October Favourites!

Wow! It's already the end of October! I can't believe how fast time is flying by these days. It has been 3 months since I started blogging and I've met so many wonderful people. I went out for Halloween last night and had an amazing time. I can't wait to show you all pics! I think my group of girls really pulled off each of our superhero/villians characters well. Anyways, monthly favourites are always fun to read, so here are mine!

MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator: This is one of those luxury products. Why does it have to be LE? I HATE LE products ESPECIALLY skin care. My face loves this stuff. I've been only using this about once a week because I want to save it. It makes my skin feel SOOO incredibly smooth that I want to buy more, but need to put my excessive beauty product spending on hold so I can purchase gifts for Christmas. *sigh.

Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline): This stuff is a great beauty product! Lipsticks have been very drying on my lips lately, but if I put some vaseline on them at night before bed they will be soft and moisturized by morning. I also have been using this on my lashes to condition them before bed. I've noticed a difference in my lashes and it's only been two weeks! I will definitely be keeping this up. Some days I even put this on my cheeks to give them a nice dewy glow. Why I never used this before I don't know. It's a miracle product for sure.

MAC Nylon eyeshadow: My favourite eyeshadow for highlighting! I loveeee Nylon. I've been using this a lot this month since it's a recent purchase of mine. If I could have only one highlight colour this would be it. I'll be repurchasing it time and again.

NYX Jumbo Pencil in "Milk":
A great base for your eyeshadows to stick to that not only is cheap, but makes your eyeshadow stand out more.

MAC 219 Brush: I use to always line my eyes with pencil or liquid liner, but now I line my eyes with eyeshadow (it stays on WAYYY longer). This brush has the perfect point for lining your eye with shadow, smudging and blending. I've had this brush for a year now, but it has been coming it quite useful lately now that I've started to line my eyes with eyeshadow more often!

MAC Shy Girl Lipstick: I'm into peaches and corals on the lips at the moment. Shy Girl is one of those colours I think would be universally flattering on everyone. I absolutely love this colour and haven't been able to find a dupe for it. If you know of anything close let me know.

Maybelline Lipliner in "Rose":
Another product I've been using very frequently this month. Also a new purchase and I'm in love.

I know I always have a lot of MAC products and never anything else, but that's because I'm a MAC head. It's not that I'm discriminatory to other brands, because I do pick up and try out other things, it's just my love resides with MAC. It is my first true love. lol

Hope your having an amazing halloween weekend! ♥

  4. I hear ya, I also need to focus on saving money and spending it strictly on other people for Christmas gifts.

    I was too afraid t try the volcanic ash exfoliator! Lol. But if it's ever repromoted again, I think I'll give it a chance :)

    Great post!

  5. Shygirl is my fav. color of all time. I have never come across a dupe. I hope I do though, lol because the formula always smashes on me!

  6. Sweet favourites, isn't Milk lovely?


  7. I just came across your blog and I love it! I was wondering, what eyeshadows do you like to use to line your eyes?

  8. @Macosophy - My go-to eyeshadow to line my eyes is MAC Carbon. If I want a pop of colour to bring out my eyes I usually grab a purple or blue to line the lower lashline. 90% of the time lately I've been using Carbon!
