October Favourites 2017

Writing this post after going so long without writing anything feels a little strange. I know I’ve been a little MIA lately. I’m debating whether or not to do a post on it, as I really fell off the blogging waggon. Moving past that, I have decided to come back with one of my favourite posts to write. I really struggled to narrow it down, so enjoy this longer than usual list of my monthly favourites.

Let’s get into the October favourites!

The Body Shop | Coconut Milk Body Lotion

This might be a weird place to start considering the scent of this and the current time of year. I know Spicy scents are all the rage at this time of year, but I have been using this every other day in October. The main thing that I love about this is that it is a spray bottle. It makes it easy to use, as you don’t have the problem of applying too much, and it isn’t sticky either which can be a big problem with other body butters. The coconut smell is amazing, but it is quite strong when you’re applying it. Once it’s on, it is much weaker as it absorbs so quickly. It costs £8.50 and I already want to stock up.

NYX | HD Photogenic Concealer Wand

Concealer is one thing I don’t tend to branch out in, but after hearing so many good things about this one, I had to give it a go, and it has not disappointed. I got the shade Porcelain. Which I am pretty sure is the palest shade. It is great for those of us with really pale skin. I use this to highlight under my eyes, and I set it with a powder afterwards. This concealer lasts all day and it doesn’t crease. If you’re after a new budget friendly concealer this is definitely one to look into.

ColourPop | Super Shock Highlighter Spoon

I have been reaching for this highlighter quite a lot recently, and I included it in my Five Favourite Affordable Highlighters post. The colour is a light champagne that is extremely glittery. It is a strange highlight though, as I find it doesn’t really work on its own, but if you press a little over the top of another, then you get a really nice glow that is perfect for nights out and events.

MAC | Extra Dimension Skin Finish Beaming Blush

This has been a recent favourite, as I wanted to get out of the habit of reaching for the Soph x Revolution highlighter palette everyday. I started reaching for this one more, and I really love it. Beaming Blush is a pink gold which is really beautiful, as someone who loves a gold highlight, but has a love for the colour pink it is perfect. This is also the highlight I wear when I want to put the ColourPop one over the top and they go really well together.

MAC | Amber Lights Eyeshadow

Ever since Autumn began I have been loving wearing this colour all over the lid. It lasts all day, but it is a little pricey for a single shadow, as it does cost £13.50. It is described, as a peachy brown with shimmer, but it is more of a copper gold.

Get More | Vitamin B Still Apple and Raspberry

Something a little different for the last thing. I was recently sent a selection of drinks and chewing gum from Get More and I couldn’t be more grateful, as I have loved it all, but I really love this Apple and Raspberry flavour. I took it with me when I went to the theatre. Mainly because it seemed like the cheaper and healthier option and I’m so glad I did.

As it is infused with B Vitamins it’s also great for tackling tiredness and boosting your metabolism. Which are two things I really need help with. The drinks are only £1.45 each too, so I am on my way to the shop to stock up.

MAC Faux Lipsticks and Soar Lip Liner

Faux is my all time favourite MAC lipstick and I have been loving pairing it with the Soar lip liner. The colours are extremely similar and the added lasting power of the liner is appreciated. This is such a gorgeous everyday combination. Faux is a muted mauve pink and Soar is a mid tone pink brown, so they compliment each other perfectly.

Kat Von D Lolita Liquid Lipstick

I am pretty sure I have talked about this before, but this has been a go to recently. If I was going anywhere that needed a lipstick that would not budge then this is the winner. It lasts through eating and drinking, and it stays in place. It is also a really pretty colour for this time of year, as it is a warm plum.

Maltesers Teasers

I’m pretty sure these are the best from Celebrations. You can imagine the excitement when my mum came home with a box filled solely of them. There’s not a lot to say about these, but my god they are delicious. I think you can get them from Tesco. If you’re a Maltesers fan then it is definitely worth a look.

Those are all of my October favourites!

What have you been loving?

Thank you for reading

    I really like these kind of posts! I’m always looking for new concealers to try to I will definitely check out that Nyx one xxx

  6. Jenny says:

    The Body Shop body milk sounds lovely! I do wish more body products would come in a spray bottle as it’s much easier to apply, especially on the back. Coconut is one of my favorite scents and I can see myself using it all year long!

      It’s really great and the spray bottle definitely makes it really handy, it’s shame they don’t do it in more scents too, even though the coconut one is really good. I hope you love it xx

  7. Heidi says:

    I have never heard of Teasers! Is it chocolate? And The Body Shop body milk. I agree with everything. Even if it’s not a fall or winter scent, that is still one of the best from The Body Shop.

    The MAC Amber Lights eyeshadow looks stunning, as well as Lolita by KVD! The Coconut range from the Body Shop is one I fell in love with when I was very kindly gifted a set for my birthday. I definitely need to pick up more. Have you smelt the Christmas special scents? They smell divine! x I love these favourites posts. xx Nikita

    I feel like I’m the only person in the blogging community who does not own the Lolita shade from Kat Von D! It’s such a beautiful color, and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it. I guess maybe it’s time to get an early christmas gift for myself, aha! Great post Hannah xxx

    • luxuryblush says:

      I hope you love it if you get around to giving it a try! The formula to Kat Von D liquid lipsticks is so good, and you can’t go wrong with the colour, it’s stunning! Thank you so much xxx

  16. Bernadette says:

    I’m a big fan of the colour pop highlighters! (of course now the powder ones) but the creams too! I usually don’t like cream/liquid highlighters. They are either too natural or just break up on the skin and mess with the foundation. But colour pop know how to do cream formula! Lovely post.


    • luxuryblush says:

      I’m glad you like them too! I haven’t tried one of the powder ones, are they good as well? I’m so with you on that, I don’t usually get along with cream either, but ColourPop have nailed their formula. Thank you so much xx

  17. Louise says:

    Another great post Hannah! I NEED the coconut lotion you’ve sold it to me! I love coconut scents all year round. I love the look of the mac eyeshadow- I only have 2 little pots from MAC. Everyone loves a malteaser haha! Hope you have a good November xx


    • luxuryblush says:

      Thank you so much! It’s amazing, the spray bottle really makes it. Amber Lights is really pretty for this time of year, and I don’t have many MAC shadows either. Got to love a Malteser haha! Thank you and you too!xx

  18. Marina Rosie says:
