I thought I would do a little round up of some of my favourite products in October. Some of these are really old but I am only just discovering them which make them shiny and new to me. Here are some of things I have been utterly obsessed with in October. One thing I thought I would never ever say is there is actually more beauty products in my favourites than food ( I know, I’m shocked to )!
What I love about this time of year is that shops are full to the brim of Christmas goodies and lots of limited edition products. And that’s exactly where I found these Tanya Burr lip glosses, they came as a two pack under the cutest name ever, kissmas. I am already a massive fan of her cosmetics so I was pretty excited for the Christmas range.
My absolute favourite product in October ( possibly this year ) is from the Michelle Keegan with Revlon. This balm stain in 005 crush is the most amazing lip colour I have ever used, my next pay day I will be treating myself to the entire range. The colour stays put all day long without having to reapply and because it’s a balm my lips feels soft, if you don’t have this in your make up bag you need it.
I have been looking for some inspiration, motivation to kick start my fitness regime again and I have found it in the form of matcha green tea from pure chimp super tea. So unless you have been living under a rock for the last six months you will know that matcha green tea is a must for anyone who enjoys fitness. I have been thinking about trying it for a while but the fact that it’s bright green has been putting me off, I have finally manned up and I’m loving it, it’s the first step to getting back on my fitness path.
On of my lovely followers who I now consider a friend sent me the most beautiful care package full of goodies, including this Marshmallow pumpkins latte hand gel ( yes she lives in America, because let’s face it the flavour couldn’t be any more American ). It’s from bath and body works, I freaking love everything they do and hate that it’s not made it to England yet. Like seriously when is it coming here because if you haven’t visited one they are like body heaven.
This time of the year is the best in the chocolate department I mean half the sleeves are filled with fun Halloween chocolates and the other half are filled with the start of the Christmas goodies. Including Terrys chocolate orange, I’m pretty sure you can get them all year round but they don’t taste good until the clocks go back. You can only eat them while all cosy in front of the tv with lots of candles lit.
Givenchy extreme volume mascara is my latest favourite mascara, I feel like I get bored with mascaras pretty quickly, I swear every week a new mascara comes out that makes your lashes even fuller than the last. But at the moment Givenchy has my attention, not to mention it makes me feel all grown up.
Over the last few months I have been trying and testing different foundations in a bid to find the perfect drugstore one and I have found it in the form of Maxfactors skin luminizer miracle foundation. I absolutely love it the coverage is amazing and last all day. And as good as any high end foundation I have ever used.
I have possibly eaten hundreds of these Cadburys bugs during October they taste amazing and may or may not have bought several box fulls to keep me going now Halloween is over.
I feel like I’m discovering Relvon for the first time, when I was a small child I remember my mum having the most incredible three draw Revlon box filled with all the make up you could ever want including blue eyeliner ( well it was the 80s ). I remember it being the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and it only came out for special occasions, now I’m older buying Revlon still feels very special to me. Considering six months ago I could barely use lipstick I can’t believe I’m know using a highlighting stock. And with this one I absolutely feel photo ready, it works wonderfully with my max factor foundation and just glades on.
My absolute favourite body lotion purely for the smell is Yves saint Laurent, parisienne. I put it on just before bed and it makes me feel so grown up and sexy it smells like heaven, could possibly be my favourite ever smell.
What have you been loving in October?
