overdue but I haven't done a monthly favourites in forever and thought it was finally time I did. I find monthly favourites so difficult to do because I can go two months using the same products time and time again, however luckily September was a month for new makeup in my collection!

The only foundation I've been wearing since I picked it up at the beginning of this month is the No7 Lift and Luminate Foundation. I won't harp on too much about it as I've literally talked about it non-stop over the past month, but I can't stop wearing this! Although I'm definitely going to need to get shade matched again when my tan basically completely fades, I've been obsessed with the coverage this provides (medium) and also the finish. This foundation is amazing for us drier skin girls because it is luminous without being oily and sits into the skin so well and I don't see any patchiness or separation on my face throughout the day - a definite winner!

Another No7 product is the No7 Shimmer Palette Rose I have one too many highlighters and blushers etc but this has become a blush topper I've used continuously this month. I've been pairing it a lot with my other favourite, the  Milani Powder Blush 'Romantic Rose'* as this is a matte blush and if I'm looking for a little bit more of a glow, but not a highlighter, I'll top up the Milani blush with the No7 product lightly.

We've also finally edged our way into Autumn which means I've been bringing out more of the darker lips. The ever so beautiful Charlotte Tilbury 'Bond Girl' has been on my lips pretty much every time I've been wearing stripes or mom jeans so basically everyday and I forgot how smooth and comfortable her lipsticks are. Bond Girl is such a pretty berry red, and almost reminds me of an old classic Hollywood deep red - it looks so sophisticated and is just a bit of a different take on berries and reds.

Let me know in the comments below one product you've been loving this month!
