October '17 Favourites

Firstly, Happy Halloween guys! I'm so excited to get dressed up tonight and go out, I love that I can go crazy with makeup and not be judged. 

October has been a pretty dull month, as the only thing that's really happened is starting back at University, which simply means less time for blogging, and more work to be done. However, since the drop of Student Finance I have discovered a few new favourites for this month, and I thought I would share them with you. 

1) Morphe 9B Blush Palette
Morphe is absolutely slayin' in the palette department at the moment, and this blush palette is no exception. There are a wide variety of shades, with some being more pink toned and some more coral, and then there is the random red shade which I cannot see myself ever wearing. Some of the blush shades are matte and some have a slight shimmer to them, and honestly aside from the red I love them all! They blend seamlessly into the skin and look super natural. I am hoping to get a post up about this palette ASAP, with lots of swatches for you guys.

2) Sigma E40 Tapered Blending Brush
I ordered two brushes from Sigma one night when I was a little merry, and I do not have buyers regret one bit! This is the brush I always see Jaclyn Hill use and her eyeshadow is as perfect as it gets, so I ordered it in hopes my makeup will one day be as perfect as hers. It is honestly the best blending brush I have ever used, and makes my eyeshadow so flawless. I love using it to apply my transition shade!

3) Colourpop Ultra Matte in Limbo
90's brown lip anyone? This is my absolute favourite lip colour of the month. Its super autumnal with a proper old school vibe and I love it. I don't find the Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks to be too drying either so this is perfect. Check out the swatch I did in this post. It's also an amazing dupe for Kylie's True Brown K, but at a much more affordable price.

4) Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Game Face
Who doesn't love a burnt copper eyeshadow with hella sparkle?! It's my favourite autumn colour for eyeshadow and these Colourpop shadows are the most pigmented and super blendable eyeshadows I have ever used in my life. They glide on the eyes and stay there for so long! To check out a swatch click here.

5) Body Shop Vitamin E Face Oil
My skin went through a really dry patch at the end of summer and it's now super glowy and moisturised, and I put it all down to this bad boy. I apply it before I go to bed under my normal moisturiser and when I wake up in the morning my skin is so soft, and my makeup applies so much nicer. I seriously recommend buying this for those of you who have dry skin, as it replenishes your skin and just makes it look super healthy. You can get 40% off orders until tomorrow with the code 14672!

6) My Protein CLA Capsules
If you'd have told me two years ago that I'd have been making an order on My Protein I literally would have laughed in your face. But I've got so into health and fitness recently (still partial to a whole 36 pack of Jaffa Cakes though don't worry!) and was researching good supplements to take to increase your metabolism. I have a super slow metabolism and suffer really badly from bloating, and CLA appeared to be the answer to both of those problems. Firstly I tried the CLA Capsules from Cute Nutrition,  which I got on so well with, but they charge so much for delivery so I decided to try the My Protein ones this time. They really do stop me from feeling so bloated after eating, I cannot comment on whether they have sped up my metabolism yet, but just for the fact I am not bloating so much I will continue to take these. 

Let me know in the comments what you have been loving this month!
