Hello there, today is all about my month favorites, unfavorites and face from the month of October 2018, a fairly quick passing month. Last month my picks were boring and this month I think I have a few more things of interest to share, but not too many. I also have a ton of unfavorites this month, just a lot of things I did not like. So, let’s dive in.
Physicians Formula Butter Blush in Vintage Rouge – I was so on the fence about this for a while but I think I finally have a proper stance on it and that is that I very much like it, it took a while to grow on me but now it has and it’s a really nice, soft but buildable blush.
Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Mascara in Softy Browny Brows – I haven’t used this in what feels like months but I recently broke it out again and am really happy that I did, I forgot how much I actually love this stuff. This is really natural and really simple, but it really takes my eyebrows to the next level.
Essence Volume Booster Lash Primer – I never thought that I would care about a lash primer but I do, I’ve only tried a couple but this one is my favorite and this one is something that I have noticed a difference with, it really makes my lashes pop.
Ace Beaute Slice of Paradise Palette – I had to have this when I saw it, just like a lot of things and like a lot of things, it sat in my drawer for a little while but I really broke it out this month. This palette is super easy to work with, super pigmented and a really fantastic palette. My only complaint might be that I don’t always find it the easiest to only work within this palette, but that’s fine, I have plenty of other options to bring in with it.
Makeup Revolution Conceal + Define Foundation – Maybe I’m not applying enough, I’m not sure, but I don’t think this is full coverage. I kind of prefer that it’s not, it’s very comfortable on the skin while also being medium coverage for me, I am a big fan of this right now.
NYX HD Blush in Taupe – Is my go to contour shade, I feel like this has been a classic for a while now, even with the new formula and I am a fan. I don’t typically heavily contour but instead go for a bit of a lighter one, which this one is great for either, you can sheer it and blend it out or build it up. Very versatile.
Ofra Pillowtalk Highlighter – Is pretty new for me but I knew I loved this from the very first use, even though I did end up having to tone it down majorly after my first application of this. This highlighter is very much blinding and a little bit goes a long way, so much so that I’m not sure I would ever finish it, but I’m going to try.
Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation – I did not like this, part of it was that it was a little bit dark for me in the shade fair and in turn turned a little bit orange and the other part was the fact that it pilled and looked super splotchy around the nose. I hated it and will be passing this one along.
Atelier Cologne Cedre Atlas – I did not like this scent at all, it was very strong, very woodsy and very masculine. It just wasn’t my kind of scent and I have had to pass this one along.
W7 Candy Floss Blush – This is in my project pan and I have finally given up on it, it’s not completely terrible but I just don’t love this formula, it’s a big patchy and doesn’t always look the way that I want it to. So off it goes.
Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner – This just doesn’t work well, not when I got it and not now, I have tried to work with it and I don’t know if it’s me or what, but I hate trying to work with it and have just given up on it, so I have tossed this one.
Butter London Glazen Peel Off Polish in Aura – This one is so sad, I love Butter London and the idea of peel off polish, but I tried this and knew that I hated it. It’s also super disappointing because it is so new to me, but this was just really thick, like it had been sitting out for weeks, it smells terrible and was just hard to work with. I am going to try this again but I don’t have a lot of hopes for this one.
Atelier Cologne Mandarine Glaciale – Another scent from my little sample set that I did not like, I’m not sure what it was about this one but it was a little off and just not my favorite.
This is my pick from the month of October, a really warm and festive look if you ask me and I am super happy with how every part of this turned out and think that this was a fantastic pick for the month of October.
And those are all of my favorite and unfavorites from the month of October, I had a lot of things that I did not like this month, almost as many as my favorites. I’m hoping that November shapes up to be a better month but we will just have to wait and see how that goes.
Any favorites or unfavorites of the month for you guys?
