October 2016 favourites feat. Soap and Glory, No 7, Anastacia, Urban Decay, Mac and Colourpop Cosmetics.


Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing well. I thought today I would talk about some products that I have been loving over the past month. First up are two lip products that have worked so well together I've hardly used anything else. They are the Anastasia lip gloss in "Vintage" and the Colour Pop lip liner in "Frick n Frack"

They are so nice and smooth to apply, the lip gloss has a little bit of sheen to it and is extremely comfortable to wear. The lip gloss is just a little darker than my normal lip colour and so looks quite natural. The gloss is creeping up to be one of my favourite glosses of the year!

Another favourite is the body butter from Soap and Glory " The Righteous Butter". It contains softening shea butter and aloe vera in it.

This is so good and smells so delicious and is perfect for autumn and winter. You can see that I have nearly finished the whole tub. Its so luxurious and velvety in formula but feels silky on the skin once you get it worked in. I don't feel that this leaves me at all greasy, sometimes other body butters leave my skin feeling greasy but this one does not.

I just got this Urban Decay eye primer in the summer about August time and I have been using it almost everyday, I would say 4 or 5 times every week. There seems to be a lot of product in there, 10ml to be exact, just a point of reference if you wanted to compare it to other eye primers.
It is such a pretty shade, it has this nice kind of pink undertone to it. There is a swatch of it on my hand. It does have enough pigmentation to it to fully block out any veining or discolouration on my eyelids so I have really been enjoying it. I can put a deeper colored base throughout the crease area and then go back in with Minor Sin all over the lid and it looks really pretty and holds eyeshadow all day. I'm really happy I tried this. I've only used the original primer potion before which is similar but this has more colour.

Something else I have gone back to recently is Mac's BlackTrack fluidline.

I have been having problems getting my eyeliner to stay so I went back to this and it has definitely helped. I can take my time with this and it is definitely more foolproof than the other eyeliners I have tried. This has been a saving grace lately. It is a matte black and it wears all day for me , it doesn't flake or anything and is a pretty deep black in my opinion.

My last favourite of the month has been the No7 pressed powder in fair.


It is an extremely smooth powder to apply, like when you touch it, it just feels like silk on your fingertips. It's very fine and I use it all over my face to set my makeup as a finishing powder. I tend to always use it with the Charlotte Tilbury Powder and Sculpt brush and it sets my under eye concealer really well. It doesn't break down, and does not cling onto any dry patches. You get 10g of powder and so this will last me ages. It doesn't do that crepey creasey thing unless I put too much on. I have a very hard time with powders under my eyes having them set the right way.

Those were my October favourites, i hope you enjoyed finding out what I have bern loving over the past month. In the comments below let me know what things you have been loving.

Speak to you all soon
