October Favourites

Hello Lovelies! Today I'm feeling so sad that October is over. Nothing exciting happens in November... I want Christmas now haha! Today I'm going to be showing you all my favourite beauty products from the month of October.

Barry M Hi-Shine Gelly Nail Polish in Chilli | £3.99
First up is one of the Hi-Shine Gelly nail polishes from Barry M. I'm always saying how much I love these and I'm SO obsessed with the new autumnal shades I picked up recently. My favourite is definitely 'Chilli' It's a really gorgeous deep, browny red shade. And I've had it on my nails pretty much the whole of October!

Weleda Skin Food | £6.95 | Review
October brought some very cold weather which made my skin, my hands in particular, very dry. Skin Food is an amazing product, I originally bought it to use on the plane to Mexico and it did an amazing job at preventing my skin from dehydrating on that horrible flight. Now I've also been loving using it as a hand cream, it's so rich, so you don't need to use much at all!

Avon Ultra Color Rich Instant Mocha Lipstick 
I can't find this online, but maybe it's still available via an Avon brochure? I love this lipstick, it's a really gorgeous berry pink shade, which I think is a really lovely shade for this time of year when you want to wear something a little more subtle than all those dark berry and plum shades! 

MAC Rebel Lipstick | £15.50 |  MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil | £12.50
If you read my recent post about my current favourite lipsticks, you'll know how much I love Rebel and I've become even more obsessed with it this month! I love pairing it with the Nightmoth lip pencil, they're such a beautiful combo! Even though Rebel isn't a matte finish, I still find it's so long-lasting. When I first wore it again this year, I was actually shocked at how vivid and long it lasted!

MAC Antiqued Eyeshadow | £13.00
I have accumulated a fair few eyeshadows and I feel like I always stick to the same old ones, so recently I've been trying to switch it up a bit. MAC Eye Shadows are probably some of my favourites, they're so pigmented and long lasting. I've really been loving Antiqued from MAC it's such a lovely reddish bronze shade, so perfect for autumn/winter!

What have you been loving recently?

P.S: You may have noticed I've been posting a lot recently... I kind of wanted to post every day for a week for the run-up to Halloween and I did it! I think posting every day is hard work and I don't think I could do it every day. Those who do are amazing!
