September Favourites

I can't believe I'm even putting this up now, it's the 11th October! I really haven't been on properly in 2 weeks and I haven't kept on top of any posts from people who I love to read about. I'm such a bad blogger...I promise I'm back now though! I decided it was better late than never with my favourites, and my wish list will be up soon too...

In no particular at order at all, I'm going to start with one which is almost empty. I never use an eye make up remover ever, I just use the same remover for everything, but I got this in my LashStash collection from Sephora last year and finally decided to give it a go. It's Clinique's Take The Day Off and it's so good. It's really soft and gentle and takes my eye make up off so easily, without stinging my eyes which are quite sensitive.

Some MAC favourites of the month. I put up a post on the eyeshadow already (if you can remember back that far) and I've been using this pretty much everyday all through September and into October. It's the MAC Neo Nebula Mineralize Eye Shadow and you can read about it here.
A lipglass I've been loving is the MAC Tinted Lipglass in Cultured which is a lovely Mauve Pink which I've been pairing with my MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup. If you want me to put up some swatches of the lipglass I can do that for you all.

Some more lip products in my favourites this month, they really are my favourite type of make up...I've been loving the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms a lot recently. I read a lot of hype about them at the start of the year was dying to get my hands on some when I was away, and recently I've noticed just how good they are. I bought one in June and used it straight away, and I'm only coming to the end of it now, and I used it everyday, multiple times. They have a slight colour to them and are super moisturising, which I love.
Next is a Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet which is another one of my foreign purchases that I hadn't used it, but I'm glad I kept it until now as it is a perfect Fall/Autumn colour. Again, some swatches for that will be up this week, as I think it's the perfect colour and is quite inexpensive.

This is by no means new, as I have had this for quite a while, and more than one bottle. My favourite scent for the month of September was Black XS by Paco Rabanne. I loved this when I first was bought it, and I still love it now, almost 5 years later. I think it's probably one of my favourite perfumes. I would try to describe the scent, but with perfumes that's far too difficult!

Probably my ultimate favourite for the month is my Leaves candle from Bath & Bodyworks. I absolutely adore these candles and this has been lit in my room almost everyday since I received it. Now, as a lot of you will already know, these aren't available in the UK, so I was absolutely delighted when the very lovely Jessica from The Mod Mermaid kindly sent me some over. She sent me this along with the Pumpkin Caramel Latte 3 wick candle (probably to be included in my October favourites post) and two smaller ones, and also this sleeve as a surprise and an EOS lipbalm. How amazing is she!? You should definitely head over and check her blog out!

Little food favourite of the month, Ritz Crackers. I used to eat these all the time when I was younger and forgot a little how much I loved them. So good!

So, I'm very sorry that this took so long to come up, but it's here! I'm also very sorry that I haven't posted at all this month, and I should be resuming to full working order from now!
