October Favourites

October favourites

I’ve been loving all sorts of Autumnal goodness this month, big surprise right?  A few new additions, a few old and definitely new Instagram loves.  Let’s just jump right in!

Beauty Favourites

I recently got the NYX Pore Filler primer* at the Olympia Beauty Awards and of course, had to start using it.  I’ve been loving it!  I have very large pores, so this is great for helping to smooth out the surface, aiding the application of most of my foundations.  I do have issue the odd time with the foundation I put over the top, but it works with most foundations.  A much loved blush is the elf Studio blush in Berry Merry. This is an Autumn classic and a must, plus it seems to be on offer at the minute online, perfect excuse to pick it up!  A bit of a random one, but I’ve been thoroughly enjoying adding purple mascara to the ends of my lashes recently.  I’ve been using the NYX Colour Mascara in Purple/Violet*, I picked this up on a complete whim and I’m so glad I did.


On to lips!  I’ve been wearing the Urban Decay Glide on Lip Pencil* in Venom with a few of the lipsticks in this post as well as by itself.  It goes on really nicely and helps everything stay put.  Wonderful berry shade.   I’ve been putting Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick in Vivid Violet or the Rimmel classic matte lipstick 107 *.  Both are excellent berry shades, Vivid Violet leans more plummy and the 107 is the redder berry.  Both apply well and are comfortable on the lips all day.  Both will need touch ups, as you’d expect with most lipsticks!  The last lip product is one I raved about in my Smashbox Lipstick Review, it’s the Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bawse.  It rocks my socks completely.  Applies well, stays put all day, no touch ups needed at all, stunning colour!  My kind of lip product!

Lifestyle Favourite

I’ve just the one life favourite to share with you today!  This excellent Sugar skull glass mason mug from Asda, it’s only a pound!  If you see one, get it.  It’s the perfect size for a cuppa and it is very cool.  One I will be using all year round!

Online Favourites

This time it’s all about the Instagrammers.  You may have noticed a gradual shift in my Instagram feed.  I’ve just wanted more colour and inspiration and I can get it in buckets!  These are only a tiny handful of some of the more vibrant Instagrammers I’ve been enjoying.  First up is The Uncommon Place, Katie is a creator and her feed reflects that.  Lots of colourful flair with a touch of life.  Next we have Hot Pink Pineapples, Cyn shares her magically colourful world, it makes me smile every time.  Lastly is A Whimsy Wonderland, this is run by a pair of lifestyle bloggers. So much colour.  I love how the way these feeds are curated and the colour they bring.  Worth a look if you want more colour in your life.  You can always follow me on Instagram too if you fancy!
