October Favourites 2018

I don’t know if it’s the rainy London weather, the hot cups of coffee in the morning or the cosy feeling from the fairy lights I hang around the house right when leaves start changing colours. But it’s something about October that makes me want to sit down and write about my monthly favourites.

Makeup Revolution London

Blush Palette in Golden Sugar – find it here for £6.

Throughout the month of October, I have been reaching for this palette whenever I needed a bit of definition or highlight.

The shimmery shades in this palette are highly pigmented, but the two blush colours lack a bit in pigmentation. Overall it is a great palette, especially taking into consideration its price.

Too Faced

Melted Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Pumpkin Spice

One of my best friends came to visit London and as an early birthday present, she got me a set of liquid lipsticks from Too Faced. I received lots of compliments whenever I wore this colour, and aside from the fact that it lasts a long time on your lips, it also smells and tastes sweet.


Garnier SkinActive

Pure Active 3 in 1 Charcoal Anti-Blackhead – find it here for £4.99.

This product is a wash, scrub and a mask, all in one. When I need a gentle cleanser I use it as a wash, a few times a week I use it as a scrub and when I need to purify my skin I leave it to act as a mask.

Botanical Day Cream Hydrate + Refresh with Aloe Extract – find it here for £5.99.

After I use the cleanser I mentioned above, I apply this moisturiser to make sure I hydrate my skin. It is easily absorbed and even though it is a face cream for a normal skin type, it also works for my sensitive skin.



Dry Shampoo – find it here for £4.99.

Since I started my final year of university, this dry shampoo has been saving me and my hair. I have a lot going on at the moment and I don’t have time to always wash and style my hair. So, when I am in a rush or simply cannot be bothered to also wash my hair, I add this to my roots, run my fingers through and voilà! Perfect voluminous hair even on bad hair days.


M&S Beauty

Moisturising Hand and Nail Cream Floral Collection

It’s Autumn, each morning gets crispier and my hands get dryer. I carry hand cream in my purse, I keep it on my nightstand and on my vanity. I am in a constant need to moisturise my hands, so they can stay soft and not suffer from the cold weather. These hand creams from M&S have been my go-to option. The skin absorbs the cream in no time and it also smells divine!


These have been a few of my October favourites and I hope you’ve got a bit of inspiration regarding new products.

I find inspiration in the little things and I always write with a cup of coffee next to me.
