October Favourites

This was an especially hard month for me to pick favourites. With all the new products I have added to my stash during October, I haven't really been picking the same products regularly. Therefore this months favourites post is quite light on the products. 

Nars And God Created the Woman Eye Palette
I have really been enjoying this neutral palette lately. The shades are gorgeous and work so well together. I love using the top right shade all over the lid with the bottom middle shade in the outer corner. I then use the black on the bottom right to line my eyes and the top left shade as a highlight. These shadows are pigmented, soft and easy to blend. I love the eye looks I can create with this palette. 

Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in Nude No. 1
This is a highly pigmented, creamy lipstick. I was expecting something sheerer but I was happy with the surprise. This shade is described as a pale pink and I would agree. I actually own three different shades and there are only slight differences in the actual colour. It wears really well and doesn't dry out my lips. I also like how stylish the tube is for a pencil form. 

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer
I have had a few pimples pop up over the last month and I have found this the best concealer in my stash to really cover them up. The shade Light matches my skin really well. I find if I set this with some powder then the coverage lasts pretty much all day. 

Moroccanoil Oil Treatment
I have noticed during the last couple of weeks that my hair has been looking dull and a little frizzy, especially so after using dry shampoo. I had forgotten how much I love this product after neglecting it for a couple of months. My hair instantly looks healthy, smooth and shiny. I love the smell of this stuff too. 

I have a few other products that could have been included here - mainly items from the Chanel holiday collection but I will be posting reviews in the next week or so. Therefore I didn't want to include them as I felt it may get a bit repetitive. 

What were your favourites for October?


  1. I've heard good thing about Hard Candy cosmetics and that concealer looks great! Love the sound of that Moroccan oil treatment as well, my hair gets very neglected because it is so long even washing it is a pain!

    1. The concealer is the first item I have tried from Hard Candy but I would consider trying more after the good results with the concealer. I hear you on the long hair - it can be an absolute pain but I refuse to cut it :)

  2. Hey Steph! That Nars palette looks amazing, I would love to get my hands on it - where did you get it from? Also, have you found a place in Aus that sells Hard Candy?
    Thanks heaps :-)

    1. The Nars palette came from Sephora (and it is still available) but I know some people have used eBay to get it. I purchased the Hard Candy from - they stock a few items from Hard Candy but not a lot. :)
