It’s almost December so I’m seriously late with this post, but it was kind of interesting to do a review of last months favourites so late in the day. October was a bit of a ‘meh’ month for beauty (for me anyway) but November couldn’t have been more different with the lead-up to all the exciting Christmas releases and the first previews of the new season trends and products.
For this post, I went over my October posts and found the products that I was definitely loving at the time. If I’m honest, I’m still loving them now which heavily influenced my choices, but this is still an October list….the November list will be along shortly and will of course have a whole new set of products!
I’m still loving this and using it every other wash as it’s such a lovely product to use that has really done well at keeping my colour in good nick; I’ve had my colour for quite some time now and I still don’t think I need to get it redone, although that’s partly thanks to the skill of Billy at The Chapel. It’s safe to say that this is the one mask I’ll keep using as it’s incredibly nourishing, yet doesn’t turn my fine hair lank. Check out my review of the full range here.
There is something oh so sexy about having really vampy nails, and in my humble opinion there is no easier way to achieve these than with Nails Inc Victoria; at the SS13 event last week I was so close to requesting this under one of the textures, or just having a texture as an accent nail, but I thought it would be better if I got one of the new textures so my readers could have a good nose at them. This is a hero shade and with good reason, check out my review and pictures here.
Turns out absolutely everyone uses this and I was rather late to the party. I reviewed this so you can read more about it in the review here, but it’s such a fantastic file that I can’t see myself ever cheating with another brand of file. I was so impressed with this file that I picked up a Leighton Denny Kit on one of my recent trips to Boots, and I’m happy to report that it’s fantastic and I’ll definitely be reviewing it soon.
This is a lipstick that has travelled through three different handbags with me; by that I mean, when I change my handbag, I always use it as a chance to add new lip colours to play around with but this is an absolute essential colour for me as it’s such a flattering and wearable nude. Have a look at my post about the rest of the new shades here if you fancy seeing this shade on the lips.
I’ve actually only just started using something else (Pixi Early Bird Palette) as a blush, but as this is a post about the October favourites I thought it’d be a good idea to mention this as it definitely got a lot of use and abuse in October. It’s pretty, easy to wear and even easier to use; it blends well with my pale complexion and isn’t too in your face. If you haven’t had a chance to check out NYX then I strongly recommend you do as their colour range is astoundingly good. My review of this and two other shades can be found here.
That’s all of October covered! I can’t wait to write up November as there were so many great products to work through; it’s going to be great fun narrowing it down and working out my favourites.
