October Makeup Favourites 2013

Heya! The month of October was the real changing point in my seasonal makeup as it really starts to get colder and I find myself reaching for those darker reds over the summery pinks I had been wearing. Because of all the great new products I have tried recently, I decided it would be a good idea to do a post on all my favourite products from the past month. If my daily makeup varies enough I may start making this a monthly thing as I find these really helpful whenever I read them.

Face Products:

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in 'Vanilla':
Lightweight but with buildable coverage, this is my current favourite foundation. It feels like nothing on your skin and is not greasy at all like other light foundations I have tried e.g. Maybelline 'Fit Me' and is a really good match for my pale winter skin tone (great for yellow/olive undertoned skin!).

Clinique Superpowder Double Face Powder in 'Matte Ivory':
Although the colour match is not perfect as there seems to be no yellow based powders in this line, I LOVE this powder at the moment. The coverage is amazing, you could wear this as a foundation. It is by far the best powder I have ever tried, worth the slightly hefty price tag.

Maybelline The Eraser Eye in 'Light':
This is the best under eye concealer I have ever tried. It covers dark circles very well leaving just a faint shadow visible under my eyes and is well needed after getting up at 5:50am for college half the week! It is very creamy and blendable and is very yellow toned (hooray!) so matches my foundation and skin perfectly!

Sleek Brow Kit in 'Light':
Although I don't use the wax, I do really like this handy little kit. The powder (like always) is slightly too much of warm brown but is the closest match to my eye brows so far. I have gone form someone who never felt the need to fill their brows in to using this every day, so that speaks for itself!

Collection 2000 Extreme Felt Tip Liner in 'Black':

I do really like this eyeliner for the price. Although it still doesn't beat the Maybelline version, at half the price I can deal with that! The only difference to me is it takes a little more skill to apply neatly and isn't quite as black, but apart from that I do like it a lot.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 'Crush'
This has been my go-to lip colour recently because it is so quick and easy to apply before leaving the door, and easy to take in your pocket for touch ups throughout the day. It is long lasting and very pigmented so I usually wear it sheer by just dabbing it on for a subtle hint of colour. I have tried many plum/red toned lipsticks, usually in deeper tones like this, and this is by far one of my favourites. Very good for people like me that seem to suit reds over pinks, especially if again like me your lips are naturally quite pigmented with red as it just deepens this colour and is very pretty.
Lots of Love,
