This Months Favourites

fave-beauty-items

By Finding the Grey

This Months favourites have seemingly become a mish mash of winter and spring items. Aside from the weather, I’ve included products used in both August and October, better late than never though!

Kmart products never disappoint and this almond and coconut body and hair oil is no exception. This now daily essential was a result of one of those Kmart shops where you go in for one thing and come out with twelve other items you don’t really need but couldn’t resist – let’s be honest, this happens everytime! – only $3, this didn’t exactly break the bank either! This fragrant body spray is the perfect summer scent with sweet balmy coconut and almond; and the hydrated dewy look it gives my skin is so glowy and radiant and really compliments a good tan!

I think my first words were ‘I’m obsessed!’ The formula of NYX’s lingerie liquid lipstick in the shade ‘babydoll’ is one of the most lightweight I have ever tried! It’s the softness of the silk of a ballerina slipper. I’m a nude or pink lip kind of girl and this liquid lipstick is the perfect blend of both. It dries almost instantly to a matte consistency that creates the perfect pout, it does feel too dry though and can leave your lips feeling dehydrated and sticky so I tend to either re-apply too much or put a gloss over the top, which feels better but takes away from the pouted matte look.

Before discovering the Australis Browzit eyebrow perfecting kit, I had always used a pencil and spoolie brush to shape and fill my brows. I still reguarly consider getting my eyebrows feathered/tattooed and products like Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade are on my ‘to buy’ list, but for a more affordable option that still does wonders, the Australis kit is amazing! It comes in a neat little mirrored palette with a double ended brush and tweezers, a wax and then a blonde and brunette powder option. You know it’s a favourite when you hit pan in record time! The wax is almost smudge proof and works so well that I’ve been asked by makeup artists what I use because the product won’t budge! Definitely will be a repurchased item!

The last beauty product of my september favourites is the Elf liquid concealer in the shade ‘fair’. It’s consistency, coverage and colour match are amazing. I would even go so far as to say I’d rank it as a dupe of Nars creamy concealer. The only downside is that there isn’t a lot of product and no bigger sizes.

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with coffee. I love the taste but my anxiety skyrockets. To begin with I simply cut down to one coffee a day and wouldn’t have anything caffeinated too close to bed time, but eventually it got worse and even half a cup would send my heart racing and my hands jittering. Of course decaf was an option but didn’t seem very exciting. My mum has been a lover of chai tea/lattes for a while and I’d always turned my nose up at it until recently I decided to give it a go again, well the rest is history. I don’t know what changed but I’m addicted! Regular cafe ones still hit the spot, but I have been particularly loving these instant sachet ones from Nescafe with ginger in them too. The smell of it hits you before you’ve even taken a sip and I swear it’s a natural anxiety remedy; oh and don’t even get me started on banana chai lattes!!

Oh an quietly on the side, I’ve been loving watching Life of Kylie and The Bachelorette, they’re the best guilty pleasures! I’m sure I’m not the only one!
