September Beauty Obsessions ♡ ft. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
Ahh what a week! I’m on mid-semester break at the moment but it feels like anything but a holiday. Probably because I’ve been desperately trying to catch up all my lectures I’ve foolishly skipped over the last few weeks. I also had my annual Vet Ball on the weekend which was so much fun, although my poor feet took a bashing dancing around in heels until 4 in the morning.
Today I’m sharing with you my favourite beauty products of the month, which I’m super excited to share with you guys because I think I am in love with all of these products more than any other products in my previous monthly favourite posts.
1. Hourglass Ambient Light Palette
I received this amazing palette from my sister for my 21st birthday last month, and have been using it everyday since, especially the middle colour, incandescent light. I use it as a highlighter on top of my cheek bones and while they don’t give a dramatic highlight, they do give a subtle glow making our skin appear brighter and healthier. And while the difference is subtle it is definitely noticeable. While the price is expensive, I feel the quality does not disappoint. The powder is fine and minimises appearance of pores, making it an everyday go-to for me.
2. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in Blackest Black
I’ve used this eyeliner a few times now and I am in love with it. It drys a matte black which is hard to find in some cheaper drug store eyeliners and I love the felt tip. Although it dries out fairly quickly so be sure not to leave the lid off and give the eyeliner a good shake before use!
3. Maybelline Lash Sensational
Okay so I’m probably a little late to the game with this one, but I think this is my new favourite drug store mascara! I have loved The Colossal by Maybelline for some time now, so decided to give this one a go when I read heaps of good reviews and I love it! It makes my eyelashes super long and separates them well giving a fan effect. I would say it is different to The Colossal, maybe a little less volumising but I love how long my lashes look after using this mascara. Obsessed.
4. Coco by Chanel Eau de Toilette
Another 21st birthday present! This spray is so different to any of the other perfumes I own. I tend to go for sweet and floral scents but Coco is perfect for night time with its spicy and sensual fragrance.
5. Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Peony
I love the colour of this lipstick, perfect for everyday and matches almost any outfit. The formula is very pigmented and long lasting too! I’ve got quite alot of use out of this product in the last month.
6. MAC Matte Lipstick in Taupe
This lipstick is probably my favourite beauty product of the month. I only bought it two weeks ago but have worn it almost everyday since (when I’m not wearing my Too Faced Liquid Lipstick). I LOVE this colour! I went to the MAC counter to try out Velvet Teddy, a colour that almost every beauty blogger talks about, but the girl at the counter suggested to me this colour and I am so glad she did! It’s similar to Velvet Teddy only darker, slightly more brown and far more striking. I had so many compliments the first day I wore this lipstick and felt as though my make up looked more mature than if I had worn my usual pink lip products.
7. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette
And last but not least this amazing eyeshadow palette! I have wanted this palette for so long, so when I received a gift voucher for Mecca Maxima for my 21st I knew exactly what I wanted. And I was not disappointed! I love all the colours on this palette! I haven’t had the chance to play around with them all on my eyelid yet, but the ones that I have I absolutely love. This palette has a good selection of matte, shimmer and glitter shadows so you could do a complete make up look with this palette, and for that reason alone I would higly recommend this palette. The colours also blend like a dream and the whole thing smells like chocolate. You can’t go wrong!
Hope you all enjoyed this post! What beauty products have you been loving this month? I’d love to hear from you guys!
And I have heaps of clothes to shoot, so look out for more posts coming soon!
