September's Most Loved

September Favourite Nars Tinted Moisturiser

I haven't done a favourites in a long time! September has been a huge month of discovery and I have found so many new products to fall in love with, so I thought why not share some of my favourites in one place.

It was hard to narrow down, but I have cut my favourites list down to a top five. Let's get into it!!

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser //

I have to give credit to Sam and Ash for practically forcing me to buy this bad boy. Thank you ladies, I am so glad you made me spend more money, I have no regret!

September has been a month of wearing less make up for me. I have been seriously cutting back on make up, especially the coverage of my foundation. This may have been due to my skin issues. My skin didn't have a happy time in September. So I was after something that was light and hydrating (i.e a tinted moisturiser), but still had a decent coverage. This is where Nars came in. I picked this up during September and haven't looked back since. It is a really lightweight, hydrating tinted moisturiser that still has amazing coverage. It doesn't leave you looking shiny or oily, neither does it leave you looking flat or matte. Just gives you an extremely radiant glow and your skin is left looking natural and gorgeous. I can put into words how nice this tinted moisturiser is, but I would highly recommend it to anyone. The only downfall is the colour range, so maybe get a few samples of shades in store before committing to one.

September Favourite Fenty Beauty Gloss Boss

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer // 

This was a fairly new addition to my make up collection in September. I grabbed this on my trip to Sydney and I haven't looked back since. When the Fenty Beauty range came out, I can't say that I was hugely excited, but after seeing a few people wearing this lip gloss I decided I needed it. I am loving it!! It is hydrating, smells AMAZING and looks incredible on your lips. I don't know how she did it, but this is like the perfect nude and every day shade. I am not usually a gloss fan, but I have to say that this is definitely a huge winner for me this month!!

September Favourite Natura Siberica Oblepikha Hand Cream

Natura Siberica Oblepikha Hand Cream* //  

As you may recall from an earlier post this month, I am very honoured to have joined the Natura Siberica NS Crew during September. This means that you get the benefits - by using the code 'THELIFEOFLAURA' you can get 15% off your order!! 

Anyway, my favourite hand cream this month was from Natura Siberica, the Oblepikha Hand Cream to be precise! I have been a big fan of the Oblepikha Foot Cream for an incredibly long time, so I was excited to finally have the hand cream to match. It is so hydrating and nourishing and has been a saviour for my extremely dry hands lately. Plus it's so affordable if you're after a new hand cream (especially if you get my 15% discount)! The smell was one that took a while to grow on me, but after falling in love with the foot cream, the scent is now a favourite of mine. Anyway, my point is - this hand cream is amazing and I am probably going to need to restock soon after the amount I have used it this month.

September Favourite Nest Black Tulip

Nest Fragrances Black Tulip //

It is safe to say that I have wanted a Nest Fragrance ever since I first heard of them being released in Sephora. I have had a few mini's which I have been in love with (Citrine and Midnight Fleur), but to celebrate finishing uni, I finally bought a full size! 

If you haven't heard of Nest Fragrances before, just appreciate how damn beautiful the packaging is. They are the most beautiful and luxurious bottles, which is what caught my attention initially. I picked up the Black Tulip scent in store which has notes of Black Amber Plum, Pink Pepper, Japanese Violet, Indonesian Jasmine and Patchouli. It is a really light, mature floral scent which I am just obsessed with. It immediately reminded me of spring, which is part of the reason I had to have it! I already am planning my next Nest Fragrance purchase now!

Audrey Daybook //

Audrey Daybook was a magazine that came out during September which immediately caught my eye. I am usually not a big magazine reader, but this magazine was very different. it is a bi-monthly magazine with articles that is encouraged to provoke thoughts that will intrigue and inspire. What really excited me was that it is also filled with puzzles and colouring pages. I have always loved doing crosswords and other puzzles, but I have always felt a little dorky buying puzzle magazines from the newsagent. Audrey Daybook allows me to have a luxurious magazine that still the challenge of puzzles in it. I love it and now want to subscribe so I never miss an issue (I mean I have almost finished all the puzzles in my current edition...)
