October 2012 Favourites

This favourites post is probably the biggest favourites post I have ever done. I just found myself in love with so many products this month and I couldn't pick any less! So lets get to it!


Now I am back at Uni I find that no matter how often I wash my hair, it just gets so horrible by the end of a day of commuting. That's London for you - polution. It makes my hair horrible! So I've found the Bumble and Bumble Seaweed Mild Marine Shampoo to be an absolute saviour. It really cleanses and cleans my hair after a day of commuting! I've reviewed this shampoo so if you want to find out exactly what it does, you can, here. A couple of other products which have been a saviour to me when commuting have been the Urban Decay De-Slick XL Setting Spray and the Wild About Beauty Botanical Skin Prep. Both of these are new to my makeup routine in October but both have kept the oil at bay and my makeup in place all day on long Uni day's, so they are both winners for me this month. I will be reviewing both of these shortly! In my October She Said Beauty box, we received what seemed to be a tiny sample of the b-liv Off With Those Heads serum. I thought this would only last me October, but there's actually still a bit left and I have been using it just on my nose, where it seems to be doing exactly what it says it will. So, so far, it's a winner for me in October and I will be looking in to the full size! Next up is something I reviewed this week, the Burberry Volumising Lash Enhancer in Midnight Brown. Ahhhh *melts* my perfect mascara. Literally, it has made me so happy to have finally found that perfect, holy grail mascara.

I am in love with a face oil. The Antipodes Organic Avocado and Rosehip Divine Face Oil is my skin saviour. I won't go in to it too much here as I have a review of it coming up in a few days, but this, I adore. Also from Antipodes I really love the Joyful Hand and Body Lotion. It's so beautiful and smells amazing! I'll also be reviewing this shortly. I finally took the plunge and bought a raved about, but also not raved about enough, nail polish from Models Own. Utopia  I am in love with this shade it's absolutely stunning and could quite possibly be one of my favourite shades this year. I've loved wearing it this month and even though it's a very cool shade, it may be the shade I reach for the most over Autumn. Along with the nail theme, I recently picked up the Elegant Touch Rapid Dry for Nails spray. It is amazing! It only cost a few quid so I thought it was at least worth a try and I have used it for a couple of weeks now. It literally dries my nails so quickly! Hair wise another product I've loved in October is the Moroccan Oil Treatment. It makes my hair feel so, so soft, I've really loved it. I see this bottle lasting so long as well as you need literally the tiniest amount.

Makeup wise, there have been a few things I have turned to time and time again. I am utterly in love with my first MAC quad. My first ever MAC shadows as well! And I will be sharing these in an upcoming post. I also have been utterly head over heels for my FamousX Leopard Eye-shadow Palette which I have been using most days. Lipstick wise in October MAC really stole the show for me. With MAC Rebel, MAC Deeply Adored and MAC Charmed I'm Sure. Again I'll be sharing these along with my MAC quad in an upcoming post but these are the three lipsticks I've turned to the most in October and I think they are going to continue getting a lot of use! And last but not least, my final favourite of October is a book. 'Never Stop Shutting Up" is a book by Mike Falzone, one of my favourite YouTubers. I will be reviewing this book very shortly so I won't go into too much detail but I read this in just a few hours and I loved it. It made me laugh, smile and think deeper about things. Great book by a hilarious guy!
