Hello my lovelies!
I’m back! I have had a few weeks away from my blog this month for various different reasons but I’m back and there is no better way to come back than sharing my favourites with you. October for me has been a complete roller coaster ride full of dreadful lows combined with some amazing personal achievements. I am ending the month on a positive note as I have so much to look forward to including Berlin next month and helping my big sister plan her wedding and CHRISTMAS! This month I have tried to use new products or products that are different to my normal and actually I have really enjoyed it.
Make Up Revolution – Soph X Highlighter Palette see here
When this came out, I knew I had to get my hands on it. As a fellow creator I do try my best to support them BUT only if it appeals to me. I’m not one of these people who buys everything because I just know I wouldn’t use it all. On a serious note, who can refuse a highlighter palette with shades as beautiful as these. I must say on a slight downer I’m not a fan of the colour of the packaging..
Aside from that the highlighters are AMAZING. I love every single color and I know I am going to get so much use out of this. It’s just perfect and she has done an amazing job! The pigmentation is actually pretty impressive and so easy to control how much highlight you want. I know I will be using this for a long period of time because I just can’t seem to put it away or stop looking at it. It’s so affordable for what you get 8 highlighters for £8 – bargain!
Sephora – Supreme Cleansing Oil see here
This really is a first for me having a cleansing oil, I have naturally oily skin so I had no idea how this was going to go down with my skin, but I have fallen in love. This is near enough the only cleanser I have used this month. It’s so easy to use and it does such a good job of removing makeup. It feels so luxurious on your skin while your massaging it in and it leaves your skin feeling so soft afterwards. I’m sad because I want to stop using this because I have no idea when I will be in a Sephora again to pick this up. But, I don’t want to stop using it because it’s so lovely to use. Serious dilemma’s here! Seriously if you have never tried a cleansing oil I really do recommend this one if you pop into Sephora.
L’Oreal – Hydra Genius see here
I have had this in my skin care collection for a few months now waiting for my moisturiser to run out. This was the month I could finally start using it. It’s such a strange consistency because it’s so light and more of a gel/liquid texture. The reviews I have read on this are pretty impressive and I’m realising very quickly why. I normally apply just half a pump which is enough to apply all over my face which really is nothing and it quickly sinks into the skin. I have noticed a real difference in my skin using this. It’s perfect for my oily skin and seems to somehow control this. I’m not a massive fan on the scent but that is really me being picky. I will be doing a full review on this so keep your eyes peeled!
Clinique – Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer see here
I have mentioned this a few times on my blog and there is a reason why – because it’s AMAZING. It has quickly become one of my favourite ever foundations, for me this is a pretty big statement. From the application to the end result I am just truly in love. I love that it is a medium coverage and can be buildable to a high coverage. Normally if I need a high coverage that is long lasting I would use my Estee Lauder Double Wear, this has now demoted and this is seriously my go to. It even means most of the time I don’t need concealer! I just use a brightener for my underneath my eyes. Incredible! I cannot fault this baby and I love it so so much. The shade range is incredible – if you are on the hunt for a new foundation go test this one out you won’t be disappointed!
Marc Jacobs – Dot Perfume see here
I go through phases with perfume. I get bored of a scent after a while and I have to switch it up. This one I hadn’t worn for a while and decided to whip it back out, I fell in love all over again. There is a reason why I love this and it all came back to me. Fragrances for me are so personal and bring back so many different memories and for whatever reason this perfume brings back so many happy memories. This for me is my perfect winter scent and I know I will continue to use it for the next couple of months and smile every time I put it on. It is actually one of my top 3 perfumes and I would still put it in that category.
MAC – Blue Brown Pigment see here
I can’t explain to you how much I adore this pigment. This is truly beautiful and I’m now 100% completely converted to MAC pigments and I want them all. The colour is just stunning, I have never in my life seen anything as beautiful as this. I know that seems like a very bold statement but until you apply it you will have no idea. From different angles the colour changes in different lights and every angle you see it in is beautiful and I am so blown away.
It’s so easy to apply and it doesn’t budge. Obviously the pigmentation is incredible, I just have never used something so amazing. Seriously, this has quickly become one of my favourite ever purchases EVER. I knew as soon as I saw it years ago I would love it but seriously exceeded all my expectations. Go to your local MAC store and swatch this I promise you, you will fall in love I can’t see how anyone couldn’t.
Let me know if you have tried any of these products and your thoughts on them – I would love to know. Also, what have your standout products been this month?
