Writing this post after going so long without writing anything feels a little strange, and I know I’ve been a little MIA lately, and I’m debating whether or not to do a post on the whole thing, as I really fell off the blogging waggon. I am back with one of my favourite posts to write and that is a Monthly Favourites, and I really struggled to narrow it down, so enjoy this longer than usual list of my monthly 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, and the coconuts get left in Summer, 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. It smells incredible and the scent is quite strong when you’re applying it, but 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, so it is great for those of us with really pale skin and it works amazingly as a highlighter too. I use this to highlight under my eyes, and I set it with a powder afterwards too. I have had no problems with this, as it hasn’t creased and it always lasts all day. 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, and because it is a golden copper it goes great with blue eyes. 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, as it seemed like the cheaper and healthier option and I’m so glad I did, but it was all gone by the time the first half ended, as it tastes really good. 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, as 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, as even through eating and drinking it stays in place. It is also a really pretty colour for this time of year, as it is a warm plum.
I’m pretty sure we all love the Teasers the best from Celebrations, so 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 and I think you can get the box from Tesco, so if you’re a Maltesers fan then it is definitely worth a look.
That is everything I have been loving throughout October!
