I am sorry that I am writing about my September favourites only now but it is better later than never, right?
I love writing these, as it it always great to see what you’ve been loving, beauty wise.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review and swatches)
I have rediscovered this little gem. The colour is spot on for me, and I like the shape of it which allows a very quick but still a precise application.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride (review and faceswatches)
Love Autumn makeup, all the berry and wine shades, and this was the blush of the month, not only I’ve used it on my friend’s wedding day but I have been also using it on myself pretty much every day. It gives that beautiful flush with a hint of subtle golden shimmer.
Tarte tartelette Amazonian clay matte palette, ($46 from Sephora)
A lot of love for tarte lately, this
I haven’t seen True Blood (maybe I should?) but I know that there are a lot of fans of this show who are probably very excited about this Tarte collaboration.
I wish there was a Game Of Thrones collection though! Sorry, I just had to insert this photo. If you follow me on twitter you probably know about my little obsession of these two 😉

It is the time when I am telling you about my favourite products of the year. I did not pick a product in each category just for the sake of having one, but rather only those that really stood out for me.
The first part will be about makeup. Here we go…
Base:Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review)
Although there were quite a few “foundations” I loved, this tinted moisturizer was the base of 2014. It gives a natural and glowing light-t0-medium coverage, and leaves the skin looking beautiful. HydraQuench is one of my favourite skincare ranges, and this TM is just as good, as everything else, works perfectly for my very dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. I am very pleased that it never accentuated any dry patches I sometimes have.
Concealer: Clarins Instant Concealer (review)
Definitely the best concealer out there, covers the dark circles and brightens the under eye area, doesn’t get in the fine lines, stays on really well.
Powder: Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet (review)
I have to say that
