October Favourites

23 comments
Hey Lovelies, 

Well it's the end of the October which means it's time for a round up of the products everyone's been loving this month!
 

 Haircare

Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff Ease Treatment  
 You apply this to your hair when it's dry, leave it on for 20 minutes and then shampoo and condition as usual. I've been using this as a weekly treatment and I love it. It leaves my hair feeling moisturised and less frizzy, which is great, especially with the muggy weather we've been having lately! Even though it's got henna in it, it won't make your hair red. This product is recommended for brunettes.

Redken Align 12 Protective Straightening Lotion
I got this in my September Joliebox and it's the best product I've ever received from a Beauty Box! I apply it to my hair while it's damp before blow drying. My hair has never felt so smooth and sleek! When this runs out I will definitely be purchasing the full size version!

Lip Products

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
I have done a full review on these which you can read my clicking here. These products are natural looking and very long wearing.
The colours I have are Honey and Crush
Honey is great for a busy day in the office or at school/college. It's a really natural peachy pink colour.
Crush is a berry colour. It's a lot more pigmented than Honey and great for autumn. With this colour I find that you need moisturised lips as it can be a little drying, but it's great if you would  like to try out darker colours and are not quite brave enough!
MAC Lipstick in Spirit
This is a very pigmented colour that's on the dark side of nude. It's slightly brown. I like it because it's long wearing and moisturising on the lips. Spirit is a satin lipstick so it's got quite a matte finish.

  Cheek Products

Dior Amber Diamond
I have done a full review on this which you can read by clicking here. I love this and I have been using it every day in October.
NARS Laguna Bronzer
This is the perfect bronzer and I always go back to it. Even though it's a satin finish it's great for contouring. This product is really finely milled and never looks muddy. You can build it up to make the colour more intense and I think it would suit most skin tones. This month I have been using it for contouring, but it can be also used as an all over bronzer.
MAC Blush in Fever
I think this is the perfect autumn/fall blush. It looks like a deep berry colour in the pan, but it gives you a really health looking flush to your cheeks. It is really pigmented, which means you need the tiniest amount on your brush and a light hand when applying it. 

Brows

MAC 266 Brush
I love this brush for filling in my eyebrows. The bristles are quite dense but the brush it not too thick, so it gives you a really precise application on your brows.
MAC Mystery Eye Shadow
I think this is the perfect brow colour for brunettes! It's quite dark, but it does not give you the dreaded black 'Sharpie' eyebrows. My brows look defined but still natural when I use this, and I haven't been using any other colour on my brows!

Foundation

MAC Studio Fix Fluid
I discovered this foundation in my collection. I've only got a tiny bit left of it so I am tryimg to finish it up. Even though this foundation does smell slightly of paint, it's still a really good product and great for the colder months. MAC Studio Fix Fluid is medium to full coverage, but it still looks natural on the skin. It's also long-wearing and moisturising.When this bottle runs out I may well end up getting another one!

Eye Shadows

It wasn't really a particular eyeshadow I've been loving this month, it's been any gold eyeshadows. I don't know because it's the season and all the leaves in the trees are going golden. Gold is the main colour I've been reaching for this month for my eyes, and Half Baked from Urban Decay, as well as MAC Melon pigment and MAC Amber Lights eye shadow have been favourites of mine this month!

Well I hope you've enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! What have been your October favourites?

    I bought the naked 1 palette yesterday. In love with it already. I was standing htere about an hour trying to pick between one and two. it was so hard but eventually went with one because it matched my skin better. I did love the half-baked color as well. I wrote a review on it for tomorrow. love it.

  7. There are so many bits in here I've had my eye on, not least the Dior Amber Diamond, which looks gorgeous!
    I've also been loving my Revlon Balm Stains of late and have just added 'Honey' to my collection. I really like it, and I know everyone says this about lip colours, but it truly is a 'your lips but better' shade - at least, it is for mine. It's almost as if you can't see it going on, but when I've finished applying it my lips look much better, and it's definitely one for those busy days where you don't want to have to worry about visibly fading colour.
    I keep meaning to try Nars Laguna, but the price tag always puts me off!

    1. Totally agree with you on 'Honey'!
      NARS Laguna is amazing. I've had it for about a year now, use it all the time and still got plenty in the pan, so if you do decide to go for it, it'll def last you ages! It's one of my all time favourite bronzers, got nothing bad to say about it and can highly recommend it! xxx

  8. I love the sound of the Lush hair treatment, I've recently started using henna on my hair and the effects have been amazing! A weekly top up treatment sounds like a perfect addition to my routine :) I have Revlon's Lip Balm Stain in Honey too, it's so wearable and I love the shade. Wish Revlon did more of these in different shades of nude and pink x
