September Beauty Favourites (plus…)

Today’s post is all of the products I loved to death in September. I’m trying to mix a few non-beauty items in here too, so there are also some lifestyle and some fashion items.

An Introduction To Burt’s Bees For Their 30th ‘Beeday’

An Introduction To Burt’s Bees

September marked 30 years since Burt’s Bees began selling their amazing products and I have somehow managed to live that whole time without trying any. I’m not really sure why as I love that all of their products are so natural. It all started with a lip balm and has now grown into a full range with gorgeous products.

That thing you can see in the distance is a bandwagon and this is me chasing it to jump right on! Make Up Revolution appeared out of nowhere a few months ago and the blogging world has gone crazy for it. Affordable make-up with an amazingly wide range of products? GIMME.

These photos were taken months ago (on my birthday in April in fact!) and I forgot to publish them. I’ve not really done any fashion or outfit posts on my blog before as on a day to day basis I wear black jeans and grey/black tops. It doesn’t make for a terribly interesting read!

OPI Make Him Mine Review

OPI Make Him Mine

OPI Make Him Mine

This absolute beauty is from OPI’s holiday collection, the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 range. And I am in love. I thought the red glitter polish (Underneath The Mistletoe) was pretty, but OPI Make Him Mine is a whole other kettle of glitter.

This is my first OPI Liquid Sand polish and I am not disappointed. The polish is surprisingly easy to apply, I was a bit worried as some glitters are thick, lumpy and difficult to apply. Add to that a matte finish and that’s sometimes a recipe for disaster. Not so with this polish. This needed 2 layers and there was no need for a particularly light hand or any placement of glitter. It dries completely matte and doesn’t take too long to dry (although I admit I did get bored waiting, I’ve been so spoilt by the speediness of Seche Vite!)

The colour is super pretty: A rose pink with hot pink, gold and silver glitters of various sizes.

Not only is this polish gorgeous to look at, I am obsessed with the texture. The rough, slightly gritty finish makes it oddly satisfying to run your fingers over.

I have so many nail varnishes in every colour under the sun, but it’s new and unusual things like this that stick in my mind. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this has rocketed into one of my favourite polishes of all time.

Have you tried any of the OPI Liquid Sand polishes?
