Phew! I am kind of relieved that October is over, it’s been an insane month but I am finally back in the blogging headspace and kicking it off with October favourites as what is simpler than talking about the products you have been loving. If you want to know what has been going on in the past month or so, or the reasons for my absence why not check out my life update post over here. So let’s get into what I have been loving throughout October.
Makeup wipes always seem to be a hotly contested item on the blogosphere of whether you should use them or not, it’s true they cannot replace a proper skincare routine but they definitely do the trick if you need a quick fix. I’ve been loving the Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Wipes recently, in fact a friend turned me onto them and I don’t know why I’ve never tried them before. The wipes themselves a well-made, thick and soft and retain plenty of micellar water meaning they feel wet and easily remove makeup. I love using these as soon as I get in just to freshen up my face and remove my makeup so it’s less effort later and my skin can breathe.
As the weather gets colder, my skin starts to dry out and requires a little more TLC with drastic temperature changes from the chilly outside to heated offices and houses. For that I’ve been loving The Crème Shop Sheet masks, you may remember by obsession with the penguin one back in August which you can find my review for here, I’ve been trying several of the and I love the racoon one too. They are some of the best sheet masks I’ve ever used and they are super fun too.
This month I’m on the simple eyeshadow and eyeliner band wagon, favouring to stay in my warm bed just a few minutes longer in the mornings. So, my go to eyeshadow has become Catrice Absolute Eye Colour 1010 Vin-Touch of Rose. I got this as a sample we received at work, and it’s such a creamy everyday eyeshadow colour. Just a little bit on the lid provides a neutral base but a little bit of definition to the eye perfect for when you want to keep it simple. With a simple eye I’ve been trying to push the boundaries with my lips as part of my confidence building, I wrote a whole post about it here back in September. So September was all about everyday nude lips while October was more about true lipstick although nothing out there simply wearing BareMinerals Marvellous Moxie Lipstick in Be a Star, made me that bit more confident to think about doing more with my lipstick. Its such a great everyday colour and its small size makes it an obvious choice for touch ups ect.
Finally I’ve been loving the Etude House Missing U Hand Cream #3 This is “Panda Story”, this super hand cream fits perfectly in my bag it’s so cute as well as been a super hydrating hand cream. I cannot get over how cute this is, can you?
So what have you guys been loving in October, let me know in the comments below.
