Wow! I realised I have been loving a whole range of products this month – some old favourites have reappeared and some new products have quickly made the list. On a separate note – where has the year gone? Can you believe it’s October?
Chanel Rouge Allure Lip Gloss – Merveille #69
What girl doesn’t like a bit of luxury in her handbag? I picked this up when I was last in Hawaii and it’s my go to lip colour for high profile work events and special occasions. I wore it to the Spring Racing Carnival and it’s just a pleasure to wear and to apply and of course to carry the glam Chanel packaging around in your purse! I get compliments every time I wear it – so what’s not to like. The formula is second to none and sits nicely on the lips and has good staying power. I love this shade and want to invest in others!
The Body Shop Almond Nail & Cuticle Oil
This is a great little product that every girl should have in her handbag and desk drawer and on her night stand. Instantly nourishing, it brings your cuticles back to life and then maintains them! Love the smell and the easy application. Nice one – Body Shop!
Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer – Tiki #129
Another USA purchase from the drugstore and I am surprised at how much I love this product – especially in Spring and Summer. It just seems to add enough of a glow to my face for the work week and then I can build it up on weekends when I am out and about. Love this and the size means it’s no doubt going to last forever!
MAC Eyeshadow – Shroom
Another post about this eyeshadow shade – but what can I say. It’s such a beauty bag staple product. It’s my go to colour – my I don’t have to think about it colour. Love this – on it’s own or in combination with so many of my other favourite shades.
The more I wear this shade from Essie, the more I enjoy it. For me, this shade also transitions nicely between seasons and is still working well into Spring. I have no doubt that I will start to break out the coral colours – pinks, nudes and even reds for summer, but for the moment, I’m still really enjoying this shade which looks best for me on my short square nails.
De Lorenzo Elements Vapour MistHair Spray
I love this hair spray because of the smell and the flexible hold. I need a bit of help everyday to keep my bangs under control and this works for me. It’s a medium hold spray that contains ‘certified organic lime fruit oil’ – I love this brand!
Clinique Cleansing Milk
I started reusing this cleanser for the days when I have a full face of makeup. It gives a great thorough soothing cleanse which I then follow up with a face wipe. A solid performer but a little expensive.
Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen
A lifesaver in your handbag to clean up under eye fall out throughout the day or night. I always carry this with me for touch ups and for any eye make up emergencies. A great drug store product in an easy applicator pen.
Eco Tool Concealer Airbrush
I’m a big fan of the Real Technique brushes, so I wasn’t expecting much from this other drugstore offering. But, WOW – wasn’t I just nicely surprised. It is the best under eye concealer brush I have used and I can’t recommend it strongly enough. It’s great to cover up blemishes as well.
Burberry Sheer Concealer
After my Clinique All About Eyes Concealer finally ran out…..I was able to break out this little wonder product! I have had it in my possession for a few months but I was determined to finish the Clinique product before I opened this one. And boy. was it worth the wait. Very impressive. Great coverage and consistency. Burberry luxury in a click pen! Bliss
Josie Maran Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil
I was a very happy person when Josie Maran products launched in Kit Cosmetics here in Australia and so I made a very hasty visit to Sydney Myer. I purchased both the Hand Cream and the Infinity Cream and I loved the later so much that with only one a week of purchase it has already made by favourites! Great for hands, nails, cuticles, elbows and anywhere on the body that you feel like needs an urgent moisture hit!
Natio Face Mist
My holy grail is the Clinique Moisture Surge Face Mist but I do like to mix it up occasionally with a spay of this Natio product. It’s more than half the price of the Clinique spray but has a stronger scent which I find I have to be in the mood for. Still, it does the job and refreshes/tones my face and so it’s a nice one to have in my beauty cupboard
Love this – express from the UK! It feels like forever to get to the new episode each week – I just want to know what happens! I love the costumes, the characters, the sets…..next time I am in the UK I definitely want to visit the castle.
The Good Wife
One of the best shows on TV and things are getting interesting this season with Alicia running for the State’s Attorney’s Office! It’s not the same without Will but I have been loving the story lines for Cary.
What did you love this October?
