Hi everyone! It's the beginning of November, so it's that time again to share with you my most used and favorite products from the month of October. I really fell into Fall this month and started using darker more vibrant colors on my eyes, lips and face. I am also going to throw in a couple non beauty favorites at the end. If you have any questions about any products mentioned or want a more in depth review, please don't hesitate to contact me!
Here are the products I have been loving:
|L-R: "Frosted Lilac", "Rust", "Prune", "Daisy" and "Midnight"|
I used NYX eyeshadow all month long, I almost always reached for a single shadow from my collection no matter what look I was doing. Above are the 5 I used the most.
This is pretty much the only eyeliner I used in October, it's the Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips custom eye enhancing Gel CreamLiner trio for Hazel eyes. These are highly pigmented, great for doing wings or looks on the top lash line and for tight lining and lining the water line. These stay put all day long no matter where you put them! The trio comes with a shimmery brown, a purple with tiny silver glitter and a jet black with larger purple/pink glitter. I really love these and highly recommend them! They are worth every penny.
This is my all time favorite mascara! I have not found one that I love more yet from the drugstore or from a higher end brand. This gives my short thin lashes so much volume, definition and length. I wore this every day in October.
I wore 2 lips combos for the whole month. Red for a night out or if I was wearing a natural eye look and Berry nude when I wanted a more natural lip shade.
|Hard Candy Visibly Wet Shockingly Glossy lip pencil in "Must Have" and Hard Candy Glossaholic lip gloss in "Fireball".|
|Rimmel London Lasting Finish lipstick in "Airy Fairy" and Hard Candy's Glossaholic lip gloss in "Gorgeous".|
Foundation and Concealer:
|Femme Couture Flawless Touch creme foundation and Revlon PhotoReady Concealer in Light.|
Blush and Bronzer:
|NYC (New York Color) Matte Bronzer in "Sunny" and Rimmel London Lasting Finish blush in "Berry".|
I have 3 favorites this month that fall into the Hair category.
#1: Hair Bows
#2: Ion Anti Frizz Solutions styling mousse:
This is a lightweight medium hold mousse. I used this every single day in October whether I scrunched my natural curls or blow dried my hair straight. It really does tame frizz very well and leave your hair feeling soft, shiny and silky. This product claims to be a heat protectant as well which is an added bonus. It is alcohol and paraben free, completely vegan, and cruelty free. I am enjoying this a lot, I will be going back to Sally's to get more when this is gone.
#3: Got2B Dazzling shine spray
I have been using this product for years and it does exactly what it claims, it provides shine and de-frizzes the hair!
I used these two brushes a lot last month. They are from Spa Resource and can be purchased at Walmart.
I did not really use one particular fragrance or nail polish a lot in October, I changed all of those things up pretty often throughout the month which is why those categories are not included this time around. I do however want to add some non beauty favorites in my post this month - just a couple of extra things I have been loving all month long. This is a fun thing to do, since all I ever really talk about on my blog are things related to being beautiful.
The first non beauty thing I have been loving is SWEETS! I know, not good for my health, but I have a huge sweet tooth.
These Skittles satisfied my sweet tooth cravings a lot in October! :)
I just want to share one last thing with you all. It is an album that has been playing over and over again since it came out in late August. It's David Guetta's Nothing But the Beat: Deluxe Edition. If you like dance music and house - I highly suggest you check this album out if you haven't yet. I am obsessed. The Deluxe Edition of this album has two discs, one with collaborations and one with just straight up house music. My top 5 songs from both discs according to iTunes are Titanium (Feat. Sia), Crank It Up (Feat. Akon), The Future, The Alphabeat and Lunar (Feat. Afrojack).
And that is it. Those are all of the things I have been loving ever so much in the month of October, 2011! Try some of these things out for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
I want to send peace and love to all of you and thank you so much for reading!
