October Favourites

Friday, 1 November 2013
It's the end of the month again...woooo time flies.  This can mean nothing but MONTHLY FAVOURITES TIME. So, I will be gathering my October favourites for you in this post.

As autumn paves its way into our lives, I enjoy myself transitioning into the amazing autumnal colours and experiment new looks with them.  My first favourite that I will be sharing with you is indeed one of those colours that has been colouring my lips in a lot of makeup looks I must say. This is the :

Rimmel by Kate Lasting Finish no. 107 which is this amazing dark berry red colour.  It has a soft formula, which feels good on the lips, and a candy-like smell.  What I love most about it, besides everything..haha.., is its matte finish. Being matte makes it more autumn appropriate especially this season with matte beauty products as the trend.  I must also add that it does live by its name Lasting finish because it lasts a very long time.

Part of my recent shopping spree earlier this might, which I'll be putting in a haul, was the Maybelline New York Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in black.  I have been using this everyday ever since.  Its formula is great; easy to apply and not clumpy or dry after a couple of hours.  It also comes with a really good brush, so that's a bonus, however I use a fine liner brush instead of the one it comes with.  I feel like it has become the essential to my smokey eye look.

Another eye related product that I've loved through the end of September and this whole month is the Mac Woodwinked Eyeshadow.  Well there is not much one can say about this, everyone knows its amazing.  The colour, the texture, the way it blends....purrrrrrfect.

Because of the change in the air I get a lot of dry lips, which is pretty irritating.  So, this year I decided to shield my lips from such horrors before it all starts in the hope that it prevents it.  And IT WORKED thanks to  Nivea Lip Care Essential.  It has a thick formula that lasts longish considering its a lip-balm. Applying some in the morning before I go to work, after I shower and before I go to bed and miracles happen.

As I said in my last post this month has been super busy and I couldn't help but get exhausted and feel sleep deprived.  That means that my under eye circles have been worst than ever.  However, there was Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Classic Beige to save my life.  I have bad under eye circles naturally as my skin around my eyes is so thin that my capillaries show, so covering them is very hard.  But this has been great.  With a very good coverage and a slight glow it literally makes you look like you have just woken up from the best sleep you ever had.

Those were some bits and bobs that I have been having a heart to heart with this past month and hoped you liked it.  If I had to suggest anything of those products that you should get would be the Rimmel by Kate Lasting Finish no. 107 because it is the perfect red for this season and trend. Feel free to share what you have loved and also disliked this month, I'd love to hear about it.  I will talk to you very soon :) xx
