We are midway through November now and this post was originally due to launch two weeks ago but I was finding the lighting so difficult to work with. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love the change in seasons but I'm up out the door for work at half nine most days and by the time I'm home by two it's already dark. Two? Seriously, haha. #bloggerproblems. Anywho on the positive side it's nearly Christmas, eek! I'm so so excited! I love everything about Christmas. The big roast dinner, family gatherings, opening of presents etc. It's even more exciting for me now I have a little one to treat and spend my time with. Isn't it crazy to think my little cheeky chappy is 1 just four days after Christmas? What a lucky boy Alfie is. He's going to be well and truly spoilt.
Moving on though, I have a few new beauty favourites from October. A combination of makeup and skincare products which I absolutely love and am still continuing to use throughout this month too.
First of all is Pixi Glow Tonic. A product I've been using non stop for the last two months. It gives my skin a beautiful glow, evens out my skin tone and completely rids my skin of any dry skin. Over the last couple of weeks I've had no need to use a exfoliating scrub within these months as this does just the job and is super gentle on my skin compared to a scrub. It's definitely a holy grail for me. I'm already on my second bottle of the stuff. There will be a full review on this in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled if you'd like to know more.
Onto my most used throughout October, MAC Brave Lipstick. A cult favourite lipstick in the bloggosphere since the whole Kylie Jenner craze started. I've had it on my wishlist for a while and I'm so glad I finally invested in it. It's an absolutely stunning pink toned nude and it suits my skin tone down to a tee. It goes with any makeup look which I absolutely love. I can't stop using it. I've been loving creating smokey eyes lately and this gorgeous lipstick completely tones it down.
There's another product from Pixi in my favourites this month and that is the Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist. It's completely new to me. I've always stayed loyal to my MAC Fix Plus but since I discovered this it's not been used or seen since. The Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist is super refreshing and makes my makeup look a lot fresher and flawless. It soaks into the skin quite quickly. Oh, and it smells incredible! It includes rose water and green tea which I love.
I have two eyeshadow palette favourites too. I mentioned in my last favourites that I've been experimenting with eyeshadow more, in fact I've not gone a day without it on my lids(except on lazy days). Both are from Urban Decay and are completely different. First is the Naked 3 Palette, a (mainly) pink toned palette including gorgeous shimmery pinks, a rose gold with a few mauve and dark tones to switch it up a bit, but not drastically. I've been loving rose gold eyes and the shade Trick is the perfect lid shade, it goes beautifully with Nooner in the crease. This is my favourite go to eye look with this particular palette.
The second palette is none other than the Vice 3 Palette. I have been using this palette the most and I love every single shade in it, particularly DTF, Alchemy, Bondage and Bobby Dazzle. The names are well thought out and the pigmentation is insane as you would expect from the likes of Urban Decay. Love love love! I'm still using this palette to this day. The shade Bobby Dazzle is just the perfect brow bone and inner corner highlight. I can not be without!
