The October Favourites...

I really have no idea where this year has gone, once again another month has just flown past without barely a blink and it's pretty safe to say we are well on our way into winter (though today was quite lovely considering the time of year) and dare I say the season of festivities, novelty pyjamas and glitter, lots of glitter! But, before I wind up turning into an actual walking decoration fit for the tree with my 'all things shiny and shimmery' obsession I thought I would take a little time out to share with you all a little round up of the items that have kept me coming back for more this month. 

The Malin+Goetz Lip Moisturiser - This stuff has pretty much been my lifesaver this month, it is a tad on the pricier side at £10 from Space NK but for a little evening/before bed indulgence I think it's worth it. It's a very thick clear jelly-like formula that looks very gloopy but don't let it put you off, you do need quite the drop for your lips compared to the usual Carmex and Vaseline but once you work it into your lips it feels so lightweight and instantly soothing. 

The MAC Velvet Teddy - So, I finally joined the rest of the world and bought Velvet Teddy. I've wanted this lipstick for ages but just never really knew how to work the more beige/tan/brown lip but with work I felt I needed something a bit more subtle than a berry/pink lip so I took the plunge and well I haven't turned back. I feel I don't really need to go into one with this one but just in case, it's a beautiful soft tan/brown coral'ly matte nude that is perfect as a step away from all the berry toned autumnal lips offering a very autumn leaves inspired look.

The Essie Cozy in Cashmere Matte - I've spoken about these before but words don't even come close to how much I am loving these shades and formulas and their names! Cozy in Cashmere is by far my favourite to wear with its soft lilac iridescence amongst the taupe undertones.

The Shu Umemura Lash Curler - I don't really have much to say on these lash curlers as I feel every blogger and their dog has them but my one word is perfection! I used to think Lash Curlers were a bit of a gimmick and at £20 I thought it was quite the price tag but after all the raves about them my arm was finally twisted and I can safely say I love them, they just make and hold a curl perfectly!

The Bourjois Plum Plum Girl - A slight contradiction to the Velvet Teddy above but I have to say I am still partial to a traditional autumn berry lip. This month Bourjois released some new additions to it's counters and one came in the form of Plum Plum Girl which just spoke to me! It's part of the Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick line, it's a Plum/Berry colour and it's Bourjois, what more can a girl ask for? 

And that's all I have to share... what beauty bits have you been loving this month? Let me know!

Oh, and Happy Halloween!
