September Favorites 2014

Hi Everyone :)

I honestly can't believe September is over, the year is just flying by! I love love Autumn and I am so excited for Christmas. So in September loads of things happened, Uni started again, I went for a weekend trip to Iceland, I went shopping loads of times and bought too many beauty products. I clearly have a problem sticking to a plan but I need to get my act together, not only for my blog but also for uni and exercise, that is the goal for October!! Here are the things that I was using a lot (almost everyday) in September.


The first product is the Too faced milk chocolate soleil bronzer. I bought this bronzer to use as an every day light contour. I have been loving it. The bronzer smells amazing, like chocolate. I own the Bourjois chocolate bronzer and that is supposed to smells like chocolate but this one is so much nicer. I might do a comparison post on the Too Faced and the Bourjois bronzers.
The packaging is super nice and sturdy. I love the consistency of the formula and it applies very smooth on the skin. The milk chocolate shade is the lighter shade and its perfect for me.

Next one is the Nars Light reflecting pressed powder, when I bought this powder I did not believe that it would make any difference to my makeup. I thought it would be a very expensive highlighter. I was so wrong. I use this to set my foundation and apply it all over my face. It gives the most natural glow but keeps my face matte at the same time. There is no way to see the powder on the face. It is so finely milled and smooth. First when touching the powder with your fingers it is very hard and its difficult to get a swatch with your fingers. You have to apply it with a brush. I just take a small face brush (with natural hairs works best i think) and swirl it in the pan and then press it into my skin. It is just so beautiful.

I am addicted to the Laura Mercier Caviar eyeshadow sticks - My current obsession with eyeshadow sticks is never ending and it was just matter of time until I fell in love with these. The formula is fantastic and the stay on all day, the Laura Mercier sticks are bulletproof. The shades I have are called Amethyst and Burnished Bronze and they are so beautiful. I will make a point to wear these, take pictures and post them here on my blog or my Instagram (@margretscorner).

On my lips I have been loving the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet, the formula is great. These are liquid lipsticks and apply very velvety and then dry to a matte texture. They do not dry out my lips at all. The pink shade is a gorgeous pop of color and the red is very beautiful. They are called 05 Olé Flamingo! and 08 Grand Cru. I took Grand Cru (the red shade) with me to Iceland and I loved how it looks on the lips. The swatches really do not do them justice, they are gorgeous.



Last but not least is the Maybelline the falsies - I am pretty sure I have featured this mascara multiple times on my blog now but I have never actually done a before and after (must add on my to blog list!). I am always trying out new mascaras but I make sure I have either Maybelline the falsies or the Rocket to fall back on if the new one is crap. I always use the waterproof version and it really does make my lashes look fuller and longer.

Well that was short September favorites but to be honest September went by so quickly. I really need to step up my game and sort my uni out. I am such a procrastinator (is that even a word?) 

Thank you so much for reading :)
