I’ve never done one of these things before, and kind of find it intimidating to divulge what I’ve been really digging in the month of October. October was a weird month for me that seemed both impossibly slow and incredibly fast. Did Halloween really happen four days ago? I feel like it shouldn’t have happened for another couple weeks, but alas, we’ve already experienced October and the following things are what I loved during the month.

Real Techniques Blush Brush


It’s a brush for your blush that you apply on your cheeks to give you a superficial blush. I used to hate blush because I have a lot of redness in my face already, but once I found a color that worked for me, I’m really into adding pink on the apples of my cheeks (what a weird expression, apples of one’s cheeks). Anyway, it’s cheap and good and made by the Pixiwoo sisters, who are rad.

Essie Mink Muffs


I stumbled across this color at Wal-Mart on sale. I wasn’t too sure about the color at first, to be honest. But ended up falling in love with the muted gray and brown undertones.

Origins Clear Improvement


Horror of horrors, I have acne and blackheads and this shit works wonders for both of them. I use it a couple times a week when I feel like I’m starting to stress out and my skin feels gross, which is a lot more often lately. Before I eat breakfast in the morning or during my nightly routine, I’ll pop this on and give it about 10 minutes before rinsing off with a warm cloth and I’ve seen a great improvement in my skin’s texture and pore situation.

Burberry Brit Perfume


I ran out of this awhile back and have been using other perfumes in place of Brit, but when you love a scent, you just can’t give it up.

Bumble and Bumble Creme de Coco


This shampoo is so great. It smells like coconut and lathers really easily. Although the bottle is small and the price is high, you only need a small amount of the shampoo and next day hair is not as greasy as it was when I use other shampoos. For me, I get a longer use out of this shampoo than I have with others in the past.

Ponds Dry Skin Cream


I get terribly bored with moisturizers quickly. However, my grandma and mother are the one that introduced me to this little guy. I’ve been using this all month and my skin feels SO good, even in the dry air.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains


These are my go-to lip products. I’m horrible with putting on lipsticks because they always wear off on my mouth, but these babies stay in place all FREAKING DAY! These are my two favorite colors out of the collection. The red is the New York color and the berry color is the Parisian shade.


I apologize about my nail polish at the moment. It is very chipped because I keep forgetting to re-paint them. Bad beauty blogger.

  1. Love all of the products, save the lippes! I’ve tried a couple of the colors, and I think they don’t like my lip texture or something strange. They crack immediately and get funky. I’m glad they work for you! The colors are so pretty!


    1. I find that if you exfoliate the lips before putting it on, it helps with the cracking. Especially in the winter, my lips are awful with cracking and keeping lip products on, and exfoliating has really helped me. My favorite one is “Popcorn” by LUSH. 🙂
