OCTOBER BEAUTY FAVOURITES ♥

The warmer weather is certainly here and I think that my favourites from this month definitely reflect that! From tanners to nude wedges and a whole lot of coral...here are the products I have been loving this month! You can watch the video about my October Beauty Faves HERE or my October Lifestyle Faves HERE. Otherwise keep reading for more details on these incredible products that have made it into my monthly favourites.

St. Tropez Tanning Mousse ($40)
I have always wanted to try out this tanner as I have heard such amazing things about it but was quite sceptical because of it's hefty price tag. Thankfully I was gifted a bottle of the bronzing mousse to try out and was amazed at how incredible it is! The thing about St. Tropez is that is has a green undertone to it unlike a lot of other tanners which have an orange undertone and give that unappealing Cheetos colour. The mousse is extremely blendable for a natural finish and it even has a beautiful scent unlike most fake tans I have tried in the past. A more thorough and in-depth review is coming soon.

Clinique Sparkly Skin Body Exfoliating Cream ($50)
Something also associated with tanning is exfoliating and so I have been using this product to prep my skin before applying the St. Tropez tanner. This ensures a smooth surface for the tan to glide over and also prevent blotchiness in application. I will be doing a full review on this product as I know it's quite expensive and not something you would typically spend so much money on. I do really love this product though because it has an extremely concentrated formula where a little goes a long way and the most calming mint scent that fills up the whole shower for a relaxing spa like experience.

Napoleon Perdis Makeup Kit (InStyle Gift with Purchase, $12.95)
I blogged about this a week or so ago where you received three full sized Napoleon Perdis product with the lastest InStyle magazine and thought it was such an incredible deal that I made it a favourite of the month. I have really been enjoying the lipgloss as it is perfect to go over any lipstick, especially great for livening up a nude. The cream blush is a gorgeous natural colour that I have loved using and it has been lovely to match the lipgloss with the blush. The gift with purchase for this month's magazine is still available so definitely go get yourself a copy if you are interested in these products.

MesmerEyez Blue Contact Lenses
October is Halloween month and I got festive by creating three costume looks this year; two of which required me to change my eye colour from aqua to bright blue. So I used these blue contacts for my Superwoman and Sleeping Beauty tutorials and thought it was such a nice change, it's crazy what a difference changing your eye colour makes!

Chi Chi Coral Nail Polish (Party Princess Set, $18)
Now you all know how much I love my coral..if ever there is an option to buy something in coral you sure know that is the one I am going to choose. I don't know what it is but I have a weakness, some may say unhealthy obsession. So it's needless to say that I love keeping my nails painted coral; whether that be my fingers or toes you are guaranteed to find me painted in coral somewhere. I have been keeping this polish under wraps for so long because until now you couldn't get your hands on it as this particular colour is only included in the Christmas set. It's one of my all time favourite nail colours so I would highly recommend tracking it down at your nearest Target, David Jones or Myer.

Lime Crime Geradium Lipstick ($18)
Continuing on with my coral obsession, this is a lip colour that have been wearing a lot lately because it's brighten and fun but still fresh and young looking. I also love the formulation of Lime Crime lipsticks because they are so smooth and creamy while still being long lasting.

Holster Covergirl Jewel Champagne ($69.99)
I received this gorgeous pair of wedges as part of the Holster Summer Style Club campaign currently running and they are absolutely stunning! The colour and style is perfect for Summer as a stylish pair of shoes for the warmer weather. They can be worn casually with a maxi dress for shopping or dressed up to be worn out to dinner; a very versatile shoe that I can tell is going to be one of my go-to pair this season.

Those are all my beauty favourites from this month, please let me know what you have been loving as I am always looking for new products to try!

 Thanks for reading ♥
