September Beauty Favourites

september beauty favourites
Hi Lovelies 
September was a great month for me because it had some beautiful longer warm days and those days slower got shorter and the evenings started to become cooler and you may be wondering why I love that? Well the reason I love it is because it signifies the start of Autumn. For me Autumn means lovely warm jumpers, spicy candles, halloween and also getting ever nearer to my favourite ever holiday ever and that is Christmas.

I usually struggled picking my monthly beauty favourites but for September it was no problem for me at all because all the products I choose were used way more then once during September and they are still being used by me now. I am so confident with my favourites that I decided to make my first ever Youtube video which I have included below, I hope you all enjoy it.

Beauty Favourites 
The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector 
Autumn and Winter can be a bit harsh to my hands so I love to use this hand cream as it keeps my hands feeling soft all year round. The smell of this is just gorgeous too and a little bit on my hands goes a long way. I put this on usually in the morning and it usually lasts me till the evening till I need to apply it agin.

Urban Decay Foundation 
I absolutely love this foundation ever since I bought it in June, its great as it can give a decent coverage and its very easy to build up without feeling to heavy on the skin. It has a very mild fruity scent and it has a easy to use pump that can be used easily either with a foundation brush or my personal favourite a beauty blender. A little bit goes a long way with this foundation and I am happy to say it lasts all day combined with the urban decay all night makeup setting spray. 

Astral all in one cream 
This cream is a great muli-tasker as it can be used on the face and also as a body cream. This cream is used by my mum and my nana,  they are the ones who actually recommend this cream too me and I am glad they did. This cream is a great budget option and works as well as any other cream I have tried as it smells very nice, it goes onto the skin nicely without feeling sticky.

Makeup Revolution - It eats you up matte
This lipstick has been my all time favourite last month, I don't usually wear the same lipstick more then a couple of times a month but this one I wore most days because I love it so much. This lipstick is a gorgeous bright pink in a matte finish and it lasts so long without needing reapplied! I can't believe it only costs £2.50, its one of the best budget buys I have. 

Makeup Revolution Fortunes Favours the Brave
Another makeup revolution product you say? well I absolutely love the brand because they have come cut so many gorgeous products and the palettes are just wow! This palette was designed with britishbeautyblogger and it has so many lovely neutral shade in it that are perfect for any occasion such as everyday use to a party look.

Urban Decay All Nighter Review

urban decay all nighter review

Urban Decay has been my favourite premium brand since I started wearing makeup, all the products I have tried have worked very well for me and have yet to be disappointed in anything I have bought and fingers crossed it stays that way.

I have heard so many positive things from many bloggers about how amazing the Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray is so I really wanted to see how well it worked for me. For its first challenge it was to keep my my makeup flawless all day of an engagement party which lasted nearly 9 hours on a hot day, keep reading to see if its preferred  a makeup staying miracle for me.

Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray 118ml | £22
Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray
In the item its described as weightless and help keep makeup in place for up to 16 hours without fading or settling in fine lines. It also says its formula is suitable for all skin  types which is a relief for me as I have combination skin. Another thing it says is that it has patented temperature control technology, so with that being said it should last in wind, rain and sun. 

Application and Staying Power
I must admit it took me ages to eventually spray myself in the face with this! haha I kept worrying I was going to spray my eyes and not only that also the cold feel on my face was a little off-putting. Once I sprayed my face with two spritz it wasn't bad at all and I am sure I would actually get used to it through time and actually getting used to it in my makeup routine.

I was actually pleasantly surprised at how well this makeup setting spray worked! As I said at the start of the post, I wore this too an engagement party on a very hot day with lots of makeup spray on and even long after we came home my makeup still looked fresh.

I can't find anything bad to say about this spray as it worked wonders at keeping my makeup looking its best all day. It left no nasty smells and seeing as it had no oil in it, it really was weightless on my skin and I felt like I wasn't wearing it once it dried. It may be a bit on the expensive side but its  a rather large bottle and looks like something that is long lasting. 

Have you tried Urban Decay All Nighter before?
