October Beauty Favourites

I'm sorry but how is it almost November already? This year has actually flown...I am not mentally prepared for Christmas yet! Over the past couple of months, I really have been sticking to the products that I know work for me and that I love. So there has been very little change over the past few months, but I decided to still share the items that I have really loved that last while and that have really stood out to me. 

 Too Faced "Better Than Sex" Mascara
The hype around this product is definitely justified. I didn't actually know that Debenhams in Galway has a small "Too Faced" counter in store, so when I spotted it the mascara was the first thing I grabbed! This mascara is a firm favourite of so many and is raved about by everyone, so I was dying to give it a go. If you know me, you know I love thick, black lashes..and that is exactly what this mascara gives you. The wand makes it so easy to grip and coat every lash in product. It really gives the illusion of thick lashes and is such a black black mascara that lasts all day!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick | Lolita
I picked this up in Barcelona...another thing that the internet made me buy. I already have the shade "Bow & Arrow" which has become a staple in my make-up life. Lolita is fast becoming an all time favourite lip shade. Surprisingly I don't actually have a shade like this in my collection already. This colour just screams Autumn. It is a very rich, warm-toned nude that really goes with so many different make-up looks. It's formula is just out of this world, long-lasting with such a creamy feel while on the lips which is really important. It doesn't dry out as the day goes on which a lot of other liquid lipsticks tend to do. If you can manage to get your hands on this, as it's normally sold-out, I would definitely recommend you is well worth it! 

 Wow Brown Liquid Tan
This is by no means, a new favourite. But still one that I felt I needed to mention. Over the past couple of months I have been testing out a few different tans and that in turn has rekindled my love for this. I just keep finding myself going back to it, time and time again. It never fails me. It goes on can see where you are putting it, it develops into a gorgeous dark bronze, and one of the most important things for me is that it comes off so easily. It fades nicely but when you want it all off you don't have to scrub your skin raw to remove it. I really think I have found "the one" with this tan (dramatic or what?!) and won't be straying from it anytime soon!

Origins Ginzing Eye-Cream
I have been neglecting my eyes when it comes to skincare the past couple of months and I have really noticed the difference! My eyes were dark and puffy and no matter what make-up or brightening concealer I would put would do absolutely nothing for me. Eventually I gave myself the kick up the arse, I needed and finally repurchased this eye cream from Ginzing. I bought this a few years ago, used it, loved it, but never repurchased it. In the short time that I have been using it again, I have found that it has brightened up my dark circles, brought down any puffiness, and has just overall improved the look of my eye cream which was badly needed.
 Bourjois City Radiance Foundation
Another old-ish favourite that I felt needed another rave about it. I wear this foundation everyday. It is really light-weight but still gives enough coverage to do me for everyday wear. I wear shade 03 and I find this matches my tan perfectly. It lasts really well throughout the day and gives a natural/dewy finish. I have oily skin and I find this works really well for me, so I imagine it would work for the majority of skin types. I love the fact that it comes in a squeezy tube, it makes it slightly easier to travel with.

Hopefully I will manage to be somewhat restrained over the next couple of weeks, since I have Christmas to save for (present for someone, present for me...) but please let me know what products you have been loving over the last while!
