September Favourites 2014

It only seems like last week i was doing a August favourites. I can not believe we are going into October in a couple of days! Where is this year going?!

I don't have many favourites this month. The ones i do have though i really love.

Surprisingly i found this in my local Poundland! I wasn't really sure what to make of it when i first picked it up, as i hadn't tried liquid eyeshadow since i was in my teens and photographs can tell you, it was not a good look. Since this wasn't blue or pink, like my pervious teen colour selections, i decided to give it a whirl. I mean, for £1 i couldn't really go wrong.

It has a long doe-foot applicator, which i am not a total fan of, but its bearable! I generally put a bit on my eyelid and then blend it in with either a brush or my fingers.

The staying power is amazing. The product will last all day on my eyelids without budging. The product is also really pigmented and gives on such a beautiful colour.

This what what the product looks like straight off the doe-foot applicator.

This is what the product looks like once it has been blended in.

I got a mini sample (see in pictures below) of Benefit's primer 'Stay Don't Stray' in an edition of Birchbox. I hadn't really used it until my much faithful primer potion by Urban Decay ran out. Since then i have been using this and loving it!

It has a small doe-foot applicator, which i like because it means you can get into the corner of the eyes. 

I have the shade that is light/medium and provides a skin tone shade. I like the idea of this because it gives your eyeshadow a nice base colour before applying your chosen eye products.

My eyeshadow has lasted really well with this primer. It generally lasts from when i wake up in the morning until i go to take my makeup off at night time. I don't know if i am completely converted away from the primer potion, but at this point in time, i am really loving it.

 If i stay

I have started reading 'If i stay' on my kindle. I have not yet finished the book, but so far i am really loving it. It is a easy read, but also quite emotional. As i haven't read the whole story yet, i can't really give my own opinion of what the book is about. So i am going to let Amazon tell it for me.

I am 70% through the book (Kindle's do a percentage through the book rather than page numbers), and i have a few theories of how its going to end but to me, there is no obvious route. Once i have finished the book, more than likely see how the movie compares.

What have you been loving for the month of September?

  2. Gosh your eyeshadow is gorgeous! The molten gold is so dazzlingly pretty! <3

    Hope you enjoy the ending of If I Stay, I definitely agree that it's such an emotional story; I haven't read the book but I saw it at the cinema and was really choked throughout the whole film! Very unlike me, I have a heart of stone when it comes to films usually ;)
