Beauty Bits You Need To Invest In This Autumn!

12 September 2017


Now I don't know about you, but I for one certainly am a massive fan of Autumn! I just love it. I love everything about it! I can tell you now, I'm no summer fan. If you are like me who dreads the boiling hot sun, sweat-filled days and annoying insects then you also probably couldn't wait for it all to cool down.

Now we are back to the chilly mornings, piping hot cups of pumpkin spice lattes and cute snuggly scarves! I sound so old before my time, I really do but that is what I love about it all so much. 

I mean it is the perfect season really, not too hot or cold. It's like Spring but the complete opposite and with both seasons the amazing fashion trends begin! Where there is fashion - there is makeup. 

I have been quite fussy as of late with my beauty buys though because, despite some products going viral on Instagram with everyone raving over the latest Too Faced "I Want Kandee" eye shadow palette or Jeffree Star lipstick, I'm just not that interested, to be honest. 


I have actually become stricter with what I am buying now make up wise simply because I have bought products for the sake of it and barely used them. However here I have been lusting after these for a while and over the past couple of weeks got them one by one.





NYX Ultimate Multi-finish  Palette "Warm Rust"




I know this palette has been out now for probably a year but I still think it is super pretty and who cares if it isn't the latest product on the market? I think this palette in "Warm Rust" is incredibly fitting for Autumn with all its pretty nudes, browns and dusky pinks. I have been using it for the past few days and I am impressed by the quality.

This is the first eyeshadow palette I have purchased from the NYX collection despite the odd singular eyeshadow, so I am pleased how they literally last the entire day, the eyeshadows are very versatile where they are easy to blend, the pigment is alright but not amazing.

I will add that there is not too much shimmer which is what I like because recently I have gone off a lot of shimmery eyeshadows. I just feel that they are too vibrant for the every day sometimes. 

There are a fair decent amount of matte shadows here, I've been loving those much more and I have been using a small lick of shimmer over them which is enough. 

There have been some mixed reviews from what I have read about this palette though but I suppose it's up to the individual's own experience using this product. For me, it has been positive because for £16 this palette is basically giving me what I wanted and you get what you pay for at the end of the day. 



Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment "Slow Ride"




Oh how I love this product!

Now I ended up actually buying only two of these liquid lipsticks from Nars, this one in this gorgeous burgundy brown and Walk This Way which is quite a dark pink which it looks amazing on. Slow Ride is hands down my favourite out of the whole collection simply because it is not only perfect for this season but this shade goes with everything. 

It has gone with every single one of my outfits, I have received a lot of compliments on it too and I feel really confident in this colour. Usually, I opt for just a dark red or pink but I have started switching over to browns nowadays, this one is by far the best I own.  

The quality of the Nars Powermatte Lip Pigments is absolutely fantastic. Now usually I buy a matte lipstick and it crumbles on my lips throughout the day or never even makes it to the end of the day. However, this product has lasted me hours - a good six hours at the most before renewing it. The formula is very light, the coverage keeps its word and completely covers any bare inch of your lips. 



Gucci Bloom Fragrance 30ml 




This new fragrance is out of the world! It's my current favourite and the packaging is ever so beautiful, wouldn't you agree? It was released in August but I first saw this one over on Instagram as one of my favourite models in Japan was sporting it on my feed. 

When I saw it the day after over in Boots, I had one whiff and then I immediately made the reckless decision to purchase it. Any regrets? Nope. I'm glad I did! It's a very sexy, alluring and heavy floral scent. It would be ideal for any date or night out with your girl mates too! 

I would say this scent is slightly musky with a hint of citrus, heavy accents of orris root and Chinese honeysuckle too. There is the usage of white flowers being sambac Jasmine and tuberose there too which are very dominant. I suppose that is what makes it such a devilishly delicious scent. Definitely, have a try if you end up passing this in stores! 

Mac Matte Lipstick "Paramount"




Another Autumn lippy favourite would have to be this lipstick in the shade "Paramount" by MAC. It With it being a beautiful warm brown with a satin finish, I find it is quite a long-lasting lipstick and lasts usually around a good two or three hours before reapplication on your lips.

However I do find it a bit too dry sometimes and quite a stodgy formula, it is fairly decent for the price of £15 as the quality is good. It keeps your lips incredibly slick with its high-fashion texture, I would say it is a good value for money at the end of the day. 

I always love to pop this lipstick on with a black turtle neck top and a pair of my brown ankle boots. Paramount is an amazing shade for empowering yourself for Autumn! It's such a lovely shade and I wouldn't miss this one if I were you! 




I hope you found this small collection of my Autumn beauty favourites a tad interesting! What are you loving so far? Have you got that one favourite product you love to use during this season too?
