Can you believe that it's November already? This year is going ridiculously quick and I'm not ready to think about Christmas yet! Anyway, today I've got my favourite products from October to share with you.
For my birthday, some of my friends bought me the Ultimate Travelist book. This contains the best 500 places to visit and you also get a map with the top 100 places, so you can pin that on your wall if you want to. The photos in this book are beautiful and I enjoyed going through it and seeing how many places I'd visited (which was only 13!). Next time I book a holiday I'm going to use the Ultimate Travelist to see where I should go.
Halloween gave me the perfect excuse to buy a vampy lipstick and lipliner from MAC. I picked up the shade Sin, which is a dark blue red matte lipstick, and I also got Dark Out, which is a burgundy plum pro longwear lip pencil. This combination goes really well together and lasted all night for Halloween - if you want to see what it looks like on my lips then check out my previous blog post here.
This month I've been using the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray a lot. I had never used a makeup setting spray before this, however, I have quite oily skin and this spray does seem to help stop my makeup from rubbing off my nose and chin. The spray promises to keep your makeup looking like it's just been applied for up to 16 hours - I haven't worn my makeup for that long so I don't know how true that is, but the spray keeps my makeup looking better for longer.
Finally, the VO5 Give Me Texture Instant Oomph Powder has been a saviour when my hair's looking flat. You just shake some of the powder into your roots (not too much otherwise it can start to feel sticky) and then rub it in to add volume. If you want to add more volume then you can backcomb the powder into your hair.
Have you tried any of these products? What did you like using in October?
