October Favourites

Saturday, November 1, 2014

I say this literally every month, but can you believe that October is over already? Christmas is literally around the corner ahhhh I cannot wait! As I'm writing this I am actually about to get ready to go and see a Christmas light switch on, how mad is that?! This month I have been getting into the 'fall' mood and I think that definitely shows through the products I have been loving, prepare yourself for splashes of tartan, deep coloured lips and the essence of pumpkin! 

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub - First off can we just talk about the smell of this?! I must admit the smell of candy floss alongside the taste of bubblegum definitely won me over! You just apply this to your lips before applying a coat of lip balm, I tend to do this at night as you don't really one sugary coats of lipstick on your lips during the day! The product removes any dry skin cells and leaves your lips feeling silky smooth, an absolute must for me during the colder months!

Naked 2 Basics - This palette has honestly become part of my daily routine I love it that much. I just think the colours are stunning and if you've been reading my recent posts then you'll know that I can't get enough of 'Skimp and 'Stark'. I have a review comparing this palette to the original palette if you would like to check that out then you can here.

MUA Lipstick in 'Raven' - I have heard a lot of good reviews about the MUA lipsticks and I have honestly never tried anything from their range before. But for some reason I just really wanted to try out a black lipstick, I guess the whole Halloween craze of the month drawn me towards it and I actually really like it. It's daring but different. For a £1 you cannot go wrong, it is a little bit smudgy but has amazing pigmentation and is surprisingly long lasting actually!

Topshop Lip Bullet in 'Wine Gum' - I've actually mentioned this in a couple of my recent posts, I just feel that dark lip colours are perfect for this time of year. I know everybody is always in love with a timeless, classic red lipstick but I like to be a little experimental as we move into the A/W months. The lipstick is a lovely, deep purple colour with amazing pigmentation and staying power. Quite like the MUA lipstick it can smudge if you aren't careful but can't most lipsticks?!

Tartan Scarves - I think literally anything tartan is just absolutely perfect for this time of the year but you can simply never go wrong with a scarf! I just love the feeling of how it's now acceptable to leave the house feeling really cosy and a scarf is just the best and most easiest way to slowly ease yourself into the cosiest time of the year; winter! Mine was actually a birthday present given to me last year but you can buy these pretty much anywhere!

Topshop Brogues - My love for these shoes is actually ridiculous. I've worn them pretty much everyday since I bought them, you will have seen them in pretty much every outfit post I have uploaded lately. I think they're so classy looking yet so simple and because they're plain black they go with everything! They are also a really good dupe for the Doc Marten shoes because I don't know about you but I'd much rather pay £48 for a pair of shoes than about £100!! These are super comfy too, so if you're in a Topshop anytime soon I definitely recommend you try them out!

Pumpkin Spice Candle - Unfortunately there's no brand for this candle, my mum seen it when she was out and about shopping but it literally smells like a Starbucks PSL. I'm not even kidding, for a fairly cheap candle the smell of this is so strong, quite like the Yankee Candles. Before I had even lit this candle I had the occasional whiff of it now and then just from being sat in my room. If you didn't already know I am a lover of pretty much anything pumpkin! Pumpkin cake, PSL, glazed pumpkin seeds, pumpkin scented candles.. seriously just everything! So this month has been a fairly pleasant one for me I must say!

So that has been everything that I have been loving throughout the month of October. Have you liked anything I have? Have you tried out a new beauty product this month? Recommend them to me in the comments below! I hope you liked this post and had a great Halloween yesterday! What did you all dress up as?!

Until next time..
