September Favourites: Beauty and Lifestyle

Chanel Raffinement, Hourglass Mood Exposure, Mac Costa Riche

I feel like everybody has already done their favourites for the month last week which feels a bit weird but as September is officialy over now, let me throw in my two cents on the subject.

First Impressions: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush and Bronzer

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Mood Exposure, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer Luminous Bronze LightRemember that cheeky midnight Space NK haul I mentioned earlier. Well, here are my first impressions. I don’t think I’ll be doing any makeup shopping in the next months but oh, am I happy with these two purchases. First of all, you got to hand it to Hourglass for the idea of swirling up their powders and it’s not just pretty to look at.
