Lately I've Been Lovin #12

I haven't shared my favourites since July, can you beleeeeeeve it?! So this post will include what I've been lovin' over August, September and October. I usually make a list of all the products I'm having a love affair with but for some reason I didn't this month and now I'm sure I've forgot to list all my favourites. #bbloggerproblems

Conscious Skincare Sweet Orange & Frangipani Body Butter*: This right here is a body butter with a difference. Gone is the thick, gloopy, sticky feeling most of us are left with after using a butter. This one from Conscious Skincare is light as air. When I first opened the package and lifted the pot I was sure it was only going to be half full, thats how light it is. I hadn't heard of Conscious Skincare untill this heavenly scented pot made it's way into my grasps but the products are handcrafted, made to order and free from sls, phtalates, synthetic or chemical preservatives, colours or fillers. Don't be fooled by the light, whipped cream texture, this body butter means business. Not only does the scent linger on the skin long after you apply it but it leaves the skin moisturised all day long. If like me you hadn't heard of this brand before, you can find more info on the website The Sweet Orange & Frangipani Body Butter costs 18.99 for 250ml.

Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12HR Wear 'Tiramisu': The best eyeliner ever. That, is, all. Swatch & review.

Clarins Graphic Expression Face & Blush Powder: One compact that can be used to add a flush of pink to your cheeks, add a subtle bronzed effect, set foundation, brighten the complexion and even contour depending on your skin tone? Yes please! I haven't let this baby out of my sight since getting it back in August. You can read my post here and see it in all it's unused glory.

Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation & Concealer*: If you read this post you'll know how much I adore this foundation. I mentioned that the concealer creases under my eye's but instead of letting it go to waste while I obsess over the foundation I've been using the concealer to cover up any redness on my cheeks on days I'm not wearing foundation. My favourite way of applying the foundation is still with either the Real Techniques Buffing Brush or the Sephora Mineral Powder Brush. Fans of YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat will love this too.

Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick '04': Sephora can do no wrong in my eyes when it comes to makeup. The skincare leaves a lot to be desired, it's awful but the makeup I can't fault. I've been singing the praises of this lippy here on the blog already (link) and as you can see, I've worn it down quite a bit already.

Hydraluron: Believe the hype, this stuff is incredible. I was able to feel a difference in my skin from the very first use. My skin felt smoother and more plump even though I needed to exfoliate. It's light on the skin, once dry you can't feel it at all.

Essie 'Neo Whimsical': This is the colour that attached itself to my nails through most of September and October. It's not very often I'll remove my chipped nail polish and apply the same colour but Neo Whimsical is such a gorgeous, easy to wear colour and unlike the majority of Essie polishes I've tried, it lasts a long time on my nails. Don't think I've showed swatches on my blog yet but I have posted a pic on instagram here.
