Well hello there October! We’ve been waiting for you. September has been one busy month for me; getting back into the swing of things and I must say that I think I’m doing pretty well. For once in my life I feel like I’ve got things under control. I enjoy work and uni (well, most of the time), I do fun things with my friends and I somehow managed to finish 2 drawings and upload many more blogposts this month. Honestly, I am proud of myself.


September has been a month of getting up early and having little to no time to get ready. I like to go for a nude lip because it’s quick and easy. My favorites of the month have been MAC lipstick ‘Twig’, Essence lipstick ’06 Barely There’ and P2 Pure Color Lipstick ‘012 Kärntnerstrasse’. The latter I purchased in Cologne last year and it’s a lipstick I always come back to, just because it goes with almost every eyeshadow and outfit. I’ve also been loving MUA Power Pout ‘Crazy In Love’ which is a berry/pink lip balm type, it lasts surprisingly long on the lips and I got complimented a lot on it!

Can you hit pan on a creamy product? Well, if it’s a thing then I hit pan on the Maybelline Color Tattoo ‘Creamy Beige 98’. I use this as base for my eyeshadow, I just blend it out all over the lid and I find my eyeshadow and eyeliner stay in place all day. Definitely one of those products that I will just completely use up and repurchase over and over again. Maybelline Color Tattoos are a favorite in general, always, such a good formula and shade range.

My favorite nailpolish of the month has been Alessandro nail polish ‘Sophisticated Red’ as it’s the perfect brown/red for fall. I have dedicated an entire blogpost to this so I won’t ramble on about it. My last favorite this month’s my ZARA Woman Fruity Eau de Toilette. I bought this back in May when I was out shopping with my Polish friend. I’m very bad at describing scents, it’s just a fresh, sweet and indeed, fruity, perfume. ZARA’s got a huge selection of perfumes so definitely worth going in there if you’re looking for an affordable new scent. They could be a bit more creative when it comes to naming their scents though.. But that’s just me.

What’s your September been like? Wishing you all an amazing October!
