Autumn Favourites

Hello lovelies,
As I did with my Summer favourites I thought doing a seasonal collective favourites post may be a better depiction of things that I am currently loving, rather than just things I have been using a lot because I tend to get ready in a rush. So enough with the rambles, here are the things I have been enjoying more as the weather has started to get colder and the days are shorter.
My T-zone has become really oily with the recent weather change and this foundation just seems to be perfect at preventing shiny skin whilst still having a really natural, subtly dewy finish. It is a little lighter coverage than I normally go for but with a foundation brush this is a medium coverage. (review)

Firstly NARS eye shadows full stop are amazing, they have a creamy velvet like texture that don't crease at all even without applying a lid primer (that comes with the palette). Secondly, how perfect are these shades for this time of year. There are transitional and festive shades, but can just as easily be paired for subtle day looks. At £35 for 6 shadows, a primer and a brush I think it would be a beautiful gift for someone...namely yourself.
I Bought this a few weeks ago and after hearing mixed reviews I think this is a bit of a Marmite product but I love this. I apply it as a base for my bronzer if I want a matte finish, or alone when I want a dewy finish. I rub my finger on to the product then wipe my finger on to a buffing brush. This allows for buildable coverage and keeps the product clean. 

I Thought this looked awful when I first saw how thick the product was on the applicator. Seriously, this looks as though it would create some overly clumpy lashes, but I was massively mistaken. My lashes have never look so long, curled, fanned out and voluminous than when I wear this. I will definitely be buying the full size product. 
Again I wasn't too sure on this pencil at first. I am a massive fan of the YSL brow pencil is Ash but my sister assured me this was just as good, at at a fraction of the price (£2.99!) it had to be worth a shot. Verdict; well it's my new fave. I miss my spooley, but the texture and shade are perfect. 

Honestly I love this shade all year round but with me wearing darker lips at the moment I love wearing a matching nail varnish and I just can't get this shade off my nails at the moment. 

If you would like to know my current skincare faves I posted my Evening Skincare Routine the other day so check that out if you would like some combination skin care inspiration.
