October Favourites

There haven't been a whole lot of products that I've been crazy about this month.  I struggled to make this list up to 10.....

1) Plush Therapy Mild Dermabrasion Face and Body Scrub
For some reason, whilst the rest of my face is unseasonably oily, my nose is still super dry. I apply this at the same time as my moisturiser in the morning to prevent my foundation caking. The beads are the perfect size for the face but I can't imagine it would be very effective on the body.

2) Nails Inc Matte Top Coat in Westminster
Love it! I'm a matte junkie so this was a dream product for me. I've had it partnered with a navy L'Oreal polish for the majority of the month and I'm obsessed.

3) Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 010 Light Porcelain
Who knew someone as pale as me could get even paler in the colder months? This is the perfect shade for me when I haven't tanned and has good lasting power.

4) NYX Lip Liner in Nude Pink
Obsessed! I wear this all over my lips with a balm on top  for work. It's a 'your lips but better colour'. My lips don't naturally have much pigmentation but I can pull this off as a super natural look and it lasts really well as well. I get close to the 4 hour mark.

5) Natural Collection Cream Blusher in Naked Glow
This is a blusher that I bought ages ago and wasn't blown away by but I've recently been giving it another go and I'm seriously impressed by the staying power. They last forever!

6) Maybelline Brow Drama in Medium Brown
My brows are naturally super blonde and one of them will not dye beyond the arch which is a royal pain in the backside so I desperately need for my brow products to last all day. This stuff is long-lasting and really natural looking.

7) Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse
I've tried loads of tanning products in the past but I've always been disappointed....until now! To look less corpse-like I leave it on for 1 hour and to look like I've been in actual sun I leave it on for 2. This doesn't even streak on a novice like myself.

8) Costa 'Hot Spiced Apple'
If any of you follow me on twitter you may have seen my new obsession. I'm averaging about 5 of these a week. It's essentially a hot apple juice with cinnamon and fig but it smells like my favourite Glade candle. I'm going to be heartbroken when the seasons change and they stop doing them!

9) Taylor Swift - Blank Space
Swiftie for life but I'm not going to lie, this new album isn't my favourite. I think most of the songs are going to be growers for me. However, I've had Blank Space on repeat almost constantly since I first heard it. I absolutely love it! Definitely my favourite song on 1989.

10) Speed The Plow
More specifically Lindsay Lohan in Speed The Plow. She is one of my absolute favourite famous' so I booked a spontaneous overnight trip (two days in advance) at the beginning of the month and have been on cloud nine (and seriously skint) ever since. I'm not just saying this because I could fangirl about her all day but she was seriously amazing.
