Man, where has this year gone? I'm already thinking about A/W trends and looking at scarfs, hats and coats which i'm a little excited about I must admit. Anyway, I've been loving quite a few different products this month as I decided that I wanted to go down the beauty side of blogger over the fashion side so I had to experiment obviously.

I've been on the look out for the perfect bronzer for so so long now and just could not find one that suited my skin tone and looked like a natural contour. Whilst sorting through my make up I find this Natural Collection bronzer in the shade sun shine, I thought i'd give it ago and i've used this every day this month. The shade is perfect for my skin and when applied with a big blusher brush this is the ideal contour shade for me. The best part is this is ridiculously cheap so make sure you have a look next time you pop into Boots.

Okay, so i'm guessing these will feature in a lot of favourite posts this month but this little baby has been my night time saviour. I love applying this before bed and letting it soak into my lips during the night. I have done a little review on the Maybelline Baby Lips which you can read here if you want where I go in to a bit more detail. I keep this on my bed side table and honestly think it is doing wonders for my lips.

I've never been a big hair care fan but a couple of months ago I noticed this in Boots for a mere £1.75. I instantly bought it and then came home to do a little research. So many bloggers rave about this such as Faye from Faye's Fix and I can totally see why. I've been using this every time I wash my hair for the last two months and my hair is in such good condition. It feels stronger and the scent of this is amazing.

This is a bit of a weird one but i've been loving blue nail varnish so much this month. I'm forever changing my nail polish but this month the only shade I seem to have worn is blue. I posted a picture on instagram of my ombre blue nails to show my love for blue nail polish. Barry M blueberry is my favourite of these three however it is nearly identical to Essie Bikini so teeny that you can hardly tell the difference. I love how blue polishes look with jeans and a white top/jumper they just look super summery.

Argh, I cannot share my love for these enough! These have literally saved my life, I change nail polish around 4/5 times a week so I get very bored of using liquid nail varnish removers and cotton pads. Whilst shopping for holiday mini's I found these in Superdrug and they are incredible. They smell quite strong and you need to wash your hands after using them but they really do speed up the nail varnish removal process and get rid of really stubborn nail colours. I use one pad every time I change my nail varnish so I really need to repurchase these.

I'm sure i've talked about my Mua Undress Me Too palette in a favourites post before but i've really been loving the shades this month. My favourite has to be 'shy' which is the third one in on the top row. I use this as an inner eye highlighter and it's so good. It lasts all day and keeps me looking awake when i'm not at my best. I'm also loving the bronze/copper shades and I love blending them together to create different looks.

What have you been loving this month? Do you love/hate any of these products?
