October Favourites 2013

Hey gorgeous ones.  Another month has been and gone, which means one thing... another monthly favourites post!  Here's a rundown of what I've been loving in the month of October...

  • Bourjois Happy Light Foundation in 51 Rose Vanilla
    For me, Bourjois are the bosses of the highstreet foundations.  They just seem to know exactly how to make them.  They certainly win my vote and their new Happy Light range didn't disappoint.  I've been wearing this on my face pretty much every day since I bought it and I'm loving it so far.  See my review here.
  • L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Mist for Fine Hair
    I posted a review this month on this amazing oil!!  If you don't own this (either this or the normal pump version) then you are really missing out!  I'm chuffed to bits that I finally found an oil that will soften my dry ends and leave my hair feeling weightless and flowing.  I'll be definitely repurchasing this.
  • Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me Yesss, I jumped on the bandwagon.  But who can blame me?  The new Maybelline Baby Lips are so cute and perfect for winter!  I chose Cherry Me as I LOVE anything cherry flavoured, plus the subtle tint is lovely.  I've been keeping this in my handbag since I bought it and using it pretty much every day.  Beaut! 
  • Seventeen Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter
    Who doesn't love a good highlighter? I've been loving this recently.  I haven't used it '3 ways', but simply using it as a classic cheekbone highlighter and it works really well and leaves a really subtle glow.  Try it out if you haven't already.
  • Lush Shampoo Bar in Jumping Juniper
    I was on the lookout on google and twitter for a good shampoo for greasy hair.  My hair is quite fine and doesn't last more than 2 days between washes which is sooo annoying.  Even by the 2nd day I usually have to use dry shampoo on it.  A few people mentioned the shampoo bars in Lush so I thought I'd give one of them a go.  Jumping Juniper is aimed at greasy hair as it's a clarifying shampoo.  I'd never used a shampoo bar before and was a bit sceptical about the lather but it works really well and my hair feels really clean (it actually squeaks when I first rinse it off, lol).  I'm not sure it's made it last any longer than usual between washes, but the second day it doesn't seem as bad so I could probably get one more day out of it.  Been enjoying it so far, keep your eyes peeled for a full review.
  • Primark Black and White Tartan Scarf - £5
    I was actually in Primark for their classic Red Tartan scarf but they didn't have any in (boooo), and then I spotted this bad boy.  It has now become my favourite scarf.  Its a great size, and lovely and soft.  Perfect for autumn/winter!
