October Favourites

Every month I try so hard not to start my monthly favourites with.. woah its favourites time already, but October felt super speedy! - so basically I just said it but in a different way? haha.

My favourites for the month of October are..

Urban Decay - Perversion Mascara and Subversion Eye Lash Primer
I'm not usually too fussy with mascara, when I find a good one I stick to it - unlike most beauty things where I tend to keep buying just to find the next best one *blusher cough cough*.
But recently I have been trying a few more here and there, and this Urban Decay duo is one I have been really impressed with. This is the only time I recall my other half commenting on how huge my lashes look too.
I bought these both in a little value set where you get the full size mascara (Perversion) and a sample size primer (Subversion). After curling my lashes I apply the Subversion primer which adds length and then over the top I add a few coats of the mascara, then boom - huge long fluttery lashes which don't smudge and hold a curl all day...winner winner!

£17 from Debenhams

Korres - Wild Rose Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial
I'm not going to say to much on this as I have a full review of this and another Korres AHA mask coming up - which are both pretty fantastic, but this particular one has been treating my skin so well recently.
It works similar to the Origins Drink Up Intensive mask because it sinks into your skin while you sleep. I even think I may prefer the Korres one just because its a lot more comfortable to wear over night.
After using this my skin is much more hydrated and plumper, it also has got rid of any dry patches I've had which is brilliant, perfect for these colder months.

£26 40ml

Charlotte Tilbury - Cheek to Chic Blusher in Love Glow
What another Charlotte Tilbury item..me..no!! what can I say, I bloomin love a bit of CT.
When it comes to blusher, I don't think I could ever do my daily makeup without it..im a total blush-a-holic.
I purchased two of Charlotte Tilbury's blushes at the same time, Love Glow and Sex On Fire. Love Glow is a mixture of two shades, the outer ring is a darker rosy pink which you apply to your cheek bones, and the middle is a pale peach/pink which you pop on the apples of your cheeks. This made it to the favourites because it really brightens and gives a youthful look to my face, I think these colours work beautifully together. The finish is amazing, as is the pigment....oh and that signature CT packaging helps.


Nuxe - Reve De Miel Lip Balm
I have had this for absolutely ages and I'm not even near finishing it yet. These last couple of weeks my lips have been feeling real dry thanks to the cold weather and central heating. I have been using this and my Lush lip scrub every night before bed and its been working a treat. Even my partner and son have been using this to fix their chapped lips, it's great for everyone because it goes on completely matte and really hydrates.
It has a very thick consistency which is why I mostly use before bed, but when I wake in the morning I can still feel it on my lips, it's so so good...it also smells like chocolate orange.


Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Palette
Again, I wont say too much on this as it has a whole review of its own, including swatches HERE. I have been using this pretty much every day, its such a versatile palette. I have been using the matte, brown shades the most for an every day look. I used to be more of a shimmery shadow girl but recently I've been loving mattes; so I'm pretty tempted to delve into the Urban Decay naked basics zone - 1 or 2 though?


What things have you been enjoying in the month of October? Have you tried any of my Favourites? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for reading,

Love Zoe x


  1. Never tried an Urban Decay mascara, cause like you I stick to the ones I like. But I would like to mix it up a little! What do you think the Korres moisturiser would be look for combination/sensitive skin? I really need a night time moisturiser x

  2. That Urban Decay mascara and primer sound promising! I read a review post on it just today so me thinks I meed to try it!
    I've been loving my Maybelline instant anti age the eraser concealer (quite a long name there hahah) it works wonders!



  3. Oh really, you should try it out, a lot of people seem to love it too. It's more of a mask hun but it would act as your moisturiser :) I have the same skin and I find it really gentle, it's beautiful xx

  4. Yeah it's brilliant! You should try it a lot of people seem to like it from what I've seen. Oh yeah I know that one I'll have to try that as I'm nearly out of my wake me up one by maybelliene xx

  5. I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally want that Too Faced chocolate palette!

  6. I love my Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm as well, it's a nightstand staple of mine. I really want to try CT eye palettes but this dual-ton blush concept really intrigues me too! Love glow looks really brightening indeed!

  9. Lovely favourites - I really want to try the Korres and Too Faced! xx

  10. The UD perversion is amazing. I wasn't sure on it before buying, as with a lot of hyped up products they can be OTT. But this lives up to it! So great for my lashes! it will definitely be in my October faves too :)


  11. That Charlotte Tilbury blush is gorgeous and is on my wishlist. Will probably be the next thing I'm gonna pick up from her line. Love the Nuxe Reve de Miel too. My lip saviour this time of the year. xx
