September Favourites

September Favourites

This month, we said goodbye to the Summer and hello to Autumn, or Fall for my American readers. Sidenote - does anyone else much prefer the word Fall?! I am always happy to say goodbye to the Summer months. I love the longer days and the nice weather, but I much prefer Autumn fashion. Layers are my thing. Bring on the scarves, gloves, hot chocolates and the cosy nights in. 

No7 Stay Perfect Foundation
For work, I don't like to wear my more expensive, full coverage foundations. So, this month, I purchased this No 7 foundation to be my weekday foundation. Yes, I know how extra that sounds. But, I don't want to be putting £36 foundation on my face just to go to work. I often find a lot of cheaper brands of foundation can be really drying on my skin and just look awful by the end of the day. This one isn't the same. At £15 it isn't the cheapest foundation on the market, but because of this, it is really good quality and isn't drying at all. This foundation is really long lasting is pretty good coverage too.

L'Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara
This mascara has been all over Instagram and I also bought into the hype around this product. This is a bold statement, but it's probably the best mascara I have ever used. Never before have I used a mascara that has left my lashes looking so full and volumised. All those before and after pictures you see on social media with this product are true. Totally love it!

Batiste Stylist Texturising Spray
This month has been the introduction of Kate with short hair. You might have already seen on Instagram, but earlier this month I went for the chop and donated about 10 inches of hair to the Little Princess Trust. Since then, I have been getting used to styling my shorter hair. I think I might do a post all about this. This product, in particular, has been a complete saviour. It's very much like the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray, only a fraction of the price. I have been spraying this into the ends and roots of my hair to give more texture to my curls and volume to the roots.

No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask
I don't know if it's been the change in weather, but my skin has been freaking out this month. It's been really dry and this has made applying makeup a real issue. One of my friends from work told me about this, she loved it so I thought I would try it too. I managed to get a 3 for 2 offer on No 7 at Boots - so that was a winner. I have really loved this mask. You have two options, either leaving the mask on for 2 mins, or 10 mins. Every time I have left it on for the full 10 minutes, and probably longer. After using, this makes my skin feel so soft and not tight/dry.


Kiehl's Butterstick Lip Treatment - Naturally Nude
If you're a regular reader of my blog, there will be no surprise to you that there is a Kiehl's product in my favourites. I have to admit, this was a total impulse buy when I was at the till, but I am so glad that I picked one up. I have pretty much been wearing this every day in September....and August. This Butterstick is really nourishing, whilst giving a really lovely, subtle colour to the lips. It's a really handy, throw in your bag product that pretty much suits any makeup look.

What have been some of your favourites this month? I'd love for you to share them with me in the comments, or on Instagram and Twitter.
Love, Kate xx

    1. Really, that’s impressive. Proves you don’t always need to spend loads. I don’t think I’ve heard a bad word about the mascara

  3. Great post. Really want to try the Batiste Stylist Texturising Spray, especially now that you've said it compares to Oribe at a fraction of the price! Putting it on my list!

    1. Thank you!! It’s definitely worth a try, I really don’t notice much of a difference between the Batiste and Oribe. Hope you enjoy it!
