October 2013 Top Ten Beauty Products

Better late than never right!  I picked up a few new things in October and a few of them became favourites.  Here's my Top Ten Beauty Products I loved in October...

NYX Blush in Summer Peach
These blushes are just as fantastic as everyone says they are.  They're so cheap so I wasn't expecting too much but they're awesomely pigmented and you only need a small amount swept across the cheeks.  Lovely summery colour too.

NYX Blush in Taupe
I have always used Benefit Hoola for contouring but with my fair skin I have to be very careful to not apply too much as it's very pigmented.  This matte contour colour is not as dark and is more neutral toned so I can go a bit heavier with it and I think it would be very hard to apply too much.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
I found this hiding in the back of my foundation drawer and started using it again.  I can't remember why I stopped using this as it gives a really awesome coverage without looking cakey.  My favourite way to apply is with my fingers as it helps the product warm up and sink into my skin.  If I use a brush or my beauty blender it just doesn't have the same finish.  I've nearly finished this and I can't decide wether to pick up another bottle or try something new.

Janesce Softening Refresher Spray
This came in a beauty box once upon a time and as the weather has warmed up I've been using this as a refresher during the day.  It has a lovely soft fragrance and feels lovely and hydrating on the skin.

MUA Power Pout in Broken Hearted
I'm a huge fan of the Revlon Balm Stains and this product is very similar.  The only difference is it has a slightly more dewy/shiny finish and doesn't quite last as long on the lips. Still a great product and I've been loving this colour.

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee
It's been a while since I wore lipgloss but these glosses are amazing.  Creme Bruless smell's delicious, just like you'd imagine and it's so soft and creamy on the lips.  It has some colour to it but not overpowering and is in no way sticky at all.  Will definitely be picking up some more of these now that NYX has landed in Target in Australia.

MUA Matte Pallette
I'm loving these Matte shades from MUA and with a primer underneath I have no problem with them lasting all day.  The MUA palettes are so cheap and while they could've added in some different colours I'm really enjoying using this.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter
I much prefer powder highlighters over liquid/cream and applied over my blush this gives a perfect highlighting shimmer to my cheekboxes.  It's lovely and cool-toned too with no hints of gold so it works really well with my fair skin.

Furless Brushes x2 - Stippling & Contour
I picked up a set of Furless brushes a couple of months ago which I'm still set to review but these 2 brushes are my absolute favourite.  I use the stippling brush soley for my blusher everyday and the contour brush - yup you guessed it - to contour.  They're the perfect size and they pick up and apply product very easily and smoothly.  Definitely check Furless out if you're in the market for some new brushes.

And that wraps up my Favourites for October!

  1. I like the look of those brushes. How would you rate them against RT?

    1. I actually prefer them over RT. In saying that I only have the eye kit of Real Techniques but I hardly use it as I find I have better brushes than that like the Furless ones.

  2. I'm dying to get my hands on that highlighter! It seems so perfect especially for the price.
