October Favourites!

Better late than never :) I've been so busy with work which is why this is so late, sorry!

Where i live it is summer and extremely hot, has been getting up to 40degrees Celsius (about 104degrees Fahrenheit). Melting weather. So makeup has been a pain to wear because it melts off your face.

My first favourite (non-makeup) is my Halloween decorations.


I got the plate and the bowl from Tokyo Disneyland last year when i went over for a holiday. Disneyland really is the happiest place on earth. unfortunately you won't be able to get these anymore but i loved them throughout October, they added the Halloween spirit to my room without having too much. I used the plate to leave my rings on and the bowl for my makeup brushes.

My next favourite is the Rimmel London i love fruities lasting finish nail polish (what a mouthful). I'm in love with the colour for summer and when i got it i didn't even realise that it was scented. i prepped and painted my nails and when it dried i could smell something, that's right the '053 Apricot Punch' nail polish smells like apricot. I will definitely be going to buy more of these, not only for the amazing scent they give but the consistency is gorgeous, i find i could live with one coat but its second nature to do 2 so i do, it looks flawless on the nails.
(sorry theres no photo of the colour on the nails, i have a different colour on for work)

Ah, Soap and Glory Hand Food, the summer hand savior. This is a much raved about product and I'm in love with it. It is one of the best hand moisturizers that i have ever used. It lives in my hand bag because it is so delicious, it's honestly like a convenient treatment for your hands. It's a non greasy, Shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow smelling hand cream for all ages and skin types. If you can get your hands on this products, it is definitely worth it. (I purchased this from Mecca cosmetica for about $9.95 AUD)

 The next three favourites are my only cosmetics for the month of October, it has just been far too hot for anything. 

Rimmel London soft kohl kajal eye liner pencil in 061 jet black. I use this just to line my upper lash line. Lining only your upper lash line gives the appearance of larger eyes. It's easy to get a thin or thick line and the creamy consistency is fantastic for smudging, so it suits those smokey eye looks.

 Another essential, Revlon's grow luscious by fabulash mascara in Blackest black. I got this product in a free pack when i spent a certain amount on Revlon products in my local David Jones store. This mascara claims to help your lashes grow and i don't know if its worked or if its in my head but i've noticed a difference in the length of my lashes. this mascara leaves my lashes super black, lengthened, and thick. I apply two coats and find that i get amazing results.

When i was on holiday in Melbourne, i went shopping and stopped in at the Illamasqua counter. The guy working there was the sweetest guy ever and we talked for about an hour, so helpful and recommended the most amazing products (which i wanted to buy all of them). Unfortunately as it was one of my last stops i only got two pure pigments, in ORE which is is a rust brown colour and i use it to contour my eyes and on the outer part of my lower lash line. The second colour is is FURORE, a champagne peach shimmer colour which is gorgeous as an all over lid colour, highlight and inner corner colour.

Those are my favourites for the month of October.
