September Favourites 2015

This month I've got four favourites to show you that I've fallen in love with.

The first is the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in 'Misty Rock.' What I love about this eye shadow crayon is the colour. It's a gorgeous taupy-purple that just looks lovely on everyone. The purple is really subtle making it great for everyday wear, especially in the autumn months! The actual product applies so easily, it glides on your lid and stays put all day. You do have a few seconds to quickly blend it in before it dries, but really only a few seconds!!
My next favourite goes hand in hand with my Ombre Blackstar. Its the L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow in 'Cafe St Germain 201' which looks stunning patted over the Ombre Blackstar. The two together create the most perfect rustic purple nude shade on your lids that stays in place all day with the perfect amount of shimmer.
My third favourite is theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer. I've loved this for so long, it creates the most perfect everyday highlight and even an inner corner highlight for your eyes. Its super pigmented and looks really great paired with a subtle bronzer.
My last favourite is the Duo-Fiber Face Brush from Real Techniques. It comes as part of the 'Nic's Picks' set and is perfect for bronzing all over the face. It adds a really subtle bronze which is great for Autumn.

New Zoeva Buys

After using my other Zoeva brushes for some time now I just had to buy more and even a palette!
The two brushes I got to add to my collection are the 235 'Contour Shader' and the 221 'Luxe Soft Crease'.

235 is the perfect angled crease brush, perfect for blending eye shadow into the outer crease of your eyelid. The bristles are so dense and compact that it blends even the darkest of shades with ease. It's also quit thin so its great for blending eye shadow under your eye or along your lash line as well.
221 is very similar to the Zoeva 227 or MAC 217. It's the perfect all round blending brush. The long compact bristles make it perfect to fit in the crease of your eye making it useful when you want to add depth in the outer crease.

The palette I bought is called the 'Rose Golden Eyeshadow Palette.'
I really wanted to buy the 'Cocoa Blend' palette but sadly BeautyBay was out of stock *cries* so instead I got this one.
Oh my days, its gorgeous.
Its filled with gold and pink shimmery goodness with the added bonus of matte earthy blues and browns which make lovely transition shades. Every shade is packed with pigmentation, there isn't one colour that I won't use! You can either just sweep any of the shades over your lid for an every day look or build them up to create a lovely intense pink gold smokey eye!
I'm so glad I got this palette and it makes me so much more excited for when I eventually get my hands on the 'cocoa blend' one! My favourite shade though is definitely 'Just A Rose' as it's the loveliest rose gold shade.

I bought these lovely things on which I highly recommend if you're looking at getting some zoeva things as well!
