Thank goodness October is done!
You know when you’re really looking forward to something so it feels like time is going slower? That’s what October was for me. Between work and sickness, it was a rough one. But now I’m on my holiday, so it’s all good in the end! In any case, there were a few things that I used pretty much all the time this month. So let’s just jump straight into my five faves!
DOSE OF COLORS LIP GLOSS in OVER THE TOP – $17.00US
This year has really been killing it with the lip gloss releases. But oh my God, the Dose of Colors lip gloss in Over The Top has completely blown me away! This was part of the Desi X Katy collab with Dose of Colors from last year and when I heard that they were bringing it back with this year’s collab, I knew I had to buy it. And I’m so glad I did. The texture is so smooth and glossy, without being too sticky. And it’s loaded with gold glitter which makes your lips look amazing! It’s still available on the Dose of Colors website. So if you have been thinking about getting it, you need it in your life!
REVLON KISS PLUMPING LIP CREME in ALMOND SUEDE – $19.95
If I haven’t been wearing Over The Top on my lips this month, I was probably wearing this. And this is such a gorgeous formula. It does have that plumping tingle, but it isn’t crazy intense. And if you don’t like minty smelling glosses, you’re in luck because this smells like chocolate! I’ve since bought two more of these and I’ll probably be buying more.
MAYBELLINE DREAM CUSHION FOUNDATION – $26.95
I probably won’t spend too much time here (this featured in my Spotlight on Maybelline post), but this foundation is pretty much all I used this month. It’s great for fresh faced makeup looks because it applies so easily and it feels so lightweight on the skin.
NIVEA DAILY ESSENTIAL 1 MINUTE URBAN DETOX PURIFY MASK – $9.95
I actually love doing 1 minute masks first thing in the morning, especially on days when I’m wearing makeup. And the Urban Detox Purify mask has been my secret weapon this month. I pop it on, leave it for 1 minute, and gently wash it off, really working the fine exfoliants over my skin. It makes such a difference in my makeup application and my overall appearance of my skin.
BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO in WILD – $9.99
As I previously mentioned, I was down and out with a cold for a good chunk of October. And I swear, dry shampoo was the only reason my hair looked good at all. My preferred way to use this is right before bed and letting it really soak into my hair overnight. The next morning, my hair is smooth, sleek and oil free. Wild is also my favourite scent so if you haven’t used this one yet, obviously, I highly recommend it!
And those are my Five Faves for October! As always, let me know your favourites for October were down below. And I hope that November is a better month!
Cheers and love
