Sorry, October is my favourite month and I'm ridiculously excited to enter the month! Little rundown:
4th - Sister's 3rd Birthday
8th - Twinny's (A best friend) 21st Birthday
11th - Andy's (boyfriend) 21st Birthday
19th - My 21st Birthday
31st - Halloween!
I have a very busy month as it is, along with starting my dissertation for my final year of my law degree! However, let's talk about lovely things, like makeup of course.
You may have noticed I have a different background to my previous posts! I've moved into a student flat with Andy and have bought myself some lovely furniture and realising how often I saw lovely, oops.
Benefit Stay Don't Stray
I mentioned this in a post I did a while ago (here). My mum bought me this as part of an early 21st Birthday present and I've been wearing it a fair bit lately. I have the shade Light/Medium which is perfect for my pale skin. It helps my eyeshadow and liner stay put during the day, and helps hide the dark circles under my eyes too; a dual purpose product!
Benefit Hervana Blush
I also mentioned this in the above post, and love how it has different shades that you can swirl together or use individually. I'm loving these multi-purpose products apparently... Rosy pink blushers suit me best, as opposed to a more browny toned one, as I have pale skin and blonde hair. I love how blendable this is too, I can add a tiny bit to make me a bit flushed, quite natural looking, or for an evening out I can apply more heavily and blend to look more noticeable.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I've only had this a few days but I thought it was worth adding into my favourites! It lengthens my lashes without them looking like spiders legs (which I really don't like, as well as clumps). My lashes have never looked so long, and the thick brush makes applying it really effortless too.
Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer
This is applied under the Perversion Mascara and it has really helped my mascara stay on all day. I noticed over summer how my lashes looked thinner on days when I'd worn mascara all day. That really annoyed me, as it defeats the purpose of having longer, fuller lashes. This definitely helps avoid this.
Urban Decay Perversion Eyeliner
With bold claims of 24 hour stay, they tell the truth. This is super black on, and really does last all day. It's super smooth and worth the £15 you pay for it (not that I did, thanks Cohorted!).
Makeup Revolution Eyeliner
This I Heart Makeup All Day and Night eyeliner is absolutely gorgeous, with blue flex in the black formula. It doesn't last as long as UD's eyeliner, but it is most definitely worth it for £1.99!
