October is my favorite month simply because there's good sales, it's my birthday and Halloween and although I'm not really celebrating Halloween this year I am excited to see the people dressed up that come into my work.
Here is my monthly favorites, this month I haven't included two of the skincare items because I have written a full post about the two, I will leave a link at the end of this post for you to see.
There are some swatches below.
Mac Eyeshadows in Patina and Sumptuous Olive - I have been loving these two together and I've used them for the whole month since I got them. They compliment each other perfectly I've been wearing Patina all over the lid then using Olive in the outer v to create a more cat eye look with my eye liner.
Smash Box Full Exposure Mascara - I will be purchasing the full size of this probably in november, this is the only mascara which I've generally LOVED and gone back to time and time again. I have naturally curled lashed but this creates beautiful volume. £18 full size, mine is sample size.
Essies Fiji: This is a beautiful colour, even though its more of a summer product I still love to wear this during the fall months because it is a nude but it's just more of a pinky nude. Best with two coats, one coat is not opaque.
Smashbox Photo Finish Eyelid Primer: This is really nice because its a skin colour which means it cancels out any veins or colour that you have on your lids, although it can be too dark if your pale, I have to use a tan shadow afterwards because its too dark for me. Mine is sample size, full size is £15
Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks: I got four of these in a small kit just to check them out and see if they were nice and quick to use before work, they are really nice and easy to use although with these I won't purchase the full size and just try and get the kits because individually they are expensive but so worth it! £28 for all four, around £20 for one full size.
YSL Sheer Candy Lipstick shade 10: This is my only YSL lipstick and I love it, it's a beautiful peachy pink shade, very sheer with some slight glitter it's just great if you're in a rush, need a bit of colour and want something hydrating. This stays in my makeup bag at all times so, it's a sign that it's great.
