| October Favorites |


October went by hella fast and I want time to slow down because I'm feeling old and overwhelmed. No, but really, like I know I say it every single month, but time is really moving way too quickly. It's already the end of October, how??

Enough talking about time, it's a new month and you know what that means. Another monthly favorites post! Here are my October Favorites! 

October Favorites 





Favorite Skincare Product: Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water & Waterproof Makeup Remover

A while back I bought the Garnier Micellar Water in the pink bottle and I really liked it. I bought this one, in the blue bottle, because it removes waterproof makeup too. I actually use it as a light cleanser in the morning, to clean my face so it's clear of all impurities before applying any makeup. I love this as a cleanser because it's super light and not harsh, perfect for my annoying sensitive skin.

Favorite Face Product: Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Palette

This was a total spontaneous buy, I had no plans to buy this, I don't think I even really looked at any reviews of it either. I happened to be at Ulta and it was on sale and I figured why not try it out, you know ya girl loves a good highlight to make that skin glow. 
It's actually really amazing. I prefer my highlight to be subtle and more natural looking and this palette is perfect for achieving that look!

Favorite Eye Product: Smashbox X-Rated Mascara

I'm not sure if I mentioned this or not but I picked up this mascara during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale for only $10, that's drugstore price for a high end mascara! Anyways, it's actually become one of my favorite mascaras. It's a little wet, but it makes my lashes look amazing and I've been reaching for it pretty much every time I do my makeup this month.

Favorite Lip Product: Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit Liquid Lipsticks

I have no idea why it took me so long to try these liquid lipsticks out, since I pretty much buy everything Wet n Wild releases as soon as it comes out, but I finally did this month and I'm in love. These liquid lipsticks are pigmented and they wear really well, not dry at all. Also, they have this gorgeous blue shade that is probably my favorite thing in the entire world. 

Favorite Hair Product: No. 4 Smoothing Balm

I got this smoothing balm in a Birchbox, not too sure which one, but I finally started using it this month and it's such a great product. I love using it when my hair is a little frizzy or unmanageable and I don't have time to wash or heat style it. It always leaves my hair looking shiny and smooth!

Songs I've had on repeat this month

Pretty much everything by Neck Deep. I discovered them on Spotify, they're a pop-punk band from the UK and their songs sound like pretty much everything I listened to in high school, (and still listen to today), and I'm in love. I'm a sucker for pop punk. 


Those are all of the things I've been loving this past month! What are some of your October favorites? I'd love to hear!

  3. I never tried using the micellar water as a morning cleanser! Interesting! My skin always breaks out it’s annoying but I wonder how that would work. Love your round-ups! �� Jen Beautylifemom.com
