October Beauty Favourites

beauty, favourites, makeup, skincare



It only feels like 5 minutes since writing up my September Favourites, and we're already at the end of October! But, as always, I have five beauty products to share with you that I've been LOVING this month.
witch, beauty, skincare, serum, primer
Witch Daily Primer & Clearing Serum (£6.99*/Superdrug)
I received this in my East Mids Bloggers Meet Up goody bag and started using it straight away. A daily primer that evens out skin tone, helps hold makeup in place AND prevents spots. Pass me that Witch Hazel! I don't often suffer with spots nowadays but I'm prone to the odd hormonal friend making an appearance. I've been loving using this stuff. I've been using it most days, it works great as a gentle daily primer, soft and comfortable on the skin. I'd definitely pick this up again if it was on offer. 
beauty, primark, makeup, highlight, contour, sculpt

PS... Strobing Kit Highlighting Powder Palette (£5.00/Primark)
As with all things Primark, you can pick up some real beauties and you can get some bits that are not so great. And Primark's beauty range PS or PS Pro is no different. But when you find a little treasure, at this kind of price, it's worth raving about. I use this kit every single day, it contains 3 powders for sculpting and highlighting and they're just beautiful on the skin. I love playing around with them for a gentle, natural everyday look or going a little heavier on the sculpt and highlight for a more dramatic look. For a fiver, it's a great little product! Everyone should have one! :)
beauty, makeup, mascara, loreal
L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes So Couture Mascara (£9.99/Boots)
I'm not going to go all 'this is the best mascara I've ever used in my life' on you, but it's a bloody good mascara, will that do? :) The couture brush has been designed to coat every lash without clumps and gently thicken the lashes. It does exactly what it says on the... wand?! It's a good mascara, it opens up and defines my eyes, leaving my lashes looking long and thick ALL DAY. I've found that nowadays, my lashes have lost their natural curl and it takes a lot to keep a decent curl in all day, but this mascara seems to be doing the trick! I like it, it's a good un!
beauty, brush cleansing pad, primark
PS... Brush Cleansing Pad (£1.00/Primark)
Next up we have another Primark Beauty number for you, this time in the form of this pretty pink, silicone cleansing pad for brushes. For me, cleaning my brushes is a bit of a chore. I'll spot clean during the week but come Sunday it's time for a deep clean, so when I saw this for just a pound, a fraction of the cost of many other versions, I snapped it up in the hope it'd make cleaning my brushes a little easier. It has a sucker on the bottom to sit securely in the sink whilst you swirl your brushes in cleanser and massage them into the pad. It has 2 different textures to accommodate different brushes. It's definitely made cleaning my brushes quicker and easier. Rubbing the bristles into the cleansing pad, the brushes are getting a much better clean than they did when just swirling them in my hand. It's a no brainer, you and your make up brushes need this in your life!
beauty, skincare, toner, pixi beauty, glow tonic
Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner (£18.00/Pixibeauty)
Now, I've left this one till last but in no means is it the least favourite, in fact undoubtedly my most favourite product of the month. The famous Glow Tonic that everyone shouts about. The famous Glow Tonic that I eventually decided to get my hands on. Pixi Beauty is now taking pride and place in Marks & Spencers so I decided to grab a bottle. And well, why have I not been using this stuff forever? You know that moment when you find a skincare product that truly works, that truly makes your skin LOOK and FEEL amazing? Yep, well we're having that moment right now. It tones, tightens and firms the skin. TICK TICK TICK! It removes dead skin cells for healthier looking skin. TICK! I can't rave about this stuff enough, it honestly has dramatically changed my skin. I use it twice a day and I'll continue to use it for the foreseeable future. LOVE!

  4. I've been looking for a good primer, so will have to take a look at the Witch one. The one I'm using now isn't great and is £20 more expensive! Not sure about the mascara, I'm not a huge fan, I think it clumps the lashes together too much and I prefer natural makeup personally.
