October Favorites


Can you believe it’s nearly NOVEMBER!?!!? For some reason, my mind still thinks it’s September, but thank god it’s not because I don’t know if I could deal with another month of school. Anyway, I’ve got A LOT of favorites…just bear with me!
Philosophy Marshmallows for Toasting Shower Gel
I got this for Christmas last year, I just haven’t gotten around to using it until now. As you can see, it’s all gone but THIS SMELLS AMAZING! Think caramel, but with more butter, but with more sugar…okay, this just isn’t working. Unfortunately, I think it was limited edition, but maybe you can find it on Ebay or something.
Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Hand Creme
I got this in September, but I have been loving it! I have a post coming up on it soon so I won’t say too much about it except it’s grrreeeatttt (okay – I’ve just seen too many Frosted Flake commercials).
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula
Like I said, I’m trying to use this word less frequently, but I really am OBSESSED  with this body lotion/creme/butter/best stuff on earth. It’s super thick, but not really heavy. It makes my skin sooo soft and smooth. Plus, it smells amazing! One day I was putting this on after my shower and the hear kicked on in the house…and it actually smelled like chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven. No. Joke.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
I did a full post on this so check it out here! It works beautifully as a setting spray too. It solves any but of powdery-ness with the most natural looking addition.
Kerastase Elixir Ultime
I’m not a big hair person, but I may or may not have stolen this from my mom (surry), and I really like it. When you haven’t gotten your hair cut in over five months and it goes through as much damage as mine does…you need this. It works really well and conditions the ends of my hair beautifully!!!

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer
I did a blog post on this so you can check that out here. Let me just say one thing – I hate lip gloss, but I love this one (and yes, that may be ironic, but it’s the truth).
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
I held back on this forever and I really shouldn’t be posting about it because I got it less than a week ago, but I love it. I love it. I love it. I love it. I think I may do a post on these soon.
Real Techniques Stippling Brush
I have used this to apply foundation nearly every day since I got it and I just can’t stop. Again…I did a post on it here.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes in Natural Beauty and Exposed
I really cannot get enough of these. The colors are so pretty, the formulation is ridiculously easy to work with, and they last a really long time. They have DEFINITELY  become my favorites and *just for emphasis*, I just cannot get enough! I did a post on each of these, and here is the one on Natural Beauty and here is the one on Exposed.

Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme in Rose Gold
I did a post on this here (what can I say – I’m a blogging machine), but that still doesn’t do it justice. It is perhaps the most gorgeous highlight I think I have ever used. Just check out the post because I need to cut it here or else we’ll be here all night talking about this product.

MAC eyeshadow in Soba
This is a gorgeous eyeshadow. It is a satin, so it just has the perfect, natural looking shimmer, the color works really well with my skin tone (which I would say is light), and, frankly, I just cannot get enough. If you haven’t seen this one, check it out.

| well, that’s it for October favorites. what have been some of your favorite products this month? |
