Beauty ¦ October favourites

So October is over and it's basically Christmas. Today's it's time for my October favourites. This month I've been turning to some old favourites as I didn't buy much at the start of the month.
Starting of with the only non-beauty product in this months favourites I have the Muji Berry tart candle. This smells so beautiful, it's sweet however it isn't over powering and sickly. I've also found that it has burnt so cleanly (candles that burn unevenly are one of my pet hates) For £3.50 I didn't expect the quality and I really wished I'd picked up more scents.

I really love Revlon as a brand in general and the Primer, shadow and sparkle palette in the shade Metropolitan is no exception. The lid shade reminds me a lot of Mac patina shadow and the glitter is absolutely stunning. The shades in here are all well pigmented and blendable and have a good 6 hours wear without primer and a good 9 with primer.
Gosh's CC cream is something I can only use when I'm tanned as I have it in a pretty dark shade. Every time I wear it I absolutely love it. The formula is incredibly hydrating so it doesn't cling to any dry patches. It leaves the skin looking glowing and healthy as well as natural without compromising on coverage. On a good skin day I can easily wear this with no concealer.
I wasn't expecting much from the Ps love lip liner in 09 however I'm so impressed. It's a stunning mauvey browny pink shade which works nicely under nude lipsticks to darken them a little. It isn't a chalky liner and although it's not moisturizing it doesn't feel like it is drying my lips out either. For £1 I definitely need to go and pick up more shades.
Soap and glory thick and fast is a very different mascara for me. If you read my blog regularly you will know that I am a huge fan of Benefit They're real which offers pretty dramatic lashes. In comparison this mascara is a lot mor natural however I've been really enjoying wearing it on a day to day basis. The formula is also pretty nice and leaves the lashes nicely separated and lengthened, however just a side note it is definitely not cry proof!

Finally for my October favourites I have the Perricone MD Chia serum. This is something I would have never purchased myself as it's so god damn expensive however I have fallen in love with it. It's helped clear up the dry sin on my face and bar larger breakouts around that time of the month my spots have cleared u considerably. I've also found it's really helped combat my oily nose. A little side note despite the fact that it's expensive I've been using this bottle for about two months and I'm not even a quarter of the way down yet so a little definitely goes a long way.

  5. I love the Gosh CC Cream, the lightest shade is one of the few (maybe the only) high street shades that's actually pale enough for me! The Perricone serum sounds amazing :) xx


    1. It's so good I just hate how pricey it is! x

  6. Thanks for the recommendation about the PS liners, I'm going to have a look next time I'm in. Although when I've been in the past all I've seen are rows and rows of lipsticks :)
