October Favourites

Evening lovelies!

I can't believe I am writing another favourites post, it seems like yesterday I was writing my September favourites!

So October for me was a busy month, settling back in to college, early starts and late nights, which has left my skin a little worse for wear.

I decided this month to switch things up a little and shop my stash to recover some old favourites of mine.

Here are some of the products I have been loving this month:

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation: this is relatively new to me but I have been wearing it almost everyday since buying this almost 2 weeks ago. Check out my review on this here.

Caudali√© Beauty Elixir: I picked this up while on holiday in Italy in August and have been using this almost everyday this month. I spray this on after cleansing my skin and I then apply my moisturiser. I haven't noticed much of a difference, but my skin is feeling smoother and looking a lot clearer so I am going to put it down to using this product.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Matte Finish lipstick #107: I have been really into wearing deep berry/red shades this month which is totally unlike me. This has been my go-to berry shade in my collection and have been wearing it to death this month. This is a great dupe for Deeply Adored from the Marilyn Collection from MAC. Couldn't recommend it more!

Elizabeth Arden Rose Illuminator: I bought this way back in April and have fallen back in love, this is great if you are looking for a subtle highlight. I adore rose gold so I can definitely see myself using this a lot more this month.

Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo #40- Permanent Taupe: This has become my go-to eye product of the month, I use this along with Satin Taupe eyeshadow from MAC and a Rimmel Scandaleyes liner in Taupe. I blend this all with a MAC 217 blending brush to create the perfect daytime smoky eye look. I have been wearing this look a lot this month.

MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow: As I mentioned already I have been pairing this eyeshadow with the Maybelline Color Tattoo and Rimmel eyeliner. These three products really compliment each other nicely.

Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof kohl #4 Taupe: Since the launch of these liners at the beginning of the month there has been a lot of hype surrounding them, now I can see why. These last ages on the waterline without smudging and they are waterproof!? As mentioned I have been pairing this with my Maybelline Color Tattoo and Satin Taupe from MAC, which all work great for a subtle daytime smoky eye.

Lush Ponche shower gel: Since the release of the Lush Christmas products in October I went along to pick up my beloved Snow Fairy to discover Ponche. I bought a smaller bottle to try it out and immediately fell in love! So I went out the next day to buy the full size and haven't looked back. I have to admit I am liking this one a lot more than my Snow Fairy (I know!) I adore orange scents so that may be why it appeals a lot more to me.

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara: Since first discovering this mascara last year I have loved it, this is my second tube! I rekindled my love with it early in October and have been using it ever since, it really defines my lashes and makes them appear a lot longer, I wouldn't say it adds volume to my lashes but it separates my lashes beautifully. I have noticed Soap & Glory have released a new similar mascara so I will definitely be trying that one out since I was so impressed with this one.

Topshop Pastel Animal Print scarf: I am rarely one to buy something full price from Topshop, but I decided to treat myself to this having lost my first half stone in the middle of October through Slimming World which you can read more about here. I am a huge lover of scarves so I thought this would be perfect. This goes really well with my khaki army jacket and is really versatile. This is still available from Topshop.
