October Favorites

It's that time of the month! Yep, you guessed it (or did you?)... Monthly favorites! October has been a hectic month since I had my GCSEs and had a lot of studying to do, which is what took up most of the month for me. But luckily, after I was done with those, I had a couple of days to enjoy the rest of the month freely! And let me tell you, catching up on my favorite TV Shows has been so much fun! I started watching House of Cards the other day, still just 3 episodes in, but so far so good! Honestly, TV shows are life.

Alright now let's get to the point of this post! Here are some of the things I loved this month:


---


This Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water has been a go-to this past month. It's just such an easy way to get rid of your makeup, especially eye makeup, before using your facial cleanser to properly clean your face. I heard that this is a dupe from the infamous Bioderma makeup removing thing.. (No idea what it's called to be honest). I personally haven't tried the one by Bioderma so I can't give my personal opinion about it, but this Garnier one definitely does get the job done! 


Next up, the Wet n Wild eye shadow trio in Silent Treatment. I love this because it's so easy to use, since there are only three shades and each one is labelled 'Brow bone', 'Crease' and 'Eyelid' so you can't go wrong with it. It's also suitable for traveling, so if you're in a rush just pop it in your makeup bag with some eye brushes and you can get your eye makeup sorted on the way. Wet n Wild eye shadow trios are pretty good in general. Love 'em.


I can't tell you how much I love this MAC lipstick in the shade Twig. It's such a pretty color. It has a satin finish and goes perfectly with every makeup look/outfit I happen to choose, so whenever I have no idea what lipstick to go for, I pick this one! 


Another lip product I've been loving, not only this month, but for as long as I've started using it, is this Essence lipliner in the shade 12 Wish Me a Rose. It's this lovely nude-y soft pink kind of color, it's gorgeous! Essence lipliners are creamy and really easy to apply, and they have some of the most beautiful shades! And they're so affordable, I definitely recommend you try them out, you just can't go wrong with these.


I wrote about this Bourjois eyebrow pencil in the shade 07 Noisette in my last post, which was a 5-Minute Makeup Look. It gives a nice natural look to the eyebrows and it's the perfect shade for my hairs, I just love it!


Lastly, this is one of my favorite perfumes! It's the Alien perfume by Thierry Mugler, which was a birthday gift to me by my amazing best friend. I've had my eyes on it for so long since it was listed as one of the best long-lasting perfume, which is true, it's the perfect blend between amber, woods and vanilla. So good.

I also wanted to add a favorite song of mine for this month, which I have to say is The Beach by The Neighbourhood, one of my favorite bands of all-time. Honestly I won't talk about this song too much, but I just genuinely love it. And I listen to a lot, and I mean a lot, of songs, so to pick one out of all these great tunes, is saying something!

So that's it, folks! I hope you enjoyed this post. Have you tried any of these products? What are some of your October favorites? Let me know in the comments. Oh, and don't forget to follow the blog to stay tuned for future posts! Thanks for reading x

  21. Lovely post. It’s always interesting to see what other people love in the beauty department. I’ve seen quite a lot of people saying great things about the water. I want to try it but I have terribly sensitive skin. It seems likes it’s quite a good product though!

    1. Haha I love how you referred to it as a drug of choice! Everyone I know loves TWD but I watched the first episode and just didn't get into it. I'll binge watch House of Cards until I'm up-to-date and then we'll see where the addiction takes us from there :)
