October Favourites 

Holy moly, how is it already the end of October? And even more so how did I manage to get all my posts up on time this month? I know they say time flies when you’re having fun but ever since I had Bentley and more so since I started this blog time has been flying by. But since it’s now the end of the month that means it’s time for my October favourites.

Without further ado let’s get on to my first favourite from the month.

My first favourite this month is something I have been meaning to buy for a while; However everytime I have been to anywhere that sells NYX in Sault Ste Marie, they have been sold out of. That being said it is the NYX lip lingerie liquid lipsticks. Seriously tho, where have these been all my life? They have the most amazing pigmentation, staying power and are not drying. Aka my dream come true. They come in 11 nude shades and I personally picked up 5 of them while in Toronto at the beginning of the month! (One of them is currently missing in my room somewhere tho.)
Next up is a skincare item because I have no idea what happened with my skin but all of a sudden it decided it’s time to break out like mad. I have been reading about activated charcoal and the benefits of it for your skin, so I decided to try the Biore Deep Pore Charcoal cleanser. The charcoal sinks into your pores and draws out more dirt, makeup, oil and impurities than a regular cleanser. It is literally amazing. My pores have never looked so small in my makeup wearing life. It also leaves your skin feeling tingly and clean, I would highly recommend this to anyone searching for a new cleanser. 
Next is another skin care item, because as I said I’m so sick of these stupid breakouts. So the same day I picked up the Biore cleanser I also picked up the Clean and Clear Blackhead clearing astringent. My nose has always been covered in blackheads no matter how many times I wash my face or what I use, but since I started using this astringent my nose pores are visibly cleaner and smaller. And for under 10$ I may have found my new holy grail skin product. 
My fourth favourite this month brings us back to a makeup favourite. It is the Makeup Forever Excessive Lash Mascara. I’m not sure how new this product is but it is fairly new to me. I received this in an Ipsy bag a few months ago, and it was sitting in my drawer of mascaras since. But the minute I tried it I knew it was love at first coat. It goes on so smoothly (thanks to the fibre-y brush) and allows you to build your length and fullness without the clumps. I will definitely need to purchase a full sized one when my deluxe sample runs out. 

My fifth item, is actually a fashion item but with that being said cardigans are my new favourite thing this month. I love how easy they are to throw on and how cute they look with little effort. Plus there’s nothing more cozy than curling up in a nice cozy cardigan in the crisp fall air. My all time favourite cardigan right now is my maroon button up with gold chain link down the side made. And I love even more that I found it in my thrifting adventures for under $10! 

And my final favourite of the month is going to be a new feature to my monthly favourites. It is my top 10 songs in a Spotify playlist. This month I’ve been really enjoying songs with a tropical house feel and others are just catchy. Check out my playlist below.

*Note they are in so specific order!

Ps. I finally got 200 Instagram followers so keep tuned for my first giveaway !!

  • I’ve been using a charcoal face wash also! I think it’s the Garnier one but I will pick up the Biore to give that one a try! If you haven’t already tried them, you should pick up The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal mask or Pixi’s Glow Mud Mask! I find them both to be seriously great when I’m breaking out!

      I have a sample of the Pixi Glow Mud Mask, but I’ll definitely check out the Body Shop mask. I work in the mall on Tuesday so I’ll stop there on my way! I’m excited now!! Thank you 🙂

    I love how you included your music favourites! Such a cool feature. I’ve been loving a lot of those songs this month also! I feel like the tropical house feel keeps my mind off of how cold it’s been getting lately!
