Five Things I Love – September 2017


I thought I’d better publish my September love list before it gets a bit too far into October for it to count.  It’s been really easy to work out my favourites for September as there were some very clear winners – these are the things I’ve been reaching for most of all, with some total finds in both skincare and make-up.


Starting with the two skincare items, both of which I have reviewed already.  The Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Face Mask (review here) is just so perfect if you’re struggling to find the motivation to perform a skincare routine, and/or you’re feeling exceptionally lazy, as this is a product that works as both a treatment and hydrator – just cleanse, then apply this and wake to perfectly plump, lightly exfoliated skin.  It’s £90 here – link. The Avon Anew Clinical Even Texture & Tone Advanced Resurfacing Peel (review here) may not have the catchiest of names, but it’s one of my absolute finds for 2017 as these exfoliating pads really do leave skin feeling like it’s had a brilliantly effective peel treatment.  If you love your acids, you need a pack of these, which are £15 here – link.


My most reached for foundation for quite a while now has been the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation (review here) as it really does meet all the main criteria for my foundation needs; it provides a buildable coverage in a flattering finish and formula with a shade that matches my skin perfectly – this will need replacing soon which I’ll definitely be using my Boots Advantage Card points for. It’s £31.50 here – link. I really struggle to find good matches for my brow hair as I like a really ashy finish, which is actually very hard to find.  I had heard great things about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and I noticed they had two ashy sounding colours, Taupe and Medium Brown.  I went for Medium Brown which I’m really pleased with as it’s a perfect match in a really easy, blendable formula that I’m reaching for daily.  It’s also very well priced at £15.50 here – link. Maybelline have a lot of eyeliners in their collection, it’s quite impressive for a high street brand, so I picked up the Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner to see how it performs.  This is probably one of the very best eyeliners I have ever tried; it’s a great choice if you’re not great at drawing a steady, slender line as it’s just so easy to use.  I am so, so impressed with this and would recommend it to anyone who struggles with liner.  The fact that it’s just £5.99 makes it even more amazing.  You can find it here – link.
