October Favourites

I feel like I'm repeating myself with quite a few of these selections, but I'm all for hearing about the top notch products that someone always uses so figured I'd share what I'd been loving for the month of October anyway. I was firmly focused on using up some makeup and skincare during the month as well as purging my nail polish collection so I didn't trial too much in terms of new products, but I did fall in love with a new lip combination, test out a new release foundation and fall back in love with some old favourites. 
I stuck to primarily one look this month, and it was a quick and simple one that had me out the door fast whilst still looking pulled together (I hope!) My main base of choice was a sample pot of the newly released Too Faced Born This Way Foundation that a lovely sales assistant at Mecca Maxima Doncaster gave me - this is definitely on the to-buy list and a little birdy told me a lighter shade is being released in early '16 so am waiting it out for now...eyes were my Inglot Trio Palette which looks quite new despite being thrashed around all the time at Chez Bovary! I then alternated between two lip looks for the month - either a swipe of MAC Vamplify Lipgloss in Anything but Demure*, or a layering of Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner Eastend Snob + Colourpop Westie + MAC Cremesheen Glass Fashion Scoop for a complex but perfect pale pink lip look.
Lovely smelling favourites were my Travalo perfume atomiser which helped me use up a few perfumes and my L'Occitane Lavande Cologne* which is serious bedroom luxury. I was going to sneak in a picture of my new nail polish drawers (I'm seriously obsessed!) but they aren't fully organised yet so I'm going to save that for another day. I also couldn't post a favourites without mentioning the skincare that I've fallen in love with and am sad to be finishing up - Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, it was love at first scoop!
What products did you love in the month of October?
What cleansing balm do you think I should try next?
*Products provided for consideration. Honesty, always.


  1. The inglot trio looks lovely. I wanna try the Rimmel lip liner and the Clinique cleansing balm

  2. I've heard so many good things about the Rimmel lip pencils - might need to pick up one or two! I've been enjoying the Clinique cleansing balm though I prefer my DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. My DHC is on its last legs though so I'll be switching to the Clinique full time soon :)

  3. I like the Rimmel lip liners, they are creamy and easy to use. I'm about to use the Napoleon Perdis cleansing balm once I finish my current makeup remover.

  4. As usual you have some really lovely favorites... I love the look of that Inglot trio :)
    It seems as if a lot of people LOVE Travalo and since I didn´t I´m thinking that I got a bad sample or something :)
