My Favourites: October



It's okay. I'm not panicking. It's okay. Christmas is in less than 2 months. Try not to panic. Soon it'l be 2017.  Another month has been and gone, and I have to say, I did a lot of splurging on makeup. Since finally moving and settling in, I could sort out my finances and purchase a couple new pieces that have 100% been loved this October.


I did a colourpop haul at the beginning of the mont here and have literally not stopped using two of the products this month. Firstly is my all time favourite eyeshadow which is the Colourpop Super Shock Shadow 'LaLa'. I chose this one over Weenie because it comes out a little bit more copper looking which I think looks perfect on the eyes at this time of the year. The application is effortless (I find it best to use your fingers) and the formula is seriously like something I've never used before, so creamy and blendable and pack a great pigment!




I have been obsessed over my Colourpop Lippie Stix 'Poison' so often this month because I just can't get over how unique this shade is. This product has appeared loads on the blog since I've purchased it and for good reason. I love how easy these Lippie Stix applicators make it to apply and they are so comfortable and opaque. I recommend picking up the matching lip liner as well because I don't know if I'd be able to find an exact or close match in the drugstore! 




Next is a brow product! I recently talked about the disaster I had using the Rimmel Brow Kit because it was so auburn toned that it did not suit my brows at all! The Hi Impact Brow Palette* has massively changed my brow game! The shade 'Ash' may look insanely blonde for my brows, but I've had the problem of using overly dark products before, so this shade actually matches my brows perfectly. The powder lasts all day and doesn't turn 'flakey' either at the end of the day. 

Next would have to be the entire Lush Halloween range. Just the whole thing. I picked up a load of their products and blogged about it on this haul post here and have used up the last of the bath products last weekend. Lush seriously pulled out the big guns with this year's Autumn range and yes, you've guessed right, I will 100% be heading to Lush again for all their Christmas products in November/December time too! 

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution 'Glastonberry' is that perfect Vampy purple shade that I've been adoring this month. I wrote my Autumnal Makeup Look blog post in which this lipstick took centre stage. I'm literally obsessed and can't believe this is my first (but definitely not my last) Charlotte Tilbury lipstick. I was terrified because it swatched a lot more purple on me than I thought it would be but in fact that's exactly why I love it - vampy lips always. 



Lastly is a forever running favourite which is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. Although I've been loving this for pretty much 5 months running, I recently just picked up a new bottle which reminded me that I needed to include it on the blog again. There's a reason why this is so hyped up, mainly because it's bloody fantastic in my personal opinion. This gives my lashes such a fullness that I have only experienced with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (which I can't be bothered to spend a fortune on again).  

I hope you all had a lovely October and Happy Halloween! May our next few months be overfilled with Christmas decorations, Cinnamon Yankee Candles and the freak out that we will be entering 2017! Let me know what you've been loving this October.

    1. Thank you! I know, I got it when there was an international shipping promotion, I think I'll wait till they do it again to make another order! xx

  5. Glastonberry is such a good shade, I also highly recommend Bond Girl and Very Victoria - both are gorrrgeous and basically live in my purse 24/7. I've always wanted to try that little pumpkin from Lush but I don't have a bath tub so that defeats the whole purpose. I'll continue to dream until the day I live in a home with one!

  9. Glastonberry is sooo beautiful, I remember watching a ton of tutorials on YouTube and everyone was raving about it, I think it was 1 or 2 years ago. Love to see how timeless it is <3
