Beauty Faves - October

Didn't October fly by! I bought a few new beauty products last month and I have a rather large Christmas list for Santa. There are so many fab products around at the moment. 

If you missed my faves from September then catch up here, Beauty Faves September.

Here are my beauty faves for October:

1) Too Faced Kabuki Brush

This has been without a doubt, my favourite beauty buy of last month. In fact, it's probably my fave beauty buy in a while. It is the most amazing brush ever. It is so soft.
It's cruelty free and vegan which is great. It can be used with liquids, creams and powders. It's designed to be used with pressed powders, loose powders and any cheek colour. However, my friend and local make up artist Ant Gorgeous suggested that I use it as a foundation brush and I've never looked back since. It is perfect for applying foundation and my skin has looked flawless since applying it with the Kabuki brush. The brush is retractable so I use it shorter for my whole face and longer for my neck. Get this on your Christmas wish-list asap. You won't regret it.

2) Benefit Moisture Prep Toning Lotion

I've been using the same skincare products for years and whilst i've never had a problem with them, I thought i'd start to take it a bit more seriously. After all, my skin unfortunately isn't getting any younger. I cleanse, tone and moisturise every day but thought i'd start trying some new products in that routine.
I decided to try the Benefit Moisture Prep Toning Lotion which allows the skin to fully optimise the benefits of your moisturiser. It contains vitamin E acetate, meadowsweet, natural oat, a blend of aloe leaf and yeast extract and botanical extracts. 
Even though it comes out of the bottle and appears quite thick, it feels very lightweight on my skin. A small amount goes a long way. It's very cooling and refreshing to use so i'll be taking it with me when we head on holiday to sunny Australia next month. I find it very hydrating too. One of the best things about it is the smell.

3) Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1

Another Too Faced product has made the fave lists. This time it's their Hangover 3-in-1 primer and setting spray. I absolutely adore this and use it all the time. It's a coconut water infused mist which is designed to prime, set and finish your make up whilst keeping your skin hydrated. 
It's a fab product. I've been using it for all 3 things. I've found my make up can be applied smoother after using it as a primer. I love using it throughout the day as a spritz to keep my skin feeling refreshed. When I used it as a setting spray, it gives me a great glow and sets my make up for hours and hours.  I also quite often use it first thing in the morning to help my skin (aka me) wake up.


4) Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in Soft Rose

This was actually the very first lipstick I ever bought and i've been using it ever since. I recently ran out so I bought a new one. I wear it for a day look during the winter months. It leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturised and the colour lasts well.

That's it for my favourites for October. I did buy other beauty products but I haven't been to impressed with those. I'll have to share them in a different blog post.
