October 2013 Beauty Favourites

When the first trailer for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here starts to appear I know the festive season is upon us and October has definitely come to an end. This month I've tried quite a few new products and I can't wait to share them with you there's definitely a few stand outs, so lets get started.

This little baby will be getting its own special post pretty soon, so I won't say too much, but I can definitely say it lives up to the hype! Expensive it may be but my skin looks so fresh when I use this powder.

Highlighter is always a step I make sure to add into my make up routine. I have no idea why, it just makes me feel more "done". Anywho this little baby came free in last months Space NK Goodie Bag (link) and it's absolutely stunning patted down the cheekbones. It's more golden toned than I usually go for but it's been my go-to shade all month.

Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream
 I bought this leave-in conditioner a while ago, but I only started using it this month, oh where have you been all my life? This cream leaves my hair so soft without weighing it down. My hair never feels this light and I have a lot of hair! I think it's definitely got something to do with the "whipped" cream aspect. It also makes your hair smell divine, like strawberry's and cream, it lingers too which is always nice. I'm definitely interested in trying more from them now, let me know if you have any recommendations.

Benefit Hervana Blush
What with me wearing quite statement lipsticks this month I needed a blush that would compliment them without looking too over the top. Swirled together this blush creates a gorgeous, rosy, mauve shade with a coral undertones, that I think would work well with most lip/eye combinations. Such a pretty change for me as the majority of my blushes are all cool toned pinks.

Mac Rebel Lipstick
This lipstick is probably no surprise, Rebel is the only lip product I've worn this month. It's the prefect visual representation of "Autumn" such a beautiful cool-toned berry shade that you can wear as a wash or really build up the colour. The lasting power is outstanding too. 

Pureology Hydrate Conditioner
I'm normally pretty fickle with hair products and rotate them every week, but this conditioner has seriously not been out of my shower. First of all it smells like polo mints, which that alone is a thumbs up from me, but it leaves my hair so soft, you can actually feel the difference while you are rinsing it out.

Let me know what your stand out products were this month? Have you tried any of the things I've mentioned?

    1. Thank you, it's so lovely, though I do wish I would have waited and got the limited edition palette instead, I don't think I could justify both haha :)
