October 2013 Favorites!

October went by so slowly, I’m glad November has finally arrived. November is one of my favorite months because it means that christmas is less then two months away, yuuy!! This month I discovered a few new amazing products and also enjoyed my all-time favorites. I have been switching things up in my everyday makeup routine, which is quite weird because I tend to stick to my beloved products. Take a look at my current favorites and must-haves!

1. Benefit Porefessional

This one of those holy grail products for me. I tend to avoid this product on hot days because I feel like the less layers are on my face the better but now that it’s getting colder I have been grabbing this a lot. I apply the Porefessional on my nose and areas where I have a lot of visible pores. It also helps to keep my makeup in place the entire day, which is a must for week-days! 

2. Lush Tea Tree Toner Water

I just wrote a review about this today so I’m not going to ramble a lot about it. I have been using this a ton for the month of October, spraying it on my face in the morning and right before I go to bed.

3. I love… Strawberries & milkshake hand lotion

Hands down one of the best hand creams I have ever tried. I don’t like it when hand creams are too thick or sticky and this one is just right up my alley. It hydrates my hands and leaves them smelling like a milkshake.

4. NYC Applelicious lip balm in ‘Big Apple red’

I’m going through a tinted lip balm phase right now and this one my favorites. Again, I’m not going to ramble too much about it since I have a review about it here.

5. Lush Bubblegum lip scrub

My lips have been kind of dry lately and I have been scrubbing them more and more with my lip scrub from Lush. Not really the biggest fan of the smell but I love their consistency!

6. EOS lip balm in ‘Strawberry Sorbet’

This has been hyped in the American beauty industry for so long now and I completely understand why. It’s just a fun little twist on the regular lip balm and they smell amazing! I got mine about 2 years ago on my vacation to Florida and I have about 5 colors now. I absolutely love it! Okay maybe there are better lip products out there for really chapped lips such as vaseline but this is the one I have been grabbing the most this month.

7. Urban Decay Big Fatty mascara

I got this mascara with an order I placed on lookfantastic.com and it’s the one I have been using the entire month. I love it so much, one of the best mascaras I have tried so far. You can read all about it here.

8. MAC RiRi ♥ MAC blush in ‘Bad Girl Gone Good’

I hauled this blush from the recent MAC collection with Rihanna. It’s such a pretty bronzy shade that adds a nice sun-kissed glow to the face. You can read my review here. 

9. Real Techniques Contour brush

I have been all about highlighting my face again this month since my face isn’t as shiny due to the temperature that has dropped. This is the brush that I prefer to use with my highlighter, it’s the Contour brush from Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman.

10. Air Wick in ‘Wild Berries & Wood’

This is one of the best things I discovered this month. These candles by Air Wick smell so heavenly (I have another one that smells like apples and spice) and the best part is, I got them for only €1,72 at Action! Normally they’re around €4 I think, so that’s a real bargain if you ask me!
