October Beauty Favourites

Hello!  It's November already, I can't believe it!  (Well actually I can because it's so flippin' dark outside).  October seemed to go by so fast I can hardly remember it.  I do remember enough about it though to write a little post on my beauty favourites from that month.  Something that nearly got totally wrecked thanks to a performance hairstyle I had to wear which needed back combing every day (eek!) was my hair.  I had had the Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Deep Repair mask in my cabinent but not really needed it that desperately.... until now.
I started putting this on the mid length to end of my ratty locks probably about 3 times a week and it really did make a difference.  I could finally comb through my hair again!  It only needs to be left on for 3 minutes and I spread it on quite liberally because I was desperate and the hair needed it.  Once on I combed through it gently with my finger tips.  Well thankfully it did the trick.  My hair survived.
Maybelline Colour Tattoo Hot Mama The Balm
I've blogged about my latest purchase from TheBalm, the Hot Mama Blush, quite a few times already since I purchased it.  It definitely stood out as something I used frequently this month.  I particularly like the gold shimmer in it and that the colour is quite bright.  Just one quick sweep across my cheeks is more than enough!
Brown eye shadow used to seriously bore me, but lately I've been coming round to the way it can define eyes without looking too obvious or unnatural.  The Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze is a great example of this as the colour isn't too dark and adds a nice sheen to the eye lids.  It's very wearable for day time and although it does tend to slide around a bit on my eyelids eventually, it's something I've been reaching for quite a lot.  It's super quick to apply and a little goes a long way.
So those are my favourites for last month.  Definitely with an emphasis on time saving.  It was a busy month!

Till next time :)



  1. I had almost the exact same hair mask in my October favorites! Great minds think alike :)
