September Favourites '13

 I do realize that we're practically halfway through October and this favourites post is super late. But I thought I'd do one anyway, mostly because I haven't done one of these in a while. When was my last favourites post? May, I think. A lot has changed since then, is all I can say.


 Since September has been exams month for me, my time allotted for makeup has literally been one to two minutes -which gives me time for some BB cream, concealer, powder and mascara. I've been loving my Garnier BB Cream this month. It's super light coverage but it has SPF and it isn't drying which works for me. My Rimmel Stay Matte Powder has helped keep it in place for a tad bit longer, and basically, I like how my skin looks after a little bit of powder, because honestly, with our crappy beginning of October weather, you can't expect anything to stay on your face for long. I can't wait for the cold to replace the heat.

 One big change that has taken place this past month is that I have become comfortable with the no eyeliner look. I do love my mascara, though, and my mascara of choice has to be Maybelline's The Falsies which I have a full review of. My nails have been bare most of the month but in the beginning of September I had Revlon's Enchanted on which I absolutely love. And finally, my most exciting favourite has been Maybelline's Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT1. (full review coming soon!) I've been throwing this on every time I go out because it's just one step extra, but it definitely brightens up your entire look. I officially LOVE bright lipstick.

Other Favourites:

 Exams have definitely NOT been a favourite this past month, but I've found a few bits that have kept me relatively entertained and cheery during those dark days. I have been obsessed with the TV show Mad Men. I'm not quite sure why I never watched it before, but now that I've stated, I'm hooked. I finished season one and am halfway through season two now. It's amazing and if you haven't given it a try, you have to now! 
 Another TV show I've been literally obsessed with (I watch all the episodes twice. Yeah.) is America's Next Top Model Season 20. I've been watching this stuff since as long as I can remember and every time a new season begins, it's happy time for me. But this season, I have to say, is hands down the best season so far.
 For music, I've been loving  The Neighbourhood, He is We and Bridget Mendler. And of course, it goes without saying that We Can't Stop and Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus have been playing on repeat.
 And finally, since we're talking about Miley Cyrus anyway, my favourite movie from the past few months has been LOL. Maybe it's because of my love for chick flicks, but this one was SO nice! And, like I told my sister, what I liked most was that it wasn't a pink chick flick, it was a black one. Which is right up my alley. I watched it four times, if that says something.

 And that will be all. My favourite part of the year is here, so I couldn't be more excited. Who else waiting for Christmas?
