September Favourites

I'm not too sure if monthly favourites will be a thing here at Shrinking Wallet, but I've managed to discover some amazing products in September that I have to share!

NARS Creamy Concealer in Custard
Oh my word! This concealer is amazing! It has the perfect coverage and consistency for under eyes and blemishes. It definitely rivals Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer, which was my holy grail concealer. I can't decide which I like better since using NARS Creamy Concealer.

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Rose Scented
This is my first Prep + Prime Fix +. I actually purchased 3 other scents when they were released a few weeks ago (Yuzu, Cucumber and Coconut). Being an indecisive person, I had a mighty tough time deciding which scent to use first. My love for rose scented made me choose the rose version first. I love the smell of this Fix +, and it's great at adding a bit of moisture back into your skin. Someone recommended spraying my dried up Anastasia Beverley Hills Dipbrow Pomade with this stuff, and it really helped moisten the product (sorry, I can't remember who it was, as I'm having troubles with Disqus importing previous comments after purchasing my domain name).

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Forever EDP
Technically this should have been an August favourite, since I discovered (and reviewed) this perfume in August (read review here). This is the perfect blend of fruity and floral, and it has been my go-to perfume, when I need a break from my favourite perfume of all time (Chloe de Roses).

L-R: NARS Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte; Too Faced Love Flush Blush How Deep Is Your Love; Too Faced Love Flush Blush Love Hangover
NARS Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte
I finally bit the bullet and purchased the NARS Audacious Lipstick from Mecca. I'm $47 poorer, but happier with a gorgeous lipstick. It's creamy and crazy pigmented. One swipe is all you need for an even, perfect coverage! Brigitte is a nude pink shade (despite it looking quite a bright, bold colour in the pictures above), and I'm absolutely in love with it. I highly recommend checking out the Audacious lipstick range.

Too Faced Love Flush Blush in How Deep Is Your Love and Love Hangover
I recently reviewed these two beauties (read here), so I won't ramble on about them. But they've definitely become my favourite blushes, alongside the Hourglass Ambient Blushes. With no fallout, fairly pigmented, cute and gorgeous packaging, how does one NOT love these babies?!

Would love to hear your favourites, as I'm always looking for new products to try, so please share the love and leave a comment below!

P.S. I have a giveaway on Instagram to win AUD$300. It ends this Sunday, so hurry on over to enter!
