October Favourites


This month has shot by so fast, it doesn't even feel like it even happened.

In my NARS Blame It On Nars Palette, I received the NARS Ita Brush, which is the mini vrsion and soo cute, and I have been using it non-stop, especially paired with my NARS Casino Bronzer. Using these two together, cuts the time I take to contour in half! I talked more about the NARS Casino Bronzer hereAnother perfect couple is the Wilkos Foundation Brush and Maybelline's Matte Maker Mattifying Powder which both set my undereyes perfectly, making sure it dosn't crease whatsoever, whilst highlighting my undereyes too. I have hereditary dark circles, and these two perfectly conceal them (obviously when using concealer too). 

Essence's Silky Touch Blush in 70 Kissable is a gorgeous mauve-y pink shade that I love using as I feel that these kind of colours suit my skintone a lot and look very natural on me. This blush looks even more beautiful on. When applying my blush, I'm currently loving the Real Techniques Cheek Brush from Nic's Picks, as it picks up just the right amount of product. From the same set, I've also been loving the Duo-Fibre Face Brush for applying my face powder with throughout the day as I have oily skin and have to mattify my face, especially my t-zone. As this brush is duo-fibre, it makes it easier for myself not to cake on the powder, as that is quite easy to do usually especially when I'm having to constantly top up my powder.The last two brushes I have been loving are eBay's Kabuki Round Top and Angled Brushes which I have been loving for my Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation recently. The brushes buff in my foundation so well and makes it look skin like. Likewise with the foundation, it lasts all day and looks super natural, however it is currently a bit too dark for me, so I'm just (im)patiently waiting for the shade down to be in stock.

This month, I have been using Carmex in the tube form religiously, and now I wake up with super soft lips which are nowhere near as dry as they used to be a few months ago. I highly recommend this product to everyone as it's super easy to apply throughout the day. Soap and Glory's Supercat Eyeliner took a while for me to get used to as I've used liquid eyeliner for about 5 or so years now, but this eyeliner is really good as it doesn't budge once it sets. It's also super easy to remove, which I like about it too. The reason I bought this was because my liquid eyeliner was continously getting on my eyelashes, as I was applying it and it irritated me as it would dry at the beginning of my lashes. But I don't have this problem with Soap and Glory's Supercat Eyeliner

I have really been into nail polishes recently and Essence's Gel Nail Polish in 48 My Love Diary has not come off my nails whatsoever this month. It's a gorgeous slightly pink-y shade that looks really natural and chic. This month, I have really been into wearing fake nails and Nailene's Ultra Precise Nail Glue is the best nail glue I have used so far. My nails last at least 2-3 weeks with this nail glue as it really does 'stick' the face nails to my actual nails.  A new purchase for me, and new love, has been Biore's Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser as it removes the very last of my makeup (even waterproof mascara!) and leaves my skin feeling oh soft.

What have you been loving this month?
