October: This Month I love

wow the end of October already. Only two months until Christmas!
This month I've tried a fair amount of new stuff, and they've actually made it into my monthly favourites because I like them so much!

First up are the Barry M Matte nail varnishes. I have 'Crush' (a dark red) and 'Caramel' (a nude-ish). These are brilliant, and do what they say on the bottle. I was a bit sceptical at first because I've tried other 'matte' nail varnishes, but they never worked. These however are great, and I'm actually going to buy the rest of the colours.

As well as new nail varnishes, I also bought a new lipstick this month. I've been looking for a plum coloured lipstick that wasn't MAC's Rebel and Nafisah from suggested I try Rimmel's Moisture Renew lipstick in '470 Glam Plum Fulham'. It is the PERFECT plum shade for me, and lasts hours on the lips. It's moisturising too so it won't dry your lips out in the colder months.

I've already written a review of the Illamasqua Skin Base foundation (here) and I really do love it. It's perfect for the colder months I think as the formula is light which means I can wear a good moisturiser underneath and not feel like I have too much product in my face.

The YSL Touche Éclat is a rediscovered product. I've been mixing it in with foundation to give myself a nice glow for when I'm still half asleep in the mornings.
As the weather has been changing and the wind has been more harsh, my hair has suddently become really frizzy and dry at the ends. The Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment has been a lifesaver for me. It really nourishes the ends and helps to keep them healthy.

What have you been loving this month?
