October 2014 Beauty Favourites

Hi everyone,

I haven’t done a favourites post for quite a while now so I thought that it was high time that I got round to writing one and sharing with you the products that I have been loving this month.

First up is the Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in colour number 14 Pretty Prune. This is a bit of a different shade for me as I usually pick the girly pink colours but I have been loving the deep red shade of this lipstick for Autumn. I have been using the Avon lip brush to apply this lipstick to make sure that I get it really neat looking as the slightest mistakes show up so obviously with it being so dark.

Next is a product that I have rediscovered in my makeup stash and that is the Benefit Powderazzi palette. I don’t think this set is available anymore as it came out around Christmas a couple of years ago but the individual Box-O-Powders are all still available to buy. I have always loved Coralista and have the full sized version but it’s the Dallas powder that I have rediscovered most recently. In the past I always used it as a bronzer but didn’t think the shade quite suited me but I have been using it as a blusher throughout October and think it looks much better used this way.

This nail polish was part of a gift set from Marks and Spencer that I received last Christmas but I have recently dug it out of my collection. It’s a super girly, bubblegum pink shade and I have been wearing it with a glitter polish on an accent finger to add a bit of extra sparkle. I feel like Marks and Spencer have really upped their game in the beauty stakes recently and I have bought quite a few fab products from there in the past few months so I would definitely recommend a mooch round if you haven’t already.

I have repurchased this body wash from Marks and Spencer so many times since originally getting it as a birthday present back in January. The scent is sweet orange and petitgrain which I just love and my skin always feels lovely and hydrated after I’ve used it.

Finally another product that I have been using non-stop is the Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive Day Cream. I have quite sensitive skin and love this product as it contains no parabens, colours or fragrance and it has helped keep my skin really soft when the cold, windy weather would normally dry out my skin no end.

Some new favourites and some old discoveries this month but I have been using all these products so much throughout October. Which products have you been loving this month? I’d love to read your favourites in the comments box or leave a link to your October favourites posts :)

Thanks for reading,
