To be honest, I almost forgot about this post! There has been a lot going on in my life in terms of change and I’ve just been a bundle of rattling nerves the last week. Blogging has helped though because with every sentence and/or comment that I end with an exclamation mark, I feel a little bit better! I don’t have much in the way of favourites for October although I should just mention that the MaskerAide masks were a definite favourite!
Jordana- Quick Shine Topcoat
This was a dollar store discovery and I am totally amazed! I started using it during the 31 Day Nail Challenge in order to get me to bed sooner and it seriously works! I mean, it’s not 60 seconds, but it WAS faster than my current favourite topcoat, Out The Door by inm. It also left my nails very shiny.
China Glaze- Fairy Dust
The number of times I used this polish during the 31 Day Nail Challenge is ridiculous! This is one of the nicest glitters if you’re looking for just a little hint of iridescent sparkle to brighten up your manicure. It doesn’t overpower your design and photographs well. This is a must-have in any nail polish lover’s collection. Life wasn’t the same once I started using this baby…
skoah – Dewlux Face Kream
I’ve talked about this brand before, it’s a local skin care company with beginnings right out of Vancouver! Along with a skin care line that actually works for my skin, they offer the most amazing facials which I treat myself to every 7 weeks. I picked up Dewlux last month at my most recent facial because my skin was so dry even with my regular moisturizer so I wanted to get something a little bit thicker and more saturating. A little goes a long way with this moisturizer and the cherry on top? It smells like fresh melon :)
Urban Decay – Naked 2
I don’t think I need to talk about this anymore as the beauty blogosphere is literally saturated with Naked palette posts! We all know why we love it/should love it and I’ve been reaching for it almost every day. I especially love the shade “Snakebite”.
Ellis Faas Lip Color in L109
I received this in my August BB5 Box and initially believed it to be too light for me, but when I pair it off with a more pink-toned lip gloss, the combination gives my lips a beautiful neutral shine.
Naked Princess in Barely Nude
After receiving a teeny tiny sample in my August Glymm Bag and really liked it so I actually went and bought the full size! I think a lot of us liked this product that month for the scent and consistency. It’s not a very sticky gloss and because of that, it doesn’t last very long on the lips so be prepared to reach for it all the time!
And that’s October everyone!
