October Favourites

I wasn’t actually going to upload my monthly favourites this month because it is a little repetitive of other blog posts I have uploaded this month, but I haven’t skipped one (I don’t think anyway) since I started blogging so I am going to share a few things I have been loving with you anyway.
One: Makeup Revolution Ultra 32 Eyeshadow Palette Flawless. I keep going on about this eye shadow palette but honestly I can’t get enough of it. It is so, so cheap and the colours are all pigmented. I have done loads of day and night looks with this palette so far and the choices are endless. They are cheaper eyeshadows, so you do get a bit of fall off but you are able to wipe it away easily.
Two: Mua Lipstick in Shade 2 and Shade 3. I got these in my stocking for Christmas last year (can’t wait for Christmas this year!) and I have used them so many times since but I have never mentioned them separately. But you know for a £1 lipstick they are really good. Okay, they aren’t as silky as a Mac lipstick for example, but they are bold and do the job really well. They are good if you are on a budget too.
Three: Seveteen Lip Lustre in Polished. I am not normally a lip gloss lover, like when it is windy as then your hair is prone to getting stuck into it, however this season lip gloss is making a return. I don’t own many lip glosses, but with the Seventeen Lip Lustre you can apply it on top of any lipstick of your choice and it will give it a lovely glossy shine. It isn’t too stick or thick which I find is so much better than some lip glosses out there.
Four: Mac Lipstick Velvet Teddy. This lipstick has been in many, many of my posts before and all I can say is if you don’t have it… why?! It is a gorgeous nude colour and I have repurchased it many times. The reason why I put it in my favourites though is because I have been wearing it to school an awful lot this month and I couldn’t not.
Five: Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 01 Fair and 02 Cool Medium. This is one of those products that is raved by most bloggers or youtubers. I do also love this concealer because it has the quality of a high end concealer. I tend to use the darker shade for covering blemishes and then the lighter shade for highlighting and under my eyes. It is quite thick so for some people I know they don’t apply it under their eye but I like it.
Six: Garnier BB Cream Original in Light. This month I have been finding myself reaching for this BB Cream. I don’t know what it is but I find that when I can’t really be bothered to do a full face of heavy makeup, I will apply this as it is so light on the skin and is really nourishing.
Seven: Bare Minerals Shimmer Eyeshadows in Sex Kitten, Drama, True Gold. I included these in my halloween post because I thought they would be useful for halloween makeup ideas as they were so pigmented. But I have also been using them because I have had them in my makeup collection for ages. They are like glittery loose powders so are harder to apply than normal eyeshadow but they blend out so well! I like to just sweep Drama across the whole of my lid and blend it out.
Eight: Bare Minerals Sheen Eyeshadow in Waterlily and Snowflake. This is the same as the Shimmer Eyeshadows. I got them in the same pack but Waterlily is such a gorgeous lilac colour. It is light on the eyes and really makes my green eyes pop. Snowflake is a good colour to put on the inside corner of your eyes to make them seem larger.

    Nice post! I know what you mean about not wanting a full face of make-up.
