October Favourites

October is coming to an end and it’s time to look back and see what I’ve been using mostly in the past few weeks.

Although it’s autumn, I’ve been reaching for nude nail polishes and even such with slightly pinky tones. Yves Rocher‘s Rose Pastel is more of a spring shade but I like it so much that I’ve been applying it very often in October. It’s a peachy pink, nude pastel shade with just a tiny bit of glitter and I like it on both my nails and toes.

My hair is not in the best condition right now, it always looks a bit meh in the colder months although I’m trying to take care of it. It’s very long and thick and it’s not very easy to deal with (planning to chop it pretty soon). I’ve mentioned the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Conditioning Spray here and it has been the product that helped me nourish my hair a little bit more along with some other oils and masks.

When I was younger I was really scared of putting a night cream on my combination skin, I thought it would get more oily and it would break out. Later, I got completely converted and now my skin is thanking me for applying oils and night moisturisers, so if you too are scared, don’t be. You just have to find the right products for your skin. I use Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Active Night Care and it’s very important for me to have this product in my evening skincare routine especially now when my skin feels more dehydrated.

I can’t believe that I’ve never mentioned Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder (review here) in a monthly favourites because since I got it in May, I haven’t stopped using it. It’s the perfect powder that eliminates the shine but keeps your face looking healthy…plus, it’s from the drugstore!

Nude lip lovers, the last one is for you. At first, I had a bit of a problem with Maybelline ColorSensational in 725 Tantalizing Taupe. When I swatched it in the store, it looked like a browny nude shade but when I got back home and put it on my lips, I got shocked because I witnessed the concealer lips problem. I’m not sure if the lipstick that I got is different or just the light in the store made me think it’s more brown that it really is but seeing bloggers’ reviews and swatches, I have to say that mine still looks lighter than the rest. Anyways, I decided to try applying it in a different way with just light dabbing motions and then top it with Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 06 Rosewood Shimmer (review here). The combination of these two lip products works much better for me.

What were your favourites in the month of October?
