Hi guys, hope you are having an awesome week so far, its almost weekend. If you missed Monday’s post go check it out here, you do not want to miss it, it’s a giveaway. Even though this is a tiny bit late I still want to post my Monthly Favorites : October 2017. Rather later than never right?
Monthly Favorites : October 2017
I love favorites posts, almost as much as empties. They both fuel my “need to want” list (it does not take much for that list to grow). I know we all have those, some as a list on our phones others (like me) a whole encyclopedia range. This month there was not a lot of favorites as my Dad visited for some time, so that makes these products extra special.
Soirée Diaries Palette by PUR Beauty
This was one of the goodies we got in last month’s Boxycharm (click here for the unboxing). I promised this palette to my sister, but it ended up being such an awesome palette that I gave her another one (that looked similar). These shadows blend sooo well and they are super pigmented. I also enjoy how the coloums match so that you can create a look with it (almost like color by number). The mirror is also a nice size and the palette is relatively easy to clean. The shadows are a bit powdery, but nothing a double tap cant fix as they are super pigmented (have I mentioned that before?)
Britney Spears VIP Show
This was graciously sent to me and I am so glad, cause I would not have picked this up myself. This perfume is sooooo amazing, I have done a full review here where I have raved about it. The notes are fruity, floral and end with some earthiness. You can see how much I have been loving this scent since its almost halfway. This is a perfect scent for anytime of the year and I have received so many compliments when wearing this, it makes it smell even better.
Elizabeth Arden Lip Gelato in Plum Perfect
I have done a full review here if you want to check it out. This lippie became a favorite from the moment I first used it. Its creamy, hydrating and comfortable on the lips. I have made quite a dent in this lipstick already as its always either in my handbag or on my desk at the office. Although it does not last super long on the lips, I do not mind as it compensate by being very comfy. The color is that perfect “your lips, but better” shade. The color is much more subtle than in the tube, so do not be alarmed. Im Loving these at the moment!
I will most definitely buy the full size one day!! The mask is metallic silver and it dries down so that you can peel it off. What I love most is that it comes off in one piece, not bit by bit like other masks I have tried in the past. My skin felt so soft and smooth after using this mask, the only downside so far is that I only have the travel size.
Sigma Tapered Blending E40 Brush
This is almost the only blending brush I used this month. It just big enough to throw a color in the crease or to pack on shadow all over the lid. As I was on leave with my Dad, I did not do a whole lot of effort with my makeup and this brush came in very handy. Its one of those brushes that will always be dirty as it is always in use. I ordered my set from Turquoise Studio and the service was excellent (it would seem like they are closing down, so if these brushes are on your wishlist I would suggest you check them out).
These were my favorites for the month of October, what got you all excited? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
