October Favorites

So, November is finally here, and I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by! Maybe because it was a new year for me, or just because uni was so fast paced, but this year has just gone sooooooo quickly! Anyway, a few of these products i've had for a while and they've made their way into my daily routine, but i've never shown them before, so they deserve to shown. The rest, are just products I've picked up recently and have started loving!

Urban Decay's Naked Palette - I've had this palette for a few months and I adore it so much!! The colours are extremely pigmented, and even though I haven't used the dark colours as much, this palette is simply amazing and will forever be a favorite.

Maybelline's Falsies Mascara - The only thing I can say about this is 'WOW'. I picked this up on sale because i've heard so much about it, and i'm not sure if its because if the curved wand or the formula, but this mascara is brilliant. It really gives the look of false eyelashes!

Rimmel London Kate Collection Long Lasting Lipstick 05 - I've mentioned this before a few times, and all I can say is that this berry lipstick is affordable, the perfect formula and amazing colour.

Maybelline Super Stay 24hr Foundation in Sand Beige - This foundation gives great coverage and long wear. The only problem is there are like, 5 colours that are nearly identical, and I just happened to pick one, that if applied too heavily, has the potential to turn orange. If I apply just a thin, even coat this foundation is the bomb.

BYS blusher in CandyFloss - A really light candy pink that, I think, is a perfect colour for a nice soft flush of colour.

Sportsgirl Nail It! Nail polish in Guava - I haven't used this in a while as I'm waiting until we have good weather because this colour begs for sun! A few coats of this gorgeous coral and it it reaches full coverage. The only problem is it chips relatively quickly.

Sally Hansen Base and Top Coat - I got sent this after I complained about a Rimmel nail polish staining my nails yellow (mentioned here) and it's actually really good. Not that I would expect anything else from a Sally Hansen product. This is a must have when doing my nails.

BYS eyeshadow palette in Metallics - My sister got me this palette ages ago, and I've barely used it, because as you may know, I have a few issues with elaborate eyeshadow, but last week I got this really nice and simple eyeliner look going with the blue and green colours, so now this palette is a favorite of mine! It's also a really cheap and pigmented palette.

Australis Mineral Inject Lipgloss in Lambada - At first I was against this lipgloss because it was a really milky consistency that left visible lines from application, but after a while and very thin application and spreading out with fingers, it has begun to grow on me. A very different colour to anything I have in my collection, and I love the smell!

Lush Cupcake Mask (not pictured) - You know the feeling of a freshly cleansed and moisturized face, after the moisturizer has sunk in, leaving an incredibly smooth face? This is what this mask does! Although a little pricey for the small tub that has a life of only 3 weeks, this chocolate-smelling mask is to die for, and will definitely be repurchased!

Do you have any products you loved this month?

  1. This is the seventh time I've seen people rave about the NAKED palette in this week. That justifies getting it, right??

    :) Great post!


  2. Honestly, it's worth getting it! The pigmentation is amazing and there are a heap of neutral colors perfect for all the time :)

  3. I was one of those people saying I don't need the NAKED palette I have so many neutral shadows. I love it and I think I reach for it a lot more than any other palettes. It's just an easy go to palette :)
