October favourites!

How is it already the end of October! This month has been crazy, I’ve sent off my UCAS application and I’m now waiting for offers!

As well as all the events that have happened, I’ve also discovered some favourites that I want to share to hopefully encourage you to buy a product that you’ve been wanting to!

The first product is the Mario Badescu drying lotion. Now this was actually a tough decision for me because I’d tried so many spot products that simply hadn’t worked but I bought it anyway and it was the best choice I’ve ever made! I apply it every night on my most inflamed and problematic spots and by the morning it isn’t gone but it is definitely less obvious. It has quickly become my holy grail this month!

As well as skincare, I’ve also found some makeup favourites! The first is a foundation and it’s the makeup revolution Conceal and Define foundation. This provides amazing coverage for only £9! I also love the applicator as it has a large concealer-like wand which I think makes it easier to apply though it may soak up more product due to the sponge. This however, isn’t much of an issue to me and I like the product so much that it wouldn’t matter as much even if I did care.

This month I have also fallen in love with my morphe 24G Grand Glam palette. This is packed full of pink, brown and champagne shades which could easily provide many makeup looks. For an everyday look, I like to simply blend a dusty pink shade into my crease and it instantly makes me look so much more put together. Some shades are also versatile and can be used as highlight, blush or contour!

Estee Lauder’s Pure colour Love glosses has also made it to my favourites this month as these highly-pigmented glosses are a perfect finish to any makeup look and the shade I have is beautifully autumnal. I will admit that the price tag is quite high but the pay off is definitely worth it, especially since the lasting power is also great.

The final makeup favourite product is the Anastasia Beverley Hills cream contour. This is extremely versatile and can be worn for a heavy contour or a natural one. The six shades also help with intensity. I bought this last year when I was in America as it was half price but I wasn’t experienced with cream contour so barely used it but now I’ve practiced and it’s a staple in my makeup collection!

Now, last but not least is my final October favourite and it is the Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin body spray. This is a sickly sweet Autumnal scent which I absolutely love! I literally saturate my clothes with it every morning and I’ve barely ran out! I always get lots of compliments when I wear it and I love getting small wafts of it through the day as a little pick-me-up. I’d definitely recommend it for the price!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed reading my favourites of this month! Please share yours down below!
