September Favourites

 
September was a pretty good month for me, and despite the load of assignments due in October I think it is going to be a pretty great month as well. I’ve still not unpacked all of my beauty loot (busting to get my Ikea Alex for that!) so my picks for this month were from quite a small selection.
Original Source Chocolate and Mint Shower Gel
Had hunted this for months to no avail and ended up spotting it on the shelf at Coles during our weekly grocery run. This is too good; I think Original Source is crazy for making this limited edition!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser
I succumbed to the rave reviews of this during the half off sale at Chemist Warehouse, and I now get what the hype is about! Blends like a dream, I enjoy the (unsanitary but cushy!) sponge applicator and the colour is a good match for me (lightest shade, natch)
Clarins Instant Concealer*
Yup, two concealer favourites for me this month. I’m outrageous! Love how much you get in this adorable tube, and again it blends well and brightens up my under eye area nicely. Thanks Clarins!

 
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo
A constant favourite, my beloved skin saviour. Buy it, and rid yourself of crappy skin for good.
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
Mister Bovary and I have been slathering this on weekly to rid ourselves of flaky patches and to generally give our mugs a good juice boost. Highly recommend this, well worth the $34 in my opinion.
Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Sweetheart
The colour isn’t as exciting as I’d like it to be (it came with the Signature Colour Essentials) but the formula of these is top notch and I’m looking at adding a creamy pale pink to my stash for the upcoming warm months. They really do give a glace-gloss to the lips which I adore.
Smashbox Sheer Colour Gloss in Overexposed*
Popped this back into my daily makeup bag and I don’t know why I ever took it out. I am a big fan of the Smashbox glosses I’ve tried (this one, and the raspberry Tease shade) and think they are definitely underrated. Original post is here.

  1. I picked up the same Maybelline concealer in the sale too and am loving it but I'm dying to try the Clarins one too. Also need to try some Origins products, it's a brand I haven't tried before and don't know much about. Kayte xx

    1. @Kayte The Clarins one has so much in the tube, I love the packaging a lot! I have only tried a few Origins products but have loved them all, which is a pretty good sign :) Kit Cosmetics are really lovely and happy to give out Origins samples too, so it is worth looking into :)

  2. I am in love with the formula of Laura Mercier glosses. They're also priced well. I haven't actually tried smashbox glosses before, overexposed looks like a gorgeous colour.

    1. How nice are they?! Such a glass-like finish, too pretty. I was kinda happy with the price point too, was just expecting them to be around Dior prices >< I fell in love with Smashbox Tease at a blog event years ago and ended up buying a mini size of it, the formula is really nice and comfortable on the lips :)

  3. I bought the overnight mask last week! I love it so far! I need to keep an eye out for the body wash, I love choc mint!

    1. Kat I'm so happy you bought the overnight mask, it is heaven in a tube for real! You definitely need to keep an eye out for the O.S gel, it smells edible and they are only $4 on sale at the moment!

  4. Ooooh, must try that Clarins. I'm not a big concealer user but do want a nice one for the times I feel it's necessary to bust them out.

    1. I agree Liz, I'm not huge on concealer (despite what it looks like in this post...) but I like using these under eye ones for redness around my face - I know you aren't technically supposed to, but if it works, why not!

  5. Seems like a bunch of lovely products :)
    I have loved a few things this past month, for example I have discovered that no mascara can beat my love towards the Maybelline Colossal Volum´ Express mascara.
    I also have LOVED Rimmels lipstick in Airy Fairy among other things :)
