October Favourites



Happy Halloweeeen! It's the end of the month so its time for some monthly favourites. I want to start out by saying THANK YOU. At the start of this month I hit 100,000 views on this little old blog - that is huge and I can't believe that so many people have clicked to come over and read what I write. Now on to the beauty, everything I mention in this post has been talked about on my blog or on instagram, I haven't really tried many things that are new due to been busy with my head in books... 

L'Oreal True Match (find full review here) - Since trying out the new formula of this foundation I have been hooked and refuse to try out anything else. I am that obsessed that I already have a bottle in reserve for when I run out oops. Everything about it is just perfect, the consistency is much better than the first time around, it doesn't cling on to the dry patches and it lasts all day. I do have to powder but that's just oil that collects on my face. It works so well in the winter I hope its the same in the summer as well. p.s did you know that L'oreal posted my image of the foundation on their instagram and twitter?

Seventeen Falsifeye Mascara (full review here) - A new discover this month for me but a very good one. This mascara gives my lashes the effect of wearing false lashes but doesn't take the time or the effort. The wand has two sides and a cone so I can get every single lash n my lid, without having to find too many funny faces.

Maybelline Midnight Red - Where do I even begin with this colour, it is my new go to autumnal colour. I have reapplied it every single time I have gone to paint my toes or fingers. It lasts forever, with no chips even with all the washing up I have been doing! And the colour is one that everyone seems to like not just me!

Maybelline Divine Wine (full post here) - I once heard that having matching lips and nails was a big no no but I say yes yes. I think it looks a lot better if its all matching and what better to match my nail colour with then a berry lipstick! Divine Wine is a gorgeous colour that applies like butter to the lips and lasts all day, I am not a eye makeup wearer so this lip colour did scare me at first but with lovely bronzed skin it looks great.

Wet n Wild Cinnamon Spice - Another lipstick because who can only use one?! This is a pretty similar colour to the maybelline one but it isn't as red and more purple toned. Which does make it easier to wear as more things go with it. The formula of these aren't as creamy but just as matter and long lasting. Even though it does bleed a fair bit.


Food
I always love so much food but never have evidence to show you, the first thing I have loved this month is green tea! It was a thing that I loved a while back and then went off it and now i love it again! I drink a cup as and when I can and it gives me a boost of energy like a cup of tea would. I am also loving the Starbucks PSL, but this is a reoccurring favourite of mine and a lot of people don't like it but I like the spicy and sweet together.
Areo chocolate is another obsession of mine, mainly the mint one I could eat a large bag all by myself if I had the chance. Also, cereal bars have been a life saver. I keep one in my bag and then during the day when I get peckish they come in handy - the Alpen ones are great!

Candle
yankee candle toasted marshmallows
This is a new candle love! I can't have them at university and it is killing me every day but when I come home I am always lighting this one that I spotted in Asda. It smells good enough that you want to eat it. At first it is a bit sickly like most of their sweet ones are but afterwards it smells like gooey marshmallows on top of the fire and similar to fireside treats but slightly sweeter.

What have you been loving this month/week/day?
