September 2017 Beauty Favourites

I know you shouldn't wish time away but I am so happy to see the end of September as my favourite time of year begins tomorrow! I love Halloween and Christmas, especially with all of the new beauty launches coming out soon. This month I have had quite a few good makeup days thanks to these products.

Nails Inc Christmas Gift Sets 2017 (+ Boots Star Gift)

I just can't get enough of Christmas gifting this year and there is so much more to come! Nails Inc has some gorgeous sets available for this year and I definitely want to get my hands on one or two of them. I have also included this weeks star gift at boots - who doesn't love a bargain! Nails Inc Christmas Gift Sets 2017

Collection Lip Colour SPF 15 Lipsticks Review (+ Swatches)

I am obsessed with lip products, I have enough to last a lifetime but I can't stop myself from trying out more! Collection is one of my favourite brands on the high street and these lipsticks sounded so impressive that I had to give them a try. Collection is so affordable and you can't really go wrong with their products, I am obsessed with their eyeliners!

Autumn Bath & Body Works Haul with MyMallBox

I am fully addicted to Bath and Body Works products so when MyMallBox offered to let me trial their service, I jumped at the chance! The process couldn't be any easier and I am obsessed with my new candles. If you want to try out My Mall Box for yourself, there is a link at the bottom of this post to get $5 credit!

Skinnydip & Missguided Christmas Gift Sets 2017

I love that Skinnydip and Missguided have bought out Christmas collections this year at Boots. I'm pretty sure that Missguided had a collection this year but it seems bigger and better than ever! The packaging from both brands looks stunning this year and I can't wait to head into store and see it all for myself.

September 2017 Degustabox

I love the day when my Degustabox gets delivered, I think I get just as excited about food deliveries as I do with makeup! Degustabox is my favourite food subscription service as I love that it surprises me every month. I am a pretty fussy eater so I love that this helps me try new things, I always find something new that I like in every box!

Hype Christmas Gift Sets 2017

Hype is a brand I hadn't really paid too much attention too but my Sister is obsessed! She owns quite a few clothing items from them and you should have seen her face when she saw this collection, I know what to get her now! I have got to admit, I am a bit in love with this range and it's perfect to add a little Summer fun to those cold winter months. As always, this range is on the 3 for 2 offer at Boots!Hype Christmas Gift Sets 2017

Superdrug Avocado & Manuka Honey Hair Care

I may not like to eat Avocados but my hair really likes them! Superdrug is one of my favourite places to shop, especially with free delivery online if you are a Health & Beautycard Member and these products really caught my attention. My hair has been quite dry recently so I had been wanting to switch up my haircare and find something new that would help keep my hair soft and hydrated.

Iconic London Illuminator Review

I am a highlighter addict! I just can't get enough of them but my collection was seriously lacking liquid highlighters. Ever since Tati (Glam Life Guru on YouTube) talked about these on her channel I knew I had to get my hands on one at some point! If you like an intense highlight, I think you will really love this product!

Soap and Glory Christmas Gift Sets 2017 (+ Advent Calendar)

It isn't Christmas in my house without a Soap and Glory gift set or two! This year I think they have topped their past collections and are back with bigger and better gifting. I love that they have also bought out an Advent Calendar too, this is one that I have been seriously excited about. There is definitely a gift set for every budget this year and they are on 3 or 2 at Boots!

Home Fragrance with Monsoon

As the nights get colder and the heating comes on, there is nothing quite as cosy as lighting a candle and making your home smell incredible! I am all about candles in the Autumn/Winter but I had never tried any from Monsoon. This scent isn't something I would usually be attracted to but I have been obsessed with it!

New Favourite Blank Canvas Brushes

I'm always on the hunt for new makeup brushes, mainly so I don't have to wash them so often but my stash was actually lacking a bit! I have been in need of some new face and eye brushes, a few of mine have either broken or my little sister has stolen them so this bundle of goodies from Blank Canvas couldn't have arrived at a better time! I have tried a few of their products in the past and been a huge fan and I haven't been disappointed.

New Beauty Launches Part 2 (September 2017)

I did a post just like this at the beginning of the month and it was so popular so I thought I would do a part two as there are so many new beauty products out at the moment! I have included a few Christmas gifting options too as they are starting to hit the shelves and I am already obsessed with the look of them, I can't wait to get a few.

Real Techniques Christmas Gift Sets 2017

I have got to admit, the gift sets from Real Techniques this year look incredible, I definitely want to pick up a few of these for myself and for gifts! Real Techniques brushes are great quality on a budget and I always recommend them so why not treat yourself!

Berry Lip Favourites

I am so happy that Autumn is finally here because I can start wearing all of my favourite lip products again! I love anything berry toned, I find that they really suit my paler complexion well and I do love a bold lip. I have worn one of these all Summer I must admit as it isn't too intense but I have got all my old loves out and new purchases and I am ready for bold berry lips.Berry Lip Favourites

Soap & Glory Brightening Serum Review

I have been on the hunt to find products that will improve my skin, it has been quite dull since I cleared up my acne so I wanted to try something that would boost and brighten my skin. I swear by Soap and Glory products, I don't think there is a product I don't like! This is a newer launch from the brand and I am so impressed with it.

Yankee Candle Cookie Swap Collection Review

Foodie scented candles are my absolute favourite, I just can't get enough of them! While Bath and Body Works' Hot Cocoa and Cream is one of my favourites at the moment, the Yankee Candle Cookie Swap collection comes in at a close second. I have been waiting for these to launch in the UK after I saw them last year in the States, I wish we got all the scents at the same time as in America as I am too impatient!

NYX Christmas Gift Sets 2017

The Christmas gift sets are finally starting to appear online and I am getting far too excited! NYX isn't a brand that I would think would have Christmas gift sets for some reason but they have some lovely ones on offer this year! I also found some new palettes so I had to include those as well. NYX Christmas Gift Sets 2017

Kind Natured Top Picks

As the nights get colder and darker quicker, I am all about having a pamper and a nice hot bath. These three products have been my go-to favourites, I have used Kind Natured products in the past and have been a huge fan so I couldn't wait to try out a few more. These products are pretty affordable too and you can find them at Boots!

Autumn Makeup Bag Update

I love makeup every month of the year but as soon as Autumn/Winter rolls around, I get so much more excited! Not only does it mean the start of Christmas gifting, I think you know by now how obsessed I am with Christmas, but it also means I can bring out all of my vampy lip products and nail polishes as well as warmer toned palettes and blushes. If I could get away with deep berry lips and plum blushes all year round I would!

Essence Matte vs Shine Lip Glosses

I am one of the biggest fans of Essence products, I can never believe the quality for the price as they are incredibly affordable. I am obsessed with lip products but when it comes to matte lips, I have never been a huge fan. I hated the way they felt on the lips so I never got on board...until I tried the Matt Matt Matt Lip Glosses from Essence! Even though I am not a bit of a matte lip fan, I could never give up my glosses.

GOSH Makeup Must Haves

I love shopping at Superdrug, they stock some of my favourite brands but one brand I haven't tried much from is GOSH. For some reason, I had overlooked them whenever I was in stores and I wish I hadn't as I have been so impressed with these products since I got my hands on them. If you are on a budget and looking for some new beauty to try, you need to check out GOSH.

Bilou Creamy Shower Foams Review

I am a bit of a shower gel snob, I only like a few brands but as soon as I saw these online I knew I wanted to give them a try because who doesn't want to smell like a tasty donut?! Bilou was created by Bibi (BibisBeautyPalace on YouTube) who has 4.5 million subscribers and she has created one incredible range of products!

Roots Hair Care

I have been on a huge hair care kick recently as my hair had never been drier since I got back from Spain a few weeks ago. It honestly felt like straw and my roots can be a little sensitive, especially after the amount of time I had spent in the sun which is where Roots Hair Care comes in!

Beauty Advent Calendars 2017

If you know me, you will know how much I love Christmas so when Christmas and beauty combine, I basically explode in excitement. I have always loved the beauty advent calendars, I had the Tanya Burr one last year and I definitely want to get another one this year. I can't believe how many there are this year, there is one for every price range too!

Testing Out Korean Skincare

I have been wanting to try Korean skin care for the longest time after hearing such good things about it. Everybody raves about their skincare and I have been really impressed! One thing I was really surprised by was that this brand, is vegan and cruelty-free - I just wasn't expecting that to be honest but it makes me very happy!

My Experience at World Duty Free (+ What to Buy)

I love World Duty Free and I actually got to go through one of the stores lately and I was a huge fan and I can't wait to travel again soon so I can go back! If you are travelling through a number of the UK airports soon, you have to pay a visit to them as it was one of my favourite recent shopping experiences.

Blog Prop Ideas Under £10

I am always on the look out for new blog props and eBay is one of the places I always turn too. I love to find affordable blog props as I like to switch them up every couple of months, these are some of my favourites I have found lately as well as one thing from etsy I can't get enough of!

Best & Worst Spot Treatments

I feel like I have tried every spot and acne treatment on the market over the years and I have finally found my holy grail. But on the way to finding one heck of an amazing product...I found a few that just don't work. If you have acne prone skin or are just in need of a few spot treatment, I am going to share the best and the worst.

NYX Total Control Drop Foundation Review


I haven't tried any NYX products in what feels like years and I was on the hunt for a new foundation and this one sounded perfect. I hadn't heard too much about it before I ordered it and I have no idea why as it is incredible stuff! This has quickly become a favourite of mine and is a great full coverage high street alternative. Most of the foundations I have are £30+ so I can't believe this is better and half the price.

Favourite Warm Eyeshadow Palettes

I live for warm tone eyeshadow palettes, they are my obsession. I think pretty much all of my eyeshadows palettes are warm toned and I just can't get enough of them. These are my four most used palettes at the moment and while some might say they are similar, I couldn't be without them. I use at least one or two of them most days and they are definitely worth investing in.

Three New Highlighters I'm Obsessed With

I am addicted to highlighters and I just can't stop buying more! If you saw my Highlighter Collection post (link to that here), you will know I already have far too many! But while I was in Sephora, two of these accidentally fell in my basket and the other my best friend got for me, you can never have enough highlighter in your life right?!

Soap & Glory The Fab Pore 3-in-1 Oil Control Serum Review

My skin has been quite oily lately and my normal favourite primers and skin care must haves just weren't cutting it. I am forever raving about Soap and Glory products (I honestly can't get enough of them) and this is something that sounded perfect for me! If you have oily skin, I think you will really love this stuff.

Zoella Lifestyle Christmas Range 2017

I was so excited by the Zoella Beauty Christmas Range (full details of that here) but I am even more impressed by her lifestyle Christmas range! I have got to hand it to Zoe and her team as I have been a massive improvement to her products and packaging this year, I feel like they are better suited towards a slightly older audience. I can't wait to buy a couple of things and put a few on my Christmas list!

New Beauty Launches (September 2017)

There have been so many new launches lately I can tell I am going to be broke soon! These are some of my favourite launches for all budgets from £3 to £50+. I have some super affordable products that are exciting me too much and I just can't wait to order them. Let me know what your favourite new launch is, I love finding out about new products coming out.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer Review

When I was sorting out my makeup a little while ago, I realised I didn't have that many bronzers to try out so I knew I wanted to pick up a new one while I was in Sephora. I was definitely feeling spendy on that trip, you can see my full haul here. I had heard such good things about this and Too Faced is my favourite brand so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

Yankee Candle Fall in Love Collection Review

With the cooler months slowly approaching, I am bringing back my candle reviews! I love doing these but I didn't really burn many during the hot weather but I have been obsessed once again. This is a brand new collection from Yankee Candle and I honestly didn't think I was going to be as big of a fan as I am!

August 2017 Degustabox

I have got to admit, this is such a good box this month! I have been loving my Degustaboxes again lately and I just can't get enough, this is the first box in a while where I have actually liked every single thing and I intend to repurchase soon.

Books I Read Last Month #3 (+ What I Watched)

I'm gutted I didn't get to read as many books as I wanted to this month, I have been so busy! But with it finally being September, I feel that it's 'okay' to start reading Christmas books...I have been feeling a bit festive I must admit! I have read what I think is my favourite read so far this year this month and I can't wait to share. I have decided to also start including my favourite movies and TV shows of the month as I am always watching something!
