FAVES | OCTOBER 2017

I'm back with another favourites post for the month, I haven't really tried a lot of new things lately, I've been on a budget because of all the travelling and Christmas is fast approaching. This means I've had more time to rediscover some of my old favourites.


October Favourites - The Body Shop & L'Oreal | The Beauty is a Beast

Ever since I've picked up The Body Shop Aloe Cream Cleanser it's been a staple in my skin routine. I normally use a makeup wipe to take off the excess of my makeup and then finish it off with the cleanser which helps for a deeper clean. Another favourite of mine is the L'Oreal Hydra Genius which is a perfect moisturiser for everyday use and it is something everyone has been raving about lately and I can definitely see why! I'm usually worried that some drugstore skincare ends up breaking me out but this one has been absolutely fine after so many applications. If only it could double as a primer?! 


October Favourites - Colourpop | The Beauty is a Beast


Another firm favourite since I've received them are the Colourpop No Filter Concealer - I have the shades light-medium 15 and light 20. For only $6 dollars, they are an absolute bargain. The coverage is amazing, it doesn't seem to crease excessively on me and it blends like a dream.

October Favourites - JCat & Stila | The Beauty is a Beast

It's coming to the seasons where pigments are my most used products within my makeup looks. I've previously reviewed and swatched the JCat Beauty Eyeshadow Pigments and this shade Rose Sienna has been a firm favourite. I received the Stila Magnificient Metals in Rose Gold Retro for my birthday and it's the perfect topper for an evening look. The glitter fallout can be a bit annoying when you're touching up your blending but I would definitely pick this up in more shades. I'm also really interested to see if there are any more affordable dupes out there.


October Favourites - Milani | The Beauty is a Beast

Setting sprays don't often get featured a lot on my blog, but they're definitely an essential for everyday makeup looks. The Milani Make It Last Setting Spray is the best drugstore setting spray currently on the market. The mister is amazing and it doesn't soak your face. It really helps remove the chunky look from highlights or the heavy foundation look. It's a tad more expensive than a normal drugstore product and you only get 60ml but it's 100% worth it.


October Favourites - Becca, Colourpop & Pur | The Beauty is a Beast
The Becca Cosmetics Opal Highlighter has been one of my go-to highlighters for travelling lately and it always tops off my makeup look, especially when paired with a warm eyeshadow. This shade is perfect for light/medium skin tones. I've always loved the Colourpop liquid lipsticks ever since I've tried them but sometimes I found the matte formula to be very crackly or too drying for an everyday wear. I decided to pick up a few shades in the satin formula and this Colourpop x iluvsarahii Satin Lip in 951 is such a flattering shade. The formula is super comfortable to wear and a perfect warm nude shade which is perfect for every day. 

Lastly, my favourite mascara has been the Pur Fully Charged Mascara this gives the most amazing curl and volume to my lashes. It's incredibly easy to work with and doesn't flake off during the day. Although this is slightly expensive as mascara goes I find it doesn't clump or take as much work to look nice compared to the L'Oreal Lash Paradise.
