October + November Beauty Favourites
Yes, this post is very late but I've had so many christmas posts to publish first, anyway enough with the blogger excuses. Todays post is all about the products I was loving throughout October and November and some of them I've been loving throughout December too. There's a mix of makeup, skincare and bodycare so let's get started!


The one makeup product that I have been using almost every time I wear makeup over the past three or so months has been the amazing Mac Sculpt and Shape Powder in Accentuate/Sculpt (£26) from the Macnificent collection a while ago so it isn't available anymore but it's amazing. The contouring shade is just perfect for my super pale skintone and it isn't too pigmented.

Sticking with the more expensive products, I've also been loving the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light which just makes my skin look better, that's how I'm describing it. It adds a subtle glow, it blurs pores and it doesn't mattify my skin but it sets my makeup.

Now brows, I have been completely faithful to my Eye of Horus pencil and gel for so long but throughout October and November I used the Billion Dollar Brow Pencil (£17) so much as it is just so quick and easy to use.

Lastly for makeup is the Burts Bees Lip Gloss in Ruby Moon (£8.99) which I've had for ages and I always bring it back into my collection for the colder months as it diguises the look of dryness and it adds a lovely berry gloss to the lips but it isn't too dark/pigmented.


There are two fragrances that I've been wearing everyday, firstly the Roger and Gallet Fleur de Figuier EDP (£40.50) which I reviewed fully back in September. It's a lovely autumnal fragrance and the bottle is so pretty! The second perfume is one that I received in a set from Klout as a perk *Klout perks are the best thing ever* and it is Giorgio Armani Si EDP which as with the Roger and Gallet fragrance smells musky and autumnal - although Si is definitely stronger and richer.

Skincare & Bodycare

My final two products are ones that instantly became my autumn staples and I am still using them now; the Molton Brown Ylang Ylang Body Lotion (£25) which has to be the most heavenly smelling body lotion ever! Lastly, the Oilixia Brilliance Facial Oil (£37) which is a product I haven't been able to stop raving about since I received. I used it mainly in my evening skincare routine and it leaves my skin so moisturised, plump and smooth - also it doesn't ever irritate my eczema which is amazing!

I won't have a Decemeber favourites post this year as I will have my big round up of all the beauty products I've been loving throughout 2015 at the beginning of January so stay tuned. However here's my list of the products I haven't stopped using this month: The Wet Brush, MooGoo Skin Balm, Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb, Antipodes Mineral Foundation and The Body Shop Frosted Plum Body Butter.

Do you have any of these products? What were your favourite autumnal products? 


  1. I really want to try out the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder! It sounds incredible. It sounds like a 'my skin but better' kind of product x

  6. I found SI to be a tad too musky for me as it activated my allergies when I did a spritz test. :(

  7. I love a good Burt's Bees product, the lip gloss sounds lovely! The face oil sounds absolutely incredible, too :) xx


  8. I've used up my Molton Brown lotion as it's a complimentary amenity from a hotel. Love the scent of it but I wasn't sure which variant that I got :D
